Fall is coming quickly, and (slightly) cooler temperatures this week have me all anticipation for tweeds, flannels, suede, and the other wonderful textures of fall clothing. I often jump the gun with cooler-weather clothing and end up suffering in late summer/early fall’s continued heat.  I’m trying to hold off on that this year, but I couldn’t resist a nod to autumnal style with a brown tie and suede shoes yesterday.


Suit: Samuelsohn, thrifted, $20
Shirt: Luciano Barbera, bought secondhand online, $22
Tie: Brooks Brothers, outlet, $13
Shoes: Alfred Sargent for Brooks Brothers/Peal & Co., clearance, $180
Tailoring: $80

Total: $315
At retail prices: At least $1500

    We really need to get you to cut open your suit jacket pockets and stuff those silly flaps in.
    That said, you are amazingly consistent with your suit fit. Bravo, I could look at you in a different suit every day if possible, you wear them remarkably well.

    Very smart suede shoes! I like your thinking…spend the money where it counts (a great pair of shoes) and save on things that are a bit easier to come by…second hand suits, and/or sale items.

    I have been wanting some suede wingtips for the Fall to wear with my corduroys and my woolen trousers.

    Do you have any suggestions on brands, etc.?
