    Could there be such a thing?

    That was my initial thought too. There's an older gentleman who goes to my church who wears a kilt and short jacket most Sundays.

    Anyone with an opinion of "The Tie Bar"

    I bought a few cotton and grenefaux ties from them quite a while back and still wear them. I recall not being very impressed with their silk ties though and promptly returned them.

    Be sure to post it up once the mods are complete. I've got an SKX007 but recently got the similar but slightly smaller SBCM023 perpetual calendar and it's rarely left my wrist over the past 6 weeks and I cannot see myself ever wanting to wear my SKX in its current form again so I've been...

    January Acquisitions

    I have the AWW and many other pair of Aldens but I've always found my AWW to fit a little more snugly than other shoes on the Barrie last. If you are in NYC as your profile says, it might be worthwhile to go into Moulded Shoe and be properly fitted. Even if you aren't purchasing from them, they...

    I'm not usually a fan of roman numerals but that's a pretty nice execution. There's a great balance between the size of the font there and the amount of white space.

    January Acquisitions

    It's February but I did take advantage of some after-Holiday pricing and make a couple noteworthy purchases last month: Nearly all of my winter outerwear is navy or some shade of brown or olive drab and I wanted something a little more lively so I went with a Holubar "Deer Hunter" parka in...

    Do I need clean cut haircut?

    A #3 is a high and tight? In the Marines that would be low-reg! :hi: (I do like the "A good officer doesn't wait that long." part though) As for the OP - I'd get it cleaned up a bit on the sides and in the back and maybe trim the length but overall, I don't think it's too terrible. They hired...

    Would You Wear A Cape?

    I think I need to get a cape to more thoroughly embarrass my daughter when I pick her up from school or at a friend's house.

    Lapel Pins?

    This begs the question - Why isn't the emblem of goldsmiths a gold chasing hammer?

    Lapel Pins?

    I'll contribute to this resurrected thread... If I am wearing a suit or sportcoat I'll almost always wear a tiny Marine Corps lapel pin. Most people don't know what it is when they quickly glance at it, even many people who served in other branches and it very rarely elicits any sort of...

    Another vintage watch today, this time the Heuer Professional 1000 980.023L: The lume is surprisingly good for its age, just not very long lasting. I think this one had been relatively babied before it landed on my doorstep.

    My thrifted 50 year old Vicuña coat

    Awesome find! I hope it fits you well.

    This particular one has the 9f61 quartz which is supposed to be at +/- 10 seconds a year.

    ^^ I love that Milguass and if I were ever to get a newish Rolex, that one is high up on the list. Rollies? I'm wearing my fancy diver today:

    What shirts do you wear during summer?

    I like 100% linen the first time I wear a brand new one, but I hate all the wrinkles and find I never really stick with them throughout the summer. I prefer a linen/cotton blend. I think they wear a lot more comfortably during the day, especially if you are wearing them to the office, and they...

    Next step after AE jeans?

    It's hard to go wrong with the Levi's 501. I also like some of the vintage cut ones and have a pair from LVC that I believe is their 1954 model that are very comfortable (slightly higher rise than the current 501 fit).

    It is indeed stainless steel. This is from the "Full Metal Series" and was offered in this silver, a gold color stainless steel, and a very cool black DLC coated version. The gold looks pretty gaudy in online photos (and full disclosure, I am not generally a fan of gold) but it is a lot more...
