Best Men's Leather Wallet: Our Top Six Choices

When you take a moment to think about it, your wallet is actually a major part of your life. You might not see it that way, as you are probably used to having it around. 

After all, your wallet is silently nestled away in your pocket most of the time, going completely unnoticed. It’s not something you spend too much time thinking about until now.

But the thing is, a guy's wallet is always there, experiencing his entire life journey right by his side. We go to work with our wallets. We take vacations with them. Wallets are along for the full ride as we fall in love, break up, get promoted, and get fired. 

Our wallets are together with us as we hurtle through life, soaking up the good, bad, rough, and smooth.

Accessory for Life

Whenever you leave the house, you reach for it by default - and it stays with you everywhere. Quietly, steadfastly, reliably. Almost like a loyal pet that eagerly begs to venture with you wherever you go.

It stands to reason that something so important and ingrained in our lives would warrant a suitable degree of thought when picking out a new one. But how does one choose the best wallet for men, exactly? 

It's pretty simple, actually. Through this blog post, we are going to offer a few pointers before quickly running through the best wallets for men that Bull Sheath has to offer.

How to Choose the Best Wallet for Men

The perfect wallet should not only satisfy your practical needs but also match your style and ethos. But let's not over-complicate this: most people simply need somewhere to keep cards, cash, and ID, along with a few crumpled receipts and one or two photos. 

There are, however, a few pointers to keep in mind.


Classic leather is a popular choice for a reason. Apart from being smooth, resilient, and capable of toughing out decades of use, leather ages gracefully, adapting to your lifestyle while gaining character. No other type of wallet can do that. Just like yourself, leather improves in personality over time, and it becomes richer with the grace of a beautiful patina.

Leather's unique ability to develop a patina over time adds a touch of character, and if you want to double down on that individuality, leather is the perfect material for creating custom wallets, making it truly your own by engraving initials, names, sayings, song lyrics or even religious passages. 

Of course, other materials like nylon have their merits, especially in terms of smoothness and durability, but they lack the timeless quality that leather so effortlessly provides. 


In terms of choosing the best size men's wallet, just make sure it will fit comfortably in your pocket. That means not too bulky yet spacious enough to hold your essentials. The ‘perfect’ wallet size for an average pocket would be somewhere in the vicinity of 5 x 4 inches.

All Bull Sheath wallets (apart from our long wallets) are designed to slide perfectly into the average pants, jeans, or suit pocket.

A slim wallet helps maintain a streamlined profile, encouraging you to carry only what is necessary (human nature dictates that the more room you have, the more you tend to fill it), but a standard bifold is usually the best leather wallet for men, in terms of size.


This is our favorite element of the decision-making process for buying a men's wallet, as a well-crafted product is everything these days. Wallets have always come with a degree of handmade craft, but over the last couple of decades, there has been a tidal wave of cheap, mass-produced models arriving from overseas, and standards have slipped. 

We believe that quality construction is incredibly important in a wallet, so go ahead and look for uniform stitching and sturdy assembly. The chances of your wallet sticking around for life will heavily depend on its craftsmanship, and a well-made wallet reduces wear and tear or develops a rich patina.

You will know at first glance. Take one look at a Bull Sheath men's wallet, and you will get an immediate sense of quality without even picking it up. It's all down to the quality of the leather and the hand of the expert tanners in our Texas leather studio. As a result, Bull Sheath wallets simply ooze gorgeousness.


The best wallets for men should have space for bills and multiple cards. Too many unnecessary compartments can add bulk and make it cumbersome. A dedicated slot for an ID and possibly a separate section for coins can be useful, depending on your needs. That is pretty much all you need unless you hail from a particular profession that requires something more bespoke, like a police badge wallet, for example.


Good old-fashioned pickpockets are ‘on the way out’ and being replaced by remote card reading scammers. As a result, RFID-blocking technology is becoming more essential in this day and age. Many cards and passports now come with RFID chips, which can be wirelessly read. An RFID-blocking wallet offers protection against unauthorized scans, adding that extra layer of security.

Ultimately, your exposure to risk probably depends on where you live and work. If you spend any length of time using public transport or in busy urban areas, a men's RFID wallet could be something to think about. If you hail from quieter areas, the chances of being remotely scanned are quite slim. For now, at least.

Price and Style

While it's not necessary to overspend, investing in a high-quality men's wallet is cost-effective in the long run. Having said that, please do not be fooled by our affordable prices… Bull Sheath has always made a point of remaining affordable, but make no mistake: our product is seriously premium.

Either way, your own personal style, whether that be classic, modern, or minimalist, should guide your choice. A wallet is a statement of that style, and if you want to reflect a little class, elegance, and panache, the best men's wallets are easily traditional leather bi-folds. 

You don't need to spend fortunes, however. If you are looking for a decent quality leather wallet, something that will last the journey and look better with age, under $100 should do it easily.

Nylon, plastics, and everything in between? In that case, you're looking at under $50 for a reasonable wallet. Pay anything more than that, and you are handing over money for branding and flashy advertising. Most modern wallets are made in far-flung foreign soils for a few dollars - just remember that.

Not ours, though. Remember that, too. 

Created in Texas

Bull Sheath men’s wallets are designed and built by hand right here in America, using full-grain Texan hydes sourced from established tanneries and ranches. Quality stuff, in other words. Even then, most of our wallets are under $100, while some of them are less than $50. That’s a remarkable price, given that the hands of skilled tanners craft each wallet in our Texas studio. 

Let's take a look at a few choice picks. Six of the best wallets for men, brought to you by Bull Sheath Leather. Our studio in Texas takes pride in traditional leatherworking skills, creating wallets that not only last but gain character over time. As a team, we debated our entire range to find ‘six of the best,’ and you will find them below.
