    It is obvious that underneath our many differences we share a few common traits, that go beyond our interests in horological matters.

    So much so that I am sure that quite a few would possibly admit possessing more than one item on this list:

    - A middle end watch, Rolex or Omega
    - A German motor
    - A Barbour Commander, or at least another Barbour or Belstaff
    - A fountain pen or at least a high end biro

    Anyone care to add to the list (second hand flip flops and underwear excepted )?
    Had an Omega, sold an Omega. Parents once had a golf (does that even count?) although I now ride a Vespa but have never owned a Belstaff.

    Rolex 3 Omega 4 (an away win for Omega there!)

    VW Golf

    Barbour Sapper

    A couple of what would be considered entry-level fountain pens and Lamy rollerballs, so falling short on this one.


    As has been said - I am not a number.

    Thankfully, I'm not obsessive about jeans or footwear.

    Hold up, including myself that's two Vespa riders - another trend forming?

    Omega - Check
    Barbour and Belstaff - Check
    Mont Blanc Pencil and Pen - Check
    German Auto - Check

    I don't have a beard or a vasectomy, so I do feel a little inadequate...

    Four out four for me too.

    Do we really stand out that much?

    I could always ask my dad to buy it for me. Then I might be able to afford lunch out.

    And what self respecting TZ’er hasn’t got a torch so bright they can illuminate sleeping crows in the tops of a 200ft tree at night !

    Essential to have a tactical torch extra points if it has strobe mode and a compass built in

    On another note I really wish it was 2014

    3 out of 4 or 4 out of 5 if you include the mega lumen torch..

  13. #113

    TZ-UK Uniform

    Omega & Rolex - check.
    Mega Lumen torches - check.
    Montblanc fountain pen - no but Sailors, TWSBIs and Parkers galore.

    I have owned a BMW and a Barbour... Oh god.

    2014 was okay, but rule 3 is "Never go back."

    Times have moved on since 2014. Now think;

    Creed after shave (or should I say Eau de Parfum pour l’homme)

    Tezzler (even if the plastic car seats melt in hot weather)

    Ming(ing) watches

    Strike-out on all 4, but I do have a very bright torch - 'cos I walk the dogs last thing at night.

    List surely needs hilariously-expensive manbags and brand-name shoes in oddly-tiny sizes...

    Or is that just SC?

    Guilty on all counts! SWuggest we could also now add....

    - Super expensive jeans that are like wearing cardboard trousers for the first 3 years and must never be washed
    - Natural woollen Austrian slippers
    - Tiny shoes and huge jackets
    - A motorcycle

    I do own some Omegas and a German car at the moment.

    Never had a Barbour and have hated fountain pens since school.

    Surely a forum toff would be seen carrying a very expensive briefcase, containing his cheese and onion sarnies? A perfect accessory to scream your professed worth when your Barbour covers your ####### (insert expensive watch brand) on your tattooed wrist. ;-)

    Good shout so far on the list.

    Rolex - check
    Omega - check
    Barbour - check
    Belstaff - check
    Motorcycle - check
    BMW (same as above) - check
    Bright Torch - check
    Knife - check
    Expensive pen- check
    Manbag - kind of, Have a Kriega Sling for the motorbike but wouldn't dream of just using it otherwise.
    Brogues- Not a chance
    Wife who's lovely but does things that drive you insane - check

    TZ certainly has a lot to answer for.

  23. #123
    Expensive briefcases, poncey manbags? pfft. I think you’ll find no self respecting tz-uk er would never be seen without their Vintage Norwegian Army Patrol Pack, worn over just the one shoulder naturally.

    That would require the ability to enter and exit one. I'd probably have to roll out of one

    For the true TZ-UK member, this forum uniform would boldly state your impeccable taste. Just add an embroidered TZ-UK logo and you are ready to enjoy the finer things.

    No Barbour or Belstaff and too thick to have a fountain pen

    O/4, own a Jap 2 seater but not a Mazda, only allowed crayon to write with, no inclination to own a Rolex and still got my old lime green waterproof work jackets for when it’s wet and windy out, Scottish summers!
