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 (28 June 2012)

Surprise, surprise! It’s a Thursday again!

Like previous Thursday’s, today I am wearing a blazer/trousers combination. The checkered blazer I am wearing today is 2-button, notch-lapel version; paired with a brown trousers with folded cuffs. The shirt I chose to wear today is a blue with black and white windowpanes. Today’s brown tie has small white woven flowers. The printed pocket square has read, black, and traces of yellow on it. I am wearing a pair of brown double monk strap shoes today.

And finally, today’s watch is a 1960 vintage, gold plated, RADO, Voyager, with day and date.

Like rest of the days this week, today also I am wearing four patterns: 1. Check suit, 2. Windowpane shirt, 3. Patterned tie, and 4. Printed pocket square. Unfortunately, I don’t seem to own a checkered or striped pair of trousers.

 

 

What I am wearing today (14 June 2012)

Today is Thursday, the day before the weekends start here and I am already in a holiday mood. My today’s attire is a  classic combination consisting of a 3-button, notch-lapel navy blazer; a light blue tabbed-collar shirt with french cuffs; gray flannel trousers; a blue/violet/yellow-orange striped tie; a violet pocket square; and a pair of brown loafers.

Today’s I am wearing a very beautiful 1960-70 vintage gold plated Favre Leuba Geneve “Twin Power,” date, manual winding watch in a brown leather strap.The watch is with its original dial, bezel, and crystal. You may notice that the crystal is lightly chipped around the “3” mark of the dial. I decided not to change the original crystal.

Today I am wearing a blue, two-button, notch-lapel suit; a white/blue striped shirt with french cuffs; a maroon tie with small paisley patterns; a white pocket square; a pair of reddish brown cap-toed oxford shoes; a vintage and somewhat enigmatic Favre Leuba Seikomatic, manual winding, gold plated watch.

 

The enigma stems from the fact that the term “Seikomatic” is a term used by Seiko Watch Company and not by Favre Leuba. I have not been able to find any record that Seiko and Favre Leuba ever cooperated on any watch. I have also searched the Net without any success for any Favre Leuba watch with “Seikomatic.” I did occur to me that the dial could be a modification by some watch mechanic. Now that I had two identical Favre Leuba watches with “Seikomatic” inscribed on the dial, I am convinced  about the authenticity of the diall.

The movement inside the watch is the standard FL-253, as shown below:

What I am wearing today (27 May 2012)

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.

 

 

What I am wearing today (24 May 2012)

Today I decided not to wear a suit but to go with a double-breasted, six-button, navy blazer with beige trousers.  I selected a shirt from my recent favorites–hand loom cotton check in red and white and a red silk tie with thin blue stripes. I thought a white linen pocket square would go nicely with this combination (I also thought of using a red pocket square but finally decided in favor of white because three red items would be overdoing it.)
The shoes that I am wearing today are reddish brown double monk straps. Today’s watch is a 1963 vintage Seiko 17 Jewels manual winding version. given that the watch is nearly fifth years old, its condition is superb. Both the body and dial are in the original state.
