 Well I could have got something for my Dad even though he's already getting Cabourn for Christmas.  Oh well.   They're giving away that shirt jacket and cricket blazer.
Were there any good styles in 50?  Just got on 5 minutes ago and it looks all 48s with not much to choose from.
Wow, that's an amazing gift.
 I was referring to a second cropped CWP as I already have one.  I prefer the length on that one and it's a great piece.  It may have a bit of a smell, but it well air out.  It's also treated even though it doesn't feel like it.  Water beads off of it.
 I'm sure they would work fitted, but that's not what I was saying anyway.  There are different degrees to which something can fit and from the photos the duffel looked even more relaxed than your standard duffel, hence my comment.  That said I trust PhilVo's opinion on fit.    So ridiculous they didn't put this online.  What version of the full length CWP was it?    Agreed.  I've have bought myself a second CWP at that price as well as one for my Dad.
 Well being too skinny is never an issue for me.  A year ago I was in some ways in the 48 range, but I'm firmly in the 50 range and it's more above the waist than below.  Anyway, would love to see a picture when you get it if you're so inclined.
     Cheers lads!  Today will be the first day in the wild.  Getting the mop cropped and guy who does it just bought a Tank (the watch) and some sort of Tag Heuer, so we'll do some showing.  I like the Black Bay, but just note there are articles out there about corrosion of one of the parts.  I believe it was the crown tube.  If I recall correctly rinsing it after diving should do the trick and Tudor might have fixed the issue by now.  Anyway, if you're actually diving...
 Wow.  Amazing work.  The duffel's fit would worry me a bit, but as you said the fabric is amazing.  I have the cashmere Cameraman and I love it.  Even if the fit is a bit big you could just layer it.  Congrats Phil.
 Thanks!  I absolutely love it.  Here is the other side:  Again, a poor picture, but you can at least see the reference it is now.   Really a great looking piece if I do say so myself.  I'll never change the strap and I love the brown as it can worn more casually.  The "fauxtina" doesn't look faux to me and looks quite rich.  As some of you may remember, I'm not used to a smaller watch like this as my VSAs were all 44mm, but I am used to this already.  I've read that many...
So I don't recall how it started, but a couple of years back I started looking at "higher end" watches.  I think it was the Black Bay or the Ranger, the latter of which is still very high on my wish list, that caught my eye.  I'd previously worn Victorinox Swiss Army Mavericks (the VSA dive watch) which I'd scored for $90-$125 each on eBay and promptly replaced the rubber straps with Natos.  I never thought I'd want another watch as I liked the look and feel of the watches...
