Definitely not Reiss, they don't do long length and the original poster is 6'3".  Don't understand why Reiss want to deliberately not supply any tall people.
Try Charles Tyrwhitt, they simply have Classic and Slim Fit suits so less confusion over the ranges, and they're surprisingly good quality for what looks like just another internet shirt shop.  If you have an outlet nearby (Cheshire Oaks or Bicester) you can get one well within budget.  You should also consider buying a size down in the Classic Fit as that can also result in a decent slim fit.   For Boss you really are paying quite a lot for the name.   Lucan
I picked up a cheap black suit recently (Charles Tyrwhitt, unworn for £50).  I was unsure about it first and would certainly not recommend a black suit before Charcoal and Navy, but I've grown to like it and wouldn't dispense with it just because it's black.   I think it looks particularly effective with pink shirts, and despite a comment above I prefer it with white shirts to blue.
Thanks Dino re the Cartier TF advice, I was just overly worried it wouldn't be good for it.   Video of the JLC Gyrotourbillon here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IQJTGPtYtqA Nice for us mere mortals who'll never get to see one!
Is it possible to manually wind a Cartier Tank Francaise when it is 'dead', or am I ok just putting it on in that state and letting the movement get it going again? Thanks
These aren't exactly the same colour as your shirt, but grey appears to work according to Charles Tyrwhitt.  Also a blue with a small repeating motif.
Not sure any of your three really go, I'd say the middle was the best though.  A solid navy would (always!) be a good choice.  Can't see grey working, black wouldn't be popular on this forum, but would probably work for a more fashionable look.
Have heard of a new watch brand - Du Maurier (named after Daphne).  They only have one man's and one woman's at the moment.  The man's is quite steep for a Quartz movement I guess, but is really pretty: http://www.dumaurierwatches.com/the-collection/maxim-mens-watch.html
What do people think of this, which is reduced to £164 on Amazon.co.uk (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Mens-Watches-ZEPPELIN-Years-7640M-1/dp/B007CZLDZW/ref=sr_1_2?s=watch&ie=UTF8&qid=1358155346&sr=1-2):   Are Zeppelin Watches OK?  Any idea on how the stopwatch would work, as there doesn't seem a pusher for it.  There are two crowns as it is dual-time obviously.   Thanks
Stick with what Oscar Wilde said: "You can never be over-dressed or over-educated".
