Variation on a theme


I am once again wearing this checkered shirt and vest as a pair, but instead of putting them together as I did before in a blue and red palette (not to mention with longer hair), I have used brown as accents.

What I particularly like about this is that I am not only able to join patterns (stripes and checks), but I am also able to wear one of my favorite color combinations: blue and brown.


Had lunch today at Tokyo Metro, along Valero Street, and took advantage of the striped red wall for a neat picture. Makes me yearn for buffalo plaid.


The watch is also different this time — the gold Omega instead of the steel Tissot. But who cares about the time when one is having fun?

Shirt, vest, tie: all thrifted; pants, Zara; belt, from a market in Italy; laceups, Marlboro Classics; watch, vintage Omega Seamster
