    Found this wool tie for $2.17 while thrifting. Couldn't help liking it, but not sure how to wear it. Its blue bordering on gray, depending on the light. Suggestions?

        Picked up a Ludlow herringbone tweed blazer the other day. 25% off... but still way overpriced. I do love it though. Fits perfectly. http://www.jcrew.com/mens_category/s...3445/93445.jsp

          I'm a fan!

            I ordered this at the beginning of the insider sale and I found it on my doorstep right after coming home from seeing Skyfall.

            I also got this with the last of my store credit http://www.bonobos.com/navy-shawl-cardigan-ahab when they had the sweater code.

              how is that bonobos cardigan, ravi? any chance we could get a fit pic? i'm seriously considering ordering it (i'm still on the hunt for the perfect shawl collar cardigan, as discussed here: http://threads.dappered.com/showthre...hawl-cardigan/ .)

                Sure, I'll post a picture tomorrow. It's a nice sweater. It's heavier than you'd expect and it's pretty thick for a cotton cardigan, but it won't be enough on its own if you live somewhere cold. I live in California so it's been great for me so far. The Bonobos sweaters run big for me, so I have to size down. My biggest (and only) complaint so far is that the buttons are also not very well sewn on, because the top one has fallen off and another is about to, but that's something that can be fixed pretty easily. I like the elbow patches a lot. They're navy so you wouldn't notice them right away, but it's like inconspicuous cushioning for your elbows when you're at a desk. I also really like the knit.

                  Wear it with a plain light blue or white shirt. Wear it with grey/navy/brown wool trousers. Same with the sport coat. Dont have to get all fancy with it. I love wool ties.

                    For reference, I'm 5'7" and 145 lbs and I wear a 38S. This cardigan is size XS. As I said before, the top button came off and I haven't yet had a chance to put it back on.

                      Would throw it in the wash & low tumble dry once to shrink slightly. Then i'd say you're good to go. Nice!

                        Thanks for the feedback. I'll give it a shot.

                                Thanks for posting these pictures, ravi - the cardigan looks great and I think I might just order one myself. The sizing tips are especially helpful, as I'll probably have to size down to an XS too!
