Omega Pocket watch
Have you noticed that the ceramic dial of the watch is slightly cracked? The “seconds” hand is also interesting–it points to both directions!

 

 

What I am wearing today (24 March 2013)

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.

Longines Manual Winding

What I am wearing today (4 October 2012)

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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 (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?
