Front Pocket Wallet - Who uses one?!?! - May 13, 2013, 02:21 PM

So I am at wits end with wallets. I hate having to buy a new wallet seeing that it takes my ass so long to mold the dang thing, but that time has come where I have to get a new one. I have always worn back pocket wallets but tired of having to buy new work pants and such from rubbing holes in my back pocket.

So really debating going Front pocket. Who uses one? I am most worried about not having the necessary cards needed. I believe I would prefer one with a money clip on the back side.

What are your reviews...what wallet do you have and how many cards do it hold?

***Sorry I am asking these questions(I know they are a little crazy)...but I HATE buying new wallets.**

some people find it strange I don't carry a wallet, but I'm a minimalist

I usually have a really slim wallet. My bank card my i.ds and miscellaneous papers or cards but they rarely ever stay there for long. If you don't typically carry a lot with you maybe just try a clip.

I carry a front pocket wallet, mostly because of overseas travel.

I've found the best way to carry a wallet is to minimize to 4-5 credit cards, IDs, 6-7 random cards costco/CCS license/Medical cards/metro. I do NOT like money clips attached to a wallet, they catch and cut and don't really help hold money all too well if they're magnets/

The shaped wallets are awesome, I sport one of those from Fossil.

If i went with a different wallet type, i would think about the phone cases that have the wallet built in. Ive seen some decent ones over the past few years. Sorry i dont remember any names or anything.

I already have keys in one pocket, my phone in the other. My zippo in the lighter/pocket watch pocket. So no place for me to have a front wallet..

I've carried a series of the Perry Ellis front pocket w/ money clip for about a dozen years:


They no longer make them so my wife preordered me one of these:


Also, my buddy makes watches (and his wife makes bands) so he's going to try and make something for me out of an old pair of boots.

I like this because I know Carhartt is built tough and I like the fact that it has the ID on the outside.

I've always carried a normal wallet in my front pocket.


ALL MY HEROES ARE RUSSIAN...GO CAPS!

Well you see, Norm, itís like thisÖA herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Now, as we know, excessive intake of alcohol kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. And that, Norm, is why you always feel smarter after a few beers.-Cliff Claven

Just as an FYI to anyone who carries their wallet in the back pocket......dont. It is not good for your lower back and pelvis. It is one of the main reasons that when I do fittings for cycling that peoples hips are out of wack. Just a heads up.

^^ Figured this. One of my pops friends was having crazy back problems and went to see like 3 different specialists. After they tried all these different things, he went to this back woods doctor who immediately asked what his wallet looked like. It was like 5 inches long and a inch thick. Made him stop wearing it for a week and all his back problems went away.
