Always have good things to say about The Watch Appreciation Thread. :)
DWF, might I put you on the spot here? As a craftsmen of great experience, what would you consider "fine" stitching, for practical purposes?
i know this is off topic but you are the most 'talkative Finnish' man i have ever 'met'.
By this I mean I would never thought i would ever 'hear' a sentence like "the mindless treacle that oozes on most (insert brand) appreciation threads. I visit Styleforum in order to learn and share, not for the snark or one-upmanship of conspicuous instakops. There are shoes and there are Footwear, just as there is helping guys out and merely typing for egos and bragging rights." from a Finn
all male Finns i have ever met were extremely laconic. Finnish women do talk a lot more
