Another Useless Product

...Unless you're living pre-1960 and/or the clumsy lead of a movie in which you need to drop your schoolbooks. Considering the small part of the population that subset comprises, I've deemed this Monacle, B Yoshida, and Porter collab useless.

Don't be deceived by its belt-like looks. This here is a "magazine strap". As the name implies, it's for magazines, not books. At least they recognized that the type of people who would be dumb enough to drop $75 on a nonsense accessory like this can't read real books. If you are one of those people, or you just have the urge to buy this thing, here's your best bet: get rid of the leather at the end, buy a belt buckle, and make this thing somewhat practical. 

If you like the web belt look (that's what those military belts are called, kids), wise up and dig on one of these: Paul Smith for $105, Fred Perry for $56, Levi's for $11.25
