The white-pants-and-blazer combo is a classic one that dates back to the invention of sportcoats and odd jackets in the 1920s, when men wore their navy suit jackets with white tennis or cricket flannels for sporting pursuits. ¬†And Ralph Lauren has picked it up in the new uniforms he’s designed for the US Olympic Team.

Blazer: Schupp & Snyder, thrifted, $12
Pants: Express, discount store, $15
Shirt: Brooks Brothers, thrifted, $5
Tie:  Neiman Marcus, bought secondhand online, $10
Shoes: Alfred Sargent for Brooks Brothers, clearance, $180
Total: $227
If I’d paid retail prices: $1300 or more
