My favorite style is cask-conditioned English bitter, difficult to find in the US but not impossible here in the Northeast. Here are other favorites: Belgian: St. Bernardus 12, Duvel, Karmaliet, Troubadour Obscura, anything from De Dolle German: Aventinus with Vitus a close runner-up English: Fullers ESB and London Pride USA: IPA - Dogfish Head 60-min. DIPA - DH 90-min. Barleywine - Sierra Nevada Bigfoot Pale Ale - Ipswich Summer Stout - Cadillac Mountain...
"Bare Trees".

Another thumbs-up for Tramontina tri-ply, I have a few of...

You should also look into Le Creuset for pots and dutch ovens. I think they're essential to the home cook. (soups, stews, braising). Whatever you do, only buy a couple pieces. There's nothing worse than some douchebag with like 12 pieces that he only uses one or two of. You only need a large pot/dutch...
If you don't mind a leather band, Nordstrom has a SA chronograph in this family at half price. Sort of a cross between #2 and #3 above.
I ordered these Pantherellas from Sierra Trading Post. The photos are very confusing, though. You have the light blue (color #11) and plain blue (#12). I ordered #12 but it's much lighter than pictured, basically the same as #11. However, the toe and heel are navy as pictured for #12. If this is what you seek I guess you could order #11 to be safe. http://www.sierratradingpost.com/i/2...t-For-Men.html

I bought a number of the Tramontina tri-ply SS pots and pans from Walmart. Not many in the stores but they deliver online orders free to your nearest location. Also, some, but not all, of the collection is induction-ready. Not so much a concern now but perhaps in the future. This is also a point in cast iron's favor. (AFAIK every All-Clad SS piece is induction-ready, but no Calphalon SS is.) Nowadays I don't use my SS skillet much since I got an enamelled cast-iron...
I have the LL Bean and picked up a half-dozen straps at J Crew, on sale right now (online only.) The straps are ~2mm too narrow for an exact fit but close enough for me. Make sure to check the strap width for the watch you select. Points in its favor would be Bean's customer service and no servicing except battery changes which can be done anywhere. Decent water-resistance with a screw-down crown. It's also Swiss-made if that means anything.

Liked them so much I got a pair of the "old" style 405's with the cotton lining at a store that had a few pairs...
