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