    Casual day at school:

      @andrew - Where's that cardigan from? I'm looking for a spring weight cardigan or two and that one looks like just the right thickness for what I'm looking for.

          @Idle hands, its Uniqlo (as is the t-shirt). Size medium pictured, the material is pretty thin, very nice for this climate--wore no coat or anything today.

            Shomas, that's a great look. Loud but not over the top.
            ThomasR, looks great. And, um, nice jacket... On that note...




            Pants sure do get wrinkly on days when I sit at a desk.

              @BB
              Funny thing is we both got the jacket via eBay.

                Ha, that's funny! I got mine just a couple of months ago, but it was from 2011. Still had tags, but had clearly been worn some. In great shape, sold for $20 or $30 (I forget). I might never buy new clothes again.

                  Wow, great find at $30ish. What size are you? I can't seem to find anything remotely close to that good of a deal in 38R. Given, I've only been at it a month or so, but I'm consistently seeing jackets around the $190 mark or higher with BIN. Disheartening.

                      I'm a 44L, so it's probably much easier to find things for me. But I just kept looking, and after a month or so I found this -- I was the only bidder. It was great.

                        @BB, obviously a big fan of the jacket here as well! Like the tie and shirt combo, good mix of patterns

                          I do a lot of eBay searching for J Crew Ludlow jackets and the deal BB got was exceptional as well as likely aided by his less in-demand size. I wear a 40R in Ludlow and the $100-$150 range is considered a deal relative to the marketplace demand. Keep an eye out for Ludlow jackets that are listed under coats & jackets rather than suits & blazers as those attract less attention due to being listed in the wrong category. For the record, I paid $130 for mine and it was NWOT.

                            Thanks for this LosRockets! So, it looks like I just need to up my ebay skills a bit. The JCF and tweed ludlow are intriguing. Thanks also, TomasR, for the tip about searching outside of the blazer/suit category. I'll be sure to keep that in mind for future hunts.

                              I went back to check, and it was $45. Oops, but still an amazing deal. And I'm outside the standard deviation in terms of size, so there's that, too.
