Style Share - February

After a slow start, Style Share has really taken off during the past month with quite a few returns. If you haven't checked them out yet, take a spin through the archives.

Again, there's no theme this month, just a variety of interesting things that I thought readers could claim and run with. There are five things to choose from (for free*), and I'll send out items to the first three people to claim their items in the comments. Once items are claimed, they're off the board, but the person who claimed the item will need to contact me through the email listed in my profile so I know where to mail the particular items.

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.

Onward to the items!

Robert Talbott
Great, classic Robert Talbott tie in black silk with skinny white, gray and red stripes. Goes with anything.

Lands End ocbd
Lands' End vintage OCBD in blue and pink! 60/40 blend (cotton/poly) made in the U.S.A. No size tag, but based on measurements (neck is 16", sleeve from shoulder seam to hem is 26", chest, from armpit to armpit is 21") I think it's a 16/34. No brainer on the colors, I wish it fit me.

Hardy Amies
Great, crazy paisley 100% silk tie from Hardy Amies. Straight outta London.

Lands End Jacket
Lightweight 100% wool Lands' End jacket in size 41R. Awesome multicolor houndstooth pattern that's just begging for slightly warmer temps. Don't worry, it's going to happen soon.

3 leaf clover tie
St. Patrick's Day is next month, and this navy poly blend tie will be your perfect accompaniment either then or any other that you want to play it loose.

*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. May I trade for the black tie? I have an item here to send you.


  2. YWP, the tie is yours. I'll shoot you an email.

    Note to other readers, I'm still going to leave three items (of the last four) to be claimed. If three don't get claimed in the near future, I'll add something else...

  3. Added the Hardy Amies tie. Claim away.

  4. I'll rock the Hardy Amies tie, if you'd like. Already have an idea or two...

  5. Schorsch, drop me an email through the address listed in my profile and I'll hook you up.

  6. I love, love that Land's End jacket. Very country squire. I can't ask you to take a hit on the shipping charges to Canada though. I would be happy to send PayPal or Money Order to cover shipping costs.

  7. JoeTheMiddleYears, Gallant maneuver, Sir! Staggering civility!

  8. JTMY, drop me an email through the address listed in my profile and we'll sort it out.

  9. What an interesting and utterly charming idea. I'm intrigued.

  10. For the record, the wide wool tie, the Lands' End oxford, and the clover tie are still up for grabs. If anyone wants to snag them, either comment here and/or drop me an email.

    Or, wait until next month, when I unveil another round of stuff. :)

  11. I'll wait for next time, since I dont know if the shirt would fit me :)
    I'll wait for some more cool ties hehe..

    great project mr midwester!!!
