    Really, I think Time Out of Joint was the best from the last round, and it's still better than the shit that's getting thrown around now.
    Yay! Really, I'm just hoping for some really nice Toj bags right now. Almost went with a Porter boston bag but pretty sure whatever toj puts out will be worth the wait. Currently just rocking plastic bags hobo style.

    I completely agree with you though. Restaurants that have way too many items on the menu irritate me. A lot of Chinese restaurants do that. I mean, how the hell are you supposed to decide between Shrimp Fried Rice and Chicken Fried Rice. Fuck!

    Wouldn't you decide based on whether you feel like eating shrimp or chicken fried rice? What the fuck?

    Personally - I have 3 main bags, all black, all suit me nicely, but none are really that easy to buy and I have felt the pain of finding a nice bag; in order of smallest to largest - I have a cow suede Yohji messenger that's vertically the size of A4, a little larger maybe, has a guitar strap-style fixed strap... #2 is a Julius bowling/Boston bag, calf leather, good bag, Riri zipper, it's indestructible though made simply, good bag but purse-y, and then #3 I have a Givenchy weekender/duffle in nightingale, textured calf, dry cheap feeling leather, standard YKK zips (not the Excella series that I use on the TOJ jackets) standard cloth lining, way overpriced, but capacious. That's what I use. I have had more bags but I do wish someday to own an MMM or to think of a bag I want more than that. that is the point for me. I make it, or I'll just buy it from someone else if it's better than what I could make. That was the case with the TOJ seabag (that will never get made now) and then the TOJ first prototype weekender (which you'll never see, I nixed it [​IMG])

    I want winter to come around. By then I should have some cash$$$ for MDR with fur collar (bring it back) and a duffle or fishtail. Realized how much I spent on shoes and if I just pared it down a little I could get some shit I've been fiending for.

    What if you're feeling beef? Or noodles? Fried noodles? Cantonese style noodles? Pho? What about other dishes if you're eating family style? Sweet and sour pork? Beef? General Tso Chicken? Beef with Broccoli? Spicy Eggplant with Beef? With Chicken? The possibilities are endless and the decision process is tedious. You've got to get straight up Decision Matrix all up in this bitchin' Chinese restaurant.

    I can't eat seafood, bitches! Chicken fried rice or I gtfo. Never eat in a place that has pho and fried rice, or at least never order the fried rice there - that's their money maker for local mechanics who come in to get takeaway for lunch, fried rice, crab rangoon, and a coke. [​IMG]

    I want Pho now. Fuck, luckily it's lunch time. TOJ is the most delicious thread in SW&D. I swear, every time I'm here, I end up drooling.
