So what do you recomend for maintainance - cream or wax polish?

Well this is the watch I wear: http://www.watchbuys.com/Master/NI-023.htm I think it looks reasoanbly dressy. I am 6'0 185 - and I dont think it looks too big. I actually think that these days 40mm is average theese days.

You don't know how long it's been (if ever) since someone did a good polish job on the shoes. I would feel dumb if I got a nasty spot right on the upper of a brand new shoe because I failed to polish it. I also try to waterproof the sole under the arch somewhat with polish or heel/edge dressing, to avoid...

I was also shopping for a new watch recently. I understand what you are saying about compromise. I found the PPs to be a bit small for my taste - since Iv'e gotten used to wearing a 40mm watch. I am probably leaning towards a JLC at the moment. If you dont mind my asking what sort of discount did you get? I hear 20% is about standard. Is that true?
I had some time to kill in NYC last Friday - so I decided to go to T&A and ended up wandering up to the C&J store. Decided to buy my first pair of C&Js. I would have bought the handgrades - but I just couldn't take the last - it was just "too much" chissel for me. Ended up buying a pair of Westfields in a 9.5EUK (I wear a 10DUS). Asked the manager about recomended wax / polish and she recomended Kiwi Wax Polish (I don't live in NYC - so I dont have immediate access...
Is the cashmere you use 2-ply or greater?

Shirt looks good to me. I used to wear undershirts - now I wouldn't dream of it. Unless you are a heavy perspirer - why would you want to replace the feeling of high thread count cotton next to your skin with that of an undershirt? Also - shirts will last longer if worn without an undershirt - the rubbing of the two layers will wear out your shirt.
