    The fountain pen rides on my shirt collar and the ballpoint is a modified Sharpie Mini (steps on my blog). :)

    I carry a Zebra Compact rolled up one of those small glasses wiping pieces of cloth in my pocket. The fabric grips my pocket and keeps the pen from falling out, even when upside down!

    You have only one pocket? LOL.

    I usually carry a Zebra F-701 clipped in my LFP. Nothing in my shirt pocket. Don't know why but nowadays, I hate carrying anything there.

    Honestly? Everywhere. Being without a pen in my world is unthinkable so I tend to have more than one on my person. One in all my jackets (don't take them out unless I use them), in my bags, car, left-side pockets, both front and back, etc.

    I have carried a pen everyday since either junior high or high school. I keep it in my left front pocket. After dwindling my collection, I have three pens that get carried: my first and still most carried, Benchmade 1100-1 with Fisher medium point, Surefire EWP-04 all black (my work pen), and this goes into my left arm pen pocket (uniform), and the last is my newest acquisition, a Surefire EWP-01. I carry this to work everyday as well. It goes into my It right cargo pocket, and it gets carried sometime outside of work.

    The fact of the matter is, is that the Benchmade is the only pen to never have come off of or out of my pocket. The spring steel clip is amazing. Mine is marred up and worn looking, but I love it and couldn't ever get rid of it.

    As i make my living from the written word, I always keep at least two pens close at hand. I have one or two in all my bags and backpacks as well as in most of my jackets and coats (preferably clipped in the right inside pocket). When i wear cargo pants, i clip one in the left cargo pocket.

    I lose or misplace pens all the time, so I don't dare to carry anything fancy. Also, I've had two shirts ruined by leaky fountain pens, so i don't carry these on person anymore. My laptop bag has a nice little plastic Rotring fountain pen in it, but that's the only really good pen I take out of the house. In most bags and jackets I keep a Pilot V Ball Grip (best disposable pens I've ever used) + a giveaway ballpoint pen as backup.

    My primary pen is carried in a heavy leather pouch in my front trouser pocket so I don't lose it. My backup pen is carried similarly in my other front trouser pocket in the event that the ink is unexpectedly depleted from the primary pen

    In a digital world, I still use both daily.

    I just keep mine clipped in the corner of my front left jeans pocket. My pen of choice is a Parker Stainless Jotter with a Fisher Space Pen refill, and I keep a Sharpie there next to it. If I'm wearing cargo shorts I will carry them clipped at the front edge of my left cargo pocket since the slash pockets on most of my shorts are really too shallow to carry things in.

    I have had this backfire on me before, though, as the Parker clip likes to catch on things and then bend the clip out of shape. This leads to me bending it back and eventually to the clip breaking off. Haven't found a way around this yet, so I just live with it.
