As a manufacturer of quality leather goods, finding the best leather wallet for men is a question we constantly ask ourselves. Whether you’re looking for a leather card case or a classic men’s bifold wallet, it’s important to think about both form and function.
You want your wallet to work great, look great, and also stand the test of time. At Billy Tannery, we’re confident we’ve cracked the formula for the perfect men’s leather wallet. You have come to the right place.

As with all leather products, we spend a huge amount of time researching to come up with the perfect wallet design. You don’t need bells and whistles; the best handmade leather wallets combine classic and minimalist design.
We all know that situation when you’re trying to pay for something and you can’t get a decent grip on the card in your wallet. Embarrassed that you were holding up the queue, you finally managed to draw a card.
We’ve seen some brands add overly complicated tabs or pulley systems to solve this problem, but they end up weakening and breaking. So rather than adding something to the wallet, our solution is to take something away. Each Billy Tannery wallet has a semi-circular cutout that allows you to slide out your most used cards from the bottom. The problem is solved.
WHOLE GRAIN GOAT LEATHER = GREAT LEATHER
When looking for the most durable genuine leather wallet, one of the most overlooked factors is the material itself. Many wallets are made of low-quality leather, which may confuse you at first, but will peel and fall apart over time. A high-end wallet will be with you for years, even decades, which is why it must be made from the highest quality genuine leather. Not only do you get a beautiful grain pattern unique to each piece, but it also lasts the longest.
For your handmade full leather wallet to be a joy to wear, the leather must also be light. To achieve this, they often shave really thin, but unfortunately this can weaken even the best skin.
This is where goat leather from our tannery comes into its own. Naturally lighter than cowhide, yet incredibly strong and durable. You really can’t do better for the wallet.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT SIZE HANDMADE WALLET
When it comes to performance, the size of your wallet is of course a personal preference, but it depends on how much you need to carry around on a daily basis. Some men like to carry a lot in their wallets and have every bank card, business card, receipt and plenty of cash on hand at all times. While others like to keep things to a minimum and carry only the essentials. At Billy Tannery we cater to both camps.
Our card wallet has three card pockets, that’s all. You can comfortably fit up to eight cards and a few folded notes, but you’ll never be tempted to carry too much. The slim silhouette also helps prevent the wrong kind of bulge in your jeans or a weirdly hanging jacket. “Once you become a Cardholder, you’ll never look back.” Or something like that.
