A lot of people ask us- a) does your wallet snap get in the way? b) are your wallets designed to be kept in your front or back pocket? The short answer is “no”, and “both” respectively. Pretty much everyone at Couch has a Couch Wallet- some of us use them in our front pocket, some of us in our back, but we all love them. The thinline snap enclosure keeps our stuff secure and stays out of the way as far as thickness goes, and the auto upholstery material we use is strong, so we can leave the wallets un-lined for the thinnest overall profile and these babies last years.
Our pro-skater buddy Chet Thomas once told us his chiropractor said that simply sitting down with a wallet in your back pocket is one of the #1 ways to get your spine out of balance and cause wallet back pain. That was enough for us and we’ve been thoroughly enjoying our Couch men’s vegan wallets in our front pocket ever since. Besides, your wallet is safer from a pickpocket in your front pocket. But then again others of us here just keep em in the back and are perfectly happy so what can you do? To each his own. Whichever pocket you use, our wallets hold up to about 12 cards plus bills and receipts and still stay surprisingly slim…..If you’re worried about slimming your wallet, think first about getting rid of all the old junk you don’t need: receipts from a year ago, club cards you can just store the numbers in your phone, 23 business cards of people you’ll never call, JC Penney Cards…. you get the picture. Once you’re here you often realize it’s less about the wallet or pocket and more about the junk you’ve been hucking around.
All of this said some people have been asking us to leave the snap off, which we just started to do on our Vintage 80′s Mercedes Wallets by special request on the drop down. We like the security of a snap, but if you prefer your wallet with no snap enclosure you now have that as an option at Couch Guitar Straps with these wallets!
