Ah, got it. Simple enough.
Generally I am familiar with grey market in regards to electronics, but what constitutes a grey market watch? I am looking at Chrono24 right now and there are definitely some attractive prices there, including new Orions for ~$1500, which is doable if I hold off another month or so. How do I know which ones are grey market?
Thanks guys, exactly the information and encouragement I was looking for!
Hey TWAT lords, I have a few inquiries hopefully some of you can help me out with. I just recently, after so many years of being interested in clothing, decided that I really like watches too. Dipped my feet in the shallow end with a Stowa Flieger B-Uhr, which is unfortunately back in Stowa's hands because not a month after I received it, something was borked and the watch slows down and often stops when the second hand sweeps over 10-15. I'm praying for a warranty-covered...
The closest thing to Uniqlo is called GU, it's like the Pepsi to Uniqlo's Coke. The clothes are not as nice though, and they don't have designer collaborations. Bears in Shimokitazawa is a good place to check for denim. They have in-house collabs with denim makers like Japan Blue, Eternal and Kojima, sometimes coming under 10,000 yen ($85-ish). They carry a lot of good repro denim. I don't find Beams to be much like Uniqlo, they're much more curated and each shop is...
Checked out what they had at the closest Uniqlo to my house and was kinda underwhelmed. The girls' stuff seemed a lot nicer, the trench had a great fabric for the price and the seersucker blouse was cute. I ended up getting some navy trousers, an off-white boat neck and a linen blend button-down. I liked the fit on the linen blend, it's short in the body and has a wide neck so you can button it to the top button comfortably. I might have to check out the Shibuya Uniqlo...
Problem is people will instantly tune out of what they heard when the word 'sponssorhip' comes up, where there are a lot of ... umm ... people that fit into Bud's target market ... who will probably think that shill was just him talking about what beer he likes
Recently purchased but won't be arriving for a while. And for the wife:
Spending hundreds of dollars in order to acquire little digital thumbs seems like a dubious investment.
There are also some stragglers still on sale at Zozotown too. There's a size 4 striped cotton shirt for under a hundred bucks.
