    Went ahead and bought them without much thought since i was on my lunch break, figuring I could return them if i wasn't happy with them.

    Calvin Klein Navy Suede Wingtip Bluchers. Orig. $110.00, marked down to 82.50... After 65 percent and a coupon i stacked, i got them for 30 bucks.



    Obviously id never pay full, or even sale price for a shoe of this quality... But what do you guys think for a 30 dollar suede beater shoe? Keep or return?
    I think they're just fine. If you like suede, rock em until they fall apart. Hell, they were only $30..

    I have a few pairs of cheap suede beaters, too.

      I'm just going to assume it's this until proven otherwise.



      Or maybe this?!

          Just got in three Uniqlo XS slim OCBDs (white, grey, pink) and they fit great! The shirt is short, which I really appreciate, because it stays tucked, but can be worn untucked if I ever want an unkempt look. Some shirts the tail actually goes into the leg of my pants, so this is a big improvement! Now for some blue ones..

                42. More proportional and fits my smaller wrist a lot better.

                    Nice I have 7.5" wrists but monster forearms 45.5mm was just a hair too big but they are so thick! I always own at least one omega as I do like the brand. The movement in the PO is very cool and doesn't require a ton of service.

                      That looks like a PO2500. If so, I've had the exact same watch for a few years now. It's the last possession that I would ever get rid of.

                          Yeah I had to take 2 links out of my PO bracelet for it to fit properly. The brand definitely has a modern appeal to it.

                          It's a fantastic watch. It's the newer 8500 movement, which is fantastic. Although, the watch is pretty thick and heavily, but I hardly notice it.

                              Thanks! I'm really enjoying it so far. It's actually my first ever watch. The AT's are beautiful. If given the choice I'd probably choose the blue for versatility, but both options are very nice.

                                Ah, you got an 8500. I preferred the 2500 since it was a little less 'chunky' than the 8500 which worked better for my 6.5"-6.75" wrists. I got one of the last few before they sold out of the 2500s altogether at the time.
