Leather wallets are some of the most functional accessories that almost all men own at one point in time, and when you update your simple leather wallet to a luxury men’s wallet, you’re telling the world a lot about you, your tastes, and what it is you value in life.
But if you’re new to the idea of a luxury wallet, here are some of the common questions answered:
What kind of leather do luxury brands use?
The type of leather a brand uses depends entirely on the brand itself and its values as well as where it sources its leather. Most of the time, full-grain leather is used as it’s the highest quality and most durable, but it can be sourced from places such as Italy, Spain, and France to name a few.
How long does leather last?
The quality of the leather and how well you take care of it determines how long your wallet will last, but in general, a leather wallet can last over ten years or more.
How do I maintain my luxury wallet?
These are some common ways to maintain your wallet:
Try not to sit on your leather wallet, not only is this bad for your hips and your nerves, but it can also damage your wallet itself as It causes unnecessary stress on the stitching.
If you ever get your wallet wet, let it sit and dry in a place away from direct sunlight, and consider treating it with a leather conditioner after it’s dry. This will help remove the leather and keep the patina for longer.
Try to keep the wallet away from direct sunlight and away from heat sources so it doesn’t strip the leather of its natural protective qualities.
Treat your leather frequently and keep it clean, this is what will let it age naturally and keep it looking fresher for longer.
How long until the leather wallet is broken in?
Natural leather wallets are always stiff at first, and it’s a good idea to let this happen naturally, but if you’re in a bit more of a hurry, there are some options to speed them up and this includes massaging the leather with your hands or letting it get warm in your pocket for a few minutes until it starts to loosen up.
Which brand is best for men’s luxury wallets?
In our opinion, no one beats Louis Vuitton, especially now that their men’s creative director has more on the market from classic men’s monogram looks to more street-style looks that suit men of every age.
