I haven't been wearing my watches with much frequency, and I noticed that they have started to keep horrible time. I need to get them serviced, and wanted to use someone local. No major complications. My most difficult piece that needs a good cleaning is a 34mm JLC MUT. I also have an IWC 3706 (7750 movement) and an IWC Portofino (2892) that are also due for service. I prefer to use a local shop with competitive pricing.... hoping for less than $500/watch
So you express a preference for modern furniture. Stay away from Room & Board, C&B, Pottery Barn, etc. My own suggestions: 1) Ligne Roset: Italian modern furniture. I purchased a second hand rosewood armoir from LR a few years ago but had to pass it along to a friend when I moved in with my girlfriend. Excellent quality stuff. Much nicer than B&B Italia. 2) ABC Carpet: gigantic and offers an eclectic mix of styles

My coworker replaced his 8 year old Honda Odyssey with a 2013 ML450. It's a nice family car.
You are in desperate need of a woven belt and a Jiffy steamer. Pants are also a bit wide for this outfit. The light shirting gives the appearance of being bottom heavy.
The Fairmont better not be a 7.5UK... they were sold out by the time I arrived.
They carry a loafer which has a much fuller ankle than the 73. They also stocked a spectator on the 71, and a semi-brogue blucher in an antique burgundy in the 71. There were also two boots included in the sale.
The B&M Barney's sale was very good with regards to shoe selection. They had the John Lobb Vale in black discounted to $650-675ish. Sizing was limited, and it's on the 7000 last. The discontinuation of G&G was confirmed by the sales guy I spoke to (Ahmed). Most models were in the $450ish range. Small sizes (& & 7.5UK) have been depleted. My damage included a pair of captoe JL monks (last pair in 7UK). They had three other pairs of JL on discount, though only the...
The second boot with the tweed is made by Alfred Sargent. I purchased a similar pair with a medallion in chestnut calf.
1) New 2013 Civic is much better than the prior version2) Elantra is nice3) Focus depreciates like hell though recent models have been holding up due to fuel savings4) Altima is significantly nicer than the Sentra5) Honda Fit Sport (?)I personally drive a Toyota Yaris sedan around NYC and wished that I spent the extra coin for Fit though my car has already taken a beating in 2 years (cracked grill, door dings, multiple scrapes on front and rear bumper). You cannot drive a...
