Probably should have started a new thread... the old replies kinda makes it confusing. Anyway, I think it looks fine, just that your pants look kinda baggy for a "slim" fit.

any pictures?
I had a MTO suit made (not MTM), and after BB altered to fit, I wore it a few times. Then I decided that I'd like the pants slimmed down a bit, so I took it back. I expected to pay something for the alteration, but there was no charge. I have no idea how many times I can go back and have them alter for free, but so far so good. This was at the Riverside Square location in NJ BTW.

I really like the Marine automatic and I think it's like 600 bucks from them which seems like a really good deal but I'm worried about shipping to the U.S. Also, they recommend upgrading the movement for a couple hundred I think. Is this worth it? What are the benefits? Sorry for the newb questions. I was...
My first "real" watch... Stowa Marine Automatic. Stowa's customer service was top notch! I think the Marine Auto makes for a great dress watch. My next purchase most likely will be a Chronograph... perhaps the Archimede Pilot Chrono? I don't think my small wrist can support a watch greater than 42mm. Any recommendations on a Gator/Croc grained leather band?

Quote: Originally Posted by Despos Did you try the suit on at the store when you picked it up? I did, but unfortunately I couldn't directly see the back - only at angles. The BB folks told me it looked perfect... The fit felt better than most suits I owned, so I assumed it was. How do most folks determine if the back of their suits are acceptable? Most of my friends mostly don't even own suits, let alone know what a "good" fit looks like.
