The Thousand-Dollar Pair of Jeans• A grand is probably a little (or, okay, a lot) more than you’re used to paying for denim. But you’re also probably not used to customizing your jeans by choosing the fit, the wash, the metal of the hardware, and the precise size and exact placement of any sanding, staining, or distressing. Not much in this world is absolutely perfect, but your 3x1 jeans will be just that. For the same level of craftsmanship that goes into a custom suit, it’s an extraordinary investment.—JIM MOORE3x1 made-to-measure jeans, up to $1,800 at 3x1, 15 Mercer St., SoHo, N.Y.C.THE $1,ØØØ GUIDE TO 2Ø17Even in uncertain times, there’s still fun to be had, clothes to be bought, money to be…maybe not blown, but spent less than responsibly.

No joke: They sell this Junghans watch at MoMA. Its design harks back to Bauhaus-era modernism, and inside it’s got the Swiss-made guts of a contemporary masterwork. If you prefer variety, that same $1K will buy you a full watch arsenal: an everyday warhorse from Timex, a go-go gadget (with a sunny yellow strap) from Apple, and a dressy stainless-steel timepiece from Bulova. Armed with all three, you’ll be set…

run this town >your $1,000 new york weekend

Friday Night• Arrive at JFK and skip the line for extortionate taxis. Instead, ride the subway ($7.75) to 42nd Street, where you’ll check into Yotel (1; $258 for two nights), a futuristic budget hotel with a robot for a bellhop. Now it’s dinnertime: Uber downtown for a wood-fired pie from Pasquale Jones and learn to pair white wine (from France!) with your pizza ($100). Then hit the beer-and-shot doubleheader at Botanica Bar ($6), where people you’d actually like sober go to get wild, and Milano’s ($7), one of the few old bars in N.Y.C. that haven’t become a tourist trap (because it’s so narrow it can only fit, like, four of them). Finish with Sand Tigers at Tropical 128 (2; $24), a campy club that feels like a degenerate Rainforest…
