mont blanc

Mont Blanc

Mont Blanc which is synonymously known throughout the globe as traditionally a connoisseur of writing instruments since 1906, but has been adapting its quality and traditional craftsmanship into its small leather goods since 1926. The company acquired its name from Mount Blanc, the highest [and most majestic] peak in the Alps. More traditional in their styles and options, the Meisterstuck Selection Sfumato Wallet with its durable calfskin exterior and supple lambskin interior is hard to pass up.

bally

Bally

Functionality and Modernity is the name of the game at Bally. Carl Bally was the brands founder, with a vision to create exquisite footwear with the finest leather, using the most innovative craftsmanship. This is why one of the worlds oldest luxury brands is a key player when it comes to us choosing one of the best wallet brands. The pick of the litter [in my humble opinion] is a dark navy guy whose name is Ledok who is a silk lined calfskin wallet with a clear internal ID window which covers all your wallet wants.

louis vitton1

Louis Vuitton

Who would have though that wanting to become a trunk-master would have set Louis Vuitton on a path to creating what we now know as the most recognisable and profitable designer brand on earth. The monogram [hate it or love it] is THE signature of the brand and the their uncompromising style, materials and workmanship are a testament to their design aesthetic. This seasons winner is the Multiple wallet in a vibrant Iceberg blue. The almost scuff proof Taiga leather is ideal for holding cards, bills and receipts with architectural slots built in for the lot.

hermes

Hermes

Im going to assume, because of pop culture, the first thought when you here the brand name Hermes is Birkin bag or “I cant afford to go in there”. Both are true. But the reason for the hype is the brands history and the quality of the leather you are more than happy to hand your Amex over for. What started out as a small but high quality horse harness and bridle business for Thierry Hermes is known as having the most sought after leather products with the highest possible quality. Go and have a look [and a feel] at their compact Manhattan wallet or the Citizen Twill cardholder to see what all the hype is about.

tom ford

Tom Ford

When Jay-Z writes a song not only mentioning you, but using your name as the title, you know you’re one cool motherf*^ker. Mr. Tom Ford has been influencing pop culture with his understated swag since bringing the “sexy back” to fashion in the 90’s at the helm of YSL and Gucci and since 2008 has been bringing his reputation of the highest quality products with the seasons [and every seasons] must have designs. My pick of the exceptional products in the catalogue is the money clip bi-fold highlighted in both goatskin and extravagant alligator, in black, flanked by the signature gold highlights. #idontpopmollyirocktomford

dior

Dior Homme

When it comes to sophisticated cool, there is no other men’s brand quite like Dior Homme. Known for defining a new look for men from 2001 with their signature skinny black suit and even getting Karl Lagerfeld to famously lose more than a few kilos to adapt to the brands aesthetic. Their DNA can be traced from the inspiring RTW collections, right down to the shoes, sunglasses and of course the leather goods. Understated subtleties are the brands signature, and this season you can see that on the burgundy and red calfskin wallet with the signature of Monsieur Dior embossed on the interior.

gucci

Gucci

1921 was the year we were introduced to the small Italian leather goods store, opened by Guccio Gucci. This company was founded on its craftsmanship of leather goods of all sizes and through its evolution has grown into of the largest and most well known fashion houses to date; encompassing a long history of RTW, leather and accessories. The discerning gent cannot go passed the signature bi-fold in a creamy slate blue. This colour is only enhanced by the elegance that only crocodile skin can produce.  This puts the “LUXE” in LUXURY.

chistianloudoutin

Christian Louboutin

I know you’re thinking that the man only makes shoes. Exquisite red soled shoes. But he puts spikes on more than just your feet. This French born, apprentice of Roger Vivier, uses the same ethos of empowerment and uniqueness that he manifests for his footwear, as he does for his leather-goods. Since 1991 he has been serving us the famous signature red. An example of this is the Kaspero wallet in a smooth calfskin, which features an outside slot for easy access cards. Open up to reveal 2 inner pockets for bills and plenty of card space amongst the Loubi red. These items are only for the fashion mavericks who NEED to make a statement.
