    think casual yakuza style. Please no loafers!
    Well, the bacteria actually could weaken the cotton which could cause blow outs so when your jeans start to stink, at least soak them and hang dry.

    i will offer an opposing option to this. -Wear it as a SW&D piece, with barely a nod to CM. like you mean it, no half assing it.

    indeed. see you on the Battlefield.....[​IMG]

    Thanks, I wanted it as a handsome reliable daily with no need to reset the day/date, etc. every time i put it on. elegant simplicity.
    The band is to tie it in with my move towards vintage military/SW&D fusion.

    how badly? [​IMG] No, seriously, it is a keeper. And i gotta give a big ass shout out to @Takai for proxying it for me in a bundle of watches on shop goodwill for $160. getting a Bond level watch for that price with some flippers is a home run.

    Do get one, you will not regret it. one of the best watches in it's price bracket.

    like with Leopard print superstars, crisp white shirt sans tie, and a gold Seiko Cronograph? - just how I'd rock the navy suit.
    If the look is approved over here? as Stylish SW&D, Why not wear it over there??

    I found that same jacket. It really is very nice. Tagged my size but the proportions were off. FYI, not an authority but I'm 95% sure that's actually a herringbone weave. True Chevron is pretty rare in menswear, and usually only found in printed ties. http://www.remodelista.com/posts/chevron-and-herringbone-spot-the-difference Plus, for listings, herringbone will turn up more hits.

    Wow that's super old, I would have hard time leaving it(that's just me tho) but it probably wouldn't sell for much or at all

    110% pass. Yes you did find a super vintage piece of Gianni Versace clothing, but you also found a super vintage piece of Gianni Versace clothig that no one would want if they are shopping for vintage Gianni Versace. Unless that fucker was Baroque silk its completely worthless. You made the right choice.

    Alright, I know absolutely nothing about women's clothes, and even less than nothing about purses. Can anyone tell me if these seem legit? Grabbed (supposedly real) Prada & Gucci purses for $5 each at a GW that just opened 15 minutes from my house, so I'm not out too much even if they are fake. Tell me if you need more pics to verify, but any help would be greatly appreciated.
