Usually my style revolves around a generally “more is more” ethos, rather than focusing on one color, or working specifically with a set of patterns or textures (though I do that sometimes).
But I got these gray flannels last weekend and they have such a beautiful green cast to them (that my pictures really don’t do justice) so I decided to play that up. Dark green shirt with pale green sweater with a gray wool tie that has a slightly more teal green cast than my the olive cast of the trousers. Flourish was provided by some gray sunglasses and blue and yellow in the socks and watch to provide complimentary colors on both sides of the color wheel.
Also of note, the scarf (again rendered in green & blue) sans jacket. I think on days like this where it’s 60/65 degrees during the day and then dips down at night. A scarf can be a great substitute for a jacket. It’s easier to put away when it’s warm and pull out again when it gets cool.
Also, I think a haphazardly wrapped scarf is a very “dashing” look that often gets overlooked in favor of the more “elegant” scarf tucked neatly into an overcoat. But that might just be me.
Going to go hit up the thrift circuit. Overdressed as per usual. See if you can spot the sprezz.
I’ve been waiting to bust out these red suede shoes again. Sun seemed like the time to do it. Tie tack by Ashley. Cotton Knit Tie, Selvage Denim and Clubmaster knockoffs by goodwill. Military Clasp belt by the military (?). Red Suede shoes by whogivesafuckthey’reawesome!
EDIT: Got rid of the captions on the pics. You couldn’t even see the shoes!
Rayban Clubmaster Goodwill knockoff sunglasses.
Purchased at the Mill Creek Plaza Goodwill, South Portland ME. Replaced another pair that I found was missing a screw. Clubmaster’s are $145 on the ray-ban website, these were $2.98 (plus 10% off cause I have a goodwill card).
