 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. 
 Especially since contrast red soles have existed since, oh, the 1700s. 
Order went through just now, so there was some kind of glitch. 
Everything except for black sold out. 
 Tungsten is super cheap (dollar-wise, not quality-wise). But it is a good gold substitute. 
Do people like or prefer non-hacking movements? I learned recently that the Patek Aquanaut is non-hacking, and I'm surprised that a new(-ish), modern watch would come out with a non-hacking movement, especially at Patek's price point. I get it if it's a historical movement of importance, but if not, why then?
