Style Share - January

I've got one return from a previous months Style Share coming soon and hopefully more on the way, so it seems that this little experiment in crowd-sourcing is working.

No real theme to this months items, just some neat ties and a sweater that I found. There are four things to choose from (for free*), and I'll send out items to the first two people to claim their items in the comments. Once items are claimed, they're off the board, but those who claimed the item will need to contact me through the email listed in my profile so I know where to mail stuff.

As always, the only thing I ask is that the recipient of said item of clothing email me back a photo or two of them wearing it for a follow-up post on this site. It doesn't have to be lit like The Sartorialist or even show your face, it just has to show how you put it to use.

Enough disclaimers, here are the items:

Brooks BrothersThis one was claimed last month, but I was never contacted so it's back in action. This tie is so versatile that it's almost hard to imagine an outfit that it doesn't work with.

Christian Dior tie
Beautiful vintage Dior tie in dots with gray, red, and purple. Depending on what it's surrounded with, I could see it being either playful or subdued. Super sharp.

shawl neck
Vintage wool shawl-neck sweater (size medium in case you can't read the tag). Panache brand (you can't beat that name!), this one has plastic buttons, but is perfect for the couple months of winter that remain.

orange wool knit
Vintage orange wool knit tie, straight outta Scotland. Perfect for those have Syracuse, University of Texas, Illinois, or any other number of schools as their alma matter. Or hell, just get it if you love nubby wool texture and ORANGE.

*Seriously, it's free, and yours to keep forever. No strings attached. I won't share your name on the site or with anyone else unless you have a blog of your own that you want me to link. Please note that all clothing will be used (but certainly not stained, smelly, or damaged, as I do have standards), so please only agree to participate if this sort of thing doesn't gross you out. Thanks.


  1. Okay, i am sorry for begging again, but that orange vintage knitted tie...if there is no other person applying for it, i´d kill...and please give me the chance to return something...will you?

  2. I'll send a nice pocket-square in exchange for the BB striped tie... and a photo.


  3. I would love that striped BB tie! I'm still new to the thrifting thing, and I just love your blog!

  4. YWP, shoot me an email and I'll hook you up with the BB tie.

    EI, it looks like you posted at almost the exact same time. The BB tie is reserved now unless I don't hear back, but definitely keep your eye out. The Christian Dior is still available, and I'll be back on next month with a brand new batch of stuff.
