    they were cool in the 80s.
    they caught on in big the90s along with doc martin boots.
    by the mid nineties only clueless idiots wore them.
    i stopped wearing mine in 94, and i haven't lost my wallet once

    Had one when I was riding my Harley a lot

    I guess it was just part of the uniform. My wife had a job at the Harley shop as a bookkeeper, because we knew the owners. There was a big ass recession, and the H-D shop was in deep trouble. To pay her the wages they owed her, they gave her Harley parts at at employee discount. I cleaned up big time that Christmas---new chrome drag pipes, tune-up kits, T-shirts, etc., including a cool ass chain wallet. I carried it for years, but when I went to nursing school in 1993, I hung it up, and mothballed my scooter.

    I never lost my wallet either. BTW, the Harley guys I rode with all called it a "trucker's wallet." A friend of mine lost a pistol once in a bar, in the bathroom (he was wasted) but never his wallet. We went back later and asked the bartender "Hey, did you find a 9mm automatic in the head last night?" and he said (this is a true story, lol)

    "What brand?"

    My buddy, who was mortally embarrassed, and hung over as shit, mumbles "Smithanwesson."

    "What was that? Speak up, I can't hear you?"

    "Smith and Wesson."

    "I ought to fucking keep it. You assholes are not welcome in my bar any more. Don't come back."

    He slaps the pistol on the bar. No magazine.

    "Where's the magazine?"

    He puts the empty magazine down next to it.


    "I don't want to see any of you here again."

    We left. I felt bad. He was right. I never went back.

    Re: Had one when I was riding my Harley a lot

    heh, a similar thing happened to me at a Dennys... this was about a month after I passed out at the breakfast bar and dropped a full beer out of my pocket... it broke... anyway, I mainly stopped going to Dennys when I was loaded...

    *mine was just a cheesey Davis Industries .380...

    For Christ's sake, Heydrich, why are you shouting? This is a small forum. You're hurting my ears.
