What I am wearing today (27 October 2012)

Today I am wearing an ash colored glen plaid, 1-button, peaked-lapel suit; a white cotton shirt with French cuffs; a textured ash colored silk tie; a white linen pocket square; a pair of black cap-toed shoes; and a vintage Rado Voyager Automatic in Stainless Steel.

Please note that a 1-button suit is considered to be a fashion-forward suit and not suitable for normal office wear. I can get away for two reasons: first, is that I am a CEO and can get away with it; and second, that very few people over here understand about suits. If you are going to face an interview, I would recommend that you wear either a three or two button suit in conservative colors.

On the other hand, just don’t give a damn and wear whatever you want.

 

 

 

What I am wearing today (23 August 2012)

I am back from a long holiday. My internet had some problems yesterday and therefore yesterday’s post in being published today.

Today I am wearing a charcoal gray, 2-button, peaked-lapel suit; a red check, hand loom cotton shirt with French cuffs; a solid red silk tie; a white linen pocket square; a pair of black oxford shoes; and a vintage Omega Constellation Chronometer automatic.

Normally, I prefer to wear either white, light blue, or light pink shirts with this suit. However, today I wanted to experiment with a red check shirt with a red tie. A red tie combined with a plain white, light blue, or light pink would be a very standard combination. However, today’s combination is a little challenging. But my opinion is that today’s ensemble came our nicely. I was, however, tempted to use a red pocket square but resisted the urge and used a white one instead. Too much matching is boring to the eyes.

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.

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 (2 August 2012)

Today again is a Thursday and like other Thursday’s today I am wearing a blazer/trousers combination. The hunter green blazer is single-button, peaked lapel and with metal buttons. The trousers are brown and the shirt is also brown/white Bengal Stripe. The shirt has barrel cuff. The shoes are brown monk-straps. I am wearing a maroon silk tie with woven white paisley patterns. I am also wearing a maroon silk pocket square.

Though I normally do not wear lapel pins, as an exception I am wearing one today to celebrate the Olympic spirit. This pin is from the Atlanta Olympic of 1996. I visited Atlanta just before the Olympic and this was a souvenir.

Today’s watch is a 1965 vintage Tissot Visodate Seastar Seven manual winding with a golden bazel.
