No messenger bag, you give them a ring and ride that money train for as long as you can


I would say a nice pair of shoes (and I am not talking AE) and a couple nice sports coats. Everyone respects a well dressed man and a well dressed man feels more confident.

D2, not many women carry messenger bags, which is why I asked to clarify. And no one actually referred to a male except PWC2.

I am a woman btw.


Nothing says “basic consultant” like a Tumi bag


Side note- super interesting that many assumed the partner is male.


Tks P1, good rec


Honestly you would have to rip my Tumi from my cold dead hands.

It is consulting cliche but it is going strong after 6+ years. It has the right number of compartments/dividers and I can throw a pair of jeans and a t-shirt in it if I'm doing a single day trip (loathe wearing suits).

I've considered getting a sportier messenger but it is hard to walk into the client with a Chrome/Timbuk2/Mission messenger bag. I used to bike everywhere so I really like these.

If you don't want a black basic Tumi you could go for one of the lighter colored ones or leather (or Filson), but I would consider that the bag is constantly being shoved under seats on planes, left on conference room floors, etc and may show it's age faster as it gets dirty.


Frank Clegg. Hand made in Massachusetts- nice clean styles


I like Filson and Ernest Alexander. Not sure if they “scream partner” or not


Seems a bit precipitated... no one is confirmed regardless of what your significant other says. Unless he is not in a big 4. Is he your boyfriend and is trying to pressure you into marrying him? 😂. Or maybe he just wants a free bag


If you’re thinking briefcase/bags then I swear by Briggs and Riley. All sorts of styles, leather classics, modern sport, basic utilitarian. Lifetime warranty. Any serious road warrior knows the quality. If you really want to spoil him or her, a nice Patek Philippe says a lot about you both. (I’m hoping my wife is reading this 😉)




You are a consultant and your SO is a partner? Good luck; you’ll probably be replaced in the next 4 years.


Make- no
Female- LV


And no one says snob like “Deloitte,” D1. I made partner and I got a kiss from my spouse. So thanks for being nice 😀

Thank you, P1!!!! Very helpful!

Hermès has great bags for men and women.

WM1 - tell me more
