    Can anyone tell anything about this PRL 40R 3 piece? It's a few years old and I have no idea how to tell who made it, what model, etc. Good shape, though. (despite being a little dirty in pics).

    Worth $200?

    In cooler weather, an assortment of sweaters and jackets. Leather, sportcoats (tweed, camelhair work great). Throw in a tie under the sweaters if you feel like it, though probably not with jeans. That allows you to add color and more variation.

    You can also change up the belts if you don't want to add another layer. Colorful ribbon belts, woven leather, surcingle...

    And of course, nice shoes are a given and will elevate your look over the sneakers most people wear.

    Obviously, you can also vary the shirt selection.

    Suggestions for a watch in the $50 - $150 range? Giving it as a gift.

    Looking for:
    - a classic watch that can be worn both casually and formally
    - prefer a sapphire (or hardlex) so it's more durable
    - is possible, would be cool to stay automatic and show the gears moving

    Seiko comes to mind, but their watches look a little boring to me.

    You may want to reconsider your choice of gift. Giving a $150 watch as a gift is sort of like giving someone a 10 year old Honda, yea it's a car but it's the bottom of the barrel. But, if you're hellbent on giving a watch, Seiko, Timex, and Seagull are probably your best bets.

    Try this: http://www.holl.it/eng/mens_suede_leather_belts.asp

    They are custom made. Haven't ordered yet so I can't tell you anything about the real quality.

    My shoes are to wide in the heel. How can I solve this?
    Is there any padding you would recommend?

    Looks like the tags on my PRL made in Italy do.

    With respect, zerostyle, I think your question with regard to wristwatches is perhaps too broad in scope to be effectively addressed in this thread. You might be better served starting a new thread specific to your question in an appropriate forum or, better still, asking your question on a site more wristwatch-oriented, like timezone.com or watchuseek.com .

    Not trying to play forum cop, you understand. Just offering my opinion.

    In response to the watch inquiry.. Checkout the Timex Andro..lovely budget timepiece. Also the Nixon line carries a few watch in that range.
