What I am wearing today (25 September 2013)

Today I am wearing a charcoal gray 2-button, notch-lapel (actually fish-mouth lapel) linen suit, a white cotton shirt with cocktail cuffs, a gray/red floral print silk tie, a white linen pocket square, a pair of black suede double monk-strap shoes, and I am not wearing a watch today.

The buttons of the jacket are made of handmade unpolished buffalo horn. I think the buttons add the right texture to the linen suit. The matt finish of the double-monk suede shoes complements the linen suit. I was tempted to wear a silk knit tie with this outfit. The fact that I don’t have a suitable silk knit for this outfit prevented me from my temptation.  A compromise was the floral print tie. I also tried to wear a striped (white and blue) linen shirt but the white shirt appeared more appropriate due to the contrast it creates with the charcoal suit.
