Rahul Khanna: Of having a watch collection and wearing flared jeans
I’m fascinated by watches and have a growing collection, which isn’t doing great for my finances. What are some of the collectable but reasonably-priced watches I can pick up?

I’d say go local and vintage. Some Indian watchmakers have made some very cool timepieces over the decades and they’re far more budget-friendly than the big name international brands. Look online or, once it’s safe, scour the antique shops at a place like Chor Bazaar for unique pieces. When you find ones you love, you could even replace any worn-out straps with new, woven canvas ones to make them more contemporary. (If you really want to go full-throttle in the vintage direction, how about a sundial strapped to your wrist? I bet you’re not going to run into anyone else wearing one!)
No flair for flare
What’s the best way to pull off a pair of flared jeans? Or, is it too passé?

Have a special someone do it for you ;-)
