WHAT's HOT AND WHAT'S NOT LIST!!!
1.) THE MESSENGER BAG! Recently in a VANITY FAIRstory, I saw an item mentioned as being part of the ABSOLUTE necessaries of the stylish Wall Street TYCOON. THE MESSENGER BAG. I had no idea what this was. So I googled around and came up with this item that makes the male wearer look HAPPENING! Very NEW YAWK! YOU can MANUFACTURE THESE babies in a major LEATHER MAKING TOWN, LEON, state of GUANAJUATO, center of MEXICO for about 20$ each! SUEDE and LEATHER in terra cotta to charcoal colors would work.
2.) THE KANGAROO KICK WITH A SMALL CALIBER PISTOL IN IT. UNZIPPED. This is necessary in a big city these days. Leave the zipper slightly open, then it's not an illegal "concealed" weapon. For city wear. Leaving cafes at midnight, your hand can rest on the gun's butt, or you can have your hand on the trigger guard. The image to the left shows pouch filled with cellphone, tooth brush which is how you sell it to less paranoid types. KANGAROO POUCHES would be great, not in acetate but in in soft elegant calfskin in neutral manly colors (to go with a night time dress suit) & are right now, not all that available. Not for guns. The typical Gucci man purse is flat and hangs on shoulder. Not useful for pistols. Then, you have the money belt acetate type in the marketplace which is just for freedom from pickpockets in the big city streets but the recession is deepening. We have more and more rich people dodging needy people who really don't like the wealthy white man coming out of a four star cafe with a beauty drenched in furs and jewels.. I forsee a big demand for the GUN POUCH as the uberwealthy become more paranoid.
THIS IS A WORK IN PROGRESS. I SUGGEST that for trend updates, you tune in to TEEN VOGUE, the magazine with regular searches of New York's Street, its BOHEMIA, its artistic sections, collecting the latest design trends.
