I have a few decent H and M polos that I bought about two years ago and that have held up pretty well, and I'm pretty sure they're still selling the same style. They're not fancy or anything, but they get the job done. I think they were less than $15. I tried to take a picture of them, but I didn't think they did them justice.
Sounds pretty much exactly what I'm looking for. Thanks for the recommendation. There's an H&M store not too far away so I may have to make it a point to go there one weekend soon.
That's a classy looking watch Joy. Seiko really make some very nice watches. Orient, whom made my auto is actually owned by Seiko. They were bought a few years ago but were an independent watch maker since the 50's. Other than usage of design and engineering resources, they pretty much chart their own course still from what I can tell. (Still very new to watch collecting myself however) They still churn out some very nice pieces, like my Flight, regardless.
I hope to one day own a Breitling Navitimer or Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch. Both classic pieces with a lot of history behind them and just amazing watches, but seeing as they run about $3000 to start, that will be a very, very long time in the future
That coat reminds me of one I had back in Highschool and I really dig the backpack. I've heard a lot of good things about Puma's shoes. I may have to check them out one day after my current pair of Black and yellow New Balance's wear out.
Personally I'd never buy a smartwatch, they have no class compared to even a basic wristwatch. And if I want to do something on a touch screen I'll just use my tablet that I always carry with me anyhow and have a better experience. Here's my dream watch: http://www.amazon.com/Invicta-Collectio ... 7&sr=1-532
Also one trend I hate regarding watches these days are the damn rubber wristbands. They're showing up on watches everywhere, even the expensive ones, and they all look so damn tacky. I sure wouldn't want to buy a $500 watch that's held onto my wrist with a glorified rubber band.
*Edit* Speaking of wristwatches, I picked up a rather nice one today for $23 at Target.
I didn't really need a new one, but I saw it on the shelf and I just had to have it.
Yeah, smartwatches to me have no class. They are a nice gadget, but that's about it. That is a very striking watch though. Way too big for my tiny wrists
but it is certainly unlike some I've seen before. I hope one day you can get one.
I'm not sure on rubber straps myself. There's a entry level Swiss made Auto I'm eyeing that has that as an option, aside from leather, suede leather, a canvas NATO strap, or a metal bracelet. I'd have to try one before I decided either way. I can see one being a good fit for a professional dive watch though.
Very nice deal on the watch. Looks like a decent, basic Chronograph. I really want to add a Chronograph to my collection at some point, something inexpensive like that that just works. Lots of value for money to be had at lower prices. One does not have to spend a lot for a decent watch.

Bought a pair of black Doc Martens early last year and they've been ruling my life ever since. I'll have to post a pic of them sometime soon.
Very nice. Look forward to seeing them.
i'll have to post some pics of my new coat once it arrives, which should be tomorrow unless UPS is lying to me
