With today’s fashion trends changing by the minute and so much emphasis being put on our appearance, society can be seen to be based on ‘wants’ rather than needs!
Does this also apply to all sectors of our society you may be wondering? Or maybe you might be thinking whether functional items come under the banner of a fashion accessory? And if so, do you need to buy more than one functional item?
So let’s take a look below at the brief answer as to whether you should be buying or already own more than one wallet.
Should I have more than one wallet? You may need more than one wallet for a few reasons. Firstly, purely as a fashion accessory to coordinate with your wardrobe. Or you may also require different styles or colors of wallets dependent on the activities you are involved in. For instance, at the office, outdoor activities or traveling.
Now we’ve looked at the short answer, let’s look a little more closely into why you may need more than one wallet. Let’s begin by looking at men’s fashion and why men are purchasing more than ever before.
Are men interested in fashion?
Previously, clothes and accessory shopping was an area dominated by the female demographic of the population. Women historically have had great expectations placed upon them to spend a large portion of their monthly salary on fashion items.
There has been much emphasis placed on women to match items such as bags and purses with their clothing. As the women’s fashion industry is worth billions of dollars, it’s easy to see why this portion of society feels obliged to keep up with the latest trends.
However, fashion for men is catching up in leaps and bounds in terms of how men see themselves related to the industry.
According to a survey by Boutique, a full 94 percent of men surveyed said they had a ‘defined’ sense of style.
Men see themselves as portraying an image more than ever before, so it stands to reason that many items, including functional ones such as bags, belts, and wallets are on the radar of the male population in terms of multiple purchases.

So, now we’ve seen that men are indeed an important part of the fashion industry and want to look stylish, including buying many functional items such as wallets and other accessories, let’s look at how the situation may have been previously.
‘I’ll just use one wallet until it falls apart.’
Before the fashion industry began to be more important to men, the above quote was most likely on the lips of many men across the globe.
Historically men were not as interested in keeping up with trends, so they may have just one wallet, used it until it disintegrated and then went on to purchase one in exactly the same color and style. Does this sound familiar?
For many men, matching their functional items such as belts and wallets was deemed excessive and unnecessary. It could also be deemed too time-consuming and difficult to manage to own multiple wallets.
This may have been in a time where the majority of men worked in trades or offices and most likely did not have the disposable income we’re lucky enough to have today.
With the rise of the millennials and other factors, men often have more flexible lifestyles. This leaves more freedom for enjoying extended and more frequent leisure pursuits, and other ways of working and living, where it’s more useful to buy quality wallets of different styles and materials which match more closely with everyday activities.
