What I am wearing today (14 June 2012)

Today is Thursday, the day before the weekends start here and I am already in a holiday mood. My today’s attire is a  classic combination consisting of a 3-button, notch-lapel navy blazer; a light blue tabbed-collar shirt with french cuffs; gray flannel trousers; a blue/violet/yellow-orange striped tie; a violet pocket square; and a pair of brown loafers.

Today’s I am wearing a very beautiful 1960-70 vintage gold plated Favre Leuba Geneve “Twin Power,” date, manual winding watch in a brown leather strap.The watch is with its original dial, bezel, and crystal. You may notice that the crystal is lightly chipped around the “3” mark of the dial. I decided not to change the original crystal.

What I am wearing today (11 June 2012)

Today I am wearing a glen plaid, 2-button, notch-lapel suit; a pink shirt with french cuffs; a tartan tie in red/green/blue/pink; a Macclesfield printed silk pocket square; a pair of light brown derby shoes; and a 1960 vintage gold plated Favre Leuba, Duomatic, day, date watch in a brown leather strap.

Today is the first time I am wearing this grey glen plaid suit with brown shoes. It doesn’t look that bad, does it? I rather like the look. Normally I would have advised wearing black shoes with this suit. But now I am not so sure. Brown shoes look equally good and from now on I would use both brown and black shoes with this suit. I think the color of the shirt is also important. A white shirt with this suit would probably look better with black shoes.

Today I decided to dress casual in a trousers/blazer combination. Therefore, today I am wearing a 2-button, notch-lapel blazer with patch pockets; a pink and white striped shirt with barrel cuff; a dark pink silk knit tie with small white polka dots; a lighter pink pocket square; a pair of dark brown monk-strap shoes; and finally a 1960 vintage Favre Leuba Sea Chief, manual winding watch in a brown leather strap. The watch has original dial and body. It has only been serviced.
