Men don't usually wear a bag to carry things with so therefore they use a wallet which holds all the necessities they feel they need. Some men even have a chain that connects the wallet to a belt loop on their pants, they'll feel a tug if it falls or if someone is trying to steal it! have a nice day!

You must tell other man to do the same, chain make the wallet more safety and you can realize that the pocket still pretend in its right place.

I think that it's become a style now, so I am sure there are a lot of men who know about it. Some wallets even come with the chain attached.

hi dik_an! well i think it is because they don't like to bring bags with them, or at least that is the generally among men. but like my husband, even when he does bring a bag, his wallet still goes into his pocket. i think men find it easy to put it there and take it out each time. as for me, i am a woman, but i carry a men's type of wallet. however, i put it in the bag because i find it much too heavy on my pocket. oh, a thought just came to mind. well maybe subconsciously, putting the wallet on the back pocket makes the guys' behind look prominent and therefore attractive? and women don't like to put their wallets in pocket because it deforms their outfits. what dya think? take care and God bless you! happy mylotting! :D

I think so, that's why sometime they don't realize when the pocket gone! Hehe,,,but yes, some woman do the same as male because it's more simple. :D

i think because the size and shape of our wallet is different from theirs. the pocket is design like men's wallet. so they can put it there.. if the pocket's design is just like women's wallet, then we'll put ours in the pocket too.. it's rational, isn't it?? hohohoo :)

As a woman i actually hate carrying a purse. I'm more apt to take the cards and money i want to use and stick them in my back pocket. I find with a purse i set it down and forget it or that my hands are too full to carry things.

I think because it is set in such, usually pants man there is a pocket in the back, which is used to keep the wallet, and wallet size is usually in accordance with the pocket. But if I were in the vulnerable areas, in order not to be taken by pilferer I put my wallet in bag.

Strange question. Men do not generally carry purses like women. Some men do carry a backpack, but the wallets are still in their pockets. I am a female and I do not like carrying my wallet in my bag, because if I lost my bag or left it somewhere I will lose my money and other items I have in the wallet. I rather carry my money in my pocket, that way I know that it is on me and do not have a bulky bag to carry around. It would really look strange to see men walking around with purses just to have somewhere to put their wallets.

Well it's the only place I have to carry it. I don't carry a bag like a woman. I either carry my wallet in my hand, in my mouth or in my pocke. Art

I'm not sure where else I could put it dik_an! If I were to hold it in my hand all the time, I'd lose it for sure. And it's not a common thing for men to be carrying bags like women do either. I can say though, that whenever I am working and have my laptop bag with me, my wallet is usually in this bag and not in my pocket.

guys don't have the habit of carrying any bags at all like women does. usually guys go out with just their clothes and nothing else so they or i mean we put our wallets on the back pockets of our pants. we don't carry anything else besides cash.

It's because men usually don't have a bag with them, and even if they do, they find it easier to take a wallet out of a pocket than look for it deep in the bag. Men prefer easy finding-knowing where things are, no like women who prefer nice handbag full of crap where wallet is mixed in other 100 items:-)
