Some of our editors choose to use phone cases that double as a wallet — totally acceptable. A cool men’s wallet is subjective. Some guys find it perfectly acceptable — and comfortable — when their wallets are monstrous bulges in their back pockets. While other (sane) people prefer to reduce pocket bulk. If you find slim and sleek more appealing, then you’ll appreciate these cool men’s wallets.
