    RE the water pressure.

    This is why I refuse to live in a building taller than five stories.

    I can totally relate.

    Clothes -- and location -- and even occasion -- very much influence our mood and our motivation.

    My journey to Tom Bihn:

    Three years ago I'd never heard of Tom Bihn.

    I'd never even seen a "Bihn" bag. At the time, I was still enamored with my Jack Spade bags. And let me tell you, I'm a...

    I'm from New York.
