When I woke up in the morning, the sky was overcast. The blazing summer sun, now cloaked in a gray veil, appeared less angry. At around 8:00 a.m., it was about 26 degrees Centigrade, when only few days back it was hovering around 35-38. Normally, in Bangladesh monsoon dominates in full force by the start of June; however, monsoon is tardy this year
Usually, I decide on the daily wardrobe the night before. However, today it was not possible because last evening I attended a wedding reception, returned home quite late, and did not feel like to go through the rituals of arranging an ensemble, which includes ironing, polishing, selecting, etc.
When I selected my ensemble today, I had an urge to wear a charcoal suit and white shirt. Therefore, today’s I am wearing a charcoal gray, 2-button, peaked-lapel, suit; a white shirt with James Bond Cuffs; a black/white checkered tie; a white linen pocket square; and a pair of black cap-toed oxford shoes.
Today, I am also wearing a 1950 vintage and elegant, Anglo Swiss Watch Company, Cavalry, dress watch in stainless steel.
Another interesting thing happened today. Some of my colleagues wanted to model for my blog. Therefore, today I am also posting photographs of two of my coworkers.
Today I am wearing a ash gray, 2-button, notch-lapel suit; a bluish check shirt with tabbed collar and french cuffs; a gray/white patterned silk tie; a white linen pocket square; a pair of black cap-toed oxford shoes; and a vintage Rado Voyager day/date automatic in stainless steel.
Today I am wearing a khaki 2-button, notch-lapel suit; a blue check, hand-loom cotton shirt with french cuffs; a printed blue silk tie; a printed blue pocket square; a pair of dark brown, cap-toed oxford shoes; and a 1960 vintage, manual winding, gold plated Sandoz watch in a brown leather strap.
Today was the birthday of my coworker, Moon. She is the one that takes the photographs everyday for this blog.
Today I was wearing a brown, two-button, notch-lapel suit; a brownish striped shirt with barrel cuffs; a reddish tie with some patterns on it; a brown/navy printed pocket square; a pair of brown cap-toed oxford shoes; and a vintage gold plated Titas Automatic watch with day and date functions.
Today is Thursday, the day before the weekends start here and I am already in a holiday mood. My today’s attire is a classic combination consisting of a 3-button, notch-lapel navy blazer; a light blue tabbed-collar shirt with french cuffs; gray flannel trousers; a blue/violet/yellow-orange striped tie; a violet pocket square; and a pair of brown loafers.
Today’s I am wearing a very beautiful 1960-70 vintage gold plated Favre Leuba Geneve “Twin Power,” date, manual winding watch in a brown leather strap.The watch is with its original dial, bezel, and crystal. You may notice that the crystal is lightly chipped around the “3” mark of the dial. I decided not to change the original crystal.
Today I am wearing a 2-button, peaked-lapel, blue suit with maroon prinstripes; a maroon candy striped shirt with french cuffs; a maroon silk tie with Fleur-de-lis prints; a maroon check cotton printed pocket square; a pair of dark brown oxford shoes with medallion toes; and a 1960 vintage Favre Leuba, Sea King, manual winding watch with white dials.
Today I am wearing a glen plaid, 2-button, notch-lapel suit; a pink shirt with french cuffs; a tartan tie in red/green/blue/pink; a Macclesfield printed silk pocket square; a pair of light brown derby shoes; and a 1960 vintage gold plated Favre Leuba, Duomatic, day, date watch in a brown leather strap.
Today is the first time I am wearing this grey glen plaid suit with brown shoes. It doesn’t look that bad, does it? I rather like the look. Normally I would have advised wearing black shoes with this suit. But now I am not so sure. Brown shoes look equally good and from now on I would use both brown and black shoes with this suit. I think the color of the shirt is also important. A white shirt with this suit would probably look better with black shoes.
