this summer’s uniform

as summer starts to wind down, i’ve noticed most days i stick to a strict uniform.  all the things you see above are items i actually own: imogene + willie barton jeans, j. crew short sleeve oxford shirt, timex weekender, ebbets field flannel cap, and tretorn nylites.  rarely will you find me wearing shorts unless i’m on the golf course.  i’ve also retired most of my polo shirts because of the man-boob effect.

what’s your summer uniform?  if you want to put together a kit and send it to me, please do so and i’ll post it below.  send it to coopsamuels@gmail.com.

the weekender is here

after i posted about the new timex weekender watches on tuesday, i ordered one.  it arrived yesterday.  i love it.  it’s hard to believe i thought about dropping $150 on one of those timex for j. crew watches when this puppy only cost 40 bones and shipped for free.  having seen the timex for j. crew watch in person, i prefer the look of the weekender to that one.  it also has indiglo which made the 12 year old in me very excited.  i can’t wait to show it off the next time i go to the movies.  i’m kidding, but i figured i’d needed to share a quick pic before i put it on my wrist for the rest of the summer.  you can get your own timex weekender here.

timex weekender watches

i had lunch with a friend today who recommended that i invest in a nice watch.  i’m not going to disagree.  it’s definitely time for me to throw down some cheese on a nice timepiece.  however, that will require some savings which i currently do not have.  in the meantime, i’m going to buy one of these good looking timex weekender watches.  $40 sounds like a nice price to me.

new watch

i finally joined the pseudo-military watch club.  i’ve been looking for a new watch for 3 years and haven’t been able to justify spending a lot of money on one.  my new timex camper will be a holding watch to get me through until i have the cheese to buy a nice one.  i made the executive decision to pounce on this particular watch when i found out it was only $18.  that’s a price you can’t beat.

initial reaction: when i pulled it out of the packaging, i thought the face was a bit small, but it’s grown on me since last night.  i really dig the green band.  good luck finding anything this nice for under $20.

timex heritage watch

i saw this puppy today on sartorially inclined.  not a bad looking watch for under $100.  as i mentioned a couple of days ago, i have a little trouble paying over $30 for a timex but hey looking fresh ain’t cheap.
