    Question Fashion Police: How/where do you carry your cell phone?

    I've heard a couple comments recently about how clipping your cell phone to your belt/waist is a fashion faux pas…or even, nerdy.

    I'm not real concerned about it myself, but I find it odd in so much as this is a practical way to carry your cell phone. What is the alternative? Women can throw theirs in a purse, but what options do guys have?

    I get that sporting a mullet was in style at one time, but now is not. In the end, it is like many things that come and go with the times. But there is no practical reason to continue have to have a mullet hair cut….or wear white pants in December….or white socks with a suit…etc. It is just not fashionable to do so. But in the end attaching your phone to your waist is practical. How else is a guy (not wearing cargo pants/shorts with large/extra pockets) supposed to carry his cell phone?

    Pocket, if you clip it to your belt you might as well strap on a fanny pack and throw it in there.

    I wear pants or shorts with pockets to accommodate my cell phone, and I have the largest smartphone on the market too the EVO.

    Clip it to my belt for work. Could care less that I look like a geek/dork or whatever.

    When I'm not working I'll just throw it in a pocket in my cargo shorts. I assume cargo shorts are probably also behind the times.

    Unless you're carrying one of these I don't see how it wouldn't fit in your front pocket. Or maybe you wear incredibly tight jeans?

    Some people can't wear jeans to work. In addition, I think skinny jeans may be back in.

    Re: Fashion Police: How/where do you carry your cell phone?

    I take the fashion risk of wearing mostly cargo shorts and pants and always put it in a pocket.

    When I'm not wearing those, it usually goes in a front pocket. When I don't have pockets, I generally have to carry around a backpack or bag of some sort and it goes in there.

    …and the lump in your front pocket looks better? (spare the obvious joke here) It looks tacky IMO especially if you're wearing nice dress pants (which I do most days for work). Also, how's that comfortable with jeans?

    Fine, but pants of any kind should be able to accommodate a cell phone shouldn't they? Maybe not leather, OP do you wear leather pants a lot?

    How big is your phone that you can see a visible lump? We must be talking about a 10 year old Nokia here, maybe that's the confusion.

    Re: Fashion Police: How/where do you carry your cell phone?

    I carry my wallet in my front pocket along with my personal phone (Palm Pre) my work phone (HTC Incredible) and car keys. Sometimes I get crazy and throw in a chapstick or pen or gum.
    Needless to say, no I am not happy to see you, its my personal items.

    Re: Fashion Police: How/where do you carry your cell phone?

    This is seriously so dumb. The only reason why I don't wear the belt clip is my love handles make it uncomfy. Seriously, though - I don't know if there's anything more annoying than the fashion police. If it weren't for my wife, I wouldn't see the problem with wearing my comfortable brown belt with my black shoes. That and I don't get the problem women have with wearing black shoes with a blue suit (women refuse to do it - they "have" to have blue shoes" or why you can't wear white shoes after Labor Day...

    Re: Fashion Police: How/where do you carry your cell phone?

    I would prefer the clip on at work but when I got the last new phone, and new holster thingie I kept knocking it out and busted up my phone. I just gave up and it goes in my pocket now. I didnt ever sport the holster outside of work, though. I'm not terribly concerned with what the fashionable think. I'm old enough to be out of style cause what I see 'stylish' people wearing I usually think looks ********.


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.
