wurger - I don't really think that white leather goes with the socks and trousers. The shoe looks a bit loose and also it would be better with laces.

I hope you aren't blowing your $

I'd argue you should at-least have the risk appetite to invest in an index fund over paying down debt.

You finance guys keep all the emphasis on quantification and fail basic aspects of qualitative considerations, the exact failings of the much vaunted EMH. I did not come up from finance fields, and it matters not a whit that i do not understand your specific parlance such as value premium. I schooled in actually running and understanding different businesses.

Qualitative considerations such as peace of mind in paying down debt, flexibility of being able to redraw for emergencies or opportunities, simplicity, etc., none of these factors can be captured on a linear spreadsheet, just like how EMH totally ignored fat tails from human irrationality.

Index funds present different problems, namely investor's tendency to panic and redeem low. paying down debt presents no such problems.KISS.

Value premium, that is such a laugh. Just like the latest study showing Buffetts success is apparently due to investment in low beta stocks. What geniuses! No one bothered to ask why the low beta persists. The simple answer is because you get rich owning businesses that spits out much more cash than the cash it chews up.

wurger, by the way, it's a waxed cotton Barbour jacket:

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), default qualityjames-bond-barbour-beacon-heritage-sports-jacket

 

Putting your hands in the pockets of that jacket is highly unlikely do do anything other than keep them warm.

Look at the pushback from the comments!  Typical lines: "A briefcase has no use at all...blah blah...if someone judges you by your briefcase blah blah blah...."  These numbpots do not realise that what they are actually saying is "I am so cool, I do not need to care how I look or present myself. I do not care that I am a visual eye-sore, as long as I am rockin my thang."

Thanks for the words PetePan. I do wish to start saving for a house soon. I don't want to end up like my older brother, ten years my senior, who only really started saving couple of years back and had to move to shit creek to buy a house.

I wonder who posted this:

I love my Filson(Apolis 256) so much. It's so useful. Alternate between that and my HT Leather backpack.

Thanks isurg, and I agree about the pockets. Jetted all the way.

Yes side pocket is more natural but I think it's fine on the Barbour.

Mate all of us work hard for our money and how we spend it is up to us. Just do what you enjoy doing. Life is about living and celebrating things that you love. Don't even pay attention to any negative comments. You don't need some internet dudes in styleforum to tell you how you should live ,neither you will need to explain where or how you earn $.

And to members in this thread - leave this poor guy alone. If you don't like some one - ignore them , its that simple !Same $hit has been repeated way too many times .

I meet Rene from DeeR Style last night just to discuss so ideas. He's a great guy and I will definitely get something from him in the near future; +1 JM for the recommendation. He can work to most budgets and from my little experience is the most affordable permanent MTM option in Brisbane. He had a couple of example jackets, trousers, shirts and shoes to look at. Regarding suit materials, there was Holland & Sherry swatches, others I was less familiar with and also the 'in-house' fabrics used by his preferred tailor. All pure wool. I'm not sure how easy/cost effective it is to specify a particular mill because it all depends whether the tailor is willing to bulk buy the fabric. He mentioned that he can do waistcoats, but has not had much experience having them made. At the other end of the spectrum, he is forming a working relationship with an Italian tailor and the hand-stitched shirt he showed me look incredibly refined.

He also does affordable MTM shoes which I don't believe have been mentioned here; is there any reason why you have not recommend them JM?


PS There was a post about JM being baller for using Deer Style - I'd tend to agree with this sentiment.

PPS are there any engineers (even real ones of which I'm not) on this forum? We should make a pact never to discuss shop in order to avoid 'disagreements'.
