What I am wearing today (9 October 2012)

Today I am wearing a blue, 2-button, notch-lapel suit; a blue, pink, and white striped cotton shirt with French cuffs; a peach colored silk tie; a silk pocket square with white dots over peach background;  a pair of light brown brogue oxford shoes; and a vintage manual winding Tressa watch.

 

 

 

 

 

This lapel style is known as “Fish-Mouth”

What I am wearing today (4 October 2012)

Thursday is back and as other Thursdays I am wearing a combination today. The keystone of today’s ensemble is a double-breasted (4X2) cotton sports jacket paired with ecru colored trousers. Today’s shirt is a  white/light gray/light green linen gingham with French cuffs and the colors of the check silk knit tie are maroon, black, and white. Today’s pocket square is a printed silk one with maroon, blue, and gray colors. I thought a pair of brown colored monk shoes would be appropriate for today.

Though the watch is a very simple manual winding vintage Tressa with a large white dial, still for some unknown reasons, I find today’s watch to be aesthetically very pleasing. It may be because of its simplicity.

Today I am wearing a beige, 2-button, peak-lapel suit; a handloom cotton blue/white gingham shirt with French cuffs; a black/green thick stripe silk tie; a macclesfield printed silk pocket square in blue, red, and yellow; a pair of brown brogue derby shoes; and a vintage gold-plated Sandoz, manual winding, date watch with a unique split second in the shape of “S”, which rotates. The watch also has a very beautiful cabochon crown.
