Learn what distinguishes a boy from a man
There comes a time when you take the step from being a young lad to a grown man. In this major transitional phase, you’ll need to check one very important thing – does your wallet express the feeling of professionalism from others? That Velcro wallet with the big logo on the front of the wallet was created for boys. It’s time for you to join the big boys; the first step of the many to your journey of manhood.
As you continue to read, keep in mind that wallets have all kinds of labels like, “high quality leather,” but they offer a fraction of quality you’re looking for. So how can you be sure that what you’re getting is worth your time, money, and most importantly, your image.
Let your wallet speak for you
Imagine if you had such a wallet that immediately demonstrated your high level of professionalism and class. You’re probably wondering, “what kind of wallet would that look like?” So your first step is to understand what exactly makes someone think that way about a wallet:
As you read, compare your wallet with the components that make a “quality” wallet, and ask yourself if your wallet fits this imagery:
- Style – one that fits you and says a lot about you. For example, for a professional look, you would want to buy one that would propel you to look at someone with the same wallet the same way. A wallet can also be fitting for today’s lifestyle – one that shows your taste compared to today’s modern fashion trends.
- Durability; a key quality in almost anything you purchase, but how can you tell if it’s durable? For the sake of this discussion, let’s use another example: a typical leather wallet is made from full-grain leather, a type of untouched and pure leather designed to withstand all sorts of temperaments – getting wet from the rain, being left out in the sun, dropped, jammed between things, or thrown around. Now that’s quality that guarantees durability.
- Practicality is a fairly straightforward characteristic. Sometimes you’ll have a lot of bills to carry around or you’d like something that can sustain the amount of cards you might have, so you need something that can fulfill both of those scenarios, big or small wallet; it’s got to be practical for each situation, can your wallet do that?
- Lastly, if you could have a comfortable seat or an uncomfortable seat, which would you choose? In all cases, you need something that is comfortable, but easily accessible from your pocket.
So now that you know what to look for in a wallet, wouldn’t you agree that you need something like this in your life? Now, the next question is how do you decide among all the different options out there? An excellent question.
So many choices, so little time
The most popular type of wallet to own is a bi-fold. Look for full-grain leather bi-fold wallets, they’ll be worth your money. Another type is a tri-fold, pretty self-explanatory.
Other types are a travel wallet or a checkbook wallet – these are designed to fit in your pocket easily. The travel wallet to carry your airport documents and the checkbook to easily slide in your pockets.
Another unique type of wallet is a money clip – one of the simplest wallets available now to hold your cash as well as cards and identification. It’s designed to be carried in the front pocket for easy access with its light weight.
The last type of wallet is a wallet adjusted to fit modern lifestyle – a phone wallet. These come in different types, such as a phone wallet/case, which covers the phone as well as holding your needed cards and identification. And another is a newer style with the card and identification holder in the back of the wallet. With today’s digital and technological age, users don’t need to carry around cash as much as they use to anymore. So yes, you have a variety of choices, but if you’re always on the go, you might want a phone wallet. If you hate having too many things at once, a money clip or bi-fold would suit your need. Remember…
