Trip First and second pictures are my entry. Third was just for fun (since how hard is it to go from using a navy jacket separate to using it as part of the suit with which it was intended to be used?)
@rtc Those two made waaayyyyyyy more than 100k. Also both New Yorkers, oddly enough @Noodles Work experience probably helps. But so does teaching experience. And the most important thing, unfortunately, is knowing the right people. But you're right. Mothers want results and it is super, super competitive. One of the reasons I tried to stay design side as much as possible.
Apgu/Cheongdam is where the real money is at (teaching Korean-American kids AP subjects). Daechi is good for decent pay, but you'll struggle to get more than 70 an hour there. Yeah, another guy (Korean-American U Maryland CP) and myself were the only two people I knew of that went to 2 tier schools and were still able--barely--to keep up with the Ivy League guys* I got into the game late in my stay in Seoul. I wish I had started much earlier. Rural areas...yeah, you'll...
I was one of two white people I knew earning that kind of money (the other is also on SF btw). Everyone else was Korean American.
I and a number of people I know made six figures in teaching and other education related careers in Seoul* And we didn't have to pay taxes on most of it ^_^ * It took a lot of work, a lot of luck, and a lot of networking, especially if you don't have an Ivy League degree. Very low six figures was probably the max I'd ever be able to make doing what I did there since I didn't graduate from an Ivy League school. I capped out pretty quickly.
I don't mind blue on blue. There is also this: http://www.kentwang.com/pocket-squares/shinagawa.html   It's often my go to for green ties, especially if I'm in a hurry.   Also these would work http://www.kentwang.com/pocket-squares/departure-herald.html http://www.kentwang.com/pocket-squares/edo-castle.html
I like blue; I am buying another blue jacket this week. I like consistency. I take Lexapro. It helps with OCD. Here is my album. I wish the framing were identical in each picture. The framing isn't identical in each picture. And the album is missing a few jackets.   Fin
REVIEW Like Butchy, I was given bag to review, their weekender. I had hoped to do a nice photoshoot for it, but my schedule and weather did not cooperate.   In brief: The bag is great. Would I have purchased it myself? Probably not--a weekender has never been something I've really needed (so it isn't a reflection of the bag itself). But after handling this bag, I'm comfortable with saying that I'll be purchasing a briefcase from Vincero in the fall when they do their...
Despite my earlier statements, I ended up voting yes. Vincero mentioned earlier that others have pointed out that the space would end up looking very empty. That swayed me. And in the end, the label is extraordinarily unobtrusive.
