    ^^ The hood kills it.

    Filippa K FW08 had some nice variations on the overcoat you could look into. Try calling their San Francisco store to see if they have anything left over.

    The hood is removable

    Only if it's made in USA but not available here and exclusively in japan while remaining designer and a nod to traditional fishing vests.

    although a picture might help decide; yes, definitely!

    Yes or no? Some details are below:

    - Brandname: Raymond Weil; Series: Parsifal (RW's top-of-the-line series)

    - Shape: Rectengular. But as you may see it is not an absolute rectangle-- that's one of the reasons I like this watch.

    - The gold tone on the wristlet exists only in the middle of the first, second, third and fourth links, starting each side of the bezel. Hence, the remaining links, which you would not see in the photo, do not have that gold tone-- another thing I like about this watch, as I don't like gold tone watches at all and am not fond of two tones, but the gold tone is relatively understated in this particular watch.

    - The watch is very slim, extremely thin in terms of depth. It would not catch to the sleeves of a shirt.

    My concerns:

    - is it to dressy?
    - does not look like a men's watch enough?
    - depending on my outfit, would I want to sport a bulkier watch?

    - If you have to ask, then the answer is probably yes.
    - Yes.
    - Again, if you're not 100% sure that you want a watch worn strictly w/ suit, then probably yes.


    As an aside, I don't like two tone watches, and I don't like it here either. Also, it's a quartz. [​IMG]

    It's kinda pricey but I've never seen a crombie I like this much. What do you think?

    yes. I would get the jacket when apc hits 50% off. (if they still have it). It's a good alternative to the baracuta.
