    Decided to take advantage of the BR sale and snagged loafers in two different colors for ~$60 each. I know BR shoe quality isn't amazing, but I've never actually suede loafers before, so thought it made sense to buy a cheaper pair and see if I actually wear them before going in on a more expensive brand. Just wondering how folks think they look (my slightly ratty jeans and socks notwithstanding):





    Maybe it's just the angle of the photo or the way the sock/jeans combo almost looks like sweatpants, but to me the stitching right down the center of the toe makes them look more like slippers than loafers. I don't remember ever seeing loafers that had the seam like that. I would probably end up returning them for that reason, but that's just my opinion and personal taste.

    Hi All! I saw a new logo today and hoping you can help me identify it. I didn’t take a photo, and kicking myself for not being that creepy guy. Logo was a stitched outline of a tractor above the back right pocket on some nice wool dress trousers. Anyone know what brand/designer this is??

    thanks! stay safe & be well.

    Looks like a pretty good purchase. And i like the idea of buying a cheaper pair of shoes to see if you like the style or not. I have been kicking around the idea of wearing loafers for a while now. The idea to use/start with an affordable pair is a good one. Maybe with Black Friday sales around the corner I'll see what I can find, sales wise.

    That looks great, thanks! Any cheaper bracelets that you'd recommend as well?

I didn't want to start a new thread for this off the bat so I figured I'd post here first. I'm looking for a 22 MM metal bracelet for my Seiko 5 Sport to replace the cheap nato it came with. I was hoping some of the watch guys around here could help me out with some recommendations.
    The perfect metal bracelet.

    I have no experience with Duty Free Island. That said, I did a google search for Duty Free Island over on WatchUSeek and found several threads talking about the website. The owner of the website also has an account over on WuS. I don't know if the owner is actively checking the account over there, but you can always try reaching and seeing what they have to say. Cheers.

    Anyone here ever buy a watch from Duty Free Island? Was it a good experience? I searched the forums and did not see a lot of discussion of this seller. Thanks.

    No appointment required. Just drop in, figure out your size and they'll place your order if you decide to buy anything that day.

    Edit: At least that was the case pre-COVID. I don't know if they've changed their policy. Might want to give them a call to confirm.

    I"m 6'0 210 with a 46" chest and 36" waist and in reasonable shape. I find the XL slim fit in Bonobos shirts is just right. I like a close not tight fit, and it works well. I hope that's some help. I can put up a pic if you want.
