Thrifted style.

Just tore my pants on a file cabinet door! Unhappy.

Vintage Fallan & Harvey SC, Belisario MTM shirt, Riccardo Piacenza cashmere tie, Amanda Christensen wool challis PS, Charles Tyrwhitt Donegal trousers, Tricker’s Kensington

This is fantastic.

As I tied my tie this morning I was reminded of a conversation I had with my mother in law a few months ago. She had asked me to take my father in law shopping for suits and accessories and I was asking what it was she felt he needed. I suggested getting one or two brown ties for his navy suit and she looked at me aghast. Brown and blue!!!!

My in-laws are staying with us right now, so she will see this outfit when I get home. Hopefully her concerns will be allayed.

Bat mitzvah ready.

Along with the previously posted grenadines, my birthday treats included all the above. Drakes wool/silk dog squares in green and blue and a fantastic homemade apple pie. Thankfully it was spared all the candles.

Grenadines for my birthday!
Silver looks fina not grossa, though :/

Wearing a tie noticeably lighter than one’s jacket is the challenge this week. This is harder than one may imagine, because the challenge is to look good doing it. If the weather were warmer I would feel more comfortable breaking out some of the madras, but it isnt, so here’s one attempt. Not sure if it will be my entry yet.

Whatever happened to AcridSheep? ‘They’ say that SFs WAYWRN thread is a brutal place, but with patrickBOOTH suddenly being nice and people like Acrid no longer posting, it’s quite a welcoming place, relatively speaking. 
Beyond his biting commentary, however, Acrids presence on SF was marked with wonderful graphics like the above, which reminds us that sartorial wisdom coupled with personal happiness will undoubtedly end in a lonely one bedroom apartment and crippling alimony payments.

I’m hoping that we are finally making our way into spring. At least it is bright and sunny.
