Thanks.

Anybody please?

I have a wrist size of 6.5 in. What is the largest watch I could/should wear? would 44mm case diameter be too much?

It's really not a matter of case diameter, but rather the overall profile of the watch. Some watches with a 44mm case do not appear to be that big and vise versa, also you have to take into account the thicknes and width of the band, case thickness, etc.

If you have to second guess wether it's too big or not, chances are it is.

That being said, try it on and see if you like the way it looks, if so then get it.

Thanks - but I've never been to fussed about closed laces vs open (I think in USA they say blucher and balmorals - btw how do you pronounce blucher?)

I find open laced much more comfortable due to a high arches and I often think closed lacing shoes look too dainty.

Anyway - most people won't know the difference and my chances of bumping into some borderline aspergers obsessive who frequents SF are slim. Plus they look better than any RMs.

Ok my leather wallets have been destroying my formal work pants... Now that will be great for my denim but bad news for my pants as I want them to look elegant not rugged. Anyone can recommend any soft leather wallets that don't destroy the back pocket of my pants? Thanks!

I am poor and I am after my first suit for a job interview. I came across this suit and it looks decent for the price. Should I get? http://www.asos.com/Asos-Tailoring/A...rt=-1&clr=Grey

You can get a Ralph Lauren suit at a department store for that much, and I guarantee the quality will be much better.

Has any one every heard of the brand "Boat House Row?" I came across a Boat House Row sports coat the other day.

If I want to install a zip fly into a left internal pocket of a suit jacket, will it not ruin the jacket fit?

Have never done this, but I think it'll be okay unless the suit is very fitted. Best to ask your tailor.

Never heard of it, sorry.

Why would you want to do that?

Something looks cheesy about it. Look for a nice suit on ebay that is in perfect condition then have it tailored. It'll end up costing less and be a lot nicer. I've picked up *mint* Kilgour suits off ebay for $70 before, a couple of alterations under $50 and I have an amazing suit for a ridiculous cost...

I think you could pull it off with a heavy tweed or similar country suit. Of course, you might risk looking like a total lunatic or a wandering extra from a turn-of-the-century British period drama. You might pull it off better with jeans and some rustic-inspired sweater and/or herringbone overcoat.

I would get rid of anything you don't have to carry and start using either a money clip or one of those leather card holders that is pretty flat. Unless you find the lump-on-the-ass with white fabric edges to be flattering. Where I am from, I wouldn't put my wallet in my back pocket anyways... nothing says pick my pocket like a wallet sitting on a butt-shelf beyond the wearer's gaze...
