You can buy the right $20k+ watch, wear it whenever you feel like it and sell it for more than you paid or at least within 10%. Pretty good for a "fun" pickup. A lot of people who are in their 20's are working toward/own houses... I wish $40k was enough for a downpayment out here
SW&D has a weird aversion to expensive things that aren't drapey leathers or distressed boots. It's like people here can't understand the desire/want for things like houses and cars, but we don't bat an eyelash at $3000 boots that we can't even try on before buying. Probably a product of age / career path?
I own a pair of roughout Vibergs. Doesn't make me want Virgils any less.

JLC MUT Moon phase. @dieworkwear if you follow the CM watch appreciation thread, there's users with multiple $20k watches.
Sigh Dries suits are a no go for me need a 52 jacket and a 48 or 50 pant.
My SF rec copy pasta. I can make a list for the South Bay too... (San Jose and its surrounding suburbs). It skips a lot of the really famous spots like Fleur de Lys, Gary Danko, Benu, etc. If you're not leaving the actual city: Coffee - Philz, Sightglass if you're a snob Snacks/between meal stops - Swan Oyster Depot, SOMA StrEAT food park (food trucks/microbrews on tap), show dogs Burgers - a lot of places in SF make good burgers - B Bar (Yerba Buena garden right by...
Oh word? It hit 70 now? I'm a 52 in most Dries tops. they had a limited selection at 50 off last time I was in.
