The Top 7 Men’s Money Clip Wallets for 2020 and Beyond
Money clips are a clever and functional part of many wallets today. Over the years many wallet manufacturers have innovated in the ways they incorporate money clips into their wallet and the huge range of choice out there can be quite daunting. And then theirs the issue of faulty or simply bad money clips.
Over the years I’ve reviewed hundreds of wallets and one of the main issues I’ve had with money clips is down to the fact they just don’t work very well. For example, the clip becomes loose and your cash falls out. In one comical instance, the entire clip came away from the leather rendering the wallet basically useless.
(Quick note: Be careful when looking for other posts on people’s opinions on the best money clip wallets. These articles/blogs generally don’t know what they’re talking about and usually trying to get you to click affiliate links to profit from you. We’re impartial here and always review and use each wallet expensively before we give our honest opinion. No tomfoolery here No affiliate links are used in this article).
The money clip wallets I’ve reviewed here are my top 7 and have been tried and tested in practice over a period of 6 months. In turn, I’ll explain my reasons for choosing each of these wallets, the pros and cons and my final verdict in whether or not this wallet is right for you. Let’s get started.
1. The Andar Pilot Wallet
The Andar Pilot is a combination of attractive design, great functionality and a reasonable price tag to match. What stands out about this wallet isn’t the money clip but the wheel spring-loaded mechanism which enables you to simply and easily get access to your cards with a push of a button. Along with this the wallet also has a very sturdy money clip producing on the back.
- One Card Slot (access cards by rotating The Wheel)
- Holds 1–6 Cards
- Full Grain Oil Waxed Leather
- Anodized Aluminum Case | Matte Black Finish
- RFID Protected
- Measures 4 17/32” x 2 ½” x 17/32”
- Two Unique Designs | Money Clip & Minimal
The Andar Pilot comes in at $65 which is by no means cheap. Nevertheless, the wallet is perfect for those looking for easy access to your cards while retaining the feature of a money clip. For more information on the Andar Pilot Wallet check out their website here.
2. The Wallum M1 Wallet
What stands out about the Wallum M1 wallet is it’s incredibly innovative and attractive design. Made from 2 plates of stainless steel banded together with (you guessed it) rubber bands, this wallet is a minimalist wallet at its core. The money clip on the back is probably the best I’ve seen on here. It’s sturdy as its physically welded to the back of the wallet.
- RFID Blocking Slim Wallet
- Money Clip for Bank Note
- Can Hold up to 12 Cards
- Product Size: 88*57*12mm
- Designed and Made in Austria
Coming in at around $60 the Wallum is a good price for what you get. The design might not be for everybody but if you’re looking for something a little different this wallet might be for you. For more information on the Wallum and their range check out their website here.
3. The Goods Villainaire Leather Wallet
What stands out about the goods wallet is it’s material and build quality. The leather is top quality vegetable tanned cowhide leather and with its unique snakeskin design, the wallet screams uniqueness. The front slots hold up to a preferred maximum of 4 cards, while the money clip on the back secures your bills. The money clip on this wallet is one of the longest of my top 5 which is definitely beneficial to better secure your cash.
‘Like the bad boy that everyone has a crush on back in school, The Villainaire makes you look badass without breaking some hearts’ – A cringy quote from The Goods website.
The only issue I have with the Villainaire wallet is the price. Coming in at $80 this wallet is the most expensive on this list. Nevertheless, the wallets are definitely one which would last you a lifetime thanks to its premium build quality and material.

4. The Ridge Wallet
The Ridge wallet was one of the reasons why I originally fell in love with minimalist wallets. The ridge wallet uses an elasticated band for its money clip and it works a treat. Its design is also incredible made from stainless steel with beautifully crafted accents to add to its charm.
- Holds 1-12 cards without stretching out
- Blocks RFID (wireless theft)
- Replaceable elastic
- Backed by our lifetime warranty
- Free returns within 45 days
- 3k carbon fiber weave | matte finish
- Weight: 1.6 oz | 86 x 54 x 6 mm
Like most wallets, the design isn’t for everyone. With this wallet, you’re getting a more industrial look. Although with that being said the range of colors this wallet is available in can change the wallet’s entire appearance.
With wallets starting from $75 this wallet is another high-end wallet. But the wallet works well and with its attractive design and innovative money clip, I’m confident this could be the wallet for you.

5. The Edwin Wallet
The Edwin wallet stands out as it’s an innovative take on the money clip design is genius and works amazingly. Remember those crocodile clips you used to get in school? Well, Edwin’s idea was to incorporate a similar design in the way the money clip works. In my opinion, out of all these wallets, Edwin is the only one who smashes it out of the park when it comes to the clip.
‘No hardware, no bands, no textiles. The Edwin wallet is built from a single piece of metal. One size truly fits all; the binder clip style backbone is perfectly capable of holding a single card (the extreme minimalist) or up to 10 cards (the striving minimalist). Opposite the binder clip side of the wallet, is a quick draw, a single card slot for your most used card; no more holding up the checkout line’.
Along with this, the wallet is incredibly slim and has a unique and attractive design (although it might not be for everyone’s tastes). The wallet is also priced on the lower end of the spectrum coming in at $32.95. But be quick, the Edwin wallet is commonly out of stock.

6. The Alto Collection
What I loved about the Alto collect of wallets (the entire range is good) is their simplicity but also their use of materials. All these wallets are made from wood. I included this range of wallets as something a little different from the traditional. Wooden wallets are all about what they look like and are limited by their material when it comes to their functionality and what they can do.
The Alto wallets are no exception from this rule but with attractive materials and money, clips included the Alto are great wallets for those who what a unique wallet and design. With prices starting at $28 the Alto collection are the cheapest wallets on our list. For more information visit their website by clicking here.
7. The I-Clip Wallet
The final wallet I’d like to mention is the I-Clip. It seems suitable to mention this wallet as the entire purpose of this article is to talk about money clip wallets and this literally has it in its name.
The I-Clip is almost like a small case. Once opened you have a range of options for storing your cash and cards with a money clip accessible from the inside of the casing. Made from a combination of metal and leather the I-Clip is truely an innovative take on the wallet. It’s by no means the smallest on this list but coming in at around $55 it’s a great price for those looking for a great compromise between size and functionality.
