With Friday approaching, this was a good resurrection from a follower. Circa 2011.
Another Friday, another day for Business Casual
Even though it is the second day of spring – the air is still cool, hence the sweater.
When I find myself wearing a lot of similar tones, highlighting with the opposite tone in smaller dosages is the best way to balance the look. Such as the red toned silk pocket square & brown suede shoes.

It’s on Sale: Best of Black Friday Deals on Wardrobe Basics
Our list of Thanksgiving holiday sales and discount codes continues to grow and be updated. Black Friday deals are hard to judge if they’re the best best price you’ll see on an item, however, it’s usually a good time to purchase items that fall under the umbrella of wardrobe basics that don’t go on end-of-season clearance.
The 30% off sale at Lands’ End produces several great deals, especially if you stack it with their clearance section, but it’s a good time to get a deal on basics, too. Their Hyde Park OCBDs come to $ 34.30 — just use code WONDERLAND with PIN 2126.
3sixteen has their raw selvedge denim on sale. Offering 10% off might not seem like a huge deal, but it’s rare they ever discount their jeans — in fact, they often sell out and the price keeps going up for a pair at retail ever year. I’m a huge fan of their SL-100x and Derek’s also praised his pair as well, too. Price comes to $ 198 with code BF2012 and sale ends tonight.
And if you need a cheaper pair of jeans, Levi’s 501s are 40% off with code BLKFRI, bringing their dark-rinse pair to $ 46.80.
If you live in a place that snows and don’t have winter boots yet, then I’d recommend picking up a pair of L.L.Bean Boots, which are on sale for $ 89.10 with code THANKS10, which knocks 10% off and you get free shipping. They’ve lasted me through two Chicago winters and will probably last many more.
If you need neckwear, The Knottery’s 25% off (code: GOBBLE) sale gives you silk knit ties for $ 18.75 and silk grenadines for $ 41.25 — both are an incredible deal. Derek’s reviewed both previously.
If you’re looking for affordable chinos, Ralph Lauren’s “Preston” chinos are on sale for $ 44.99 and come with free shipping. Four colors and a whole bunch of sizes still in stock.
Finally, if you’ve been thinking of getting a Barbour waxed cotton jacket, check out End Clothing’s selection. They’re offering 25% off your entire order and they deduct VAT for U.S. customers. That brings a jacket like the Ashby to $ 198.75.
