Factors to Consider Before Buying a Breast Pocket Wallet
With the barrage of styles and models that have littered the market, selecting the ideal breast pocket wallet can have you engulfed in a wave of confusion. So, to help you make a worthy investment, we’ve rounded up a few essential tips.
To find the right wallet size, begin by establishing your needs which entails making an inventory of all the items you want to carry around daily. Then, revisit your list and rid your wallet of the items you don’t need to carry daily, like gift cards and a few credit/debit cards. This will help you remain with the most important items, and thus, you can find the right-sized wallet to accommodate them.
The aesthetics of the breast pocket wallet you settle for tell a lot about you. So, select one that personifies the inner you by considering its shape, size, artwork, and colour. For instance, if you’re on the conservative end of the spectrum, then you may want to choose a classic brown or black option. However, if you’re adventurous, then a vibrantly-coloured blue wallet may be more your style.
Breast pocket wallets vary a great deal in price, so put a cap on the maximum amount of cash you’re willing to spend. But remember, while you can find a wallet for a few pounds or dollars, you should expect to significantly more for an excellent quality product.
If you’re looking for a wallet that’ll stick by you for the next 3-5 years or even more, then you’ll need to fork out a few hundred. Topnotch products from reputable brands use premium quality materials such as Malvern, Saffiano, or Richmond leather that will unarguably give you years of service. And, as a bonus, they show off your social status and fashion sense.
When it comes to functionality, choose a breast pocket wallet that has an array of compartments. They’ll hold travel tickets, currencies, cards, and other essentials that you’d like to carry while you’re out and about. So, aim for a model that has at least four card pockets and a couple of other slots for smaller items like receipts and SIM cards.
The Bottom Line
While the conventional bi-fold wallets have been the go-to for a multitude of people, times have changed. Breast pocket or long wallets are becoming increasingly popular because of their uncanny ability to hold an abundance of valuables without looking and feeling bulky.
Fitting perfectly in your pocket without causing any wonky-looking outfits or awkward bulges makes them great travel companions. So, infuse a flair of luxury to your everyday life, with any of our stunning breast pocket wallets.
