Usually, when you read the word “accessories” on a blog like this one, it’s shorthand for watches, rings and other assorted baubles. So we thought we’d take a moment to recognize the king horse of accessories: the leather wallet.

It’s everything we’re looking for in an item: utilitarian, indestructible and more handsome with every year. This Moore & Giles tri-fold is a prime example, handsome as much for those hairline wrinkles as for the wax-treated leather. Hold onto it for a few decades and it’ll look even better.

It’s a good rule for anything you own, especially anything that happens to be made out of leather, metal or denim. If more gentlemen started treating their shoes like their wallets, we’d be living in a much more stylish world.
