Yes, if its not the most hideous thing in the world you should make a profit on eBay.
Ill throw up a pic later and let SF be the judge. Its pretty bad.
I see your thrift fit and your knit tie and raise you. This outfit started very fall-y: sage green tie, navy cashmere SC, brownish paisley square, mid-brown trou. Then I realized: a) 78 degrees means nothing when it's 40000% humidity; and b) I'm in utter denial that it's no longer summer. Hence, this:
Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
Blazer: Canali, traded with a dude here Square: Handmade (by me) from a thrifted Vineyard Vines shirt that was uber monogrammed and I failed to notice Tie: no-name wool blend knit, "thrifted" from a family member's closet. Shirt: Not thrifted. Trou: Vineyard Vines, thrifted by me Shoes: AE Coppel, traded with a dude here.
I think that looks great, TAFKA MikeH, a nice Fall (or pre-Fall) look. I love the versatility of the knit tie, especailly in this casual Fridays world we live in. Last time a wore a knit tie (a few weeks ago) some guy commented on how much he loved wearing those in the 80's. Whatever, I'll take it.
It's not like they're unstylish: Look at WAYWRN. They're pretty standard.
I had a co-worker comment that he'd never seen a knit tie before last winter, so I gave him one for Christmas.
Knit (assuming silk) ties with stains on them are basically fucked right? Saw a sweet kelly green one at a store and decided against picking it up figuring it was done for.
Me too, and I have an Isaia suit that I could trade you...
What say y'all about olive / army green knit ties. I've got one with a pointed end that I'm thinking I need to unleash.
Yeah, I grabbed the first half way tweedy day I could to bust it out. High today in beer town is only supposed to hit 73. GMMcL, I love the trou - might have to go Nantucket Reds next week one day (not thrifted - bought them myself at Murrays). Students will almost certainly comment on that though! Very cool self made square. I should probably learn to do that.
The one I had for today was on the border between olive and sage. So I say you can easily rock it with a nice tweed, flannel navy with a pattern shirt and many, many other combos.
For all you guys that like the eBay sellers who pose in what they're selling, wearing only that item and no shirt or pants, here's a new one for you.
Plastic torsos be damned, THAT is how you make money
Definitely get that dry cleaned if you buy it
