The 10 Best Men's wallets

view gallery VIEW GALLERY

Whether you're strapped for cash or feeling flush, a smart new wallet can only be a sound investment

1. Topman

£10, red chambray, topman.com

The softer sister of regular denim, chambray is a great option for those who don't like leather. This has two places for notes and a zipped pouch.

2. Ally Capellino

£98, 'Rocky', allycapellino.co.uk

In classic Capellino style, this simple and sweet wallet is made from soft Italian leather with subtle embellishments.

3. Marc by Marc Jacobs

£95, python print, stylebop.com

PVC and leather embossed with a python effect will bring glamour to your pocket – and the most mundane of purchases.

4. Prada

£260, embellished, 0207 647 5000

Contrasting rows of crystal studs make this wallet stand out – after all, shouldn't men have a bit of glitz in their lives, too?

5. Mulberry

£120, key holder, mulberry.com

House, car, bike lock, someone's heart – the modern man has all manner of keys to keep track of and this zipped pouch provides a chic alternative to pockets.

6. Yves Saint Laurent

£175, embossed leather, ysl.com

The midnight blue of this embossed tweed leather makes an elegant alternative to classic browns and blacks. The signature Y is a nod to its designer credentials.

7. Paul Smith

£105, tan leather, 0800 023 4006

Lined inside with chocolate leather, the longer shape of this burnished wallet makes a nice change from the traditional square shape.

8. Margaret Howell

£285, double press stud, margarethowell.co.uk

Made in England, the vegetable-tanned leather of this folded wallet will soften with wear, developing a unique character.

9. Steve Mono

£40, card case, youmustcreate.com

Ditch that ratty plastic wallet for this handy pouch that is perfect for carrying your business cards, travel card and security pass.

10. Folk

£100, unlined, folkclothing.com

This unlined billfold has something of the great outdoors about it. But don't worry if you're not the hunting, shooting, fishing type – it also looks great in the city.
