What I am wearing today (1 December 2013)

Today  I am wearing a mixed wool dark blue notch-lapel (fish mouth) 2-button suit with a ticket pocket, a dark blue cotton/silk blend shirt with French cuffs, a blue and yellow silk tie, a yellow pocket square with light blue borders, and a pair of dark brown cap-toed oxford shoes.

Normally, I don’t show the shirt’s fitting, which is off course, a very important consideration. The following two photographs show the shirt’s fitting.

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.

What I am wearing today (19 March 2012)

Today my ensemble is anchored with a light blue wool/silk blend, 2-button, suit. The jacket’s lapel is what is called a “fish-mouth,” a variation of the notch lapel.  I have chosen to wear a white/blue Bengal stripe shirt and a patterned tie in red/blue/yellow colors. Today’s pocket square is yellow.

Today I am wearing light brown oxford brogues, as shown below:
