the only thing xenox and i have in common is that we're outliers

the difference is that he's a faux-intellectual hobbit who tries to justify his horrible clothing choices through bullshit waxing philosophical and has no capability to understand or appreciate anything beyond what he would put on his own skin

myself, i prefer not to justify my horrible clothing choices

If I didn't have the capacity to understand or appreciate outside my own personal taste I wouldn't be on this forum. As for justifying my clothing choices, yes there is definitely a 'philosophy' behind it, if you want to call it that, but thats only how I make my choices, not a means of excusing poor choices. I'd appreciate feedback on what I wear but it seems people are more interested in berrating me and calling me out for being 'preachy' or 'condescending' as of late, which I can only apologize for, as thats just how I seem to come across on the net.

78,000 yen. I talked to someone I trust whom has seen the Julius bags from this current season in person and he told me the leather quality is worthy of that general price range.

My clients and co-workers dress about like this (or slightly worse)... The above people are not anyone I know-- just a picture I found on-line that's fairly representative of how the others around me dress: dad jeans, baggy polo shirts, sport shoes, or the occasional "dressy" person wearing chinos. I wouldn't ask about anything "Julius" on MC. Those guys might have a heart attack or suggest I start shopping at Brooks Brothers.

^^^ if that is the case, your co-workers will not notice whether your daily briefcase is a $850 Japanese bag or a plastic Safeway bag with a deodorant receipt still in it. If you buy a bass boat, they will notice.

Hahahaha. You sir, are spot on! While they are not the majority, I encounter a surprising number of people at a work site whom like to talk about sport fishing and their boat. This type of person is rather common in the engineering/oil industry. The Julius bag is more for my benefit than other people. It flat out bugs me to carry around that ugly bag I posted earlier which clashes stylistically with nearly everything I wear. Besides if I took the attitude of "why care when nobody will notice", then I might as well dress exactly like those guys in the picture. But somehow, I cannot bring myself to do that and feel right, so I don't.
