Best wallet brands for men bellroy

1. Bellroy

Pricing: from AU$139

Sitting at the pointy end of our list is one of our favourite gear brands, full stop. Bellroy has a great selection of men’s wallets, ranging from slim sleeves to travel folios. Their selection is value-for-money, using high-quality leathers that stand the test of time but also offer the soft, supple quality that you expect.

Our pick is the Bellroy Hide & Seek (AU$139): More than its name suggests, the wallet is made from premium, environmentally certified leather and backed by a 3-year warranty. In terms of practicality, we love the separate sections for business cards, notes, and cards, that include RFID protection. This quality wallet comes in seven classic colours including black, blue, two shades of green, and three shades of brown. If you’re looking for a simple everyday wallet, this is our pick.

A great alternative is the Bellroy Folio (AU$269): If you’re leaning into the practicality side of the equation, this folio wallet for men is also a great alternative thanks to its unique ability to hold more than 14 cards, plenty of cash in two separate sections, and even your smartphone thanks to its width. Of course, the typical Bellroy quality is there, too, with premium, environmentally certified tanned leather.

2. Montblanc

Pricing: from AU$400

Montblanc is synonymous across the globe as a traditional connoisseur of writing instruments, and since 1926 it has been adapting its quality and traditional craftsmanship into its small leather goods. The company actually acquired its name from Mont Blanc – the highest peak in the Alps – and thanks to a focus on quality cowhide used throughout its collection it sits well appointed on our list of best wallet brands for men.

Our top pick is the Meisterstück Wallet 4cc (AU$600): This is a favourite of ours for its black full-grain cowhide construction with classic Montblanc deep shine. We rank this as a great value-for-money luxury option thanks to the exterior leather finish that is luxurious, durable, and ages like a fine wine. The interior is lined with jacquard style and includes the Montblanc brand name, Montblanc emblem with palladium finish ring, and 4 pockets for credit cards and banknotes.

A great alternative is the Montblanc Meisterstück Compact Travel Wallet (AU$950): It’s made from the finest calf-skin leather and is a good choice when practicality is what you’re looking for with room for loose change in the internal zipped coin case, seven card slots, and a large pocket for storing your passport, receipts, and other loose items, including your phone should you be heading out for dinner.

Best wallet brands for men louis vuitton

3. Louis Vuitton

Pricing: from AU$435

Who would have thought that wanting to become a trunk master would have set Louis Vuitton on a path to creating the most recognisable and profitable designer brand on earth? Louis Vuitton wallets sit right alongside Rolex watches, R.M. Williams boots, and Common Projects sneakers regarding stylish essentials for men.

Our top pick is the Louis Vuitton Slender Wallet (AU$730): It’s been my personal trusty wallet for the last 5-years and it’s aged like a fine wine, offering uncompromising style and quality for the years I’ve been using it. The choice of long-lasting materials and workmanship is a testament to the brand’s design aesthetic. This is a staple no matter the season and features slots for up to eight credit cards and a bill compartment. It’s not the best value for money as wallets that cost more than half this amount offer more features, but it’s LV and is quite reasonably priced on the spectrum of designer wallets.

A great alternative is the Louis Vuitton Zippy Organizer (AU$1,750): This is a great for those who are looking to add some extra storage space to their luxury wallet selection. Another classic from the Parisian fashion house, this wallet is finished in premium Taiga leather and offers space for multiple credit cards, a zipped coin compartment and even a large pocket for plane tickets.

4. Harber London

Pricing: from AU$128

Harber London has been a staple on our lists whenever we’re talking about small leather goods. The family-run business based in London manufactures each of its pieces in Spain with a team of skilled craftsmen to bring a wide selection of wallets for men. The range focuses on bi-fold wallets with built-in RFID protection, and we’ve outlined two of our favourites below.

Our top pick is the Harber London Leather Card Wallet with RFID protection (AU$128): It’s the perfect choice for the man exuding quality and style. The addition of RFID blocking is a great feature that assists in protecting your credit cards against skimming. Crafted in Spain from full-grain vegetable-tanned cowhide leather, you might be surprised that this slim design can hold up to 16 cards. This is one of the best wallet brands for men and conveniently comes in seven timeless colours.

A great alternative is the Harber London travel wallet (AU$128): Perfect for travelling, it comes with the same RFID protection as the card wallet and offers a few travel extras such as dual currency compartments for different currency notes, tickets or expenses, and up to 12 cards.

Best wallet brands for men bottega veneta
Bottega Veneta Bi-Fold Wallet | Image: Bottega Veneta

5. Bottega Veneta

Pricing: from AU$540

A purveyor of exceptional luxury leather goods since 1966, Bottega is best known for its expertise in working with leather. One of the best wallet brands for men, they invented the leather weaving technique known as intrecciato, and in doing so, ushering in the start of a new era of understated fashion with their famous motto “when your own initials are enough”.

Our top pick is the Intrecciato Slim Bi-Fold Wallet Bi-Fold Wallet ($790 AUD): More than a great alternative to the Louis Vuitton monogrammed wallet, it features the aforementioned Intrecciato leather in its construction and is made from calfskin with a calfskin lining which makes it a higher quality item. We love the choice of colours available with everything from classic black to dark green, slate, and mud. This is a great choice if you’re looking for a stylish minimalist designer wallet for men, but you’ll want to get in quick. These wallets sell out quickly in limited colours!

Best wallet brands for men hentley
Hentley Bagan Slim BiFold Wallet | Image: Hentley

6. Hentley

We like to think of Hentley as the Australian alternative to Harber London. Both brands take advantage of the finest leathers to create some of the best wallets for men that are also affordable. In the case of Hentley, their wallets are handmade from the finest Italian leather that will be with you for years to come and only get better with age.

Our pick is the Hentley Slim Bagan Bi-Fold ($155). This wallet offers more than enough storage for your cards (holding up to 15) whilst maintaining a stylish finish in 100 per cent Vegetable Tanned Italian Leather. It’s slim enough to make it another great option for travel with flexibility for a weekend getaway. Best of all, you can add some extra style points with personal monogramming that’s available with every purchase. If we had to choose any wallet on this list as a gift, then Hentley would be it.

Best wallet brands for men gucci
GG Marmont leather bi-fold wallet | Image: GUCCI

7. Gucci

Pricing: from AU$550 AUD

1921 was the year we were introduced to the small Italian leather goods store, opened by Guccio Gucci. A company founded on its craftsmanship of leather goods of all sizes and, through its evolution, has grown into one of the largest and most well-known fashion houses to date, encompassing a long history of ready-to-wear.

Our top pick is the signature GG Marmont leather bi-fold wallet (AU$800): It’s a great alternative to the designer wallets mentioned throughout this article – Louis Vuitton, Bottega, Goyard – and features maybe the most understated look of them all. If the black logos are a little too understated, we recommend going with the silver or even gold double G that are available as variations. Made in Italy, and featuring eight card slots and two bill compartments, it’s hard to fault the practicality of the wallet either.

8. Goyard

Pricing: from AU$600

Goyard is one of the oldest leather goods luxury houses on the planet, with over 150 years of experience. It specializes in everything from trunks and hat boxes to men’s and women’s wallets and even Chic du Chien (Pet accessories). Its impressive list of clients includes Picasso, the Grimaldi royal family, Edith Piaf, and even Karl Lagerfeld. It’s popular for its customisation and quality, and there are literally thousands of different combinations and personalization options to choose from but we guarantee that no matter which one you choose, you’ll not only have an entirely unique beautiful handmade wallet but also one of the best men’s wallet brands around right there in your pocket.

Our pick of the bunch is the Saint Florentin Wallet (from AU$600): Over the last few years, the brand went from an illusive designer label to an easier-to-come-by label (still expensive) and this is the most functional designer wallet on our list of the best thanks to its extremely flat Goyard-engraved clasp that keeps things safe while being slim enough to fit in your pocket comfortably. Available in several different colours that will be the hardest decision to make! Quality is outstanding with Goyardine Canvas & Vauzelles Calfskin.

Tom ford

9. Tom Ford

Pricing: from AU$390

When Jay-Z writes a song not only mentioning you but using your name as the title, you know you’re one cool dude. Tom Ford has been influencing pop culture with his understated swag since bringing the “sexy back” to fashion in the 1990s at the helm of YSL and Gucci. Since 2008, he has been bringing his reputation of the highest quality products with the seasons’ (and every season’s) must-have designs.

Our pick is the Tom Ford Grain Leather Classic Bifold Wallet (AU$590): It’s a surprisingly affordable luxury wallet for men that features eight credit card slots alongside a central notes pocket for cash and receipts. The exterior is made from 100 per cent leather in Italy and is only flanked by the signature gold highlights on the Tom Ford logo.

Dior bi fold wallet

10. Dior

Pricing: from AU$940

Regarding the best wallet brands for men, there are very few like Dior. The brand is known for defining a new look for men’s fashion in 2001 with its signature skinny black suit and even getting Karl Lagerfeld to lose more than a few kilos to adapt to its aesthetic. Their DNA can be traced from the inspiring RTW collections, right down to the shoes, sunglasses, and, of course, leather goods. Understated subtleties are the brand’s signature, and this season’s wallet collection is filled with options.

Our top pick is the Dior Bifold Wallet (AU$940): This is another great designer option that offers practicality by way of eight card slots, a double bill compartment, and two slip pockets. You’ll find the overall quality top-notch with smooth calfskin interior made all the more desirable with the ruthenium-finish brass Dior signature on the front and embossed Dior signature on the interior.
