Any suggestions? What's your wallet, and where'd you get it?

mines is a flap of cow skin. its got more pockets than you can shake a stick at. they are small and inconspicuous enough to not make the wallet overly fat, unless they are all used simultaneously, but there are too many. sometimes i just poke through the infinite wonderness of my wallet, to see what i can find. yesterday i hit the jackpot: a very enjoyable dime of powder.

'twas a present, some years ago, from the birth-giver. [the wallet, i mean. not the coke]

My buddy bought me one when she was in Italy two years ago. Black, simple, a couple of credit card slots, a roomy currency compartment and a license/ID window. Has my initials engraved on the inside.

I would've opted for "Bad Motherfucker", but I didn't have any say-so in the matter.

Mine is some cheap thing, I don't even recall buying it, which is the best way (IMO) to come about owning a wallet. Who wants to pay for a placeholder for about-to-be-spent money?

Because you can look like a schmuck if you have a dork-o wallet. Nothing impresses the ladies more than pulling out a thick ugly wallet you've owned for 10 years, full of cards you can't even recall getting in the first place.

You have to put a little thought into it.

Same goes for dropping bucks at a bar, or *ahem*, for a lapdance, in a martini bar, etc. A few bills in a nice clip is more fitting.

Plus it's hard to show off a nice ass to the ladies if you have a big bulge on one side. (note: this is a plus in the front)

I use a slimmy:
http://www.koyono.com/slimmy/slimmyKata.htm

It holds 1 ATM card, a few $20s and some receipt or transit pass. Basically 3 things - intentionally.

It has an L-shaped stitching so that only the edges peel open slightly, it doesn't unfold. As a result, it's very thin.

It's for your front pocket. I keep my pocket money loose in the other pocket. There's nothing in my backpockets.

I'll never carry a full sized wallet again. No more of that asscheek tumor feeling.

I have a Fossil (leather) wallet that was given to me about 8 years ago. Nicely broken in now but the stitching is starting to come loose in spots. I dread the day when I must get a new one. I hate new wallets.

3M's Duct-tape wallet; instructions on their website. I just had to do it after reading this infomercial cheese:

"Most people agree that Duct Tape can save you money on costly repair bills but did you know that you could create a wallet to hold all of the money you’ve saved? It’s not as difficult as it sounds and in just a few simple steps, you could be the proud owner of this year’s most important fashion statement (“Duct Tape is my life”)."

Are you kidding? I had to Google what the hell I was.

I just wake up, come here, and some days I have a new name. I never know what the hell these kids are going to do.

you can usually tell who's changed them based on what they for.

for example, last time it changed they were all various OTC drugs one could get high from. (Jack)

this time they're old school zelda characters. (Brad)

i usually change them on an individual basis.

EDIT: new names coming in a few minutes. The theme shouldn't surprise anyone.

And you can thank me for the Ninja Turtles and Zelda characters. I've been on a classic NES bent lately.

You do come off the bench at the end, during a bench clearing brawl... to strip down to your jock and skate around the rink.

Crap, I'm packing a George Costanza special.....I need to ditch this thing and go light to impress the ladies.... I wonder if I can do it.

The wallet is great though, it's a double-fold with a flip out ID window on the righthand side, with my license oriented so that it is aimed toward the cashier when I flip it out. I spent $80+ for it but it lasted for a good deal longer than the previous wallets.

I had one of those flipout wallets, but after a while I got tired of the added bulk of that leather flap with the plastic window to hold my drivers license. It seemed an unnecessary addition to the wallet's width.

Now I have a brown leather wallet that was a gift from China (Louies Berry) with 4 credit card holders on each side - but I do not fill them all - with wallets, I'm all for "less is more".

Maybe the money clip is a good idea - that and one credit card.

All I want is a simple life

The best part is, it's not necessarily because they have the money, but rather because they want to appear that they have the money. Gotta love that.

I love that quote from Kramer when he got a moneyclip - "I keep the big bills on the outside, Jerry" ... and it was only a fiver.
