    Mulberry city wallet in my right front pocket with a few loose bills for incidentals. I got it in Paris 15 years ago and it still hasn't worn out. Bigger bills are inside the wallet. Car key fob in summer. It goes in my coat pocket when it's cold. I keep the iPhone that this pic was taken on in my left pocket. Nothing in either back pocket. Change? Only until I reach Starbucks where it goes in the tip jar.

    My retired elder brother wears overalls every day. He has at least half-a-dozen pocketknives and an equal number of pens stuffed in various pockets. I think he believes he will either be able to administer the "death of a thousand cuts" to an attacker or write out the Constitution and Bill of Rights (in multiple colors) if somebody asks for a hand written copy.

    I was very surprised, one day, that he had purchased a messenger-bag; a "man-bag". It was very nice (leather) but so out of character I thought he might be suffering from dementia (he's 72). He is a child of the 1950's, almost radical-conservative, etc., so to see him waltz into the local coffee-shop (Panera) with a purse...well, I nearly died laughing. As it is with our family, anything that can contain something must be stuffed overfull. He carried it twice before he could no longer lift it. I suspect it is standing in a corner with all of his other BOBs (bug out bags). When the Aliens/Gov't/Zombies attack, he will be easily overwhelmed simply because he will spend too much time choosing the proper bag...

    I know a guy - a millennial - who carries a 9mm with 18 rounds in it on his hip everyday. One day, I caught him struggling to open a food package and I asked, "Where's your knife??"

    "I don't have one," he says.

    "You mean, when you got dressed this morning, you thought it was more likely that you'd encounter a situation where you needed 18 rounds of 9mm than it was a situation where you'd need a pocketknife?"

    He got embarrassed and has carried a knife ever since (nice bone handled case knife, to his credit).

    FWIW, this talk of overalls has changed my sidebar ads to Uncle Kracker concerts and local hearing aid shops.

    I HAFTA get me a pair now.

    you asked.....actually, before you freak out, i made this as a parody.....to be funny. i had watched one of those 'naked gun' type movies where 2 spies started getting undressed to make out and all of a sudden they were throwing down like 20 weapons......so i made this. plus, i wanted to see if i could conceal 5 at once......i only carry one.

    I read about the CCW guy earlier who didn’t carry a knife. I used to carry a box cutter, but kept losing them.
    Only 12 rounds

    It’s quite good. I’ve carried this bag almost every day for about two years and it still looks brand new. The DJ bag is really simple and unstructured, which appeals to me. Just a big LP-sized bag with two smaller pockets.

    I have a 16" fold out saw packed in for a multitude of purposes. Don't leave home without one.

    Okay, so what is a "bill hook" and will it fit into my EDC bag?
