What I am wearing today (20 July 2014)

Today I am wearing a black/gray woolen hound’s-tooth single breasted full-canvas hand-made 100% silk lined suit with a ticket pocket, a micro-tattersall  check cotton shirt with contrast collar and cuff, a light gray silk tie with large pink checks, a pink-check linen pocket square, and a pair of black plain-toe oxford shoes.

If you notice carefully, you will find that today I am wearing four patterns: The suit is hound’s-tooth, the shirt is tattersall, the tie is another check, and finally the pocket square which is also a micro check. Wearing four patterns is a difficult undertaking and are often discouraged by the “experts”. You be the judge of today’s combination and don’t forget to leave a comment.

Another new feature is the jacket’s sleeve which has been attached in such a way so that a hump is created at the junction. This technique is known as “con rollino” shoulder.

What I am wearing today (17 July 2014)

 

Today is Thursday and keeping with tradition I am wearing a woolen Sports Jacket/Trousers combination. The sports jacket I am wearing today is self designed and is intended for travelling—it’s what I call a travel jacket. The jacket is full canvas and handmade (including hand sewn button holes). The buttons are corozo. I have paired the jacket with a pair of Jodhpur trousers. This is my first Jodhpurs and I am very impressed with it—it’s very comfortable and for travelling this will be ideal. I have already commissioned another two Jodhpur Trousers with a slightly different design. As you know, Jodhpurs are designed for riding and because it has lot of room just below the waist, it should also be comfortable when having to sit in cramped aircraft seats. Today I am also wearing a pair of brown Chukka Boots which also have a equestrian origin.  Other accouterments include a blue/white cotton check shirt with barrel cuff, a blue/yellow horizontal striped silk knit tie, and a yellow silk pocket square with blue border.
