Today I am wearing a light tan, 2-button, notch-lapel, linen suit; a hand loom cotton check shirt; a brown silk tie with small flower patterns; a brown and navy printed silk pocket square; a pair of brown double monk strap shoes; and finally, a vintage Sicura Automatic watch.
The glass (crystal) of the watch is damaged. Also damaged are some of the stones in the dial. Trying to find a replacement crystal for the watch. I am not sure about the age of this watch.
Today’s attire consists of a three-button, notch-lapel, glen plaid suit with a ticket pocket; a white hand loom made cotton shirt with french-cuffs; a blue silk tie with small patterns on it; a blue patterned printed pocket square; a pair of dark brown derby shoes; and finally, a very old (1940’s), manual winding, Cyma Navy Star wristwatch.
When I had received the watch its condition was so bad that I had to get the watch’s body re0enameled and the dial redone. As a result, now it looks almost new!
Today I am wearing a glen plaid (aka Glenurquhart check) double-breasted, six-buttons, suit; a very light pink shirt with tabbed collar and french-cuffs; a striped necktie in light blue/light pink/ shocking pink colored stripes; and a pink pocket square; a pair of fancy oxford shoes with side laces. Today’s watch is an Omega Constellation Chronometer Automatic.
Today’s suit fabric has brown chalk-stripes over a kind of dark blue/bluish black background. The suit is three buttons, notch-lapel, and unlike most of my suits, has no back vents. My preference is two back vents. I would say this suit is also a tad lengthy–in my opinion two inch shorter would have been ideal. I paired the suit with a graph-check shirt with french-cuffs. Today I chose to wear a patterned silk necktie in yellow/brown shade to complement the brown colors in both the shirt and pocket square. The pocket square has two colors; navy and brown.
The shoes I am wearing today are brown cap-toed oxfords. Today’s I am wearing a 1960 vintage 17 jewels Tressa, manual winding, stainless steel watch. By the way, I am also wearing a brown belt today.
A dark gray windowpane, 2-button, notch-lapel suit with cuffed trousers; a white shirt with James Bond Cuff (AKA Cocktail Cuff). Cocktail cuffs can have one button or two buttons closing; however, today’s shirt cuffs have one button closing. Today’s tie has white polka dots over a dark red background and I am wearing it with a half Windsor knot. The shoes are very simple and unadorned black cap-toed oxfords. The watch I am wearing today is a gold plated Tissot Automatic vintage 1980.
Today I am wearing gray striped black, 2-button, notch-lapel suit; blue spread-collar, french-cuff shirt; dark blue tie with small paisley patterns; blue pocket square; black leather belt with a silver colored buckle; black cap-toed oxford shoes, and a 1960’s vintage Favre-Leuba Geneve Sea King, manual winding, black dial, wristwatch.
As I am today wearing a spread-collar shirt, I decided to change my usual tie knot. To make the knot a little bigger and fill the gap of the spread-collar, today I used a Pratt knot. You find information here how to tie a Pratt knot http://www.tie-a-tie.net/pratt.html.
A gray double breasted, six-button suit with a white shirt forms the cornerstone of my ensemble today. With a white shirt you can year any tie; however, in my opinion a tie with some white in it is the ideal tie for a white shirt. Consequently, I am wearing a red tie with white polka dots. The knot is four-in-hand. I am also wearing dark brown, cap-toed, oxfords. The watch I am wearing today is same watch as yesterday’s.
Today’s outfit includes a chalk stripe dark gray, peaked lapel, two-button suit paired with a light blue shirt. Both the necktie and pocket squares are paisley designs. Today I am wearing dark brown derby shoes and suspenders. The watch is a Rado Diastar Stainless Steel scratch proof version. This is an automatic (mechanical) watch.
Slowly the pleasant days of winter is melting into the hot and humid summer. I thought it was time to dust and steam my linen suits and get ready for summer. Today I was wearing this linen suit with a gingham linen shirt. As it’s always wise to pair a solid tie with a gingham shirt, I chose this dark blue silk knit tie and a blue pocket square. The suit looks white but it’s actually a black pinstripe over tan/white background. Today I am wearing a simple black Skagen dress watch.

today’s shoe is a black double monk, as shown below:
Notice the black socks. Today I did not match the color of the socks with the color of the trousers. Why? Be3cause one never wears a white socks–white socks are only for sports. Don’t ever wear white socks with suits, even if the suit is white. If you wear a white suit, the socks color should match the color of your shoe.
