    I carry mine either in front trouser pocket, or front breast pocket. I use the lightest, thinnest, smallest wallet possible... just enough to carry a few cards and some folded cash. That's all I need 90% of the time. I have another wallet to carry everything else and just take that too when I need to.

    I also have a couple MTM trousers with an extra hidden pocket that opens at the waistband. It's large enough to fit a small card-holder wallet. I really like this... I've been thinking about taking other trousers to tailor see if they can do those too.

    I really hate carrying keys and cell phones. Nowhere to really carry those without causing odd bulging and pulling. That's why I often carry a jacket/coat with me even though I might not need one.

    I usually have my keys/cell/bb/wallet/etc in my briefcase. If I must carry the wallet on me - I use a small card holder and put it in my front pocket, so that my jacket covers it.

    Hey guys, why do you think women don't carry their wallet in their back pocket??? Right...because it blocks the view! Too much discussion about putting something where it doesn't belong.
    Just put it all in a Stretch and FAGETABOUTIT!

    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.
