It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

yay more dumb mike larry suit questions:

1. i have 16.5" biceps. i realize this is a little bigger than your average skinny guy, but i'm certainly no popeye either. i just received my BB fitzgerald suit in the mail (42s) and the suit fits pretty well, but it's a little tight in the upper arm area. it fits slim when my arms are down, but if i bend my arms/flex, the sleeve tightens around the upper arm. it's not so bad that i look like i'm going to explode out of the jacket, but i can feel it.
am i just out of luck here? i tried the madison and my arms fit more comfortably, but the rest of the suit was too boxy. i'm assuming sizing up to a 43 would only affect the size of the shoulder/chest and have no effect on the sleeve size.

2. the suit jacket fits very snugly, to the point that it restricts movement to a moderate degree and isn't a breeze to put on. from what i've read, this is how things should be, especially if you want a fitted, slim look. it just occurred to me though that i wouldnt even be able to wear something like a light sweater or cardigan under the jacket. is this how a suit should be fitted? should i have left at least a little bit of room or should i be leaving the light sweaters to be worn under casual sports jackets and not a suit?

3. where should the top button be on the jacket? mine is about 3 inches above my belly button. is this where it should be?

Sounds like the suit is too tight on you
Lose some weight, fatty

You can let out some fabric in the jacket torso and sleeves
Ask the tailor
It will cost you though

Have you tried on a 43s in fitz?

I have wide feet and I hate that a lot of shoe makers only do D(M) sized width or the retailers only carry the D(M) sizes. I usually have to jump up a whole size to get a fit that's comfortable, especially for stiffer shoes.

Which brands of shoes do you usually buy? All good American and English shoemakers make shoes in a variety of widths. You're right about most stores only carrying D, though.

I don't buy a lot of shoes to begin with but it's hard to get a good sense of how things fit when they don't carry your size w/o a special order. lol.

For 15+ years I was a Rockport guy because they offered wide widths and could be commonly found at Nordstroms.

I only have a couple pairs of dress shoes, a couple pairs of casual oxfords and a couple pairs of sneakers. And with those 6 pairs of shoes I'm at my all-time high in number of shoes at one time lol.

If you ever get the chance to visit an Allen Edmonds store, stop by and try on some shoes. Don't you live in OC? There is one in Costa Mesa.

can we all talk about our wrists? what's on 'em? i've never been a watch fan but i'm starting to do some research into a purchase. i'm one of those people who can't drop the money until i feel like i know everything about the craft/production, so i'm guessing i'll be studying for a few months.

You can see my wrist in the picture I posted above. My watch is a Rolex Air King, which is their smallest men's model. I have small wrists so I think it looks good, but some people prefer much larger watches.

Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean. I wear it everyday, with the exception of when I'm at the gym, when I wear a G-Shock.

Read into movements.

Like a car, I think the most important part of a watch is its movement. Look into quartz, auto & manual movements. Some companies have in-house movements, some use ETA movements.
