What I am wearing today (20 September 2012)

Today is Thursday and therefore dress-down day for me. Consequently, I am wearing a blazer/trousers combination. Today’s blazer is Navy, double-breasted, 6X1, with golden metal buttons. I paired the blazer with a pair of off-white/cream trousers. I am also wearing a white/blue striped cotton shirt with French cuffs. Today I am also wearing a striped silk tie in blue/violet/yellow and white. The material of blue/white check pocket square is cotton. The monk-strap (or simply monk) shoes are of chestnut color. And finally, today’s watch is a 1960 vintage Camy Geneve Friendship with date. This is a manually wound watch.

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 (19 July 2012)

Today is Thursday and I am wearing a blazer/trousers combination. Today’s blazer is a black/brown check, 3-button, notch-lapel, and it has been matched with black trousers. The shirt I selected today is maroon in color, and has tabbed collar and French cuffs. The tie is stripes of blue/light purple/deep purple/golden yellow, and it has been coordinated with a maroon silk pocket square.

I am wearing today a pair of suede double-monk-strap (double-monk) shoes. Today’s watch is a 1963 vintage Bulova manual winding with date. It not only has a repainted black dial but also the texts on the dial are wrong.  The dial contains the word, “Sowar”, which is a brand name of West End Watches, and therefore, is wrong. Nevertheless, it’s a beautiful watch. I am wearing the watch with a Nato G10 Nylon strap in black.
