I see your point, but watches have evolved since the 60's - by that I mean they're all big. A new DateJust (certainly a dressy watch) is 39mm today whereas its 1960's iteration was 36mm. The Omega DeVille has grown even more. Fifty years ago it may have looked out of place to wear a 40mm Submariner with a suit but today I wouldn't think twice (and wear the Planet Ocean often). And where do we draw the line? The GMT Master isn't technically a diving watch and is the same...
I think that is ridiculous. A Submariner looks great under a suit or tuxedo. So does my Omega Planet Ocean 42mm.
How the hell do you tie a tie like that? It's one skill that no matter how many Youtube videos I watch I cannot master.
Very minimal wrinkling. A quick Iron and they look like they're fresh from the cleaners. After a day of wear it still looks good (I have the blue one on now). After being stuck in the BB Non-Iron phase for a while I've finally branched out and have been wearing a lot of Ledbury shirts recently and they're the same way. I put my shirts in the dryer for about 10 minutes on low heat to get out "hard wrinkles," let them hang dry and iron once dry.On another note: I wonder how...
I just had an idea for the Classic Menswear & Streetwear forums, and I'm going to sound like a dick for suggesting it. But it seems like good threads get lost or pushed to page 2 and beyond due to the flood of new posters asking the same repetitive questions: "what suit can I get for $200?" "what do I wear to an interview?" "is brooks brothers the best suit in the world?". Is there a way to quarantine posters who have less than 100 posts (or 30) to a separate forum to ask...
I just got my first OCBD in from Kamakura and I couldn't be happier - the light blue is exactly what I was looking for. I can't think of a better spent $80. I have a terrible pear-shaped body and went with the Tokyo Classic fit. The fit is about the same as a Gitman Vintage - I got a 16.5/33 and wear a large in Gitman Vintage (there's a very helpful size guide on the site for those who are scratching their heads at the 4 different fits). This shirt is just incredible. The...

Divert some of your shoe budget to new carpet.
I'm about 180 miles from the nearest store in Dallas. It might be worth it to make a weekend trip for a ~$600 Polo suit. After double checking their stock, of course.
Like what? Alls I want is a basic blue label navy suit for as cheap as possible. What's the deal with the 15% "kicker"? Is this in-store only? I didn't get a postcard this year.
