What I am wearing today (28 June 2012)

Surprise, surprise! It’s a Thursday again!

Like previous Thursday’s, today I am wearing a blazer/trousers combination. The checkered blazer I am wearing today is 2-button, notch-lapel version; paired with a brown trousers with folded cuffs. The shirt I chose to wear today is a blue with black and white windowpanes. Today’s brown tie has small white woven flowers. The printed pocket square has read, black, and traces of yellow on it. I am wearing a pair of brown double monk strap shoes today.

And finally, today’s watch is a 1960 vintage, gold plated, RADO, Voyager, with day and date.

Like rest of the days this week, today also I am wearing four patterns: 1. Check suit, 2. Windowpane shirt, 3. Patterned tie, and 4. Printed pocket square. Unfortunately, I don’t seem to own a checkered or striped pair of trousers.

 

 

What I am wearing today (27 June 2012)

Today I am wearing a Price of Wales check, 2-button, notch-lapel suit; a blue over white graph-check shirt with tabbed collar and french cuffs; a yellow tie with small gray patterns; a brownish silk tie-dye pocket square; a pair of dark brown oxford shoes with medallion; and a vintage Anglo Swiss Watch Co., CAVALRY, split second, manual winding watch.

Today, for the fourth day I am wearing all patterns and today it is the most pronounced. Due to the very strong and dominating pattern of the suit, I paired with a less prominent shirt with a subtle blue graph check, which from a distance appears white. Now I needed a patterned tie that will not conflict with the suit and shirt. I ruled out any check or stripe as it will conflict with the bold suit. Similarly, a tie with too closely spaced dots is also not suitable as it will clash with the shirt. Therefore, I selected a tie with some widely spaced small patterns on it.

However, it is preferable to wear a white or pastel colored shirt and a plain tie with this suit.

Today also I am wearing four patterns. The suit is a 2-button, peaked-lapel, blue on blue pinstripe; the shirt is a stripe of blue, white, and yellow; the silk tie is a thin blue stripe on a red background; and finally, the cotton pocket square is a maroon stripe. Today’s watch is a vintage Mido “Ocean Star” 17 Jewel, Shockprotected, manual winding version.

 

What I am wearing today (25 June 2012)

Today I am wearing a dark brown pinstripe, 2-button, peaked-lapel suit; a white/yellow striped shirt with french cuffs; a yellow tie with black square patterns; a Burberry print pocket square;  a pair of dark brown, cap-toed oxford shoes; and a 1950 vintage, 10-micron gold plated, West End Watch Co,, Sowar, Prima, automatic watch in a mid-brown leather strap.

If you would notice, today also I am wearing four patterns: The suit is a pinstripe, the shirt is also a stripe, and both the tie and pocket square are checks. Now, you are to judge if the patterns clash.
