Thinking of opening a claim on the black intarsia from serie noire, paying a bit more and getting a zamb leather, I already have a hammered dust intarsia anyways. Dealing with serie noire has been a nightmare. They respond to my emails every 5 days. Why have I never received good customer care from a French shop.
What kind of bags are you guys usually carrying? Totes / Shoulder bags / Messengers? I'm looking for a nice bag, preferably in black leather, for a long time now. It has to hold an A4 folder, a book and some small things suchs as phone, wallet, glasses, tissues etc.
Only thing I liked was an Ann messenger, but I cannot justify spending 1300$.
I think I'm experiencing fashunz regression. Less jawnz, more other stuff.
I have yet to experience this, buying from one brand and recently just buying things I will wear a lot at retail (which means buying 2 pieces instead of 10 every time buy something) has not diminished my love for clothes....yet. I do want to invest in a good watch or cartier nail bracelet or something in the near future
Basically I've come to a realization that a large chunk of my wardrobe is (rightfully and maybe unfortunately so) devoted to business casual stuff for work. Full CM and artisanal stuff are smaller, but probably equal components. A majority of non work jawnz is SS/MMM/RG/ToJ type stuff. A few random DH/Balmain type things. Really, that's enough. I still appreciate and want various things, but I don't really get that many chances to wear cool shit unless I want to overhaul my work wardrobe into full on tailored Jil/MMM/whatever or go full retard EG/Junya.
That, or a career change - someone with a cool sustainable business that doesn't have a dress code hiring?

I like messenger bags. But have been contemplating a nice backpack at some point since I no longer work at a place that gives them to us for free.
I have a barney x porter tanker bag which pretty much is the perfect messenger imo and has lasted for years with me through burning man, travel, coachella etc. May get the buzz rickson x gibson x porter version at some point out of that insane rickson nylon.
Also have a guidi m10. Contemplating a m.a.+ embryo bag (Vaguely smaller than a messenger for times I don't need to haul a laptop e.g. music festivals) and an acronym third arm messenger bag for something more hardcore than the tanker bag (Holds more, probably even more durable and extensible).
