That's my philosophy. Usually I just scrawl notes on bits of scrap paper and a cheapie plain notebook.

My thoughts are too chaotic to be constrained in a $400 filofax.

Super super impressed with Luxire. First crack at MTM and I'm loving it.

Looking good, what meermins are those, I don't recognise them?

Depending on your budget you might like to look into P Johnson or Suit Shop.


Thanks for the links kayhill. Do you have any rough idea on what MTM pants from these places would cost, so I know what to expect when I chat to them?

A $350 notebook would have been a lot cheaper.

Moleskin note books for thought and use $20 desk diary and electronic calendar. My filofax is 17 YO haven't used it in five years should condition the leather. One problem with diaries is hanging on to them for five years.

I know this is going to be unpopular and far be it from me to separate you all from your beloved paper fetish :p but in todays day and age would it not be worth at least considering one of the many tablets that have inking technology built into them?

They do, same as most alcohol-based products. They can last a long time if stored properly. As they degrade they lose complexity rather than go off, so many are quite wearable. For a lot of vintage stuff collectors want the bottles, they don't plan to wear it. Also, older forumaltions are often more desirable becausethe quality of the ingredients was better.

I use calendar on tablet and iPhone and find that diary on desk is best for scribbling notes. Also I've kept a journal for over 25 years both in MSW and Moleskine.

Work diaries have to be kept for 5/7 years for tax and legal purposes.

Rob, this is quite a good marriage of physical and digital note-taking: http://www.moleskine.com/au/news/evernote-smart-notebo-1

 

Available for order here: http://www.notemaker.com.au/store/notebooks/smart-notebooks

 

I've stopped using Evernote, but there was a time I relied on it heavily in Uni/pupillage days.

 

I might come back to it soon.

p.s.

 

Moleskine has a decept iOS app. But I prefer UPad -- which is definitely worth the price tag.
