  1. I basically only buy close-outs. Last year's fabrics ain't that different from this year's, but sure are a lot cheaper!
  2. It looks brilliant! I do really love the 1931 tribute dial. I would skip HSM, in your case; even their slim fit is pretty "traditional." Try Brooks "Milano", or the Samuelsohn "Yardley" fit (this is a fit made specifically for Saks), both of which are quite trim. The Hickey-Freeman "H" fit might also work for you, but they are fairly short jackets in that fit (a bit shorter than the slightly cropped Samuelsohn fit I mentioned). All of these are fairly easily found at steep discount, especially if you hit SaksOff5th or NM Lastcall during the right sale, and Brooks often has steep close
  3. It's somewhere between bespoke and tailored. They use pre-sized blanks but then customize the whole thing for you. I got a great price, thanks to a promo code (I ordered 8 weeks ago, I think). The bracelet is a Paloma Picasso Tiffany "Infinity" in sterling and yellow gold. I really like it, and it will work great for me until I can afford a Juste un clou. I think it looks great!
  4. I got a made-to-measure Brooks cotton jacket, today. Not bad. Looks good with a Pepsi.
  5. If Ikea made HiFi speakers, it would be those! I mean that as a compliment: they look great.
  6. I've put the new Speedy on a Vollmer mesh bracelet. I do think it looks very nice, and it's extremely comfortable. I need to the get the clasp laser engraved with an Omega logo, though.
  7. It's a very robust movement.
  8. It's been done, and better.
  9. He was a supporter of BSA, and was a professor at my Alma Mater.
  10. So. That is Mr. Armstrong in the middle-stage-left. That is me, four youths over, wearing my Philmont belt. Some sort of Casio watch on my wrist.
  11. I almost brought a third cat into the household. He was adopted before I could (his name was Hugo, he was 12, and had been at the SCPA for several months). Maybe I shouldn't bring a third cat in, but I love cats so much, and Hugo was so expressive, and I love old kitties.
  12. Thank you; I was going for a certain caricature of 1969, with that outfit. And yup. https://www.hodinkee.com/articles/the-omega-speedmaster-professional-moonwatch-caliber-321-platinum
  13. Probably not a big surprise that the Pre-Moon has been on my wrist this week.
  14. One of the nice things about working at my first real job was that we could* use the mastering studio after hours to listen to music. High end (at the time) Genelec setup. It was great. *I mean, we weren't supposed to, but IT had master keys.
  15. You can choose gold on just the strap (the bracelet adds significantly to the cost on a gold watch!), but agreed; it's the best bracelet on any of my watches, and I include the modern Oyster bracelet in that.
  16. This is something else, but from around the same time. It's a long story, and a stupid one. It was just three days. Today, I walked out to my car and discovered this. Of course the parking lot camera doesn't work. If you look at the dent on the door, you can see where the person got out and tried to "rub the dent out." Idiot. I have rental coverage up to $50 a day, so I chose "luxury." I hope it's something decent.
  17. I mean, shit, I've worn my Reverso swimming. It'll be a while before I buy another watch. I'm swimming in them, but will do. Santos, today.
  18. I really think a Saxonia is my next watch. God, it looks amazing even in potato quality photos, Dave
  19. Got out of jail. 6 months of bullshit over with.
  20. Stain clean up is easily resolved with a mattress cover. And agreed: the "durable" section suggests whomever made that hasn't had a good inner spring mattress. My mattress was $2500 on substantial sale 10 years ago, so maybe I just have a really good inner spring mattress. Several dozen people have slept on it since I got it, and they invariably say that it's incredibly comfortable, upon flopping on to it. I just realized that what I thought was just giving mattress advice turned into bragging. ?
  21. I've slept on most of the "internet" mattresses over the last few months. They mostly feel the same, to me (with the exception of a Puffy, which was very comfortable for sleeping). I'm still very happy with my 10 year old Sealy plush euro pillow top. It's halfway through its warranty period (not that I would expect it to be honored for anything, but it suggests that it was made for longevity), at this point, and hasn't changed much (I rotate it every 6 months or so). Any of the memory foam mattresses are relatively terrible for sex, if that is a consideration.
  22. I have experimented, since your post, and I'm still not sure how one fucks it up.
  23. I know how to put on a watch.
  24. It would be really nice on an Omega.
  25. I have a tegu lizard strap from the 1960s. It's a watch strap, and seems fine. Why would you pull hard on a watch strap?
