Florence and the Time Machine

Florence-and-the-Machine

I am super excited for the forthcoming weekend of May 14!  Why? I’m going to Orlando, FL to finally see Florence & the Machine in concert for the first time ever.  Before I continue this post, if you haven’t listened to this band before, I highly recommend you go do so right now.  Florence Welch is a vocal goddess and you need to take the time to appreciate that. Back?  OK, good.  So, my friends and I bought tickets for this show a couple of months back and the time is drawing near, which means I need to go shopping for my…

Award-Worthy Watches…

Award Winning Watches

The Academy Awards was last night and let’s face it most people watch the show to see what the stars are wearing, not to mention some of the outrageous acceptance speeches and of course the host’s monologues and between awards badinage. “Mad Max: Fury Road”, was the big winner of the evening with six awards in the technical categories… and “Spotlight” was named Best Picture. But let’s get real: without Googling last year’s winners most of us probably don’t remember that “Birdman” took the top honors last year, taking home the Best Picture prize. The acting awards are another story and…

Cuff Love…

Watches Fit For Cuffs

Wearing one of today’s uber-thick wristwatches may pose a problem if you’re like most guys who wear long sleeve shirts with cuffs that button at the wrist. The average width of the cuff of a non-bespoke shirt is anywhere from 8 to 11 inches, even if you use the first button on the sleeve cuff, which will allow you a drop more room. You could opt to wear a dress shirt with French cuffs that do require cuff links to close the sleeves and may offer a bit more room on your wrist. However, French cuff shirts with cuff links have…
