Why Would Any Man Put His Wallet In His Back Pocket?

You're just asking for a pick pocketing.

by Anonymousreply 6403/24/2013

I've never understood that either, not only because of pick-pocketers, but because who the hell wants to feel it while they're sitting down?

I've always put my wallet in my front pocket.

It's even MORE uncomfortable in a front pocket!!

I use a Buxton Suppository wallet that can be gently shoved up my ass after each transaction. The only downside is one quickly develops a love hate relationship with the demands of christmas shopping.

Putting your wallet in your back pocket is a throwback to days gone by. Days when kids could ride in the back of a pickup, when you didn't have to lock your car door and you left the car running when you ran inside the store...

Old habits die hard for some people.

R8, I carry a very thin wallet with only a few cards and driver's license, so I always carry it in my front pocket. I carry cash separately in a money clip.

Feels so nice when it's removed from the back pocket.

Always in the front pocket. I've had lifelong back pain and it's markedly better since I've switched that wallet to the front pocket.

How does this affect bulge? Where is your cock - do you wear your pants sideways? You can put a wallet in your front pocket and still show plenty of box!

Wallet in back pocket = pelvis and spine out of alignment, pain.

by Anonymousreply 1412/21/2011

i highly doubt that 1/2" of wallet under the soft fleshy padding of the ass is going to contribute to poor posture or back pain.

if you wear pants that fit correctly, getting a wallet out of the front pocket will be difficult.

I usually carry mine in my jacket or coat pocket though. In the summer, back pocket or in my messenger bag.

Never front pocket though.

Always the back pocket or if wearing a suit, the inside jacket pocket. Putting a wallet in the front pocket is strange, it's like a little kid who sticks his allowance in his front pocket and hops on his bike or something.

I've ditched the wallet almost completely. Instead, it's a moneyclip with cash, a driver's license, ATM card, and one credit card. Front pocket, fits easily.

by Anonymousreply 1812/21/2011

Back pocket, definitely. I like a wallet with enough heft to know that it is there, but by no means a great bulging George Constanza thing. I carry only a few cards in it (driver's license, a couple credit cards, and an ATM card); currency I stick in a front pocket, with no money clip -- it stays together quite neatly.

Only on the rarest of occasion might it go (briefly) into a front pocket, say while wandering through thick throngs of people.

The only time I put a wallet in a front pocket is when visiting a crime-ridden city... walking around in New Orleans, New York, San Francisco, etc.

[R13] How big is your wallet that it effects your back??

by Anonymousreply 2112/21/2011

I carry mine in the the inside front pocket of my jacket or coat. Otherwise when it's warm I just carry a super slim holder for a card/cash in the front pant pocket. or I just use natures credi card and carry nothing

Affects, R21, not effects.

Mine is pretty big and bulgy, what with all the goodies inside.

I know chiropractors advise not carrying a wallet in your back pocket and occasionally I don't, especially in crowds of people I can't trust it is carried in the front pocket. But in the morning when I get dressed and grab my wallet, old habits die hard and I always put it in my back pocket.

Working at a desk all day with a wallet in your back pocket will eventually be the cause of back pain. My doctor advised me to remove the wallet and my back pain is gone.

Men used to wear tighter pants in the 70's, 80's, etc. and it was hard to pick the pocket back then. Now men wear baggy pants because they are afraid of being sexualized and so the wallet has to go in the front pocket because all sorts of shit can be going on back there and you'd never know it.

Plus it's been proven that thick wallets in the back pocket cause spinal problems while sitting.

Because a gentleman only showcases ONE prominent bulge in the front of his pants.

You're talking about a "gentleman" r37? Sounds more like a prostitute/hustler to me.

Yeah it's so uncomfortable and stupid to put it in the back pocket. I always put it in a different pocket-front pants pocket, if I'm wearing pants that have pockets on the side maybe in there, maybe if my shirt or jacket has a's just not good for you and easy to be stolen if it's behind your ass.

If you're wearing a jacket or blazer with a breast pocket that's the best place for it. If you're a man.

If my wallet is full, I put it in my breast pocket sideways so it doesn't bulge.

Thank goodness for Cargo pants!

Used to wear wallet in back pocket. Developed back problems a few years ago, so back pocket is no longer an option.

Front pocket is also uncomfortable, but tolerable in a pinch.

If I going dressier, the wallet goes in the breast pocket of the jacket.

Not really related to the thread, but I am reminded of the guy I was walking down the street behind a few weeks ago. He was a little shorter than me, quite muscular and cut, and wore very tight gray cords. In his back pocket was his iphone and i could make out the camera lens the way those pants clung to his ass.

Excuse me, gotta go now...

I put mine in my back pocket. Live in NYC my entire adult life (nearly 40 years). Use public transportation every day- never been pick pocketed. On crowded trains and such I often put my hand over the pocket.

Grow some breasts, seriously.

I'm a woman and usually don't like to carry too much on me when I go out. So I have a small billfold that I put a few bills and my bank card and ID in, and then I tuck it inside the top part of my bra, near the shoulder.

Dont like too many bulky things in my pocket, as I already carry my eyeliner and chapstick/lipgloss there.

Breasts are like useful shelves on top of your body. When I'm hiking I even tuck my phone into my bra.

by Anonymousreply 5411/20/2012

I never use pockets at all. I hate things crammed in pockets. I put it directly down my trousers or shorts. It's much more comfortable, as well as safer. In addition (especially if you have a nicer wallet) it looks much better with just the top of your wallet sticking out of your pants or belt rather than giant bulge in your pocket. And it doesn't cause damage to the fabric of your good clothes, AND finally you can't accidentally put it through the wash! No contest.

I've never ever had pants with front pockets so I put it in my SIDE pockets. The bulge from the wallet is on my side. I have no clue how you could carry a wallet in your back pocket, that pocket is too small and you couldn't sit comfortably.

Front pocket, always. It's much more comfortable.

Have lived in NYC all my life, crowded subways, platforms, grimy hoods....always back pocket, never pick pocketed once.

Did drop my wallet on Astor Place once (was putting stuff on a friend's car roof). I had it back with everything in it including the cash the next day.

Haven't bulky wallets in back pockets been associated with back pain?

by Anonymousreply 6303/24/2013

Back pocket. Always -- since I was a teenager.

Purses are a pain in the ass and I was always losing mine.

The only time my wallet was stolen was when I had it in a purse.
