Choosing a mens wallet may seem a like simple thing and most people blindly chose a wallet without giving it a second thought. But let's think about it. This is an accessory we use everyday, an accessory that our friends and colleagues will get a look at every now and then. So why not make a statement? A wallet can also be a reflection of who we are, I mean I wouldn't expect Crocodile Dundee to be walking around with anything other than a Croc wallet?-. would you? Aside from the look and feel of a wallet, it also needs to be functional and suit our needs. Do we want a bi-fold or a tri fold, do we need a coin compartments? In this article we'll take a quick look at 2 of the most common types of wallets available then look at the style, design and quality you should consider when choosing either of these mens wallet.

The tri fold and bi fold wallets are the two most common types of wallets available. The Bi fold wallet has a single fold which makes it thinner than most Tri folds and normally allows for more card slots. It often does not have an ID window for your driver's license but it will fit more comfortably in your back pocket. The tri fold will often have a flap inside that has 1 or 2 ID windows for your ID and or a photo of your loved ones. Either of these types may also have a coin compartment, a zippered bill divider or hidden compartments for extra cards. Most wallets will have polyester or similar for both the lining of the wallet and the bill divide, this keeps the wallet from becoming less bulky when stuffed full of cards and bills. A wallet made entirely of leather for instance can be very thick. Of course if you don't need a lot of cards and other stuff in your wallet, then a wallet with an all leather interior has a very luxurious look and feel..

Prices vary greatly depending on the quality and materials used. A common fake leather wallet or cloth wallet can be as little at $10 - $15; these wallets generally don't last very long and are of fairly low quality. Aside from your average leather wallet, you may want to take a look at an exotic leather wallet. Prices range from as little as $50 up to $1000 depending on the type of leather, the grade of the leather and the quality of the workmanship, with handcrafted wallets being a unique one off choice. Crocodile leather wallets have long been a popular choice for people looking for a durable wallet that will last longer than most cow leathers. Ostrich leather wallets have become the pinnacle of high fashion because of the long and complicated tanning process. Full of natural oils, an ostrich leather wallet has a natural lustrous sheen with a soft and supple feel and is a reined elegant choice. A stingray wallet makes for an interesting choice with several finishes including a rough pebbly texture or a shagreen (chagrin) finish; a highly polished glassy finish that is sleek and refined. If you're a keen fisherman, you might checkout a shark skin wallet! These also come in many different finishes, which are surprisingly soft to the touch and are much stronger than traditional leathers. Aside from those already mentioned you can also get a lizard wallet , chicken skin or even fish skin wallets!

So when choosing your next wallet, take the time to look around. Want a real mens wallet? Make a statement with a wallet from Real Skin Wallets.
