Nothing takes more of a beating than a man's wallet. Stuffed in and out of your pocket, sat on all day, and subjected to abuse constantly. Does yours end up looking like this after only a couple of years? If so a Hanks Wallet may be a good fit for you. Below are some features to avoid for the longest life.
Nylon Giving Way and Cracked ID Window in Imported Wallet
No Nylon Linings
Most imported department store wallets are Nylon lined. Though this makes things nice and pretty and feels good to the touch, that Nylon will rip and tear rendering the wallet cumbersome to use after a couple of years. Hanks wallets don't have any linings to wear out. There are also no bill dividers as again this is another failure point. Just the rugged Goatskin we make our wallets out of so ours will last decades and not just a few years.

Avoid ID Windows
For the longest life choose our wallets without ID windows. We do make some with ID windows due to repeated requests for this feature but the plastic portion is only guaranteed for 5 years. There just isn't a plastic window that won't crack eventually.
No processed leather
Imported wallets are generally made from processed leather scraps and marked Genuine Leather. It is actually ground up leather scraps mixed and poured into molds to make sheets of leather. The texture is then stamped on it. This type of leather just won't last as long as Full Grain leather hides.
A Hanks Wallet is USA made from Rugged Full-Grain Goatskin. Ounce per ounce Goatskin is more rugged than cowhide so this allows for a thinner product with the same strength. Goatskin also withstands moisture much much better than cowhide and stays soft and supple if it gets wet. A wallet is handled a lot so Goatskin is superior to cowhide for this application.

Never imported...always USA Made
Lastly, you just can't beat USA Made. All Hanks Wallets and Belts are made right here in America. Handmade our wallets take time to build and of course is more money. Rest assured though, every time you pull your Hanks Wallet out of your pocket you will get to enjoy the sight and feel of true American craftsmanship that just gets harder and harder to find.

MEASURE A BELT YOU ARE CURRENTLY WEARING
This is super easy to do, only takes a few minutes, and virtually guarantees a perfect fit. Just follow the below instructions and make sure the belt you measure fits you well the way you will be using it with any gear attached.
Lay out your belt on a smooth flat surface. It is probably slightly curved but don't worry about that. Just measure through the curve.
Place a tape measure where the buckle meets the leather (do not include buckle length in measurement) and measure, in inches, to the hole you currently use to buckle your belt:
Scroll down to the description on the page and click on the tab that says "Additional
Sizing Help" (on mobile phones scroll down under the description, and you will see the
Now scroll down to the belt sizing chart and match the measurement you got above with the number in the "Measurement to the 4th Hole" column in the chart.
If you are between measurements, size up one unless you plan on losing weight in which case you should size down one.
For example, if you measured 37" to the hole you currently use you should purchase a 38" belt size. If you measured 38" you should purchase a 40" belt size.
Note that our belts are made by hand and variances in measurements can occur. Variances are slight, though, and will not affect the sizing.
That's it! Select your size, double check it is correct on the add to cart button, and add to cart.
And just to be safe, Hanks Belts offers free exchanges if needed, so you never have to worry about additional cost if you do order an incorrect size.
