Keys destroying pants...

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I always carry my keys in my right pant pocket, I couldn't imagine putting them anywhere else, where else is there? I have a problem with getting a spot in my pants regardless of material where my keys seems to dirty up the outside of my pants somehow. I can't imagine I'm alone with this problem, have any of you had/have this problem and does anyone have a solution? Danke Shoen. Eric

yes, dont put your keys in your pocket. I never put them in there for that reason. I carry them, in my hand. If I am with my wife, I have her through them in her purse. If not, I just find a place to store them, if I will be somewhere for a bit.

Leather key cases take care of the problem. The zip pouch type wears better, in my opinion, than the snap and link type. Will

Simplify your life and carry less keys. One or two keys don't destoy pants. 20 keys do. Have two keychains. One with only the car key, and another one with the house key. Or better yet: eliminate house key (put an electronic combination lock in the house). Or if you want to reduce the keys to one: make all keylocks in the house use the same key. (Home depot will change the cylinder of a keylock for about $5).

I'm waiting for someone to come out with a universal version of those retractable keys like the Mercedes has. One for the car, one for the house, that could retract into a smooth thin package.

Very good advice from a security perspective also.

I only carry keys in my jean pants, never in my trousers.

A leather key case takes care of this problem. I have a shell cordovan case I purchased from Alden of Carmel. Many others available.

I split my keys into groups (home/work/car) and carry only the keyring(s) I need and preferably use the small lower pocket on my jacket for that. B

i put my keys in my pocket to go to work and to return home. throughout the day (and depending on how long the day goes, the night), they sit on my desk in their usual place. this may do nothing to prevent destruction of my suit pant pockets, but at least it makes me feel like i'm trying.

Good point about carrying fewer keys. Or if appropriate leave key with doorman. Or as prev. poster mentioned, carry in briefcase.

I hook them to my belt-loop. I know its a little too straight forward for many of you but I think it looks good, and many of my friends agree.

Brian, What is the beltloop attached to? Jeans? A pair of trousers from a suit? I can imagine the keys working as an accessory with jeans, especially if there's a funky keychain. On suit trousers though it might look a bit odd.

carrying less keys is definitely important, but I suggest you check out a pair of Oxxford trousers-- they have a LARGE hidden pocket in the waist, in addition to an inner pocket made especially for keys in the right hand trouser pocket, to prevent just the problem you've identified.
