Tired of Being Costanza...

Do you feel like this when you sit down or try to pull out your wallet?

Yeah, I was too... I couldn't find a back pocket wallet with space for cards, IDs, Money, and receipts. I had one before it was made by Kenneth Cole. I actually had two of them, I wore those wallets out. But then out of nowhere Kenneth Cole didn't make them anymore and I couldn't find it anywhere. I found some other ones that looked similar but they always fell apart quick or when I got them they weren't close to being the same.

Then one day my regular Fossil bi-fold wallet was just too much for my dress pants back pocket and I barely had anything anything in it. So I looked around on the internet again in search of that Kenneth Cole wallet, but instead I stumbled on this Royce Leather Double ID Money Clip Wallet on Overstock.com. Then I read the reviews and I decided to try it out.  I looked like my Kenneth Cole Wallet but with an extra fold.  The reviews were great and I was sold.

I got the brown one, and so far I love it. It has enough storage, plus the ID Display on the front and on the back, and its very thin (with or without money in it).  I keep receipts in one clip until I balance my checkbook, and I keep my money in another clip.  I have cards in every slot and IDs and 2 other cards (insurance cards and what not) in both of the ID windows.  Its not so slim like a front pocket wallet that I have to keep patting my pocket to make sure its there, and its not so fat that I want to take it out of my pocket when I'm sitting down for a long time.  It seems like it fits in my back pocket perfectly not matter what I have in it or what pants I have on.  Also in my opinion, at $26, is wasn't that expensive either.

I'm not trying to sell it to you, I'm just trying to help you out if you are having wallet problems like George did up there.


Perfect Fit: Summertime Fine...My Latest, My Latest & My Greatest...

Summertime Fine...My Latest, My Latest & My Greatest...

No, this time I'm not talking about my woman, I'm referring to my Spring/Summertime tradition and my new edition.  If you know me then you know that I usually have some sort of hat on, fitted, kangol, soggy pimp hat (prom), cowboy hat, straw hat, Raiden (from Mortal Kombat) hat from Kings Dominion, or whatever I feel fits for the moment.  But the past few years I've been buying a White Sox & a Nationals fitted hat yearly (if you wear them as often as I do they will only last a year) but also adding a new alternative hat from either of the teams.  This years hat, Nationals New Era "59 Fifty MLB Graphite", was the last that they had in stock and it was in my size. I had to get it.  Not to mention its in my favorite color combination being that I grew up a Bulls fan and I went to Suitland High School Red & Black aren't strangers to my closet.  However I do feel inclined to find a certain pair of J's (Jordans) to go with this hat perfectly.  I will be finding a reason to wear this hat as much as possible, but not too much because I usually try to make my "alternates" last me 2 or 3 seasons.
Above are my yearly usuals.  I've been rocking the White Sox hat since Elementary, first it was a Hip-Hop thing, then in 6th Grade my Mom met my Step Father and his cousin is Frank Thomas. So thanks to a few signed baseball cards and other things "The Big Hurt" sent me I have been a White Sox fan ever since.  As for the Nats hat, well its a symbol of my hometown like the Yankees cap is in the five boroughs. I've been rocking this hat from the moment DC got the team and even though the team hasn't fully blossomed yet I'm rooting for them in every game (except against the White Sox).

Below here are my "alternates" from previous years.  Last year I actually bought two, I was looking for the Nationals hat in Dodger colors because of a few shirts that I just bought so the Nats New Era "59Fifty MLB C-Dub" was perfect, but I didn't expect to see this throwback White Sox New Era "59Fifty MLB Cooperstown" hat in the style that I remember as a kid and have baseball cards of players wearing it, I couldn't pass up on it.
The hat from the year before that was a little different from the ones that came to follow, as you can see one year I went with a football hat to rep for my favorite team the 49ers.  I had recently lost my regular 49ers hat and I needed a new one, so I went with this Mitchell & Ness Alternative Logo Throwback just to switch things up, I've only had a few outfits that I've been able to rock this with, but honestly no hat fits better than a New Era...no offense.

...and just as a shout out to two great songs from two different genre's in music, which I used to create the title to this blog.  Teddy Pendergrass "My Latest, My Greatest Inspiration" followed by J.Cole "In the Morning".  You gotta enjoy good music!
