    @eWalker, you might wanna consider selling your copy after you're done ^.^

    I guess I mean that I don't have bags for the sake of having bags to fit every outfit, like some women seem to do. But I confess I've long been in search of ideal bags that offer plenty of organisation, and have replaced most of my previous ones with TB alternatives.

    * The Western Flyer and Smart Alec are basically replacing my suitcases for most travel - a choice of formal/structured and informal/unstructured, depending on the trip

    * The black SE replaces an ancient (as in, original 1980s) leather waist pack that's never been quite big enough for my needs

    * The S19 and matching SE replaced my previous EDC backpack and shoulderbag for work

    * The Pilot will be my minimalist overnight bag, and also a laptop/briefcase if need be - things I could use the S19 for, but that would mean hauling out all my EDC, which is a pain

    * The Swift - I took up knitting recently, so it acts as a "mothership" for all my tools and smaller projects

    * The MCB & SCB replace a couple of Healthy Back Bags for casual trips such as shopping in town or sightseeing - I liked the HBB ergonomics but the teardrop shape meant they never held anywhere near as much as their size implied

    My only "surplus to requirements" bag is the aubergine SE I bought to match the SA because I love aubergine. Also I don't count accessories, because they're just part of making my bigger TB bags more efficient

    @icebeng you made me laugh hard and loud.

    @sribe I very much like your pragmatic approach and I think TB-Bags are the very think for that task. My problem is, I swing bag and forth between beeing practical and beeing... I do not realy know how to call it other than in the "I want THAT bag"-corner. What I do like is that I can with TB combine both. So the replacing my other bags with TB-Bags is taking place here too. I will just keep a few specialists.
    Thank you for detailing your bag-approuch out like you did. It helps keeping the perspective.

    I seldom get that feeling - the last time I did, it was for this:

    It's in the softest suede imaginable, with an adorable fox print lining. Total extravagance, but I love it and use it whenever I want to dress up a little!

    Is the "Color Me beautiful" book you refer to a 1987 book from Carole Jackson?

    She also published a "Color for men" so I was kind of curious to check if the system would help me to coordinate color while downsizing to accommodate project 333 recommendations.

    Yes, I bought that one too. I dragged my husband to get color analyzed because his coloring could be either in the warm or cool range and I could not tell.

    I slowly rebuilt his wardrobe in his color and appropriated things that were too casual or did not suit him.

    I found the book for women at the library. I later bought it, as well as the one for makeup, and the one for men's wardrobe, because they were next to each other at the independent bookstore.

    The most important thing, is too find the right shade for items worn next to the face: shirts, ties and coats.

    I thought there was still color consultants but they have morphed to makeup consultants and the color analysis on the website is hit or miss.

    The way to find one's color is to get tees or golf shirts in basic colors from the different palettes. (make sure the tees have no logo to change the feeling of the color)
    One brown, one black, once cream and one white for example

    After the basic warm against cool color dileema is resolved, buy a swatch and match everything you wear to it.
    It is very difficult to gauge the warm or cool value of colors beyond the 4 basic colors I mentioned above.

    Comb the sales racks of department and speciality stores with your swatch book for tees, polos as well as long and short sleeves button down shirts to familiarize yourself with your color palette, try everything on to find out the density of the colors which best suit you. Overtime, you will be able to choose items without the swatch or from online pictures.

    If you are a Spring or Autumn, it will be harder to find clothes.
    Suits are especially tricky because they were standardized for Winter coloring: black suit, white shirt and red or blue tie with silver watch.
    Men have the advantage of having in house tailoring for their suits, even department stores offer this.


    However, if you wear business casual witch calls for khakis, you have won half the battle.


    After you have found your most flatering colors buy U.S.A made for durability, I still wear items that were made two decades ago in the U.S.

    For men, the jewellery is usually their watch and wedding band, a watch that doesn't match clothes can be removed for business attire since mobile phones are also time keepers.
    Alternatively, a fun colorful watch could replace it.


    Replacing comfortable but unmatching business shoes might not be in the budget, it is tricky if a suit is needed.
    A good solution is to buy a grey suit, a warm one will match brown shoes if there is a brown or coffee, hot cocoa or cream contrasting line in the suit design.
    Same with cool grey with red, blue and white lines and black shoes.
    I think it is better to use contrasting socks matching the suits lines or the tie if the suit is one color.

    Hope this help.

    Well Frank II you made me read a lot on "one bag one world" after I red the interview. You had some very good and plain answers to questions not all equally good. You have a very strait forward web-page there with good advice.

    BUT girls talking about bags, colors, outfits... and even men who seam to be interested in colors, sorry but that is soooooo destructing.

    You are taking it very graceful. I bent my knees to that ;-)

    If your extended travailing takes you to northern Germany let me know. I point you to some nice castle-ruins, not overly crowded beaches or beautifully woods, whatever is more to your taste.

    @haraya....I wear black and gray pants as well as jeans. My "tops" are coordinated to go with everything. Gray jacket.

    I don't really care about colors when traveling. I care about easy cleaning, comfortable clothes and the ability to mix and match almost everything.

    You know, a typical male.

    @ilkyway....I plan to be in Hamburg sometime in 2015. I just have to see the miniature museum.

    Yes you have it is really great. I went there on my first date with my husband. Back then I thought what a stupid place for a first date. Wors than stamp collections. But that was before. Now we are married for 7 years and went back there several times. Take lots of Time. It is totally worth it.

    @Frank A quick travel bag related question that I think @Ilkyway will also find of interest: there was an extensive review of the Dyneema vs. Ballistic Nylon travel bag issue on the OBOW site back in December 2012. How would you update those comments based on your own experience and that of other posters on both this site and the OBOW site? I think you are still using your Aeronaut in Ballistic Nylon. Did you hold onto ant if the 400d travel bags? Also, did you ever get a chance to try the Smart Alec in the 400d Dyneema version?

    Thanks. moriond

    I went back and read my review. It was on our "archive" site and not our new one. (BTW, the link you posted isn' working correctly.) Here it is:

    Gear Reviews: Tom Bihn 400d Dyneema/420d Nylon Travel*Bags - OBOW Blog - One-bag, carry-on, light travel tips, techniques, and gear

    I still stand by what I wrote. Both versions are terrific. I use the ballistic nylon version but still have the one in Dyneema. I may switch to the dyneema one when I head out for an extensive overseas trip if I need to save some weight. In that case, it will strictly be a weight issue.

    If prospective buyers don't know which one to get, they have to ask themselves:

    1) What type of travel will I use it for?
    2) Is weight an issue?
    3) Which one do I think looks better?

    My Aeronaut is in steel dyneema. Black dyneema hadn't yet been introduced and it is intriguing me. I may have to look into a trade if anyone is interested.

    And to make it more complicated, the Aeronaut 30 should be out by then, Who knows, I might wind up switching to a smaller bag.

    I don't have a Smart Alec.
