    cell phone goes in the cell phone pocket, knife in the lower left pocket, keys and change in the left pocket. Do you people not wear Carhartts or something?

    I've never put my wallet in my back pocket, and I don't understand why people do.

    In 1998, I bought a cheapo Billabong tri-fold wallet, and it's been in use since, even though it's constantly bulging with paperwork/receipts. I really hate tri-folds, and this thread may motivate me upgrade to a wallet that I was given in 2000 after I graduated... 8th grade. :lol3

    I got one 4 months ago and it's just starting to break in nicely. It is one nice, comfortable wallet.

    Hand made in the USA and it comes with a 2 dollar bill. Pretty cool.

    Reading this ... I just ordered an original All-Ett wallet in all nylon. Tired of the costanza wallet. Thanks for all the input!

    This is the strongest wallet I've ever had: LINK

    Wallets usually last me about a year (I'm hard on stuff). I got this one from inmate Raindog at his former shop "Raindogs" three years ago and it's still like new. Made of inner-tube rubber, which makes it strong and unique. I get comments on it all the time. The only potential downside is that the rubber is really grippy, so it's a little more difficult to slide bills in than with leather, but that's a small issue for such a great wallet.

    Wallet goes in chest pocket of flight suit (work) or an inside jacket pocket, unless it's too hot for a coat. Then I just carry a mini "wallet" w/1 credit card, a debit card and ID plus a few bills on the back of that in the attached money clip in a front pocket. If I'm wearing cargo shorts instead of pants I'll just put the full size wallet in one of the cargo pockets on the side.

    Cell phone goes in opposite pocket or I just carry it...or just leave it in the car. I'm working towards the day that I need neither cell phone nor watch. If someone needs to get to me that badly they can send a runner! :D. Ironically, I will sometimes slip my cell phone into a rear pocket while walking around but take it out before I sit down.

    Usually have a small knife (currently a Benchmade mini-Griptilian) clipped in my right front pocket.

    Usually have a mini LED flashlight (single CR123 battery...currently a Brite Strike RL 180MH) clipped in my left front pocket.

    I only carry a single car key (remote access fob, tucks into the little coin pocket in jeans) or if I'm driving my POS $400 beater truck I'll just leave the keys in it. I can only hope that it's stolen! :rofl It took me awhile to get comfortable not carrying a key to every damn car plus the bike plus the house plus the storage sheds, etc. but man is it nice. I'll typically either not take them or just lock them in the car and carry only the car key.

    Less really is more when it comes to carrying all that crap around...

    I just made these for a couple of friends this week. 4" wide x 2 3/4" tall, 1/4" thick, completely hand-made and hand stitched, so no 2 are alike! The center section is for paper cash and there are 2 additional card pockets on each side. I currently carry 9 cards and a few bills in mine and it works great! I've got many different types of leather (exotics as well - gator, caymen, shark, elephant, etc...), and stitch colors available, so just let me know if I can help!

    I think we have the same wallet and I carry mine in the front pocket too. Problem for me that I don't need that many card pockets or I feel obligated to put something in them. Really, do I need to carry my loyalty cards everywhere I go?

    I'd tweak the card holder a bit, but that's pretty nice! Easy to make too!

    Great info here!
    So far the BigSinny is the one I liked best.
    But the best was to learn about the Key Ring app.....
