    I got the XL. It's fairly snug but I also tried it at the store layered with a sweater + the sleeveless vest and it fit pretty snug to my frame. It feels rather warm which is good for New England winters. I was sweating in 2-3 minutes of trying it out .

      I had some paypal balance and I was looking for a blue faced watch. Picked this Rotary Chrono (Breitling Homage) off Ebay:

        Enjoy the Rotary! I have a very similar black-faced one, and although it is a total rip... err... *homage* of the Navitimer, it still gets numerous compliments, most from folks who have no idea what a Navitimer even is, so there's that.

        I love the blue-face and the more-muted silver casing and bezel of yours there. Mine is (like I said, black-faced, which is still OK, but I like the blue better, and) much more shiny/polished/chrome-looking, which tends to make it look a little more *fashion* watch looking (if that makes sense - something less-desirable) to me. I've only seen pic online of real Navis and IIRC some of those (if not all?) were more polished, so maybe my negative take on the shininess of mine is not warranted in a Breitling-homage sort of way. Whatev, right? LOL

        Additionally, I like that Rally style strap, and may look at putting one on my Rotary sometime in the future too. I remember chatting here with Vicious about Rally straps, and *this* is more of what I was envisioning.

        All that said... (wshew!)... Nice Watch, bud! Wear it in Dappered good health!

          I had a Parnis "homage" of the navitimer and lasted me about 3.5-4 years and I think it still works & probably needs a new battery. Someday, I'll have the budget to splurge on a Navitimer but until then, I'm hoping that the Rotary does the job The rally strap caught my eye as well. There was a steel (?) bracelet Rotary but I thought it was too shiny for my taste.

                That's hilarious, Alan! Is it just me or do the McAllisters look like they're desperately in need of a shine for brand new shoes? Maybe its just the lighting...?

                  Well there's some camera shake. That will dull them a bit. A shine never hurt anybody, though. I would still wear the heck out of 'em, regardless.

                    @ Jamie, pretty sure it's just the lighting. They look better than the picture I took with my phone.

                    @ alan, they're 10.5 D's.

                        I'm envious of the battery life on the new Macbook Airs. make sure you have a portable external hard drive that you can carry around.. the 128 GB fills up crazy fast. I have a early 2013 model 256 GB Air and I always carry around a 1 TB WD Passport drive. . Is this your first mac?

                          They do kinda look like you just conditioned them, but have yet to polish them. I know that look. LOL

                          Regardless, both pairs are beauties! Classics which should serve you very well (granted you're feet are comfortable in them - wish mine were - ugh!). Enjoy them, bud!

                            They're the most comfortable pair of dressier shoes that I own.

                              It is, its replacing a 6 year old gateway laptop. Pretty pricey but damn its nice. Everything just works seemlessly. I needed a new computer as I'm back in school and this fit the bill.
