I found a few pics of the two versions of this bag I had. The handles were tubular/rolled leather handles. Interior was open with a zipper pocket and fabric lining. These two below are the same as the white one posted above, only in a different leather variety.Gray Blue:Black:I also had this Ferre version from AW2008 (the stellar season by Lars Nilsson that nobody bought because it was too subtle and $$$... and after which he was promptly fired). I don't necessarily...
That's a very interesting insight; it's exactly the kind of info I had in mind. BUT, I'm wondering if perhaps what I wrote may not be true for your SF CUSTOMERS, but may still ring true for the average SF MEMBER.I feel we are talking about/considering very different groups. I'm meaning more the buyer of a RTW bag, or the kind of member who comes here with little knowledge beyond name-brands. Or, to use the MC Suit Lingo... comes here thinking that Armani or Hugo Boss...
Sounds lovely! Is it the RL one with the large brass/gold lock on the front?I had two versions of this GF bag... a petrol blue and a charcoal/black. They ended up getting zero use for international travel... so on they went.As I mentioned, there really is (by necessity) very little variation in a weekender. That being said, God is in the Details. I like this style because it's slightly TALLER than the ubiquitous LV Keepall/Prada V20 and so looks less like a glorified...
Thanks! But, to be honest, the main reason I start these threads and hope others can chime in/take off on it is because I've made those posts several... if not dozens... of times over the years. I've been here for more than a decade and, like a lot of those old members, have mostly moved on due to age/lack of interest/repetition of postings/requirements of job and family. The recent LINJER posts and discussion have pulled me back in here and there, but again shortly I'll...
Lots of ideas; I'll post more as they come up.Not just what I "like" but what I think might fit your design aesthetic AND the leather types you already have... consider something like this one is from Gianfranco Ferre back 4-5 years ago. This in your Cognac/navy/mocha smooth leather would be lovely. Clean, simple, not too soft but not so structured as to feel like a suitcase. Size was pretty good as well (around 48-50cm wide). There really isn't much available...
Wow, boys, what a bar you've set today. Vol de nuit, Patch24, Yatagan, FM VE. Amazing choices. I have no idea how to keep up. I guess I'll match Baron's Yatagan (one of the mighty men's scents that tickles... nay punches... the nose) with COCO Parfum (one of the mighty women's fragrances that tickles... nay punches... the nose). A couple wearing each on a crowded train just might cause the paint to peel off the walls. Interestingly, Coco in the parfum concentration...
Of course you are welcome to join in the chat! But, my personal feeling is that we've got plenty of retail sites available and TONS of brands thrown around out there. What I DON'T feel we have here on SF is a body of common/standard knowledge for men's bags that is anything like what we have for suits, shoes, etc. The same guy who has fifteen points of analysis when he considers buying a suit has virtually nothing when it comes to a bag. "Um... black? Ehhh... maybe...
At least you get free shipping and free returns!But, srsly:TWENTY-FOUR X 6 LITER flacons??? I can just imagine a nagging spouse. "Jesus, Fred, you can't turn around in this apartment without knocking over another g#@##n flacon of this crap."I had the one-liter bottles of CdG Series 3: Cologne. I got so sick of it I was splashing that shit all over the place. gave some to the cat. Sprinkled it on the curtains. drizzled it on the floormats in the car. Decanted some...
Wish we had a "THUMBS DOWN" button.
Great... and extremely difficult... question. I'll let others chime in and as I can rustle up some old pics will post some ideas. Shape, size, materials... all play a big part. I honestly don't know that I've ever had the "perfect" weekender. I've had many that were okay/good/nice... but never perfect.
