If you have a burning question about the next fanny pack or Noah rugby shirt, drop us an email with the subject line “Ask Chris” at strategist@nymag.com.

What are your thoughts on watches? Now that I graduated from college and I’m moving to the city, I’d like to purchase one that I can wear anywhere from work to out at night. Rolexes are a little pricey me for right now, and I hate smartwatches, so looking to find something tasteful and high-quality that won’t totally break the bank.
