Wouldn't a briefcase, or some type of bag that you carry in your hand, work for anything that can't fit in your pockets? There's no need for a shoulder strap.

I remember somewhere, it might have been a thread that I started on walking and standing in a suit. I was saying how I tend to walk with my hands in my pockets in a suit because otherwise it looks pretentious like I am trying to look tall, proud, and powerful, or whatever, then again I don't want to appear timid or shy. I think it was Vox who came up with the idea (with pictures for guidance) that exposed thumbs is key. A hand in the pocket with the thumb out looks friendly and natural compared to standing at attention, or sheepish.

I carry a lot of books and papers across campus. It's just not as comfortable as a shoulder strap.

This, to me, is seriously jumping the shark. Wear nice clothes that fit well, stand how you want to stand, carry what you want to carry. I gives a damn about thumb placement.

That's an interesting point.

I use a saddleback leather briefcase, actually. Unfortunately it comes with a shoulder strap, and I do use it. lol

Unhook it.

No.

I have a shoulder strap on my Filson and leave it on, but very very rarely use it--generally only when I literally have too much to carry (e.g. if I have to go to 4 different stores grocery shopping on the way home from work).

lol That's me everyday, bro. I recently went back to school to pursue my dream career and one class has 9 books. 9 books! It's killin' me.

You need every one of those books just to go to class? confused.gif
post #299 of 389

I'm not saying I always carry every book. I'm saying I have a lot of books.
