What I am wearing today (22 July 2014)

Today I am wearing a woolen gun-club check full-canvas handmade 2-button notch-lapel suit with a ticket pocket. The suit has 100% pure silk lining, matching Corozo buttons and all buttonholes are hand-sewn. I am also wearing a contrast collar graph check shirt with a collar pin, a silk tie in blue/white/green stripes, a red silk pocket square, a pair of brown double-monk shoes, and a vintage West End Watch Company Sower Prima automatic day/date watch in a black leather strap. Today’s suit has three pierces and I am not wearing the waistcoat today.

What I am wearing today (10 July 2014)

Today is Thursday and as usual for Thursday’s I am wearing today a combination. Wearing similar outfits again and again becomes very boring and I felt an urge to wear something new, if not entirely new-maybe a new combination. Therefore, today I am wearing a full canvas silk-lined Sports Jacket with a collar tab and a ticket pocket. The trousers are silk-lined white linen Jodhpurs. To complete this equestrian look I thought I gives me a rare opportunity to  wear my brown Jodhpur  boots. I have hardly seen anyone wearing a tie with Jodhpurs—so I thought let’s do something new not only wear a tie but let’s make the shirt a little bit more interesting. Therefore, I am wearing a purple and white check cotton shirt with white collar and cuffs. This shirt has many more secrets which I will present in future posts. Oh! I forgot to mention the collar is perforated so that I can wear a silver collar pin. I mentioned about the footwear which is a pair of brown Jodhpur boots. I though a white linen pocket square will go nicely with the maroon/black/white silk knit tie. And of course, all the button holes are hand sewn with silk threads.

I would appreciate your comments on this look.

What I am wearing today (7 July 2014)

Suddenly I realized that the way I dress has become very predictable: suits first four days of the week and a jacket/trousers combination for Thursday. I need to break this monotony. Therefore today instead of wearing a suit I chose to wear a jacket/trousers combination. It seems that for some reason I love my new jacket with a shirt-sleeve shoulder. The lightly-padded wool check in brown and beige is handmade, full canvas, 100% silk lined, and all the button holes are hand-sewn. The lapel is also a bit wider than usual. I have paired the jacket with a brown PoW check woolen trousers with 100% silk lining. I chose to wear a light pink shirt with French cuffs with the jacket/trousers combination. I thought a red silk knit tie with small white dots will go nicely with the ensemble. A pink/white check linen pocket square and a brown Tussle Loafer completes today’s attire.  I did not change the watch, i.e., it’s the same Movado I wore yesterday.
