I'm going to get Elia Caliendo to make it into a suit with SB 3-patch jacket and flat-fronted trousers with belt loops. My thinking is that the jacket and trousers will both work separately or together.Won't be commissioning this till early next year - he can normally turn a suit around in 3/4 months and so it'll be ready for late Spring. No point forking out too early.
I bought a dress watch earlier in the year. Wanted something slim, gold, no date and ideally no second hand. Was convinced I was going to end up with a Patek - I love the vintage Calatravas. But when it came to it, the older models on sale were too small and I didn't like the UFO-profile of the newer models. Ended up with a Saxonia Thin because I loved the case design.
It's not about actually passing the watch on though. It's about giving the present generation a warm feeling that their expensive purchase isn't solely a selfish act.
I seem to recall a lot of discussion of skin tone and cloth colour in Alan Flusser's Dressing the Man.
I saw the new ceramic panda Daytona in WoS Regent St. yesterday (in a glass case). Looked very nice to me, but I haven't taken much notice of Daytonas up to now. Apparently there's a 5 year waiting list!
I'm going for my first fitting tomorrow for my first cord suit. Went for brown (similar colour to those above) and a 3 piece SB.
Please do!I came close to buying the Master Ultra Thin 1907 - a lovely watch (went for a pre-owned Lange Saxonia Thin in the end).
I got my silk/linen too. It looks lovely - really characterful and slubby. Gonna get Elia Caliendo to make it up as a suit for next summer.
Craig, If you like Nomos, why not get another with a black face? Alternatively, you could go for a new Datejust in memory of your father.
