What I am wearing today (6 February 2014)

Today is Thursday and as most Thursday’s today instead of a suit I am wearing a sports jacket/Trousers combination. The jacket is a beige glen-plaid 2-button notch-lapel and the trousers are of beige linen. Today I am wearing a blue linen shirt with French cuffs, a silk knit check tie in Navy blue and orange-red, a Macclisfield printed silk pocket square, a reddish-brown (oxblood?) monk-strap shoes, and a vintage gold-plated Omega Seamaster date watch in a brown leather strap.

Did you notice anything unusual about today’s ensemble? If you did not, I passed.

What I have attempted today is a most difficult undertaking in men’s ensemble—mixing of four (or more) patterns. Today I am wearing six patterns: 1. The suit is a windowpane; 2. The shirt is tattersall; 3. The tie is block check; 4. The pocket square is micro-check; 5. The Shoe is also a check (correspondent shoe); the socks are also a check.

The trick in wearing three or more patterns is in the scale of the patterns.  The patterns must be of different scale.
