    Roy. (expurgated edition)

    Hey. Looking to buy a pair of OG Roy's or one of his other slim fits, in size 31 or 32. Either raw/barely worn or ripped up and faded. Anybody got a pair they're not wearing anymore? Thanks!

    Left Field Jeans

    Hey. Quick question... I own a pair Indigo Selvedge Twill Chinos and am wondering how much shrink I should expect in the wash? Should I just do a cold soak or is it cool to throw them in the washing machine and the dryer afterward? Thanks.

    Also, it's worth mentioning that the watch community has a great online discussion presence, just like us denimheads. Two good boards to start with are WatchUSeek and Broadarrow.net. And over time, I've bought and sold a handful of watches from members on there. Check out WatchRecon.com - it's a search engine that aggregates all the watch message boards. A Hamilton Kahki Field can usually be found on there for around $200.

    So I own both the SKX 173 above and the Hamilton Khaki Field mechanical. I've also previously owned the Khaki automatic, but prefer the mechanical b/c it isn't polished and its dial is even less busy. I think both are really great. The mechanical I enjoy winding every day and wear when I wanna change it up from my vintage Patek (which really, came down to me as a true accident and the benefit of my mother's wise thinking 20 years ago). And yeah, I think it's way better than a Seiko 5. I've also owned the S5 fleiger in the past and while the lume on that is awesome, it's still a little clunky on the wrist. As for the SKX 173... Can't say enough nice things about it. I put it on and don't worry--ride my bike, sit in the sauna, take it to the beach, and all the while it keeps decent time. If it ever shits the bed, I just hope that a replacement is still affordable.

    Thanks for the link, but I was hoping not to have to pay full retail for them.

    Hey, by chance, does anyone have a pair of 78s (not 76), tagged 30 or 31 in the waist, that they wouldn't mind getting rid of? Been looking around on ebay/grailed, but they never come up. I remember most people didn't like them, but I think the cut would be perfect for me.

    @Maynard Friedman I've used this guy Jan a number of times. He's located in Slovakia, but he does great work. He's got a bunch of straps ready to go, but then he'll also do custom orders and designs. You can get a nice custom cordovan strap from him for about $100. Nice guy to deal with. https://www.watchstrapheaven.com/

    Volvo... I'd say just go ahead and shell out for a Stowa, b/c if you're anything like me (or the rest of us), you're gonna get it, love it, do more research, and then wish you went with Stowa or Sinn or something like that in the first place. Also, I'd recommend buying a new and not a vintage one. With vintage, you really have to get serious about the maintenance, which involves looking for a good watch maker, shelling out extra cash fairly regularly, and always being worried about your watch when you wash your hands. While I posted my Patek earlier, most of the time I wear my Seiko SKX 173 and don't think twice about water, dirt, ocean, bike riding, or anything else I get up to in the course of a day. Take it from me... Women tend to look quite unenthused when you have to pause the proceedings to safely take off your watch.

    Had this passed down to me not too long ago. Good riddance to the second hand.

    Where did you get them, if I may ask?

    Anybody know of any sales going on the 76s anywhere online?

    Damn.... These are pretty old, huh? How did you find them?
