Thin profile flip case!

I used to be a back pocket guy. I also used to have constant back pain. Moved the wallet to the empty front in the 90's and it went away.

It's like this - keys left front. Wallet, bug spray, sunblock, left cargo. Knife, right front. Phone, protein bar(s) right cargo. Optional items fit in somewhere include extra ammo, blue tooth headset if working on the go, and the occasional can of beer when it's going to be a while and the cooler is too heavy to carry wherever we are going. Maybe a flashlight or some tools.

The back pockets are left empty because sitting on lumpy E36 M3 is not on my to-do list.

You need a purse for all that.

Left front: Front pocket wallet.

Right front: Keys and pocket knife.

Right rear: Phone, take it out when you sit down.

That's the nice part about jeans. There's only a few pockets so you don't end up carrying extra E36 M3 around.

This.

Except for the wallet and the keys. Keys are on a belt clip, wallet goes in the back right pocket. I've been carrying it there for so long there is a custom formed dent in my ass for it. Needless to say, I hate breaking in a new wallet.

Extra space can also be taken up with tools and or door parts, depending on the current situation.

I have this vision of Napoleon Dynamite pulling tater tots out of the cargo pocket in his pants.

I'm wearing cargo shorts right now. At work. There are 3 more pair at home waiting for me. If nothing else, the ability to stuff a full water bottle in one side and folded up hat in the other while auto/rallycrossing is awesome.

I'm a skinny jeans, dress shorts to the office, cut off jean shop/yard work shorts (trim, but not snug) kind of guy. My former wives and my present wife say my ass looks good. Deal with it Biatch

Form fitting skinny jeans and shorts suck. Mrs. DX has no problem with me wearing cargo shorts (even ones that have holes in them or cut off ones) and they work for me so all sides are happy. /Thread and next topic please

Regularly or occasionally?

Regularly I have: fat, non-critical wallet (cash, change, business cards, etc) in front left; thin critical wallet (ID, insurance, credit card) and keys in front right; and phone in right cargo. I hate stuff on my back pockets.

Even though the cargo pockets aren't filled all the time, they're still incredibly useful on the frequent occasions I want to carry anything else. Water bottles, tools, paperback book, stuff for the baroness, or just... whatever.

I wear Dickie's double-knee twill pants for work. I wish they had cargo pockets. The ones with cargo pockets are twice as much, and they aren't wide leg, which I need to fit around the outside of my much boots.

Back right wallet
back left receipts, notes, lists
front right keys and knifes
front left cash and phone
right cargo smokes and lighter if wearing a pocketless shirt
left cargo miscellanious nuts and bolts, zip ties, random stuff

only change is on autox day or long road trips, wallet gets hidden in the car because 23 year old miata seats aren't comfortable

And for the winter, cargo jeans in the same layout.

1 - Plastic topped keys don't jangle.

2 - Stop walking like a girl.

3 - After 35 years, you get used to it. Normally I don't hear it. I do keep an hand on them when silence is necessary, or walking between parked cars.

I don't do shorts of any kind. And with my build I wear suspenders most of the time. So for working around the house I prefer these.

We call that a backpack. That is for when you are going far enough to need a whole six pack and E36 M3 paper.

I wear cargo shorts at work every day in the summer, cargo pants in the winter. I have good cargo's to wear for when I'm not at work and work ones to wear when I am.

This is a recent development. Until a couple years ago I wore blue jeans only, year round, didn't even own shorts. Cargo shorts have changed my life, I give a damn about fashion.

We need a philosophy of use for cargo shorts to make this complete.

The idea of my keys coexisting with my phone is like nails on a chalkboard, and I don't sit on stuff, thus the need for a 3rd pocket.
