How to Choose the Right Wallet for You: Tips for Buying the Perfect Wallet
If your wallet looks like a Seinfeld punchline, then it's time to upgrade. Not only does it quite literally hold your identity, but a wallet speaks to your character. Make sure you're sending out the right message with the right wallet.
Why Should You Buy a Leather Wallet?
Let's talk materials for the perfect wallet. Cotton and synthetic fabrics are okay options, but they'll wear out faster and start to show their age rather quickly. Leather is the best option.
However, there are many types of leather, and it can be hard to choose and overwhelming. Think of it in terms of building a house, would you build a house out of plywood or oak? The same concept carries over to wallets, don’t fall ones that claim to be “genuine” leather...They're genuinely flimsy. Not all wallets are created equal and we craft our wallets out of the best leather on the market, American full-grain leather. It is from the thickest, most sturdy part of the hide. Full-grain leather is an ultra-durable material that can actually handle the everyday carry. Part of the beauty of leather is its the aptitude for taking on character over time, and nothing shows a beautiful patina like natural leather over the years.

How to Select the Right Wallet for You
Choosing the right wallet goes beyond what happens to strike your fancy at that moment. We recommend factoring in your daily wardrobe. If you wear jeans most days, then go for a light leather and let it soak up some denim coloring and wear in the pursuit of a well-earned patina. If you wear suits, try a traditional dark finish for a more sophisticated style. Both black and brown are classic, luxurious colors that are versatile in many environments. Contrast stitching and signature accents brighten up the mundane and allow you to stand out in a crowd.
We'd also suggest purchasing a wallet with minimal patterns or branded logos. The artisans who craft it will take pride in it, but without ostentatious labeling. Your wallet is an extension of yourself, not an advertisement.
Lastly, before you make the switch to a new one, pare down what you carry in your wallet. It's unnecessary and unwise to carry around important documents like medical cards or social security cards. Keep any pesky memberships or tickets in your iPhone's Passbook.
Overall, putting thought into selecting the proper wallet is well worth it. The best wallet is one that meets all your needs, has excellent craftsmanship, and is backed a fantastic warranty. Our wallets fit that bill (pun intended) quite nicely. We back all of them with a 30-day money back promise and a 25-year warranty. Check out our artisan-made, versatile, wallets today!
