Awesome front pocket leather wallets

Updated on February 28, 2015

Benefits of front pocket wallets

I was a long time user of rear pocket wallets. I always considered that the rear wallets were the only way to go. My dad used a rear pocket wallet, his dad, dad's dad did and so forth.

I bought my first front pocket wallet when I was in college. What a life changing experience! Why? Why would I consider this life changing? Here are a few reasons that I like by front pocket leather wallet:

  • Less pain from sitting on a wallet all day
  • Less back pain because you are sitting straighter (I always favored one side that was without the wallet)
  • There is less bulk than a bi-fold or tri-fold wallet
  • Less robberies with front pocket wallets (harder to steal than an unattended back pocket wallet
  • More incentive to not carry receipts and unnecessary cards
  • Easy and fast access
  • Your jeans don't wear out as fast (always wallet marks before)

Horween Chromexcel Leather

Can a wallet outlast its owner?

Why we are featuring a Larsen and Ross leather wallet? They claim to have a wallet that will outlast the owner. How can they have such a claim? Is their leather that much better?

From the details of the wallet, we think that it could have the making of a long time fashion accessory. It seems that leather, the more it ages or gets more desirable.

Why do I hate back pocket wallets?

I am still amazed to see the plethora of tri-fold and bi-fold rear pocket wallets being sold. Not only are they being sold, but it is still difficult to find high quality and stylish leather wallets.

There are a number of reasons why I hate back pocket wallets:

  • I would get back pain from sitting on an angle with a bigger wallet
  • I am always nervous that someone will steal it with it accessible in my back pocket
  • I have had the wallet slip from my pocket
  • I hate wallet rub marks on jeans. It makes jeans look older than they really are.
  • I am more apt to keep uneeded papers or receipts with a bigger wallet.
  • The world is going more digital
  • No one carries pictures (everything on iphone or android)

Once you switch from a back pocket wallet to a front pocket wallet then you won't want to go back!
