The name speaks for itself – a chain wallet features a chain that connects a pocketbook with a belt. If you think that such a construction is there for fashion reasons, you can’t be more right. Indeed, a massive chain hanging from a biker’s hip looks imposing. However, a duet of a wallet and a chain also carries at utilitarian function – it guards your billfold and keeps it from stealing or loss.

If you decided to add this accessory to the to-buy list, these tips will help you to choose the spot-on option.

1) Buy separately.

Some models go with a chain by default but in most cases, this chain won’t blow your mind. Our advice is to purchase a wallet featuring a loop and then complement it with a chain. By doing so, you’ll be able to pick two eye-catching items. You can also grab a few chains and interchange them whenever you want. Buying separately might be more expensive but it’s totally worth it style-wise.

2) Say ‘No’ to Faux Leather

Some wallets rock a cheap price tag but as they say, if you buy cheaply, you pay dearly. Chain wallets are designed to be worn in a pocket, but how will your inexpensive wallet look if you shove it into your pocket and pull it out all the time? Yeah, it will look awful in a month. I love animals too and it hurts to think that somebody has to die so that I can get a decent wallet, but that’s life. If you are against natural leather then pocketbooks are probably not for you. Unfortunately, artificial materials don’t hold a candle to quality-made leather in terms of durability.

3) If Money Permits, Purchase Exotic Leather

Not all leathers are equal. While cowhide is the most widespread option, it is less durable than exotic skins. Stingray, lizard, shark, snake, crocodile, and alligator leathers are much sturdier and, let’s be frank, prettier than cow leather. However, if you are in need of a super durable item to be your one and only wallet, there is no better option than stingray. Its pebble-like finishing is not only fancy but also the second to none when it comes to durability.

4) Opt for Biker Style

By far and large, bikers invented chain wallets because they needed a solution to secure their wallets in pockets while they were riding. As any other biker accessory, their billfolds acquired recognizable features – masculine design, outstanding resilience, and, of course, biker symbolism. A biker chain wallet often boasts eye-catching designs including flames, ghosts, skulls, skeletons, wheels, etc. If you too want to stand out, a biker wallet will be right up your street.

5) Brand is not Important

Well, if you have a few hundred dollars in your pocket, you can afford a nicely-done branded cowhide wallet. However, if a brand is not the main argument, you can have much more for the same price. The Internet teems with wallet manufacturers from Asian countries but this fact shouldn’t scare you away. On the contrary, it is a pledge that a wallet is top-notch since most exotic skins are obtained in Asia (in Thailand, for instance). Examine the feedback and check if there is money-back guarantee and if everything is fine, you can get your hands on a grand exotic leather wallet at a fraction of the cost of a branded item.
