The exceptiong bein SWD items, but I'm in denim maybe 1 day a week, 2 tops, so that's a pretty limited demand. Nowadays,I order 3-4 shirts per year from Hamilton (if Mrs. TC doesn't hook me up for Xmas), maybe pick up one pair of shoes and a handful of ties. That's it. So personal expression is more a matter of accessorizing at this point, and what better way to do that than with watches! Also, with interest rates where they are and a somewhat limted downside to watches when buyhing smart, it's a relatively guiltless enterprise. I just need a way to figure out how to renegotiate this "one for you, one for me" policy with Mrs. TC, that's the thing that's hurting me! smile.gif

 

Stoked to see your newest acquisition when it comes in ....

JB, our honeymoon was quite similar shopping and food...with some site seeing in between.  Mrs. Dino came home with a Channel hand bag, Hermes handbag, Hermes scarves, and Chopard earings.  I used a bit more restraint and got a pair of Cartier cufflinks (like the ones Frills just picked up).  Ok, I only used some restraint because I was expecting the delivery of a new Daytona when we were returned to the States.  :devil:

I like my clothes to feel lived in. I used to freak out over potentially ruining things and worry about wearing items, but I don't really anymore. If I can't feel comfortable wearing it, what's the point. My love of cloth still dominates my love of watches. The articles of clothing that I have that our made from some of my more favorite fabrics make me smile every time I put them on (funny that my tops tend to be fall/winter stuff). Shoes are just shoes to me, which is probably healthy for my wallet. Talking to Nuke in NYC was eye opening, he truly has a love for shoes and it's fascinating to listen to him talk about different makers. I hate my feet, maybe that's why I'm not particularly in to shoes.

Man I hope I didn't build this up too much. Lol This won't be anywhere as exciting as the RO. I'm offsite in a meeting for a few hours and hopefully it will be on my desk when I return.

I am glad Mrs. JB is not huge on handbags and prefers some more reasonable brands of clothing.  Since we recently found out about some cost savings for our German wedding ceremony, we could kop a Tank Solo....you know for "us" to enjoy.

JB...I just consider myself lucky that when the Mrs. was super into handbags, they were a fraction of what they cost today.  

 

As for kopping a Tank Solo for "Us"....hmmmm...very interesting!  Keep me....I mean "us" posted on that front.

That is rather attractive and interesting, TLM.  Although I suggest you improve the efficiency of your photography composition by about 300% (only the bottom right quarter of this one is worth looking at!)

RickJ - Nice minimalist piece.  I would have chosen some sort of brown leather myself but some people enjoy nylon.
