The Best Credit Cardholders

For many men the following perennial dilemma applies: how should we carry our currency? While the traditional wallet or coin purse are both sound options, from experience the former tends to become bulky while the latter oft veers on the feminine side of things (neither of which are messages I’m wanting my currency to convey – you?). Let’s pause to understand what it is we’re hoping to accomplish. For me the goal has been consistent: to find something that fuses function with design. Ideally the result is sleek, luxurious and detail-oriented – a quality piece that is carefully thoughtful in both its construction and purpose. The solution? The unassuming efficiency of a credit card holder, which, I’ll have you know, has been constant in proving itself useful (and not only for its ability to slip into the back pocket of even the skinniest jeans).

Regarding options, there are many. Take Mulberry’s Cross-Grain Leather Cardholder for instance. Constructed from the butteriest of leathers, Mulberry’s cardholder offers discretion, craftsmanship, and room for five credit cards (or, and speaking from experience, three credit cards and solid wad of cash). Conversely Balenciaga’s Studded Leather Cardholder packs just the right punch – namely one with attitude. Five rows of square studs, each finished in the same cool blue tone as the surrounding leather, add texture (an obvious benefit here being grip). While Burberry’s Textured Leather Wallet does in-fact have a zip and therefore could be interpreted as a coin purse, I consider it a seriously secure cardholder (this being entirely justified seeing that there are in-fact three interior card slots). But the pièce de résistance must be Bottega Veneta’s Intrecciato Woven-Leather Cardholder, in all its hand-crafted Italian glory. Featuring the brand’s signature weave, Bottega Veneta’s cardholder offers unparalleled luxury and efficiency (there’s space for six card holders). I couldn’t ask for more.

  • These are great! I’m not a huge fan of bulky wallets either and I love my credit card holder!

  • THIS IS WHAT I NEED! I have a huge wallet (same size as an iPhone 6 plus) and of course a huge smartphone or “phablet” according to some people. Often times those two don’t fit on my purse so I always opt to ditch my wallet instead, then my credit card & some few bills are scattered inside my purse. These will keep it organize. I particularly like that studded Balenciaga cardholder.

    Absolutely love the mulberry wallet, although maybe in a different colour. Textured leather looks really good!

    These are so sleek and non-descript. Really like that. I ditched wallets for a small card/money pouch from Patricia Nash so I’m all for it.

  • Great statement how should we carry our currency. I always have so much to put in my portefeuil. But these are great options and chic options 🙂

    The Prada one is really good also 🙂

    These card holders look nice, but paying 100 usd or more for that is nonesense. Diesel card holders or Von Baer Shekel card holder look even better, but cost 2-3 times less than these.
