What are the best places to get straps for a Timex Weekender?
What do you guys think of 7 For All Mankind vs True Religion vs Lucky jeans? Would you wear one over another in different circumstances? How's the quality at each one?   If it matters, I'm thinking about: 7 For All Mankind: the Slimmy, and the one that's slightly baggier (the Standard or the Straight, I forget which). True Religion: the Ricky Lucky: 121 Heritage Slim
Also, since I've never bought vintage/pre-owned, where do you start looking for those? Is it all local ADs, etc? I know Tourneau does their little pre-owned thing, but I didn't get the feeling that they really discounted much...
Probably a bit off topic, but does anyone have any recommendations for good folios?

I usually wear 559 and 505 Levis in a 30/30.   1. Should I invest in designer jeans for dressier occasions? Do people notice? Is it worth it? 2. If so, where should I start my search?    
I traveled a similar path as you, and I'm now spending a lot of time in SF. I'm not a huge fan.  I have nothing against the so-called hippy/stoner culture, but somehow being around it and having it permeate the culture 24/7 is starting to get to me... I guess I like a more fast-paced lifestyle, which you don't get up here.
