What is the difference between a 1 button suit and a 2 button suit. Does it depend on the body type or is one more formal?

post #19712 of 31221

My opinion...the taller you are...the more buttons you can likely pull off...most short guys like myself don't rock 3 buttons very well...2 and 1 for me...1 for me is more casual

Hmmm... the closely fitted pants, the velvet blazer... no, not James Bond. I'd say it's more Maxwell Smart.

Plus, I can recall seeing Agent 86 wear a trench coat. And you could explain your lack of shoes as having something to do with your shoe phone. So definitely more Maxwell Smart, than James Bond.

Mind you, I'm talking about "classic" Maxwell Smart. As played by Don Adams. I know there was a "Get Smart" film, maybe 4 or 5 years ago, which starred someone else as Maxwell Smart. But I'm ignoring him. Same way that the only James Bond I care about was played by Sean Connery, although I know that several other actors have taken a turn since then. For all I know, the latest James Bond may actually dress sort of like Maxwell Smart once did. Heck, he may pal around with a robot named Felix Leiter (nicknamed "Hymie"), who thinks it's okay to sport a diver's watch with a dinner jacket. I really couldn't say; Hollywood is weirder than I can comfortably imagine.

Is a width of 3.346 inches a narrow B or narrow C? Anyone know? The conversion charts online aren't too enough decimal places...my length is 9.5 if that matters. Thanks...hopefully I can get an answer here.

Does John Lobb makes Hermes' shoes?

post #19718 of 31221

First post on SF from long time lurker: Need suggestions or tips for new shoes: I would like some good quality, tan-colored derby brogues. Preferably with a Dainite-sole or equal. Quality is more important than low price, but I would like to keep it under $400-500 (£250-300) if possible. Online shopping.

Hermes bought the John Lobb operation except for the St. James Place. Hermes sells both RTW and bespoke while the St. James Place only sells bespoke.

I need a new watch (black band) and am thinking about these four options for daily/casual wear. What do you think?

Also, although non-traditional, would a velvet bowtie look good with a satin-lapel midnight blue sb notch dinner jacket?


Cheers,

(yes, I've asked this question now three times but so far no takers)

http://www.thecordialchurchman.com/ great service and handmade. I have a black velvet from them as well. Sometimes out of stock of certain materials, just e-mail them and ask.

It depends on the construction of the shoe. It's not as simple as there being a precise measurement at which it's universally agreed the width moves up one notch. Sorry.

BTW, there's no need to provide the width to the thousandth of an inch. Your foot's width changes by far more than that all the time. There comes a point where additional significant digits become largely pointless. Like reporting that tomorrow's daytime high downtown is expected to be 54.183 deg. F. (plus or minus 3 degrees).

I think that this question (like many "Which wristwatch should I buy?" questions) is potentially overly broad for inclusion in this "Quick Questions" thread, and would benefit from instead being posted as a thread of its very own. Or - better still - from being posted over at Timezone.com or WatchuSeek.com, which specialize in matters horological, as SF does not.

Yeah, but silver with a black face looks great with a black strap, and will come with one more often than not. Seems he likes that style, so why not buy one with the right color band already there? It's not like the watch world lacks for variety.

Speaking of bands though, I just picked this up on ebay. I'm thinking blue leather, anyone else have an interesting idea? It'll be part of a larger collection that already has the conservative covered, so I can play around a little with this one.
