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?

What I am wearing today (5 July 2012)

Today is a Thursday and as previous Thursdays, I am wearing a jacket/trousers combination. Today it’s a white and gray striped linen, notch-lapel, 2-button blazer matched with a dark gray trousers. A white cotton shirt with tabbed-collars and french cuffs, a silk tie with pink window panes, and a pink pocket square with blue borders completes the ensemble. In my opinion only a pair of black shoes are suitable with the above combination. Consequently, today I am wearing a pair of plain cap-toed shoes.

Today, I am wearing a 1940 vintage West End Watch Co., Sowar, Prima, manual winding with with a bonklip-imitation bracelet.

Also, today I was attending an event on IT Security organized by the Bangladesh Banking CTO forum, IBM, and my company. Some of the photographs are with some of the event participants.

What I am wearing today (28 June 2012)

Surprise, surprise! It’s a Thursday again!

Like previous Thursday’s, today I am wearing a blazer/trousers combination. The checkered blazer I am wearing today is 2-button, notch-lapel version; paired with a brown trousers with folded cuffs. The shirt I chose to wear today is a blue with black and white windowpanes. Today’s brown tie has small white woven flowers. The printed pocket square has read, black, and traces of yellow on it. I am wearing a pair of brown double monk strap shoes today.

And finally, today’s watch is a 1960 vintage, gold plated, RADO, Voyager, with day and date.

Like rest of the days this week, today also I am wearing four patterns: 1. Check suit, 2. Windowpane shirt, 3. Patterned tie, and 4. Printed pocket square. Unfortunately, I don’t seem to own a checkered or striped pair of trousers.

 

 

What I am wearing today (27 June 2012)

Today I am wearing a Price of Wales check, 2-button, notch-lapel suit; a blue over white graph-check shirt with tabbed collar and french cuffs; a yellow tie with small gray patterns; a brownish silk tie-dye pocket square; a pair of dark brown oxford shoes with medallion; and a vintage Anglo Swiss Watch Co., CAVALRY, split second, manual winding watch.

Today, for the fourth day I am wearing all patterns and today it is the most pronounced. Due to the very strong and dominating pattern of the suit, I paired with a less prominent shirt with a subtle blue graph check, which from a distance appears white. Now I needed a patterned tie that will not conflict with the suit and shirt. I ruled out any check or stripe as it will conflict with the bold suit. Similarly, a tie with too closely spaced dots is also not suitable as it will clash with the shirt. Therefore, I selected a tie with some widely spaced small patterns on it.

However, it is preferable to wear a white or pastel colored shirt and a plain tie with this suit.
