    Basically a pockets extension to keep my hands free. Water bottle, e-reader, maybe a couple of reusable grocery bags, and a pen.

    I wasn't aware fanny packs were back en vogue.

    I have a fanny pack like that and it's my most-used bag. Lightweight, easy to carry, fits my Kindle, keys, phone, and wallet when I'm not wearing a coat.

    Here it is a making a rare WAWYT appearance - I wear it over the back, not on the front like this..

    so long as you never wear it directly over either of your fannies [depending on which version of English you speak], there's nothing wrong with fanny packs - and they're probably the most useful style of bag out there for the day-to-day.

    Finally decided on a Guidi q10. Big thanks to @curiouscharles for the awesome deal. If I'd gone with anything else, I'm fairly certain I would've ended up wondering if I should've gone with the q10 instead.


    That looks pretty solid, not to tech-y. Might pick that up at some point down the road if I decide I want a non-leather option as well.

    Whats the jacket? Looks great. The zipper on that porter bag looks so bomber.

    I just bought the chuck taylor 70's ox low's, which look exactly like those (natural white and no contrasting stripe on the sole) apart from metal eyelets, slightly thicker sole and tougher canvas upper.
    These:

    They are also available in hi top if you are interested.
    Look great and pretty perfect if you want a versatile white minimal summer sneaker. It's converse, so you know what you will get.

    Both Jil, I want some dark navy or black cropped pants. I feel like the Adrianos will be too skinny for me but I prefer them, does anybody here have experience? Are they both pretty slim or is one roomier?

    They both look good but in my experience that kind of slim and cropped style does not work very well if you have a built upper. I've had similar pants and they made me look unproportional since they are both slim and short.

    Yeah I am wary of that, but usually with a baggier/longer/flowy shirt it works out. I just honestly have no idea how slim either of these are.

    or

    my other two casual belts are black/brown mechanic's belts, so I'm leaning towards the first in the interest of having something with a buckle.


    or none of the above because I wear too much black as it is?

    Considering these for summer, to be worn sock-less with oversized shorts
