You'll get no argument from me! Although many people I work with have bags or backpacks that are nearly as bad. Technical people rarely care about style. I think everyone around me already thinks I'm weird for trying to make an effort in this area.

Considering it's current season and retailing for $360 elsewhere, yeah. I personally liked the piece but thought it was expensive...nice pickup though!

It's actually the one from last FW. It's the wool version. This season's similar shirt looks better IMO but it's only made of cotton.

Well damn I still like it and still think it was a good pickup.

Thanks for the advice. I looked at those brands, but they seem to be all work boots, deserts & chukkas. What does everybody think about this pair from Buttro?



Again, I like the distressed look. My natural distressing efforts have only ever ended in salt stains...

Damn, it doesn't looke like Barney's ships to Canada anyways.

julius bag is sick and so are those boots

No, you shouldn't by those.

Still not sure exactly what kind of clients. But you mention "conservative" possibly being an issue, which I do not find that bag to be, so no. MC might be a better place to pose the question.

Surely the Julius bag would be an improvement, even in slightly more formal situations than where I currently find myself. For example, the most dressy I'd ever get with customers might be cords (or chinos), a button down shirt (or nice sweater), and some boots. Basically trying to do a slightly cooler looking "business casual" which I hate. In my opinion the black leather draws attention away from the unusual details of the Julius bag. If the bag were a lighter colored leather, the details would become more obvious and thus the bag would be less conservative.

I like the idea but the quality on it looks bad from what I can see. I'd suggest against it without some more details.

Thanks, but that's proving to be more difficult than I had anticipated. I could have the stuff shipped to my office in Michigan, but Barney's won't even accept the Canadian billing address on my U.S. currency Mastercard...

I might have to call in some favours from my American friends .

Higher-neck cardigans. I've got this Our Legacy shawl cardigan in navy. It fits so damned well, and looks great, I think I want this in the cream color also. The other is from S.N.S. Herning.

I've got a crappy french connection cardigan that buttons up to the neck and thats the redeeming feature for me, I unbutton the bottom 2 or 3 buttons and wear it almost in cape fashion, that way it doesn't bunch up at my waist and moves as I move, plus still keeps my upper warm.
