From phones, laptops, TVs to wallets - everything is slimming down, getting more streamlined, and transmogrified into digital space. It’s the demand of modern time and tech. You can’t be out of touch. Or you’re out of the game. But some of us are still trying to stay close to the bulky bifold wallet of the 80s and 90s. Welcome to the world of minimalist, streamlined wallets and money clips. Slim wallets for men save space and save your back from wallet injury. They're an added gear to EDC efficiency, and investment to keep your money safe from skimming crooks. They’re part of your outfit that impresses the opposite sex. We live in a cash-free economy that demands the protection of data. Cash is still cow and we often end up in situations where nothing works but cash. No, I’m not referring to cash you need to buy dope (even though it does apply). We need cash as a safety reserve, maybe just enough for a weekend trip. So, what are the best, the most style-defining wallets that can meet the demand of the modern world and still keep your sartorial repute intact? Well, look no further because we’ve compiled a shortlist of the best minimalist wallets out there now.
We’ll kick off the show with two brands that literally rewrote history with a radical new view, style, design, and construction of men’s wallets. Ridge, the original manufacturer of the metal cardholder is still at the top of the game. They’re like the first-gen Windows computers of men’s wallets that changed everything. And then, came GRID with upgraded design, premium quality, build, and rethought ergonomic features that instantly hit the charts - GRID suddenly became a cult brand. These boys remind us of what Mac did to PC. A healthy rivalry (and mutual respect) pushed both to excel and began a new era of minimalist wallets and money clips. So, let’s line up the top contenders for style-defining men’s wallets and money clips.
These guys deserve a lot of credit as they revolutionized men’s wallets. Lightweight, tough and sleek, Ridge offers world-class wallets that fit any occasion. It also comes with a solidly built money clip.
The brand that started a cult with a very similar design to Ridge wallets - only redefined, flawless - built to perfection using premium quality metal and parts. They also rethought the ergonomics and made it easier to push the cards out. Their wallets are sleek, light, and tough as battle tanks. A smarter, cleaner design makes these wallets fit for an Apple showroom. The money clip in the back can hold enough cash for a weekend trip.
If you like iPhones, you’re going to love their leather cardholder. A dialed-down minimalistic cardholder of premium quality leather and build. Only a company like Apple can pull off a design like this. It’s MagSafe compatible which means you can slap it on the back of your iPhone 12 or 13 and look the part. For the first time, Apple got the pricing right at just $59.
