John from Reading sent us this picture of an outfit he wore to work the other day. In many ways, it’s a pretty quiet, straightforward work outfit, but John was proud to point out that he’d spent only $150 or so on the whole ensemble, soup to nuts.
Here’s his breakdown:
Jacket - Lands End Overstock - $500 down to $80
Shirt - Gitman Brothers - Thrift Store - $3
Trousers - Bills Khakis - Warehouse sale - $20 (I live in Reading PA)
Belt - Brooks Brothers - Salvation Army Family Store - $1
Shoes - Cole Haan - $200 down to $50
Socks - Gold Toe - Clearance bin - $3
Tie - 100% Silk, made in USA, UPenn store - Flea Market in a retirement home - 25 cents
Silk Pocket Square - Yard Sale - 50 cents
That’s something we can get behind.
