My name is Ben Olsen and I’m the person behind topminimalistwallets.com.

I’m a huge fan of minimalist wallets. I was probably one of the first men to buy a minimalist wallet when they suddenly appeared in the USA.

Before they arrived in the USA minimalist wallets had a long journey and I have followed it every step of the way. Basically, I’m changing my wallets every 2-3 months, so you can call me a walletaholic. 🙂



My story

Approximately 10 years ago I was at a home party when I realized that people were staring at my lap. After a while, a friend of mine informed me that my wallet looked strange and everybody thought I had an issue downstairs…
It was then that I decided I needed to find a smaller wallet. I didn’t know about minimalist wallets, but I discovered them very quickly and I knew they would be part of my life!

In my opinion, wallets can show some personality traits of the owner, so it is a very important part of your style. I truly think minimalist wallets are a great discovery of the modern fashion world and I hope they will be trendy for a long time!

I have a very precise checklist before I buy a minimalist wallet. It is quite complex, but basically, it contains 4 main conditions. They need to be comfortable in my pocket, their material has to be excellent, they have to have enough pockets for my credit cards, and lastly, they have to be wonderful.

There are quite different types of minimalist wallets: plastic, money clippers, leather, RFID, very slim, metal, elastic, etc. I have experience with all of them and I can assure you that you can find your favorite one if you check my wallet reviews and comparison articles.

Most of the wallets on the website are tested by me or one of my friends and we have plenty of experience with these particular wallets.

I hope you’ll like my reviews and tips on buying minimalist wallets. If you need any help or advice, or you have a comment, don’t hesitate to contact me.
