It's not the primary function of either site.

My wrist is extremely small and no straps are fitting. Measures 6" around. I am using a cheap timex weekender. Can anyone recommend a place that sells straps that will fit a small wrist? My friend showed me one european site that sells short straps but I emailed them and even their straps won't fit a 6" wrist. Just looking for a nice brown leather strap.

Not really. That boot/short combo looks terrible. Those boots are not short-compatible. Try a suede chukka of some sort or stick to more successful short/shoe combos like clean white sneakers, boat shoes/mocs, loafers, etc.

Trying to find a black blazer that I can wear dressed up and down, for nights out on the town in warmer weather (Los Angeles). Does this number from Shipley & Halmos look like it will fit the bill:
Shipley Halmos Black Blazer, R1.1.1.||B2||T0JKX0lEPTRmNjc4MmQ3YTU1YTAzMTcwNGY2Y2UwZmI2Nzg2ZDA1MTMyNmRjYmU1YjEyfHxTRUxMRVJfTkFNRT10aGVuZXdiZWF0fHxPUklHSU5BTF9FQkFZX1FVQUxJVFlfU0NPUkU9NHx8Q1JFQVRJT05fREFURT0zLzMvMTMgMjoxNCBBTQ==

It's lined, so I'm not sure if there's too much structure?

Check out timezone.com's sales corner. There are a few watch strap sellers there. They should be able to source a short strap for you. I have a 6.25" wrist and can pull off a regular length strap on the last hole. I also have a strap punch in case I need it tighter.

They may say different here in SW&D, but a black sport coat is pretty formal. Personally I would go with a dark blue instead.

It's less about being lined and more about the shoulders and overall shape. And the fact that it's black.

But most of all it's about how it fits. This thread is awseome for the very topic you're pondering....

Puretime (mid tier)
TC straps (higher end)
Also search the B&S here and theres a guy who makes straps made to order, so you could easily get your perfect sized strap, nice leathers too.

Who sells some basic white canvas sneakers with closed lacing like these? Checked out converse, spring courts, common projects but found none (all of them are open lacing). Also, do people make white canvas in America anymore?

Sperry, Keds, Vans. Not sure about made in America.

 

P.S. the term you're looking for is CVO.

Awesome. Thanks.

Can anyone suggest a good 'gym bag'. However i'd like something with good compartments. 

 

Spending more money on clothing means i'd rather not stuff my clothes into the same bag as my gym gear (which is washed after each use btw).

 

Though carrying two bags, or a hanger etc is not as convenient. So I am thinking of something which has compartments of some form.

 

Keep the gym gear in one side, possibly zipped?, while your denim, chinos, shirts etc can be neatly folder and placed into the other side etc.

 

Suggestions for a suitcase are not needed. smile.gif

Q (s): I've just started a new management position in retail where we wear the same thing as the sales associates, but I need to buy new clothes all together because mine are over sized, dingy, and torn up from working. Our attire is a navy-colored shirt (i'm leaning towards polo's), khaki bottoms, and slip resistant shoes. To appear more put together, I want to spend time on my work clothes this purchase. Polo's I can find anywhere, not worried about that. What I'm wanting to know though is the cut and color of pants I should look into. I'm apple shaped so I tend to go with straight-leg pants in a standard cut, as relaxed seems too big, and "vintage" is too narrow for my body shape. The color is where I'm really stuck. I'm looking at shoes online, and I've found some decent black work shoes (Skecher Rocklands), but I'm unsure of what color pant to pair with that. I keep thinking a cream color, but I'm unsure about that. I'm pale skinned too if that helps.

Are black shoes mandated? If not, wear brown. If you want to look more put together, Sketchers won't help. Look for a rubber soled leather shoe that can be polished, something like a plain-toed derby would work. For pants, try and buy the slimmest you are comfortable in. Most people think the larger sizes will hide their size. They are wrong. You could try Dockers Alpha which are slimmer but not skinny. Maybe try JCrew as well. Also - get them hemmed so they don't stack up on your shoe.

These are your Rocklands... Can't recommend not getting them more, they're hideous.
