Your wallet is the most important thing you carry with you (aside from your phone, and an air of quiet confidence, amiright?). It’s got your cash, your credit cards, your ID, your metro card, your precious loyalty card from your favorite coffee shop—but just because it’s home to all of your most important financial ephemera, doesn’t mean it needs to be bulky.
The dreaded wallet bump in the back pocket of your pants is not attractive, and worse, it can actually wear its own outline into your jeans over time. Trust us—you don’t want any part of that. And as we’re moving towards the ability to pay for things with your phone, you don’t need a massive wallet that can accommodate a huge wad of cash or a dozen credit cards. It’s time to slim down, my friend – and we can help. Check out our picks for the 25 best slim wallets out there.
