    I have a Coach wallet that has lasted a long time(10 + years or more). I need a new one (my 3rd) but they discontinued the model I like, one of these days I will find one.

    I gotta say am I the only one that uses a bi-fold so it will fit my passport? It's just much more convenient. I basically have it for credit cards and rarely business cards. I use a card case so I can keep things segregated properly.

    I don't like moneyclips though mainly because I hate having to deal in cash.

    I am a sucker for watches too. Recently had to give up on my speedmaster. Just kept needing more service than I was getting out of wearing it. Had it for almost 10 years. Had the stieinhauser winder but in the end not only is it too much hassle but my kids are way too interested in playing with it.



    Outside of that never been a big shoe guy but I don't mind picking up nice belts when I'm out of the country.

    I'm with Daxx on the tools though!

    I personally like money clips. I like Chrome Hearts, very nice gothic inspired company. I love all of their stuff.

    I lose money clips and the money that's in them. Stopped using them quite a while ago.

    Like the TAG watches and that Omega Speedmaster is suuuuwheeet. I had a classic Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute (the one with the 24hr face), black-on-black with the AOPA logo on it. It was TRASHED when it was given to me, with no band and a really messed up crystal. In fact, I didn't know what I had until I took a close look at it a couple years later and saw the cartouche on the back cover. Some internet searching later, it turns out it was one of 200 made in 1967 with the "grains of rice" bezel on it. I was offered $2500 for it, sight-unseen, and when I provided the guy detailed pictures of the watch, he increased his offer to $3500. Bam! Sold. It had no sentimental value (My wife's Dad gave it to me and he had estranged himself from us a year or so before I sold it). Would have cost me twice that to have it restored. I told myself I'd buy a new one with the money, but a serious car repair issue came up and I didn't end up with much left.

    Here's a representative of what it was:


    One day I might buy a Navitimer...but I really can't see spending that kind of dough at the moment on a watch.

    i like it because i can see who has style... and you know me, i love looking at stylish things.

    it's been a long time so i don't remember when, but i bought a black bifold louis vuitton taiga wallet. i don't think they make it anymore since i can't find the same one on their site anymore, but the outside looks a lot like this:

    the inside carries 5 credit cards + an ID in a see through slot and it has 2 bill slots.

    his parents bought him a simple air king rolex when he graduated law school:


    i bought him a zegna briefcase which was another graduation gift. since that occurred almost 10 yrs ago, the 2003 season is long gone and i can't find a pic of it on the internets.

    all the above have held up well all this time though so he hasn't needed anything new in a while.
    probably the only thing that needs replacing are a pair of casual boat shoes he's had since before he knew me. they're by timberland and i can't find a pair that are as nice looking as the ones he has now (but which are falling apart). he has another pair of boat shoes by sperry top sider but those are borderline dressy so he wears them on casual days to work.

Regarding clothes, I’m the type of guy that loves watches, wallets, nice shirts and jeans, and also the flip-flop/cargo-short polo shirt attire. My downfall is that I’m one of the cheapest people on the planet. So I mainly do without. But there are the rare instances when I do get to buy stuff for myself.

    I LOVE tools. I love hand tools, power tools, bottle-jacks, creepers, flood lights, saws, drills (I know they’re power tools, but I’m on a roll). I don’t give a carp if I will only use it once, I just love the fact that I still have it. I recently decided to do a little Ikea hack to an existing buffet that the wifey and I already had. I started tinkering with it and realized that I needed to buy a circular saw. Well, with my Perrier Jouet taste on a Korbel budget, I went to Harbor Freight. It’s a little weird to go to a hardware store and buy a palm sander, circular saw & blade, paint sprayer and safety goggles, and have it be under $100. I know it’s all crap, but I was able to finish my project and it looks pretty nice. In the future (once all the credit cards are paid off) I’m going to spring for some really nice Milwaukee or Porter Cable tools cordless stuff. But for now, the Chicago Electric junk will suffice.

    About wallets… I will only own Coach. I had a Coach wallet for 10 years, and it was great. I switched to the exact same wallet last Christmas thanks to my wife. Apparently it was a little warn around the edges, but in my mind was still quite serviceable. I have zero complaints about it. I have the black leather tri-fold design. It holds all of my cards and business cars easily without any issues. I think they’re about $100, which isn’t too expensive. The only bad thing is that a decent amount of their products (if not all if it) are made in China. When before they were made in the US, which I liked. Sadly they aren’t now.

    Speaking of US made goods, I bought a pair of jeans about two months ago that were made here in Los Angeles. I can’t remember the name, but they’re comfortable. And they should be, because they cost me $175. This was the wife’s suggestion, so I went with it.

    Anyone have any suggestions for a nice pair of dress shoes for the office? I’m wearing an old pair of Florsheim’s that I either need to get re-soled or toss. They’re comfortable, but a bit weathered. I looked up the previously suggested Timberlands, but they don’t have my size 13/14E monster. The Amazon seemed confused when I requested that size.

    I’ll post more crap as I remember it.
    A long, long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away I owned a Fine Cabinetry and Furniture business. I sold it and its assets off but kept most of the hand, power and portable power tools. My garage looks like a mini shop. I have most of Delta’s portable line including Planer, Shaper, Jointer, Drill Press, 24” Lathe, Bench Top Biscuit Jointer, M&T machine, Dovetail Bench/Jig, and the center piece being a 52” Delta Biesemeyer Unisaw with ex-table. I also have about 20-30 misc De Walt, Hilti and Porter Cable power tools. I still build Jewelry Boxes, Entertainment Centers, Lingerie Cabs and the like, out of exotics. I do it mainly for friends and family and to kill time in the winter months. If I go out and look for furniture and can’t find the piece I’m looking for, I’ll whip something out over a long weekend. I recently made a floor to ceiling corner unit for a neighbor to display his old fishing lures. It’s Black Walnut and Birdseye Maple. It took about 70 hours to build. I only charged him Time and Materials.

    I was a fool. I took something I LOVED to do and made it a job. It was a good job and I made money but it took over my life and I didn’t enjoy it…so I sold it to my competitor and it was the best decision I’ve made. Now I can go into the garage with a beer and just cut wood. No Business Models, Employees crying, Tax man with his hand out and ungrateful customers. Working with wood is fun again.

    I love Harbor Freight. I have a store about 30 miles from the house I go to 3-4 times a year. You cant beat the price of sand paper, sanding blocks, grinder, cutoff wheels and Electrodes (yes, I arch, tig & mig weld also). They also sell pretty decent jigs for the table saw. Although I dont use them anymore since I bumped up to the Unisaw. I use them on my old Ridgid table saw when I set it up T&G and M&T cuts.
