    Where you normally career your wallet?

    Your front pockets?

    Or your backpockets?


    I always felt as if, carrying your wallet in your backpocket was unsafe. It could easily be pick pocketed or fall out.

    But i tend not to like to carry my wallet in my front pockets. Too many bulges that can distract woman from the man bulge. [​IMG]

    Whats the other option? A manbag? [​IMG]

    Breast wallet is IMO the only way to go. I had been waiting and wanting one for the last while and Canukers other half showed up with a Coach one as a surprise this weekend....First time walking around with it in the jacket and I love it. No more sitting on it and adjusting just a nice fit. Slim and easy to go in the front of my jeans, I have it in the front of some Incotex right now and its fine.

    Screams for a poll. But you left of the manpurse option. Not me...just saying...not that there's anything wrong with that.

    i use a credit card holder, then i just take the cash and fold it in half. Money clips are annoying and make a big display out of spending money, and i usually carry too much cash to fit in one.

    Jacket or coat pocket, usually. I hate carrying a wallet in my back pocket more than I hate the unsightly bulges caused by mobile phones and wallets in jacket pockets.

    I wouldn't wear my wallet in my pants unless Im in a place where I think leaving it my removed jacket is a bad idea. But a large or heavy wallet also throws the line of your jacket off. I use a very small credit card fold over that will hold a few bills. Even that drags my jacket down a bit. I suppose suits were designed at a time when men had credit everywhere and didnt need to carry wallets?

    i see i'm not the only one who hates throwing off my jacket with cell phones and things.

    I wish my pants had an extra pocket, a little slimmer for carry a cell in a way it wont get turned sideways and make even more of a goofy buldge.

    I wanted to, but couldn't for life of me figure out how to add one!

    I use a credit card holder but I do not keep it in my pant pockets. It is kept in my dress or casual jacket or I'll carry a portfolio to keep it there, along with my Blackberry, pen, keys, and other items.

    Front jeans or trouser pockets. I don't get why you'd stick it in your backpocket, anyone could take it.

    If it's in my pants, it's usually in my front (left!) pocket.

    Otherwise, it's in my backpack.

    Wallets have a tendency to turn into a small file cabinet full of receipts and whatnots. I've since moved on to a money clip-type wallet for cash, and credit card holder both in the front pockets. I used to put a thick wallet in my back pocket, but after a very long drive I found myself having this awful dull pain in my right lower back, the side where the wallet was.

    Front pocket. Not only does carrying it in the back pocket leave you at risk of pickpocketing, it's back for your back to sit on one cheek all the time.

    Jacket pocket is also a pickpocket risk. I usually take my jacket off when I sit, and then I'm always worried about walking away from my jacket and wallet.
