i work for a major marketing and forecasting company for mens fashion, and I can say, without a doubt, that in the next 12-18 months, wallet chains will be as big of a meme as minimalist white sneakers were. Very soon you will start seeing popular musicians and such wearing them, and it will "organically" explode into a huge trend.
it hasn't started yet
just wait for it
What the fuck is the point of this chain? If it's connected to something located in his front left pocket, it's actually making it EASIER to steal because a thief can quickly unhook that from behind and yank while running. This guy is wearing it completely wrong.
word, wallet chain is gonna blow up because a wallet chain hanging off ur pants looks vaguely similar to le helmut lang bondage straps hanging off a jacket. in 6 months u can look at represent or stampd or whatever other shitty streetwear brand is cashing in on helmut's meme status by making ugly bombers with straps and they'll be making wallet chains too
nah H&M employees in China with etsy pages would already be selling them if you were right
also they haven't shown up in any Japanese (ie THE emerging fashion market) sites/magazines, which I follow super closely, outside of the american traditional mags, which, again, is a very small subculture
milspec and campcore this winter, athleisure this summer, next year everybody will be talking about tech fabrics
accessories need a lot longer to come back
