The "look" for Easter Monday.
My love for tweed and wool sports jackets in bold houndstooths, herringbones, and tartans notwithstanding, sometimes it's nice to throw colleagues and students a curveball and wear something more austere once in a while. And so it as with today's ensemble, which included:
Wool Flannel Pants by Corbin -- $3.99 (Thrifted)
Navy Wool 'University Club' Blazer by Polo -- $7.99 (Thrifted)
Wool Necktie -- $1.99 (Thrifted)
Silk Pocket Square -- $1.99 (Thrifted)Shoes, Belt, and Shirt -- Purchased On Sale at Different Times in 2010.
Socks -- Purchased On Sale September 2004.
I was particularly taken with the unintended matching of the green socks with the tiny green flecks at the center of the gray floral designs on the tie. A nice surprise when I realized it later. In any case, it's just one more example of how average guys can put together an above average ensemble for pennies on the dollar.
