post #17327 of 33195

Need to purchase my first real time piece.

 

I am thinking of getting a silver bracelet, which I can always change to leather later.

 

The watch has to be automatic too.

 

I came up with these choices, they are all under my £900 budget.

 

Which one do you prefer? I would be wearing them with a suit and casually.

I am too indecisive, so any help would be greatly appreciated. For an answer that really helps me out, I will send you a random gift in the mail.

The Flagship model braclet is hideous. It also reminds me of a girls watch with shoulder and braclet.
The Sport Hydro reminds me of a Rolex. If you're okay with that, I'd say go for it. If you intend to wear the watch in casual situations it is preferable to the Sport Conquest watch. You'd have less trouble imo wearing the Longines with more formal clothing. Techincally gentlemen have pocket watches but that's another matter.

I got several tips on suits for hot weather but what about casual wear? I live in Florida, so it's a wet heat. I'm bored of chinos/khaki shorts + a t-shirt.

Only with oversized double breasted suits with bright suspenders, ugly plain satin red or yellow ties, and a cigar.

Seriously, I'm not a fan, but I would limit them to suits, but for both work and social occasions.

Hello all,
I am buying a tailored suit, but I don't know the 'worth of cost' differences, if someone could please help with my decision I would appreciate it.

Suit 1 - A 3 piece serge suit which is made of 30% wool, 70% polyester

 

or

 

Suit 2 - A 3 piece VITALE BARBERIS CANONICO 120S, 100% wool, 240g/m, half canvas suit.

 

I would assume suit 2 would look and feel about better but it will be over 4x the price as suit 1. I don't mind spending the money if it is really worth it and I am only wearing it once.
Thank you again for your help.

Think this would look better with a suit:

If I were you, I'd consider getting this watch to wear with a suit, and then buy cheaper watches for casual wear.  You can then maybe have a few cheaper watches which go with different colours and types of casual outfit, and be happy that this watch looks spot on with a suit, and you wouldn't have to wear your 'good' watch on any activities where it might get scratched.

Hi guys, is one of these combinations suitable for a club look or am I missmatching?

I live in Florida, and have no trouble with tropical wool or linen blends. Have at it friend, bask in the wet heat smile.gif

In my experience, a nominal $10 - 15 charge. Not an expensive alteration.

I have this sweater I was wondering what would go with it? I have a pair of dark jeans that go with it. Would Khaki go with this and what type of shirt, beside a white shirt. Thanks.

ABout how much does it cost for a tailor to slim pant from the knee down?

post #17340 of 33195

I'm looking to tailor a cotton khaki sport coat, thing is I'm unsure of having it lined or unlined. I live in Singapore and the weather is rather unforgiving at times so that might suggest leaving it unlined. However, I've also read that having a lining helps with the drape of the jacket. So which would be a better option?

 

Another thing is that I'm looking to purchase a pair of tassel loafers. The likes of Alden, C&J etc. are well out of my range, so what are some viable options? Would brands like Loake or Meermin serve as good beaters?
