 For a so-called bespoke tailor, his clothes look bad. Jackets too tight, shirt collars too big, waistcoat too short, no real effort at matching the chalkstripes on the sleeves with the chalkstripes on the chest of the jacket, and much more. His clothing looks like bad OTR clothing, rather than bespoke clothing. On the other hand, none of that really matters as he looks like a master of self-promotion and his image helps him to sell to people who want "style" but who...
 Look on eBay, a vintage watch re-seller with a dedicated website, or someone with a good rep on Timezone or similar.  If buying from eBay, look for perfect feedback, preferably a watch business.  There are a number of good guides on the net that tell you how to spot the differences between fake and real Seamasters, such as: http://www.ebay.com.au/gds/How-to-Spot-a-Fake-Vintage-Omega-Seamaster-300-/10000000000958528/g.html With regard to restoring, hopefully any watch that...
   Yep. In a cynical marketing-and-profit-driven move, Omega changed the bracelet construction (screws instead of pins) and gave it a bigger box, and increased the price by $600 or $700. They also changed the model number - instead of the 3570.50.00 as it's been for donkey's years, it's now the 311.30.42.30.something or other...    No, Omega still offer the three-register chrono with manual-wind movement. 
The Indian love guru and his spam are back again in force.   Do we sound as though we need a lot of marriage/love counselling here on SF?
 I must admit that I'm a bit confused. I'm not a ToJ/Drew fanboy. I assumed that the jacket was actually klonowj's jacket, albeit with a mistake having been made during manufacture, and so I suggested that he keep the jacket because if he sent it back to South Korea, he'd probably never see it again, and he'd never receive a replacement jacket, either. After all, as the old saying goes, a ToJ jacket in the hand (even if it's the wrong one), is worth two on a Google Docs...
Speaking of the Abbott government's response to the HRC's report on children in detention, I was particularly impressed by what a marvellous coincidence it was that the Secretary of the AG's department, Chris Moraitis, just happened to misplace his notebook whilst on an overseas trip.   That was, of course, the very same notebook that would have contained notes of his meeting with Professor Triggs, the President of the HRC.   Of course, I'd never suggest in any way,...
  Harold, I think that he removed it himself, more than three years ago.
 I agree. It's one thing to disagree with a report, but to shoot the messenger (the President of the HRC) instead of responding to the substance of the report was foolish and, in my opinion, political folly. Brandis and Abbott's behaviour was reprehensible.  It would have been far more sensible for the government to have stated that it disagreed with the report and to then have argued that whilst it's regrettable than children to remain in detention, the number is now much...
 Probably not someone else's jacket - I suspect that the order was just stuffed up.   You're right, it is pathetic - pathetic that ToJ is acting like it is. At this stage, if klonowj sends it back, he's either going to be waiting 18 months to get a replacement, or he's not going to receive anything at all.
   +1 bazillion. Either keep it and wear it, or sell it on SF or Grailed. Don't send it back to Sth Korea, as I think that the likelihood that you will never, ever receive anything in return is very high. Better to have a jacket, even the wrong specification, than no jacket at all.
