What I am wearing today (4 October 2012)

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.

What I am wearing today (7 June 2012)

Today I decided to dress casual in a trousers/blazer combination. Therefore, today I am wearing a 2-button, notch-lapel blazer with patch pockets; a pink and white striped shirt with barrel cuff; a dark pink silk knit tie with small white polka dots; a lighter pink pocket square; a pair of dark brown monk-strap shoes; and finally a 1960 vintage Favre Leuba Sea Chief, manual winding watch in a brown leather strap. The watch has original dial and body. It has only been serviced.

 

What I am wearing today (26 April 2012)

What I am wearing today (29 March 2012)

Today I am wearing a white linen 2-button suit with thin black stripes and white club-collar double-cuff shirt. The suit’s lapel is what is called a “fish-mouth” lapel. A linen suit is an informal suit and one should avoid wearing on for formal occasions. A silk knit tie is also more informal choice compared with a plain silk tie. Therefore, a silk knit tie is a good choice for a linen suit. The knit tie’s color is dark blue. Today I am wearing a printed pocket square with lot of blue in it and coordinates well with the blue tie. The choice of shoes is a black double-monk. Again a monk (both single and double) is less formal than a lace-up, and the most formal among lace-ups are oxfords. A monk is a good option for a linen suit. I am particularly fond of monk shoes and would often wear them even with very formal suits and occasions. Today’s wrist watch is a Favre-Leuba Geneve Sea King, manual winding version from 1962. The watch has a black dial and coordinates well with the black stripes of the suits and other black accessories. Finally, today I am wearing a black leather belt.
