    Look a LOT better in your pic Juan. Thanks. I'm with Jordan. I'll be watching, and I'm glad for full wool.

    Got a pair of white canvas sneakers from Sperry Top-Sider at my good ol' local Sears Canada for a big $20. They look a lot like Vans Authentics. Not usually my kind of sneakers, but I needed a pair. Now I just have to buy laces.


    Like these, but without the plaid thing-y.

    Also wasted my 50% at Moores on small accessories. Got a pair of shoe trees for $10 and a horsehair brush for $4. I'll be buying my shoe trees there from now.


    Planning on buying a cheap military-inspired/field watch, like this one (I would probably buy an olive green NATO strap to go with it). Any thoughts?

    @Jessy: I'm not a watch person myself, but this Seiko 5 variant has been recommended about a million times for it's quality to price ratio:

    You can also find an olive strap for it at a place like this:

    http://countycomm.com/mil-series.html ( needs the 16mm I believe ).


    Actually, after a little digging, it looks like Seiko makes some variations with black and olive faces:


    http://www.amazon.com/Seiko-SNK805K2-Automatic-Green-Fabric/dp/B000LTAY1U/ref=sr_1_1?s=watches&ie=UTF8&qid=1342839265&sr=1-1&keywords=snk805k2


    http://www.amazon.com/Seiko-SNK805-Automatic-Green-Canvas/dp/B006CHMRAG/ref=sr_1_2?s=watches&ie=UTF8&qid=1342839265&sr=1-2&keywords=snk805k2


    It's more than the watch you posted, but $60-$70 for a watch is still obviously pretty cheap.

    @zerostyle Thanks ! I already have another variation of the Seiko 5, a great watch. While they look great, I would prefer a black bezel. I'll think about it, another automatic would be nice to have.

    Hmm.. maybe look through those orient watches that Joe always hocks. I'm pretty sure I saw a million variations of chrono/diver/military style watches.

    Slide Belts $30 each, I actually like these and the whole no hole concept, and the fact you can switch the buckles among belts etc.

    @Tucker940 and @Pratyk, I second Zerostyle's recommendation. CountyComm has Maratac NATO and Zulu straps here: http://countycomm.com/nylonbands.html. They also have springbars, watches, and non-watch items like milspec flashlights and Every Day Carry (EDC) items. I purchased my straps from here and found them to be very durable and robust.

    Just as I was recently knocking eBay for finding shoes my size, I just won a pair of shell cordovan longwings for $49. Pretty damn stoked at that price.

    I need to find a way to get on your will. Actually, I'm likely going to the Twin Cities for an interview late this summer and would definitely try to steal some of your shoes.

    Wait, wasn't I just posting about how that only happens with athletic shoes? ;-)


    Sweet find. Props to you. I looked today and only saw a black pair. I need to do a better job of searching out miscategorized shoes.
