Hershel Supply Co - Holiday 2013

So I ran in to an unfortunate situation a couple weeks back and my hotel luggage was stolen. Not the best feeling in the world, and the hotel ended up cutting a check to right the wrong, but there are certain things that can't be replaced (Swiss Army knife and leather case my pops gave me 20 years ago, Supreme Duffle Bag from 2007 collection, etc). That being said, I'm in the market for a new duffle bag/backpack set, and came across the polka dot collection from Hershel Supply Co.

I ran the bag above by wifey, and she was not a fan. Well, she was a fan, if the bag was her, but has a pre-conceived notion that polka-dots are for women.

Mrs. OSTT: I mean, it's cool, but kind of feminine, no?
Me: No, not at all. It has a sneaker compartment at the bottom.
Mrs.: But it has polka dots!
Me: And? Those aren't isolated to women.
Mrs: How many polka-dot shirts do you own?
Me: None.
Mrs: I own 4, and 2 polka-dot sweaters.
Me: (silent)

Hmmm. Aside from the fact that she obviously hasn't heard of Kwame, she might have a point. Perhaps  Notorious BIG killed the fad for guys with his line from "Unbelievable", and its been a girl thing ever since.
