    IMHO it does look very vulgar, and even before seeing mimo's post I thought it kinda ruined your otherwise great outfit.

    Don't get me wrong though, I'm the first one who likes breaking the rules, so if you like it you should totally use it. I'm just telling you that probably 90% of the people out there will think it's tacky, so that you can take it in account when assigning your wrist time.

    Either navy or burgundy tie and this is good! Maybe you can taper the trousers' waist a little bit, it seems to me a tad larger than your body waist.

    Thanks for the thumbs & comments on last photo.

    New Kamakura-shirt today. The Tokyo-Slim fits like a bespoke shirt :)

    Ah well...you can't win 'em all I guess.

    I do feel though, that certain designs acquire a kind of vulgarity-by-association which is not necessarily intrinsic to their appearance. I knew when I bought this watch that it would offend many because of its bezel. OTOH there are certain limited-edition Royal Oak Offshores which simply scream poor taste, and yet people are selling their grandmothers into slavery in order to move up the waiting list for them.

    OK, that's enough vulgar watches. How about a nice hat instead?

    Oh, you're preaching to the choir, I hate how most RO look, and I really don't get the hype for them. With that price tag, I'd buy many other watches over them. Still better than Hublot, thought.

    Nice hat!

    Somehow, I missed this. What a cool tie--the color, the stripes, the fabric.

    Chilly today, so layering up with a cardigan underneath the jacket....

    [​IMG]

    New tie that me like a lot. This is one of those borderline cases where it might or might be more of a "suit tie" to some people. Anyway, I think it works with a SC - just not perfectly with the one I am wearing today, the scales of tie and jacket came out a little too close for my taste. Hopefully the colour contrast is great enough to alleviate that problem to some extent....

    In reality I'm probably a 43L (in-between 42L and 44L) so 46L would in all likelihood be too large for me regardless of cut and model. I have a JP Tilford (which I believe is made by Samuelsohn) jacket in 44L that is also just about perfect in the shoulders but that also could use some slimming across the waist.

    Clausewitz was a vulgar fool. Besides, we weren't talking about war either.

    Thanks CP!

    I really like that tie, just wish it was a little bit wider. It's an pre-sf acquisition, didn't know better back then [​IMG]

    Coxsackie - i dont hate the watch. dont love it, but certainly dont hate it either. but in the pic it looked two tone, gold bezel and steel case/bracelet. that might be part of the issue. either way, anything branded is bound to get hate here.

    pliny and pingson, nice.

    thanks for all teh thumbs yesterday, gents.

    The only shot that came out of this morning's scarf wearing was this one.
