What I am wearing today (26 April 2012)

Today I am wearing a natural tan colored linen, 3-button, notch-lapel, patch-pocket single-breasted suit; a handloomed cotton check shirt with french-cuffs, a silk knit tie in blue and red horizontal stripes, a Macclesfield printed silk pocket square, a pair of mustard colored suede monks, a mustard colored belt with a golden buckle, and a 1980’s golden Rado Diastar automatic watch.

 

What I am wearing today (25 April 2012)

Today I am wearing a striped light gray, 2-button, notch lapel, linen/cotton blended suit; a black/white gingham handloomed cotton shirt with barrel cuff; silk knit ties; a Burberry check pocket square, and a pair of very dark brown (almost black) suede chukka boots.

I am very excited about the shirt I am wearing. This is my first shirt made from handloomed cotton. It’s extremely comfortable. It’s soft and supple and this tailored shirt fits the body like a glove. It’s so light that I don’t feel like I am wearing a shirt! I have been so impressed with this shirt that I have already ordered a dozen similar shirts. More on handloomed cotton shirts when I receive them.

Today’s watch is a 1960 vintage West End Watch Company, Sower, Prima with day and date. The dial is adorned with 10 jewels. The watch has a similar look to a Rolex Oyster Perpetual.

A 2-button, notch-lapel, sharkskin suit; a white french-cuff and tabbed collar shirt; a white/ash patterned tie worn with a four-in-hand knot; a white linen pocket square; and a pair of plain black cap-toed oxford shoes constitute my ensemble today. As you can see in the photo below, I am wearing a black belt with a silver-colored buckle today. I am sure you will agree that any golden accessories would look very odd with this ensemble.

Today’s watch is a rare and vintage 1957 Longines, manual winding, and stainless steel casing with a black leather strap.


What I am wearing today (18 April 2012)

Today I am wearing a glen plaid (aka Glenurquhart check) double-breasted, six-buttons, suit; a very light pink shirt with tabbed collar and french-cuffs; a striped necktie in light blue/light pink/ shocking pink colored stripes; and a pink pocket square; a pair of fancy oxford shoes with side laces. Today’s watch is an Omega Constellation Chronometer Automatic.

What I am wearing today (17 April 2012)

Today I am attired in a blue, 2-buttons, peak-lapel suit; a peach/pink and white striped, french-cuff shirt; a blue/pink patterned necktie, a peach/white pocket square; a 60’s vintage West End, Sowar, Prima, 21 Jewels, Automatic stainless steel military watch with a stainless steel bracelet; and a pair of plain black cap-toed oxford shoes. Though my preferred shoe color for a blue/navy suit is brown; to break the monotony, I made an exception and chose black shoes today.

What I am wearing today (16 April 2012)

Today’s suit fabric has brown chalk-stripes over a kind of dark blue/bluish black background. The suit is three buttons, notch-lapel, and unlike most of my suits, has no back vents. My preference is two back vents. I would say this suit is also a tad lengthy–in my opinion two inch shorter would have been ideal. I paired the suit with a graph-check shirt with french-cuffs. Today I chose to wear a patterned silk necktie in yellow/brown shade to complement the brown colors in both the shirt and pocket square. The pocket square has two colors; navy and brown.

The shoes I am wearing today are brown cap-toed oxfords. Today’s I am wearing a 1960 vintage 17 jewels  Tressa, manual winding,  stainless steel watch. By the way, I am also wearing a brown belt today.
