    Just noticed recently, most ppl put their wallet in the right back pocket, specially with those raw jeans, you can see the wallet mark on the right back pocket most of the time.


    I am a right hander, but i tend to put my wallet in the left, no reason, just intuitively. How about u guys

    Welcome to the board. I don't carry a wallet but my pockets are loaded as follows:

    front right - cash, change & receipts
    front left - credit card/id holder (this is my "wallet fade" area)
    back right - keys (i can a hole forming in some of my jeans from this)
    back left - work ID and transit cards

    Why everyone is keeping the wallet at the right?

    Right handed
    Wallet: left
    Phone: left
    Keys: right
    Watch: left (when I actually wear one)

    I guess this just worked out my trial and error. I feel comfortable with this arrangement. Can't really explain it.

    This thread seems a tad bit superfluous but I'll chime in. As a right hander I'm going to want things I normally use to be easily accessible to my dominant hand. Not sure how that's so hard to understand.

    Wallet: right
    Folding knife: right
    Keys: left

    I always put my wallet in my front fight pocket. Putting stuff in your back pockets is a great way for screwing up your back.

    More convoluted for me when wearing jeans...

    Rear right: folded handkerchief
    Front left: wallet (Slimmy so it is almost invisible)
    Front right: keys & little pocket knife in small zipped leather change bag (keeps pockets from tearing)
    (Forgot) Rear left: phone when I am walking around and don't have my leather belt phone sheath with me or a jacket with chest pockets...

    Right handed, btw.

    Edit:
    Agree with Fok, having crap like wallets in your arse pockets is a good way to give yourself problems...

    My chiropractor is always giving me hell for keeping my wallet in my back pocket. I keep it pretty thin though so I think it's okay. Nothing like george's from seinfeld...

    Yeah, my wallet is actually an ID holder, so it's slim. I have my license, school ID, 2 credit cards, and cash. The whole thin is less than .5" in thickness so I can't even feel it.

    I'm right handed and I carry my wallet in my strong side back pocket. I take it out if I'm going to be sitting for long periods of time, though (eg driving). Fok's right: shit is not good for your back, even if it's small and just uncomfortable.

    I was going to mention this but you beat me to it. I've had a bad back for a number of years, L5 to be exact. I use to carry a wallet in my back right pocket. I met with a therapist who through her interview with me asked me if I carried a wallet in my back pocket and I stated that I did. She explained that by doing this I was canting my spinal posture to a degree that would create alot of the pain I was experiencing at the time. Well, needless to say it really did work and I never carry a wallet in my back pocket.

    Regardless of the back issue I find it so uncomfortable to sit on my wallet - I don't understand why people so it. That's what a jacket inside pocket is for.

    If I wear a blazer, sure... otherwise I keep it in the back pocket. But now after reading drink's and LA's posts... I'll try to keep it in the front. My back is bad enough anyway.

    I find it more comforting to know that my wallet is on me, rather than on an item that I take off and my inadvertently leave behind somewhere.

    I put my wallet in my front pocket with dress pants, however usually in the rear because the front is reserved for my lip gloss, keys, cell phone, and sometimes a card holder.
