Looks like a normal cuff.
Second picture makes me think they're a bit short.

I like your shoes.

Really? because that what I feel when sitting down. Standing up the length feels between half and no break. But I feel like it's a bit short when it goes beyond ankle when sitting down. The tailor said it's fine.

Thanks, they're from an emerging shoemaker in Singapore called Atelier Llyr.

Might check him out, thanks as well.
Ummmm...thanks BUT no thanks! lol

Depends on the stitch it. The ladies at my local stitch it are pros, and have done some crazy alterations for me just perfectly.

I had to strongly insist on maintaining the rakish sleeve pitch on a southwick SC that needed shorter cuffs, but apart from that no troubles!

Cuff looks good. Reality is not all of us like our pants the same. I hem on the shorter side myself, but in reality it's all a preference and there is no right answer. Wear them as you like.

Hello gents,

 

long time thread reader here. I'm aware that many posters here work in finance and was wondering if I could trouble someone for some advice. I'll be going to university next year and have offers from UFT Rotman Commerce, Schulich for the IBBA program, Western Ivey HBA with Engineering double major, and Waterloo Management Engineering. I'm still ambivalent about future careers but would love to hear opinions of the above programs and careers normally associated with each school.

If you want to get set on investment banking/ management consulting, go with Ivey HBA. Great networks and probably the best careers centre in Canada.

If you are not sure what you will do, but you lean towards finance, go to program with lots of mathematics, physics, you know, STEM kind of stuff. But serious stuff... The best finance people and best management consultants I know first studied engineering (mechanics, electronics...), then went to finance, MBA etc later...

One thing, I didn't go to school in Canada, so this might be wrong here...

I'm a recent Rotman grad. They all have their pros and cons, it really depends on where your strengths and desires lie. I would suggest first making up your mind on engineering vs commerce. This will allow you to compare apples to apples, as comparing UW Management Engineering with UofT Rotman Commerce is meaningless. I will say that Rotman lacks on the alumni side and Ivey is stellar for that. I would rank Ivey #1, Rotman #2, Schulich #3 for commerce, from your options (not in a position to comment on UW Engineering).

Having said that, at the end of the day, as cliche as it is, it is what you make of it, they're all good choices. You just have to figure out which is the best choice for you personally, and no one can decide that but you. Also consider lifestyle differences (Toronto vs. London vs North York vs Waterloo), tuition costs, living costs, alumni network, long term career/life plans/aspirations, etc etc.

PM me if you'd like more details.

Do you think I'd be at odds with an Ivey and Engineering double degree but the absence of a MBA?

Management consulting does peak my interest; however, I've heard it takes years to build a reputation in the trade, as you're consulting others with many years on you.

Ultimately I see myself going into business. I only applied to engineering out of the recommendation of many finance guys who suggested engineering would offer a pragmatic skill set needed in the industry.

From what I've personally seen, people that have an engineering undergrad went on to work in an engineering related field after graduation, went back for an MBA after a few years, and only then went into finance/investment banking/management consulting. If that doesn't sound appealing and aren't enthusiastic about engineering, then I'd suggest not choosing UW. This isn't to say that it's the only way and you can't skip the engineering work.

If you want to go into "business" after graduation, Ivey/Rotman/Schulich will offer better opportunities. I would say this applies even more so for summer internships.

As I mentioned, I didn't acquire my education in Canada, so I cannot speak about particular programs. Serious engineering requires serious and well understood mathematical apparatus (although now days I hear many schools push more for a "skill" based programs). This teaches you to think straight like nothing else, teaches you not to be content with bullshit answers, and  this is what businesses are looking for (of course, you need to find time for hanging out with friends, drinking, chasing women, reading good books, traveling etc, which will give you all the "soft skills", hehe).

 

In my opinion, MBA is pointless until you've spent some time working in your field and figured out that you a) want to move to more managerial role or into business consulting and b) you are realistic about being capable for such a career.

This. Well said!

Thank you gentlemen for the breadth of advice and insight. I have serious thinking to do
