Minimalist Wallets For On-The-Go Men & Women
Why are so many men and women on the go choosing minimalist wallets? Here's what the contemporary wallet design experts at America's Big Skinny have to say:
Chunky wallets will weigh you down
Old-fashioned wallets that look like bricks and can weigh almost as much have no place in today's fast-paced world. On-the-go women and men prefer ultra-thin, lightweight wallets that will hold cash, cards, IDs and change without the extra weight of a thick, heavy wallet. Wallets by Big Skinny are made with a high-tech nylon microfiber material that's almost weightless and only one-eighth of an inch thick or thinner. Even the American company's leather hybrid wallets weigh less than half that of traditional leather wallets. So junk those chunky wallets.
Minimalist wallets are safer
Whether you're on the go in town or during travel, a thick, brick of a wallet is a neon welcome sign to pickpockets. A chunky wallet that creates a big bulge in your back pocket is an easy target. It's almost as easy to reach inside a woman's handbag and feel for that big wallet, snatch it and run. Minimalist wallets can be tucked into front pants pockets or shirt pockets without that telltale brick look. Minimalist wallets can be zipped inside a woman's purse pocket to avoid snatch-and-grab thieves. It's not just the immediate loss of money when you don't carry a minimalist wallet; it's also the price tag in time spent reporting and replacing ID cards and credit cards.
Prevent identity theft
Identity theft is a contemporary crime that can wreck your credit and take years to fix. Minimalist wallets make it harder for thieves to snatch your ID cards and credit cards. Big Skinny super-thin wallets are available with RFID technology to also prevent thieves from scanning your card information while the card is inside your wallet.
Bulging wallets can ruin the look of an expensive suit, and pulling a brick of a wallet from a designer handbag doesn't make much of an impression, either. Sleek and contemporary minimalist wallets are a bargain, too, for those on a budget. Big Skinny minimalist wallets are less expensive than other wallets, even with lots more features.
