This is an absurdly late response. The $200 were Chinese made as well, so the mark up made even less sense. I've never seen English made Clarks in store.
This reply might be too late to be relevant to you but that model is a SNZG09J1. I should check this site more often. I threw it on a Crown & Buckle NATO a while back... kind of a crappy photo but you know.
I was on the look out for a CWC G10 but I went with this instead. Not an authentic military watch but a similar style.
One of my suit jackets (of admittedly poor quality) looks considerably worse after only two trips to the drycleaners, presumably because it's a glue job, but the trousers to go with it are perfectly fine. I was wondering if it was a faux pas to wear the orphaned trousers or if they will be easy to distinguish from stand-alone slacks. They're a medium grey glen plaid, and I kind of like check wool slacks on their own. I was planning on getting some Prince of Wales pants to...
Just got a Sportsman's bag as I'm going on vacation soon. It's my first good piece of luggage. It looks pretty immaculate right now so I hope to break it in with time.
J Crew sweaters fit me perfectly in size S, ditto for my Inverallan in size 38. I am 5'11" and quite thin though. Hope that helps.
A few modest contributions...   Vintage Swatch "X-Rated." It's as old as I am and I think it looks good but I don't wear it very often.   Can't go wrong with the Timex Easy Reader.   My current favourite, the Victorinox Swiss Army Maverick GS. Not exactly appropriate for scuba diving but it would be fine if I dropped it in the sink.
501's are my top choice for cheap jeans. That said, the best pair I've ever owned are Levi's Vintage 505's. Raw selvage and not cheap at all.
Has anyone ever tried 49th Parallel? They're my favourite beans in Canada at least and you can buy online.
Just got a 3A in size 38 off eBay. I love the fit and I'm amazed at the thick yarn and dense knit. It basically feels like a coat. I wasn't sure what colour to go for but I dig the oatmeal. I've heard that lighter browns don't suit gingers like me but I think it looks fine. It is a bit itchy against the skin but I favour long sleeves anyway.
