What I am wearing today (22 July 2014)

Today I am wearing a woolen gun-club check full-canvas handmade 2-button notch-lapel suit with a ticket pocket. The suit has 100% pure silk lining, matching Corozo buttons and all buttonholes are hand-sewn. I am also wearing a contrast collar graph check shirt with a collar pin, a silk tie in blue/white/green stripes, a red silk pocket square, a pair of brown double-monk shoes, and a vintage West End Watch Company Sower Prima automatic day/date watch in a black leather strap. Today’s suit has three pierces and I am not wearing the waistcoat today.

What I am wearing today (6 August 2012)

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.
