The Best Bifold Wallets
The bifold is the classic men’s wallet. It can hold cash, your driver’s license and more than a handful of credit cards, yet still fit easily into a back pocket. Often made of leather, it is the minimal, classy choice. Here are five great choices for you.
The Vesper by Uri Minkoff is a nice classy choice. Made of cowhide leather, it has six compartments for credit cards with thumb tabs for easy access, plus space for cash storage. It comes in black or cognac.
This velcro-closure nylon bifold channels the '80s—which could be a good or bad thing. It comes in black or a modern camo with an inside zippered pocket and credit card slots with a clear photo insert.
If you happen to be a CIA agent or deputy district DA, this is the wallet for you. Instead of having to dig around for your ID, this Fossil bifold features an easy flip-out with two, back-to-back ID windows smack in the center. It is made of leather, comes in black or brown with a stylish contrasting stripe, and sells for $45.
If slim (but not necessarily shady) is important to you, the Bellroy Low Down bifold should be your pick. Designed with the minimalist in mind, the leather Low Down has the simplest styling of the pack, removing all but the most essential features. The edges around the cards (it holds two to 10) are tapered in to keep the silhouette smooth and super slim. Comes in five colors, including Arctic blue.
This Jack Spade bifold is crafted from vegetable-dyed brown leather and embossed with a burnished anchor pattern. It features six credit card slots and two pocket sleeves, along with some subtle, butterfly-patterned fabric on the interior. Bonus: High likelihood of an embossed anchor pattern on your butt.
This billfold is crafted from premium leather through and through and includes six credit card pockets lined in faille. It is available in eight colors ranging from Navy to Bourbon (try Spruce for something a little different). Add monogramming for an extra-classy touch.
