iPhone in Suit Jacket Pocket...How to stop the weight drag on one side?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 

I'm a fairly slim guy, so I don't know if this has to do with my build or not, but in some of my suits, my iPhone which is slightly heavy pulls down on my jacket ever so slightly that it feels uneven on one side. It probably isn't very noticeable to others, but to me it is.

 

Is there a particular way that suit jackets are constructed to counter weight in one side, when something is in one pocket? Because I swear a couple of my jackets work just fine with the iPhone in there, and others it feels lopsided. Not sure if it has something to do with the canvasing.

 

I find that it's sometimes worse in my dress pants. Especially if my phone starts falling diagonally within the pocket so that it shows even more.

Your Apple representative suggests you carry two identical iPhones at all times. Since manufacturing is very precise, those phones should be from the same lot. See your Apple dealer for two new phones.

Other than that, I wouldn't worry about it unless it really bugs you.

Yah, carry two iphones and put one in each pocket. If you only have one iphone, carry a yo-yo in the other pocket.

I mean come on. If you put more weight on one side than the other, it is going to feel uneven.

Cut the iPhone in two.

Wear your wallet in the other pocket. (Don't know if this works with iPhones, but it works with my HTC Desire HD. Might depend on size of wallet.)

Are you talking about the inside pockets or the outside pockets? The outside pockets are decorative only. They are not meant to carry things.

I hope this is sarcasm.

This will happen in any suit, just roll with it. I can't think of a way, short of a second iPhone & perfect counter balance, to remedy this. And even then, having 2 equal weights will cause pulling on each side.

I suppose you refer to switching your phone to vibrate as "switching to sensual mode"?

Absolutely. I call it "affection" mode.

Wait, I have just figured it out. You know how something like 90% of the male population has a left testicle that hangs lower than the right because of the way the vessels run or something? Just put your iphone in your right pocket to balance this out. It might do wonders for your spine.
