    You find the nearest ATM [​IMG]

    but doesnt it really withstand years of punishment? i've seen LV bags last for over 15 years without much problem


    That's what I am saying though, is that the people buying the bags aren't doing it for the quality, but the damn LV logo. Not to mention they are ugly as all hell.

    sounds like what was happening when XCRX was in japan, but there it was PBJ and other denim brands. seems alot of good denim has been showing up on forum selling posts since then.

    i had a money clip with etched pagoda's on it. sadly it was stolen, found it in an antique store.

    the only other cool one i've seen was made from quarters by some jewelry company that makes everything from coins... the name escapes me, but i considered getting one, but didn't since i have a nice wallet already.

    oh and yes, lv does withstand years of punishment. i know some people with 20+ year old bags and they also "look better with age" so you can scoff all you want, but its true.

    Not to rain on anyone's parade, but what happens when you're walking around with a money clip worth more'n the money in it?? Doesn't that feel weird?

    probably the same as people with 300 dollar wallets and no money in them.

    pardon me for seeing no difference in owning 300 dollar jeans and not having any money in your pocket either.

    its a foolish thought that i got over very quickly. if you have an expensive item of clothing on, do you need to compensate for that item with an equal or greater amount in your wallet?

    and you can argue, oh, but if you bought a cheap wallet, you could have easily had that money in your wallet.

    yeah and if you got jeans from old navy you could have had more money in your pocket too.

    the only thing i could say is, a money clip has money a bit more out in the open, and as well, carrying a few bills in a clip causes for money to fold too much, making the usage of a clip seem unnecessary.

    other than that, i don't think many people should have somethign to say about it all, unless that is, you walk around with 100's of dollars in your pocket everywhere from a club to the corner store.

    i mean, that IS unless, you dont necessarily gravitate toward more quality (and thus more expensive in most cases) items. INCLUDING, wallets and money clips.

    That's it, everybody shop at walmart so you can have a big fat wad-o-cash in your pocket. Ladies won't care about your rustlers if you've got the bulge.

    I think it's about time for a BAPE x LV Bag. Really up the stakes in the obnoxious pattern game.

    it seems like everytime a moneyclip thread is brought up this discussion always happens. BUT can anyone find a similar style i started the thread with?

    thisisme, pardon the going off on a tangent.

    wish i could help, but montblanc has some similar ones although their pricing doesnt necessarily help.

    why not visit a fortuneoff? they carry a somewhat extensive line there, mostly reasonably priced in different metals.

    I used to carry a money-clip, then I used a black office binder clip, now just a slim wallet, but I really hope that this design comes into fruition:

    This and a Metro Card and I would be all set.

    The amount of cash I carry is not related to what I am wearing (house clothes or suit) and it appears that the only people who are bothered by a money clip are those who can't fill it. Same people who would be upset about the type of car another person drives.

    I'm interested in hearing what comments were said exactly, when someone saw their money clip.

    Looks like RF ID to me....and I say forget that.

    Right now i am carrying a slim walled with a money clip incorperated, but looking for something a little smaller. I have a few design ideas, but i need to find a good fabric/leather store.

    Surely you can see how, logical or not, there's a certain piquancy about having a money clip worth more than it's contents. It's like putting a print in an antique frame.
