    When walking around places like La Rambla or Bourbon Street at night, I put my wallet (and passport if applicable) in my front pants pocket. The pickpocket will have to violently tear the pocket out to get at the goods, and I will probably notice (unless it is very late indeed)...

    Admittedly it is uncomfortable to carry stuff in your front pockets, but you are aware at all times that the stuff is still there..

    Anyone have pictures of said "card holder" with cards & cash folded? I've always kept my wallet in the back pocket. Of course I am lacking in the funds department so pick pockets beware!!!![​IMG]

    And to my shame I admit I match the color to my briefcase/shoes.

    Once, I was on vacation and because of all the horror stories I heard about pick pockets, I carried an old wallet with nothing but a card the read "Jesus Saves" in the ID window in my back pocket...it got lifted!!!! [​IMG]

    i use a small wallet like a card holder and keep it in my breast pocket of my blazer or my back pocket of my jeans all you really need is an id, credit card and a small amount of cash. unless you are still currently dealing drugs

    probably should cut that out

    That's fantastic!

    I only carry a small Koyono slimmy with a couple of cards and a bit of cash. Always in the breast pocket of my jacket or the front pocket of my pants if I'm not wearing one.

    Front pocket for casual pants (jeans, chinos), back pocket for dress slacks.

    always the back pocket unless I'm in a city that is very crowded for pick-pockets. I have a front pocket wallet/card holder for those occasions.

    front chest pocket typically.

    Good topic


    Breast pocket is the way to go, but the pocket and jacket must be specially designed for it. Wallets in RTW breast pockets don't usually work.

    Back pocket usually but when in crowded places (malls etc) it gets moved to the front pocket. I also dislike the bulge but with the amount of stuff often required to carry around, I don't seem to have a choice.

    I put my wallet directly down my pants. I can't stand things cramped in pockets. It's safer and much more comfortable. In addition - especially if you have a nicer wallet, it looks much nicer just to see the top of the wallet sticking out the top of your trousers rather than a giant bulge. And finally, it doesn't ruin the fabric, and you can't forget it and put it through the wash! I've never understood why guys jam the things in their pockets when you can just tuck it under your belt!

    True if you live in a third world country.
