Yep, men do buy wallets. While it’s true many of us acquire them (often from distant relatives on Christmas day), there are still plenty of grown-up folk out there who buy their own.

And we’re all for it. Because wallets are where we store our most prized assets, like cash and bank cards.

Though this in itself is a contentious issue. Why? Well, some people shudder at the idea of having to carry cash in a contactless society.

Others, however, can’t imagine having a wallet without separate sections for notes and coins.

But we’re not here to judge. That’s why, when we pulled this list together, we catered for all – from the anything-will-do wallet obtainers to the anti-coin innovators. We even threw in an option for big spenders who only deal in cash.

Our selection of the best men’s wallets were picked based on their design, functionality, aesthetic appeal and how many old receipts and loyalty cards they could hold.

We’ve covered options across every price range, from handcrafted leather designer cardholders to planet-first vegan contemporary wallets.

You can trust our independent reviews. We may earn commission from some of the retailers, but we never allow this to influence selections, which are formed from real-world testing and expert advice. This revenue helps to fund journalism across The Independent.
