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 (24 June 2012)

Today I am wearing a dark blue, 3-button, notch-lapel, suit with light blue stripes; a blue candy-stripe shirt with french cuffs; a blue, teal, and black broad-stripe silk tie; a Macclesfield printed silk pocket square in blue and red; a pair of black cap-toed oxford shoes; and a 1960 vintage Omaga Seamaster, manual winding watch in stainless steel with a black leather strap.

If you look carefully at today’s ensemble, you will find that I am wearing all patterns: Three stripes (suit, shirt, and tie) and one print (pocket square). The easiest thing to wear is a white shirt with a suit; because white (which is not a color but a lack of any color) goes with anything. You can wear a white shirt with any suit. Also, almost any tie would go with a white shirt. There are many people who wear nothing but white shirts. Difficulties start when you decide to wear anything but a white shirt and difficulties are compounded when you start experimenting with pattern mixing. However, each day this week I would be wearing patterns–all patterns; stripes, checks, prints, gingham, etc. The objective is to get ideas on combinations those work and also those that don’t work out.
