Please refrain from being incredibly rude.
I have personally notified Hughes of the complaints on this thread and urged him to respond.
He is without doubt incredibly busy and will be away this week due to some commitments.
Well if it helps, I am able to offer near-guaranteed and quick delivery of Hughes straps for those ordering my watches (I could also chase him up on other orders in the process). I meet him regularly in person.
WBill linen is cheaper and of a better quality than the LL linen. A better value IMHO.
I wear many suits made from the WBill and Minnis linen often in Singapore. It's as cool as a suit can get given the circumstances.
Interesting that there are so many "Have 5k, what watch to buy threads", I must have seen at least 3 of them so far.
Are there any 18k gold watches at the 5k mark? I think even Stowa's are above that price range.
