There never can be too much money, and while nowadays you can store them on a single plastic card connected to your bank account, many places still require you to pay in cash. Of course you can get around with money in your jacket pocket or right in your purse, but there is a chance that they will accidentally get lost while you get another item from that pocket. So to prevent that it is better and safer to store money in a wallet.
There are many superstitions about wallets: that they cannot be empty, that they have to be a specific color matched to your birth date to become a money magnet. Some even say that you should buy your wallet only from a male manager at the specific date of the month. For less superstitious people though, the wallet just serves its direct purpose: it stores your cash.
What should we look for in wallets
Now, there are several parameters for choosing a wallet. Let’s assume that you are planning to buy a women’s wallet. What to look for?
Black, every hue of brown, golden and yellow colors are considered as the main ones, although women’s wallets come in all colors and hues. The red wallet can be considered as a good present either for a young girl or for a mature woman. You could even buy several wallets in different colors to match one wallet with one outfit if you like to do so.
Your new wallet can be made of leather, textile, nubuck, and then you can also choose between patent leather, lacquered leather, and so on. Pay attention to the style so that your accessories would not mismatch drastically. Hedonist Chicago can offer you leather wallets in multiple forms and colors.
The form of the wallet depends on the type of things stored in it. It can be a small bag for coins or a large horizontal or vertical wallet which contains your paper cash unfolded. Usually large wallets also have slots for business cards, abonements etc, but they are unfit for a very small women’s bag. In this case it is better to consider two-fold or tri-fold wallets: they usually store cash and coins as well as business cards due to their form, and are fastened by a button or a zip. It is also recommended to have one slot in your wallet fastened by a zip.
The furniture of a wallet also has to be considered because the better its quality, the longer this wallets would serve you. The metal furniture would serve you much longer than the plastic one. Pay attention to outer furniture and to the inner one as well. All the stitches must be made accurately and there should not be any strings. In cases where the parts of a wallet are attached by the glue, think twice before buying it — such wallets could wear out faster.
The general advice for choosing a wallet is that it should be comfortable to use because you open it at least several times a day. Also it would be better to get a waterproof wallet for an emergency so that your cash would not get wet. Hopefully this will help you to find the wallet to please your eye and fulfill your needs.
