The Black Reversed Oiled Horse ones. I'm still in the market for my first pair of A1923, so while oiled horse is no longer in the running because of the dye transfer, I'm wondering if his other shoes are also as bad.
I think brown & black clash more-so with the shoe/bag combo than the shoe/belt combo because the bag is so much bigger and in your face. A belt is fairly small, and often covered by a jacket. Much like black shoes aren't as versatile as brown shoes, the same goes for black bags.

It's not so much that I want a branded bag, it's that a particular bag will catch my eye with it's color/style that you can't find anywhere else. So it's either buy it from them, or not at all. I've been a big fan of what Frank Clegg is doing. I think my next bag will be from them.
So what luxury brands do create high quality products? It seems every fashion house out there has a $2000+ briefcase, and some of them have recently caught my eye (in particular Burberry & Dior). But since these brands don't really focus on leather goods, I'm wary I'd just be buying an very overpriced, outsourced, shoddy product.
