The really cheap early spring outfit
I think most of us had a time in their life when money was scarce. Mine was when I was a student and before I got my first real job. I learned to get the most out of what I had. Ebay, thrift stores and sales could keep me looking decent on a tight budget. I am kinda proud of this, that I learned to get by on small means. Even though I can afford more expensive stuff today, my brain is hardwired in such a way that I’m still looking for great deals. 
I know that some of you guys are in the same place I was when being a student, and for you I have compiled an outfit that will keep you looking good on a very tight budget. I know you can probably find even cheaper stuff if you thrift, but that’s not for everyone, so I only listed NWT (new with tags) stuff.
Military jacket/blazer – eBay $35

Jeans – Wednesday by Weekday $62
Suede long wing brogues – Meermin $135 (starting bid)
Pin point button down shirt – TM Lewin $50
Sun glasses – no name $21
Socks – Charles Tyrwhitt $12

All-in-all: $315

Friday Challenge - The Green Tie

This week’s Friday challenge on Styleforum was hosted by me. The challenge: Compose a great outfit involving a green tie.

Why?

Green is, alongside brown, my favourite colour for ties.

I’m not going to elaborate, but simply let these random pics from the challenge speak for themselves:

Timotune

Hardly, hahaha. We need to savour this moment.
