Cons

  • Bulky for a front pocket wallet

Serman Brands Transformer

This front-pocket wallet has more storage than most, but it can also be a bit bulky as a result. It’s a solid wallet, but the smooth leather design will show scratches quickly. Read More

Pros

  • Slim front-pocket design
  • Money clip
  • RFID blocking

Cons

  • Scratches easily
  • Bulky when full

Wallet. Phone. Keys. It’s the mantra every guy says before they walk out the door, but we don’t put nearly enough thought into the wallet we use to carry all of our most important stuff. I spent years with a bulky, classic bifold design that—in retrospect—I actually hated. It was too tempting to stuff receipts and other junk in there I didn’t need, which was actually causing me back pain.

Every guy has different needs from their wallet, whether it’s a bulky carry-everything bifold or a slim, minimalist front-pocket wallet. We’ve got recommendations for every type of wallet, based on our extensive research, personal experience, and combing through literally thousands of reviews of the best-selling men’s wallets online.

Editor's Note

The recommendations in this guide are based on thorough product and market research by our team of expert product reviewers. The picks are based on examining user reviews, product specifications, and, in some limited cases, our experience with the specific products named.

The Velez Bifold Leather Wallet has a lot going for it, but more than anything it’s just beautiful. Its low-knap leather looks almost like suede, with a design that is both classic yet flashy. It’s extremely functional as well, with all the classic hallmarks of a bifold design, including a transparent ID slot, a full-length bifold for bills, and multiple card pockets on each side.

Pros

  • Classic bifold design holds cash well

  • Plenty of room

  • Real leather

Cons

  • Too bulky for front pocket

  • No RFID blocking

Herschel Charlie Wallet

Most of the wallets on our list are some kind of leather, but if you’re opting for a synthetic material this Herschel Supply Co. option is slim, minimalist, and made from polyester. It’s a fun little wallet that’s perfect for holding just the few cards you may need on you at one time. Its main drawback is that it’s very stiff, so carrying more than two or three cards at once makes it difficult to get any of them out. If you can live with that, this bright, colorful wallet is an excellent alternative.

Pros

  • Slim front-pocket wallet

  • Colorful non-leather design

  • RFID blocking

Cons

  • Stiffer than leather alternatives

  • Hard to get cards out

Buffway Slim Minimalist Front Pocket Leather Wallet

The Buffway slim wallet is an affordable minimalist wallet that lets you keep things simple and safe, putting your critical IDs, cards, and cash in your front pocket. It won’t hold a lot—and stuffing extra cards in will likely cause them to get stuck—but it’s got plenty of room for the essentials. Like other minimalist wallets, you may need to really rethink what you carry each day if you’re used to a traditional billfold, but the eye-catching, colorful design is worth the hassle.

Pros

  • Slim front-pocket design

  • Lots of card storage

  • RFID blocking

Cons

  • Little room for cash

Another traditional bifold, this Fossil is billed as a “front-pocket” wallet, though we aren’t quite buying it. Reviewers commented that it was slim when empty but bulkier when filled with enough stuff to take advantage of its extensive collection of pockets. It’s a great wallet either way, but better as a traditional bifold alternative than a bigger, bulkier front-pocket replacement.

Pros

  • Slim bifold design

  • Sturdy leather make

  • Plenty of storage

Cons

  • Bulky for a front pocket wallet

The Sermon Brands money clip is another front-pocket wallet, though the integrated money clip does add considerable bulk. It should fit comfortably in your pockets and can hold plenty of cards and cash, but it’s not quite as slim as some of the proper minimalist options out there.

Pros

  • Slim front-pocket design

  • Money clip

  • RFID blocking

Cons

  • Scratches easily

  • Bulky when full

Timberland Passcase Wallet

If you just want the traditional, no-nonsense leather bifold wallet, this Timberland is the way to go. It’s well-built, sturdy, and completely un-flashy. Whether you go “Full Costanza” or just like to have a collection of all your cards, IDs, bills, and receipts in one place, this is the wallet for the classic guy who wants a classic way to hold all their stuff.

The Fossil Slim Front-Pocket wallet is another slim option that will fit in your front pocket, hold your most essential items, and not much else. It has an integrated magnetic money clip which is nice if you need to just hold a few emergency bills, but it isn’t strong enough to replace a full money clip if you keep a lot of cash on you.

Pros

  • Slim front-pocket design

  • Magnetic money clip

  • RFID blocking

Cons

  • Only fits a few cards at once
