What I am wearing today (11 September 2012)

Today I am wearing a tan colored, 2-button, notch-lapel, linen suit with a ticket pocket; a striped cotton shirt in white/blue with French cuffs; a horizontal striped silk knit tie in maroon/blue/white; a silk pocket square in blue/maroon; a pair of spectator derby shoes in brown and beige; and a vintage Tissot automatic watch with a brown leather belt.

What I am wearing today (19 July 2012)

Today is Thursday and I am wearing a blazer/trousers combination. Today’s blazer is a black/brown check, 3-button, notch-lapel, and it has been matched with black trousers. The shirt I selected today is maroon in color, and has tabbed collar and French cuffs. The tie is stripes of blue/light purple/deep purple/golden yellow, and it has been coordinated with a maroon silk pocket square.

I am wearing today a pair of suede double-monk-strap (double-monk) shoes. Today’s watch is a 1963 vintage Bulova manual winding with date. It not only has a repainted black dial but also the texts on the dial are wrong.  The dial contains the word, “Sowar”, which is a brand name of West End Watches, and therefore, is wrong. Nevertheless, it’s a beautiful watch. I am wearing the watch with a Nato G10 Nylon strap in black.

 

 

 

 

What I am wearing today (21 June 2012)

Today is Thursday—the day before the start of weekends in Bangladesh. The sky remained overcast with occasional patches of blue visible through the gray and white blanket of cloud. Dhaka’s skyline, visible from my 12th floor office, looked kind of gloomy, as if waiting for something ominous to happen. I glimpsed a few pigeons as they sprinted by the window like planes performing aerobics.

To break the monotony of suits, I have resolved not to wear suits on Thursdays. Instead, I would wear a blazer/trousers combination. As a result, today I am wearing a three-button woolen blazer in ash- blue and black; a light blue cotton shirt with French cuffs; a black woolen tie; a blue silk pocket square; a pair of black Chelsea boots. Today I am also wearing a vintage (I don’t know the exact date) square-shaped, Rado automatic with date in stainless steel. What is interesting about this watch is that the Rado logo is unlike the traditional “floating anchor” logo of Rado. Instead, the logo is simply “RADO” written on the dial.
