  • Noticed lately the nostalgic vibe every time you scroll through Instagram, Tiktok, Facebook or flip through magazines like Rolling Stone? Retro is back. Gear up gentlemen because fashion has taken a nostalgic turn. "Fashion tends to work in 30-year cycles," explained stylist, and author Heather Newberger. Throwback trends recently hit the peak with celebrity plaid homage to the MTV pop-punk scene. This is the biggest throwback wave we've seen since the nineties that reimagined the 60s and 70s that filled the runways with flared jeans and denim. Now, we're experiencing the rebirth of the disco decade and early aughts. And nowhere is this more obvious than in the back pockets of men. The fusion of old and new is presenting itself in a range of exciting new men's wallets. A decade ago we would've ridiculed these styles. Now they're red hot.

    2022's Hottest Throwback Wallets

    Vintage and retro have to hit a high level of nostalgia. But that doesn't translate to bringing back fashion from the grave. It's about taking inspiration from the golden era and infusing them into modern trends.

    GRID Copper Wallet (Antimicrobial)

    GRID, one of the pioneers of the modern men's wallet - makers of the slim metal wallet, pulled off a dope vintage look on their ultra-modern metal wallet. The muted copper color harks back to the days when men used to settle their differences with a Bowie. It's a clever vintage take on something that cannot deviate from modern minimalism. "We thought about rounding the corners off a little bit but that would be too much too soon. The retro scene needs to kick in harder before we can do that", explained CEO Mark when I spoke to him recently. Like all GRID's wallets, this has a premium metal construction and offers an unbreachable RFID guard. 

    Antimicrobial - Copper has a unique property that kills bacteria and viruses on contact. This is a clever bit of ingenuity that makes the wallet safer and more hygienic to carry than most wallets. Maybe we should all carry a copper wallet for now, especially if it comes with modern features and a retro design.

    Travelambo RFID Front Pocket Wallet

    Here's another brand that has successfully translated the modern wallet into the old. The shape and functionality are up to date with the modern needs of a cash-free economy. It's a men's cardholder wallet that's made from genuine leather. The leather's washed look is a throwback to the disco fashion of the 80s. The wallet comes with a strong RFID guard and money clip. 

    Cassette Tape Wallet

    We picked up this from Etsy and absolutely love it. There's nothing more nostalgic than cassette tapes and the maker uses it cleverly with a neat, old-fashioned wallet inside the tape. For added nostalgia, he uses a David Bowie cassette that makes the wallet an absolute must-have. It's fun, and a collector's item. There's no RFID guard or premium built to it. But this is as vintage-cool as any wallet can get.
