I think it's great SW&D fit, but what do I know, I am old! :-) SWD in my time was a faded 501, chucks, black no name tshirt, and leather/jean/canvas belt level jacket.
Also a good demo of thrifting for yourself and as a sport, and not for sole purpose of flipping and not being a brand ho. Easy uses a lot of brands but he is a good example too. I realize my approval is not needed tho I approve.
We are at 2 bucks. Week to go. Don't be shy, folks.

Not sure what the protocol for critique is here, but don't spend another dollar on that jacket. The lapels are super dated and it's not a good look.

Damn.  I was trying to get in under the wire with this monstrosity I just found in my closet, and forgot I still had all the pieces of.  Oh well... here it is for shits and giggles anyway:

 

 

The whole suit was $10.  I actually bought it solely for the vest, which I wanted for a pirate costume.  I still wear the pirate costume on occasion.  And, I just want to say publically, those pants are a 28, and I got them done up.  I'm pretty proud of that.  Shirt and tie are thrift finds from this week.

I don't find the lapels dated at all.  I like it.  I wouldn't go with a solid navy tie again, though.  I have some nice new thrifted ones that are burgundy with blue patterns, and vice versa, including this Brooks Bros one:

 

 

The suit I bought on sale with a $500 gift certificate I won, so it was $60.  Does that count as thrift?

Not good lighting but I personally liked it. I have no 3 pieces. Every one I found is always few sizes small .

BTW Fit thread goes on, just the charity challenge is over. Just so there is no misunderstanding .

Well, as you can see, that brown one is too small, though it fit when I bought it.  And it has some mild bell bottoms.  And, yeah, wife wasn't home to take a good picture, and I really can't seem to take good pics with my phone indoors, ever.
