HIBAW! (Honey I Bought Another Watch!)
‘Dads and Grads’ season is over! From now until December, in the event that you need another watch, you must get it for yourself. And, it will set you back MORE than you expected to pay!
No, costs are not going up (that I know of). This has nothing to do with the fluctuating of the unfamiliar trade markets! This has to do with the way that without the affectation of a ‘present giving occasion’ like a birthday or a commemoration; on the off chance that you get yourself another watch (and let’s be honest – by uprightness of the way that you choose for read articles on Monochrome.nl – you presumably have a rundown of watches 10-profound that you need to get) you must get a present for your significant other or sweetheart or partner!
Now for the well established inquiry: what to get her? Another watch, or paradise preclude, a MATCHING watch is out of the question! Some Manufactures produce fine women’s adornments – Audemars Piguet, Piaget and Montblanc to name yet a few. Then obviously, there are gems fabricates that are known for their watches – Cartier, Tiffany, Harry Winston and Van Cleef & Arpels to name a few.
Let’s avoid those undeniable choices. Let’s put our thinking-covers on and sort out a couple of various approaches to say: “On my way back from picking up my new watch, I saw this and figured you may like it!”
Buying women’s satchels can be somewhat of a test in case you’re not used to it. Let me give a portion of my collected insight from twelve or so long stretches of practice: really LOOK AT the sack your accomplice utilizes; what is it like? Is it BIG? Is it little? Does it have a shoulder tie? Does it have a zipper or some sort of conclusion on the top? What sorts of things does she keep in it: a PC? Workout clothes? A wallet and keys? A voodoo doll that looks dubiously like YOU with a few huge pins stuck in the wrist, the heart and the wallet? The essential principles to which I attempt to stick, were given to me by my significant other when we were courting: a sack must be sufficiently large to convey the entire world in it. It ought to have ties adequately long so she can fit it behind her – even with a coat! And, it ought to have a zipper or something to quit for the day top to hinder easygoing pick-pockets (the experts don’t actually mind on the off chance that you have a zipper or a furnished security detail!) Now, proceed to visit your companions at Louis Vuitton. If you don’t have a companion at Louis Vuitton (“LV” or at times ‘Louie V’) get one! Over the previous 12 years I’ve discovered that little can communicate regret at being hard, inhumane, thankless and undeserving like another LV bag!
On the complex front, there is not really a circumstance that the standard earthy colored and tan monogrammed material LV example can’t address: extraordinary for a professional lady, working in an office and still completely reasonable for supper and a show.
Something you might not have thought about Louis Vuitton’s essential monogrammed material bags: they are basically indestructible. As long as you abstain from penetrating the sack or deliberately running it over with a Mack Truck, it will keep going for quite a long time! (Louis Vuitton offer fix and rebuilding administrations as well!) Another thing about them: they can be extremely, practical.
The SPEEDY sack is similar to a specialists pack in shape. It has a zipper that runs along the top focus of the sack that permits it to be shut fully. It has two leather handles mounted on either side of the zipper in the focal point of the bag. A mark detail of the Speedy pack is the metal lock that permits the zipper to be completely gotten when in transit! The Speedy comes in various sizes going from 25 cm (alluding to the length of the base of the pack), 30 cm and 35 cm right to 40 cm. The two more modest sizes are omni-appropriate in regular circumstances! Keys, phone, wallet, additional pair of shoes… no problem. I’ve seen the 35cm rendition utilized instead of a briefcase. I’ve seen the 40cm variant utilized as a carry-on bag! (LV make a lightweight suitcase that is comparable in appearance – yet I wouldn’t propose it for day by day use.)
The NEVERFULL pack is a sack style sack that truly satisfies its name! It comes in three standard sizes, PM, MM and GM (little, medium and huge… the “G” most likely represents immense!) In its littlest appearance the Neverfull is an exceptionally utilitarian bag. Because it’s more extensive at the top than it is at the base, and it’s shaped narrowly it is not difficult to get things all through the pack. (Proviso – this sack doesn’t hurdle up – so on the off chance that you live in a zone where pick-taking is wild – you might need to mull over this.) A full-sized Neverfull can serve as an attaché, a sea shore pack and unquestionably as a portable suitcase (Also appropriate in the event that you have a little youngster and travel with the typical combination of diapers, bottles, chewy-toys, snacks… etc.)
I don’t prefer to talk in careful numbers – so suppose it’s quite a-ton LESS than your new Tudor Black Bay and, in case you’re gloating to your companions about your new Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Skyfall you may have to supersize your gift! Remember, the Speedy and Neverfull are simply beginning points. So, go to your closest Louis Vuitton and clarify your situation. Tell the business partner the amount you will spend to haul your rolls out of the fire! Keep that individual’s card; this won’t be the last time you need their help!
… then stand by until the following portion of this column!
