Few minutes' work and couple of penn'orth of duct tape:
Oh, wait, I just realised.
"Oh, sorry, my money is stuck to my wallet"
I have a couple RFID-protected leather wallets from Rogue Industries, one brown and one black.
Civilian Lab in Dupont Kevlar.
I find wallets a bit cumbersome and quite frankly in the modern world, obsolete. I look at some of these and think what on earth are you carrying all that around for.
It’s a shame as there’s some beautiful leather wallets knocking about.
Just pay for everything with your phone?
Which is exactly why I spent a while searching out something that holds so much yet is so compact and that is also quality.
Pretty much yes. I usually carry a £5 emergency note but that’s it.
Yeah makes sense...plus the robots will be coming to kill us all soon anyway...
Currently using (since end of 2014) a Fratelli Rossetti blue embossed cowhide, purchased from their boutique in Genova for €300. Also carry a separate coins zipped circular leather pouch, made by an artisan in Singapore. This is very practical, only if one is in a country where coins are frequently used.
In addition, I also keep at home abt a dozen separate zipped transparent pouches each with different currency in it. Not a highly significant amount of cash in each pouch, but enough to get me started when I have to fly out urgently.
Last but not least, I have a thing with business card cases, so I possess a small collection with a variety of styles and designs, mostly in leather. I am of the opinion that a business card is an essential item and any professional should have a small set of such cards always on him/her. When I lived in Asia and was meeting clients and/or attending events often, I kept a dedicated business card case in each suit/jacket; this gave me peace of mind when rotating office attire.
Since I used to travel a lot for work in my previous job, I needed a wallet that could hold several cards, had a place to store receipts, and worked well with two currencies. I changed jobs in the meantime but I keep using this Bear Design leather wallet, even though I could "downsize".
I switched to a front pocket wallet years ago and have been very happy with this one. It’s made by Bosca.
I presume you then carry that in your top pocket to prevent the fatal bullet.
Better safe than sorry Tony.
