SECONDHAND DIAMONDS 💎 Craigslist Edition! Swipe to see the whole post!
Another autumn-like day in the middle of August. It should be the hottest it'll be all year, and instead I'm ramping up to go full fall time colors.
Today I'm really digging this vertical striped @neimanmarcus exclusive from @etonshirts. When I say this is the nicest shirt I've ever owned, I mean this is the most intricately crafted shirt I have ever laid my hands on. Found in an ad on Craigslist! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This shirt retailed about $300+. I paid $25. Same price of a t-shirt.
The fabric is somehow soft but tough, thick but breathable, comfortable but form fitting. The shirt itself is heavy. I'm not sure I've ever said that about a shirt before. It has real weight to it. The collar feels like...like really firm, almost like a brace. But god damn, it is SO comfortable. The torso is tailored fit, and it grips the chest (and the stomach, ahem, ahem) but it looks great! It does not have the "big dude boobs" thing that a lot of shirts have, the fabric slides down over the chest, rather than gripping it and letting your manfloppers flop. Fantastic for plus size dudes. A real first time experience.
So, I took that bad boy and paired it with these wild @paulsmithdesign cufflinks, and I think the lines-on-lines look, contrasted by the huge difference in the two color pallets, looks cool. I don't know how to describe it, in terms of fashion or proper terminology. It just looks really cool to me.
Lesson: DC area residents throw away things that have way more value than they either realize or care about. And I will be here to snag it up. I'm like the Ghost of Tom Joad, but for fashion, not systemic oppression.
