    DRE, eh?

    Gives Dr. Dre's music a whole other complexion now. One far less gangster, yet a lot more sinister. Go figure..

    Not sure who is he, but I consider him stylish, in this getup at least. No Australian Members thread club tie though which is where you trump him.

    God, can you imagine a marketing budget like that to play around with?

    Anyone got any recommendations as to where I can purchase some bags for work? Preferably under $200. The only shop that I found a reasonable enough bag is Strandbags which sells a particular brown full grain leather one for about $160.

    Looking for a non-black one with a double handle, in leather or canvas with leather trim. Actually preferring burgundy/navy/forest green canvas with leather trim, but brown full leather also good. Most shops don't seem to sell any sort of bags for men that isn't black...

    aKula's briefcase yesterday was beautiful. From here - http://www.htleather.co.uk/ - he might give more details.

    Thinking you could probably customise as desired but might blow the budget.

    What happened to the No Purchase Club....? Did you break (or do a Gerry Nelson as I call it, sorry GN could not resist).

    You mean a briefcase/messenger bag? I'm interested in this too. Have been looking at second hand Coach bags on ebay, and also Filson bags (which look nice, but seem expensive for canvas). At the moment I drag around a colourful Crumpler bag, which looks a bit strange...

    Coincidentally, I was looking at briefcases today:

    http://stores.ebay.com.au/Korchmar-Outlet?_trksid=p4340.l2568

    Of course the one I really want is way out of my price range:

    Oi! I just over-filled my needs!

    By the way, I want to get some metal toe taps put onto some of my shoes. Is Master Cobbler near Collins and Spencer Streets a good place to get this done?

    Nah not technically broken. It is something that I have planned prior to the ban along with another concession to purchase a pair of pants strictly for work.
    Bag will go towards my accessory concession - as I currently do not have a briefcase and have been using a messenger bag. It has come to the point where I can no longer stand the discomfort of a shoulder strap over my suit or holding it by the strap with the bag almost dragging along the ground.

    I have also planned my emergency trouser purchase concession as I have anticipated a particular pair of midgrey trousers which I regularly wear will fall apart around the crotch due to wear and tear - I had already patched that area once. And well the pants finally gave way last week. But I will first see how I will work with my remaining pairs of trousers by reintroducing a couple of pairs that was originally too tight into my rotation.
