Since the beginning of men’s fashion, chain wallets have made its way into the lives of men. The idea of wallet chains originated from bikers even before they became popular with punk rockers in the 1970’s. The use of chains became ideal when bikers wanted a way to keep their wallets from falling out of their pockets while they are cruising or racing on their motorcycles. Just like any other product available to the people in the U.S, a wallet that consists of a security chain is a necessity.
Leather biker chain wallets became popular amongst punk rockers and grunge enthusiasts during the 1970’s and 1980’s. The most featured type was the black leather with a heavy gauge chain. Heavy metal enthusiasts found that the tough look of such wallets played an essential role in their appearance. Biker wallets are not only for appearances sake, but the usefulness of a chain wallet is the one major contributor its popularity and success.
The latest development is the trucker wallet which consists of a wallet chain for security. It is a great twist to an existing product, these trucker wallets are created with more pockets to easily store receipts and other paper slips that a trucker may need to keep throughout the day. By owning a chain wallet, truckers no longer have to fret about losing their wallet during their everyday workload and they do not have to think about easily being a victim to preying pick pockets during the night. Truckers do not have to run back and forth to their truck for a forgotten piece of paper or card because there is enough storage available to carry and organize all their essentials. Because of the design of increased storage, these wallets are much larger in size compared to ordinary wallets. If you are not comfortable with larger sized wallets, this may not be the style for you. You would probably be better of purchasing a traditional or smaller sized version that may or may not consist of a chain.
