    ...and overdid things.


    Half fanny pack, half cod piece. I bet Darth Vader had one like it.

    Not feeling the fanny packs, whether Versace or BV. [​IMG] I would just prefer a simple clutch, something like a long wallet or travel wallet, but that is just slightly thicker to allow more than bills/credit cards. I have several of them and will post pics when I have a chance.

    In other news, though, I decided to get myself a Porter bag; a Porter canvas/fabric tote from the `City` Line. Very different from their usual black nylon fare (this one is in beige/light brown canvas fabric with vachetta trim). I will upload pics when I can, as it looks MUCH better in person than the pics on the website. Versatile, large pockets, well made, and reasonably priced. Stay tuned for pics.

    Looks better than a clutch.

    Nothing looks better than a clutch! Even Jon can't sell me on it.

    I want a cheap reliable bag with less details. Just a bag that I can throw around.

    Currently thinking of the Jansport Right Pack but I'm sure there are better options.

    Yeah the belt is nice too. Too bad that's the biggest one. Would've been good to have one twice this size.

    Wtf do you want to fit in there? If it is much more just mobile+cash just take a small messenger. Also, on a second thought, it might not work with the tight jeans look.

    Yeah I'm just gonna find a small messenger, thanks. Definitely more versatile. I mostly just like this on an aesthetic level than a practical one!

    i think discussing boring backpacks is a far cry from this thread's original intention

    Uncontrol sorry but that really is crossing the line into purse territory. Just one man's opinion of course. Just so everyone else can share in my pain, I won a grail bag about a month ago for 255 gbp. I had previously offered the seller 300 to end the auction early - he wanted 350, I put in a snipe for 320, won it for 255. He refused to send it to me. He then sold the bag locally, I never got it. Just today I referred the dispute to Ebay customer service. Nothing will happen to him, but it re-opened the old wound. Goodbye, one that got away.
