It's easy being green

It seems that the theme of the past week has been green, and perhaps that's fitting considering the grass is turning quickly and everything is starting to bloom. I've run across no less than three beautiful accessory items (albeit quite different in style) in the past week, and all of them have shared the aforementioned color.

First off, a totally rocking L.L. Bean tie ($2) with embroidered lobsters on it.

It's very similar to the tie that Giuseppe scored in a recent batch, but slightly different. Oh, and lets see a closeup of those lobsters, shall we?

Next up is a very sharp diagonal stripe from Ralph Lauren in fiery red and emerald ($1). Oh, and it even has an embroidered polo horse and mallets on it. I think Scott at The Cable Knit Collegian would approve.

Lastly (but certainly not least) is this Italian-made 100% cotton pocket square that really is just too subtle and beautiful for words. Delicious creamy cotton with some nice little rounded-off green squares that really give it a clean but organic feel.

Here's to spring. For real this time.

  1. Those ties are quite fantastic. I've never seen a pocket square like that. Thanks for the reference and happy thrifting!
