Went thrifting with the wife today. Turned down a Canali dress shirt (!) and two Brooks Brothers, plus a pile of other shirts and pants. Did manage to snag a plain navy polo that fits pretty darn well, though, which I've been looking for.

I found one of these (charcoal, made of felt) at a garage sale for a dollar today. My instinct is that it's not something that I'll actually be able to use for any sort of formal occasion, particularly since it's a bit too small to come all the way down on my head without being tilted back, but it was well worth it just for the novelty value of owning a classy (?) and expensive hat.

Paul Grangaard, the CEO of Allen Edmonds (High quality US-made shoes), is doing an AMA on reddit right now. Highly recommended.

The irony(?) of using that gif to talk about how awesome something made in England is. x.x

But srsly, nice suit.

I stopped by the thrift store today, and managed to find a nice gray tweed herringbone jacket. Yet another reason to look forward to the fall.

If you live in the US, are interested in #menswear, and are trying to find a good place to buy affordable basics, you need to know that Uniqlo announced it is opening an e-commerce site this fall.

To which I say;

Bump

I have another job interview Thursday and my old "dress" shoes are falling apart (very cheap imitation leather anyway) I bought new shoes.

Image
These are real leather and seem a lot sturdier than my old ones.

My question now is: How should I lace them?
I normally use the standard criss-cross

However, some people seem to suggest the straight bar lacing


Also, since we've discussed this, but haven't had any pictures: this is basting thread holding a pocket closed on a new suit(yeah, turns out I missed the breast pocket somehow)

Dress shoes, generally straight-bar lacing, but with open-laced derbies like that, I'd use criss-cross, since the quarters are so very apart, the messiness that's underneath the straight bar lacing will be showing.
