The men’s wallets space is getting really crowded. Now, more than ever, it’s essential to have all the information to make the best decision on what is worthy of your much-prized pocket real estate. In this article, we highlight the advantages of having a cork wallet, and why it’s the best wallet you’ll ever have.


Cork wallets can adapt to your growing needs.


Most things in life require adaptability.  But really, no one wants to have to adapt itself to a new purchase, and this applies to wallets too. Everyone much prefers it the other way around. You want your buys to adapt as best as possible to your needs, particularities and specific lifestyle. And that’s when having a wallet that can adapt to your growing needs comes in really handy. Thanks to the elasticity of cork, that’s exactly the case with a cork front pocket wallet: there’s always room for a little extra something. Being elastic, cork will adapt and adjust to whatever you throw in. Of course, you can’t place 20 cards on a wallet intended for 10, but if for some reason you need to transport more, you have some leeway. Cork will just stretch and then bounce back. The reason? Cork's cellular membranes are filled with a gas mixture that gives it the ability to be compressed and, just instants later, recover its initial shape and volume. It can even withstand temperature and pressure variations without suffering alterations. It's the only known solid that, when compressed on one side, does not increase in volume on the other—it’s awesome, we know. 


Cork wallets are for carrying the way carrying was intended to be.

Lightweight and slim, that’s what we mean! With the minimalist trend dominating our wallets, the emphasis is not only in minimizing on contents but also on bulk and weight. Reducing both the volume and heaviness of your wallet is a walk in the park when you choose the right materials. Cork is known for its extreme lightness (it will float in water) and will help you feel as though you’re not carrying anything in your pocket.

 


Cork wallets wear hard against the elements.

Again, cork has much to offer when it comes to resisting the elements. Cork wallets are prepared to withstand the toughest weather conditions: for starters, it’s water-resistant, which means you can take it out in the rain with no fear of it being ruined (well, maybe some fear for the cards inside). Unlike leather, it won’t develop smells or fungus over time. Again, cork doesn’t absorb dust, therefore avoiding the appearance of mites and other less than desirable features.

 


Cork front pocket wallets fit seamlessly in your front pocket. 

Again elasticity is important in ensuring a comfortable carry. Being supple and flexible, it won’t be a stiff and unmoving piece sitting in your pocket and brushing against your skin. Also, the tapered edges add an extra layer of comfort to it, making it that much more comfortable to carry in your pocket for extended periods of time. At the end of the day, your cork wallet will fit just as comfortably in your front pocket, as it would in your back pocket. 


Cork wallets are perfect when you need or want a super-slim profile.

Cork leather sheets have a maximum thickness of no more than a few millimeters. This helps to keep their profile super slim and is especially true when talking of front pocket wallets which have a lot less fabric than their fuller counterparts. In our range of cork pocket wallets, the thickness varies between just 0.2 and 0.4 inches. In our more complex designs, the thickness varies between 0.4 and 0.6 inches. All in all, you will have a super-thin profile taking up very little pocket space.
