Tif, I'm not talking to you since you made me buy five pairs of Allen Edmonds in a week.

 

OK, brown calf.  Suede, actually.

I know it may not be the correct way, but I really didn't want to worry about what shoes I was wearing. Although I do wear primarily brown tone with one pair of black shoes that I normally wear once a week to work.

My wife doesn't like the black dial with brown strap. That has got me second guessing the combo. I have seen it and like it though...

Haha! Sorry about that! What did you get good?

Are you suggesting a brown calf or suede strap?

A brown suede one, made out of a piece of a cow.  And your wife is wrong about the black dial/brown strap (with all due respect): it will warm the whole thing up nicely.  Especially with the suede.  Check out for example every Panerai ever.

 

A black and white spectator ("Broadstreet), a black patent with blue contrast stitching ("Times Square"), a brown shortwing - forgotten the name, a black "Strawfut" and a burgundy shell NST ("Bradley")

I like the OEM "Rally", but I know there are fit issues...


Then there is the brown croc look. I fear this will be too dressy for jeans and Tshirt wear...


Thoughts?

I've never once worried about matching watch strap to shoes, and I'm OCD. This really shouldn't factor in to the decision IMO. I could be swayed in either direction as long as the brown is a darker shade. There are more Speedy's on black straps that I like, but my favorites have been on brown straps; guess that speaks to the ease/difficulty of getting the right match between the two options.

Yes, my mistake, the Type XX does use a Lemania.  Maybe I need to pick one up to reinforce that in my brain...although I think Mrs. Dino would prefer if I just made the occasional mistake wink.gif

Best regards,
Dino

Nailed it. Rota and Mazzarelli are both awesome. I think all of my wardrobe will be comprised of Mazz shirts and Rota trousers.

that would be a most blissful wardrobe.

If I had a picture of my TWAT unappreciated Franck Muller Casablanca I would throw it up here to fuel the fire. Recently got back into this thread. Have been eyeing a Milgaus lately to join the stable of the above mentioned Casablanca, Chopard Millie Miglia, PAM 111.

You will get a vote from Dino for the tonneau case.  And actually I think it's weirdly cool.  Cf. Keith's unnatural urges.

BROWN CROC, FTW.

ALWAYS.

Oh, and since Frilly came clean, this may be the one day of my life I'm wearing better shoes than him LOL.

My (very modest) Allen-Edmonds Mora 2.0s (+ Daytona)....

Should this thread be newly renamed the TWASAT?
