    That's pretty sharp. I've wanted to pick up a nice timex, but I'm a seiko man! Lol

    That reminds me of my snzg I have on the way.

    I see I'm not the only one to get a new Orient Bambino. What a beautiful watch (and I'm not really a watch guy). The domed crystal is so classic. The band is dark brown with lighter brown stitching but it looks darker in these photographs. I was a little afraid that it might look too big on my skinny wrist, but it seems to wear a little smaller than the measurements suggest. I'm very happy with it.

    Just picked up this new Hickey Freeman sportcoat for $250... MSRP was $1089. Needs a small bit of tailoring.

    Here's a shot of my beloved hound checking things out first:



    After she gave the OK, I tried 'em on:



    They seem to feel and fit much better on my feet than my Clarks DBs. It didn't help that I dorked-up the sizing on those when I bought the Clarks - should have sized-down. Doh! Lesson-learned. I did size down 1/2 with these (from my usual *boot* size, that is) to more of what my more recent dress-shoe sizing is, if that makes sense. FYI & YMMV. Very glad I actually tried them on in-store. I would've probably blindly ordered 11.5 instead of these 11.

    Anyway, it's early, and I plan to audition them for a little bit on the safe indoor carpet, tile and wood. But initial take says "hellz yeah!"

    Again gents... Lord&Taylor clearance section, if you are in the market. These above are the tan oiled full grain version (although that's a pretty *dark* tan, IMO). The camel suede pair are on their way from NY, as I type this. Same deal. $51.
    Thanks for the heads up... decisions! Im tempted, hows the quality?

    Bought the Herschel Novel for the gym and weekend trips. The watch is a gift for my brother-in-law. Quartz chrono with fabric band, good heft and feels solid.

    For sure, man. I'm loving these! They run a little long, even when you size down 1/2, but that's the design, really. I just really like the feel (comfy as hell, even though that doesn't sound very comfy), the fit (damn near perfect for my feet, YMMV), and especially the oil nubuck texture - it's like a softer, creamier(?) version of my Clarks Beeswax Bushachres. I have yet to wear the camel suede ones, but I'm sure I will love them equally once the snow melts for good around here.

    In summary, IMO they rock! I highly recommend them.

    I have those chukkas in a suede grey that I bought from Sierra trading post a while back for the same price. They are really comfortable. I just wish the toe was more rounded off. It is a bit squarish near the front.

    Bought that same Herschel last summer and its been my go to for weekend trips back home from school as well as the gym and a few flights since then; has held up really well for me (I had heard that they can fall apart easily)

    nice bonobos gingham: http://i.imgur.com/3Gu0TKA.jpg

    Going to try these gap pants, hope they look good: http://imgur.com/2XVgxCZ

    Also have that try-on warby parker box on the way. If nice, I can sell my extra ray-bans that have received no wear.
