Hoping to pick an olive one up when I go to Japan next month but it all depends on whether there's anything in stock.

Hey all. American Tailors on Bourke St in Melbourne has a sale on the remaining Carmina stock they have. They had a black leather chukka, a swept back double monk, navy simpson last loafers and other shoes I can't remember. I bought some Simpson loafers in brown calf for $270. Lovely guys in the shop. Ridiculous value.

Ooh, any idea on the sizes?  I shall have to see if I can run on down there tomorrow lunchtime.

Depends on how you look at it (the watch I mean) 

 

For me, I like the idea of having a few constants in my life. So for me, just one watch. I like to know that its the same thing that has been with me all around the world, from a board room in Tokyo to a cruise boat in Mexico. Its comforting for me, but I'll highlight that this is NOT the way most people see or use their watch. 

 

On a side note I actually have 6 or so watches but most came as gifts and others were experiments that didn't turn out quite right (had a watch custom made, expensive, interesting, never worn). 

 

On the other hand, most people have watches for different outfits and occasions. I've been looking at watches a long time, and can definitely understand this. I would say 3 is a good start - a dress watch (say, JLC ultra thin?), an everyday (rolex explorer or explorer II or even turn o graph which I like), and sports watch (G shock) 

 

If going for one watch, I'd have to recommend a rolex. I would say I know a little bit about watches. In my opinion only 1 type of person doesn't like rolex - those who think they know about watches, but actually do not. Rolex tends to be held in high regard by those who don't know watches, because of its brand. Rolex tends to be well regarded by those who know their stuff, because technically it is an excellent watch and certainly has the heritage. These are just my opinions of course, but most people I have met who don't like Rolex don't actually know much about it, such as, what the calibre number is, which parts of the movement are manufacture, the original inspiration behind the watch, etc. But I think whether as a collector or like myself, a 'one watch' person, knowing a bit about it is important. 

 

For what its worth, I am currently wearing an Oris BC3 - a $500 watch that has been with me 10 odd years, all around the world etc. I have purchased a rolex gmt iic, but haven't picked it up yet. Hope that helps

Could you keep an eye out for some 10.5s for me? ;)

Sorry didn't really look at sizes. Give them a call and I'm sure they could help

I was working in Soho, London in the mid nineties when Muji opened a shop. As I recall it was full of cheap, crap stationary, cheap crap furniture and cheap crap made out of black nylon. The Soho media crowd went nuts for the black nylon crap (jackets and bags mainly). I'm sure all the lovely Melbourne people who like to wear black (is that still even accurate?) will love it.
I did buy a pair of underpants there once. They had folded and vacuum packed and freeze dried them down to the size of matchbox (they got bigger when you broke them out of their plastic wrapper). They were crap.

So tell us Boff, what would be the one word to sum up your experience with Muji? :D

Congratulations on the ACT moving into the 21st century. If only the rest of the world would do the same.

This is my philosophy. I'm not at all a watch person, I have a dress watch (JLC Ultra-Thin) and a casual watch that I wear on weekends (appropriately enough, a Timex Weekender). Don't really see myself needing anything more than that unless I take up diving or something. There is a certain comfort in knowing that no matter what happens, at least I have my watch situation sorted.
