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 (16 April 2012)

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.
