airport casual


i went to the beach this past weekend with my old man.  i’ve got to hand it to him, he was the best dressed guy at the airport.  i snapped this photo right after we went through security.  he was rocking polo khakis, bean bluchers, a fjallraven greenland jacket, and carrying a filson briefcase.  bonus points for the scotty cameron scotty dog hat which he informed me was really hard to get.  excellent work, dad.

good find: filson leather briefcase

gq picked a few of their favorite items from the new park and bond online store.  one of them was this filson leather field satchel (or briefcase if you don’t work in the field).  it’s an investment at $795, but one that will hold up for years to come.  you can give it to your kid one day.  he’ll thank you later.

if you haven’t heard of park and bond, head over to their site and do some browsing.  it’s basically an online men’s store for bloggers.  kind of takes the fun out of finding some stuff, but j. crew started it last year with their “in good company” collection.  not complaining; just saying.

christmas loot

my wife got me a filson briefcase for christmas.  i love it.  it was about time to retire the oversized black monster work provided me with.

she got me the 256 model which is the original.  a lot of people wonder if they can get their computer in there and my 15-inch dell (for work) and 15-inch mac ( for play) fit like a glove.  there’s no padding in it so you can’t throw it around, but why would you need to.  it’s got two big pockets inside and two pockets outside for extra document storage.  it’s the perfect bag for me.  i wouldn’t do much bigger.

time to man up

there comes a time in every man’s life when he discovers he needs a briefcase – like actually needs one.  i’m 2 months away from turning 30 and i need a briefcase.  i don’t want something huge and bulky.  i want something slim and sleek and will show age gracefully.  after much consideration, i’ve decided on the original filson briefcase.  i realize i have sort of a mancrush on filson these days, but take a good luck at this briefcase.  it measures 16 x 12.5 x 4.  it’s exactly what i’m looking for.  they make one slightly bigger, but i fear it will become too big when it breaks in.  i am fully prepared to order this week but might wait to see if santa brings me one for christmas.
