10 Best Men’s Wallets That Are Slim, Stylish, and Practical

10 Best Men’s Wallets That Are Slim, Stylish, and Practical

Think about these two situations: in the first one, a man takes out his wallet. It’s old, frayed, held together with a rubber brand, and bursting with receipts. In the second one, the same man takes out a wallet but it’s sleek, black, slim, and looks both stylish and expensive.

Even though it’s the same man in both cases, wouldn’t you make assumptions about the background, career, and priorities of the man based on the two different wallets? This might be even more true in a romantic context.

A men’s wallet needs to be functional (transport everything the man would need to be in a wallet) and have some degree to style to convey how the man in question wants to be perceived. Yet, it doesn’t need to be very expensive to fit these criteria.

If you’re looking for men’s wallets at the intersection of slim, stylish, and practical, here are 10 options.

1. Bellroy Slim Sleeve

    This wallet is made from environmentally-certified top grain leather and comes with a three-year warranty, which is great if you care about both the environment and your own financial stability. There are two “quick access” slots for cards you need every day (credit card / public transportation / etc.) with the rest of the available cards operating on a pull-tab system. The wallet can hold 4 to 14 cards with folded bills, and overall the design is super slim.

    Best for: Minimalists who generally don’t carry a lot but still want quick access to core cards and a stylish design

    2. Front Pocket Wallet by Rogue Industries

      These 100% leather wallets feature a full-size banknote divider, three credit card slots, and an ID pocket. The wallet can overall hold up to six credit cards. It’s also a front pocket wallet, which can help with sciatic nerve pain (often sitting on your wallet in meetings or on planes causes issues for men)—and front pocket wallets are much harder to steal when you visit crowded urban areas.

      Best for: The man constantly on the go who still wants a sense of style

The product development cycle on this wallet was lengthy in order to make sure all features being asked for were included.

        Best for: Anyone looking for an affordable, classic, and functional option

                8. Tan Leather Bifold Wallet by Grovemade

                  While it’s a bit smaller—30% smaller than a traditional wallet, in part because it’s made from a single piece of Japanese leather—the design still allows for easy access to core elements of the wallet. It doesn’t include a coin pouch, but can contain 4 to 8 cards, folded bills, and several American-sized business cards.

                  Best for: The true minimalist in terms of size need and card hold need

                      How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

                      How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

                      As it appears, the human mind is not capable of not thinking, at least on the subconscious level. Our mind is always occupied by thoughts, whether we want to or not, and they influence our every action.

                      When we were still children, our thoughts seemed to be purely positive. Have you ever been around a 4-year old who doesn’t like a painting he or she drew? I haven’t. Instead, I see glee, exciting and pride in children’s eyes. But as the years go by, we clutter our mind with doubts, fears and self-deprecating thoughts.

                      Just imagine then, how much we limit ourselves in every aspect of our lives if we give negative thoughts too much power!

                      We’ll never go after that job we’ve always wanted because our nay-saying thoughts make us doubt our abilities.

                      We’ll never ask that person we like out on a date because we always think we’re not good enough.

                      Advertising

                      We’ll never risk quitting our job in order to pursue the life and the work of our dreams because we can’t get over our mental barrier that insists we’re too weak, too unimportant and too dumb.

                      We’ll never lose those pounds that risk our health because we believe we’re not capable of pushing our limits.

                      And we’ll never be able to fully see our inner potential because we simply don’t dare to question the voices in our head…

                      But enough is enough! It’s time to stop these limiting beliefs and come to a place of sanity, love and excitement about life, work and ourselves.

                      So, how can we tap into the power of positivity?

                      “Happiness cannot come from without, it comes from within.” – Helen Keller

                      It’s not as hard as it may seem; you just have to practice, practice, practice. Here are 4 simple yet powerful ideas on how you can get started.

                      1. Learn to substitute every negative thought with a positive one.

                      Every time a negative thought crawls into your mind, replace it with a positive thought. It’s just like someone writes a phrase you don’t like on a blackboard and then you get up, erase it and write something much more to your liking.

                      Just take a look at these 10 Positive Affirmations for Success that will Change your Life.

                      2. See the positive side of every situation, even when you are surrounded by pure negativity.

                      This one is a bit harder to put into practice, which does not mean it’s impossible.

                      You can find positivity in everything by mentally holding on to something positive, whether this be family, friends, your faith, nature, someone’s sparkling eyes or whatever other glimmer of beauty.

                      If you seek it, you will find it.

                      3. At least once a day, take a moment and think of 5 things you are grateful for.

                      This will lighten your mood and give you some perspective of what really is important in life and how many blessings surround you already.

                      Here’re 60 Things To Be Thankful For In Life that can inspire you.

                      4. Change the mental images you allow to enter your mind.

                      How you see yourself and your surroundings make a huge difference to your thinking.

                      Advertising

                      Instead of dwelling on dark, negative thoughts, consciously build and focus on positive, light and colorful images, thoughts and situations in your mind a few times a day.

                      Learn from this article how to change your mental images: How to Think Positive and Eliminate Negative Thoughts

                      If you are persistent and keep on working on yourself, your mind will automatically reject its negative thoughts and welcome the positive ones.

                      And remember:

                      You are (or will become) what you think you are.

                      This is reasonable enough to be proactive about whatever is going on in your head.
