    06. Leather Goods Connection Belt - I've always liked the look of brass after it's been worn a while.

    [​IMG]
    07. Leather Goods Connection Wallet - This is by far the nicest wallet I've ever had. I got really sick of flimsy leather wallets and their crappy fabric linings. This is the real deal.


    Ahh Ive been eying that wallet for a while, but in a brown. I like the handstitching. Also I have the same belt as you but in brown. Good taste. [​IMG]

    Thanks. It's also got a lot cool details, like the top front pocket is actually pretty deep, could fit a small umbrella in there, also, there's a strap that on the inside of the front of the shirt that snaps across the buttoned section to leave it open, like this:
    (Note: that's not me)

    And a pocket in the back for magazines, which I've yet to try out:
    It's one of my favorites of the moment.


    Thanks for the pics. I'm not often in this neck of SF, but the EG stuff can be seriously cool, and this epitomizes it. I could use the darn umbrella pocket some days!

    What Leather Goods Connection belt is that? Harness Leather?

    I would like to order something similar. I am considering the Harness Leather, 1 3/4" thick with nickel buckle #3. Maybe add Harness Stitching...

    (This does not include socks, underwear, or mandatory formal occasions such as work, weddings, and funerals.)
    Minus all that, all I have left is a pair of jeans.

    I really like that fishing jacket. I could use something like that when I'm working in the field (geology student).

    I bought one in brown too. If you want to see pics, there at http://www.styleforum.net/showthread...=13460&page=32. I might be selling it though, I really don't need two wallets.

    Water, it is the harness leather belt.

    01. Alden Black Cordovan Boots AF43 - These boots will last forever, are perfectly formed to my feet, and can be worn with everything. I know I should have another pair of shoes or boots so I can alternate, but I don't want to sacrifice anything else on my list.

    [​IMG]
    02. Nudie Straight Sven Dry Selvage - I'm choosing these because they're my favorite pair of raw jeans. Samurai's and PBJs are both tempting, but I don't own either so it's hard to say.

    03. American Apparel White Crewneck Tshirt - If I'm going to wear the same thing all the time, it can't stand out. Nothing could be safer than a plain white tshirt, assuming I don't spill all over myself.

    [​IMG]
    04. Engineered Garments Herringbone Bedford - Not only is this jacket incredibly beautiful and functional, but it adds a much needed touch of class when I'm drinking a can of Black Label or PBR.

    05. Hanes Black Zip Hoodie - I need a Loopwheeler. In the meantime this Hanes does the job, and I'm not gonna cry if someone accidently burns me with their cigarette.

    [​IMG]
    06. Leather Goods Connection Belt - I've always liked the look of brass after it's been worn a while.

    [​IMG]
    07. Leather Goods Connection Wallet - This is by far the nicest wallet I've ever had. I got really sick of flimsy leather wallets and their crappy fabric linings. This is the real deal.

    08. Jantzen White Shirt - While I don't actually own this yet, I am hopefully going to order one this weekend.

    [​IMG]
    09. Banana Republic Grey Crewneck Sweater - Blah. I need a nice sweater.

    [​IMG]
    10. Jcrew Broken In Chinos - These were given to me as a gift, and to my surprise I really liked them. (I'm already regetting not putting Ray Bans instead).


    * I was curious to see what I would choose from things that I own, but I meant for the list to be anything...


    Where did you get that jack for point #3?

    6.elmer's glue-the glue of glues-works on even the most advanced of models
    7.Nava cube bag-what would a student of arch. carry around but a defined volume?
    8.carabiner-every "cool kid" in the world has one and its really immature and all; but I hate having shit in my pockets
    9.Hi-Tops
    10.girlfriend-much needed credibility to my "look"
