It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

I've had one of these for many years. I like the look a lot, and it holds enough stuff to be useful. The bag you posted looked a little too slim to be able to carry much of anything.

I won't be carrying a laptop. I like your big bag, but will probably go for one of the coach models.

Oh, then you're good to go. I also have Coach briefcase (I have way too many briefcases/bags) that's really nice and has held up very well.

received my LEC shipment today
i forgot that i already ordered the slim fit plaid pants so i have another one coming from last night

http://canvas.landsend.com/pp/mens-p...233715_-1.html
yay or nay on the pincord trousers?
will need just a tiny bit of slimming in the legs
they look very summery

http://canvas.landsend.com/pp/canvas...uery=408667OHX
these jeans are very slim fitting
they are okay through the thighs but very narrow at the ankles
not sure if i will keep

http://canvas.landsend.com/pp/mens-e...242063_-1.html
and the slim fit plaid pants
i really like
but they are a bit too slim fitting for a real office setting so they will just be casual wear

My Lands End cords (olive) came today. I'm wearing them now. They are pretty slim fit (for me, at least) and I think they look quite good. Plus they're very comfortable.

These are the first cords I've owned since the 1970s.

Got my redwing beckmans today. They are the black cherry featherstone color. I still totally want a pair of 1000miles but I'm gonna wait till the spring. I figure itl be slick walking around in leather soled boots in the snow and ice.
With the help of you guys I'm finally developing a bit of style.

These are super comfortable. They're like wearing jammies.

Nice, I'm glad to hear. I think they look pretty killer. What do you do to care for yours? I stopped by the redwing store and the clerk said to use a cream but not to do anything until after a couple weeks of wear so they get broken in. Do you think that's a good idea and do you recommend anything in particular? I've heard nice things about obenhaufs, actually i think dwass recommended it to me a while back.

As a rule I hate sharing PII over the interwebs. Call it paranoia and I would probably agree. Im an engineer (B.S in aerospace and mechE, going part-time for MS in MechE now). At work We do r&d for advanced materials (mostly composites) used in specialty, high strain-rate applications. Think very fast, like a speeding bullet fast .

Most of the time I dress pretty shitty at work because I never know when I have to run down to our lab and replumb fittings from our steam boiler or cast a mold out of aluminum filled epoxy (That stuff will KILL your clothes) or drive a forklift piled with random stuff. And historically I haven't dressed very well outside of work either but now I'm trying to step it up a few notches and this thread helps.
