The 10 Best Slim Wallets That'll Last the Long Haul
Earlier this year, in a mad dash to the corner store, my wallet, the one I'd carried with me for over a decade, went kaput. It was already on its last legs, and when I took it out of my pocket, it fell apart. It was a slim wallet in forest green that I probably should have replaced earlier, but I’m prone to beating up my accessories.
When I went home, I reached for another wallet that I received as a gift a few months prior. It was black padded wallet with a slew of compartments from Chanel. At the time, I wasn’t really leaving my house, so the large frame and girth worked. It stored all my essentials neatly, and I had no problems with it. All that changed when I had to leave my house regularly. I had places to go and people to see, and though my new wallet was effective in carrying a bunch of stuff, it was just too large to fit into my pockets.
Thankfully, after connecting a friend with someone that landed him his dream gig a week earlier, I received a thank you present: a slim bifold wallet made of yellow and brown Elaphe snakeskin from Byredo. The size fit nicely into both my front and back pockets, and the four card slots carried everything I needed. I also loved the texture and bold color; it fit my personality like a dream. What’s more, it’s deceptively durable, which is pretty much my top requirement.
Undoubtedly, this is the best slim wallet for me. But this doesn’t mean that it is the best for you. You could be a minimalist who favors a sharp flip card wallet, a devout fashion follower that likes a vibrant cardholder, or a budget-conscious fella that prefers a card sleeve wallet. There are plenty of options out there; all you have to do is find the perfect one that speaks to your personality and can fit into your pockets without any fuss. And to help, we rounded up 10 stellar slim options, all of them different but all of them primed to last you over a decade.
