Give your cash a qual­ity place to crash

e pocket mon­ster Fendi Hor­i­zon­tal

Plain leather wal­lets may be as stylish as sharp-suited busi­ness an­a­lysts, but they both get rather tire­some af­ter a while. is Fendi, on the other hand, has a pair of leer­ing mon­ster eyes stitched into the calf­skin, as well as a red leather in­te­rior lin­ing for a more ec­cen­tric style. £290 / fendi.com

e geeky marvel Marvel Comic Out­side Print

Face it, you’re a nerd. No point hid­ing it with classy leather bi-folds – just em­brace your true self with a wal­let that looks as if it’s been wrapped in clas­sic Marvel comics. And since it’s made from syn­thetic ma­te­ri­als rather than leather, buying one will make you an in­stant hero to cows. £14.99 / red5.co.uk

e hide-and-seeker Walli Wear­ables Smart

Your wal­let and smart­phone have a shared hobby: go­ing miss­ing. is Walli smart wal­let has a so­lu­tion. If you leave the wal­let be­hind, it can send a no­ti­fi­ca­tion to your phone via Blue­tooth; and in re­turn, if you lose the phone, the Walli can ac­ti­vate its alarm for easy find­ing. US$89 / my­walli.com

e posh punk Valentino Gar­a­vani Rock­stud

Just like any up­per-class rocker, this Valentino Gar­a­vani bi-fold de­cided to state its in­di­vid­u­al­ism by get­ting a pair of studs. But there’s no hid­ing its pedi­gree with pure leather con­struc­tion and spa­cious room for wads of ban­knotes. Still, we’re sure it’d fit in fine at Down­load Fes­ti­val. £220 / har­rods.com

e thief-snap­per Volter­man

If your ev­ery­day wal­let gets nabbed from your back pocket with­out you notic­ing, there’s not much you can do. Get your Volter­man pinched, though, and its GPS will help you keep track of its progress – while the built-in cam­era will snap the thief who’s counting your notes. US$145 / volter­man.com

e trouser snake Aspinal of Lon­don Snake­skin

ere’s some­thing sin­is­ter about this wal­let. Per­haps it’s the red and black colour combo, or maybe it’s that snake­skin in­te­rior. It may make or­di­nary cit­i­zens shiver, but for wannabe su­per-vil­lains it’s per­fect – es­pe­cially with the £15 op­tional ex­tra of golden etched ini­tials. £135 / as­pinaloflon­don.com

e se­cret gamer Zelda: Golden Hylian Crest

e best nerd merch is al­ways sub­tle. Why? Be­cause you need to trick your av­er­age life-goer into think­ing your wal­let just has an in­no­cent zany pat­tern, so they don’t pelt you with Ru­bik’s Cubes, while still draw­ing ap­prov­ing nods from fel­low geeks. en you can smile know­ing you’re not alone. £19.99 / mer­choid.com

e se­cret smarty Woo­let Clas­sic 2.0

ree smart wal­lets in, and you’re prob­a­bly no longer wowed by track­able cash-hold­ers. But the Woo­let Clas­sic 2.0 caught our eye be­cause it doesn’t look like the oth­ers with their oh-so-mod­ern styling. Crafted from Ital­ian leather, it looks like it walked straight out of a Wild West sa­loon. £98 / woo­let.co

e glo­be­trot­ter Bell­roy Travel Wal­let – De­sign­ers Edi­tion

Bell­roy scoffs at wal­lets that only carry cash and cards. Am­a­teurs! is pre­mium wal­let is de­signed to hold all of your travel essentials, with space for your pass­port, SIM card and the in­cluded mini travel pen. De­spite all this bag­gage, it’ll still fit snugly in your pocket. Just don’t think that means you can cram in your socks and un­der­wear too. Trust us, we tried. £200 / bell­roy.com
