    I've just recently gotten into the raw skinny types of jeans. My only trouble is with fitting items in these jeans. I had previously bought a pair of Earnest Sewn Kyrres and it already seemed a little although livable difficulty with placing items such as keys and cell phone into the jeans. I recently purchased a pair of APC New Cures and I can barely take out my wallet while standing up after I squeeze it in. Anyone have problems such as this?

    I carry a bag because I don't want cell phone fades in my jeans. I suggest a bag.

    Carry a cell phone in your back pocket or in something else. The front pocket fade is baaaaad. Get a clip or a beener to put your keys on and hook that onto a belt loop.

    The wallet pocket will stretch out a bit, don't worry about that too much.

    OK Thanks for the advice guys. I think I'll do the back pocket and key clip since I am a teenager and I do like to text in class which I need the vibrate working on my phone [​IMG]. Also, I don't think I can rock the bag very well.

    The unfortunate news is that certain accessories of a rather anatomical nature cannot be worn on a carabiner. This is the cross one must bear.

    For one, don't wear jeans you can't put shit in while wearing. Use it as a chance to own less ugly things, slim wallet, get rid of unnecessary keys, and get a small cell phone.

    This is why I carry a mini-messenger...mangbag if you will. It holds all my necessary junk.

    I choose my cell phones not on which has the best functionality, but which has the slimmest profile.

    I'm down to two keys.

    I carry a money clip / card holder with only 3 cards in it.

    The biggest problem I have is the fat bankroll I carry

    this has been the case for me. while out, i usually hand all my stuff: wallet, keys, phone, over to my wife to hold in her handbag.
    this has come to be a slight nuisance over time and but i cannot help it. i cant fit some stuff into my jeans, well i can, but it looks unsightly.

    i need a messenger bag as well. yeah a man purse i guess. where can i get a decent stylish one for cheap? preferably like a sling over.

    +1. Random story: I had a George Costanza wallet for the longest time. It got to the point where I would just take it out of my pocket every time I sat down. This, not surprisingly, led to multiple panicked occasions when I couldnt remember where Id left it. When I got my first pair of slim jeans, I also got a new slim wallet, I still get panicked every once in a while, but then I realize itś been in my pocket the entire time; I dont even know its there. I also dont carry my V-Dub key fob anymore unless I'm actually driving, and my cellphone is this sexy, svelte Korean thing.

    I already own a slim wallet and a Razr2 as well as only having 2 keys (house and car). It was more that I've never worn anything as tight as the New Cures before (I sized down 2 which I think was the proper thing to do).

    Funny, this is how I size my jeans...if I can't carry all my crap in them, they don't fit right. [​IMG] Sounds like your pants are too small....though APC have really shallow pockets from my memory...
