The Stylist Manifesto: First Day Of Class

If you’ve been following my Instagram lately (@stylstmanifesto) or my blog (despite my sporadic writing schedule), you’ll notice I tend to mix eras. Often this is done by seamlessly blending modern pieces with those of a vintage aesthetic. This ensemble was n exception. The driver’s cap is reminiscent of 1950’s California as are the tie and cardigan. The faint striping of said sweater contrasts the subtle striping of the tie and the almost indistinguishable black ticking of the jacket. For a bit of complication, a multi-check patterned button down peeks from beneath the cardigan and is interrupted by the aforementioned vintage tie. Then I selected Japanese tailored denim by gap with a classic Brando/Dean cuff. Finally, as two complimentary garnishes, I chose the super limited (released 2012 and sold out everywhere) Clot X G-shock Translucent Red watch.  As the blue and red palettes are always complimentary, the choice was obvious. 🙂

Buying Replica Watches That Last

Replica watches many not always be as good as they seem when you first look at them online. There are many things that can go wrong with a knockoff if you don’t know where to get it from or what to look for. The store and the warranty are very important when buying a new imitation watch and it is usually a sign of the quality you are getting. Despite the fact that fake watches are much cheaper then the originals, they shouldn’t only be good for a month or two. The hundreds of dollars spent on a copy should at least offer some lasting quality; otherwise it is not worth getting one.

No matter if is made of steel or has gold platting, every watch will show deterioration in time but the period it takes for it to turn into a bad looking timepiece is very important. Wearing a fake watch everyday for two months should not result in it becoming faded and ugly and if this may happen, it should be covered by the warranty agreement. Always read it carefully so that you know what to expect. Usually, a store that guarantees their products for a long period of time is confident that they are good enough to last at least that long. Those that only offer a 30 day warranty and the state of the watch is examined by them are something to avoid.

Of course, the aspect of the replica watch is not the only thing you need to worry about and the movement can sometimes be quite troublesome. If you notice anything wrong with it as soon as you get it, be sure to contact the store and get your money back or another model. It usually takes some time for the movement to break down so anything which is less than perfect from the start is not good.

In conclusion, the store should offer a long warranty period for fake watches because there are plenty of products out there that can create a bad image. Replica watches can be a great investment if they look and work properly.

Popular with celebrities like Johnny Depp, soccer star David Beckham and Chris Daughtry of American Idol fame, leather cuff watches can be a great accessory if you’re looking to revamp your style or just add a little “trend” to your look.  But not all cuff watches are created “equal,” and they come in a variety of styles and sizes.   

Johnny Depp is clearly the “Accessory King of Hollywood” and his style perfectly blends with leather cuff watches.  Fossil has a large and eclectic selection with the majority of pieces under $100 (style shown $75).

For a more understated and “slimmer” leather cuff watch (like this classic version worn by Robert Redford in 1975’s Three Days of the Condor) try Diesel.  $140 for this model.
