No they are sort of medium grey, they just look charcoal in that picture.

 

Have you ever been able to size down from a 46L? I'm also a 44L and recently found a 46L Samuelsohn SC for 40% of retail that fit for length and sleeves. If the shoulders weren't absolutely perfect they were very close. The jacket is being slimmed through the body and I can pick it up in a week. I've been told that Sameulsohn is a good brand when it comes to alterations but I dunno as the guy who told me that was a salesman.

Been a bit too busy to post lately. Here's a fit from yesterday.



 



<br />



 



<br />



 



<br />



 



<br />



Pal Zileri Sartoriale - RLP - Tom Ford - Henry Carter Irish linen - Bulgari - Pal Zileri - C&J



 



Pents are burgundy donegal. The shoes (which I picked up for half price recently at a close-out sale) have an unusual leather finish - C&J refer to it as "Roughout waxed suede". It strongly reminds me of Drizabone raincoat material. Anyway, they look a bit alarming in the above shot so here's a promo shot of the same shoe from the C&J website showing the colour a bit more accurately:



 





 



I matched it with an ancient and worn Rodd & Gunn brown leather belt (not seen).

Cocks: sell the Vulgari-Bulgari and buy something nicer.  But keep everything else - and I like your shoes. Nice jacket too, and I really like your wintry trousters.

Mimo, appreciate the feedback and positive thoughts on my fit. That watch though....it really polarises opinion.

 

FWIW, I think Gerald Genta's BVLGARI-BVLGARI bezel is a truly iconic design from one of the greatest watch designers of the last forty years. The fact that it has appeared on a large number of flashy but horologically inferior watches may indeed tarnish its value in the minds of many; but in and of itself, it is and will always be an aesthetic triumph.

 

The rest of the watch is just as beautifully designed and finished. Bulgari went all-out with the Calibro 303 to create a timepiece which could compete in the Royal Oak/Nautilus "luxury sports" space - at less than half the price. (It's worth noting that both the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak and the Patek Philippe Nautilus were also designed by Genta.) Inside the watch beats the legendery Frederic Piguet 1185 column-wheel chronograph movement, the thinnest of its type ever made. I believe that the overall concept, design and possibly some of the assembly was actually done by the Gerald Genta/Daniel Roth manufacture on behalf of Bulgari. This is not some sloppy jewellery-brand timepiece with mashed-up design cues hiding a crappy Soprod movement; it's a genuine Swiss thoroughbred.

 

 

You think this ^ is vulgar? Hey, you're welcome to your opinion. I have several other watches. This one gets more wrist time than most of them.

I can't decide whether I think this worked. Seems like too many right angles. I originally thought to wear a solid grey wool tie, but it was too close in color to the pants. I also considered switching the colors of the tie and square, but a brown tie seemed too matchy. Suggestions appreciated.

Excellent looks today people!

 

Sorry about the image quality, was in a hurry this morning.

IMHO it does look very vulgar, and even before seeing mimo's post I thought it kinda ruined your otherwise great outfit.

 

Don't get me wrong though, I'm the first one who likes breaking the rules, so if you like it you should totally use it. I'm just telling you that probably 90% of the people out there will think it's tacky, so that you can take it in account when assigning your wrist time.

Either navy or burgundy tie and this is good! Maybe you can taper the trousers' waist a little bit, it seems to me a tad larger than your body waist.

Thanks for the thumbs & comments on last photo.

New Kamakura-shirt today. The Tokyo-Slim fits like a bespoke shirt smile.gif

Ah well...you can't win 'em all I guess.

 

I do feel though, that certain designs acquire a kind of vulgarity-by-association which is not necessarily intrinsic to their appearance. I knew when I bought this watch that it would offend many because of its bezel. OTOH there are certain limited-edition Royal Oak Offshores which simply scream poor taste, and yet people are selling their grandmothers into slavery in order to move up the waiting list for them.

 

OK, that's enough vulgar watches. How about a nice hat instead?

Oh, you're preaching to the choir, I hate how most RO look, and I really don't get the hype for them. With that price tag, I'd buy many other watches over them. Still better than Hublot, thought.

 

Nice hat!
