Last week, Jeff brought us a few prime snapshots of some of the more eye-catching ensembles in Columbia, Mo. Here now are a few more noteworthy blips on the radar…just to provide a little inspiration should you find yourself at a thrift store—or even for those spring sales when winter and fall wear is steeply discounted.
Because, you know, one of the tricks to building an affordable wardrobe is to think ahead. Knock ya-self out.
Wool pea coat with naval overtones. If it conjures seafaring imagery, sign me up.
This is what an old favorite looks like. Buy one of these waxed Barbour Bedale jackets when, and you could be buried in it when you’re old.
Here’s David Wilson, one of the founders of True/False. He’s a guy with immense personal style. And his clothes ain’t bad, either. Dressing it down (and doing work) in this shot.
Blanket-lined chore coat from Sears. With the tucked scarf. Rural class.
The definition of affordable sharpness. Most of this came from the thrift store, but simple attention to fit makes all the difference in the world. Can’t get over the texture and weave on that blazer. (On Tyler Koch).
Layering done right. And that Levi’s jean jacket is prime for spring. Nailed it, David Hall.
The Steven Alan Parka: How about that burst of color? (On Cam.)
More layering and investment pieces from Buckshot Sonny’s. Let me tell you: Put on that green chamois flannel shirt and the herringbone chore coat, and you’ll never want to take ‘em off.
Boots for years. (Red Wing on Oliver Drambour.)
Paparazzi effect: These guys directed Low & Clear, which was sponsored by Filson. It’s a move about fly fishing. Check it out.
Unstructured J.Crew messenger steeze. (On Brandon Butcher).
