    Wow, this thread blew up. Nice work, everybody. Focuspants, I love the jacket. Andrewski, looking sharp. I like the bridge coat. I'm going to dig through the last week.

      @Andrewski, How are you liking the coat? I just ordered mine. Excited about it.

        Not really a WIWT, more of a WIWY, but...


        I ended up buying a pair of cords at Bananna Republic to solve my pant problem. I ended up liking them a surprising amount and think they'll work their way into my regular pant rotation.


        The colors are a little off in the photo (the shirt is a dark blue houndstooth) and the pants are a woody brown - but I was pretty happy with the fit!

            Love the belt buckle as usual. And the shoes are one amazing thrift find: they're gorgeous.

              Casual Friday (no class... after a morning bike ride, I've spent most of the day inside studying oil and gas law x_x).

                @BenR: could be worse, spending the day inside studying cardiovascular physiology and respiratory histology. That's a great looking henley. Got a link? I'd like to start posting pics here but I don't have a tripod or anything.

                  @ LosRockets - I bought mine on clearance, in-store a year or so ago. This looks to be the same thing, but the "classic fit" description is a little worrisome. Mine has a pretty tailored fit to it.


                  FWIW, I own a tripod but I almost never use it (or my real camera, for that matter) for these WRUW pics. Normally I just do the classic bathroom smartphone pic (see above). In this case, I used my phone camera with a free timer app and propped it on the grill in the backyard. Nothing too fancy in terms of setup.

                    BenR which br blazer is that? It looks amazing.

                      @ nftmlk - It's a grey tweed herringbone I picked up about 3 years ago. One of my first "grown-up," post-college clothing purchases and still a favorite. That's the OTR fit, minus the sleeves which I had shortened.


                      This one isn't exactly the same, but pretty close. The J.Crew Factory tweed blazer looks pretty similar, too (minus the herringbone pattern).

                        A few hours later and the knit tie knot is still holding up. Knit ties are a pain to tie, fyi.

                          @bruschetta: Really digging that top outfit. It's pretty run of the mill, I know, but I'm a big fan of the color palette and imo the best application of a brown cord sportcoat is a deep green sweater underneath. If I walked past, I'd definitely find an excuse to look twice. Do you happen to remember where you picked up the sweater? I have a one in a similar shade of green but it has an annoying trim on the neck and sleeves, and I'd like to pick up something more "basic" if I could.

                            pitseleh, The sweater is from Uniqlo: http://shop.uniqlo.com/uk/goods/072742 The model is 072742 and the colour is 58. Joe actually featured the sweater in today's Dappered.com post. Here's a link to the US Uniqlo store product page.

                              haha, man... I just ordered one of those crewnecks in green and honestly never would've known it was yours from the image on their website. I should listen to my own advice about not buying into presentation! thanks a lot; good to know I'll be keeping at least one thing from the order.

                                Hey guys,


                                I'm new to the forum. Can someone quickly explain how I can post pics? Sorry, I tried to search the terms and didn't come up with anything.


                                Thanks
