Ferragamos.  I usually don't like pointed shoes, but they seem to fit here.  Get yourself a pair of good chisel toes in the future. Chanel watch.
Yes, and some boots. Thanks.

I personally like the combination in the pics, but as you have probably surmised, I am sort of like Batman to Manton's Superman in the Dark Knight series.
Batman dresses better than Superman.

Thanks, I think so too, Of course, Manton might argue that Superman follows the "rules" of traditional superhero dress, and that wearing black suits in the daytime is simply wrong.

Batman follows the rules: his suits are gray.

Don't ever be looking for a consensus among this bunch, dude.

Yeah, I guess there are the trad. lot and the modern lot, that's what you get the 'style' forum and not the 'suit' forum or 'fashion' forum I guess.

This may the first time I've seen Manton appear too taken aback to express a direct opinion.

What about the watch, would you go for the Chanel or a Rolex Submariner?
Are your going to dive during this evening? Give the Chanel to your girlfriend and wear your PATEK
