The sad thing is I tried all 3 on today and couldn't come to a conclusion. I wanted them all. I will take my time and bring the wife with me next time. From the pics I've showed her she loves the DJ with the jubilee over the others. She hates larger watches and I already have a cheap J Crew timex that's 36mm and she says the size is perfect on me. I'll definitely take my time and post some pics in here once I make my purchase . Lots of good info in here.
That's the exact reason why I sold my Inverallan. Lovely knit but was ridiculously itchy even with an ocbd underneath. Everyone's sensitivity to knits are different though.
Sounds like I've got some deciding to do. Thanks for your help guys. It''s nice to know that whatever I choose will fit the bill. For some reason I assumed the datejust was dressier since it's not as sporty as the sub and yactmaster.
I actually like the yellow gold and stainless steel datejust, although I know this forum favors all gold or stainless, and with the sub and yachmaster I would go all stainless steel. I love the jubilee bracelet on the datejust but like the larger face and thickness of the sub/yachmaster.
Greetings my fellow watch enthusiasts. I'm looking at purchasing my first real watch and I've pretty much narrowed it down between the following: Rolex datejust Rolex submariner date Rolex yachmaster I rarely wear suits other than the occasional interview, funeral, and sometimes to church but I'm mostly in chinos and ocbd for work. Which watch would be the most versatile as a first purchase? Thanks.
Hmm sounds like the calvary twill will be a little more of what I'm looking for. I have the navy ripstop from SS14 so there's no need for two cotton navy blazers. I also agree the brown homespun looks nice as well.
Thanks for the reviews mbaum and fycus. I wonder what's the difference between the moleskin and Calvary twill? I want a FW navy blazer but not sure which one will fit the bill. Mbaum you're right about the FW fatigues being longer than the SS. I've noticed that as well over the past few years.
I wish J Crew wouldn't just slap barrie last under every description of an Alden shoe. Since they are worn do you think they'd let me exchange them or am I stuck with them? I've heard their customer service is pretty good.
Have any of you guys had an issue with J Crew saying a pair of Aldens were on the barrie last when you know they aren't? I recently picked up the perforated captoe bluchers and have worn them a few times and suddenly realized the toebox is way too tapered to be barrie. None of my other Aldens on the barrie last fit like this. I know I've already worn them but is there anything I can do at this point other than resell them since they don't fit?
Does anyone know when the unis sale will begin? This time last year it had already began.
