You got me there, I'd prefer a blue SC over a blazer if we are picking nits on nomenclature.
It sounds like the jeweler is afraid, and rightly so, that in order to remove the scratches he'd have to take off a lot of material or leave an uneven surface - better to have a scratch. I would just keep it clean, polish occasionally and live with the scratches.
I'd stick to using non abrasive cleaning methods (ie mild soapy water) and a polishing cloth and let any scratches lie. Maybe if it was a plain dress watch (and I don't consider an Oyster to be one) with a simple case I could see trying to maintain a mirror surface at the expense of wear.
More than anything, it just doesn't flatter you - you are a thin guy, go for a slim fitting blazer. Personally I'd skip the brass buttons too.
Wow, the retail price makes no sense to me - $600 for the jacket and $260 for pants? They look fine but it would have to be much closer to $400 for both pieces IMO to make it any kind of value. At almost $900 you have a lot of other options.
I have 3 pairs of horse-bits which I wear regularly, they get compliments and are comfortable. I find it hard to believe they are handmade though? They crank a lot of these out every year...

I got my first premium shirt recently (Truzzi) and I can see from how it is made why it costs more than an average shirt like something from Theory or the online MTMs. I get what PT is saying too, wouldn't want to have to pull the Rolls up to more...

Ditto, I appreciate you taking the time to explain even though you are mostly correct in that I don't understand
