The wallet is one of the very few accessories that one carries around pretty much at all times, next to the smartphone and maybe a watch. Therefore it is important that you invest into something decent, a wallet that will last you for a while. We are big fans of buying a proper wallet and using it until it falls apart. Taste vary widely, therefore we also chose a rather diverse set of wallets in this latest edition of our Buyer’s Guide – premium leather, simple and subtle, photo prints, python skin – it is all in there.
