What’s the best thin men’s wallet for you? That depends on materials, construction, style and what you actually want to carry. Here are our favorite thin wallets for your inner minimalist.

Bison-Cash-Fold-Wallet

Bison Cash Fold Wallet

This one is for all those guys that rightly adhere to the sentiment that cash is king. Crafted from a single piece of Horween Chromexcel leather that will age beautifully over time, the Bison Cash Fold Wallet is the best thin wallet for carrying cash and nothing else. Drop some bills onto the longer piece of leather, fold the smaller part up and then fold it over itself to create a trifold cash holster that will easily contain a weekend in Vegas worth of bills. There’s no room for cards or change, but you have this much cash, that doesn’t matter.

DPTR-Clamshell-Wallet

DPTR Clamshell Wallet

The DPTR ultra thin leather wallet, they call it the DPTR Clamshell Wallet, works on a simple principle: take one piece of very good leather with a braided elastic band and fold it over everything you need to carry on a regular basis. Each of the Chicago made wallets is crafted from a single piece of 4.5oz brushed latigo Horween leather with a calf leather lining and a 3/8″ braided elastic band. It’s slim and sleek, but since this thin leather wallet doesn’t have any dedicated slots you can feel free to stretch it with a couple receipts, some extra cash or a few business cards.

Distil-Union-Wally-Bifold

Distil Union Wally Bifold

The Distil Union Wally Bifold took years to develop, but the overall design and patent-pending FlexLock pockets were well worth the wait. On either side of the bifold you’ll find room for a few cards with a strap that allows you to easily access any of the cards inside with a simple pull. On the inside you’ll find an adjustable money clip with space for enough cash for a night out on the town. Somehow, as if by magic, you can fit all of these things into the full-grain leather Distil Union Wally Bifold without creating something unsightly in your pockets.
