Feeling Ducky

When you keep to an individual set of color tones, pattern mixing becomes much easier. While remembering that pattern proportions should reach different scales in each item as not to seem so busy, the argyle, plaid and duck motif mix well. The feathers in the hat also play off the duck motif.

All together, this outfit cost around $32. I was quite fortunate to pick up the hat, tie, pants and shoes for $8 at a thrift shop last week. The vest was only $10 at Macy's while the shirt came from eBay for $14.

Shirt - Polo plaid poplin
Sweater vest - Club Room argyle
Tie - Lands' End duck motif wool 
Pant - vintage wool/cotton
Hat - Dorfman Pacific wool felt
Shoes (not pictured) - Florsheim brown wingtips

  1. Great tie. Though I'm a sucker for emblematics. I have a similar BB one in silk that's navy.
