    It is the Seiko Men's SSC081 Adventure-Solar Classic Watch. Costco was carrying it and it looked like a great match for Whiskey.

    I hope that these pictures help. I really like mine, but they do sit in a weird place on the formality scale.

    Yup, I normally do the same. But I thought that this was just too good to pass up on.

    That is a great match. I thought about getting a couple straps to match #8 and whiskey maybe, but I don't want to have to worry about changing straps at a moments notice at 7am to match my shoes. Maybe I just need two or three more Speedmasters....Hmmmmm

    I match my belt and shoes, of course (not a savage) but gave up on worrying about the watch strap coordination long ago. Not saying you can't do it, just do not think it matters.

    I agree. I wore a brown strap for months on end not caring about what was on my feet or around my waist.

    I have a Panerai and used to swap the strap every morning to coordinate with shoes/belt. While I like the ease w/w you can do that, it was still a hassle and I think it looked too fussy - a little too anal. That's just me. That Seiko is nice, though, and I am just saying how I thought the coordination looked on me.

    Just got delivery confirmation of my recent Shoemart cigar and ravello acquisitions. Unfortunately, I'm away on business for a couple weeks :fu:

    9073 From Citishoes with Black Edge. Darker side of the cigar spectrum is typical on this make up from Citi, and appropriately so, IMO. TSM's version has antique edge, as depicted by other poster.

    My thoughts on a cigar balmoral. Still very formal. I only expect to wear these with a navy suit. Would not wear to a job interview, ect, where I would instead employ a Black or Color 8 Cap Toe. However, I would wear these cigar cap toes for social occasions where a suit is appropriate. Weddings, Christenings, ect.

    If my memory serves me correctly, you already own the 9016, therefore, since you have the basics covered, this would be a nice addition. No doubt it's a niche make-up, rather than a staple.

    The alden thread is a safe place for my wallet. I see boots I love, they've been sold out for years, will not be made again for 3 more years, and there's already a waiting list for them. SAFE
    I try not to follow the Epaulet and Carmina threads because they show photos of items I can actually buy, right now, 3 clicks away. Ep and Carmina also take special orders, bastards, both of them.

    Which brings me to today's RL discounted shell talk...

    You really should do it if it's not already too late.
    Sizes are going fast.
