   Same here.  Can't stand it when my collar wings up if I am walking around without a jacket, but also not a fan of metal collar stays.
 Can't go wrong with anything from the Prospex line.  My Shogun is one of my favorite watches.
Thanks, dude, but how do you know what's in my closet? (eyes nervously looking around)

 I think this is generally where I'm at currently.  With Steed coming to Chicago in January, I've been giving this significant thought and am leaning towards staying with KW.  One reason is that Steed MTM has dropped into my price range with the diminished pound, but that is not going to last forever and going with Steed should be an ongoing relationship, not a one-time thing.  I'm also starting to question why I'm so fixated on how the quarters look when I tend to wear...
