I hardly spend any time in the living room, either. I think that's probably common when you live alone.


Maybe some day... After an exhausting day at Fashion Square, I usually have a cup of coffee at Starbucks.


I found myself there once, so it's not likely to happen again, but Scottsdale is doable. So is Tucson.
Well...this is a family-friendly forum. And it's often easy to like someone from a distance but once you start living with them...everything changes.

The only exhausting day at Fashion Square is the workout I get from pulling out my wallet. I'm actually not a bigger shopper, I don't care to buy new clothes all that much. I don't think I've actually bought ANYTHING at Fashion Square this year so far; good for my pocketbook.

I like gold a lot and I wear a gold chain. I think that if you're happy with it you can pull it off, who gives a crap what other people say? Sometimes I get a hard time from people and other times I get compliments.. but hey I like it so why would I stop wearing it?

I wouldn't however wear a gold chain, watch and gold bracelet, I think that's pushing it a little too much.
I should've clarified that I meant a gold chain bracelet; not a chain necklace. And unfortunately, SpeedyAZ doesn't have a gold Rolex. For my dad's 70th birthday, my siblings and I all chipped in and bought him a brand new, gold Day-Date which has gotten me on a "gold kick". Chipping in on that watch only ran me about $6K...I don't think I could spend $28K on a watch for myself unless I get a SERIOUS raise or bonus at work

Maybe a pre-owned one though...sometime.

Opinions?
If a man wants to avoid looking like a pimp, he wears no more than three pieces of jewelry. These three may be the following:

1) Wedding band.
2) Tasteful wristwatch.
3) Class ring (But after a couple of years? C'mon.)
4) Tasteful religious symbol on chain, preferably no larger than one square inch in area.

Beyond that, yeah, you might as well be wearing a leisure suit.

Yes. I think it looks good.

Not as many as Mr T. tho.

So a tasteful wristwatch and a chain is acceptable, that's all I care to know.

And hey...I actually have my father's leisure suit from the mid 70's. It was in the bottom of a trunk that I dug out many years ago, I actually even wore it to work one day last year. Everyone got a good chuckle out of it.

Let me clarify. Chain around your neck. Around your wrist smacks of Miami Vice.

I agree. The class ring is dorky both HS and Uni. I don't like religious jewelry either.

Diamonds for men? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bracelets on a guy do nothing for me, personally but a gold chain, not too thick and showy, as you said, sure does trip my trigger.
