    All power to the mullet an overlooked urbane statement of Sartorial panache.

    I'm finding my new sneakers to be functional and comfortable and appropriate for wear with chinos and a polo shirt.

    @fxh - I'm pretty sure that I had a pair of those Puma sneakers with the red stripe when I was in grade 9.

    By the way, is anyone having a re-direct problem with SF?

    Whenever I click on the SF homepage or any of the other pages, such as this thread, I am re-directed to a page entitled "Visual DNA - Finding result" or something like that.

    It's only happening with SF, and not with any other websites, so I assume that it's an issue with SF, rather than with my browser or computer.

    It's a good feeling when you do business with a charity organisation. Knowing you are saving Swiss orphanage/ villages. Finally decided on the date just 2. Oyster perpetual and explorer just too small on my wrist (I feel). Grey dial look washed out, blue dial flat , explorer again didn't feel the heft. Thanks @Terminator and @sliq

    Interesting that you cite size on the wrist as one reason to go with the DateJust II.

    In 2016, sizing in the above photo looks about right. Just twenty years ago though, you would have been laughed at for wearing such a clownishly oversized watch.

    How times change. Here's what I'm wearing today:

    ...and yes, twenty years ago I would have been laughed at too.

    ^^ Agree with you there. I think sizing is a key point when deciding on a new watch & a watch is large/small depends on wearer’s wrist size.
    I look at the lug end to lug end and see if they fit with in the wrist. I have 6.25” wrist and largest I can wear is 42mm. Below is a 60mm Pam and imagine a 36mm datejust on Stallone’s wrist.

    Interesting photo of Stallone. Zooming in confirms to me what has long been rumoured: he's had a facelift. Quite a good one, mind.

    Any recommendations for leather jacket alterations in Brisbane? Regents tailors say they could but I would like some other options
