<< Greetings Larry!
    I often carry an M6 with a pre-aspheric 35 Summicron in a suit
 jacket pocket.  It does not seem to distort my wardrobe noticeably,
 especially when a Skinny Tele-Elmarit and film are on the other side.  I
 purposely buy casual clothing with pockets large enough to carry my basic
 kit.  I hate camera bags and never carry one.  I strongly believe that one
 of the main reasons for using Leicas is their small size.  While I have
 ignored all of the many bag threads which have been spun over the years by
 this group, I believe they should be banished to the Bag Users Leica List.

 Anyone who can carry a Leica M (with attached lens) in a pocket has my 
 admiration. When I try to do that I usually walk with such a list that
 old ladies offer to help me cross the street.

HELLO ALL . I carry an M on the shoulder with the strap in the summer . In 
the winter , I carry it under a jacket , still with the strap . 
I hate camera bags too , because of ther lack of quick response . 
I've also carried leicas in the side pockets of my BDU's ( Battle Dress 
Uniforms ) .
But I would like to know if anyone has ever used a belt clip , and I'd like 
to see how it's made .
