    I'm looking for a suit with a similar fit and finish to an Isaia Base "S". I'm 28, 6' 160lbs, pretty wiry, if that helps at all. Any recommendations?

    I prefer 9 for a tighter fit (at least it gives me an illusion that the crease will be "healed" better)

    Can you wear a navy trench over a navy suit? I love the look of a navy trench, but I also wear navy suits once in a while.

    What are your thoughts on pairing a linen blazer with cotton pants? Both are slim fit. The blazer is off-white and the pants are medium gray. Is it a faux pas to pair different materials?

    Thanks!

    It'll look fine in my opinion.

    So you got the watch without the strap from somewhere else? I've been to a store about more than a month ago, and all of their watches are sold with strap. In fact, the strap is what causes the price differences.

    Also, I highly doubt that you can find separate strap somewhere else.

    I have the watch with what is now a very worn-out strap, if you doubt that they do separate straps i guess i'll have to either find a replica ones that could use my original metal strap or custom order a leather one from somewhere....
