The wallet is a fascinating object. Much more than a fashion accessory, it is the witness of our way of life.
Even if its primary function is utilitarian, the type of wallet we use reveals our obsessions, our character, our relationship to ourselves and to others. It must be practical and resistant. But its symbolic value is important, and its status aspect is not to be neglected.
Men and women do not give it the same function, and do not use it in the same way.
Thus, men generally look for rather compact, classic and resistant models, to slip into a pocket; wallet pocket of a jacket, or back pocket of trousers.
They prefer ultra-flat and compact models.
A man's wallet should contain one or two credit cards, papers (identity card, driving licence and car registration document) and enough space for a few notes.
Some people also like a zipped or press studded pocket to hold a few coins.
Others prefer to use a small purse that fits in their hand to prevent their small change from finding its way into their trouser pockets.
Women's wallets are more diverse. Depending on our storage habits, our outfits and the size of our bags, we choose different formats and functions.
They are often bulging, full of treasures, they contain our small change, banknotes, credit cards, metro tickets and loyalty cards from our favourite shops. It also contains documents, health cards, prescriptions, etc. for the whole family, and even a cheque book to cover any eventuality.
It is common for us to have several kits or purses to identify the different documents we need; a big size wallet for everyday life, a flat one for the car registration card and driving licence, kits for the pharmacy or make-up case.
The big size one is highly sought after because it allows us to carry all our treasures and to be safe. Its zip running all around reassures; no risk that a paper, a card or a banknote slips away.
At the moment, the fashion for small bags has created the need for new companions, with similar functions but more compact, halfway between a wallet and a companion.
Other women prefer a classic style, with gussets for cards and notes and a real compartment for storing change. In this case, make sure the compartment closes properly and is large enough to hold all the small change.
The old-fashioned wallet with a frame can be particularly suitable for this purpose.
As a witness of our way of life, its aesthetic aspect is not to be neglected. Constantly crushed, abused, taken out several times a day, it is noticeable, it has a patina.
Its intensive use justifies the purchase of a leather wallet, which is generally very resistant.
The feel and look is incomparable to any other material. It also requires a specific and artisanal know-how, which ensures quality and durability.
A well-made piece will resist to this intensive use and rubbing. You will keep it for a long time.
