Would a Mission Wallet be too bulky for formal attire?



Mine has an SAK Pioneer, Peak 1xAAA LED, Leatherman Squirt, ID, cash and a small ferro rod.

For me the difference between formal attire and casual is whether I clip the Spyderco to my pants pocket like normal, or drop it all the way down inside the pocket.

Several of the items in my knife drawer have come to me as gifts for being a groomsman, and at least two of them have outlasted the marriages.

For me formal would mean putting a cummerbund over the knife clipped to my trouser waistline and carrying the Mission Wallet as is. Haven't had to do formal in years.

Don't forget a good "church gun". I prefer a PPK for formal occasions. It was good enough for Bond ;-)

Katarin, I've been told that that EDC is one of the purposes of the double-barrelled slingshot. A lady I used to work with had impressive cleavage and carried a wide variety of items daily.

However, if your gown doesn't allow for that, wear the nylons that don't have the panty attachment but are held up by the wide elastic band, and you can tuck a few things in there, carefully placed (driver's license, cash, ATM/credit card, credit card knife, etc). Put the bulkier stuff, like the derringer, compact and the lipstick in the little bag. Wrap a silk hankie around the derringer to avoid getting any oil on the bag lining.

A friend of mine says you CAN tuck the derringer in the top of the leg band, but you have to be careful about checking the bulk vs. the dress design. Also, it's not all that comfortable for an entire evening, it can work out during strenuous dancing, and can give a gentleman a surprise when dancing cheek to cheek.

I too have a few dress knives (again, small Buck knives) given to me for being a Groomsman - One of them I have a plan for - My Godson's Dad gave me one of them - and with his Dad's OK - I intend to "gift it back" as a dress knife when my Godson gets hitched...
