Shopping for Father’s Day? You Can’t Go Wrong With Any of These Classic Leather Wallets

·5 min read

Every year come Father’s Day, the eternal question remains: What to get Dad? Sure there are plenty of inventive ideas, but you can’t ever go wrong with wallets for men. You could consider plant subscriptions or pizza ovens, but there’s something to be said for the always-reliable card case gift.

The wallet’s enduring popularity as a Father’s Day gift lies in the simple fact it’s the kind of thing our dads just don’t buy for themselves. (We’ve all spotted our dads carrying around a worn-out, natty wallet that he probably purchased over a decade ago.) And these days, beyond all the classic options in black and brown scotch grains and croc-effect leathers, there’s a whole world of more playful styles in bold colors and patterns too that are perfect for the kind of dad who likes to make a style statement.

Still, a well-made, quality wallet doesn’t just have to be for Father’s Day—or, indeed, for men only, as plenty of these styles offer the same style and practicality for women too. Here, find Vogue’s pick of the best wallets for men to gift this Father’s Day, and far beyond.
