If I was employed by a local Mob boss to go around collecting protection money from intimidated shopkeepers, I would keep a low profile. Not so for this consigliere. Deliberate mismatching, clashing patterns and every shade of purple in existence are piled atop one another but ultimately seem to cancel each other out, letting him slip under the radar of the local Polizei, on his merry way to harass the baklava merchant on the next corner. Also in case you hadn’t noticed tote bags are dead, so follow his lead with the original, eco-friendly holdall aka the brown paper bag.
