Should I wear a pocket watch?

This question comes from Tim McDonald from North Dakota: Should I wear a pocket watch?

In order to understand the fashion statements that a pocket watch can make, one must understand the origins. Back in the day, pocket watches were a statement of wealth and class. They were very accurate time-keepers and were great for any occupation that required accurate time-keeping and scheduling: think of guys on wall-street in the early 1900s.

Nowadays, you don’t see many touting a pocket watch, but when you do, it does draw attention and makes a fashion statment like no other. It is usually preferable to wear a pocket watch when you are also wearing a vest. SuitUpp.com displayed a great Sean John 3-piece suit that is perfect for the pocket watch. 

It is usually customery to wear the pocket watch on the left as most people are right handed. Make sure that the pants that you wear this watch with are not too tight so that you can access the watch with a simple yank and without having to pull. Silver and Gold are the best fit for this type of a watch but nickel can also work.

Should I button up My Suit?

This week’s question comes from Kim Stevens from LA who asked us whether her husband should button up her suit all the way…

This is a great question and, frankly, we’ve been asked this many times before. Fortunately, the answer is not so difficult. In general, if you leave your suit unbuttoned it portrays a more relaxed and somewhat less formal look while buttoning up your suit all the way presents a more conservative and serious look. To see an example of how an unbuttoned suit can look a little less formal, check out the Sean John 2-piece suit of the week at SuitUpp.com.

If you are to leave your suit buttoned up, you generally want to leave the bottom-most button unbuttoned. This is a convention that has somehow developed in the professional world and while there could be many explanations for it, “everyone else does it” seems to be the common one to go by…

Hope this helps,

Can I cuff my Jeans?

John Reid from North Carolina recently bought one of our Tallia Blazers. This blazer happens to look amazing with Jeans and so the question that arose for him was if it would make sense to cuff his Jeans while wearing this blazer (since his jeans were a bit too long).

John, the answer is, yes, you can do it. While most people don’t cuff their jeans, some do. It all depends on the look that you are trying to achieve. As long as you feel confident with the look and feel of the clothes, it is absolutely ok. Especially with the Tallia Blazer, we’re sure that you’ll be more than fine.

There are a few words of caution though. Don’t overdo the cuffing. If the jeans are really too long, then simple get them hemmed. Alternatively, you could try cuffing them in the reverse direction (i.e. towards the inside).
