55+ Minimalist Wallets for Men

Contents

Wallets are one thing all us guys use, in some form. Even if we’re not in the habit of carrying large wads of cash around, we inevitably have a few credit cards or bank cards to our name that we use to pay for things. With contactless becoming increasingly popular and prevalent, and chip ‘n’ pin payment cards being standard, wallets are still very much a must-have accessory. One issue with many wallets though, we’re sure you’ll agree, is just how bulky and cumbersome they can be. Sure, they might have that rustic Old West leather vibe and may be able to hold all the cards you need and all the cash you need, there’s also room to fill with all those things you never need.

So, with a normal, bog standard, traditionally-sized bifold or trifold wallet, you’ve got a lot of space being taken up by a lot of cards, receipts, money, spare buttons and other unmentionables you’ll probably survive without. That’s not mention the fact that trying to slip that bulky wallet in and out of your tight jeans pocket, or well, just any pocket indeed, is a real nightmare. Then you need to fight your way through it to find the card you need, which, is often right at the bottom or tucked in somewhere. Although these are not serious gripes, when you’re at the supermarket or a busy bar and several people are waiting behind you to move the hell on, it can be a major pain.

If that sounds like a common scenario for you when you need to buy something or pay for something, you’re not alone. Many other people feel the same with the same experienced. Which is why many invest in a more minimalist wallet than that bulky but beautiful bifold. A minimalist wallet, often referred to as a skinny wallet, ultra thin wallet, ultra slim wallet or even super slim wallet, is the perfect option for the modern man. The modern man that doesn’t want to be lumbered down carrying every card he owns, but instead just wants the ones he needs and some cash.

If you’re looking for a guide to the best wallets for men, therefore, and have decided that minimalist wallets are the kind you’re after, but don’t know want to look through pages and pages on Google or Amazon, then you’ve come to the right place. The following is our ultimate guide to the best minimalist wallets of 2019. If you can’t find one that suits you in this selection, we’re not sure you’ll ever be able to.

We’re starting this guide especially strong with a lightweight and compact wallet offering from one of the most highly regarded brands on the market, Bellroy.

From The Frenchie Co. comes the unsubtly but incredibly apt Speed Wallet. As you’d probably guess, it’s so-called due to how easy it is to get access and use the cards and money you need on a day to day basis. Rather than rooting and digging around a bulky and over-complicated wallet, you can just locate and pull the plastic or bill you want. Nice and quickly.

It holds up to 10 cards, though may stretch to more, depending on how many bills you have in it and its secured shut by a magnetic closure. With the RFID-blocking tech and its beautiful leather finish, this is a winner for any stylish gent. Now you can be the quickest draw in the west, or at least when it comes to getting a round of drinks in or when you’re networking and want to show-off your business card in slick and swift fashion.

Operating on behalf of Amazon, the appropriately-named Leather Architect are the makers of the next wallet in our guide. This is a simple, but gorgeous slim wallet made from genuine leather with a pebbled finish and tonal stitching. The style and quality really belies the fact that’s simply an own branded item from Amazon.

As well as its ID window slot, it also has 4 separate credit card slots, the RFID-blocking that’s becoming a standard and will not feel too bulky or heavy in your pocket or bag. At an incredibly affordable price, the quality of the workmanship and materials is unbelievable.

The second Trayvax wallet in our guide is this toughened leather front pocket model that’s specifically designed for regular use over a long period of time. Although it’s not as tricked-out as the Element wallet, this has a single plate of high-quality stainless-steel that has been notched to provide you with a nice and comfortable grip. As with the Trayvax Element, the Ascent features only the finest leather.

There’s space for a maximum of 7 cards in the slots, with another 2 to 3 able to fit in the ID slot with display window. One thing, over everything else that’s worth highlighting though is the fact it comes with an outstanding 65-year (heirloom) guarantee.

Fossil are well known for producing cost-effective accessories, including watches and like this Derrick model here, wallets. It’s been fashioned from 100% leather and features the RFID-blocking tech to protect your identity and digital financial accounts.

In terms of storage, there’s 8 credit card or business card slots, along with a billfold pocket for all your cash money and additional space in the form of 2 slide pockets that sit behind the main credit card slots. Slim and stylish, this is a great wallet for its price.

Cicero, as leather goods manufacturers, believe that their responsibility to their customers is to deliver only the best-looking items made from the highest quality materials. With this sexy bifold wallet, that’s exactly the case. Full-grain leather has been utilized to stunning effect to produce a durable and strong wallet.

There’s space for 10 cards as well as space for a reasonable amount of cash money too. Space for the cards comes in the form of the 6 easy-access slots, with 2 special concealed compartments behind them too.

The second wallet from Ekster, suitably called Senate, is a great minimalist leather wallet constructed from premium Dutch and German leathers and has an extremely thin profile at just 0.59-inches.

Despite that, it still has space for between 4 and 6 cards, and 8 or even more at a push. As ever, it’ll depend on the number of dollar bills you’ll be carrying too. Like the Parliament model, we did think that this has a bit of an odd design, but the pull-out tab that carries the cards is perfect for hassle-free access to your plastic.

Another great card and money holder from Ted Baker is the Looeze leather wallet. With the pebble leather finish, 8 credit or business card slots and 4 slip storage spaces, you have more than enough room for everything you could need daily.

Although you may prefer a wallet with a magnetic or clip/fastener closure, this has an easy and quick-access lack of closure, that means you can just flip it open easily. The brown leather is kinda plain, but there is the nice Ted Baker logo that is a good indicator of the experience and skill that’s gone into its manufacture.

If you’re not a fan of leather and want something a little softer to the touch, you should consider the Leef Felt wallet and card holder. It’s made, as the name suggests, from 100% felt wool and is called Leef as it enables you to leaf through your bills and cards easily, so you don’t have to fold anything and can take what you need out quickly.

As well as being soft, the felt also gives the wallet a very lightweight feel and will slip nicely into your pocket. So, you won’t get the that weighed down and awkward feeling leather wallets you often get from leather wallets. The RFID card protection is a nice but expected touch. Most amazingly though, the best thing about this attractive card and money holder is its price.

So-called ‘simplicity by design’, the I-CLIP is a great minimalist wallet option. The focus the designers had was on functionality, usability and simplicity, after all and that is very evident when you look at it. It eliminates uncomfortable and unsightly bulges in your pockets, has a lightweight construction thanks to the high-quality materials used to build it and even has an extremely high capacity. In addition to the space for cards, there’s also a built-in money clip.

We especially love the use of top-grain cowhide leather with what’s known as Robutense, a cutting-edge lightweight plastic-based composite that only weighs around ½ an ounce.

Durable and robust brushed stainless-steel and top-grain leather are used to great effect in this handy and lightweight wallet from Forrest & Harold. Despite its slim profile of just 0.8-inches thick, there’s still space for a total of 8 plastic cards, whether it’s your credit, debit or business cards. In addition, though, there’s also the display window slot for an ID card.

Forrest & Dean put their money where their mouth is when it comes to backing their products. As a result, you get a full 1-year warranty if anything happens to it in that first year of ownership. It probably won’t and that’s what the company are banking on but having that peace of mind is great.

Duebel is the company behind the next high-quality leather in our guide. With a thickness of just 0.4-inches, it’s amazing to think that between the 5 slots for cards and cash there’s room for anything between 8 to 10 cards and a little cash too.

Simple and elegant, is what we’d home in on being the key descriptors of this wallet. Whether it’s the beautiful stitching work or the magnetic closure that makes opening and closing it a pleasant experience, this is one cool accessory.

Andar are a popular manufacturer known for crafting unique items that are perfect for everyday use and ensuring that your life is an organized one. This wallet is made using high-quality leather and elastic and includes space for anything from 1 to 8 cards, though it depends on just how much money you are also carrying.

The 1 central slot and 3 quick-access card slots mean you are not fussing around trying to pull out that one card between all the others that you really need. They are all organized and spaced out enough, despite the wallet only being 0.3-inches in width and weight just under 1lb.

RFID-blocking is one of the key features of this robust and rather futuristic-looking slick card holder and wallet. The Martrams wallet even incorporates a slightly different material in combination with the aluminum that so many feature – carbon-fiber. This not only gives it a cool AF and appealing look, but also lends its lightweight properties to the money and card-carrying option.

With space for up to 12 cards, they really weren’t messing around when they designed this thing. Inexpensive, high capacity, but still low-profile and well-organized enough that you’ll wonder what the hell you’ve been doing without it for so long.

VBax were a company that were once called Ebax. Whatever they want to call themselves, they’re responsible for a high-end, but ultimately very affordable leather wallet. Designed with slimming your pockets down in mind, that is what they successfully achieved with this product.

There’s space for as many as 10 cards plus a healthy amount of bills. That means even if you’ve got a credit card, debit card, driver’s license, gym membership card and even a fricking library card, you’ve got enough space in this awesome little wallet. We love how easy it is to access the cards too and the fact it helps protect your financial accounts and digital ID from cloning tech, is the cherry on top of an ultimately tasty and classy cake.

We’d be lying if we said reviewing this wallet didn’t make us drool a little. It’s just so darn sexy! From a company that was established in 2014 with a commitment to function, quality and innovation – it’s not surprising that this wallet is so cool. First things first, it looks the bomb. But, more importantly than that, it’s a rather small and inconspicuous bomb that outperforms many of its bulkier bigger cousins.

Isn’t it hard to pries those cards out? Not at all, and there’s also the fact you get easy access to the 4 cards you use the most out of the 15 it can hold. One major issue many people have with minimalist wallets is that you either get easy-access to your cards or a slim profile, but rarely both. That’s not the case with the Nomatic from Basics.

When a wallet claims to be thinner than a 0.022kg pencil, you should always take more than a passing glance at it. Especially if you’re in the market for a minimalist-style wallet. And really, why would you be here for any other reason? The Inscribe Self slim wallet we’re featuring here is made from high-quality real leather and incorporates a few different pockets.

Those pockets provide enough space for anything between 7 and 9 cards. Though the amount yours fits at any one time will depend largely on how many bills you’re carrying. There’s even a secret pull-out tab where you can store your most valued cards to protect them from RFID scanners and thieves looking to steal your money, cards and identity. The beautiful leather is finished nicely with a stainless-steel logo pierced into it, with precision and care.

For any of you guys that don’t really like leather or a lot of aluminum in your wallets, this is perfect. 1-inch thickness means that although there’s some out there that are slimmer, this is still worth considering because it has space for15 cards.

Not only that, but those cards are protected by RFID-blocking tech and you can easily access the cards you need when you them using the simple push and pinch technique. That’s even though there’s a color band tightly secured around the wallet. To match your differing style, you also get 4 colored bands to choose from to hold your money in place.

Touted as being the company’s most-refined leather wallet up until this point, the Trayvax Contour is certainly something that commands your attention the moment you clap your eyes on it.

Do you consider yourself to be something of a gearhead? If so, this rather nifty mini wallet might be what you need in your life. From Mercedes Benz AMG, this little cutie shares the style, sophistication and AMG metallic badge that you expect from the German automotive geniuses. Although it may not have quite as many card slots as some in our guide, it makes up for that in cool swagger.

In super sexy black, it has a carbon-fiber look but is 100% genuine leather.

Saddleback Leather Co. are one of the former though and it’s easy to see why this company is so popular, as a manufacturer of all kinds of leather-based goods.

Whereas the above is from a company that most reading this guide will have heard of and are a fan of, Travelambo is another that you’ve more than likely not heard of. However, despite the name not being one we’re all familiar with, this thin wallet is worth highlighting because of the extremely high card capacity it offers, of 29 cards, as well as there being space for cash too.

As well as that, they’ve also incorporated RFID-blocking technology that as we’ve noted at many times throughout this guide, is what you need if you want to fight against the modern thieves. This has had a lot of effort, patience and skill put into its design and construction, with very hands-on technicians.

From Thread Wallet comes this slim credit card holder that has been designed to meet the company’s unique motto of ‘no boring wallets. Rather than being designed to be used horizontally, this is used vertically, which makes it instantly different from most of the wallets in our guide. With fine leather used throughout the construction, it’s also been made to a high standard of quality.

When it comes to space, there’s enough room for between 2 and 8 cards, depending on how many you need daily and the amount of cash you’re currently carrying. Therefore, if you’re not someone who likes to carry every single membership card, credit card, debit card and discount card they own with them, this is a great choice. Another unique element to this card holder is the D-ring that’s been incorporated into it, that makes it easy to connect the wallet to lanyards, keys, backpacks or just about anything else you might fancy. Did we mention it looks great too?

You may not, admittedly, have heard of Spiex, but based on the high-quality product that is this genuine 100% leather slim and minimal wallet, you probably should learn more about the company. For one thing, 100% leather should be commanding your undivided attention, as well as the fact that this card holder-style wallet is on the market for a ridiculously competitive and, importantly, low price. The fact that it also comes with the RFID-blocking technology that is one of the most sought after features of modern wallets too, should have you almost hook, line and sunk.

What more could we say to entice you to this seemingly budget price and not worth a second glance wallet? Oh, the fact that it has 4 different card slots, 1 clear ID display window slot for ID of whatever type you need to carry, 2 additional functional slots for cards, and a larger pocket where you can place the cards you use the most, money, receipts and anything else you want to keep in there that’s slim and essential for everyday life (we’re not going to join the dots on that thing though, use your imagination sunshine!) So, space, function, durability and quality this credit card holder has in spades. It also doesn’t hurt that it’s quite sexy too.

We’d be lying if we said this didn’t remind us of several other wallets featured in this guide from other companies and brands. Because, clearly it does. Once you’ve seen over 50 wallets, you’ve seen just about every possibility and what can be done with a wallet. Does that mean that this is merely just another throwaway option? We can’t agree with that statement. Because look at it. Look at just how small, portable and even a little sultry it is. That stainless-steel metal strap-like component, with the very distinctive and elegant W in the circle. Don’t you just wish you had it in front of you, so you could see whether it was textured or not?

Okay, maybe you’re right…maybe we’ve reached that stage in this guide when we’ve looked at so many wallets that we’ve grown unnaturally attached to them and desire them in bizarre ways. However, when you’ve got something you use to carry bank cards, credit cards, business cards and other important items from your day to day life, it’s an important part of you. Without getting too philosophical, we’re not mad, but you are for thinking we are. This has a very simple look that’s appealing, the fact it’s easy to use and can store up to 10 cards with RFID-blocking tech to boot, makes it all the sweeter an option.

We’re about to get deep and philosophical for the next and final item in our guide. We’d like to ask you a question – when does a minimalist wallet stop being a wallet and more just a frame for holding cards. If you could imagine in your head the simplest way to carry important cards, so that they are visible, easy to access and will not take up too much space in your pockets or wherever you store them, but also protect the structural integrity of your cards, would it look like the image above? The DM1 does not just claim to be a minimalist wallet. It is a minimalist wallet in the truest sense. In fact, it’s barely a wallet at all. We’d welcome complaints about its inclusion in our guide.

That was, if it wasn’t for the fact that it was so damn cool. What better way to show how minimalist you are than bucking with the trend of all that material being used, that opting for something that has just one piece of metal. One finely and smoothly cut piece of titanium that is designed to snugly hold the average credit, business, membership, license or anything else style of card. No rubber bands, straps, magnets, snaps, hinges, screws. There’s also no RFID-blocking tech, which means it can easily work with contactless and building access systems. It is, simply, very simply, a card holder. And a damn fine one at that, in principle, concept and actual reality.

Back with Bellroy again and this time the Bellroy Low Down minimalist wallet. As is the case with most products made by Bellroy, this wallet has been crafted using top-grain environmentally-certified leather and even comes with a full 3-year guarantee. It’s slim and has a tapered construction that is ideal for the shorter bills you get here in the US compared to other places around the world. You’ll be amazed to realize that the company put this together using just two good pieces of leather.

What it does in a low-key way, it does well. There’s space at the back for your bills to lie flat, safe and secure, while two of your most-used cards can sit in the central and frontal quick-access spots. Any others that you like to carry on your person most of the time, but don’t immediately need access to, can be hidden in the 6 other spots without the need for additional leather layers. That’s what other companies do and that’s why their designs always feel complicated and hard to manage. Due to its shape, it’ll suit you if you’re looking for a simplistic wallet, but one that still offers a full-format.

One of the most striking features of this wallet from Dango Products that sets it apart from others is the 4 loops holes that have been worked into each corner of the metallic chassis. These can be used in whatever way you prefer – for tethers, lanyards or even keys. So, rather than just being the slim profile thing, you use to carry your cash and plastic around in. This wallet can become so much more and is fully adaptable to provide you with the ever-changing functionality that could be different from one day to the next.

The second Distil Union minimalist wallet in our guide is this Wally Agent one. Made from durable and robust leather, this has a classic bifold design without all the bulk and weight that often comes with these kinds of cash and card-carrying options. At just 0.3-inches there’s no chance that this will take up too much space in a pocket or bag, even with all 12 spaces for cards used and money too. Like the other Wally wallet, we featured further up the page, this comes with the exclusive and trademarked Pull-Tab that keeps 4 cards securely.

One particularly impressive thing is that, unlike many other minimalist wallets, this has been designed to carry not just US currency, but that from other places too. Also, similarly to the other Wally wallet it benefits from being NFC compatibility. This means that if you’ve got a keyless entry card for your home or work premises or want to use your contactless cards without removing it from the wallet. Additionally, it’s fitted with RFID-Shielding that helps to protect your cards and sensitive financial information from digital thieves looking to clone your cards and steal your identity.

The only major downside we’d pick out about this wallet is its size, because it’s only got space for 6 cards.

Minimalism is the name of the game when it comes to the wallets we’ve been looking at and they surely don’t get more minimal than this one. With space for 20 cards, it’s got one of the biggest capacities in our guide, but the most amazing thing is that, compared to other leather card holders and wallets, it’s 2 to 3 times thinner.

As part of being thinner and more minimal than others, it’s also a lot lighter. So, even when you’ve got a wallet full of cards and some cash, the SlimFold will never feel too bulky or too much. Each individual card slot can hold 2 and it accommodates the contents. When you’re just using a slot for a single card, it readjusts its shape and holds it securely.

At just 2.4-ounces, it’s hardly a heavyweight wallet and will never feel too big or thick, even when all the business card/credit card slots are full, and it has a wad of cash in it.

The aim Radix Products evidently had when designing the Radix One was to give us all the option of switching out those stylish, but bulky trifold and bifold wallets we’ve all used in the past. There’s really no need to carry one of those anymore, if you’ve got less than 10 cards, and with the Radix One you have space for easy-access to anything between 4 and 10 pieces of plastic.

It’s more than just a streamlined wallet though with polycarbonate and silicone components, as there’s space to secure cash on the outside and use it like a handy money clip. Regardless of whether you’re looking to slip it into your jacket pocket, a shirt pocket or even the tightest pocket in your tightest pair of skinny jeans (whether you prefer distressed or ripped, we know you’ve got some), this wallet will always slide in with ease and sit comfortably.

Although we’d understand if you were skeptical, even just a little when you started reading this guide. Skeptical about whether a minimalist wallet could perform as well as a standard sized bifold or trifold wallet. That it would be able to provide you with the storage space for all those cards, money and everything else you need to carry around with you, while offering the comfort for your poor thighs and buttocks that you crave. The comfort of having something that can be slipped into your pocket that’s so slim and lightweight that you forget it’s even there. That is until the bill comes.

We hope though, that having read through our extensive and comprehensive, no stones left unturned, guide to the best minimalist wallets out there, that you’ve come around to it. That you understand why these accessories are so common and popular nowadays. There is hope for those jeans you don’t wanna rip. There is hope that you can prevent yourself from looking like a fool when it comes to buying drinks on the bar on a Friday night or covering the bill when you’ve taken that high-profile client to lunch. You can be the slick guy you wanna, with one of the great minimalist wallets we’ve highlighted above.

The amazing thing about ultra thin wallets is that much like anything these days, there’s a wide range of options available. You can go for a high-end branded card holder, one that comes with a plethora of stunning extras, or you can instead opt for the workhorse that’s built to last. The minimalist wallet market is flooded with as diverse a range of options as you lot out there buying them. Want a nice piece of Italian cowhide leather in your back pocket? You get it pal! Or perhaps you’d prefer a nice masculine metallic chassis, there’s many out there like that.

Even if you’d rather just have a nice soft piece of canvas or felt, we’ve shown that there’s minimalist wallets out there for all of you. What we might single out as our favorite, might well be different to yours. After all, we’ve added the Decadent Minimalist one to our wish list, but that’s how we roll. Any of the choices above in our short…okay not shortlist, would make walking around with the cards you need easier, more comfortable and safer!
