    is it ok to wear a shirt underneath? is it true to size?
    Yes, OK to wear a shirt. Just not layering over something thick like a sweater. I find it true to size, but I am not in the SF size-down camp, either. Plus, with the extra inside padding, it fits a little snugger. That reminds me - it seems to feel a little bulky when you are wearing it, actually. But it's warm and good for throwing something on quickly when running outside.

    Found some Timex military watches online for around $30 shipped. Looks similar to the J.Crew Timex, but a few different details.
    Is this the one your talking about? I think this looks nicer than the jcrew one it just needs a jcrew strap lol. They are pretty much the same. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I have this as well as the wal-mart one I picked up recently. This above has a much smaller face than either the wal-mart or the j. crew. It's sharp looking but I didn't like the small face. Plus the way the pins are situated, there's not much room to slide in a replacement strap. The strap that comes with it isn't a Nato strap but just goes from the pins.

    You all need to save up and buy a real watch instead of these cheap Timex's.

    I bought a bunch of stuff for the summer. Got the lightweight Cargo shorts for 20$(Sweet).

    I'm Ticked-off about them bringing the price back up from items that were on sale (the OBCD white shirt, The Bowery Messenger bag, etc). Oh well, I'll get those next time.

    Could you tell me where you found this one? My wife is looking for a military-style watch with a smaller face.

    That pretty much is the same watch as the JCrew Kids Timex. It's just a recolor of the Timex Camper.

    I'm not saying you need to get a $5K Omega watch, but really there are much better options out there then a $30 Timex's from Wal-Mart. Look at your watch like you would a pair of shoes. If you save up a little you can get something a lot nicer that will last for years.

    Yeah, a cheap pair of dress shoes will be unwearable in a year but it's not like a Timex is going to just crap out on you. It'll perform the exact same function as a watch that cost 10 times as much. Maybe this is heresy, but for some reason I've always thought of a watch as more jewelry than clothing so it's not really a priority for me.

    So you cant change the straps on this black one at all?

    No, you can. http://www.styleforum.net/showthread...27773&page=335 ( ^ Scroll down) See, I did it. You have to cut off the original strap. The watch is nice, but every time I wear it, I feel like I'm 7 years old again.

    I found it VERY tight. Not much room between pin and casing. The major drawback, tho, to this watch is the small face.

    Sunwashed red chambray shirt arrives. Verdict: perfect.

    I eat my words. And my dirty old sneakers as well. The color is more saturated than I thought it would be. The fit is perfect. & it's soft as hell.

    It is actually about 50% bigger than what the GIs wore.
    The J.Crew Timex is huge compared to the Marlin and other earlier Timex watches.

    Sorry, I'm talking about the black face Timex "camper" watch. That watch is small.

    Oh what a snob. Timex IS a real watch. They're good looking and unpretentious and they last.
