Today I am wearing a combination: a full-canvas silk-lined handmade blue cotton gabardine blazer with cream bone buttons, a pair of tan woolen trousers, a light pink cotton shirt, a blue/pink check silk bow tie, a pink silk pocket square with blue borders, and a pair of brown tussle loafers.
Today I am wearing a woolen full-canvas blue plaid check handmade double breasted suit with wide-lapel. This suit is, like many of my recent suits, 100% silk lined suit and the buttons are Corozo. I am also wearing a blue/black/white striped cotton shirt with contrast collar and cuffs, a pink silk tie with some patterns, a pink linen pocket square, and a pair of reddish-brown Adelaide oxford shoes. No change in watch.
Today I am wearing a woolen gun-club check full-canvas handmade 2-button notch-lapel suit with a ticket pocket. The suit has 100% pure silk lining, matching Corozo buttons and all buttonholes are hand-sewn. I am also wearing a contrast collar graph check shirt with a collar pin, a silk tie in blue/white/green stripes, a red silk pocket square, a pair of brown double-monk shoes, and a vintage West End Watch Company Sower Prima automatic day/date watch in a black leather strap. Today’s suit has three pierces and I am not wearing the waistcoat today.
Today I am wearing a mustard colored 2-button notch-lapel linen suit with a ticket pocket, a blue cotton shirt with French cuffs, a mustard/yellow/blue striped silk knit tie, a blue linen pocket square with white dots, and a pair of brown/beige Derby shoes.
Today I am wearing a black/gray woolen hound’s-tooth single breasted full-canvas hand-made 100% silk lined suit with a ticket pocket, a micro-tattersall check cotton shirt with contrast collar and cuff, a light gray silk tie with large pink checks, a pink-check linen pocket square, and a pair of black plain-toe oxford shoes.
If you notice carefully, you will find that today I am wearing four patterns: The suit is hound’s-tooth, the shirt is tattersall, the tie is another check, and finally the pocket square which is also a micro check. Wearing four patterns is a difficult undertaking and are often discouraged by the “experts”. You be the judge of today’s combination and don’t forget to leave a comment.
Another new feature is the jacket’s sleeve which has been attached in such a way so that a hump is created at the junction. This technique is known as “con rollino” shoulder.
Today is Thursday and keeping with tradition I am wearing a woolen Sports Jacket/Trousers combination. The sports jacket I am wearing today is self designed and is intended for travelling—it’s what I call a travel jacket. The jacket is full canvas and handmade (including hand sewn button holes). The buttons are corozo. I have paired the jacket with a pair of Jodhpur trousers. This is my first Jodhpurs and I am very impressed with it—it’s very comfortable and for travelling this will be ideal. I have already commissioned another two Jodhpur Trousers with a slightly different design. As you know, Jodhpurs are designed for riding and because it has lot of room just below the waist, it should also be comfortable when having to sit in cramped aircraft seats. Today I am also wearing a pair of brown Chukka Boots which also have a equestrian origin. Other accouterments include a blue/white cotton check shirt with barrel cuff, a blue/yellow horizontal striped silk knit tie, and a yellow silk pocket square with blue border.
Today I am wearing a combination of a Sports Jacket and trousers: a full-canvas handmade 100% silk lined cream linen 2-button peak-lapel jacket, a pair of black woolen trousers, a white/blue striped shirt with white collar and cuffs, a black/white silk knit tie, a white linen pocket square with black borders, and a pair of black double-monk strap shoes.
Today I am wearing a blue pinstripe double-breasted suit, a white/brown contrast collar shirt with French cuff, a dark purple silk tie with red/green/white patterns, a white linen pocket square, and a pair of brown cap-toed oxford shoes.
Today I am wearing a mid-gray 2-button full-canvas woolen suit with a ticket pocket, a blue/white check cotton shirt with white collar and cuffs, a silver collar pin, a pink and gray silk tie, a pink linen pocket square, and a pair of black dress-boots.
Today is Thursday and as usual for Thursday’s I am wearing today a combination. Wearing similar outfits again and again becomes very boring and I felt an urge to wear something new, if not entirely new-maybe a new combination. Therefore, today I am wearing a full canvas silk-lined Sports Jacket with a collar tab and a ticket pocket. The trousers are silk-lined white linen Jodhpurs. To complete this equestrian look I thought I gives me a rare opportunity to wear my brown Jodhpur boots. I have hardly seen anyone wearing a tie with Jodhpurs—so I thought let’s do something new not only wear a tie but let’s make the shirt a little bit more interesting. Therefore, I am wearing a purple and white check cotton shirt with white collar and cuffs. This shirt has many more secrets which I will present in future posts. Oh! I forgot to mention the collar is perforated so that I can wear a silver collar pin. I mentioned about the footwear which is a pair of brown Jodhpur boots. I though a white linen pocket square will go nicely with the maroon/black/white silk knit tie. And of course, all the button holes are hand sewn with silk threads.
