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?
Today also I am wearing four patterns. The suit is a 2-button, peaked-lapel, blue on blue pinstripe; the shirt is a stripe of blue, white, and yellow; the silk tie is a thin blue stripe on a red background; and finally, the cotton pocket square is a maroon stripe. Today’s watch is a vintage Mido “Ocean Star” 17 Jewel, Shockprotected, manual winding version.
Today I decided to dress casual in a trousers/blazer combination. Therefore, today I am wearing a 2-button, notch-lapel blazer with patch pockets; a pink and white striped shirt with barrel cuff; a dark pink silk knit tie with small white polka dots; a lighter pink pocket square; a pair of dark brown monk-strap shoes; and finally a 1960 vintage Favre Leuba Sea Chief, manual winding watch in a brown leather strap. The watch has original dial and body. It has only been serviced.
Today I am wearing a bluish gray double-breasted suit, pink gingham shirt with pink cuff-links, pink tie with white polka dots, white pocket square, and light brown monk shoes. I have not changed the watch and it’s the vintage Omega Seamaster Automatic 1958.
