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

                      8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

                      8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

                      We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

                      On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

                      Advertising

                      Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

                      1. Smart Door Locks

                      A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

                      2. Smart Kitchen Tools

                      Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

                      3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

                      If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

                      4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

                      These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

                      5. Nest Thermostat

                      This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

                      6. Smart Lighting

                      Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

                      7. Google Chromecast Ultra

                      Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

                      8. Canary

                      This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
