Fit check please, I am new to the style thing and have started building a wardrobe and I understand that fit is king but im a short guy sadly. Anyways I just bought my first 2 shirts from j crew one is slim S and other XS
Perhaps a couple of straps and a tool to swap them with. This depends on the watches he has, obviously.
Don't watches need special straps? One of hi watches is broken as he has spent several months trying to source a link for the strap as you can supposedly only use links from (Cartier? maybe) and they cost a fortune and he can't find any.
Depends - most watches that use leather / croc straps can be swapped out easily with a strap changing tool for another strap of the same size (lug width). Watches that use metal bracelets will require dedicated links for resizing, but even most of those can have the metal bracelet substituted for a strap with the use of a simple tool. Quality generic croc straps can be had for $120-$150, and of course, can and do cost a lot more if you buy dedicated replacement straps from the manufacturer.
Consider also a nice watch storage box or a subscription to a watch magazine (Watch Time is pretty good) as alternate gift suggestions.
Also - try asking for suggestions on the watch appreciation thread here: http://www.styleforum.net/t/36253/the-watch-appreciation-thread
Lots of dedicated watch nuts in residence and ready to help.
Possible, possibly not. The trick is to spot quality -- to be able to say "this is good" or "this is bad," whether it's from Bean or Brunello.
Anyway, regarding the green cords, I wore a green surcingle with a yellow BB OCBD (kind of a peachy shade), and it looked pretty good. I wouldn't wear a yellow shirt with a tan jacket, though, but I hate tan jackets with GTH trousers. Camel hair with subdued shades is great, but I associate that kind of look (bright trousers, tan jacket) with the dudes who get photographed hanging out with Fred Castleberry.
