Good deals can be found outside of the thrift shop as well…
Shirt: Uniqlo OCBD (older model), sale $19.90
Sweater: J. Crew Lambswool Fair Isle, clearance ~$40
Scarf: Moon of England Limited Edition Cashmere Houndstooth Scarf, STP ~$30 (these are not as nice, in my opinion, as the Johnston’s of Elgin ones often available at STP for about the same price)
Vest: Lands’ End Wool Blend Down Vest, clearance $50
I’ve been wanting this Fair Isle sweater from J. Crew since it was available in a slightly different colorway last winter. Unfortunately, the retail price of $118 was a little too high to justify in my book for a decent-but-not-great lambswool sweater from the Crew (the Lands’ End ‘first clip’ lambswool sweaters are of much better quality in my opinion). The other day, however, it was an additional 40% off $69, so I jumped. Can’t say that I’m disappointed.
I accidentally missed a belt loop (good eye maxminimus). I guess that’s some authentic and unforced sprezzatura, or something.
