Speaking of handgrades, are those going to be restocked any time soon? The DC Lewis thread hasn't been updated in quite a while.

Am from Melb. Mine took about 10-14 days to arrive.
The pindot umbrella is absolutely stunning.
Considering getting the black one.

Brooklyn Decker, Sophia Vergara, and Kate Upton are stunning. An umbrella is just some polyester and wood.



I kid, I kid.

Bad joke.

kent, can you comment on the watch maker/construction and whether it is just a short run item?

It is not a limited edition. I think restricting supply to increase value is silly. Value should be intrinsic—i.e. simply, is it a good watch or not.

 

The watch movement is by BWAF, which is the highest quality watchmaker in China. Of course for $350 this is not going to be made in Switzerland, though there are many Swiss brands that are charging more than $1000 for watches that are actually made in China, or are using Chinese movements, that are objectively inferior to my watch.

I love the shoe! It is so comfortable. Will there be more offerings in the future on this last? Also, do your handgrade models fit similarly? I'd love a pair of those single monks!

There are two handgrade lasts, a rounded last and a chiseled one. Both are slightly different from the benchgrade last. There is only one benchgrade last.

 

The handgrade shoes may be restocked in three months or so. Hard to say.

BWAF seems awesome (http://www.tractionink.com/watch_wiki/index.php?title=Beijing_Watch_Factory). Will you be able to get different models? That would be highly interesting.

Just to be clear, I designed this watch. I don't intend on being a retailer for BWAF. While their own branded watches look pretty nice, I prefer to only sell things that I design.

 

If the Bauhaus watch sells well I might make an art deco formal watch, but that might be years away.

I highly approve the design of the watch, I love the retro 50s/"Mad Men" vibe it gives off. Though, I would love it if at least on picture would show a wrist shot of it being worn.

Seems like an awesome value! I don't think I have ever seen an automatic in this price range.

In general or for this specific style? There are plenty of automatic watches in this price range and lower.

Got my B/W shepherd's check tie in the mail a little while ago, it's really great.  I'll be using it for my wedding next year.  A great tie, especially for the price.

Not sure I searched long enough but I could not get where the benchgrade shoes are made, any information on the forum?
Oups, 30 seconds longer search result:
"The benchgrade shoes are made by a different shoemaker in Vietnam, also using European leathers. Although I'm calling them benchgrade, they still feature a great deal of handwork, Asia being the last place this can be done affordably. With goodyear welt construction, channeled soles, and hand antiquing they rival Crockett & Jones handgrade, at a much lower price. I will probably do a version of the captoe balmoral in black in a few months."

I will begin interviewing for a new job in the near future and I'm searching for a charcoal suit. What do you guys think about the Charcoal RTW suit? I need an athletic cut (44R/34/35 pant) suit and the description says slim cut so that concerns me. How long does it take for delivery once its ordered? Many thanks!
