        New years Eve. Not many other opportunities to wear a burgundy velvet blazer.

          @mjs - I'm not sure what others will say, but I love the red velvet jacket! It's perfect for wintry parties.

              love the jacket. Of course, when I posted the exact same outfit, people bashed me for it. Go figure.

                For the New Year I figured it would be interesting to look at how much money is spent on a fit considering this is an affordable men's clothing forum.

                Guess Jacket: $7
                "NICE" Henley Sweater: $2.50
                LEC Jeans: $12
                Scarf: $2
                Ben Sherman Chukkas: $3.50

                WIWT: $27
                Mind sharing how you were able to get the items at such low prices?

                      As Jake says, they are just some items I picked while I was thrifting with the exception of the LEC jeans which were actually 12 dollars brand new once: http://dappered.com/2011/07/lands-en...a-20-off-sale/

                          JoshuaNY, The weather here is 40-60 degrees year-round. It never reaches a warm temperature.

                            Agreed... I have a hard time layering under a jacket. Even when it's -20 outside, it's still 70 degrees (or warmer) indoors and I overheat very quickly.

                              Having lived in Texas my whole life, I'm more accustomed to being warm than cold. Perhaps I just don't over heat as easilly as others do. They also seem to keep my office pretty cold. I wear sweaters (or at least sweater vests) under sport coats through most of the winter. When it's 40 degres outside, it's not uncommon for me to be wearing 5 layers on top.

                                I wear sweaters under sportcoats in the coller months, but I rarely keep the jacket on inside.
