Woo nice topic. icon14.gif Cars, cigars, brandy, suits, watches. Good stuff. I don't know how I missed this topic for so long.

Cars and watches I have talked about elsewhere smile.gif but the rest, not so much. I am a big cigar fan. I keep two desktop humidors (unfortunately stocks are low right now) and a Montecristo #2 is pretty much my "go-to" cigar. I like a robusto now and again too. I just finished a pile of Cohiba Robustos but I am not a particular fan of them. Right now I have some Montecristo #1s and a few Romeo and Julieta Churchills in stock. Will probably have one of these later on today, its a good sunday cigar cool.gif

Suits: I don't really go in for the designer suit thing. I just tend to get a few made up for me at good places in Asia whenever I am over. I have a few tailors with my measurements on stock in BKK/KL/HK and I order a few shirts when I need them too. It tends to be cheaper than buying a decent shirt in europe... Last ones I got were a black double-breasted with a white chalk stripe (awesome suit). its not something I wear a lot but it is a design I have always wanted. The other is a three-piece in a dark blue with a bit of a shine.

Brandy, yeah. I always keep a bottle of Hennesy around the house. Remy is a favorite too. Whisky, I drink Highland Park and The Macallan.

I have never worn boots, though those Boss boots of yours look freezing cool. How much did you have to pay for them?
I wear oxfords. Can be used for most situations wink.gif
The only suit jacket I have right now is a charcoal Giovani that I got from a used goods-store

Funny you should ask. I actually went down to the Boss store to buy another pair of those boots. They didn't have them so I left with a pair of loafers and then ordered the boots online. When I first bought them they were around Ł250 but they just came out with this seasons boots (I didn't like them) it's gone down to about Ł200 on their online store. The new loafers I got were also around Ł200. I'm not entirely sure I like them but I felt bad for making the store assistant run around looking for the boots.

EDIT: heres a picture

On second thoughts I quite like them. I just don't think it went well with the suit I'm wearing today.

Not quite my style. I like more the black sport-ish shows i have, don't actually even know the firm of them but they are with a common shape. They are very comfortable and flexible, thats why i like them. The nose is quite narrow from the end but not enough to squeeze my toes together. Anyway, they cost some 60-70 euros, nothing much.

I'm not much of a fan of very expensive shoes, because for some reason, if I wear shoes, they deteriorate within 6 months.

As for something fancy, I have this:

I think they have a pair of suede moccasins in brown. I want to get it but summer is nearly over so theres not much point owning a pair of suede moccasins. Maybe next summer.

Nice shades, I like the lens tint. I always go for something similar or a dark yellow myself. Something I got accustomed to doing a lot of skiing.

My everyday sunglasses are Oakley Flak Jackets in black/dark tan with black iridium lenses.

I've got a few pairs of other ones but always come back to these. Had then the best part of 5 years now and not a scratch on them despite some fairly hefty abuse.

These are my daily wear Ray-Bans. I literally found this pair brand new in the middle of my coffee table. It had sat there for a year and I didn't even know they existed. One weekend I was incredibly bored and decided to take a look inside to see if my (then) everyday sunglasses were inside as I couldn't find them. I've had about 20 pairs of the same model of Ray-Ban for the past decade, except for one brief period a couple years ago when I diversified and started wearing sunglasses by Police and other designer brands. At the end of the day my trusty Ray-Bans have always been there for me.

@VF94: That's the sort of colour I was rocking on my Ray-Bans before my current pair.

@sivis: I had a pair similar to your Oakleys, they looked too "fast" for me. biggrin.gif

Yeah, I prefer the cognac tint to green or black, it enhances contrast and depth perception really well.And people can see your eyes.

I cant pronounce myself about the reliability of the M47 (you are on BMW forums anyways) but the most reasonable here seems the E46 320d. Lands you cheap in insurance for best fuel economy (you are supposed to save cash), the car value wont decrease much now if you sell it in 12 months even if you add mileage to it.

And a chipped 320d like this can put out about 170hp!

I don't really know the names of the cologne I use, I just know them by smell. I use different ones for different occasions/seasons/purposes.

user posted image

This one is a personal favourite. It's from Ruehl No.925 which ceased operations back in 2010. Did a quick look on ebay and a bottle of this is going for around $200. I use this on smart-casual nights out.

Ladies love the Aventus, I can assure you. It has a very nice and natural smell.
