I don't exactly have anything to drain.
Pens in your shirt pocket: Anyone else consider it to part of their style? - Page 3
I carry my pen in the pen pocket in my coat most of the time. When I need to attach it to my shirt, I slide it through my placket, just above the third button from the top, and clip it onto the shirt. That way it hides behind the tie, mostly. Although some of my bulkier pens are a bit awkward in that position (but still not as awkward as the pen in the shirt pocket).
I haven't yet ventured too deep into the world of pens, but soon will. My in-laws are aware of my fondness for pens, and gave me a set of Faber Castells when I passed the bar. One is a ball point and the other is a fountain pen. No clue what the quality of these is, but its a good way for me to dip my toe into the water.
That's the plan. I just have no money to put into it. Like I said, just out of law school - and in this economy, that means I'm flat broke. As soon as I start making some money, I'm buying another pen or two.
Damnit, now you've got me thinking about which colour inks would be SF-approved. Black, like suits, would obviously be out of the question, but the standard blue biro-like colour is too common and cheap looking. I think one acceptable colour would be a deep midnight blue. Obviously brighter colours would be allowed in certain situation, but would not be acceptable for CBD
fountain pens are fun. but they stay at the desk... between potential leakage, not starting when i need em, etc, theyre simply not as functional
I use Private Reserve midnight blue in most of my pens for daily work use, but have a couple with Aurora black for signing important documents.
i had the churchill. great pen. hefty for sure...about the same size as a pelikan M1000. IMHO, it was a more comfortable pen to write with...felt great in the hand...kinda wish i kept it.
