Style Share: March

I said I'd be back this month, and here I am. By doing Style Share a little less often, I think I'll be able to offer up even better items, and I think that holds true here. Haven't heard of this before? Well, basically I give away items of clothing and the only thing I ask is that the recipient of said free* item email me back a photo or two of them wearing it for a follow-up post on this site (I'll give you credit for the photo and even link your blog if you have one).

This month, I'm going to welcome in spring with open arms with four great ties and hold onto the cool weather with one great tweed hat. I'm sending out the first three items claimed, so let's do this!

Green Brooks Brothers

I just missed St. Patrick's Day, but frankly this Brooks Brothers tie should sail clear through summer. Nice greens and blues without being too crazy.

Brooks Brothers flowers

Beautiful navy Brooks Brothers tie with a flower motif. Spring. Easter. Summer. Everything. Wear it with a dark suit and play things down a bit, it goes with anything.

Brooks Brothers foulard

Another Brooks Brothers tie, this one in a nice foulard print. At this point, you're probably wondering why I don't just sell these things on ebay. The answer is that I really like my readers. Again, this one can go with so much and leaves your pocket square options wide open and bright.

Robert Talbott madras

If the above weren't enough, how about a mega vintage Robert Talbott madras tie? Cream and faint pinks and blues. Linen suits, white bucks, the whole nine yards. Claim it before I keep it.

flecked tweed hat

The wind was still whistling here today, and probably will be for a couple weeks yet. Size small. True measured circumference of 21.5". I have a hat like this I wear incessantly and it's great.

As usual, claim your item in the comments, then email me through the address listed on the site. It's really that simple.

Perhaps it goes without saying, but if you see something you like that doesn't get claimed and you want to trade/purchase it, just email me. I've actually traded for a few items in the past and frankly it's nearly just as fun for me.

*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 lay claim to the third Brooks Bros tie (the foulard print), please?

    Best Regards,

    Heinx-Ulrich von B.

  2. I would gratefully accept the Brooks Brothers tie at the top of the post--St. Paddy's inspired.

    Many thanks and fingers crossed.

    Patrick M.

  3. HUvB and Patrick: Those ties are yours, just send me an email with your addresses.

    Everyone else: There are still 3 things left, but one open slot. Who's (and what's) it going to be?

  4. Long time kibitzer ... If it's not too late, I would love to claim the Brooks Brother flower motif tie -- it's amazing.

  5. I would love to get the Talbot tie if it isn't too late.

    Please and thank you!


  6. Anonymous: Hit me up with an email and the Brooks Bros will be yours.

    Adam: I know I said three offerings, but I'm feeling generous this month so I'll hook you up as well. As with the others above, drop me an email with pertinent information.
