I have on occasion strayed from the content of this site’s namesake and today I want to do a little show and tell on vegan wallets. I am actually in the market for a new wallet, since my old one is on its last legs and is surviving on a bit of packing tape. To save me from future embarrassment, it is time for me to renew and upgrade.
Fortunately, the selection of cruelty free wallets for men is vast. I found a ton online, enough to make my head spin and limit this one post to a few that caught my eye initially. There is a lot to like here. Companies are experimenting with new materials and fabrics in lieu of stale old canvas (though I like a sturdy canvas wallet). From seat belts (Retool), tyvek (Kazbah), sail cloth (Flowfold), and even wood (Matt and Nat)! There is truly something for everyone here.
Bear in mind, however, that I am looking for a vegan wallet that is bi-fold and thin. I hate thick wallets that bulge. In fact, I would prefer one without the individual slots for cards on the inside. I’ve found that over time, your cards are susceptible to bending and breaking. I’m also not a huge fan of the cardholder and magic wallets, I find those to be cumbersome when looking for cash.
