Today I am wearing a 3-button, notch-lapel, maroon pinstripe over dark blue suit with a white shirt with french-cuffs. a red/maroon silk tie with paisley patterns, and a white linen pocket square. A pair of maroon/brown brogue oxford shoes complements my attire.
Today’s watch is a very rare 1962 vintage cushion shaped Camy Geneva Deluxe manual winding watch in a brown leather strap.
Today I am wearing a 2-button, fishtail lapel, blue suit; a blue/white striped shirt with french-cuffs, a silk tie with thick black and green stripes separated by a thin yellow stripe; a patterned pocket square in blue/red/yellow; a pair of cap-toed oxford shoes; and a vintage Omax manual winding scratch proof date watch.
Today I am wearing a peaked lapel, single-breasted, 2-button, suit with red pinstripe over a blue background; a red/white micro-check shirt with french-cuffs; a maroon tie with printed small black squares; a red pocket square; a pair of reddish brown double-monk shoes; and a Poljot, manual winding, alarm wristwatch.
Forgot to mention, today’s shirt is also hand-loom cotton. It seems that I am getting addicted to this fabric.
Today I am wearing a white linen suit with black pinstripes. This is two button version with a fish-tail notch lapel. Recently I have been wearing this suit more frequently than is usual. I also love today’s shirt which is a hand loom cotton shirt in micro stripes. I am finding hand loom cottons to be particularly suitable for hot and humid weathers. You must try them to appreciate these shirts. A chose to wear a black, gray, and purple striped silk tie and a silk pocket square in black and red.
Today’s ensemble is a good example of matching various patterns. You must have noticed that everything that I am wearing today contain patterns. The suit is a stripe, the shirt is a check, the tie is again a stripe, the pocket square is a pattern is red and black. The trick in matching stripes, checks and other patterns is scale. Vary the scales so that they do not clash. Judge for yourself how effectively I have been able to mix the patterns today.
Today I am wearing a 1980 vintage Tissot Automatic with a black leather strap. I seem to have damaged the watch’s dial. I discovered this when taking a photograph of the watch today. I have been wearing this watch for the last two days.
Remember I told you that I ordered some hand-loom made cotton shirts? I got the shirts today from my tailor. Below are the photographs. Believe me, they are extremely comfortable to wear in hot and humid weather.
