I know it's an interesting post and probably something not many do.Does anyone else carry a pen that supplements the rest of your business attire? I collect pens as a hobby, but anyone who knows me will attest that pretty much no matter where I am, if I have a shirt pocket, there is a pen in it.
Generally, I try and match my pens with my cufflinks. It sounds silly, but I can't tell you how many people ask me about my pen before anything else about me.
I'll give you a few examples:
If I'm wearing sterling silver cufflinks, I'll carry my MB 163 Sterling Silver Pen
If I'm wearing gold toned cufflinks, I'll carry a MB 146 which is a black/gold colored pen
I'll carry fountain pens for important events, and I'll carry ballpoints/rollerballs for situations that I might have to loan out a pen to someone. I'd imagine that this thread will be met with a bit of opposition, but hopefully there are 1 or 2 others who have a similar mindset to myself.
Some of my Mont Blancs for those that have no idea what I'm talking about(hopefully we can embed photobucket pictures on here):
