 100-plus posts in this thread during a Noodles picnic attack . .. hmmm  I'm guessing that means you stepped away from your computer for about 2 hours.  Sound about right?
 Noodles, the problem is that you paired a patterned suit with a patterned shirt and a patterned tie and there was likewise no coherency  between the colors for the same (burgundy tie on brown stripe shirt with navy suit).  There are some on this forum that can navigate three patterns successfully, but none of them are named Noodles or NS1.  The safe route is for you to always wear a solid shirt with a patterned suit and then do whatever you want with your tie.  Wear your...
 I've been wearing the same Tag Link diving watch for the past 12 years and looking for a change of pace.  I'm in a suit 2-3 days a week and typically odd jacket, trousers and no tie the remaining days.  I'm thinking I need something a little dressier, but is still versatile enough to wear on the weekends.  I'm looking to keep this under $1,000.  As I've been lurking in the watch threads, I've been drawn to the Stowa Marine on a leather strap.  I've also liked a few...

I've recently come to the same realization after one of my early shirts shrunk to the point the yoke and sleeves are almost too small, while another oxford fabric shirt has had virtually no shrinkage.  I decided I needed to find a middle road that would account for shrinkage but still look good enough if a particular fabric had little to no shrinkage.  With this in mind, I added 0.25" back in my sleeve length and may add 0.25" into my back waist.  Pretty sure I will not...
 No, dark red is a different color.  Oftentimes when a specific color sells out, it never gets replaced.
 
I really like that color, PP.  I've got the burgundy pin dot and it has too much black in the color for my tastes.
 I think Noodles thought we were in the trust tree.  Are we not in the trust tree . . in the nest?
