Damn if you’ll wear a purse but you also don’t want to disturb the lines of clothes you are styling with keys, kerchiefs and iPads. So what’s a dapperQ to do?
Here’s some advice from Althea, an astronomer living in Florida who identifies as a “fledgling dapperQ”:
I need a shoulder bag; I’m a packrat, and can’t go anywhere without my pens, calculator, iPad, notebook, umbrella, etc. It’s easy to find a purse that’s just big enough to fit my gear; messenger bags, not so much. But I took a quick trip over to the local army surplus store and was amazed at my options. There’s a nice, sturdy canvas bag in practically any size!
I’m sending you a couple of pics (one to the right) since I’m so pleased with my purchase. Just look at those pockets 🙂 This particular bag came in khaki, black, and camo, too. And as a side benefit, you can always kill half an hour looking at pocketknives … or maybe that’s just me.
PS I love getting photos and advice to share with readers and now you can upload your own photos to dapperQ via Twitter using the #dapperQ hashtag!
