Short-sleeved oxford cloth button downs have long been part of the uniform of the geeky engineer. Good thing that’s exactly what I am. Get one, it’ll make your arms look longer.

Thrifter’s Delight.
This is the thrifter’s uniform.  Slip ons, neutral colors and a bag to hold stuff (so your hands are free).  It’s also a good summer uniform, easy, comfortable, slightly off key (khaki jeans rather than chinos).  A look that’s super casual, but still pulled together.
Also, true story, I was picking my girlfriend up from work a couple weeks ago in almost this exact outfit (tassel loafers rather than venetian) and her boss asked “are you going somewhere special?” which was confusing, because we were just going thrifting.  Turned out she asked because I was “all dressed up”.
THIS IS THE LEVEL YOU NEED TO DRESS AT TO BE DRESSED UP THESE DAYS.
Sad really.

Just to reiterate that it doesn’t take much to appear put-together these days.

Worked from home today so kept it mad casual with the white pocket t and jeans. Baseball jacket when I went out.

Welcome to my life, new favorite jacket. You look cool and are perfect for this chilly-but-not-cold weather we’re having right now. Many thanks to Epaulet for having this jacket at the lowest sale price on the Internetz and shipping insanely quick.

Yeah, I don’t know.

And yes, oatmeal (not white) ragg wool socks because it is wet and freezing today.

Home sick so I’m very lazy and look pretty haggard. Also doing laundry.

I went outside with no jacket today and I started sweating.

I’m leaning toward returning this orange shaggy dog sweater I got from Rugby. I think it looks better in photos than IRL. I do like the contrast with navy though, but that reminds me of UIllinois school spirit and that is just super corny in my mind for some reason.

I swear this jacket was made by Wayne Industries and ended up in the  Applied Sciences dungeon. But actually, it’s made by Aspesi, an Italian  brand I only just recently found out about. It’s a polyimide shell with  Thermore® poly insulation and so lightweight and warm it’s unbelievable.  I typically don’t go for stuff made from synthetic fabrics but I love  this thing. Also, strangely, it photographs brownish but most definitely  is deep green in color.

I got a lot done today: cut a bunch of my hair off, took this pic, got locked out of my apartment because I took this pic…still locked out of my apartment because I took this pic.

Lately I’ve been drawn to strict monochronism based in blues. Not sure why.
Happy Friday.
