It has been said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. No, I don’t know who said it, and I’m not sure I completely agree, but I am sure of one thing: a man of style and substance is well advised to avoid imitations.
By this, I’m not talking about products that draw their inspiration from time tested standards, I’m talking about those products that pretend to be something that they clearly are not.
Wearing a genuine Seiko vs a fake Rolex? No question, the fake broadcasts you as a person desperate for style without substance. The result is that both are lost.
