    My mom always said OCBDs and chinos will always be a timeless outfit. Can dress it up or down with shoes/belt choices

    How well does the Copper River stand up to a bag like a Saddleback?

      They both have their followers, and both have a 100 year warranty. Hopefully someone that’s used one a good bit can chime in.

      The Copper River is no where near the quality of the Saddleback. Saddleback is made much better all around. That being said, I own the Copper River as $200 is much more in my price range than $600.

        There’s a saying I try to remember when comparing choices like this: “I can’t afford to buy cheap things.” For example, I bought a $50 quality umbrella that I still use over two years later. Had I bought a cheap CVS umbrella, I most likely would have spent two or three times that amount in those two years to constantly replace them as they broke.

          And I actually agree with that. But a saddleback is like a Bentley while the Copper River is a toyota. The Toyota is nice and will get the job done for a while (ive had mine for 3 years with no issues) but damn that Bentley is wayyy sexier.

      A little late to the party on this one, but if you’re still interested in knowing about the Copper River bag, I’ve had mine for four years and it’s aged incredibly well. Before I go further, let me be clear that it is absolutely not a Saddleback, but neither is it priced like one. When I bought my Copper River, I very much wanted, and still very much want, a Saddleback, but as an at-the-time graduate student with kids and an at-the-moment poor adjunct professor, something in the $400-600 range is just out the question. For the $200 price point, I’m not sure there’s a better rugged bag out there, especially considering the 100-year warrant. So far, again after four years, there are no defects to speak of, no loose threads, no busted hardware. Nothing at all to make me question the quality of construction. The leather has taken on a nice patina as well, a rich medium brown. About once every three months, I use a spray-on saddle soap and conditioner. Spray it on, wipe it off. Takes maybe 10 minutes.

      My one minor complaint, if you can call it that, is the leather has gotten a little soft. In some ways, I actually like how much it’s broken in—it’s sort of like an old baseball glove in that way—but there are times when I wish it was a little sturdier. Other than that, it’s a great, handsome, tough as nails bag. It’s something I see using until that first real financial windfall comes and I can upgrade to a Saddleback, and by the time that day comes, because of the warranty and the quality of the Copper River bag, I’m sure I’ll be passing it onto my son.

    I didn’t know where to send this, so I’ll ask here. Have you guys had any experience with combatgent.com for suits? Looks too good to be true

    Sorry but Invicta is the worst watch ever. Do yourself a favor and buy a Seiko. It will last longer.
