I think that this question (like many "Which wristwatch should I buy?" questions) is potentially overly broad for inclusion in this "Quick Questions" thread, and would benefit from instead being posted as a thread of its very own. Or - better still - from being posted over at Timezone.com or WatchuSeek.com, which specialize in matters horological, as SF does not.

Don't base your watch selection on watch strap. Most of the time they can be swapped out.

Yeah, but silver with a black face looks great with a black strap, and will come with one more often than not. Seems he likes that style, so why not buy one with the right color band already there? It's not like the watch world lacks for variety.

Speaking of bands though, I just picked this up on ebay. I'm thinking blue leather, anyone else have an interesting idea? It'll be part of a larger collection that already has the conservative covered, so I can play around a little with this one.

It depends on the construction of the shoe. It's not as simple as there being a precise measurement at which it's universally agreed the width moves up one notch. Sorry.

BTW, there's no need to provide the width to the thousandth of an inch. Your foot's width changes by far more than that all the time. There comes a point where additional significant digits become largely pointless. Like reporting that tomorrow's daytime high downtown is expected to be 54.183 deg. F. (plus or minus 3 degrees).

Thanks for the input...I'll probably be looking for C then because worse comes to worse I can fit an insert in there....I measured this in the evening at a store with a clerk since at that time of day my feet would be fully swelled up or whatever...was right on the cusp of a narrow and regular...she said it was really hard to tell which...but if she had to say, she'd go with narrow...

 

And I won't lie, the second half of your post brought a big smile to my face...partially because I know I've been told by many people I meet that I provide way too much detail for simple things (as I'm doing right now) and partially because the way you said it just was well-humoured... laugh.gif

Whats the consensus on the colour of these EG Chelseas?

How versatile are these going to be? Could they be worn with a suit?

post #19731 of 28243

Would have to depend on how you rock it in my opinion...personally for me...I wouldn't have the confidence that I would be able to pull this off when everyone around me has solid black balmorals on (and by confidence I mean I would be thinking "I hope people around me at this formal occassion aren't thinking I'm pulling a faux pas...if you had the confidence you wouldn't be thinking like this in the occasion)...but...if you have a slightly off-black suit and the confidence to go with it...it MIGHT be doable...in my mind.

Well I don't work in an industry where I need to wear black shoes and I only own one pair which I rarely wear.

Might be another option aside from brown.
post #19733 of 28243

Oh I thought you meant could they be worn with a suit to a wedding or really formal occassion...if they're for smart casual businesswear...then no problem in my opinion,

Is this TF tie going to be hard to put on? I am thinking about buying it. Thanks!

It will be easy if you know how to tie a tie, hard if you do not, though it's not really a hard skill to learn.

I'm thinking of ordering a couple of OCBDs from Luxire (custom shirtmaker) and I have a question of proper shirt sleeve length.

 

I've googled quite a bit and found that piece of information but I'm wondering about visible shirt cuff in different situations.

 

Shirt length is a problem for me as I'm quite long and can't seem to get the proper sleeve length from RTW-shirts so I hardly show or show a minimal amount of cuff when using a suit. I know that some amount of shirt cuff should be visible in that situation but does the same apply when you are wearing shirts with a sweater over?

 

I often wear OCBDs and throw a sweater over, so I'm asking if I should show shirt cuff also in that situation?

post #19737 of 28243
I usually do. 1/4" to 1/2" is the usual amount.
post #19738 of 28243

Thanks for the quick reply, aravanel. 

 

I will base my casual shirts from Luxire on a PRL OCBD and in that regard I will take into consideration what other people normally do. (lengthening the shirt sleeves)

LOL! My thoughts exactly but I thought maybe he meant "will this go with anything."

Did anybody ever try these Mr. B's from the step up aldo line and pull them off as bucks (they're not suede)?...Apparently has a leather sole...but since its not suede might be hard to clean? It's on sale so...
