    Damn that pic is HOT. It's so close up, there's so much detail. It makes me feel dirty.
    +1 I love how that watchband is brought out in that picture.

    I would say nice watch but last time I thought that on this board it ended up being a $30,000 dollar watch. What the hell do I know about watches. [​IMG]

    Thanks. The watch is a Seiko 5, which you can get for less than $75. If it were $30k I'd be scared to death to wear it.

    ^ Watching the Epaulet video I kept thinking of CunningSmeagol's comment from another thread:

    These "are my shoes okay" threads are getting a touch wearisome. I have never seen a perfect pair of shoes. They ALL have imperfections, especially at the welt/waist. . . .
    If you buy C/J, Alden, Carmina, and the like, you expect to see these issues. Alden wouldn't be Alden without a utilitarian looking welt that looks like one of 100 made in an assembly line worker's day. Some guy woke up at 6am, thought to himself, I am going to make a zillion durable no-nonsense Massachusetts welts today. If I make them too nice, the shoe will look gay.
