Today I am wearing a brown/beige check woolen 2-button notch-lapel sports jacket, a pair of tan woolen trousers, a blue cotton windowpane shirt with French cuffs, a blue-orange silk knit tie, a blue linen pocket square, and a pair of dark brown monk-strap shoes.
Today I am wearing a silk/linen blend 2-button fish-mouth lapel suit, blue/white striped striped cotton shirt with French cuffs, a peach silk tie, a multicolored linen pocket square, and a pair of light brown monk-strap shoes.
Today I am wearing a light-ash double-breasted suit, a light blue shirt with black/white windowpanes, an Indian Army Eastern Command Regimental striped silk, a Macclesfield printed silk pocket square in blue, a pair light brown double monk-strap shoes, and a 1950 vintage Anglo Swiss Watch Company CAVALRY manual winding watch with split second.
Today I am wearing a natural tan colored, 2-button, notch-lapel suit; a blue cotton check shirt with French cuffs and tabbed collar; a blue silk tie; a blue pocket square with white polka dots; a pair of tan monk-strap shoes; and the same watch I wore the previous day.
As the mercury climbs, it’s time to dust off the cotton, linen, and seersucker suits. Today I am wearing a white/gray striped cotton/linen blended 2-button, notch-lapel suit; a light blue cotton shirt with French cuffs; a blue/orange striped knitted silk tie; a blue cotton pocket square with white polka dots; a pair of black monk-strap shoes; and a vintage manual winding Longines watch.
Thursday is back and as other Thursdays I am wearing a combination today. The keystone of today’s ensemble is a double-breasted (4X2) cotton sports jacket paired with ecru colored trousers. Today’s shirt is a white/light gray/light green linen gingham with French cuffs and the colors of the check silk knit tie are maroon, black, and white. Today’s pocket square is a printed silk one with maroon, blue, and gray colors. I thought a pair of brown colored monk shoes would be appropriate for today.
Though the watch is a very simple manual winding vintage Tressa with a large white dial, still for some unknown reasons, I find today’s watch to be aesthetically very pleasing. It may be because of its simplicity.
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.
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?
