Classy chain wallet.

Is there such a thing? I mean where the chain isn't cheap hardened steel, crappily polished hunk of junk. Something that looks nice? I'm going to be carrying alot of dough and bank cards/CCs in my wallet, figured the security of a chain would be nice, also my current wallet is falling apart so why not.

Just get a big Mr. T style blingin' gold chain and use it on any old chain wallet. Instant classy upgrade.

the classy ones have a clip so you can attach it to your nipple ring.

I thought for sure based on the title of this thread it was going to be a general one about oxymorons.

also: classy chain wallet = purse.

So far the only wallet that has spiked my interest is the pink unicorn one.

I'm very tempted to punch a hole in my plain leather wallet, put on velcro and add that nickel chain to it.

At least have the decency to put a grommet in the punched leather to keep it from tearing out.

Tuck the chain in the pocket with the wallet. That way nobody will see it, and you need not worry about classy.

You know, you can just put the wallet in your pocket. Assuming you don't wear pants sized for the World's Largest Man, it's not going to fall out.

Chains are for pocket watches.

A Prince Albert helps ensure a chain wallet doesn't go missing as well.
