Jake von Slatt carries a purse — and he’s man enough to call it that. He’s also geek-maker enough to want to properly organize its innards with desired compartments. I’ve never thought of making additional organizing inserts with accordion folders, file folder stock, glue, and packing tape, but it sure looks like it works well. And who cares if it looks funky? No one is really going to see it inside your bag, and your lipstick… er… I mean your Flash Drive, won’t care. I especially like the etched Altoid’s tin containers and the holsters for TWO Leatherman tools.
