A simple query... [29 Jun 2005|10:24am]
Can anyone think of a tasteful way to wear a pocket watch with a two piece suit? I have one suit with a watch pocket in the trousers, but sadly this luxury is rare indeed.

Granted, I almost always wear a waistcoat or a vest, but a few of those don't have any pockets (a devastating modern trend, I'm afraid) and I simply can't bring myself to wear a wrist-watch, for both aesthetic and practical purposes (I hate wearing things on my wrists! Ugh!).

I've seen some folks keeping pocket watches in their handkerchief pockets and notching the chain to their lapels, but this sacrifices both handkerchiefs AND boutonnieres, which I do not think is an even trade at all!

I've also considered purchasing one of those leather cases that attach to the belt that you can keep a watch in, but that might borderline a bit too much with the Redneck Aesthetic that is so rampant in my Native Carolina.
