Topic: Extra pockets / case within a coat

Whilst in blackpool I saw an old guy selling many second hand tricks, effects, accesories, and clothing. I passed up the opportunity to buy a superb piece of kit that would have solved all my problems!

it was an extra bit of cloth that would be sewn into the inside of your jacket. the cloth would have around 20 custom made pockets, ideal for thump tips, thimbles, coins, cards, even a long thin pouch for your wand.

hope I am making sense, but where can I get one of these?

You are probably talking about a topit and there are many sources for them.

Michael Ammar has a video and/or a patern for one;


Also Ramon Galindo in Austin, TX markets one;


You can just do a search for topit at your favorite dealer's website as well.

Hope that helps

It's not a topit. It really doesn't have a name. It's a utility device with multiple pockets akin to those canvas "thingy's" that you can buy to hang up behind your bedroom door to store socks, shoes and other assundries. What your looking for is obviously smaller and probably was black cloth.

Your best bet it to draw out what you remember are best you can and then find a seamstress who can make it for you. Your drawing will act like a pattern and this isn't difficult to make.

Vmendoza knows what I'm on about.

you can get shoe holders you place on the back of your door. same as this, but for cards, and inside a jacket.

You may also have a look to pocket organizers.
Carl Andrews sells one ("The Pocket-pocket") that fits in a trousers pocket.
Also available, the Klamm pocket organizer.

After I get my topit sewn in, I plan on adding something like this to my jacket as well. I am glad you brought this up.
