Leather is by far the most common material used to make a stylish and durable wallet that has the potential to last for the long-term. Also, there are several types of leather to consider.
Cow Leather – this is the most popular choice for making men’s wallets. It has a great look and is extremely durable. But, the quality of cow’s leather can vary significantly, so there is the risk of buying a wallet that doesn’t feel very sleek or luxurious. Calfskin or similar soft leathers give the most luxurious feel.
Alligator skin – this is a type of leather with a very distinctive pattern. The craftsmanship and quality of a handmade wallet in this material is extremely attractive and stylish. But, there are plenty of fake versions of alligator skin products, so it is necessary to be cautious to ensure you are buying the real thing.
The synthetic wallets are versatile and can be made with very interesting, fun and colorful designs. They can easily be styled to look much like cotton or leather. This gives the option of a much cheaper wallet that still has the ability to provide a real resemblance to the desired look. Also, the synthetic wallets can have very unique designs and can be made with random materials like old tires and seat belts. Even though this type of wallet doesn’t have the stylish looks of real leather, they are still a great option for the casual environments.
