Hey duders, I'm currently in the market for a quality leather wallet, I've been rocking the same Victorinox wallet for the past four years, it's holding up okay, but it's time for a big boy wallet. So I'm asking you guys for some suggestions, any and all are appreciated.

I would just find a local quality leather shop and get something unique and suited to your tastes. The people running those shops generally know how to pick that kind of stuff out, plus you'll end up with a wallet that isn't mass produced.

I would try JCPenney if you are looking for mass-produced, or at least easy to find. I have a William Rast wallet that I got for like $30 from there; a clothing company owned by Justin Timberlake.

These guys make great, very cool, very functional and fashionable wallets, a bit on the expensive side(for me at least) but it didn't stop me from picking up the "hide and seek" wallet late last year. Accidentally laundered it a while ago, and it's none the worse for wear, which is surprising for leather.

A solid rubber band will do

I bought a random, brandless leather wallet from a market stall about 4 years ago, and it's still holding up fine. It's starting to look a little bit well used and will probably need a replacement in a years time or so. I think it was about £12. When I bought it I was doubtful of its quality, but having used it for years I'm happy. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on an expensive brand following on from my experience with a cheap one. Nothing lasts forever. At best they'd last twice as long as my cheapo one, and cost more than twice as much.

Just bought one of these like a month ago. Had the same big bulky wallet for about 8 years. Bought the slim sleeve and love it. It's super tiny so I threw away like half the garbage that was in my old wallet that I don't even know why I carried around.

During a particularly slow day at work, one of my ex-colleagues made a wallet out of duct tape and proceeded to use it for months afterward. One of the most amazing things I've ever seen.

I really love the ALL-ETT Sports Wallet

I used the nylon version until it wore out and recently upgraded to the leather version. Very compact, functional, and affordable.

Much like @ltsmash I was rocking a All-Ett for a while. Loved it expect it was very thin and I forgot it in a taxi once. After that I decided to go back to something a little thicker. I am very anti 'costanza wallet' and want something thin. I cant recomend Tanner Goods highly enough tho. I bought their workday wallet and its awesome. Not leather but oilcloth and very thin. I have considered getting one of their all leather wallets now that I have some of their products. Their leather is the softest, nicest, leather I have ever touched. The utility bilfold is maybe next on my list. Also considering it in natural and letting it age naturally and take on a rich color all its own. Seeing pics like this make me want the natural leather to let it age...

don't get a tri-fold. its annoying as shit.

They're not leather, but they're well-made, affordable, last a long time & have a lifetime warranty. I've had mine for several years & it's only starting to get a bit worn at the corners now. I seem to get asked about it and complimented every time I pull it out of my pocket.

Also, you get to tell everybody that your wallet is made out of the same duct tape that NASA uses.
