    ...on an entire new wardrobe?
    No, just kidding but when I switched jobs, I think I shelled out about $15k on just suits, shirts, and shoes. All on full effing retail price.

    No kidding. I liked the tie JRD posted so much, that I just ordered it. First order from Shibumi, so will see how I like their ties.

    I dislike watches. Seriously. They do nothing for me. I dislike the way the feel on my wrists. I have several Movados, very light. I never wear them. I mean. Nobody sees them.

    Edit: I don't dislike watches. I dislike wearing watches.

    Just let estitchy read this. [​IMG]

    I love watches, the thinking behind mechanical watches amazes me. [​IMG] That last part, around here a watch could be the reason thieves might get at you, so around here, yeap they notice. Sometimes when I drive I take off my watch and put on chep one so it don't pick attention.

    I love watches...but I agree with Clag to some degree. What's the point of shelling out $10k plus on a watch only to pull out your phone to check the time (I do that). My big fat watch gets in the way so I usually take them off when I get to work. My is just a poor man's Tag Heuer Link and not a $10k watch. I think it's a waste of money but I dare not say it in the watch porn thread.

    I have an Omega from my grandfather, three Movado museum watches. I love the Movado's for their elegance, the Omega for its sentimental value. And that's pretty much it. I'll wear the Movado's occasionally, but I dislike the way they feel with my shirt sleeves.

    lol. I own 3 watches and don't plan on owning more. I have a brown and black dress and a brown casual. I'm good. Although I may have started a hat addiction over the weekend. [​IMG]

    Fuark! I used to think that a 2k watch was way too much, then I started reading about watches and then I fell in love with the thinking process to achieve a timepiece now people don't understand me when I talk about watches and now a Jaeger LeCoultre Spherotourbillon of $234,000 seams understandable. [​IMG]

    Back to ties, jrd, that is one very cool tie you just got! Love it!
