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'm not one for rings or jewelry (aside from watches) but I have this ring:
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.
Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.
I love this thread cuz it'll provide plenty of gift ideas for the ladies on this board when needed! Some of you guys have excellent taste. OK, sorry to interrupt the man talk. Carry on!
I've had one of these for quite a while:
LA Kings Hockey - Disappointing Kings fans since 1967!
LA Kings Hockey - 2012 Stanley Cup Champions!
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.
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.
