Advice from Casanova 1948: the definitive guide for a simple choice
The wallet is one of those accessories that, like the mobile phone, we always carry with us. Every man should have a stylish wallet that highlights his personality and style and combines two fundamental elements: functionality and aesthetics. When evaluating the purchase of this accessory, you must carefully determine all the peculiarities that distinguish it so that you get a product that meets your expectations:
- Type of leather
- Number of internal pockets
They are all aspects that you must think about in the initial stages, which is why the choice between the different types of wallets should not be underestimated.
You are probably wondering:

Casanova1948 gives you the possibility of having a leather product custom made by expert craftsmen, Made in Italy, which is personalized to your exact specifications, meticulously considering even the finest details – all of which guarantee a final product beyond comparison.
Although originally wallets were made primarily of leather or cowhide and were only used to hold coins and banknotes, today with the changing habits and types of payment the wallet has evolved as well. New models on the market respond to wide-ranging requests for presentability, aesthetics and practicality. Wallets are now designed in various shapes, types of leather, colors and sizes.
What is the main feature that we have to evaluate?
One of the first fundamental aspects to consider, in addition to design, is the shape and size of the wallet: accurately evaluating the available space and the number of documents and cards that the wallet holds is the first step if you want a product that satisfies your every need and is sure to last over the course of time.
Based on these ideas we are going to choose the ideal wallet type. This choice is obviously subjective but a more simple still design is advisable, equipped with the right number of pockets that can hold all the essentials for you. However, it often happens that you need more space, for example if you travel often. This is why we have some ad hoc solutions including men’s bags and messenger bags – another must from the collections proposed by Casanova1948 –which are able to safely hold more items.
Very often people end up buying items, maybe even from famous brands, that do not meet their needs. Sometimes this is due to insufficient space, other times due to the size or even the leather, the workmanship, or the color ….
Did we get it?
That’s why a wallet in soft leather personalized by Casanova1948 according to your specific needs is the best solution.
So today, with the advent of credit cards and the ability to customize each piece thanks to the new materials on the market, this product can easily satisfy any need and preference.

The second aspect of a wallet that must be established with particular attention is the type of leather. The leather type enhances the design and color, thus representing the most basic element of the wallet from an aesthetic point of view. But that’s not the only importance: it also determines the resistance and durability of the wallet, although over time the leather takes on a slight worn-in look which is considered a pleasing change in color tone. Casanova1948 has always used only top quality leathers, including traditional leathers, such as full-grain and baranil, as well as exotic ones such as crocodile, python, hippopotamus, elephant or shark. From such extensive experience comes a brand capable of recommending the best available products on the market in order to create a soft leather wallet that is unique, made exclusively in Italy by the best Italian craftsmen, highly customized and studied in the finest detail. And most importantly it can be designed to satisfy any stylistic preferences and the most varied needs.
Therefore, carefully evaluating the type of leather is very important: the cow and the calf go together perfectly with the most classic wallet models, and the most popular colors are black and the various shades of brown. But you can choose any color, giving free rein to your creativity. You can even create designs with two or more shades – for example, you may want elegant, classic colors on the outside and original, multicolor and bright colors on the inside, for a unique one-of-a-kind wallet.
