Not if you want it to look balanced. Usual distance is 1.25 inches... half inch will look odd. But it's your jacket.

I agree with most of what Chuckie said, but the operative statement is...
which you should not as they are mostly blingy/tacky, uninspired/derivative, or just outright bad. In short, a much more elegant and dare I say "better" watch can be had for the price you'd pay for a Chopard. Perhaps even two!post #24588 of 3107611/18/13 at 3:39amQuote:
The primary reason for the watch would be after work/weekends however I would like it to be versatile enough to wear to work as well.post #24589 of 3107611/18/13 at 3:40ampost #24590 of 3107611/18/13 at 3:52amQuote:
Watches are men's jewelry and a style accessory. Discussing them on SF is just as appropriate as discussing cufflinks or umbrellas. In my humble opinion of course.post #24591 of 3107611/18/13 at 4:33amQuote:SF concerns itself with a fairly wide variety of topics pertaining to men's style, fashion, and accessories. Whereas a wristwatch-specific site focuses narrowly on just wristwatches, often reviewing and critiquing them in far greater depth and from a considerably more detailed perspective than does SF. It's a matter of the generalist vs. the specialist. Both approaches are valid, but they are not necessarily interchangeable.
However, completely ignoring that fact, I would suggest that to whatever extent timepiece discussion may be legitimate on SF (and it admittedly does have its place), a question along the lines of "Which watch should I get?" is probably better posed in a wristwatch-specific thread (perhaps a thread of its own, started by the person asking for advice), than it is being tossed into the "Ask a Question, Get an Answer" thread. The "Ask a Question, Get an Answer" thread is more intended to address "quick questions," and discussions of wristwatch selection often turn out to lead to somewhat protracted discussion.
This is, of course, a context dependent thing, and not an iron rule. If someone posts pictures of two watches, and asks, "Which of these, my two watches, do you think would go better with my navy suit, when I interview for a junior associate's position at Big Law Firm, tomorrow?" I could certainly accept that it's a quick question, and entirely appropriate for inclusion in this thread.post #24592 of 3107611/18/13 at 7:20ampost #24593 of 3107611/18/13 at 7:21ampost #24594 of 3107611/18/13 at 7:53ampost #24595 of 3107611/18/13 at 8:28ampost #24596 of 3107611/18/13 at 8:33ammy tailor keeps giving me grief about bringing in shirts with pleats on the back. she says it is much harder to alter and it increases cost (around $30/shirt).
what is the reason for that? does that make any sense or should i find a new tailor? she comes highly recommended via yelp if that means anything.post #24597 of 3107611/18/13 at 9:21amQuote:Originally Posted by thefastlife

I feel like you've had this answered elsewhere...post #24598 of 3107611/18/13 at 9:35ampost #24599 of 3107611/18/13 at 9:53ampost #24600 of 3107611/18/13 at 10:38amBased on my experience from ordering things from Europe and Japan to be delivered to the States my answer would be "depends." If the item is packaged and labeled in such a way that it is clear to the shipper and customs that the merchandise is new then the answer is "yes, you will be charged;" if, on the other hand, the item is packaged as if it were a gift or simply not new merchandise then the answer would be "no, you will not be charged."
