    My Filson small carry-on, really a mid-sized messenger, in otter green, arrived today. I am so stoked. The size is perfect for me, and works well for day to day as well as for weekend trips when you just need gym stuff and a change of clothes. And, it has a leather handle so that it is easy to carry around without the shoulder straps, for short periods of time.

    I had one of those once but it didn't work with my specs and made me look shorter. However your taller so it probably looks good. It was a cool bag though.

    Hmmm... How does a bag make you look shorter? [​IMG] I am pretty aware of color, silhouette, tone, etc... but this is the first I've heard of a bag making anyone looks shorter (or taller). The strap can be adjusted...

    I swear it did and I wasn't the only person to notice, maybe it was just random but I'm 5 8' and I thought it made me look like 5 6'.

    I was at the APC sale and none of the stuff (except one deep blue pullover sweatshirt which I didn't exctly need) fit me. I also had to size down on all the shirts and many were still too big.

    I don't really understand APC sizing. I looked at some measurements. 17'' shoulder w/ 21.5'' pit to pit? This is on their garcon cut, forgot what size.. I've never tried on APC before but I can't imagine how this would create a nice fit.

    ^^^The arms were always cut weird too on APC stuff. I like the outerwear but none of the shirts.

    I got the blue-grey Garcon cut shirt in a small, and it's 16.5" shoulder, 20" pit-to-pit. Fit me perfectly, but it was a little narrow toward the bottom. Not sure I'll wear it untucked because of that.

    That's a huge watch, but I like it. [​IMG]
    - it actually looks bigger due to the square shape. It is a 42mm, so same as my other 2 IWCs - but they are round.. If that makes sense.

    Nig watch.
    - Excuse my ignorance, but what do you mean by "Nig" watch?

    [​IMG]
    btw: nice watch.

    - thanks, still getting used to it

    That's a nice big-ass watch.

    $10 says he meant "big watch" but accidentally hit the "N" key.
    Or he's been spending too much time on superfuture.

    I bought a cheap jade bear tooth necklace from a street gypsy.
