    Best purchase of 2018?

    What was your best sartorial purchase of 2018?

    For me it was picking up a 1997 Rolex Submariner. The watch has quickly become my go-to and pretty much a daily wearer. While I do have some other nice watches, I find myself reaching for the sub more and more.

    I'll plead the 5th on the first question. But on the second, I bought the watch from Crown and Caliber (https://www.crownandcaliber.com/) and I can't recommend them enough. I lurked on the site for a while and waited for a combination of a) them having the watch I wanted in stock and b) them running a sale. When everything landed I made my move. Couldn't be happier with the watch or the service.

    Heather, deep cedar GREEN crew-neck sweater. I've worn it to death. Before this purchase, I've got only one typical burgundy crew-neck sweater (and some turtlenecks and cardigans). I so want to get other colors but got too much cool season clothing already.

    Out of my size. Only have navy left.

    I really love my S&M turtleneck but I think my most worn purchase were my AE Higgins Mill boots. I love them a lot more than I thought I would.

    While I did purchase my gansey sweater in 2018, it will not come for another couple months so I am counting that as 2019. Also thinking of picking up some suede Chelseas in 2019....yet to decide on brand and color.

    Hmm good question. Probably a tie between my Suit Supply outlet burgundy jacket. Eyed it when it was released then it hit outlet in my size at a price I could do.

    Tie would be my S&M brown herringbone jacket. Great fit and construction.

    I think the only thing I bought this year were a pair of AE Leeds 2.0 in brown grain leather and I love them. I wear them all the time, no regrets.

    I think my wife got the best deal of the year by stacking a couple of sale opportunities on my Xmas gift--a Brooks Brothers 1818 Regent fit suit for about $450.

    When AE did that crazy sale in September I picked up some first quality Nomad chukka boots for about $125--a crazy low price, I think. And even though they had a minor blemish, I was not going to return them for that price. I've walked miles in them and they're quite comfortable.
    WHY ARE THE GUYS IN SUITS HERE? HAS SOMETHING GONE WRONG?
