I guess everyone is different. I'm a minimalist for wallet contents. I think that I normally carry three cards total, including a driver's license. There are a three or four bills in the wallet of bribery denominations. That's it. A bit more cash in a money clip, in hail-a-cab and tip-the-doorman denominations.
I tend to change wallets most days anyway...obviously a habit unknown to most mortal men. I just leave the cash in each wallet.

Yeah, well that's completely normal. Even in coat and tie environments these days, the tendency to shed a jacket indoors is probably the rule rather than the exception. I do it only rarely, though. I don't think I've ever done it with suspenders on.
Manton had a post a few months ago where he mentioned his increasing reluctance to take his jacket off to reveal suspenders, leading to wearing suspenders less since he is often among guys who lose the coat in meetings and he does so as well. Fishtail back? Fuggedaboutit.
