    This is the equivalent of a SF "Arms race". The shoe damage and watch damage threads qualify as well. But that's like comparing Navys. This is taking into account the entire armed forces.

    Here are a couple more:

    After swearing to the baby Jesus that I would not buy anything more this year since I have more clothes than two men can wear, this week I bought a taupe coloured French cuff shirt -- because I didn't own a taupe French cuffed shirt -- and a pair of jeans. No pics, my sister has my digital camera.

    Oh, and a bunch of Moleskine notebooks if that counts...

    I need an intervention.

    - Senior Executive for a Professional Services company that specialises in strategy for the worlds top 10 ITC vendors. I look after our 3rd largest account for Asia Pacific.

    - like I said, I haven't shopped for clothes for a while - also I am very black & white, so when I change I do it properly..
    - correction, I consume watches not collect! [​IMG] last one was the Panerai 233J

    NICE- hehe- what about the Alfa? Or is that not new? [​IMG]
    - I bought the Alfa for my 38th last year..
    - this year I bought the Panerai 233J
