I'd say you missed my point entirely, and managed to confirm it at the same time.My point was: You consider "poorly dressed" to be Walmart or Sears attire. I consider "poorly dressed" to be the opposite of whatever you think simple shirts and boring shoes are. But I'm glad you got some positive reinforcement on wearing the RLBL suit. You have my sincere wish for good fortune with it.
It isn't about the designer or the make, it's about wearing well-fitting, well-made clothing and wearing them properly. Maybe you just dress badly the rest of the time, and people at the important business event were pleasantly surprised that you showed up properly attired. Your description of the shirt you were wearing as "simple" and the shoes as "boring" leads me to suspect this might be the case.
Of those watches, I would be most likely to wear the Seiko chronograph. Ordinarily I prefer a mechanical movement over quartz for a chronograph, but that's outside your budget. The Seiko is a good size -- not too large at 40 mm -- and is sporty yet refined. He'll be able to wear it with anything from jeans to a suit. He will like whatever you pick out for him.
I picked up exactly what you're looking for at Target for like $30, but if J Crew quality is too shitty for you, you probably won't like that. In the most recent edition of Esquire's Big Black Book, there's a page of unstructured lightweight sportcoats that would be more to your tastes.
What we have here is a lack of communication. The OP wants Scott Disdick; SF is trying to give him Cary Grant. OP, your instincts are terrible. You need to lurk more, a lot more. Stop thinking of classic menswear as boring. It got to be classic for a reason. If you're concerned that following SF advice will make your fellow students will judge you harshly, remember that they are the worst-dressed people you will ever be around for the rest of your life. By choosing what...
No way I could limit this to a top three: 1. Finished hand-wound (not auto) mechanical movement. 2. Precious metal case instead of steel. Display back optional. 3. Leather or croc strap instead of metal bracelet. Can have a deployant clasp or traditional buckle. 4. Rectangle, square, tank, tonneau or cushion shape is perferable to round. 5. Roman numeral or baton markers are preferable to numerals. 6. White or silver dial is preferable to black or other dark color. 7. If...
Every time I think the forum has become too cruel to noobs with stoopid questions, something like this shows up to make me think the forum isn't quite cruel enough.
I not only expect compliments, but I think people should stand and applaud when I enter a room.
I agree with what's above; it could be magnetized, and regardless, if you got water inside the case, you need to get it serviced ASAP. Running very fast is also a symptom of something gunking up the hairspring. Any competent watchmaker will be able to diagnose the problem and give you a very hefty estimate for what it will cost to fix it.
I'm in South Texas, which alternates between Saharan desert/Cambodian rainforest climate, depending on which way the wind is blowing. I recommend linen and cotton in light colors, staying out of the sun, and changing clothes often. I have made it through the past three summers without wearing shorts in public at all. If you're going to wear OTR chinos, shirts, etc., beware of stain-resistant or wrinkle-free treatments. Those seem to wear a lot warmer than regular cloth. I...
