Reader Mail seeks to answer life’s sartorial curiosities and other perplexing material issues.
What is a gentleman to do with his keys? I have two different keys for the home, two more for work, a car key, and a key to the bicycle lock. I have always kept them on a carabiner, but if they escape my back pocket, the resulting noises are akin to a janitorial mating call. I’m afraid that a gentleman ought to have a better solution than a carabiner, particularly for occasions requiring more formal attire. Any insight?

Great question, thanks for writing in. It is the little things, like keychains, that will stylishly distinguish you from your contemporaries and that can elicit the quiet victory of “where’d you get that keychain?”
