Today I am wearing a blue full-canvas half-lined 2-button notch-lapel linen suit with all patch pockets and white Mother of Pearl (MoP) buttons, a pink cotton shirt with French cuffs and collar pins, a dark pink silk tie with patterns, a white linen pocket square with pink borders, a pure silver lapel chain with a pink river pearl, a pair of brown brogue oxford shoes, and a 1960 vintage Tudor Oyster Prince Rotor Self Winding (automatic) stainless steel watch and bracelet.
Today I am wearing a sports jacket/trousers combination. Today I am wearing a greenish glen plaid double-breasted (6X2) sports jacket, a pair of maroon trousers, a printed silk tie in maroon and green, a maroon printed silk pocket square, and a pair of brown ankle boots. Someone asked my why some of the suit buttons are so shiny. Many of the my suits and sports jackets have mother of pearl (MOP) buttons and MOP buttons tend to be very shiny.
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.
