Though I’m no fan of USC (Go Bears!), I am a fan of this Ben Silver tie I thrifted. It’s been buried under my many other ties for a couple of years now, but I’m hoping to wear it more soon.

I hit up a local Goodwill this weekend and picked up this BB tie which was NWT. Interestingly, I own its matching number in a dusky olive—also purchased at a thrift NWT. Apparently this was an unpopular gift that season…

Jacket: Southwick for Cable Car Clothiers, thrifted $10 + altered $50. 
I’ve written about this jacket before here. When I bought it, it fit perfectly in the shoulders and arms, but was gigantic in the waist. I loved the colors in the tweed herringbone so much, and since it was a high quality piece, I paid to have it altered. It now fits loosely and casually, and is perfect for layering over a sweater on a chilly fall day.
