    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?

    You find the nearest ATM [​IMG]

    A lot of times I don't use my clip unless I have a wad of bills so most of the time that's not a problem. (Although I can remember one time where all I had in my clip was a $5 - that was kinda funny)

    I hate LV. It represents everything bad about consumerism. Buy it cuz it has status connected with it rather than it will withstand years of punishment.

    For such cases a paperclip would apply.

    i carry around a leather money clip from coach, i dont really like metal ones as they seem to get lost with the money, most are way too small..

    i sometimes get comments, most are usually questions, when i first got it and friends noticed, it was compliments. from cashiers, never a word.

    i don't use wallets as my jean pockets are too small. and i carry a card holder in my back pocket. when things need to be extra slim, i use only the card holder and put money in the middle pocket.

    "I took out $100 from the ATM just because I liked the feel of having an even $500 in my gazelleskin wallet..."

    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.

    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.
