Well, your watch isn't small.

Do you have any room to move the button on your left cuff?

Hi, I'm on a budget and a 21 year old college student.
What are some stylish but bargain stores like h&m, zara, and express.
Thanks.

Go MTM if you can afford up to $225 per shirt.

can anyone recommend a belt to match allen edmonds black park avenues?

Red:  A fucking black one.  Sheesh.

 

David: Try Streetwear & Denim - we don't do Zara on this side of the forum.

 

Rudals: you have a small shirt size and a large watch.  What's complicated?!  Take the advice: you can move your cuff buttons to make the cuff open wider.  Alternatively, wear a watch with dress shirts that is more in proportion to the rest of you!

 

 

Edit: Rude, I've just taken the time to look up the dimensions of your watch: 43mm wide by 12mm deep.  That's a very big watch.  I take a size 18" collar, and I doubt it would fit easily under my cuffs either.  A 45mm Planet Ocean or Panerai certainly doesn't.  By the look of the watch on your writs, I'd guess you're several sizes smaller, and your cuff will be too.  Get a dress watch, dude!

Mimo.. my shoe laces seem too short.

 

What do I do?

 

:-D

post #22073 of 33197

If you take them out of all of your shoes, and tie them together, you should have a ligature of a length sufficient to hang yourself. :)

post #22074 of 33197

That's rude. All I wanted was advice. But if I was to do so, what color should the home-made noose be?

post #22075 of 33197

It will be whatever colour your laces are.  However, having knots at regular intervals as you inevitably will, makes it entirely unsuitable as a noose.  I'm afraid you will have to manage a more painful and time-consuming asphyxiation that will require some proper effort.

Dr Mimo, holy macaroni and cheese! You're good. It's 42mm. http://www.authenticwatches.com/tag-heuer-link-cjf211a-ba0594.html#.UbDv0OfjdRc

Wow, I never thought of my watch as a big watch. I am an idiot. Yes, I wear 15.5 shirts LOL. Guess I'll fatten up just so I can wear this watch...errrrr...just get a new watch.

post #22077 of 33197

I'll just get longer laces.

That's it's an architect/interior design firm/office isn't particularly relevant. Admittedly, there can be a significant amount of variation in terms of what's recommended for a core wardrobe of 2-3 neckties, but here are a few suggestions:

1. Navy tie. Either solid, or with small white dots. (Stripes, if you dislike solids and dots.)
2. Burgundy tie. Either solid, or with small white dots. (Stripes, if you dislike solids and dots.)
3. Either a small geometric print, in blue, red, dark green, or gold. Or a solid textured tie, in dark silver or light/medium grey.

Again, there can be lots of variation, but the above are some reasonable possibilities.
A solid navy grenadine would be fine, if that's what you like.

 

With further thought from your suggestion, I'm thinking.

 

1. Navy w/ White dots...something like this http://www.landsend.com/pp/mens-silk-churchill-dot-necktie~149004_291.html

2. Burgundy Grenadine 

3. Black silk knit

 

Would these work with a navy and charcoal/gray suit w/ white and blue shirts?

Thanks.

Damn you Mimo- you're always giving the exact same advise I would give, but with cleverly placed swears. 

 

Rudals- burgundy is much easier to pull off.  That ball point pen blue tie will give you problems with a blue pinstripe suit.

1. I'd advise micro dots instead.  I find polka dots a bit garish personally.  Something frivolous about them that's not very "office".

2. Good stuff - versatile and delightful contrast with blue suit/shirt.

3. Drop the black.  It's OK, but sucks the life out of your suit and skin tone.  Swap in a deep green, or a brown or rust if you're braver.
