Hey guys, This is my first post. I thought I would start out with a question/debate. I have always used a wallet, but recently started carrying a money clip. I was just wondering what other mens opinions are on the topic. Let me know.

I carry a thinner wallet with a money clip on the outside. Probably going to pick up another, thinner version for vacations and so forth if I can find one.
I too carry a thin wallet with the money clip on the outside in my front pocket.
Wallet. Only because that's what my dad did, so that's what I did. I've never tried a money clip.

FYI, watch when you make a discussion thread about the category you are putting it in. You put this one in the INTRODUCTIONS category. I am guilty of the same thing when I made my first one.
I figured it was wrong. I didn't know if this fell into dress and grooming, but it is kind of an introduction. I will keep that in mind though.
I carry a wallet only because I don't have a money clip. I'm going to get one though.
I rather like the convenience of a money clip when travelling. The clip does not replace my wallet, it simply supplements it, as it allows me to keep a certain amount of essential cash in the clip, with the balance remaining safely in the wallet. That way, I am never extracting all of my cash, identification, and credit cards for all to see when I need to make an incidental purchase along the way. (I also use the money clip to retain my receipts in order to better reconcile my travel expenses at the close of the day.) It's also a fine way to seperate foreign currency when travelling internationally.
I carry a very thin wallet with just ID, one debit card and a few larger bills. Then carry one or two small bills in the front pocket for incidentals.
I bought a "front pocket wallet"

It's basically a card holder/money clip and I love it! It holds just the right amount of cards and the center pocket is great for holding insurance cards (since they are thinner). If I need a "specialized" card, I just swap it out before hand (like my red cross, blood donor card). There is a great thread on this site about what men carry in their pockets. I've been carrying a wallet in the front pocket for years on the advice of my chiropractor, but recently swapped to the thinner model after reading some discussions about money clips and such. I've had it for about two years now and I've never experienced a problem with the magnet clip and my credit cards. (I'm surprised by the quality too, I really thought I would be purchasing a new wallet after a year or so.)
I'm a wallet guy. Used a money clip for a while, but got sick and tired of juggling my IDs, security cards, and plastic. If I happen to be going somewhere I need a lot of cash or where there's a big crowd, I'll still use the clip, and put it in one of my side pockets. Harder that way for someone to "liberate" it off you. But for all around utility, wallets can't be beat, IMO.
I do not like the huge wallet that looks like a baseball that you stuff in your back pocket & sit on all day(bad for your back), so I did away with mine. I carried a money clip for a while but have now bought a thin wallet that I keep in my front pocket. I thought about trying this:

Front Pocket Wallet
Wallet, But to tell you the truth I'm envious of the guys who have the nicely stock of cash money pinned up in the Gold, Silver or platinum money clip. I hear there was a time that if you didn't carry around between $500 to $1000 cash money you wasn't shit.

And you know what, just the other day my ex's boys were over 8 &9yrs old, the ice cream truck was ringing, and I told the boy's. Go get you some dollars out of my wallet over there. They did, but one of the tikes mumbles, "You only got two dollars cash; you a broke man?" That sucked... While sitting in my newly built home, in my Calvin briefs, watching MMA on that Sony 52" LCD while the sound of the punches echo in that surround sound that Yamaha receivers produce.

Baffled now after that moment; Am I really broke? No I just have to decide If should carry around a G.
I carry a small wallet that holds two credit cards and my DL. I also carry a money clip, and have since my grandfather presented me one when I turned 13. I still have that clip but do not carry it.

Militias, politics, anti-2nd amendment hysteria and the Bundy issue

Much of the hysteria, hatred and vituperation slung against Bundy and his supporters, in my opinion have little to do with the legal matters and much to do with the frightening image to some of armed citizens confronting legal enforcers of the law, regardless of the cause. The anti-2nd amendment crowd is in full cry over this, like hounds baying at a treed rapist of color in the old south. Bundy's supporters have been labeled by some anti-gun hysterics as mouth-breathing morons in 2nd-hand…See More
