Come on now. Finance guys are no worse dressed than any other job or profession.

If you do want to rely on stereotypes or cliches: jeezus, give me bankers over lawyers any day. Patagonia vests are a million times better than box-cut Jos A. Bank suits worn with short black socks and discount Allen Edmonds.

What about IT and engineering folks? Dear lord.

Come to think of it: is there any profession that dresses particularly well? I’m stumped.
Even clothing designers don’t all dress well.

I work in finance, but the firm is owned by a law firm - there’s no real difference in how either dress TBH, both dress terribly.

what about the fact that the DD is actually very beautiful? Is that not reason enough?

Oh wait.....I need to worry if others feel the same or maybe don't??

WTF :confused:

I was really referring to “finance bros” as the term is commonly used, rather than anyone who works in finance. It’s not just the fact that they dress badly but that it’s combined with obnoxious behaviour, arrogance, megalomania and often a pathological need to constantly signal their wealth.

My vote for best dressed profession would probably be architects. Not that they are all well dressed but they have the best batting average in my observed experience.

I’m surprised this needs to be explained, but when you walk into an art gallery do you think it’s enough to walk from painting to painting and say to yourself “this painting looks nice” and “that painting doesn’t look nice” without any further thought?

The surface level beauty of a thing is only one small component of what makes it interesting.

in Electric Kool-Aid wolfe was already doing the white suit thing, he explains a bit of how on the east coast everyone thought he was kind of a bohemian dude for his clothes.

and then he meets the merry pranksters and realizes on the west coast he's just another square

This is basically what happens when I go to an art museum to look at paintings.

I don't follow your example, but to be clear and remain on-topic, we're talking about watches. You would be hard pressed to find a person into watches (and perhaps not) who does not like the looks of the DD.

It was an analogy that was intended to help illustrate the point that things have meaning and purpose beyond their surface level prettiness. The point applies to watches in exactly the same way.

Still in pursuit of a full gold piece. After trying a few day dates I'm starting to feel they might be too bold (as an identifiable icon) for my taste. I had the rose gold aqua terra on my radar as well, but now I've stumbled upon this 38mm constellation. What do you folks think of this guy (assuming too that I could get it at a pretty deep discount...):

Like you I am looking for a (full?) gold watch. First I wanted a day date too, but I think I will be bored after a while. So now I am torn between these two daytonas:

I like both equally; the sportiness of the oysterflex and ceramic bezel, but also the luxurious look of the full gold bezel and bracelet.

Help me out guys, convince me why one would be "better" than the other. You decide the context.

I prefer the oysterflex Daytona.
