It's a bag patterning/cutting class that gives an overview of a myriad of styles and techniques. You get to work with a few people with around a decade of experience in the industry. I'll probably take a leather working class at some point too. Learning from experts saves tons of time.

The closest I've seen in terms of a small minimalist hobo bag (for guys, anyway) is this Guidi bag, but even it has its downsides. I think it's unlined, and the dye leaches out onto whatever you're carrying in it. Also, there's nothing securing the end of the strap, so it's just dangling there if you want to have the strap tighter. It's a decent-looking bag, but not that practical for those reasons. Haven't seen a canvas equivalent anywhere, either.



The Noctex lung bag doesn't have the same issues as the Guidi bag, but it's a bit larger than I'd ideally like.

Individual Sentiments did some really nice sling bags a few seasons ago that I keep hoping they'll bring back.

 

post #5358 of 15079

they're way more 'technical' but i have two visvim ballistic 8ls for this purpose and they're great

current season prices are probably stupid, but mine are from round 2009 and haven't worn down at all

don't buy lamina; they're gorgeous but too padded for their size and prone to developing holes

 

those guidi bags and ones like them are beautiful, but start to show their weaknesses the second you need to put anything structured or pointy in them

 

would be cool to see more middle ground between the two, something all leather that performed a bit better

Oh man. I almost mentioned that guidi bag too. Almost bought it once actually. But the strap was ridiculous, the zipper was a bit much and it wasn't quite spacious enough. Unlined wasn't a huge deal. That guidi leather is nice..

I like the smaller size of the Guidi bag, personally. I think @nicelynice said something about his bag dry-bleeding onto either his clothes or the stuff inside the bag. Agreed, though, Guidi leather is nice, and I like the looks of the soft horse they use here.

So I've been looking around for a black denim jacket with side pockets and finally found something that I actually like. 
Originally, I want something JP/IT/US made. But might have to settle with this one for now as I've been looking around but found nothing that fits the criteria. 

Someone suggested that I should take a look at the recent release of Robert Geller's denim jacket, but the fit is very cropped. (http://man.totokaelo.com/robert-geller/denim-jacket/black/H1D4FD)

Here's a picture of the denim jacket I'm interested in:
http://lsco.scene7.com/is/image/lsco/Levi/clothing/194580002-back-pdp.jpg?$2500x2000$

It's a type-I jacket as opposed to the mainstream type-III jacket. Would also appreciate some insights on Levi's Line 8 quality. It costs 60 quid with a student discount. I think orSlow and Our Legacy did similar one a couple of seasons ago. 

What do you think of the jacket?
I already have a type-II, Vis 101, and a type-III, Vis 103, jackets. 

(Did Hiroki get the naming wrong?)


I was also thinking on getting a black and white 'Peace" patch and stick it on the front pocket. Does doing this make the jacket looks cheap? If you guys see me  in the street, what your first thought would be on a guy wearing a jacket with one patch on it.

http://rivetandhide.com/categories/jackets/indigofera-gunpowder-selvedge-grant-denim-jacket.html had my on this for awhile, can't say anything about the brand or quality etc though

Anyone have a good line on some slippers? Looking for something with a durable sole.
post #5364 of 15079
indoor slippers or flip flops and the like?

if the latter, @nicelynice suggested https://www.olukai.com/ over the summer. i ended up getting a pair, and they are absolutely fantastic.

Oh, and since no one said it already, Scott Weiland RIP.

If you're looking for that cozy biz, then mukluks: 

 

 

Edit: don't think these have rubber soles, actually. But some of their models probably do.

I want something to just kick around the house. I'm having some foot problems and walking around in socks all the time on hardwood floors isn't good for me. Thanks for the suggestions. Maybe I should just get some espadrilles.

I had my Guidi bag lined with a fabric I bought from the fabric market because it was bleeding like crazy and I never loved the suede interior..
Love it now
