This outfit is a good wrap-up to my thrifters manifesto. It’s one of those outfits that’s really an amalgam of my personality, the blogosphere, the thrift store and tailoring schools.
The whole look is very bloggy. (DB, Italian style loafers)
The items are all thrifted, but represent very different schools of style. The jacket is a Lanvin, a French company, made in USA in a more American (vs. Italian or French) style. The loafers are vintage Johnson & Murphy, made in Italy, again a storied shoemaker in their time in a classic, but not necessarily standard style.
The tie is Brooks Bros. Makers in a wonderfully rich and vibrant orange, with a twill sort of pattern woven in.
The pants and shirt are Banana Republic and Stafford respectively, nothing great, but they fit and are lightweight (A bit too lightweight as the wind caused them to flap around like nobody’s business) for a warm day.
All thrifted, all put together in a way that speaks to me, but also incorporates some trending items in a natural way.
The thrift store is listening, do you know what you want to say?
