What is the blue quilted jacket? Thanks

Nice boots, but the watches are not up to par to the boots IMO.

That's because 'nice' watches cost a lot more than 'nice' shoes. I only have 1 really nice watch and a bunch of others that I like the look of but cost me less than a few hundred each.

Yup. I don't like that logic that everything you own has to be proportional in cost.

Yeah, I buy what I think looks good or I find comfortable in a price range that does not put me in the poor house. If I had unlimited funds, would I buy an IWC over a Christoper Ward watch? Sure, but I don't so a $500 watch is more than good enough for me.

 

 

To be honest with you, that shirt in the last pic was $20 from Uniqlo and the corduroy blazer cost me $60 from Lands End but they fit me well so I'm happy with them.

No need to apologize. My guess is that there are many like me who prefer balance and like to hear experiences, both good and bad. Seems ridiculous to think that you were looking for a fight.
