Quite the dichotomy here. A $630 lunch bag.

This is extra hilarious to me.  As mustachians, I believe that many of us "brown bag" it to work most days, and this fashion trend provides an excellent contrast to us saving money.  I couldn't stop laughing.

That's one of the most ridiculous things I've ever seen.

Oh, absolutely ridiculous!  Far more mustachian to buy the $290 paper version ... 
 
Yes, that's right.  There's a paper version for $290.

Heh. My lunch is usually in the bag I got free (reusable grocery-bag style, usually cost $0.99), stacked in the cheapo plastic tubs - which get washed and re-used.

Ditto. Exactly that.
