This watch looks like it's for an evening event (black tie) and not so much for the office. What are thoughts? 

would be fine for biz cas, though I'd go with the metal band

Fine for business casual, and I second that I would go with the bracelet. You can always buy a strap later and it will be cheaper in the long run.

What's the rationale behind using a bracelet over the leather strap? I find bracelets to be heavier than the straps.

 

While we're in this topic. Is Tissot a good brand for a sub 300 dollar watch? I'm looking for something similar to this style.

Hamiltons are more expensive, but is it worth the extra doe?

For the summer bracelets are more comfortable because they don't stick to you like the leather will. Tissot and Hamilton are both good entry level brands that are part of the Swatch Group. Both use basic Swiss movements. I'm not sure if I would say that Hamilton is better than Tissot though. They are both on par. I have the Tissot watch and it is my go to watch when none of my watches are wound and I just need to pick up a watch to throw on. Not sure why the Hamilton is more expensive than the Tissot in this case.

preference really. I like leather depending on the strap, face and context, but on the whole I'd opt for a metal band on most watches. it's more versatile and less prone to have you looking prematurely dated.

tissot's a modest but respectable brand (movado and hamilton are both respectable as well)--search for a watch thread on MC for more info though.

I'd personally never buy a movado though as it's the watch I see people who know absolutely nothing about watches but wanted a 'nice' watch stroll into macy's and walk out with.

Bands are personal preference entirely. Although some (including myself) will always sport a leather strap over bracelet if I'm wearing anything 'dressy'. I like bracelets or rubber for an 'every day' sort of thing if I'm wearing a diver like a Planet Ocean. At that price point, if you just want a dependable good looking watch, you can obtain a Citizen for around $150-$200 that will look identical to that first watch. The eco drive models are very reliable and for the price they're pretty hard to beat for what all you get.

$1200 gives you a ton of options. If you really like the W+H service boots, I would suggest the overwhemingly popular Carpe S23M. or you could also go with the cheaper Junhashimoto S23 (1st pic), which is based off the Carpe design. If you want ankle boot style shorter shaft, scope out forums and maybe try to find a brown hue Augusta/A1923 (2nd pic).

Those two you posted are horrendous. Get some simple black leather Jack Purcells, that will look 10x better.

This is really, really hard to try and answer as sneakers have an insane amount of options, it's all personal preference. Here's a few black leather suggestions that can all be had in the $100-$250 range if you look around.

Hi
Few weeks ago I found on ebay.com lot of cheap YSL Pour Homme shirts and t-shirts. So they're poor-quality, I guess.
Does anyone know if they're authentic or fake? Most of them comes from the UK. Is it possible that's a different, cheaper line?
Thanks in advance!

Real quick:

 

How many pairs of blue jeans should a man own?

 

I find jeans to be slim in the legs and somewhat lose in the seat. I'm underweight.

Should I buy jeans one size down, like people say, to let the legs "stretch out"?

First question: There is no specific amount of jeans a man "should" own, just buy smart so you don't have some pairs you never use.

Regarding fit, it's usually the other way around for people, so my guess is you've pretty much only tried on carrot-models which taper heavily from top to bottom. Ask a SA for a pair of slim straight or slim slightly tapered jeans the next time you're in a store.

Agree with this, but if the aesthetics appeal to them then more power to them. I'm not sure if there are too many watches that offer the same style as the Movado, i.e., no hour markers except for 12. I'm sure there are some, but I haven't seen too many.

Suggestions? 95% wearing with jeans.

That color is just not that versatile. You don't like the strand in walnut?

No just no to the blue
