I had a short visit to my university on Friday. Didn’t feel like putting anything too fancy on me, so I decided to go with a basic odd jacket-casual tie-jeans-casual derbies look.
Could’ve used a more casual shirt, but I suppose this one still works here. The tie is an unlined wool tie with a very sort of shabby and rough texture - perfect for this time of the year. Pocket square is a wool silk blend with navy dots.
Jeans are a bit older with a nice darker shade of blue. Shoes are John Lobbs, a pair that has seen a lot. I’ve used them to climb some cliffs in Grand Canyon, defeat the rain in Scotland and they’ve also stepped on some fish eyes in Shanghai. Still going strong though, with only a few battle scars to show.
Tomorrow I will post the most important post so far, concerning the king of tie knots - the mighty four in hand. Check back on Sunday!
