Woah, when’s the last time we did a tailoring transformation?
Anyone here want to get more Ethan and Spencer in your lives? Well I’ve got two things you can check out: our Youtube video and the Style & Direction podcast.
Buying a three piece, chalk stripe, half lined, high rise trouser suit for $3 is probably a once-in-a-lifetime situation. Getting three suits for $25 each, however, is still pretty damn good! Don’t worry, this isn’t an ad for Jos A. Bank; it’s more of advice to always check eBay since you never know what you’re going to find!
I’m always on the lookout for cheap, vintage suits. You’re guaranteed to find great suits at vintage stores like Joyride or from sellers like Benny, but there’s nothing like the feeling like scoring a great piece at a thrift store. If you look hard enough and have great patience, you can definitely find some cool stuff! And sometimes, you’ll find it on a sale day where your suit will cost $3.
On this next edition for “Inspiration for Less”, we take another look at the Armoury’s co-founder Mark Cho and recreate his outfit using less-expensive and thrifted items! This time, he wears something super simple: a blue jacket, white shirt, black tie, and grey trousers.
It may look like pretty vintage/1930’s in the picture above, but other than the tie, it’s all modern! I thought that it would be appropriate to finally write a post on how to dress in 1930-40s’s style in today’s time, making it easy to understand and without you having to buy too much “true vintage”!
