Some say a tie is never appropriate without a sport coat or suit…I disagree.
Jacket: Nordstrom Harrington Jacket (super-nice jacket, silk bemberg lining in sleeves, horn buttons, etc.), thrifted $7
Shirt: Polo Ralph Lauren OCBD, thrifted $5
Sweater: Banana Republic merino v-neck, $20
Jeans: Pure Blue Japan XX-005 tapered to an 8” opening, Superfuture B+S
Shoes: Converse Jack Purcell, recycled clothing store NWOT $17
Boot: Red Wing Chukka, bought NWOT at used clothing store $36
Jeans: Dope and Drakkar, bought at another branch of the above-mentioned store $25. This day was crazy. I found a bunch of Japanese denim in my size for $25 a pop. I find it hard to believe that someone who paid $200-300 for jeans that were still like new would sell them to a shop for about $15 a pop cash, a little more in trade. Oh well, I wasn’t complaining. Got some Full Count, RRL, Sugar Cane, Dope and Drakkar, and Warehouse jeans that day. Sold all the others, gave a pair to a friend, and kept these here. I kinda’ think some dude got robbed, and then someone sold his jeans.
Shirt: Lands’ End Canvas chambray ‘work’ shirt, thrifted $5
Tie: Lands’ End Canvas, on clearance for maybe ~$7
