post #27076 of 52411

Anyone been watching the Farr 40 Nationals at the RSYS?

post #27077 of 52411

Any recommendations for places to visit in Singapore on a 3 day visit - sartorial or otherwise? Good photo opportunity recommendations are very welcome.

 

So far the itinerary includes:

  • Vanda
  • Ed Et Al
  • Kevin Seah Bespoke

 

Foodwise, I'm sticking to the local stuff - chicken rice, bak kut teh, oyster omelette, carrot cake, briyani rice, etc.

I'm curious...what do you guys as casual casual (non loafers etc.) shoes; more something like a pair of Sneakers, boat shoes etc.
I'm lacking here as I pretty much only have 2; a pair of very very well worn Clark's Db's and a pair of Addidas Sambas that I also use for exercising.
Just ordered a pair of supergas and was wondering what you guys wear and more importantly wear most often?

Dekline Santa Fe skate shoes.

Nice! Here are my Db's probably my most worn casual shoe though they do look quite 'frumpy.' Usually worn with denim or rougher chinos.
Finished...like the glass of water next to it?

I am waiting keenly for Kent Wang's plain white leather sneakers to come in my size, they are the only sneakers I've ever liked since about age 6.

So did anyone actually want to see those Joe's shoe repairs results?
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I'm happy with the results.

Thanks for bag replies guys. 

 

Now searching around for a satchel/laptop bag type-one. 

 

paparuberry's bag looks excellent!

I did some research on Basenotes and they actually have an awful rep with the Aus members there; shipping takes forever. I suggest you hold off a bit, and I'll update you when my goods arrive. No need for two of us to get burnt.

 

I hope you get it mate! Let us know how it is when it arrives.

If you like the pilot style but can't stomach paying IWC's huge premiums (which seem to rise along with the size of their watches), then I might suggest you look at Oris. At least they aren't exact copies of something more expensive.

 

I can understand the sentiment here, but I'm not sure it applies to the Nav B Chrono necessarily. Could you link the equivalent/copied/identical IWC? I'd be interested to see it, as the one's I've seen on the website don't look exactly like the Steinhart. I'm considering the IWC Portugese Chrono as well, but am reticent to lay down a large sum on just one watch - I like experimenting with different styles, and I don't know if I've found a discrete choice that works for me yet. Until I click with something, I'm wary of putting more than 1-2k down on a timepiece - the IWC is around 6-7k for the steel/blue chrono. Around 12-13k for the gold. I haven't looked at their pilot chrono pricing though.

Quite affordable, and if I remember correctly, it was one of the first companies to manufacture the classic "B-Uhren" pilot watches, along with other companies such as Stowa (which you may also wish to consider). Stowa's Fleiger watch is a classic B-Uhren watch, and the "Antea" is a lovely dress watch with a sub-dial for seconds.

Archimede have some lovely models and I think that if you pay an extra 20 Euro, you can get a "blank" face without any branding for a retro, WWII pilot-watch look (although that may only apply to certain models).

 

Thanks, I've looked at Archimede and Stowa, and I do enjoy their aesthetics and brand histories. I'll keep them in mind as I consider my options in the coming month.

They are, the Junghans Max Bills are excellent Bauhaus timepieces as well.

Still to this day i regret not putting my name on the list to preorder one of the for the Flieger Originals.

BTW check out http://www.gnomonwatches.com/ for pilot inspired watches, i picked up my damasko from him when i was in singapore.

 

Good link, thanks!

Nice Cp's!!!
Interestingly I myself dislike the Kent Wang sneakers with a passion...maybe it's because this is the first time in which I've seen sneakers too slim for my feet...though I do like the way it remind me of old cycling shoes.

Hey guys, does anyone recall if Jas mentioned doing 9cm width ties this winter?

AFAIK yes he mentioned going to 9cm for his next run (a/w), pending feedback from the forum. You can still do a pre-order//MTO tho if you want a different set of dimensions.



Maybe we'll finally see DRS after this clarke 100... (he absolutely smashed a bat pad catch that was given not out earlier).

Well one the other way ...

Some 8cm and some 9cm (and 7cm knits). He mentioned it here a day or so ago. Just to a search on his posts and you should get the details.

And by the way, should I be worried about having to change my SF name?

Do you have them? If so, can you explain more why you didn't like them.
