Does anyone have a suggestion for a leather/canvas weekender duffle?

I'm in ATL, and I've never seen Sid in thrifts. It's killing me inside.

If you can afford it
No one does leather/canvas better than Filson

On a related note
Just finished my comprehensive exams
My girl got me a Filson small carry on bag
Awesome gift

Here's what you do:
1. Wait until the end of the season.
2. Go to ctshirts.com
3. But a shirt that you like, in your size on clearance. Should be around $25
4. Receive shirt.
5. Pull out brass collar stays.
6. Guard them with your life and use them in all shirts.

EDIT: Benefit of my method vs ASW is, with mine, you end up with a shirt, too!

Here's how I store mine:
Photobucket

I have about 4 or 5 other pairs that don't fit in here, but are being held in reserve for when these bend/fail/get accidentally sent to the cleaners.

Call me a localista, but I'm a big fan of both Frost River and Duluth Pack, both made in Duluth, Minn. Frost River was actually started by a former employee of Duluth Pack.

I own both the Frost River Overland bag and a Duluth Pack traveler's portfolio and both are made amazingly well.

Nat,

Was just reading a review of the frost river. Love that waxed cotton ruggedness. Cheers for that!

Lovin the flight bag.

I've been looking for a purple gingham shirt for ages. So happy this one fell in my lap. Unfortunately I realize when I got home that the collar is kind of shot. Not too bummed though, going to art school means you can get away with wearing damaged clothes without any one judging you.

Awesome! It did look more contemporary than the labels I've seen online.

This might be a stupid question, but have you thought about hiring someone to take photographs for you? Advertise at the local college, pay between $10 to $15 an hour, have them come in one or two days a week to photograph for you? (find someone who will work for clothes?)

Yes, it will make your taxes a little more complicated - but, if you have a great haul while someone else photographs, you will make more than if you yourself do the photographing...
