    I've never done one of these before. I thought I'd give it a try. I am trying to heavily make use of thrifted items these days. My wardrobe is humble.



    Sport coat - Zenga cashmere - thrifted for $7.

    Shirt - CT - thrifted for $4

    Pants - BR chinos - thrifted $4

    Watch - given to me by wife (then fiancée) probably 15 years ago. It's my only "nice" watch

    Shoes - beater Florsheims. I think I got these back in 2000 around when I graduated law school.

      [MENTION=12061]Jshackleford[/MENTION], nice sweater. I've been looking for something similar to that in navy wool, but no luck.
      [MENTION=12319]Wahoo1997[/MENTION], that sportcoat looks very nice, from what I can see of it.

        Thanks! It's the italian wool one from this year, I picked it up pretty cheap on Black Friday. There's the navy lambs wool from JC also, and I have a donegal one from JCF in navy?

          These were from a couple days ago, but they were kind of a repeat of my original post -- different colors in most cases, but the same general stuff. I also decided to show my face just this once (pardon the zits).

          J. Crew Secret Wash button-down (you can't see it very well; the previous photo was blue gingham, while that day's photo was blue and tan tattersall -- or something similar to it)

            One more . . . this was from yesterday:





            Brooks Brothers flannel shirt
            Levi's 505 jeans
            Dickies belt
            Woolrich hiking socks
            Sebago Campsides

            Here's a little bit more of the socks:



            That's just Part 1, though. Stay tuned for Part 2!

              Time for Part 2!

              Later that day, a new package arrived -- 3 pairs of J. Crew camp socks. So I swapped out the Woolrich's with one of the J. Crew's:

              Sock by itself:



              With Sebagos:



              As you've probably already figured out by now, my Sebago Campsides are my one of my favorite things to wear with jeans, second only to cowboy boots.

                  Been a while since I posted here. Fairly conservative business attire after a very long day:



                  Suit: Benjamin
                  Shirt: CT
                  Tie: Sam Hober
                  Shoes: Meermin
                  PS: TTB
                  and no pic taken in my household is complete without a random toy: Winnie the Pooh rattle

                    [MENTION=12684]Creature[/MENTION], looks good, I like the sweater. I like the pea coat too, but mine JC Dock pea coat is longer in length. I'm not sure if the longer length is better or the standard shorter length.
                    [MENTION=8057]Jamie[/MENTION], the suit looks great, but the tie makes it look very (very) formal.

                      The coat is a 40R. I usually wear a 42L. My tailor let the sleeves out all the way on it,. made them just the right length. I wanted it to be a bit longer, tried it over a sportcoat but it didn't cover the sc completely. I had my eye on the mossy green JC coat, but this one only cost me the tailoring fee! It's growing on me.

                        The sleeves look just right. I guess the coat length is just a matter of personal preference, but it sounds like you got a great deal.

                          I'd agree with that. In real life the tie has more of a bluish teal cast (its technically Sam Hober's sky blue - silver grenadine), its not captured well in my picture or on their website, but I think its a little less monochromatic in person:


                          But this would be a good wedding ensemble. I typically go with a darker tie with this suit (which is actually a mid-grey rather than the charcoal it appears in my pics), but thought I'd give this a try. I think this tie pairs nicely with a navy suit too.

                            That's exactly what I was thinking. The tie looks silver in the pictures and looks like it would be a great wedding tie. I would just be careful about wearing it during a regular business day.
