    Assuming the buckle is the correct size for the strap? Not much besides not wearing it. If it's a leather strap, it will eventually weaken and break at the stress points, which happens sooner or later depending on the weather, how much you sweat, how often you take your watch off/put it on, and how tight you wear it. Some watch aficionados do like dress shoe fiends and rotate out their leather-strapped watches every day or two to let the straps dry out and breathe. If it's becoming a serious issue then wear a bracelet watch instead.

    The only other thing I can think of is maybe you're talking about the wear to the bottom (skin) side of the strap from being repeatedly bent backwards for the tongue of a conventional buckle. In which case, I'd suggest replacing the buckle with a deployant clasp. I've dealt with RHD deployants and can vouch for the quality and service.

    I am In need of a solid navy suit which I will be ordering next week and I am having a difficult time picking out a thread count. All of the fabrics are either super 110,120, and 130 with very small price difference from the 110 to the 130. I will be wearing the suit somewhat often and I am concerned about the longevity and durability of the suit. What would you suggest and why? Thanks!!

    Well.


    Seriously, I like snug but not tight around the seat, and a fairly straight leg. I hate the look of the skintight ones that seem to be hip right now, and baggy ones look awful.

    Do the dimensions of your shirt shoulders (seam to seam) usually equal the dimensions of the shoulders of suit jackets that fit you well? Or do you find that your well-fitting jackets have shoulders a little smaller or a little larger than your shirts?

    Suit/jacket's shoulder-to-shoulder measurement is usually bigger.

    Lower super numbers are generally said to be more durable than higher ones, so if durability is a concern go for the 110 (or lower). I believe SF generally prefers a good quality 80 to a fancy-schmancy 150 any day.

    in your opinion...


    Im looking at a brown dress shoe.

    What is the difference between an mahogany brown and just like a Dark oak brown besides the obvious.


    Are there any colors that one will look better with than the other????Seasons etc.

    Thanks
