Ah, but poor Thorstein didn't take into account the quiescence of stabling body servants among polite society, such that constantly shaving the face might recrudesce uninhibited.

These are only the EGs and JLs. There's some contention on the thread about whether aportnoy accidentally forgot some in his closet.

Remember reading that thread. Crazy stuff. IIRC, he updated his count in the shoe porn thread (or somewhere similar) 6-9 months ago (or somewhere around that time) when he randomly reappeared.

I'm thinking about getting a Glenroyal briefcase, but can't decide on a color. Can I ask for your guys' opinion on which is best?

I'm kind of between Havana (dark brown) and Dark London (luggage tan), but if it's going to be the latter, I feel like I'd rather opt for a tone like this:

post #1073 of 3217
Havana or Navy.

Dark London is too orangey for me too, so I'd prefer your alternative to that as well.
post #1074 of 3217
Not a tan fan, so I'm with Kaplan on this one.
post #1075 of 3217

I like tan, but this particular one looks a bit dull to me. So Havana (dark brown).

I feel the same way about the orangey-ness of the tan, but these by SAB and Clematis seem good, no?

post #1077 of 3217
To me, the thing about tan leather is, that while it may look great in pics, I know myself well enough to recognize that I'd quickly tire from carrying around something as attention grapping as that. YMM of course V.
post #1078 of 3217
Agree that the tan is a bit bright now, but it may darken a bit as it ages and get a great patina.

All the same, I'd still probably go for the Havana.
post #1079 of 3217
Havana FTW
post #1080 of 3217
Navy. YMMV.
