The New Tactical

As part and parcel of my immanent entry into the corporate stratosphere, and the jetset, I'm going to have to get my luggage thang on. Now this is an advert on the home page of Zero Halliburton, maker of breifcases that just scream 007.

The New Tactical is the look that I'm going to try to establish. It's going to be a kind of Pacific Rim upscale look with blues, blacks, charcoals, with silver, ice blue, platinum and white. So far, there's definitely Oakley in the picture. Also there's the practicality of some Eddie Bauer. The high style is more Kenneth Cole and Claiborne, which is what I do already. But there's this Japanese dude that I like from way back I could never afford.

I can't wait for there to be a Chinese International look. I'll definitely integrate those elements. Ahh, stylin'.

I think the Swedish book bag, the Satan Inside t-shirt and goloshes should work too.

But if you must go upscale, there is no look that cannot be afforded, just looks that have to be planned.

On the other hand, the Mac World t-shirt from 1989 is another look.

Issey Mikake has lost his mind. I recant.

This http://arenot.com/english/arenot_00808.html is still the best looking case

Sure it was Miyake, and not Yohji Yamamoto?

I like Yamamoto, but that's a bit young for my taste. I need to exude a bit more power and maturity. But as geek chic, I think he's nailed a kind of post silicon-valley look. Yes, I dig the cargo pants. I could probably do the sandals and pale baggy look for a Hamptons beach picnic.
