    Diggin’ the seersucker! Though I am quite surprised at what you paid for the shoes. Quite a splurge, for a thrifty gent anyway.

    • Jeff says:

      Thanks, Megan! Yes, the shoes were something of a splurge, but they were entirely paid for by the proceeds from selling thrifted clothes, so I still consider them in the thrifty gent’s ballpark.

    Love the tie. And the shoes are cordovan, yes?
