for me a wallet should be something you splash out on.

why keep your money in something cheap?

I've got a few expensive wallets...

Louis Vuitton...approx 120 quid
Mandarinda Duck...approx 50 quid

Had a prada card holder for nights out what was 60 quid, but lost it [:)]

You have to run for a bus. Thats whats wrong with it. buy a ten quid waller instead of a 120 quid one. Buy a few 15 quid shirts, 40 quid jeans instead of 50 and 250 and you could afford not to have to tolerate public transport.

PinkPonce Posted on 22/01/2008 22:29

I'll rephrase it Blain...

I've lost more running for a bus prior to stopping using public transport...

In fact, if you're gonna be funny about it, i'll use the

It's difficult to find a decent wallet which doesn't get scruffy or even disintegrate within a year. Most of them aren't deep enough to hold 20 notes either, so the notes get all tatty at the edge.

I don't see the problem in paying 33 for something which will last years, when people think nothing of pouring alcohol costing 20 down their necks in an evening.

I don't have a wallet so I just keep it in the pocket of my 150 jeans.

PinkPonce Posted on 23/01/2008 08:38
33 for a wallet

Hand In Glove:

Do you REALLY think I would lie about something so trivial on here? Have a word with yourself mate.

120 for a LV wallet isn't bad...Said wallet has lasted me for a good 4 years So far. I don't see what the big deal is over that.

And i reiterate my point that the 120 quid - in my eyes is much better spent on 3 bags of sniff on a saturday night.

I have different wallets for different occasions. Sometimes on a night out, i'll just put my money in my "condom pocket" of the jeans..

A good man should always have minimum 3 wallets though in my eyes:

Normal Day to Day wallet = Louis Vuitton wallet, Smaller, lots of cards, holds money.

Work Wallet = Mandarinda Duck - Its a longer wallet but thinner with less card space (perfect for suit jacket pocket) Also holds my passport which is obviously ideal for me with work.

Evening Wallet = Smaller wallet can hold 2, max 3 cards and a small slot for notes.

Aye go on then PP. I don't use wallets and if I did I wouldn't have any problems spending a lot of money on one, however, there is no way in this world I would have a LV wallet as that just screams poser. I have more class than that and don't need to shout from the tree tops how much money I spend on such things.

king hellfire... Mandarinda Duck is a designer of clothes , accessories etc.

David watts... money clips are good for money.. i generally carry other things such as cards in wallets and therefore it doesnt suffice. PS are you related to Curly? Not Ms Curly... Curly Watts?

Jonny Thunder.. fair point [:D]

"And i reiterate my point that the 120 quid - in my eyes is much better spent on 3 bags of sniff on a saturday night."

have i read that correctly? you'd rather spend it on sniff?

not judging but am i correct in thinking you meant spent on the wallet than the nose?

king_hellfire Posted on 23/01/2008 20:51

I was wondering if you had made a spelling mistake because when i googled Mandarinda Duck it couldn't find any results , instead it came up with Mandarina Duck.

I too have a Paul Smith wallet. It was also 120.

My previous wallet was also the same.

They are totally different and so much better.

Paul Smith make lovely accessories and jeans, and knitwear, but their t shirts often leave a lot to be desired.

I wouldn't dream of paying over $15:00 for a wallet, that's 7.5 quid !

No one else bats an eyelid.

Tim Westwood went to a private school. My mate Ben went to the same school.

Presumably you mean - it looks better to me? Because the rest of us don't notice.
If that's the case then fair enough, but don't confuse that with the rest of the world even noticing.

Onthemap... i cant help feeling that we have been here before, and if the above post wasnt a dig at me, then i'm an engineer (god help me)

If you are in a position to buy the clothes / accessories / hair styles you want, then the next man in the streets opinion doesn't matter.

I do this for myself, and myself only. No one else. I wouldn't take advice from my family, and therefore certainly not an incompetent engineer...

As for your comment:

"no one else notices the 80 wallets, the big belts or the hair do's.

No one else bats an eyelid."

Well, you are aware of my username, and the way it came about. You noticed me, others noticed me...So , i reckon people did bat an eyelid kid... I didn't ask you too though. You just did.

Anyone else?

Thing is with on the map, he is a typical engineer... he won't listen to the opinion of ANYONE else and is so blinkered in his own mindset that he will always think HE is right...

As for diesel - not sure how much fake stuff there is going about... best of going somewhere like psyche, checking some real pairs out (i.e internal tags / stitching round the pockets) and comparing them with yours when u get home!

1. I spend my money on what I like
2. They are nowhere near the same

I paid eighty quid for an alligator skin wallet a few years ago in America, a bit extravagant I suppose, especially as it still went into the washing machine by mistake a few times and eventually was nicked from my pocket in Pamplona.

I bought a chopped off Alligators head at the same time for about a tenner. It's not quite as practical for storing your credit cards in, but it's better for teasing the dog.

Diesel jeans are good..

I like DSquared, Evisu for the Denim and the vintage Levis label... but they can be extortionately expensive... but WELL worth it for the quality of japanese leather

Cheap jeans are not good enough.. Simple as that..

Think i'm gonna buy a new wallet at the weekend...

I'll think of a use for it (i.e work, play, weekend, nightout)

I think that's alright, provided it's a nice one.

I have a very nice Hugo Boss wallet at the moment, it was a present mind, I didn't buy it, but I know it was 80 (because someone forgot to remove the price inside the packaging!). I'm interested as to how this wallet holds up, my last one was a Next one and only lasted about 18 months or so.

I think it's nice to have certain more expensive items, although I just can't afford to have an entire wardrobe comprised of designer clobber. I especially agree with regards to jeans, the quality is so much different. A good pair of jeans last years, although most of mine are the cheaper ones (topman, river island and H&M) which tend to fall to bits after a few months and need replacing. I'd love some Paul Smith ones but can't justify the money at the moment.

PinkPonce Posted on 24/01/2008 07:48
33 for a wallet

you're right..

for people to have the odd nice expensive thing is good i think...

acessories, i always splash out on..

I cant stand cheap ties or things like that...

but a wallet is something i think should be classy and something slightly more "waring" than one from the indoor market...

I suppose I'd better add my wallet to the thread s I started it. It's a cnavass England wallet with velcro to keep it secure. Although the velcro is hangning off and the iside of the wallet is ripped. So I suppose I'd better buy a new one. Right where was that 33 wallet again?

33 for a wallet is fair enough. If said wallet will last you a couple of years and is fairly smart what difference does it make?

140 on a wallet is retarded - you think you look the business, the poeple you bought it from were laughing at you as you left the store and 90% of the people who see you with a "designer" wallet will think your a metrosexual w*nker.

Don't get me wrong, i have nothing against people paying a little bit extra for good quality.

100 - 150 is fine for a top notch pair of jeans or 100 for a top quality shirt.
The problem is when your paying that kind of money for something thats been made is a sweatshop in Pakistan by a 9 year old.

Where if you took the basge of the product you just paid 100 for you'd struggle to get 2 for.

I get the impression that The Pink Ponce would actually spend a stupid amount of money on a low quality product just because of the label.

His quote that a man should have 3 wallets is, to be frank, pathetic. Does he really believe that other people pay THAT much attention to him?
Vain and attention seeking i suspect The Pink Ponce was a lot closer to his mother during childhood then the average.

Ok, here goes.

Critical Bill - As, expenditure, cost and value are essential aspects of my daily job yes money does form a fundamental part of my daily discussions..... But once again, you could not fail to take the bait. You are one sad man.

Marlon - I didn't take over the thread kidda. I merely commented on your "opinion" with my own. It just so happens that the majority on here seem to be so blinkered to the opinion of others that I made more of an input. YOu're just jealous that your thread ended up in yet another Pink Ponceathon.

As for the 1, 2, 3, 4 comment... I'm not surprised that that's where you stopped... The enxt one is Number FIVE son.. Ok.. Good lad...

Don't fall into Shiitical Bills way of judging a quantity surveyor. My role is more along the lines of cost management against progress value and productivity... You have no idea of the role. It would be like me commenting on shopping in the officers club - Unfortunately I don't comment on things i have no knowledge on... I can do a cracking post on Vivienne Westwood, Selfridges and the like though - if you desire.

BoroBorn - Please explain why it is pathetic. And once again, let me explain, son, that things like that are not done for the benefit of ANYONE else. Get that into your head. And anyone else who doesn't understand.


"I get the impression that The Pink Ponce would actually spend a stupid amount of money on a low quality product just because of the label"

The reason i spend more money on the majority of things i buy, is simply because of the SUPERIOR quality.

I bet you queue for the sales in the town don't you.

Seriously - This board has some good characters, but some of you... Dear me. Get a life for goodness sake!

Anyway on a lighter note, just had a post tender hand over meeting for some more work within the Airport... Bring on the airmiles.

I only talk about work whilst at work...

The last thing on my mind is talking shop outside of working hours...

I just find it hard to believe that a man in your position would feel it necessary or even attempt to engage in a slanging match over career.

Marlon.. Its got nothing to do with me, it was merely a question. You didn't need to answer, and you chose not to. But your refusal to explain your position / role, would lead me to assume that its just as important as vinnys.

Johnny - its not about the rich list. its about enjoyment, happiness, fulfillment. of which all 3 apply in my case.

vinny - you seriously must be joking.

You come on here and take the P***, call my job and i hit you with a couple of cheeky posts and all off a sudden i'm job snobbish!

Have a word...

Fact of the matter is, I've got mates who are also in dead end jobs, but I respect them and they're good friends.


I'm joking.... I couldn't care less what anyone does for a living. As long as it pays the bills and people are happy. Fair play to anyone..

But if you can't take the crack don't give it out.

Marlon - "Ponce your poser's wallet would struggle to hold my wages."

Why's that? Are they paying you in pound coins??

Mr Ponce.
"BoroBorn - Please explain why it is pathetic. And once again, let me explain, son, that things like that are not done for the benefit of ANYONE else. Get that into your head. And anyone else who doesn't understand."

You have three wallets for you? Why? If you only do that for you then i ask why?

In my 27 years on this planet i have never known anyone need any more then one wallet. I have known millionaires and people on the dole and they all only had 1 wallet.

So if this is soley as you claim for your benifit then you may have a shopping addiction or perhaps a hoarding disorder?

Of course then this may all just be a windup on your part and if that is the case, carry on.

It was your your derogatory comments that you once made about the tradesmen that has made you look like a job snob.
My line is strong enough for any of your bites.

PinkPonce Posted on 24/01/2008 16:53
33 for a wallet


" You have three wallets for you? Why? If you only do that for you then i ask why? "

Well, seeing as you are so clearly interested, I hope this helps settle it:

I have 3 wallets:

Wallet No.1: Normal Sized Every day wallet

Louis Vuitton, Standard size, lots of card slots and pouches. Its obviously bulky though when full of cards and money which is no good for work.

Pro's: All cards are available:
Cons: Can only really be worn in jeans pocket as can be quite bulky.

Wallet No.2: Work Wallet

Mandarina Duck, check the link earlier. A larger but thinner wallet, which is perfect for me to use for work. It only has 4 or 5 card slots and one large side "pouch" which I can fit my passport in for when commuting. Because i only need a couple of cards for work its ideal, as its thinness makes it perfect for suit jackets.

Pro's: Great for my suit pockets for work. Not bulky and doesn't make suit lose shape which bulky ones do to the inside pockets.

Cons: Too Long for jeans pockets really, not enough card slots of all cards.

Wallet No.3: Night wallet

Small thin, wallet, with 2 card slots either side of a slot for money. About 3 inch by 2 inch and about think. Great for nights out, as fits in front pocket no problem, rather than carrying wallet in back pocket.

Pro's: As above, fits in front pocket and means you don't risk losing all cards , driving licience etc on nights out as you only havfe 1 max 2 cards.

Cons: Can't think of one.

Hope that explains and makes you understand MY reasons. Pick faults if you want, but i know there is a valid reason for them all.

Ahh I see where you are coming from...and it was on the pointless job thread!..

But if you remember correctly, I explained my comments a few threads later.

The line you are on about related to QS's being the most hated men behind health and safety officers on sites...

My comment was "the scummy operatives on site who should have stuck in at school showing a total lack of respect for H&S"...

You quite clearly took this out of context. Given that we had just suffered the 2nd tragic death of a worker here on site, your comments were not well received about H&S and I personally took exception to it.

Given, that throughout the duration of this project, there has only been 2 deaths (which is still 2 too many) when the industry norms and predictions claimed there would be 10-12 deaths given the hours worked - H&S here has been exceptional... HOWEVER, it is when operatives, and people like yuorself pay total disregard to the people who are making our construction sites safe.

Losing someone who is personally close through accidents on building sites would not be a very nice thing...

therefore my comments were solely regarding respect, the lack of it, and the negative comments YOU posted.

YOu in fact replied to that comment on the aforementioned thread, and to use it again now, is frankly VERY distasteful.

Don't be back-pedalling too fast, you'll fall off.
*Puts rod away*

As someone who knew someone who was working on T5 I found your comments out of order.
Anyway, they don't work there any more as they are now working on a blue-book site.

PinkPonce Posted on 24/01/2008 17:15

As someone who saw first hand the effects of tragic accidents on site I find your comments truly disturbing.

BTW think you made a mistake: You should have said

*puts colouring in pens away*

Anyway - we are moving away from the point... Wallets anyone?
