Just like clothes, wallets can have a huge impact on your wardrobe and it should be an extension of your personality.
First, let's talk a bit about wallet history. It was first introduced after paper money became popular in the US in 1690. The first wallet was introduced by the Massachusetts Bay Company. The pocket-sized wallet that we know today became popular in the 1950's.
1. Open pore leather. You want to look for a leather that is not pigment coated or at least minimally. You want an open pore structure because that enables the leather to develop a patina and over time, it will just age better.
2. Divider. Majority of wallets has a single liner that is made out of a cheap fabric material, it gives a cheap sound and it will wear out very quickly.
3. Edges. Most wallets have edges that are simply folded once then cut on the inside and left like that. While this wallet is functional, you'll collect dirt around the edge and the edge may fray. Both of which make it look old. A much better way to construct the edges is to use a double folded edge, you can see the outer shell is folded and so is the inside liner.
4. An alternative way to finish the edge on a wallet is to edge paint it. To do that, you use a Filiteuse which is a small tool that is hot and you'll add wax and paint to seal and finish off the edge so it doesn't fray and wear easily.
5. Card slots. If you go with nicely made compartments made of leather that are folded and sewn individually, you end up with a much stronger wallet and you'll be able to use it for years to come.
6. Corners of the wallet. The pointier they are, the more likely they are to catch something in your pocket and they come out less easily. Therefore, you always want a wallet that has nicely rounded edges so you don't pull any threads in your clothing and you can easily take it in and out of your pocket.
7. Details and contrast stitching. Usually shows you that somebody put thought into the product.
8. If you have an alligator leather wallet, chances are, the overall workmanship is much higher becaue the leather cost would be much higher.
9. Not to have any plastic. Most wallets feature some form of plastic whether it's the liner, or some case, usually it ages prematurely and it just looks cheap.
10. Initials can be very popular on a wallet and while they're not necessarily a quality hallmark, you should look for something that is just plain embossed without gold and solver foil because that will stand the test of time.
TYPES OF WALLETS
1. Wallets with a coin purse. If you carry coins, simply put them in the coin pocket of your pants and you will have a much slimmer wallet in your chest which gives it a nice silhouette.
2. Billfold. It's called that way because the bills in there are folded and it usually has about 6-8 card slots, sometimes, even more, and it folds a single time.
3. Minimalist wallets. These are meant to be much thinner and usually you can only put about 4-5 cards on them and maybe some cash but otherwise, they won't take anymore.
4. Coat wallet which is longer so that bills don't have to be folded.
5. Smartphone holders with card slots. While it's convenient to have everything in one place, the problem can be that it simply gets too thick in your pocket.
6. Old cigarette holders or business card cases. They're big enough to hold credit cards or check cards and your ID as well as some cash.
In terms of color, I suggest you start with something like black or brown however, those are very boring colors and everybody has them so try to get something with a contrasting inside. If you don't like that, you can also look at different colors. Personally, I like burgundy or cordovan or dark chocolate brown. Of course, if you really want to be extrovert, you can go with green, orange, or red.

Mr Swen, I'm glad you noted that some people use cigarette holders instead of wallet (9:00) and I must tell you that has a great advantage. New payment cards come with a severe security flaw, because of their RFID chips. The only way to prevent it is to block unauthorized contactless transactions in the bank's system and to encase them in metal, to prevent skimming.
Some modern wallets (like those made by Zippo) come with metal case, which serve as anti-skimming protection.
I am researching the billfold wallet simply because Jean Louise Finch takes two dollars out of one in Go Set a Watchman. Personally, I have always owned very cheap quality wallets bursting at the seams and verging on falling apart. They make my hip look horrible because they bulge so much out of my pocket. Maybe I should change that.
While I'm looking for a new wallet, just for a looks upgrade, my current 20 dollar Walmart sandalwood leather one is holding up nicely after 10 years. The only thing in the video I can seem to agree with is that the main plastic ID slot is starting to yellow a bit. But all the seams are holding up nicely. The slots are folded in and I guess glued down, none are catching cards. It has aged quite well with only a few wrinkles on the spine.
Raphael, when you add about another 30 years to your age and start carrying Medicare and six other health plan cards along with your other wallet paraphernalia, you'll need a heavy duty pocket luggage-style wallet with a leather strap to keep it all in place. My wallet resembles a leather filing cabinet but it fits just fine in the right hand pocket of my 5.11 tactical cargo pants. That's why I have to wear those pants. I'd hate to have an alligator wallet that costs more than I can afford to put into it.
Just my opinion, Dude grow out the top of your hair a bit. The way it is it's a bit too chump/nerd lookalike.... Just keep it medium and make it look like it has volume.... Doing this would look good on you. BTW the look you have it's still suits you but try that
PLEASE LOSE THE DRUMS, it adds nothing and makes the voice indistinct for older guys with certain hearing issues. You speak well, the content is quality so why add something which has the potential to annoy.
I can't understand why most of today's wallets have the card holder openings along with the bill holder opening. If the pocket gets loose, your cards fall out. Back ten years ago, most have the card holders open towards the crease, so even if it gets loose, the card won't get out.
I think it's a good idea to explore what's in your wallet regularly. In the evening when I put away the day's clothes, I will empty the wallet, then put away the receipts, and put back in only those items I will need for the next few days- for weekdays I need a gas card, credit card for lunch, and a lilttle cash for impulse purchases. For a trip or a vacations I need different things.
I had a really good black leather wallet....My grandfather gifted it to me back in my childhood (it wasnt even expensive, in russia these things costed around 5$ in today's money), since then it lasted me flawlessly for exactly 32 years, and yesterday i forgot it on the plane (All my money fortunately was in my backpack since i was afraid of someone stealing it)....Man i'm really sad, looking for a good wallet now.....
Question, I am in the market for a new wallet. There seems to be a trend where wallets have now become multitools and now not only hold cards and cash, but also have solar chargers, phone chargers, SD card pockets, and even a can opener and mini saw.
One aspect, in fact the only aspect I have been interested in outside of normal wallet function, is RFID protection. Is there a quality wallet like the ones featured in this video which carry that feature?
Why only vertical Wallets? you said nothing about horizontal wallets.
in my mind horizontal wallets are better because they have more space and are more secure cz no one sees how much money you have down there
A trigger is a named PL/SQL unit that is stored in the database and executed ( fired ) in response to a specified event that occurs in the database.
Overview of Triggers.
A trigger is a named program unit that is stored in the database and fired (executed) in response to a specified event. The specified event is associated with either a table, a view, a schema, or the database, and it is one of the following:
A database manipulation (DML) statement ( DELETE , INSERT , or UPDATE )
A database definition (DDL) statement ( CREATE , ALTER , or DROP )
A database operation ( SERVERERROR , LOGON , LOGOFF , STARTUP , or SHUTDOWN )
The trigger is said to be defined on the table, view, schema, or database.
A DML trigger is fired by a DML statement, a DDL trigger is fired by a DDL statement, a DELETE trigger is fired by a DELETE statement, and so on.
An INSTEAD OF trigger is a DML trigger that is defined on a view (not a table). The database fires the INSTEAD OF trigger instead of executing the triggering DML statement. For more information, see Modifying Complex Views (INSTEAD OF Triggers).
A system trigger is defined on a schema or the database. A trigger defined on a schema fires for each event associated with the owner of the schema (the current user). A trigger defined on a database fires for each event associated with all users.
A simple trigger can fire at exactly one of the following timing points :
Before the triggering statement executes.
After the triggering statement executes.
Before each row that the triggering statement affects.
After each row that the triggering statement affects.
A compound trigger can fire at more than one timing point. Compound triggers make it easier to program an approach where you want the actions you implement for the various timing points to share common data. For more information, see Compound Triggers.
