    Browns, tans and greens are always exerting their gravitational pull on me.

    I had not worn this shirt for some time, fearing that it would be too billowy,
    given my evolving tastes towards ever slimmer shirts.
    Happily, it was not too bad.

  7. J.Crew salmon cotton sweater
    Jack Spade gray OCBD (ebay)
    Polo double-knee workpants

    Cotton sweaters may not be as warm as wool, but they seem to pill much less.
    And they tend to be a bit cheaper. What's not to love?

  9. Vintage Chaps blue blazer, made in America (thrifted)
    J.Crew brown merino wool cotton v-neck sweater
    Polo pink gingham broadcloth button down shirt (Marshall's)
    Polo orange bow tie (ebay)
    Polo olive distressed khakis
    Banana Republic brown leather belt
    J.Crew dark brown pebbled chukkas

    It seems to have been a while since I wore a blue blazer.
    The khakis seemed to have too little contrast against by other potential jackets.

    BTW, for some reason, the union label was completely washed out after my first dry cleaning.
    What gives? Is dry cleaning harsher now?

    Update: apparently I can't distinguish wool from cotton.

  10. Barbour Classic Buford (not pictured)
    Club Monaco blue linen sweater
    Polo denim buttondown shirt (ebay)
    Rugby tan corduroys
    Banana Republic brown leather belt
    Tretorn green rubber boots
    Club Monaco leather bracelet
    Timex Weekender with J.Crew orange NATO strap

    This new webcam softwear stinks. Automatic settings blow out the background,
    and the manual mode is too fussy to get correct. I don't have time for this!

    BTW, the link is not to the Barbour site,
    as they don't seem to have a page for this classic piece of outerwear.
