Clearly photoshop. It would have said bearded prick otherwise.
I think this is partly due to:
a) The angle
b) Noodles' inability to take a half decent photograph.
Can you take a picture of the tags? Blue label is usually corneliani, though I think this might be slightly older...
This accounts for 95% of the difference. Anyway, it looks great on you suga, wear it in good health!post #13700 of 3739610/17/14 at 2:28pmpost #13701 of 3739610/17/14 at 4:11pmQuote:Originally Posted by Coxsackie
Noodles, don't replace that watch with another TAG Heuer. Too much of the purchase price goes towards their gigantic advertising budget, which is finely honed to draw in aspirational guys in their late 20s/early 30s who are making their first significant watch investment. They have cheap ébauche movements inside, the styling is fashion-driven and dates quickly, and really the only thing good about TAGs is their bracelets.
The brand is improving now, with a lot of money being thrown at innovative (but ultimately pointless) new complications like belt drives and magnetically-regulated balance assemblies. But none of this whizzbangery will ever find its way into the regular TAG Heuer lines, and for equivalent money there are dozens of better choices.
Since you spend most of your time in suits, I would think about a nice dress watch, or at least, tilting the stylistic balance more towards dress than sports. If chronographs are your thing, there are plenty of elegant chronos out there.
- I agree with @Coxsackie's caution about not replacing the TAG Heuer with another, if you do decide to get a new watch.
- I've worn TAG and/or TAG Heuer watches for three decades now. From my late 20s and 30s as my work horse casual/smart casual watch. And, then from my 40s onwards as my beat up watch for use during outdoor manual work or adventurous pursuits.
- But here's were I differ with Coxsackie. While the brand may arguably be improving its aesthetic looks nowadays, I've noticed the mechanical reliability of the movements/crowns has declined during my three decades of regular use. From very reliable in my younger years to very unreliable over the past decade.
- For example, during the past three decades I've owned four TAG Heuer watches. The first two ran reliably over many years/decades, including during my military service. While the later two required major repairs within the first 12 months of purchase. On a positive note, the repairs were covered by the manufacturer's warranty.
- Today, I have a small collection of Omega Seamaster watches (both current and vintage models) as my main stay smart casual/dress watches.
- Tip: If you're on a tight budget now as a married man, then I highly recommend that you consider "vintage watches"--what ever brand that you fancy. In particular, watches from the 50-60s decades seem to fit in well with the today's modern dress aesthetic and SF classic menswear too. Just my 2 cents worth.

Been away so late on these points:
If you want to start odd jacket/trousers pairing, I feel like if you just stick to blue and brown jackets, then white, khaki/tabacco, mid-light gray, and maybe blue/washed black jeans for trousers, you have some pretty easy matches too. White/cream trousers go with pretty much everything, and if you go with brown/blue jackets I feel like the colors I've listed basically work however you match them unless you don't wear trousers as jackets or something.Quote:Originally Posted by mrjester
I was thinking of going through Luxire to try to get all my options. Unfortunately no blends, really.
Here's a SuitSupply jacket I photoshopped. I'd add a hiden placket with horn buttons and not snap. Buttons for all four pockets (showing, not hidden). Brown thick linen. No zipped-away hoodie. Still zip closure behind buttons for the main closure when it gets cold.
PS, I suck at PS.
What do you call those kinds of pockets in tailoring? I was thinking of getting a casual jacket made like that in tweed at one point.
For watches, I'm a die hard seiko fan. They are great imo.post #13705 of 3739610/17/14 at 4:56pm
That jacket is definitely far better on @sugarbutch and anyone who thinks it's just the angle and/or the photography really doesn't know what they are looking at... the suit fits SB better in fundamental ways (shoulders, chest) and flatters his body shape far more, whereas for @The Noodles it only accentuated the worst - he could see and feel this and he wasn't wrong. This has been a good deal for both.post #13706 of 3739610/17/14 at 5:04pmpost #13707 of 3739610/17/14 at 5:05pmQuote:Originally Posted by FlyingMonkey

Yeah I mean I am not experienced enough to say but to my eyes it looks way better on sugarbutch. It's not bad on noodles but I'm surprised how many people insist on him keeping it.
Sorry RTC but I think there's nothing wrong with noodles just owning 80% navy and blue suits. He clearly looks best in those. =Ppost #13709 of 3739610/17/14 at 5:22pmQuote:Originally Posted by FlyingMonkey

The jacket definitely looks better on Sugarbutch than on Noodles. Better is the keyword here. Same can be said of the Formosa on Murl. Doesn't mean Noodles should sell the Formosa too, just means the problem is definitely Noodles...
That Polo is probably one of the better RTW fits Noodles will get unless he goes BnTailorpost #13710 of 3739610/17/14 at 5:23pm
