So, get out there you miserable fuckers.
Black suits: does anyone here have a black suit that they wear a lot? Or does it just sit in the back of the closet? I like them but don't know how much use I would get out of one, even though I wear suits occasionally. I would probably wear a navy or grey suit most of the time instead. But I still want one for some reason.
I have an Helmut Lang black moleskine suit that I like to wear when it is cold (i.e Autumn & Winter) and a Dolce & Gabbana mid weight wool that I wear to funerals or nighttime occasions (not as regularly as the HL).
the popularity of travel reminds me to what has happened with the whole foodie (ugh) phenomenon: much more accessible cost-wise than even 20 years ago, spread by social-media and the inescapable trend of people "curating" their online persona, and presenting a near-infinite list of possibilities. Or maybe I just associate the two so much because I got tired of reading countless OKC profiles where women would describe how they loved food and traveling.
For me traveling has always been more interesting when able to live somewhere for a little while, rather than just flying in, exploring things on the surface and not really getting to know a place in depth. But of course it's not possible to live everywhere, and it gets tougher to not have roots after a certain age, so traditional traveling will always have a place.

All the edgy details and black hardware etc. would look great with leather sleeves, methinks
