What I am wearing today (12 July 2012)

Today I am wearing, similar to previous Thursday’s, a blazer/trousers combination. Today I am wearing a double-breasted (6X2) Navy blazer with golden buttons; cream trousers; a light lavender shirt with tabbed-collars and french cuffs; a silk seven-fold, blue patterned tie with small purple dots;  a purple patterned pocket square; a pair of dark brown monk-strap shoes; and a vintage and rare gold plated Rado Golden Horse, automatic, day/date watch in a brown leather strap.



Today, there is also a photograph of a young man, who works for the Pan Pacific Sonargaon Hotel, in Dhaka, Bangladesh. He is a follower of this blog. Don’t you think a white (cotton, linen, or silk) pocket square would be an appropriate addition to his ensemble?


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 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

Today I am wearing a white linen suit with black pinstripes. This is two button version with a fish-tail notch lapel. Recently I have been wearing this suit more frequently than is usual. I also love today’s shirt which is a hand loom cotton shirt in micro stripes. I am finding hand loom cottons to be particularly suitable for hot and humid weathers. You must try them to appreciate these shirts. A chose to wear a black, gray, and purple striped silk tie and a silk pocket square in black and red.

Today’s ensemble is a good example of matching various patterns. You must have noticed that everything that I am wearing today contain patterns. The suit is a stripe, the shirt is a check, the tie is again a stripe, the pocket square is a pattern is red and black. The trick in matching stripes, checks and other patterns is scale. Vary the scales so that they do not clash. Judge for yourself how effectively I have been able to mix the patterns today.

Today I am wearing a 1980 vintage Tissot Automatic with a black leather strap. I seem to have damaged the watch’s dial. I discovered this when taking a photograph of the watch today. I have been wearing this watch for the last two days.

Today’s shoes are black double-monks.
