That's fine. I know the cost on Filson items so if they want to sell them at that price so be it. Of course I have warned people that there is seconds floating around and most of them are on Ebay.
Is it polyester? Amazon says it is. Would be great if it's houndstooth fabric.
This really doesn't make any sense. I don't think you need a $4000 Valextra, but I'm sometimes surprised at the extent to which men here who obsess over their shoes and suits will leave their cologne/fragrance and their accessories/bags completely out of the picture, or skimp on them thinking it is a good idea. If I said, "I'm matching my Sartoria Partenopea with these plastic Hush Puppie loafers," there would be widespread condemnation. Doing the same thing with a Hush Puppy of a bag, though, gets a "good idea!" from members. I don't get it. That bag above is not particularly attractive to me; the fabric looks cheap and the rolled handles look plastic. The papery nylon lining and the cheap hardware will not age well. As well, the size/function of it appear to be more small duffle than tote. I'm not saying you have to go and spend your kid's college savings on a bag, but at least a tenth of the care you give to your suits should be spent on the accessories you carry. Quite frankly, most people will notice the bag you carry well before they notice the handstitching on your lapels.
Agreed. Unfortunately I'm at a point, as I'm sure many of you gents are, that you're literally miles above everyone around you in terms of dress. Even in urban environments, as a 29-year old it's so far beyond the norm that people everywhere stare. Hell, I had that court appearence and everything I wore trumped the prosecutor's. The guy was like 40 and a law professional. I'm a young business analyst. He was wearing rubber freakin shoes. I completely understand your point of view and yes, everything should line up and match. But there's definitely a barrier there between being well-dressed but accessible and looking like that's all you do or care about. I want to look like just another guy, only well dressed. I don't want to look like money, or labels, or prestige. That topic is probably an entirely different thread in it's own.
