    Looks good BB. I think you should add more pocket squares to your daily wear. You wear blazers quite often and definitely think it would add an even more dapper look.

      @JonATL the way your tie is pinched and folded would drive myself absolutely nuts, I usually end up tying them a few times though I'm a dimple lover heh Interesting pattern, what the heck is it?


        Ha! I was in a hurry this morning. I probably should take more time with these things.


          @BB and jonATL: Both of you. Good looks, and way to make use of thrifted stuff! You two put me to shame. :-)


            Thanks for the feedback guys -- SDot, I like pocket squares, but I feel like I'd get labeled a dandy if I wore them around work. I've actually showed up with them in my blazer and then taken them out before I saw anyone. I need to just own it, but I know some folks will think I'm taking myself too seriously.

            jonATL, great finds. You get the good stuff and I get the semi-decent stuff at the same thrift stores, I think. I haven't been able to thrift as much lately, but this summer and early fall I was going a couple of times each week around ATL.

                  Saleen: Nice suit. But if you really, really like wearing it and this is going to be your suit, I'd take it to a tailor to see what he thinks about the fit. The sleeves could be shortened a bit, and I don't know if this is how you were standing, but it looks like it's pulling quite a bit.

                  What size are you?

                  BB: I'm at thrift stores OTP daily, and I hit my intown usuals probably twice a week. There are many, many days when I come home empty-handed, though (which makes my wife happy). But I'm starting a new job in two weeks, and I'll be working from home (Highlands), so no more Roswell thrifting for me.


                    jonATL, I'm ITP, and I usually hit the same three or four places; things come in bundles of similar sizes and labels -- for example, I scored big when someone of my general size donated a ton of Lauren Ralph Lauren stuff this summer (not the best quality, I know, but it actually is rather nice stuff). But I haven't been for a month or so now, and probably won't go again before Christmas.


                      mr mr, I like the look in general, but the colors are hard to interpret with the lighting.


                        dark blue jeans, pink oxford, light gray sweater. shoes/belt/watch band are all dark brown.

                        i too am in atlanta. only thrift store i've checked out is the g-tech salvation army. had some success there with ties and shirts. nonexistent blazer/jacket/suit selection.

                            hard to tell the fabrics from the pics but im curious about that shirt/bowtie combo. shirt seems awfully lightweight for the wool bowtie.

                              It's a light shirt, but also a light bowtie. Yeah, the picture sucks. Even though it's wool, it's not heavy. It matched the weight of the suit. I chose it because I didn't want a sheen.


                                Loving the bowtie fit Alan!

                                First day at the new second job! Snapped this quick at the end of the day. Taking a page out of JC's old book with bathroom pics!!!!!!
                                Dont mind the wrinkles, its from the days work. I also wore the BR bridgecoat over it and got a ton of compliments. Not pictured also were brown burnished strands.
