    Beautiful sweaters. Where did you pick them up? I've been trying to convince myself i should buy that NDG piece.

    Brigade and Stels both had that, as did Blackbird. Not sure of current availability though.

    hmm, in the past their color choices have been rather sparse.

    Tyler from Blackbird sent me this: "The XL tall shirt measures 21" pit-to-pit with a 28" long sleeve and the L sweater is 20" pit-to-pit with a 24" sleeve. I actually just found an XL sweater, too, which measures 21" pit-to-pit with a 24.5" sleeve." [The shirt refers to the green overdye oxford shirt--insanely undersized in the chest, as you can tell] I ended up with the sweater in an XL. I haven't tried in on yet, because I successfully floated it as a prospective Christmas present instead of buying it myself. I got the NDG sweater at Blackbird, too, with the 20% sufu discount. Fit is great after sizing up (maybe a 41" or 42" chest in an XL). I finally had to pull the trigger on both of these because the only sweaters I own are old Banana Republic leftovers from half a decade ago.

    actually got both watches at that shop on Colorado Blvd in Old Town...not even sure what it's called but I always walk by it and never been in. They have the usual suspects, but the AK caught my eye, being big, being bold, being black/red (one of my fave combos), and being cheap for an automatic. The leather band is really solid too, thick and not cheap feeling. Got the Hamilton and the AK on sale for about $750 for both. Wore the AK out window shopping yesterday on Rodeo for a bit and I was surprised nearly every store we went into a salesperson remarked on how much they liked it (got into a great conversation with a salesguy at Ralph Lauren that really knew his shoes,watches and clothes...wearing a Panerai himself. Great to meet fellows like that working in upscale retail since most SAs dont seem to know shit). Cool.

    Yeah, I know the place you're talking about. It's a sweet watch (only a "12", automatic, color scheme, etc.).

    Too bad there's none on ebay...

    Hate to be the bearer of bad news, GetSmart, but Adee Kaye is one of those Germasian brands that manufacture all the their watches in China yet lay claim to a German origin. Then again, you like the design and did not pay much for it, so all is well...
