(Hide & Seek Wallet - c/o Bellroy)
I don't know about you, but I am sick of sitting unevenly because of my back pocket. Menswear has slimmed down immensely--from jeans to shirts to sweaters. But somehow, along the way, our wallets didn't get the message.
A buddy of mine always walks around with his money-clip--ID, cash, and cards well on display. He doesn't have to deal with a thick wallet poking into his side. I could never switch to a money clip. First, I don't want the cashier at the grocery store to know how much cash I'm carrying around. Second, I'm not a drug lord, and this isn't Blow.
If you don't want to buy your accessories on SkyMall, like this guy (seriously, Batman?) then upgrade to a slimmer wallet. One made of leather.
I'm a big fan of Bellroy. A friend of mine showed me his Bellroy wallet a few months ago, bragging about how easy it fit into his skinny selvedge denim jeans; they were new (that's impressive).
Bellroy was kind enough to send me the new Hide and Seek model. I love the minimalist style and sleek design. It slides into my pocket easily, and the two-toned leather interior tells the world this isn't a typical wallet as I pay for my lunch.
My favorite feature of the Hide & Seek wallet is the hidden money section in the back. As I said before, I don't want to show all I've got to the creepy guy outside the gas station at 2am, or when I'm trying to haggle for some organic fruit at the farmers market--this hidden money pouch will get a lot of use.
There are a lot of innovative and stylish-as-f*ck wallets out there. However, a slim, stylish, and leather wallet is the most practical and will last you the longest.
