Style Tip: The Minimal Wallet

Mugsy Jeans Slim Fit Jeans For Men Style Board

There's a German proverb about fashion that I constantly refer back to. It goes something like this: A man's taste can be judged by his wallet, watch, and lighter.

Though watches and lighters are nearly obsolete these days (at least from a functional perspective), the gist of this saying will always ring true...

Imagine this scenario. You're on a date. It's going great, all signs are positive. The bill comes. You whip out your wallet and hand your credit card to the waiter.

Scenario one: You have a run of the mill wallet, she doesn't even notice it. Fine, whatever, no harm done.

Scenario two: You have a stylish wallet, a design she's never seen before. It sparks a conversation--where you found it, why you like it, etc. She's impressed, your stock skyrockets.

Lesson: The little things matter.

And one of the most important little things is your wallet. 

Choosing the right wallet comes down to two things: 1) Style (obviously); and 2) Minimal (because you don't want to be like George Costanza).

Finding a balance between the two is tough; most of the slim wallets out there look like garbage. But I’m pumped to say I finally found a wallet that exceeds all my criteria: The DPTR Clamshell Wallet.

Here are the pros:

  • Holds a shit ton of stuff.
  • Made from thick high-grade leather.
  • Unique design.
  • Glides in and out of your pocket with ease.
  • Barely detectable in your pocket.

Here are the cons:

  • Sometimes tough to find the card you need on the spot.
  • Not great if you’re a cash guy.
  • At $60, it’s not cheap but it’s not outrageous either (a great wallet is an investment that will last you a lifetime).
