Jacket: Navy thick wool Pendleton Blazer, thrifted $5
Shirt: Uniqlo (Beijing store) pink OCBD, $15
Tie: Vintage Polo Ralph Lauren Burgundy and Silver Prince of Wales, thrifted $3
Pocket Square: silk scrap from local designer’s atelier’s monthly fabric sale—in a grab bag of scraps ~$1
Sunglasses: American Optical. These are the same as Randolph Engineering, and are made to mil specs too (i.e., pretty indestructible), but can be had for almost half the price. These have RX lenses in them, and are the gold framed ones. I am thinking of buying a pair of the chrome framed ones, with spatula temples and switching the lenses around myself. You can get the frame only online for about $40.
