    Just bought this [​IMG] from yesstyle, I need a new slim fitting white shirt as I've outgrown my last one (ah the dangers of slim fits when you're a personal trainer :$). First time in my life I think where I've bought a "medium" instead of a small.

    Just picked this up at Zara earlier today, it looks a bit like an Engineered Garments jacket that I'd been wanting for a long while.

    This is a 40 which is on the verge of being to small (hard to button) but the 42 is on the verge of being to big and looking sloppy when it's unbuttoned. Being southern california I went with the 40 assuming I'd have it unbuttoned more often then not, opinions?

    I've never understood why people buy watches from clothing companies. It's like buying condoms produced by Coca-Cola or a canoe from Honda; sure they may work, but why not just buy something from a company known for their experience in the field? [​IMG]
    exactky my thoughts..

    Well, this is not entirely true. For example, Ralph Lauren has licensed the Richemont group to make luxury watches for that brand. While it's true that Ralph Lauren himself probably has no business designing watches, the fact is he doesn't design the watch. Some company under the Richemont group umbrella designs the watch. Ralph Lauren has the final say, and has input on some of the appearance, but the licensed company does the rest.

    I was about to say that. While the Ralph business is so huge I wonder in terms of clothing and everything else what actually comes from his own design thought in other cases a fashion company is "designing" a watch rather than producing it.

    It still reminds me of watches you can get K-Mart that say "Jordache" that are made by Armitron.

    Jordache is NOT a clothing company, take your heresy somewhere else.

    I just got http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWN:IT&ih=018 in the mail. Made in ireland, great fit and quality. I cant belive people are letting sweaters like these go that cheap...

    Picked up a made in iceland sweater/cardi in a thriftstore yesteday aswell.Super thick wool and metal buttons on the front. Like 10$. I dont even dare to imagine how expensive it would be to get new.
