    What are you wearing today?

    In the ‘glamourous’ surrounds of my office bathroom, evidently channelling Tom Cruise in risky business. I’ve owned this pair of Levis for about 15 years. This was during the heyday of the baggier fit jean. These were 2 inches in the waist too big for me at the time (but obvs they were worn slung low on the hips). Having grown sideways slightly compared to those days, I think they look relatively slim / straight now. The astonishing part is that the wash looks pretty much the same as the day I bought them. Although I cant seem to find pictures of me in them new. The smartphone is really a game changer when it comes to documenting our lives.

    Wing Wah also had one when I checked a few days ago. But price probably less attractive then the Kuantan seller, Im guessing.

    The design of the speedy is undeniable. But at 42mm its definitely a sizeable watch! The speedy “reduced” is more wearable for me, but the dial design isnt quite as clean as the moonwatch.

    Lips could do with some balm. Shea butter is good as it imparts a matte, rather than glossy finish that some lip balms do. Overall, I would say he still looks well groomed to my eye, albeit not polished to the nines. I suppose its a good thing as one should try to project an air of sprez in all things and not appear overly fastidious. Although I am not sure how representative the model is of the target or typical customer age group of Jeremy Tok tailors? A loosely related story on the topic of grooming. Oftentimes innocent and well intentioned grooming easily goes overboard. A friend of mine once had his brows professionally groomed by his barber when he had a haircut before a wedding dinner in the spirit of "cleaning up" for the event. During the night it was painfully evident to the whole table that he did indeed had his eyebrows groomed, and not in a good way.
  8. Amidst all the #menswear photos coming at us through blogs and tumblrs and whatnot - its easy to become desensitized and abit jaded from time to time with the endless reblogging. However, now and then I'm sure we all come across photos which jump out at us and we know we're looking at the real deal, the gold standard, the stuff that's not just inspirational, but hella aspirational. This thread is to celebrate these photos. Let's try to keep this mostly pictorial.

  10. John Mayer on his love of robes. ”Everyone scratches their head about my wearing a robe until they try mine on. Then they understand completely. It's a jacket, but it's more laid-back. It's a tent you can hang out inside of as you go about your day. It's a security blanket of sorts.” https://www.gq.com/story/john-mayer-greatest-fits

    In an effort to promote a return to sharing our shameless consumption and consumerism on the forum; this was a recent pickup of mine during the post-Christmas sales. Sidenote: What would you say the colour of the jacket is? ——————— > Subtle spalla camicia > the leftover stitching to promote the notion that this jacket has some hand finishing. > Japanese English copy

    I'm a fan of the guilloche, but I think my IQ is not high enough to be able to read the time on these without staring at it for 5 mins.
  15. Show us your Uniqlo, Levi's, APC, Naked & Famous, or even Armoury denim boys. Interesting find - an article about locally made using Japanese Kaihara Mill denim http://www.rawrdenim.com/2012/08/cheese-denim-malaysian-raw-jeans/

    Me wearing someone’s OP date. Believe it was bought in the late 80s or early 90s. I find 34m very wearable for me. You forget you even have a watch on.

    The squale on the top is based on four digit submariner references. The hour markers do not have white gold (in this case maybe stainless) surrounds giving it a nice vintage look. But the logo on the top the “S” of the Squale branding throws off the symmetry of the dial for me.

    Having that paperwork is so cool. Its in rather good condition considering its age. My father first entered the workforce in 1979. He said he made a whopping M$300 a month. A post in 2014 which analyses the retail price growth of a Submariner over time. https://www.ablogtowatch.com/rolex-prices-past-60-years-revealing-analysis/ Would be nice to be able to somehow measure relative affordability of a Rolex model over time. Would probably need inflation data, retail prices, and average wage data over time.

    I wore the only chronograph I own earlier today to a barbeque. The Heuer branded “Calibre 11”. It claims to be a 39mm case, but I feel it wears much bigger due to the square case and its hefty 15mm thickness. The original design of the case was 38mm, and this modern day version is said to be quite close to the 70s original model 1133B. The biggest visual differences are that the chrono pushers have been redesigned to a squarish shape, and the red chrono hand is thinner. I really wish they had stayed true to the original on the chrono seconds hand. However I do love the matte colouring of the dial - no bling at all. I find myself timing everything and anything since I got my hands on this piece.
