Put it in a brief case or mens shaving bag. Even a belly pouch which in Europe I thought was acceptable.

Every performer from UK always say English people wear sport coat as standard clothing. Just get a good sport coat with breast pockets on both sides and the lower left ticket pocket. It holds a deck perfectly.

You questions all depends on the magic you perform and the length of performing. Also age, style and so many factors it is not possible to answer your question the more I think about it.

My close up act usually consists of the "usual props." cards (two packs), coins (half ddollar is largest), sponge balls, sponge bunnies, hot rod, a lemon (for bill in lemon), sharpie pen thru anythin, plus a regular sharpie, string or rope, scissors, knife through coat, thumb tip and d'lites.

I tend to do most of my magic stading up, and I am not too keen on taking a close up case to each table. so how do I get round this? I seen a few waistcoats advertised, but was wondering what advice you could give me before I go and blow all my money on one!

All my jackets are wool and I have found it to be the best material. For certain occasions when I need more "storage space" I have had an accesory made. It is basically just a piece of black synthetic material with pockets sewn to it. I just attach it to the lining with a few safety pins and have 6 extra pockets-but it wont take anything too heavy.
