Worn earlier this week with all the rain we were getting out here in Cali. It has been pretty casual for me this week so this was done really sans a suit. The interesting thing is that this look is mostly vintage inspired. Everything I am wearing save for the shirt and cardigan is vintage in a way. The hat, the trench, shoes and watch were passed down from my dad. He wore them as a younger guy when he was doing his undergrad in England. The trench had to be worked on a little bit (cinch the waist a little, shorten the overall look and taper the sleeves some). The tie was purchased on ebay. The pants are part of a suit that was made for me almost 8 years ago using a vintage cloth. The shoes are over 30 years old. I had to get them stretched.. but I think have aged well. With the cooler temperatures and the layering of the cardigan and the heavier ounce of the pants, it kept me warmer. It was below 50 all that day with winds from the rain so this helped being I had a lot of meetings where I had to park downtown and walk a couple blocks..

Love the look but bruh you need some chap stick for dem lips!
Edit, damn you should play in the NBA
C'mon mayne! You tryna say my lips ashy Bruh? lol..As for the NBA...was not good enough but I played against guys who are in the league if thats any consolation..
It actually is not... the picture does not do it justice due to my hands being in my pocket which unnaturally hikes up the cardigan over my waist and interrupts the natural line of the waist band.
I like everything else but the tie.. I wish the tie were on the casual side like a wool or atleast a wool mix...that looks like silk..Still thumbed because generally it shows that you can wear a S.C/Blazer with a tie and denim... This is the way to do it...
This tie is an odd one. It's actually 80% linen/20% cotton, but it has a sheen almost like silk. It's knitted, so it's probably a bit more casual than it appears in the pics, but since it does give off the impression of silk it's kind of stuck in no man's land. And a tie with denim is totally unnecessary and mostly a misstep, but every now and then I do enjoy a look like this one.
1) What do I do? I'm at work dressed like this, I have plans after work, and I don't have another knit tie to put on.
2) How does it feel now that we're NO LONGER FRIENDS?!
"Brooks was here." But it was a beam not a pipe. Would have been the same result. Everything reminds me of some movie these days.
I like this tie with this, actually. I think it looks very appropriate with jeans, and knits in general are a go-to with jeans, to me.
If I ditched anything, it would be the PS. Squares and jeans look kinda odd to me, though the bandana style here works as well as a square could.
I would also undo my top button and loosen the tie with this, but that's just me.
If you have already hung yourself with said tie please disregard the above.
