    Big Watch Compatible Shirts?

    It is now long sleeve weather up here in Minnesota. Does anyone know a decently made, decently priced dress shirt with cuffs that fit comfortably over big Doxa watches.

    I find it very annoying when my watch doesn't fit right under the shirt cuff. Even my vintage Sub 300T doesn't fit most shirts when it is on the chunky rubber strap.

    Try shirts with french cuffs and cufflinks

    I wear Brook Brothers which are always overcut and fit everything up to and including an EcoZilla.

    When it's long sleeve weather here in Germany I switch over to my 600T or my 300 (no T) which have flat cases. They are very convinient to wear. I don't like big and heavy watches under a shirt/jacket cuff.

    Brooks Brothers or Charles Tyrwhitt (from UK) are my choices. I need to dress in a suit and tie everyday and these tend to work great. Try a french cuff for some added room. Charles Tyrwhitt shirts are great and pretty reasonable. You can find some great coupons online and they will ship anywhere.

    Sorry, I cannot help with the shirts, I'm mostly casual (jeans & T shirt type whenever feasible). Long sleeves I usually roll up (like to keep my watch visible ) and jackets tend to be military types (no troubles with jacket sleeves).

    I love my B.B. shirts, only one word of caution...

    By far my favorite shirt is the all-cotton, non-iron oxford, but they don't stand up to the DOXA bezel. It wears away at the layers on the inside of the cuff; I've since made 3 of these into short-sleeve models. This necessitated the purchase of a Doxa "dress" watch for use with these shirts.

    None of my "finer" weave shirts have done this - Brooks Brothers or otherwise.
