Leather wallets are a classic for a reason. Built to last, elegant and always in style, they match any look — from business to casual to everything in between.

Sure, you can grab a synthetic wallet that will work just fine, but there’s something about the look and feel of genuine leather that simply exudes a style. Another reason why fashion-conscious men tend to pick leather wallets instead of plastic or acrylic is that, when well taken care of, leather tends to age gracefully, meaning these wallets can last for years (if not decades). 

Because it’s such a men’s wardrobe staple, leather wallets can be found in the thousands online, so how should you go about picking the right one for you?

First, decide on the type of the best men’s wallet you want.

Are you looking for a more traditional bifold or do you want more space with a trifold? Sure, trifold wallets might give you more room for organization, but they can get bulkier too. Do you prefer wallets with zippers or without? What’s your favorite leather tonality, and what colors do you prefer? Maybe you want an iPhone wallet instead?

Once you figure all of that out, check out our top picks for the best men’s leather wallets and see which options tickle your fancy.


1. Bellroy Hide & Seek Wallet


Bellroy’s wallets pack extra features and details into their wallets, without adding any bulk. This slim wallet has five card slots, but it can hold up to 12 cards.

2. Harber London Leather Bifold Wallet with RFID Protection


This RFID blocking wallet from Harber London is tried and true from our e-commerce & special projects editor, Tyler Schoeber.

“I tried scanning my key card to get into the office the other day by just running my wallet over the scanning device. Normally that works, but this time, it didn’t because of this exact RFID-blocking wallet from Harber London,” he says. “At first I was kind of annoyed, but knowing that no one can access any of my information by walking past me makes me feel so much safer. Plus, the wallet itself is gorgeous.”
