Over the past few weeks, I’ve had the opportunity to check out Nomad’s Horween Leather Collection Lightning Wallet for iPhones, and it has saved me on more than one occasion!
If you are looking for a minimalist wallet that isn’t minimal in style or functionality you don’t want to look any further than the Essentialist Wallet. This wallet is serious about carrying your cards and cash and that’s just the beginning. Plus it looks like it means serious business. Add in the optional bottle opener and USB 3.0 drive and your wallet is much more than a wallet!
To start out this review, let me just say: I’ve wasted a LOT of time trying out minimalistic wallets, and “combination cards” (ahem.. COIN) that simply didn’t understand what I wanted when it came to consolidating all of my cards/information. But the Wocket Wallet is the CLOSEST I’ve come to something perfect. The Wocket Wallet is the wallet that actually blends technology, sophistication, leather, and credit cards all in one. They sent me over their wallet to review, and I’ve been doing just that for the past month or so, and I can actually be the one to say this…
One of the things that I loved about my monogram Louis Vuitton Zippy organizer wallet was its design. It could hold all of my credit and ID cards, bills, and plane tickets in one compact, zippable clutch The only thing it couldn’t do was hold my phone; if it had a little bigger pocket, it would have been perfect.
I look at wallets for three things: Simplicity, minimalism, and overall design. On average I carry around eight cards, along with a few cards and a MetroPass, so I want my wallet to house all of this. This is where the TGT Wallet helped me out.
Have you ever had a wooden wallet? Better yet, have you ever had a wooden wallet with the Game of Throne’s Stark House Sigil? Well I have, and you can also, with the Pyramid Wallet.
A fan of minimalism, one thing I love about small wallets is the ability to carry only the bare necessities with me. So when I had the opportunity to review Ainste’s Even Wallet Mini, I was surprised at how great it worked out.
A good wallet is hard to find, and essential to my everyday carry, separate in its own pocket from my cell phone. But one thing I’ve always struggled with is finding a decent wallet that isn’t just your traditional black or brown, and doesn’t leave a lump in my pocket. And my problems may have been solved with the Ridge Wallet 2.0. I had the opportunity to review the Ridge Wallet, which is a minimalistic wallet that simply does exactly what the company said it would when they originally launched a Kickstarter back in 2013. After raising over $250,000…
Personally, I’ve never been a big fan of “wallet cases” for cell phones because of the fear of your credit cards being exposed while on a call, so when Bellroy sent me their Phone Pocket Plus Case, I was ready. When you usually think of wallets that men carry, majority of them are brown or black, and they all look pretty dull. Bellroy’s Element Phone Pocket Plus available in Black, Slate Gray, or Cognac are certainly not cheap at $119.95, so when I received the Cognac color (personally picked out), I was actually happy I did not go the traditional…
The other day we reviewed the Wally Bifold slim wallet from Distil Union. Today we are taking a look at the smaller, thinner, even more minimalistic sibling, the Distil Union Wally Sleeve. This super-thin leather wallet sleeve retails for $29.99. It is for the person who wants to take their minimalist wallet to an entirely new, and thinner level.
Distil Union describes the Wally bifold minimalist wallet as the “super-slim leather billfold wallet.” There’s actually truth in advertising here. The Wally bifold is super-slim, made of leather and includes a money-clip built right into the wallet. It is, by far, the best minimalist wallet I have tried. I’ve been using one of the $59.99 wallets and love it.

This intelligent accessory has many functions, including a spending log, loss prevention, and a way to find your lost phone or wallet. You can order the SmartWallit from Amazon for $60 plus shipping.
