Wallets are usually designed to hold banknotes and credit cards. With the introduction of the first credit cards, the modern bi-fold wallet with multiple “card slots” became standardized. Since then, pocket-sized wallets haven’t really changed much style wise. So why not try something new?
Even thou we’re starting to use our phone to pay for products, I’m still not comfortable with credit card companies, allegedly, tracking all of my purchases and then sharing it with health care companies. I think cash is still king, and you shouldn’t be afraid to carry a hefty wallet. The mainstream media has scared us into only using credit cards, because we will be robbed if we dare to carry cash. This idea is so juvenile and quite hilarious.
Not all wallets are made equal. Men’s wallets shouldn’t be shabby, weak, rough, or heavy. When I purchase a wallet, it needs to be well crafted. I’ve had numerous wallets in my past, and I can sincerely tell you that cheap stuff doesn’t last long. When you purchase quality items, they will last you longer. When you buy cheap crap you will have to continuously have to replace it every few months or so. If you appreciate and value well made products, then acquiring an exquisite walled is more than ideal.
Wallet designs can be very dull. The same black leather wallets you constantly see everybody using don’t reflect style. Today we present you with twenty-five exquisite wallet designs. Our goal is to inspire wallet manufacturers and showcase prominent inspiration for industrial designers in this field. Most of the wallets below can be purchased by clicking the image, however some are actually concepts on Kickstarter waiting to be backed. Enjoy!
