If you’ve got a stylish guy on your Christmas list this year (or if you’re building out your own style wish list), it’s hard to go wrong with something as covetable and, well, stylish as one of the best men’s leather watches. That goes for just about anything you’re apt to find at Detroit-based Shinola, which just so happens to be stocking plenty of the best leather gifts for men this season. It’s an impressive assortment, and one that includes the Shinola Pocket Bifold, a handsome and refined leather wallet made for the modern man. And if the gentleman on your list happens to be in need of a new leather wallet, well, that’s really all the better. Yes indeed, the time is right now to upgrade his everyday carry and perhaps, to add a few covetable items from Shinola to your own list. After all, Shinola does so much more than just craft some of the best watches for men. They also happen to make one of the best men’s weekender bags and a throwback-inspired dress watch that any guy would be very happy to find under tree this season. But back to the Shinola Pocket Bifold — it’s an easy choice as far as a seriously upgraded leather wallet is concerned.
The Shinola Pocket Bifold isn’t any old wallet you might find made from cheap materials — far from it, in fact. It’s worth every bit of its $250 price tag, a true marker of quality and not just of a brand name. And the specs on the Shinola Pocket Bifold? I’m glad you asked, friends. It’s made from smooth, rich Vachetta leather, the kind that gets better with age the more you use it (and trust me, he’ll want to use the Shinola Pocket Bifold every single day). It’s neither too bulky nor too flimsy, made with six lined card pockets and an unlined bill pocket, plus a handy receipt pocket. It’s small touches like those that set the Shinola Pocket Bifold apart from others you can buy this season, make no mistake about that.
And it’s all the better to pick up one of the best wallets for men if the stylish guy in your life is already familiar with the esteemed maker of some of the best watches for men. It’s also stamped with the Shinola logo and sewn in the U.S.A. — again, the Shinola Pocket Bifold lives up to the brand’s reputation in every way you’d expect. If the guy in your life expects the best (which I’m sure he does), then the Shinola Pocket Bifold is one way to deliver that, right down to his accessories. Happy holidays, folks!
