Toronto menswear brand creates holster for your phone

Posted by Natalia Manzocco / June 12, 2014

ld west holster torontoGentlemen: Fed up with trying to wedge a cell phone and a wallet into tight jeans, or having all that stuff drag down your pockets? The fellas of LD West, a new Toronto-based fashion brand, have come up with a rather unorthodox solution: the LD West holster (yep, just like a gun holster). It's worn over the shoulders, suspender-style, and features a pocket for your phone and a built-in wallet.

While the leather contraption (which comes in black, brown and tan finishes) might make you look like an off-duty cop, the holster seems to disappear pretty seamlessly under a jacket; just slide your wallet and phone in nonchalantly, like the smooth, smooth customer you are. If you want to keep your (credit) cards close to your chest, the holster ($119.99) is available at Gotstyle and on the company's web store.

Fed-up with pockets? Put on a conspicuous sex harness instead!

Everything a beta male needs to approximate what a wearing a gun would look like, if he approved of guns. Which he doesn't, of course.

This is insane.

A guy i know from high school in Mississauga about 20 years ago already did this exact same thing.

Shane Lawson, if you are seeing this. Why didn't you trademark this shit?!?!?!

ya. this was done with men's wallets about 20 years ago. They had a holster on one side for id's etc and the other side for your cell ( aka clamshell phone ).

Old idea re-hashed, but not had.

Where's the little pocket for one's monacle ? :o

This is not a new idea. This was featured on the office UK 10+ years ago.

This is a really great concept! They made it better than whatever has been created before. I see everyone starting to wear this and it looks great.. I would purchase this

Ahh yeah looks great. So you can walk around and pretend your on CSI. Come on Bro you're in your 30's now you don't need to be walking around pretending to be a bad ass gangster. We accept you as you are, you don't need no holster.

HOLY FUDGE!!!! I think we just discovered the new CHAIN WALLET of the new millennium. Awesome.

yeah, not a new concept at all. People used to rock those at the guvernment in the late 90's. It's probably not a trend that should make a come back.

Great way to get blown away by the trigger happy cops around here.

I've had one of those for nearly 20 years, in leather. It was made by a company called iHolster. Still works great!
