Wearing Panerai to a suit fitting tomorrow?

Hey all - just wanted to get people's collective opinion on this. Last time I had some shirts made, I wore a slim dress watch because that seems like the thing you should do. Well, I found later when I wanted to wear some of my divers (because I don't wear dress watches much), or thicker watches, that they often didn't fit well under the cuffs. Ok, lesson learned.

Well, now I have an appointment to get fitted for a suit and shirt tomorrow, and I'm thinking I should wear the Panerai on a thick strap. That way, pretty much any watch I feel like wearing in the future should fit under the cuff. Heck I'm paying for the suit, the end product may as well be enjoyable, right?

Any thoughts or opinions would be appreciated- thanks!

I'm sure the "proper" thing to do would be only wear dress watches with suits, but that's boring!

I might just wear the 112 on the canvas it's on today (I was considering a slimmer strap) - about as thick and comfortable as can be. Would be pretty cool to be able to easily slide a shirt on over this beast!

French cuffs are a great idea

I also got "convertible cuffs" on one of my previous shirts that has the standard button, but also an extra hole to allow cufflinks as well (so you can do either or) - I thought that was pretty cool!

Anyone remembering that movie...wanna say it was Eddie Murphy in Beverly hills cop...where he tells the under cover cops to tell their tailors to leave a little more room in the side of the jacket to hide their shoulder holsters.

Wearing Panerai....

June 16 2017, 3:03 AM 

I live in Hong Kong, and I always have my shirts made with a larger cuff on the left wrist to accomodate even my largest Watch. Funny story though, the same tailor made my friends Shirts with the same large left cuff, trouble is he wears his watches on his right wrist, it gave me a great laugh!

Step 1 , Wear your Panerai proudly
Step 2 , Get a suit that fits around your timepiece ( not the other way around )
Step 3 , Ask your tailor to measure and cut your watch sleeve 1/2 shorter on your wrist
Step 4 , Then ask him to do a 1/2'' longer circumference on your wrist
Step 5 , Repeat step 1

Suit Fitting

June 21 2017, 2:29 AM 

Hello,

This is right in the middle of my expertise!
I've been a fashion designer for over 25 years & have recently gone back to my love of tailoring "real clothes" for men & women.

This has a very simple solution.
If you wear you Pan often more than a dress watch, wear it to your fitting & ask the left cuff to be tailored to accommodate your watch - easy!
Whether it's a Single or Double French Cuff, 1,2 or 3 button Barrel Cuff it doesn't matter if it's being tailored for you.
Usually the difference in circumference is between 1-1.5" difference between left & right wrists with such a large watch.
The length of the sleeve is another thing to consider - but has more to do with the shirt cuff being 3/8" - 1/2" longer than the jacket sleeves, but these aren't exact RULES, everyone has their own way of wearing their tailored clothing.
Ask to be tailored so it fits into your comfort level, regardless of a SLIM, REGULAR or other fit & also lengths, fabric choices such as Design, Colour, Weight......

The important thing is that you build a rapport with your tailor & trust them.
I've clients from all over (The World), who trust me enough now, to choose their suits & fabrics & just have their suits made & then I organise to send these to them.

Most importantly - enjoy the experience.

BP
