I've always believed in the axiom that one should dress not just like their boss, but one level higher.
Almost thirty years ago, I was just finishing MBA School. My boss had a broken in soft leather two handle brief bag, but the CEO carried a well worn Ghurka bag.
For a graduation present, I asked my parents to get me The Expediter. It was a brilliant move that served me well. I used that bag hard for over a decade and then had it refurbished and went on for many more years. Let's just say it was a good run.
I think I'll pull it back out next week. Vintage is great. It shows a lifetime of experience that still sells me well now that I'm the CEO.
