Today I am wearing a 2-button, notch-lapel, black in black pattern suit; a white shirt with James Bond Cuff (aka Cocktail Cuffs); a black and white striped tie; a white linen pocket square; a pair of black cap-toed oxford shoes; and a vintage West End Watch Company, Sowar, Prima, Day/Date, two-tone automatic watch with a black dial.
Today’s photographs were taken at my harberdasher’s.
Today I am wearing a striped light gray, 2-button, notch lapel, linen/cotton blended suit; a black/white gingham handloomed cotton shirt with barrel cuff; silk knit ties; a Burberry check pocket square, and a pair of very dark brown (almost black) suede chukka boots.
I am very excited about the shirt I am wearing. This is my first shirt made from handloomed cotton. It’s extremely comfortable. It’s soft and supple and this tailored shirt fits the body like a glove. It’s so light that I don’t feel like I am wearing a shirt! I have been so impressed with this shirt that I have already ordered a dozen similar shirts. More on handloomed cotton shirts when I receive them.
Today’s watch is a 1960 vintage West End Watch Company, Sower, Prima with day and date. The dial is adorned with 10 jewels. The watch has a similar look to a Rolex Oyster Perpetual.
