    Pinhole eyeglasses, eh? Was this made specifically for that, or something you re-purposed?

    I tried it recently, I've discovered that you need to be thinner than me to carry it off :)

    Inner Prop... short version... I broke my glasses the day before leaving for USAF basic in 1970... and went through the academic portion of basic looking through the small hole made by curling my index finger over my thumb...this trick was from a Scoutmaster (WWII OSS Officer) from many years before... so the card was repurposed ID card... best diameters for me was 3/32" and 5/32"...

    Not really. I'm 6'2", 250 lbs and they look good on me. You just have to position the straps closer to midline, use "X" instead of "Y" suspenders, and DON'T wear a belt. IIRC, the correct way position of the front clips is just outboard of the crease, which tend to be fairly close to the midline anyway.

    I found a 4-leaf clover when I was about 9, and Mom (who was a second-grade schoolteacher for 20 years) laminated it for me. That old good luck charm has outlasted ~25 years of wallets.

    I've tried both X and Y, they just seem to 'frame' my belly too much. I'm 6' and 260. I don't usually look fat due to very broad shoulders and carrying myself well but with the braces it seemed to bring attention to my stomach. I use button braces rather than clips so I'm using the trousers positioning. Do you think I should redo the buttons and try again?

    Depending on your definition of carry, I suppose these count:

    Some wristbands I was given during my time in the Gaeltacht (Irish speaking part of Ireland) this year. I finally understood the personal significance of the Irish language to me, as well as making some really good friends and having a good time. The purple one says "love for the beach" and the green one says "respect."

    Hospital cleaner? I had an interview for that job last year and was told I'd need to buy my own door stops.

    Not as awesome as a flashbang, but on the weekends I carry a Montana marker. I used to write in my high school days, and this kind of just stuck. Even though I havent wrote on anything for years. The grey tape is so the ink wont leak.
