Greeting and salutations good people and welcome to Waistcoat Wednesday.
Today I bring you something a little different…though I admit contains a lot of the usual suspects!
Today I am taking the focus off the waistcoats and putting it onto the unsung star of the waistcoat, the pocket watch. I love pocket watches and it’s pretty much the only kind I wear these days since I got my new adored one.
I think a pocket watch just sets off the whole look perfectly and I really like it when someone takes the trouble to wear one. Waistcoats without pockets, or fake pockets upset me hugely as it leaves no place to wear the pocket watch. But happily a fob watch is just as happy popped into a pocket of a pair of jeans.
I’ve tried to include in these pics a couple of different ways of wearing pocket watches on waistcoats. Some have the chain linked across both front panels of the waistcoat; some have the chain doubled, so it goes from the watch to the button and back again; and some have it as a single chain going from the watch to the pocket. Personally, I either link the chain across both panels or just have a single chain.
***edit*** If anyone can let me know how to make the botton two pics a wee bit smaller so they are easier to see I'd happily take suggestions!( So then...pics... )
So the usual then. I’d love you to share pics of your pocket watches, any of you that have them, or any pics that you find of pretties with pocket watches.
