    I never went to the Borelli store in Manhattan, maybe I should, but I also was very impressed with the knowledge and service of the Borelli store in my city. Good and honese salesman are so hard to find and worth their weight in gold, there should be some sort of industry award for these outstanding people.

    I also received great advice recently at my city’s Ermenegildo Zegna and Dior Homme.

    Love your blog, keep it up.

    >I never break this fashion rule?
    I NEVER wear a watch

    ? I never heard that rule before! As long as the watch is appropriate it shouldnt be a problem to wear one?! I think a watch and a wedding ring are the only jewellery a man should wear!

    It’s “I NEVER wear a watch and ALWAYS wear formal shoes with a tuxedo.”

    He’s wearing a watch in the photograph.

    The posts are always interesting, Sartorialist.

    (I don’t wear a watch.)

    I think he just means you shouldn’t wear a watch when wearing a tuxedo.

    I take a look at your blog every day, quite inspiring. Especially the photographs are sometimes awesome.

    You don’t wear a watch with a Tuxedo because the night ends on its own accord.

    A watch suggests you have something to keep track off, once you are in the Tux the night is simply to be enjoyed – at whatever pace that you are enjoying it. When the evening ends the evening ends, even if that is well after the first lights of rosy fingered dawn

    The Borelli look involves pants . . . “a little shorter than normal.” Not Thom Browne short, I hope. By the way, can anyone explain to me the appeal of Thom Browne’s kookie too short pants?

    How many times have you seen women on the street dressed right from “the runway looks”, never.
    Thom has a certain way of wearing his own clothes but his customers can wear theirs anyway they want. I saw a guy in Thom Browne the other day on the street, he looked really great. At the time I didn’t even notice the pant length so they must have been pretty normal or I would have noticed.

    Most underrated item in menswear?
    A good tailor and an honest salesman.

    I know whether I like my tailor or not; what is a dishonest salesman? Someone who would sell something that isn’t right for you, or doesn’t fit? I guess I have enough style sense to not really need to rely so much on a salesman as others might. Anything else I’m missing about the concept of an “honest salesman”? Thanks!
