I will concede that backpacks are acceptable if you intend on taking out all of your classmates / everyone on the subway, or if transporting chargers (the TLSer).

Like an adult sized version of those things for carrying babies?

I will also concede that that is a very suave backpack.

I call it a bookbag, it's way more grown and sophisticated than "backpack." Plus it implies that I put books in it bc smart. I vote in favor of bookbags/backpacks unless you have to wear a suit. Then you look dumb.

I'm not advocating spending $700, but the Coach Bleecker is an attractive backpack for a law student provided it isn't too gargantuan. It may be a bit masculine though.

Maybe look for one with a similar aesthetic. I think it's the flaps and belts that makes a backpack older and more sophisticated looking.

Also thanks for acknowledging the suaveness of my backpack. That said, shouldn't you be studying?

I mean it is very decent-looking for a backpack but you might as well just invest in an nice leather shoulder bag at that point.

Also yes. Fuck. Bye.

@Alex, that's fair. That said, I do also think that backpacks are super convenient when you travel. It's much easier to have a backpack and a large roller than a two rollers IMO.

@Jager, I thought so too! To find classic and traditional menswear and accessories, look through the Brunello Cucinelli catalogue (cry at how much people spend on clothing and accessories briefly) and find something for less than a 10th the price with similar style. Just about everything they make is absolutely impeccable taste wise unlike a lot of designers, especially if you want something that won't go out of style or draw negative attention. Again, not advocating spending anywhere near that (although you can find their suits through discount retailer for the price of SuitSupply) but it's a good way to inform your style IMO.

That's gonna be my coping mechanism with biglaw life.. I have a huge problem with high end fashion (shoes in particular). I LOVE me some cap toes and wingtips. Dress boots as well. I'm a straight male, but I'll be damned if I don't have a shopping problem when I have money to spare. I'm gonna go overboard with those first few paychecks. Whew.

I had a friend stationed in S Korea as an officer in the army. She said the tailoring shops over there that would custom make suits for about ~70 USD. You pick the color, the type of fabric, they would measure you.. and then hand make the entire thing off of your measurements in about 2/3 business days. Your jackets and pants both would have your name stitched into them as well.

I would literally fly across the country to find a place like that in the states. They were easily 700 dollar suits.

Me too bro. I love suits, ties and dress shoes. the quality in the area totally makes a difference though. You can tell whats a nice suit and shoes vs not and it makes a statement and people notice.

Yeah ... same probably. I have a tendency to get a lot of really nice clothing, but I sell most of what I buy (only buy what I like) and tend to just keep what won't sell at a reasonable markup or for more than I'd pay for it.

I'll probably drop too much money on a few blazers, outerwear, and shoes. Personally, I'm more of a wholecut shoe guy.

When you buy a suit, just make sure it's canvassed and not fused. A fused suit will not look good after a few dry cleans.

EIDOS is a brand that you can get pretty good deals at if you are located near the right Saks or Bloomingdales. I think the end of year sales puts their suits at like $300-$500 roughly. Granted, they got rid of the three-roll-two I think. Shade.

Alternatively, learn your size in brands, and buy online. You can buy Brunello Cucinelli suits for about the same price as SuitSupply if you are patient, know your size, and where to look. [IIRC SuitSupply suits run roughly $700-900?]

teach me your ways. I'm due for upgrading my business wardrobe. My suits are old (they lasted me through college and 2 jobs so far.. they were cheap when I bought them but haven't been able to justify upgrading yet due to not wearing them often). What's the best deal?
