    From wikipedia. Products look pretty horrible, but don't bundle the poor guy for calling it duck tape.
    Just because it's in Wikipedia doesn't make it right. In fact, schools, universities, doctors etc. recommend staying away from Wikipedia because of how many things on there are wrong. Don't automatically assume that something on Wikipedia is right just because it's written there, because that's not the case at all. I'm not commenting on this subject in particular, just overall. I see a lot of people on the internet blindly quoting from Wikipedia without realising what they're doing. Whatever it's called, the products made from it are damn ugly. Sorry, but there you go. Keep making your items, though. You just have to know your crowd and how/where to sell your stuff. This place isn't one of them.

    I appreciate your criticism but the "damn ugly" things I make are made with Duck Tape.

    In all seriousness, I really don't think my wallets are the next big thing and didn't come on here with big hopes of selling them. I know this is not the duct tape wallet crowd and hope people here can at least appreciate the humor of the wallets.

    Absolutely appreciate the humor of the wallets. Hopefully we're laughing together.

    Since you obviously have patience and manual dexterity, why don't you try your hand at leatherwork? I'm sure you'd find a market for woven leathergoods (just don't rip off BV!)

    Duck tape is the brand name, not the name of the product (as evidenced on the product label). Like I said, whatever it's called, the products made from them are damn ugly, and this isn't the place to either show them off or sell them. Sorry, but I don't find the wallets in the least funny.

    I think these are pretty creative. Thanks for sharing! I sure as heck don't have the patience or skill to do anything like this. Welcome to the forum!

    Hmmmm they must all have that wonderful duct tape smell [​IMG]

    Guess they'd be nice for some by bringing back fond memories of kidnappings, hostage-situations and the good ole' tape-over-mouth-black-bag-on-head-into-the-black-van interrogations!

    Sorry you can't see the humor in them but am glad that many others do. I edited my original post and title to avoid any more duct/duck banter. Don't really care either way.

    Well shit, are you saying I am going to have to re-write my dissertation?

    OP is advertising his stuff in a forum about fine men's clothing. This approximates a direct violation of forum rules, contributes to the runoff of high quality posters, and wastes bandwidth. Granted, OP's subsequent postings make him appear to be a nice guy, but a mere cursory review of the forum would have at least prepared the OP for the onslaught if not outright convinced him it would be a bad idea to post in the first place.

    Also, they are made of duct tape. Duct tape.


    God, you're uptight.

    Actually, I should have reserved my comment above for you. [​IMG]

    So true. I am really, really bent out of shape about duct tape.

    This is pretty cool, although I wouldn't buy it myself. Where'd you get the idea?

    Duck is more acceptable than duct.

    Mainly because the stuff will fall right off ductwork.

    I saw someone who had a duck tape wallet years ago when I was in college and was intrigued. Went on a camping trip and my friends left to try to find another friend who was coming. They ended up being gone for several hours. I was bored to death with no cell service and noticed a big role of duct tape on table. A few hours and several beers later, the wallet was born.

    Hey man. Why dont you try to make something out of infusion systems (not used ones)... chains and simple dolls out of them used to be pretty popular in the last years of Soviet Union
