    The watch appreciation thread

    Dweller on leather strap. Infinitely more comfortable than on its bracelet. Looking at a black rubber strap for it now.
  2. Lelong: Wool solaro suit in a size 38 short jacket (approx), with 32 inch waist trousers. Never worn, no tags. MYR 3800, on ebay now. Forum price MYR 3500. DM me. https://www.ebay.com.my/itm/283578045178?ul_noapp=true Made in Italy. Sold by Anglo Italian in London.

    Just hard as a mofo to get. @J - those Seikos look really sporty in a very good way. I particularly like the look of the SBDC063 on the original rubber strap. My own experience with a 45mm seiko diver, the 6309-7040, is that it oddly wears much smaller. Very comfortable, and feels integrated with the wrist.

    Wonderful drape in the jacket! His hands look pretty long too, the sleeves are almost at the same level as the front, but this is not a short jacket. From this photo, the trousers look like they could be even fuller to give him more balance.

    Perhaps there is relevance still for pidgin English in our modern society today

    ^ Champagne at the JLC boutique, manhandling a 2 million dollar watch: Just a regular weekday for a Master Tailor. —————————————— Look at the unfused collar and cuffs on that striped shirt. Combined with the handrolled lightly lined Vanda tie. Sprez.

    Better a suit which fits than a suit with the fun features but with suboptimal fit.

    First fitting at the JT atelier for a new sportcoat in mini houndstooth pattern (although looks solid in the photo). Collar to be better fitted around the neck, body taken in slightly, and other magical tweaks to optimise fit. The feel of the Dugdale New Fine Worsted (NFW) cloth is slightly less rustic than I recall. Maybe I'm too used to touching the kerbau cloth. Close up pic of the cloth - previously shared on the cloth thread.

    Mark Cho , international man of menswear shares his “to buy” list (which includes pieces from the Armoury that he presumably already owns). Among them is a two tone Rolex. https://gearpatrol.com/2019/03/19/mark-cho-in-my-cart/ “I have recently been very interested in two-tone watches and stumbled on this particular reference. It looks strange on the website, but I was curious enough to check it out in real life. It is outstanding and absolutely on my shortlist. Compared with the photograph online, the Everose parts are subtler and less pink, and the grey dial is much richer in color. I highly suggest any watch nut check it out.”

    In return he can provide a gray market import route for those cloth brands.
