Styles of wallets
Wallets come in a variety of styles. Choosing the style that is right for you depends on your lifestyle and the purpose of your wallet. If you dress professionally, your wallet will be different from someone who is more casual in appearance.
If you dress in a suit and tie everyday, your choice of wallet should be a leather one. Leather wallets are typically black, brown, or mahogany in colour. When you choose a wallet, pick a colour that matches your shoes and belts.
If a dressy wallet is more your style, you may want to consider a luxury wallet made from a superior grade of leather, or animal skin such as reptile or ostrich. While they are more expensive, they add style and flair to your wardrobe and will last a life time with proper care.
If your lifestyle is casual and relaxed, your wallet choice could be a trendy wallet made of lightweight nylon, canvas, vinyl, or rubber. These wallets are found in different colour options and even have logos and designs on the front. Outdoorsmen can even purchase waterproof wallets.
When purchasing a new wallet, remembering these few helpful hints will ensure that you buy the right wallet. Some men may prefer options such as wallets with zippers that hold change, or wallets that attach to a belt chain for added security. As you select your wallet, consider how what you want in it and much you carry, because an overstuffed wallet never looks good.
No matter the image you portray, classic, trendy, or fashion forward, there is a wallet designed to reflect your personal style.
