What I am wearing today (6 August 2012)

I have a weakness for the color red. Red is my most favorite color. So, whenever I can, I tend to overdo on red. Today I am wearing  a red pinstripe on dark blue, 3-button, notch-lapel suit; a red/white Bengal stripe shirt with French cuffs;  a silk knit tie in blue/red horizontal stripes; a red silk pocket square; a pair of reddish-brown, double-monk shoes; and a 1960 vintage Favre-Leuba, Geneve, Duomatic (automatic) stainless steel date watch with a blue dial.

 

 

 

What I am wearing today (5 August 2012)

Today I am wearing a blue pinstripe over dark blue, three-button,  notch-lapel suit; a blue on blue micro-check shirt with tabbed collar and French cuffs; a blue silk tie with  small white polka dots; a blue silk pocket square;  a pair of black half-brogue oxford shoes; and a 1950 vintage West End Watch Company, Sowar, Prima, manual winding military watch, with black dial and white hour, minute, and second hand. Notice that the watch is rather small (31mm, without crown), characteristic of watches from 30-50s.
