So you're saying you aren't athletic? Then it might work for you.

People tell you not to do this because you will not be able to adequately tell the suitmaker what you want. After experience with a few different suits, you will get to know your own tastes, which will ultimately result in a MTM suit more to your liking.

 

That said, you should still end up with a suit that fits you well, which is important. Since you don't fit in OTR, this is probably your best option.

Very different watches. Might want to figure out what kind of watch you want first, then start narrowing down. Don't boil the ocean

I think I want a watch similar to the Longines one. The other two with metal straps wouldn't look good in the office.

Your question would be better posed as a thread all its own, and preferably to someplace like watchuseek.com or timezone.com, not as part of the Ask a Question thread here on SF.

It's actually a fairly complicated question, made all the more so by the fact that you don't appear to have even narrowed it down to a single type (sport or dress) of watch.

But fwiw, I'd pick the first watch listed, the Longines Conquest. It's a handsome, classic style watch, which would work well with a suit and tie. However, I wouldn't pay anywhere near 760 pounds for it.

Does the actual product label say Italian wool? Online, I looked at the description and it only mentions Italian linen and nothing about wool.

Dear all,

 

I live in New York for the last six months and I need to renew a pair of lace-up black shoes to go along with my suit. In France I'm used to buy Loding, Finsbury or Emling, three amazing brands that are amazing alternative to english brands and much cheaper ($200/$300)

 

As these brand are located only in Europe, I wonder what alternatives are available for black derbys (we call them richelieu even if we're wrong). My reference model would be the C&J Weymouth but at $700 I can't really afford them.

 

My price range would be between $200 and $300 maximum. I'll already check Johnston&Murphy (as they leather and finitions appeared to be correct but I'll wait to see them before judging), but I will be open to other brands.

 

Would anybody have a idea?

 

Thank you in advance.

 

S.

 

 

PS: I discarded Cole&Haan and many other cheap shoes. I'm looking more for the small business that knows what are shoes for men.

After doing some research my search for a good suit has only gotten harder. I'm looking to get a solid navy suit, as it is a staple.

I'm a fan of the fashion suits, thin fit, narrow lapel... However, now that I am more informed, I'm having a tough time finding the right suit.

I started with a Jam/Sharp Boss, and now, well, that is out of the question. Next was a Benjamin from eHaberdasher then a Jort from Suitsupply, but the styles weren't quite right.

My budget can handle up to a $1000 suit, and the only store nearby is MW (so no help there). This is going to have to be purchased online, and tailored at either MW or a local tailor I don't entirely trust.

At this point, I just need some direction, where can I find a well made suit (preferably full canvas) that is still the fashion look without overpaying for the name?

Looking for some dress shirts that have a collar that stands up nicely and is prominent. My price point is $200 or lower. I hear Thomas Pink collars fit the bill nicely, but they are overpriced IMO.

Have you looked into BB Fitzgerald?
