The Minimal Zip Wallet

 

Zach zipper wallet,
$70 at Club Monaco

Thick billfold wallets can be a hassle in the summer. Sometimes you need a little extra space in your pocket for essentials like lip balm, keys or a packable pair of shades. These half-zip wallets from Club Monaco combine the storage capabilities of a billfold with a slimmer silhouette and a half-zip closure reminiscent of a certain cult Japanese brand. Thankfully, these wallets aren't calling for high designer prices, but they are still made from quality materials like pebbled leather and a hardy twill lining. The of-the-moment cobalt blue version even comes with a D-ring to stick it on a keyhook, so you can stash your keys inside. The lean shape keeps cards and cash organized, while ensuring it doesn't take up too much pocket space. It's also the kind of wallet you can use while wearing a suit—nothing ruins the clean lines of tailored trousers quite like a bulging billfold in your back pocket.
