Today I am wearing a woolen full-canvas blue check handmade wide-lapel double breasted 100% silk lined suit with black Corozo buttons, a white cotton shirt with perforated collar and a silver collar pin, a maroon silk tie with white paisley motifs, a maroon and blue printed silk pocket square, and a pair of black cap-toed oxford shoes. No change in watch.
Suddenly I realized that the way I dress has become very predictable: suits first four days of the week and a jacket/trousers combination for Thursday. I need to break this monotony. Therefore today instead of wearing a suit I chose to wear a jacket/trousers combination. It seems that for some reason I love my new jacket with a shirt-sleeve shoulder. The lightly-padded wool check in brown and beige is handmade, full canvas, 100% silk lined, and all the button holes are hand-sewn. The lapel is also a bit wider than usual. I have paired the jacket with a brown PoW check woolen trousers with 100% silk lining. I chose to wear a light pink shirt with French cuffs with the jacket/trousers combination. I thought a red silk knit tie with small white dots will go nicely with the ensemble. A pink/white check linen pocket square and a brown Tussle Loafer completes today’s attire. I did not change the watch, i.e., it’s the same Movado I wore yesterday.
Today I am wearing a full canvas hand-made woolen hounds-tooth wide- peak- lapel one-button suit, a blue/white striped Winchester shirt, a blue silk tie with red heraldic-lion motifs, a maroon silk pocket square, and a pair of black dress boots. Today I am also wearing a vintage Movado Automatic watch in stainless steel.
Thursday is back and I am wearing today a Jacket/trousers combination.

Some additional notes about the jacket are necessary. Like all my recent jackets, this also has pure silk lining. In my experience Silk undoubtedly provides the most comfortable wear experience when compared with rayon acetate or Bemberg . Silk is also much lighter. You will also notice the jacket shoulders are slightly padded giving a natural shoulder and I am sure you have also noticed the pleat-like dimples at the base of the sleeves. All the button holes are, of course, hand sewn with pure silk threads. I will not get into additional technical details of this jacket’s construction.
