    Gentleman, I've been supremely busy at school but find myself looking for a new thin watch. Anyone have anything that meets this standard? Classic looking would also be appreciated. :) please message me if you have something.

    @ridethecliche , Why do all of the pictures of your sc's and blazers remind me so much of this?

    Oh balls. I guess I'll return it shortly then. Atleast the shoes will do well at that other place.

    Weird to see something older show up like this then. I thought the lapels were a little more fishy than usual, but I was hopeful. Too hopeful. haha.

    Can you tell from the tag that it was an orphan? I don't see a pant size on there. I guess the buttons look a little suspect.

    BLARRRGHHHH!

    Nah. Shoes look decent. Flash was weird. It'll be fine in natural light.

    How can you tell about the orphan-ism? I mean, the buttons are a tell but anything on the tag?
    I should have known better. They're using the griffin logo now right? I've seen one lately too.

    Blah. I feel like a lost cause right now haha.

    Oh yeah. I am pretty bummed. Was in TJ Maxx on Sunday and they had a Links of London watch on clearance for $99. Great looking piece with a chronograph, but the chronograph function was off. It was quite a shame because it really was a nice looking watch.

    I admit, I'm a pessimist.

    I will say that one jacket in my summer rotation is probably an orphan, but it's one button swap away from working for me as a sportcoat (it's like a charcoal blue fresco-ish solid), and I have a BB navy herringbone flannel I'll probably flip, but otherwise, I don't own anything that's gray area.

    Is this business about 100k for certain NES cartridges real? I can understand that kind of pricing for selected 1950s big crown Rolexes or some such. But NES cartridges?

    Very rare items, I believe that there are only like 15-25 left in existence. Also, I go as far as saying that there are more fans of Video Games than Rolexs (bold prediction, I know)

    Today I also ran into the heartbreak that was finding my first Belvest in a thrift, finding that it was my size, and then seeing probably a couple hundred dollars worth of reweaving work necessary on the sleeves. Freaking navy blue staple SC. Bah humbug.
