"Cucinelli Cuffs"

I notice in the Brunello Cucinelli seems to display their pants with rather chunky looking cuffs that look hand rolled. Are these indeed hand rolled or can a tailor replicate this look? I've never had much with hand rolled cuffs staying in place all day- is there a technique or trick involved?

Variation on a henley? Fabric could be slub cotton. Reminiscent of Alternative Apparel, although I don't think they're the maker.

You might get better feedback on SW&D?

Is there an entry level dress watch that doesn't look out of place with casual clothing?

1)
Who makes these Brooks Brother's "Peal & Co" suede wingtips with crepe sole: [BELOW, in both Navy & Sand]

2) does the Navy suede one look good with the light colored (crepe) sole? I like navy but don't want it if the sole will stand out too much.

3)
Who makes these: these "Suede Perforated Medallion"

I need a simple looking watch for $400-$500 bucks. Nothing too busy, and I'd like it to look as much like this as possible.

Not really, I do it nearly all the time. Then again my sneakers are without that extremely thick lining

As for cutaway collar, it depends on your facial shape. If you have a long angular face (e.g. lyle lovett), then a cutaway collar is fantastic.
Thanks for your help! Pretty amazing what lowering the gorge by a smidgen does to the look of the jacket; I hadn't even thought about it.

Another question: I had that suit made by a lower-middle MTM tailor in Hong Kong, but wasn't too happy with the result and had to have it altered all around. I'm partly to blame, of course, but things like the sleeves being an inch and a half too long sets the alarm bells ringing a bit.

Should I work with this guy again and try to make those significant stylistic changes, or should I try someone else (probably a bit more upmarket)?

Just sneakers in general. Like maybe some white leather jack purcells. Is it possible for sneakers to "lose their shape"?

What kind of sneakers do you use them on and do you use wooden trees or plastic ones?

Also what's the difference between a sneaker and a trainer???

I want answers dammit!

i was wondering if anyone in here could give me a breakdown of the different levels of suit brands and their prices, couldnt find it on here (if i missed it point me in the right direction please) and i dont want to put my trust in google if im not being clear, an example would be that boss and ted baker would be in the same lower level, but i dont know what SFers think the prices should be, ive only been to holts and harry rosen and they start at 900
