Picking and choosing the right fashion accessories can make a big difference in the long run. While it is true that the outerwear is important, you should not forget the smaller items. For instance, you should go above and beyond to ensure that you’re carrying the right wallet. To ensure that you’re living a great manly lifestyle, you need a good wallet. Why? You’re going to find out in the guide below.

Staying Organized

A lot of dudes are not organized in the least. In fact, a lot of men will have a tough time finding their credit card, license and other important documents. To avoid the hassle and live a real man’s lifestyle, you need to make sure that you remain organized. This is where a good wallet will enter the picture. By carrying a wallet, you’ll be able to keep your important documents nearby at all times. With a wallet, you’ll always know where those items are. That can help you avoid headaches and heartbreaks in the future.

Looking Professional

Professional people know where their important documents are at all times. If you’re searching through your briefcase for important items, you can pretty much guarantee that you’re going to look bad. In fact, your bosses and colleagues are going to form a bad opinion about you. This is something that you need to avoid at all costs. To make yourself look professional at all times, you need to be carrying a wallet. Be sure to check out the latest wallet reviews online and then invest in the best one for your unique preferences and budget.

Being Fashionable

A lot of men believe that fashion is only for women. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Men might not take it as far, but they should still do their best to make sure that they look great at all times. After all, you need to make sure that you’re setting a good example and making good impressions on others. One of the best ways to do this is by wearing fashionable clothing and carrying the right fashion accessories. Your wallet is definitely going to fit into the latter category. You shouldn’t go anywhere without a stylish wallet in your side or back pocket.

Always Ready

Most men live life on the go. They’re constantly required to run from one place to the next for various reasons. For instance, you might have to run to your child’s school to take care of some problem. Or, you might have to run back to the office to finish a little paperwork. As a man, you need to be ready at all times and you need to be prepared for pretty much anything and everything. A wallet might be irrelevant, but it can make a big difference. With a wallet in your back pocket, you’ll have everything you need and you’ll always be ready for everything life throws your way.

Convenient For All Situations

Men will ultimately find themselves in a wide variety of situations. For instance, they’re often out there in the workforce. They’re slamming hammers and using drills. In other cases, they’re hiking the trails or riding horses. Men just never know what type of situation they’re going to find themselves in. This is why they need a way to keep their items organized and readily available. This is why they should be carrying a wallet. Wallets are far better than purses and fanny packs. With a wallet, you can guarantee that you’ll be able to carry your important items anywhere. Your items will be available at work, on the trail and in the tent.

Being Dependable

Finally, it is true that men need to be dependable in this day and age. They need to make sure that everyone can rely on them. This is why they need to carry a wallet. If you do not carry a wallet, you might forget your money or debit card at home. Then, you’re no longer going to be dependable. With a wallet, this will almost never happen! If you want to be able to help everyone you love, you should be carrying a wallet and it should contain your money and debit card!

What To Look For When Buying A Leather Wallet https://www.menstylefashion.com/look-buying-leather-wallet/ https://www.menstylefashion.com/look-buying-leather-wallet/#respond Wed, 29 Nov 2017 04:38:33 +0000 http://www.menstylefashion.com/?p=70457 Just about every man carries a wallet, whether they are going to a casual or corporate event. Since you probably already own a wallet, it is highly likely that you have been out of the wallet-shopping scene for quite some time. Well, you will definitely be shocked when you find the many different available options, offering more modernity, convenience and comfort. Below, you will discover several tips to help you find the perfect wallet.

Space-Efficient Storage

There is no doubt many designers have added so many new features that the size of the wallet has become an issue. In fact, many modern wallets are now so large that they will barely fit into the back-pant pocket. If you are looking for a professional styled wallet, you will definitely want to avoid wallets that stick out the back of your pocket. Instead, you should gear your shopping toward wallets that provide space-efficient storage.

Such wallets will offer plenty of space for your credit credits, photos and cash. This design is more suitable for men who do not carry a lot of accessories in their wallet and want to look coordinated and professional.

Keep Money Flat Or Folded

With the invention of the convenient debit and credit card, consumers have steered farther away from utilizing cash to make purchases. With this said, it never hurts to have a little cash on hand for emergencies and other purposes. Now, to decide how you want to carry that cash will determine what type of wallet to purchase. Ask yourself do you want to keep your money folded or flat. If you choose flat, which is more convenient and neater than the folding option, you will need to purchase a large bi-fold wallet.

The bi-fold long style wallet may be your best option. However, it is important to note that this wallet will stick out of the top of your pocket, whether you are wearing it in back pant or shirt pocket. These wallets are available in a variety of styles and designs, so you will easily find one for your casual and business attire.

Material

There is absolutely no doubt that wallets are made from a wide variety of materials. Leather is definitely one of the most popular. You can learn more about leather wallets here. Just remember that leather is not your only option, but it is one of the better options. When attempting to choose a wallet, you will want to choose a material that will last a lifetime. You should also make sure that you do not have any allergies to the material in question. Do your best to choose a material that will last a lifetime, while also avoiding any materials that may cause your skin to develop a rash. This will help to ensure that you’re able to use the wallet for the rest of your life, without any troubles.

Carbon Wallet

Bifold Or Trifold

Another thing to remember is that wallets are available in various styles. Bifold and trifold wallets tend to be the most popular. Trifold wallets fold three times. They usually have a stable center and two sides that open. A bifold wallet will only open once. Each option is acceptable, but only one will be right for your individualistic needs. Bifold wallets tend to be smaller and more compact. Trifold alternatives are bigger and they usually offer more storage space. With that being said, you will need to find a middle ground and choose the option that works best for you.

Trifold Wallet

Driver’s License Holder

Finally, you should definitely make sure that your wallet has a driver’s license holder. There is a good chance that you’re required to show your driver’s license to someone on a daily basis. It might be a cop, a security guard at work, or a local clerk behind the counter. With a clear license holder in your wallet, flashing your driver’s license will be quick and easy. It is truly in your best interest to make sure that your wallet has a clear driver’s license holder!

It is also favoured by engineers for its precision and im-permeability and preferred by surgeons for strength; before ultimately being chosen by Stewart Stand for its beauty and security.

Warning: A non-numeric value encountered in /home/124143.cloudwaysapps.com/yfxnzhjztp/public_html/wp-content/themes/valenti/library/core.php on line 1444
A wallet is probably the only accessories we use without consistently day after day, month after month, even year after year without any consideration of season, time or mood you are. Nevertheless its design doesn’t seem to change and improve with time. Big wallets that don’t fit or only with difficulty fit in the pockets are the majority around and those who seek the minimalist versions have to sacrifice storage capacity and have to fold the bills more than once to fit them inside.

This is where Minimum Squared has found a way to efficiently store your most used wallet items into one small and ultra convenient wallet.

The result is a wallet with 4 pockets that fit up to 10 cards and a slot where most of the international currencies can be placed without the need of previous folding. The wallet has been designed to fit some of the biggest (in size) currencies in use, i.e. the 500 Euro note (160 x 82mm/ 6.30 x 3.23in) and the 50 pound sterling note (156 x 85mm / 6.14 x 3.35in). The wallet size (filled with 10 cards) is approximately 92x65x15mm /3.6×2.56×0.59in.

Minimum-Squared MenStyleFashion Review

The cards are organized inside the wallet in a way that once it’s closed the cards are stacked as in a credit card holder but are placed in 4 pockets. The closing method is a flat braided elastic that comes in various other colors .

Finally the last and most difficult requirement was to come up with a design that used the minimum number of constructive elements possible. This is achieved by folding a single pattern of leather several times in a way that the aforementioned 4 pockets and slot for currency are created. This patented pattern with pockets and slot is folded and then hand stitched with a single waxed linen thread for better durability in their small atelier in Spain.

Minimum-Squared MenStyleFashion Review

Today I’m going to review their Tan Brown Leather Wallet with Dark Blue Thread on 5 aspects.

Packaging

You’ll find that how a product is wrapped and delivered to you makes a hell of a difference to how you perceive the product inside. I think that when you see effort has been put into the box or packaging, you’re far more likely to treat the item with more respect and care.

When the wallet was delivered, I was greeted by a small brown, hand-closed box as seen below.

Minimum Squared MenStyleFashion Review

Upon opening the box, I see text written to explain the origins of the wallet which reads:

” The wallet that you now hold in your hands is made in our small atelier in Spain, where a precision laser cut single piece of high quality leather is folder several times and then hand stitched with premium waxed linen thread manufactured in France. 

The leather we use comes from a small family owned tannery in England, applying a traditional tannage technique that uses only materials or pure vegetable origin.

You can place up to 10 cards in the 4 pockets available. There is also place for most of the international currency notes without the need of previous folding.

Hope you like our design. Enjoy it.”

The wallet fit like a glove in the box and with a simple pinch of the elastic, I pulled the wallet out.

Minimum-Sqaured11

Appearance

If you’ve read any of my previous reviews, you’ll know that when it comes to choosing a leather product, I almost always choose brown. So, again, I chose the Brown Leather option for this wallet. Of course, if you wanted, you could choose from their array of other leather colors (seen below) but the brown suited me just fine.

Minimum-Squared MenStyleFashion Review

I also opted to have a dark blue/Navy stitching and elastic band as I feel it compliments the brown really well. Something I really enjoy about this wallet is its rustic look. I like that its one piece of leather folded and stitched and held together by a strap. Something about it feels very modern but medieval at the same time. I also enjoy the imprinted logo on the bottom.

Minimum-Squared MenStyleFashion Review

Something that very worthy of mention is the size of the wallet. I have provided the dimensions in a previous paragraph but I wanted to offer my opinion on the size by the way it feels in the hand and in the pocket. In the hand, the wallet is just the right size. If you could imaging walking around with your current wallet in your hand, you’d feel a bit weird. The wallet would be to fat, or too large to feel normals walking around with it, right? If you were to walk around with the Minimum Squared wallet in your hands, it would feel, well… normal!

Material Quality

Quality is something that people experience in different ways. For me, if I’m getting a leather product I want the leather smell oozing from it. I want to experience the leather with every sense possible. With this wallet, the leather smell is faint but present on the outside and powerful once you open it up.

To the touch, the wallet is silky smooth and valuable. It almost feels like I’ve had and used the wallet for years already.

Ease of Use

Having used the wallet as my primary wallet for the last few days, I’ve discovered to ways to use the wallet according to your preference. One is more convenient that the other (in my opinion).

The two options you have are in the folding of the wallet. You can either fold the wallet so you have the flap in, or out. If you opt for the flap in, you’ll have to lift and open the wallet with the elastic band. If you fold it so the flap is displayed on the outside, you can open the wallet by simply lifting the flap. This way, the wallet ‘pops’ open and you have immediate access.

Minimum-Squared MenStyleFashion Review

Flap Inside

Minimum-Squared MenStyleFashion Review

Flap Outside

To close the wallet securely, either fold so the flap is in or out depending on your preference. Pull the elastic band over to secure and you’re good to go.

Storage

As you’ve read before, this wallet claims to hold pretty much all currency notes and up to 10 cards in it 4 pockets. While I believe this is true, I won’t be packing 10 cards into it. For me, I use the wallet to hold my money (notes) and 4 cards only. This way, the wallet remains super thin, ultra light and the leather with stay in great condition for longer.

Minimum-Squared MenStyleFashion Review Minimum-Squared MenStyleFashion Review Minimum-Squared MenStyleFashion Review

Minimum Squared Wallet Review
Overall, I see this wallet not as a 'Store everything' item, but rather as a speciality item. I place my 4 most used cards in there along with some notes and that's all! I don't want to pack this thing full to the brim! For a lightweight, high quality wallet, this for sure is the way to go. If you enjoy sitting on a fat wallet, then perhaps this isn't what you want. Needless to say, I really like mine.

HUDWOOD – Handcrafted Wooden Carabiners And Wallets https://www.menstylefashion.com/hudwood-handcrafted-wooden-carabiners-and-wallet/ https://www.menstylefashion.com/hudwood-handcrafted-wooden-carabiners-and-wallet/#respond Mon, 15 Feb 2016 16:12:48 +0000 http://www.menstylefashion.com/?p=43600 Hudwood

Minimalist Wooden Wallet

This is a minimalist wallet, which has a wooden outer rim and elastic straps on both sides. This rim is exactly the size of a credit card and allows you to stack a lot of cards. If you need to store coins you can insert a coin box and close the box with one of your credit cards. Don’t worry about loosing the coins as the rim is wide enough and the elastic bands keep the cards in place. You can see how this wallet works in the two videos below.

I love minimalist wallets as they do not show big when in your trousers. The design of the wallet prevents damage to your cards. This wallet weighs only 32.9 grams and it comes with 2 sets of interchangeable bands in white and in black.

The wallet can hold:

  • coin box + 3-8 cards + cash OR
  • 9-13 cards + cash

You can take one of your credit cards out and stick it on a 90 degree angle and your wallet turns into a mobile stand which is great for watching videos.

Wallets – 5 Different Styles For Your Back Pocket https://www.menstylefashion.com/wallets-5-different-styles-for-your-back-pocket/ https://www.menstylefashion.com/wallets-5-different-styles-for-your-back-pocket/#respond Thu, 26 Nov 2015 06:10:31 +0000 http://www.menstylefashion.com/?p=23562 Wallets - 5 Different Styles For Your Back Pocket

Wallets – 5 Different Styles For Your Back Pocket

Let’s be brutally honest for a moment, when it comes to fashion and style us gents are an uncomplicated bunch, we know what we like and we stick to it. Unlike our female counterparts, who chop and change their outfits on an almost daily basis, we men are not dictated merely by fads and whimsical winds of fashion, we’re a loyal bunch – if we find a brand we like, chances are we shall return to purchase from said brand time and time again – who like to keep our style sharp and our fashion not overly fussy. Of course there are men who break these rules, the trend setters, ground breakers, the men who simply want to stand out from the crowd, yet in the main, conformity is the order of the day and while there is nothing wrong with this approach to the ways in which we present ourselves, change as the say is as good as a rest.

One subtle yet elegant way to break these traditional habits is through our choice of accessories and more specifically the wallet we carry in our back pocket. The wallet is perhaps the perfect example of us men and our troubles evolving with the ever demanding changes in style and fashion; men love to have one wallet and seem to see it as some kind of honour that there wallet clings on to life no matter how beaten or frayed it is. We have clothes, shoes and even accessories (ties, hats etc) for each occasion so why not wallets? The wallet should accompany your outfit, it speaks volumes for your character and can easily blend in with the correct outfit making it an essential tool in your accessory kit.

Here’s a quick look at wallets for five very different occasions. All of these Wallets are for sale at Lombres the Wallet Specialists

Edward Field Wallets – A Perfect Combination? https://www.menstylefashion.com/edward-field-wallets-a-perfect-combination/ https://www.menstylefashion.com/edward-field-wallets-a-perfect-combination/#respond Tue, 17 Nov 2015 23:49:56 +0000 http://www.menstylefashion.com/?p=39949 In an increasingly frantic world, it’s no surprise that most successful products being released aim to simplify life in one way or another. Recently launched wallet company Edward Field does just that with their flagship product—The Edward Field Wallet—by thoughtfully combining wallet and phone.
wal3
Born out of the necessity to minimize the items in your pockets, the Edward Field Wallet took the utility found in many phone cases and re-approached the design with an eye toward what we love about classic wallets—quality and craftsmanship. Each one is constructed with 100% full-grain Italian calf leather, unanimously regarded as among the most supple and durable leather available. Thanks to generations of Italian leather producers, the wallet forms a custom mould to the contents inside and develops a beautiful patina over time.
 wal4
But the high quality leather is only half the battle. To attach the phone they use micro suction—the innovative material usually reserved for attaching GPS devices to wind shields—which forms a secure bond with thousands of microscopic suction cups. The suction doesn’t wear out, and the wallet only gets better with age. To top it off, each one is handmade in the US of A.
wal1
Keeping with the trend, the company sells directly to consumer. Without the expensive retail mark-up and big advertising campaigns, it can sell its wallets for a fourth of the price of comparable models. And as a sweetener, when you upgrade your phone, they’ll sell you a new one (with proof of upgrade) for 40-50% off.
 wal2

Kickstarter Crowdfunding

Founder Teddy Winthrop and co-founder Joey Jordan have taken to Kickstarter to raise the necessary funds to place bulk orders and accommodate different phone models. The Wallet is currently available for pre-order for the iPhone 5/5s, iPhone 6/6s, and iPhone 6 Plus—ready to ship the first week of December. The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Note 5 are also available, but are slotted to ship in February. A new design with a snap button was just released, and more designs are expected to come.

Top 5 Luxury Mens Leather Wallets in the UK https://www.menstylefashion.com/top-5-luxury-mens-leather-wallets-in-the-uk/ https://www.menstylefashion.com/top-5-luxury-mens-leather-wallets-in-the-uk/#respond Wed, 28 Oct 2015 11:48:54 +0000 http://www.menstylefashion.com/?p=38414 A luxury leather wallet, alongside a man’s watch and shoes, is perhaps his most significant accessory. Forget designer brands – many of them mass-produce in Asia, as it’s the only way to keep up with the huge global demand. For truly top notch luxury leather wallets, instead consider the five companies below.

1) Smythson

Although 125 years old, Smythsons languished for much of its history, including a spell as a subsidiary of John Menzies, the high street newsagent. A management buyout in 1998 was a catalyst for the launch of a truly forward looking heritage-based luxury British brand though. With its stationary lines now secondary to its leather goods, Smythson offers a range of wallets that value simplicity of design and quality of manufacture over gimmicks. They hold three Royal Warrants, and their wallets, which are manufactured in Spain, are made to last a lifetime.

Smythson-Mara-8-card-brown-printed-comp

Pick of the pack: Mara 8 card wallet in brown printed calf leather £185

2) Aspinal of London

Aspinal was founded in 2001 by former music business mogul Iain Burton, and despite a rocky first few years it has now become a household name and harbours grand plans for global domination. Aspinal has built its reputation on the quality and eye-catching designs of its handbags in particular, and by conjuring the illusion of being a long-established English heritage brand. To start with it manufactured all of its products in England, and it still does some of them, though the majority are now made in Eastern Europe. The company has a retained a high quality of manufacture at an accessible price though, and offers a sizeable collection of simple but elegant wallets.

Pick of the pack: Leather jeans wallet in smooth black and smooth red £55

Pick of the pack: Leather jeans wallet in smooth black and smooth red £55

3) Ettinger

Holders of the Prince of Wales’ Royal Warrant, Ettinger is a family business founded in the 1930’s. Since purchasing James Homer Ltd, a former saddler business, in 1999, the company has gone from strength to strength. Ettinger wallets are all handmade in England, and they are presented in collections, some of which are collaborations with other luxury brands such as Bentley and Wimbledon. Ettinger also pioneered the trend of traditional wallets having different coloured covers and interiors. Cutting edge concept and design combined with master craftsmanship comes at a price though, if not quite as much as an actual Bentley.

Pick of the pack: Saint Crispin bracken & eggshell 6 card wallet £216.67

Pick of the pack: Saint Crispin bracken & eggshell 6 card wallet £216.67

4) Estados

A relative newcomer at just five years old, Estados’ British designs are handmade in Argentina from the finest Argentine calf leather, which is some of the best in the world. This is for the same reason that Argentine beef is so good, because Argentine cattle live in a sort of bovine paradise in the clement climate of the Pampas plains around Buenos Aires. Following Ettinger’s lead in combining two leather colours, Estados wallets compare favourably with some of the most expensive on this list but at a price nearer Aspinal’s.

Pick of the pack: 8 card billfold wallet in British racing green and tan £63.99

Pick of the pack: 8 card billfold wallet in British racing green and tan £63.99

5) Tusting

Tusting is a fifth generation family business that produces a range of classic leather luggage and accessories. Their wallets are handmade in their English workshop using leather from Scandinavia, America, England, and South Africa. While wallets aren’t the focus of their collection, and so their range is relatively small, the quality is excellent. A safe choice for a fine traditional wallet.

Pick of the pack: Hip wallet in dark navy and tan £150

Pick of the pack: Hip wallet in dark navy and tan £150

Danny P. is known for creating some really great leather goods for people looking for style and practicality. I personally reviewed another item from Danny P. a while back – Leather Wallet for iPhone 6 and wasn’t disappointed. This time I’ve been given the chance to review one of Danny P.’s Slim Wallets and here are my thoughts.

Packaging

If you read my previous review, you’ll know that Danny P.’s Packaging is one of the best I’ve ever encountered. Make sure you go over to the other review to see it. Wax sealed with artistic string and uncomplicated packaging make for a truly genius box.

Thickness

DannyPstyle.com offers a few versions of wallet. The Leather Coin Wallet which is coming out soon, and the Slim Leather Wallet. I was curious to see the difference in the thickness of the Slim Leather Wallet because my previous wallet really started to impact the way I sat down. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been sitting on an uneven platform due to the size of my previous wallet. This is something I’m certainly not worrying about any more with the Danny P. Wallet. It’s thin enough that I barley feel it when sitting, but thick enough to know its there. For me, that the perfect combination. If you want to get all technical about the thickness, its 4.69 x 3.54 x 0.43 inches (119 x 90 x 11 mm).

Capacity

The Slim Leather Wallet is able to hold 8 cards and a seemingly unlimited cash amount! The notes department is massive! You can certainly see that it is made for those with American currency. Even though my British notes look a little small in the wallet, this is something I like. It actually enables me to segment my wallet into a cash and receipts section without packing the wallet too full.

You’ll also find two areas underneath the card slots to store your pictures and any other cards you might want to store. Despite not having a coin section, this wallet is going to be my everyday wallet for sure.

Materials

Danny P. always use the best Handmade Italian Leather and even say it will last you a lifetime. The wallet comes with one of my favourite things, the smell of real leather. The wallet is available in three colour variations; Black Leather, Brown/Blue Leather (The one I have) and Dark Brown Leather. All three look great and I’d certainly have no problem wearing any one of those styles.

Dannyp2

Uses

The next question I want to tackle is “When Does One Use This Wallet?”. Well the great thing about this wallet is that it can really work in both a professional and casual scene. With the Leather iPhone Wallet Case, I only use it in a professional situation; perhaps when I’m wearing a suit or I’m in a fancy restaurant. It could be used as a daily case too, but that’s my preference. For the Slim Leather Wallet, I’m opting to use it as my everyday wallet. I can easily see however, that someone else might only use it on special occasions, and it would look great too.

These products have the ability to suit a variety of scenes, styles and needs. That’s why I love Danny P. so much. They are versatile, fashionable in every situation and very high quality.

Danny P. - Slim Leather Wallet - Review
If I am to give this wallet a score out of 10, I would certainly be giving it a 9. The reason being that, as a Brit, the coin section is something that really helps in a wallet. Then again, having coins in the wallet would compromise the 'Slim' side of things. Never the less, I'm using this as my everyday wallet.

Ulterior Motive – Menswear Accessories To Set You Apart https://www.menstylefashion.com/ulterior-motive-menswear-accessories-set-apart/ https://www.menstylefashion.com/ulterior-motive-menswear-accessories-set-apart/#comments Sat, 26 Jul 2014 19:33:01 +0000 http://www.menstylefashion.com/?p=24070 It’s very common that most businesses are formed out of frustration. So co- founder Bruce Hakan decided to come up with menswear accessories with an Ulterior Motive in mind. The one thing that stood out with this brand is the way they photograph their accessories. Trust me I have written thousands of articles and it certainly caught my eye. In fact at times I thought hell that’s subtle but very detailed at the same time. As you all know you guys are all about the finer details making sure it gets noticed. For me this brand has a very clear ambition, which is to offer something different as opposed to most of the accessories available today. This label is about inspiring any man if he dares to cross the conservative line, to break free and be a rebel without a pause.

In Bruce’s own words, Ulterior Motive is more rock than business.

Everyday Ties

The products Ulterior Motive designs have the goal to carry. For example the ties are an important part of their product range. When it comes to ties, Ulterior Motive’s philosophy is that you can wear a tie almost anytime. It believes the reason why (almost) nobody does this today is that the ties that you find in stores are either meant for business or dinner parties. That is a subtle edge, not to be in-your-face, but rather something you notice in the details. It would never put out a t-shirt with just the logo, but most likely a woven skull on the back lining of a tie. So with these subtleties in designs it’s all about giving your neck let alone your style some alternative respect.

Pocket Square

The first thing to keep in mind with a pocket square is to learn how to fold one. Once you’ve grasped that then it’s all about being bold by teaming your pocket square with your matching tie. However this is Ulterior Motive we are talking about, so why not mix and match your tie with your pocket square. It’s a great ice breaker for any occasion and what the hell, it’s all about that detail and who is noticing it. Clash of the prints is always a controversial statement that will keep your friends or businesses relations always wondering what is your alternative motive?

Wallets – Give Your Pocket Some Respect

Let’s face it when the cash is being used and abused a wallet can give out a clear message. What does the colour or pattern of your wallet say about you? You’re a man who is not afraid to push boundaries. One that likes to be noticed in a subtle way with the finer things in life. A professional clear message that your wallet may have another Ulterior Motive that style cannot be bought it has to be owned.

Ettinger Wallets – Pinstripe, Crocodile Leather, Bentley https://www.menstylefashion.com/ettinger-the-pinstripe-wallet-collection/ https://www.menstylefashion.com/ettinger-the-pinstripe-wallet-collection/#respond Thu, 27 Sep 2012 06:40:32 +0000 http://www.menstylefashion.com/?p=3740 Ettinger Wallets - The Pinstripe Wallet Collection

Ettinger Wallets

A wallet is a very personal accessory. Most men treat their wallets with no respect. When a man brings out his wallet in public for me it states a lot about his attitude towards money and business. Ettinger is a company that understands the power of owning a wallet that illustrates the personal character each man has.  The wide range of luxury wallets will have you seriously thinking about who you want to be seen as?

The traditional English pinstripe suit is clearly associated with business. My favourite wallet is the unique pinstripe collection. This leather billfold shows the attention to detail and level of craftsmanship that Ettinger is renowned for: the silk-screened pinstripes are perfectly aligned with the edges of the wallet and the patterns join perfectly.

If you ever feel yourself stuck for a conversation starter these bags and accessories are a sure way to get people talking. All made from upcycled materials that would otherwise be destined for landfill, they have been given a new lease of life with some clever thinking and attention to detail.
