What I am wearing today (27 May 2012)

Today I am wearing a light tan, 2-button, notch-lapel, linen suit; a hand loom cotton check shirt; a brown silk tie with small flower patterns; a brown and navy printed silk pocket square; a pair of brown double monk strap shoes; and finally, a vintage Sicura Automatic watch.

The glass (crystal) of the watch is damaged. Also damaged are some of the stones in the dial. Trying to find a replacement crystal for the watch. I am not sure about the age of this watch.

 

 

What I am wearing today (24 May 2012)

Today I decided not to wear a suit but to go with a double-breasted, six-button, navy blazer with beige trousers.  I selected a shirt from my recent favorites–hand loom cotton check in red and white and a red silk tie with thin blue stripes. I thought a white linen pocket square would go nicely with this combination (I also thought of using a red pocket square but finally decided in favor of white because three red items would be overdoing it.)
The shoes that I am wearing today are reddish brown double monk straps. Today’s watch is a 1963 vintage Seiko 17 Jewels manual winding version. given that the watch is nearly fifth years old, its condition is superb. Both the body and dial are in the original state.
