I updated/simplified my list somewhat:

Ironheart 634S

Flat Head 3005:

Earnest Sewn Fulton 55C

1 pair olive moleskin flat front trousers. Preferably jean-cut.

Trim-cut flat front khakis

Vintage Belstaff Trialmaster

Easily found on ebay

Aero Hercules in brown horsehide

The best cotton field jacket I could find, preferably in tan or dark blue, similar to:

Buzz Rickson chambray work shirt x 2

Sugar Cane denim work shirt

Safari style shirts in tan and white, like so:

American Apparel t-shirts in black,dark blue,brown,army,olive and heather grey

Henleys in the same colors

Medium grey ribbed wool shallow v-neck sweater with plain (not banded) bottom and cuffs

JB Hill shell cordovan cowboy boots:

Or on a budget, Lucchese Classic's:

Frye Brando Lace in black

And I'd have another pair of brown Vass brown Budapest boots made up:

Purcells in white:

Chucks in black and brown monotone

The best B-Uhr style watch I could afford:

Glycine Incursore

Mosley Tribes Enforcer Aviators in gold with tan lense and silver/midnight

Flat Head silver key hook

I'd have Unlucky make me up a wallet and some double thick horsehide belts:

Medium grey cashmere beanie

That would cover all the bases, and well, for under $6000 mostly at retail.

-  1 or 2 pairs of wool pants (jil sander)

-  1 suit (bb black fleece)

-  1 blazer  (navy)

-  3 pairs of casual leather dress shoes (trickers, alden, carmina)

-  2 pairs of sneakers (vans converse - white, black)

-  3 or 4 dress shirts  (slim fitting - white and sky blue)
