I do feel though, that certain designs acquire a kind of vulgarity-by-association which is not necessarily intrinsic to their appearance. I knew when I bought this watch that it would offend many because of its bezel. OTOH there are certain limited-edition Royal Oak Offshores which simply scream poor taste, and yet people are selling their grandmothers into slavery in order to move up the waiting list for them.


OK, that's enough vulgar watches. How about a nice hat instead?


(x-poast from this week's Challenge)


Oh, you're preaching to the choir, I hate how most RO look, and I really don't get the hype for them. With that price tag, I'd buy many other watches over them. Still better than Hublot, thought.


Nice hat!

p.s. Thanks to EFV for the tie - your work receives many compliments off-line.

Somehow, I missed this. What a cool tie--the color, the stripes, the fabric.

Chilly today, so layering up with a cardigan underneath the jacket....

New tie that me like a lot. This is one of those borderline cases where it might or might be more of a "suit tie" to some people. Anyway, I think it works with a SC - just not perfectly with the one I am wearing today, the scales of tie and jacket came out a little too close for my taste. Hopefully the colour contrast is great enough to alleviate that problem to some extent....

No they are sort of medium grey, they just look charcoal in that picture.

Have you ever been able to size down from a 46L? I'm also a 44L and recently found a 46L Samuelsohn SC for 40% of retail that fit for length and sleeves. If the shoulders weren't absolutely perfect they were very close. The jacket is being slimmed through the body and I can pick it up in a week. I've been told that Sameulsohn is a good brand when it comes to alterations but I dunno as the guy who told me that was a salesman.

In reality I'm probably a 43L (in-between 42L and 44L) so 46L would in all likelihood be too large for me regardless of cut and model. I have a JP Tilford (which I believe is made by Samuelsohn) jacket in 44L that is also just about perfect in the shoulders but that also could use some slimming across the waist.

Clausewitz was a vulgar fool. Besides, we weren't talking about war either.

I really like that tie, just wish it was a little bit wider. It's an pre-sf acquisition, didn't know better back then ;)

Coxsackie - i dont hate the watch. dont love it, but certainly dont hate it either. but in the pic it looked two tone, gold bezel and steel case/bracelet. that might be part of the issue. either way, anything branded is bound to get hate here.


pliny and pingson, nice.


thanks for all teh thumbs yesterday, gents.

The only shot that came out of this morning's scarf wearing was this one.



The outfit underneath the coat and scarf is this




Zegna suit, shirt, shoes. PRL tie. Wang in the pocket. No shave November on the face.

Overall correct. I miss a bit of shirt cuff on your left wrist.

But it's a bit boring. Monochromatic and risk-free choice IMHO.
