Yeah way too short. The new minute hand on these watches I like a lot. Hour hand could have been better. A huge improvement for the second hand would be to put the lume tip closer to the end like on the 6309's. Why Seiko went away from that is beyond me.

It doesn’t bother me. Slightly longer hands would look better, buts it not a deal breaker.

That's not an improvement over the OEM hands.

Barf. Buy watches you actually like and skip this nonsense.

I bought a suit from Bergdorf Goodman over ten years ago. The salesman was wearing a suit with skinny pants that were too short, and he wasn't wearing socks. Turns out he was way ahead of his time. I prefer more conventionally-cut suits. To each his own, I guess.

I get that the “slim fit” suit is intended to highlight a fit physique, but when I see guys wearing one I can’t help but think “didn’t they have that in your size?”

Same here. I don’t dress up often, but when I do i prefer to look proper and not fit some latest fashion trend.

I'll be happy when that trend ends - I'm embarrassed for guys wearing suits that don't fit.

It's already over. The real taste makers are now wearing too wide lapels and Italian style drape suits. They have been for a while.
