What I am wearing today (2 September 2012)

Today I am wearing a blue, 2-button, notch-lapel suit with a ticket pocket. The shirt is a light pink with tabbed-collar and French cuffs. I am wearing a printed silk pink tie with a pink silk pocket square. Instead of my usual braces (suspenders), today I am wearing a leather belt. Today’s shoes are black cap-toed oxfords, and today’s watch is a very rare vintage square shaped Rado Diastar automatic dress watch.

Today I am wearing a blazer/trousers combination.  The three-button navy blue notch-lapel blazer has silver metal buttons. The pleated trousers have light blue stripes over dark blue background; the light purple shirt has tabbed collar and French cuffs. Today I am wearing a printed silk tie with paisleys and other patterns over a greenish-blue background. The silk pocket square is yellow. Today I am also wearing a pair of black double-monk shoes and a (?) vintage West End Watch Company, Sowar, Prima, Automatic, Stainless Steel watch.

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.

 

 

 

What I am wearing today (5 August 2012)

Today I am wearing a blue pinstripe over dark blue, three-button,  notch-lapel suit; a blue on blue micro-check shirt with tabbed collar and French cuffs; a blue silk tie with  small white polka dots; a blue silk pocket square;  a pair of black half-brogue oxford shoes; and a 1950 vintage West End Watch Company, Sowar, Prima, manual winding military watch, with black dial and white hour, minute, and second hand. Notice that the watch is rather small (31mm, without crown), characteristic of watches from 30-50s.

 

 

What I am wearing today (30 July 2012)

Today I am wearing a light ash-brown glen plaid double-breasted (2X6) suit; a light purple tabbed-collar shirt with French cuffs; a deep-purple silk tie; a purple printed silk pocket square; a pair of dark brown oxford whole-cut shoes; and a 1960s vintage Camy Sputnik manual winding watch in a brown leather strap.

Please note that the watch dial reads “Popular,” which is wrong. When I gave the dial to be repainted, the painter made an error and wrongly painted the dial as “Popular” instead of the correct “Sputnik.” “Popular” is another line of Camy watches and if you search this blog, you will find some “Popular” Camy models as well.
