Jacket - Banana Republic (!!) linen/cotton blend, thrift $8
Shirt - Tom James Sartoria (don't sleep on this line of TJ, these shirts are amazing), thrift $2.50
Tie - Vintage Brooks Brothers Makers grenadine garza grossa, thrift $2
PS - Hand-rolled cotton, made by my wife
Trous - PRL by Corneliani linen, NWT, thrift $6
Belt - Allen Edmonds NWOT, thrift $2
Shoes - Alden with just a handful of wears before they got to me, thrift $20

Total cost - around $45

So you can see the pattern on the jacket better (bad tie knot, that's a DFOH but it doesn't look it)
