Leather Wallets for Men that can Take a Beating

The men’s leather wallet. An underrated accessory? We would say so. Every man has one. They are the lifeblood of our day. They keep us going. They store important stuff. And losing it is always a big problem.

For generations, men have carried wallets for their ID’s, cash, and cards. It’s a thing you need. And for some perhaps it is a chore to carry around. So why not get something special? If you’re going to be using it every day, why not settle on something you really love?

Leather Wallets for the Long Haul

If you absolutely need to carry one, why not get a leather wallet that is made to last? Something that will be with you on this crazy adventure we call life. Most wallets for men are built for a season. You hope they will last a few years. We believe in something better.

At The Real Leather Company, we use premium full grain and top grain leather to make our wallets for men. That means we only use the very finest layer of the hide. That’s the most hardwearing. It’s guaranteed to last longer than other PU or faux leather wallets you might have had before.

We believe that using the best materials makes the best products. The target is to have a wallet for life. We believe we’ve cracked that.

Our Favorite Leather Wallets

We stock a range of styles of leather wallets for men. Check out our:

1. Money Clips

The smallest is the leather money clip wallet. These are designed to hold only a few cards, then have stainless steel attachments to hold bills. They are a real men's minimalist slim leather wallet style. Say goodbye to bulky, overstuffed wallets. These slim wallets for men are simple, lightweight and so easy to carry in a front pocket.

2. Bifolds

Our classic leather bifold wallets are built to be an upgrade to this classic wallet. There's plenty of room for 6–8 cards in these mens wallets, along with sections for bills and interior storage for those special items we all like to keep with us. If you've got a real classic style and love a men's bifold leather wallet, check these out.

3. Trifolds

A leather trifold wallet is a classic and popular style of wallet. As the name suggests, it consists of three sections or folds that can be folded inward to create a compact and slim profile. Most trifolds will have a bill compartment, card holder, ID window and a coin pocket. Usually, you’ll be able to get a little more in a trifold than a bifold.

4. Long Wallets

We also carry larger styles, that we refer to as our long leather wallets. These are built to hold even more cards, bills and loose change. Many of these will hold 12 cards or more in the card slots and be RFID protecting. For the man that likes to carry a little of everything and never be caught without cards and cash, these are a great option.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Do leather wallets last longer?

It really does depend on the type of leather used. If you’re talking fake leather - like PU leather or faux leather, then no. These are not designed to go the distance.

But, if like us, you build a wallet from premium top grain or full grain leather - those wallets are really made to last. Superior materials make a wallet last longer. Yes, better materials do mean the cost will go up. There’s really no way to avoid that. But if it means it will last longer it’s usually worth it.

2. How do I look after a leather wallet?

Contrary to popular belief, you do need to care for leather if you want it to really go the distance. We recommend using a good leather cleaner to wipe away stains, marks and contaminants.

Then use a leather cream to treat the leather once or twice per year. This helps to develop the patina and get that classic look most of our customers are looking for.

3. Can mens leather wallets get wet?

Yes, leather wallets can get wet. But please note that leather is not fully waterproof. Excessive water can cause leather to fail. That’s why we recommend treating our wallets for men with leather cream to develop water resistance.

If your wallet does get excessively wet, we recommend leaving it to air dry in a cool, dry climate.

4. How do I choose the best leather wallet?

We recommend starting by laying out everything you need to carry in a wallet. For some, that is just a couple of credit cards and your ID. For others that might be more cards, cash and a some small photos.

Once you know the volume you need, look for a wallet that matches that criteria.

We recommend only choosing from top grain or full grain leather wallets for men - those will last the longest, are high quality leather and are worth the investment. If a listing does not state full grain or top it’s likely a lower grade of leather such as genuine leather or PU leather. Stay away from those if you want something that will last.
