What I am wearing today (24 December 2014)

Today I am wearing a 3-piece small hound’s-tooth check suit. The jacket is a 2-button notch-lapel and has a ticket pocket. The waistcoat is five button with two lower pockets. With the suit I am wearing  a blue/white striped linen shirt with French cuffs, a blue/white windowpane silk tie, a Macclesfield printed silk pocket square, and a pair of black cap-toed oxford shoes. With the three-piece I am also wearing a West End “Queen Anne” pocket square in a double-Albert silver chain.

Have you noticed the suit buttons? These are laser engraved horn buttons.

After I had finished selecting today’s ensemble I realized that all the items, i.e., suit, shirt, tie, and pocket square are patterns. This is probably one of the most difficult undertaking in men’s ensemble—matching four patterns. Many people would deride such an attempt. But sometimes mixing three or more patterns could be fun. What do you think? Do you think today’s ensemble seems incongruous?
