This is ironic because Maybach is owned by mercedes benz. Not only that, but the brand is going to be discontinued by the year 2013.

Good one. I assume he meant Maybach is for chauffer but I get what he's driving at.
After all, Hong Kong boasts more Rolls Royce per capita than any other city.

I seriously doubt the person I reference knows much about cars although he was aware that MB makes Maybach. But experience tells me that he was far more concerned with dollar amounts and keeping up appearances.

Personally I'm fine with MB.

His chauffer was driving at the time. Your assumption is correct.

Or if you really want to be a badass, open up a vein and sign your documents in blood.

Note: do not try this when closing on your house. It will not end well.

If one does this, is it required that it be because he is a bad ass? Can one not do it because he appreciates the beauty of the design? Surely it's not always about the overly conspicuous show.

Actually, the OP was concerned mainly about matching his pens with his Manolos cufflinks.

The collection of vintage prototypes bestows the critical title of badassery.

i have the end all solution to this. Get a vintage limited run demonstrator and load it with hot pink ink. By doing this you get the best of both worlds.

This is an excellent fountain pen, you can find one on ebay for about $40.

And feed it with something colorful like this:

327

I believe the proper place to wear it is the inner pen pocket of the jacket.

I kind of like these ballpoint Caran d'Ache pens; they're cheap:

 

Caran d'Ache Pens

 

I keep red, green, and blue in my bag, so it's always a surprise which color I grab. Just kidding, I always nonchalantly pick the one that best coordinates with what I'm wearing.

What instances are you folks using a non-black or blue ink, and even then, blue can be a problem at times. I'd love to toy around with something like a blood red but I just don't know where it would come up in a business setting, and I'm not handwriting letters any time soon.

Any recommendations for something with the size and feel of a MB 149? The way I hold a pen lends itself to something very wide like that, but I'm not about to spend $400-$600 on a single pen.

PS Whoever brought up MB being like LV, kind of funny, I believe both are owned by the Richemont group.

Editing.

So far, assuming I can read correctly, the majority of respondents have advocated keeping a pen not in their shirt pocket, but in their interior jacket pen pocket. Wouldn't it be worse for a leaking pen to damage a jacket than a shirt? What's to prevent that from happening?
