What I am wearing today (12 May 2014)

Today I am wearing a blue notch-lapel (actually fish-mouth lapel) 2-button suit with a ticket pocket, a blue/white check Winchester (white collar and French cuffs) shirt, a dark orange silk tie, a pink linen pocket square, a pair of dark brown cap-toed oxford shoes, and a vintage cushion-shaped Dunhill automatic stainless steel watch with split seconds.

  1. Where is the best place in Dhaka to buy high quality suiting fabric? I am after some midnight blue cashmere or mohair wool blend but I’m worried that a lot of the fabrics in the tailors are not what they appear to be… Any ideas? As the king you must know!!! Thanks

    1. Thanks for your comment. Finding good fabric in Dhaka is a challenge as most of what you find in the local market are mostly Chinese or Indian products. You are not likely to find Cashmere or Mohair in the local market.

      We have a selection of some fine wool fabric for suits but they are not Cashmere or Mohair. Following are some of the fabric from our current stock.
