    In my experience, they fit similarly enough that you should get the same size Ludlow as Thompson. Some people say they fit just the same, but I seem to hear more people say that the Thompson is just a touch roomier. I've tried on plenty of Thompsons, but not enough Ludlows to give you a more detailed answer than that. Also, be aware that different materials of the same cut will fit differently, so don't try on a fully lined tweed Ludlow and expect a half lined seersucker Thompson to fit the same. You might not need to size up or down, but it will drape differently. I'm sure you knew all that, but I don't want to assume.

    Out of curiosity, do most of you guys limit yourselves to the cost of the jacket when it comes to tailoring costs or for inexpensive things do you sometimes spend a little more than what you paid for the jacket?

    I don't think about it that way. The relative cost of the piece to tailoring doesn't matter, just the total cost of piece + tailoring when compared to the alternative(s).

    If I buy a thrift store jacket I really like that almost but not quite fits and spend twice the price of the jacket to get the fit just right, more often than not I'm happier than if I'd spent the same total price to by a brand new jacket that fits okay OTR.

    The best way is to create a budget for an item that includes tailoring. So if you have $300 for a jacket, then you have several options. If you are lucky, then all the jackets you want, won't need tailoring (not going to happen). I think though, even if I got a $20 jacket second hand, I wouldn't spend $280 tailoring it.

    is it good/bad/doesnt matter if i keep the timer on an automatic chronograph watch running non stop? it just really annoys me having the seconds hand staying flat at the 12 o clock position

    thoughts on wearing regular brown leather (belt/watch strap) with walnut strands?

    It could cause unnecessary wear to the chronograph function since it is running all the time. May need serviced sooner. As for the belt/shoes, I do this with my Daltons.
