What I am wearing today (2 August 2012)

Today again is a Thursday and like other Thursday’s today I am wearing a blazer/trousers combination. The hunter green blazer is single-button, peaked lapel and with metal buttons. The trousers are brown and the shirt is also brown/white Bengal Stripe. The shirt has barrel cuff. The shoes are brown monk-straps. I am wearing a maroon silk tie with woven white paisley patterns. I am also wearing a maroon silk pocket square.

Though I normally do not wear lapel pins, as an exception I am wearing one today to celebrate the Olympic spirit. This pin is from the Atlanta Olympic of 1996. I visited Atlanta just before the Olympic and this was a souvenir.

Today’s watch is a 1965 vintage Tissot Visodate Seastar Seven manual winding with a golden bazel.

  1. love the combination … just curious … why is it called the – White Bengal Stripe ? and as usual great watch .. best regards

    1. An Internet search reveals that Bengal Stripes originated in India. I think we can safely assume that it originated in Bengal (which was a part of India). As you are aware, Bengal was famous for its cotton including the Muslin fabric. Thanks for your comment.
