The final one looks like something I wouldn't be surprised to see in the covers of "Dressing the man" or similar for clean, smart refinement, very impressive.

Thank you!

Some of us are slow learners and make no progress at all.



Ensemble includes:

Brooks Brothers bowtie (BB-made from English silk, acquired new in college c.1981)
Brooks Brothers chinos (acquired new in high school, c.1979)
Coach belt (acquired new in college c.1982, a real luxury back then)

Very impressive that you can still fit into high school pants.

my goodness Vox, for a 30 year old pair of pants they look brand new!

Damn how can cotton chinos worn since 1979 still exist?

And I never even heard of Coach before 1990.

I had a whole bunch of them...this is the last pair that are left, and it is almost ready to depart the Earth, sadly. I wear them seldom for that reason. Blown threads everywhere.

This was back when Coach was transitioning from a small, NYC maker of fine leather goods into national distribution. Check out what is stamped on the back of the belt:



I remember an earlier stamp that said "Manhattan" rather than just "New York City." Anyway, sic transit gloria.

You've actually devolved. I suspect you probably had some respectable, American-made boat shoes back then that actually looked good with the outfit, as opposed to those John Lobb abortions.

Yep, would have been Sperrys or LLB blucher mocs.

The Lobbs are kinda like a combo of the two.

I still have my last pair of made in Maine Weejuns, though:
