    GREAT look all around, including the background set.

    Off to work at the assembly plant . . . okay, actually I'm just going for groceries today, but I couldn't resist hamming it up a bit!

    Home from work on a casual Tuesday. Nothing much exciting with the attire.

    Very nice, BoPeep, you look like the complete classy-yet-casual package there. :yo:


    I took a few pictures today, again with the '80s Sears suit I got from my father last week. I added a trench coat I found at a church yard sale, and my new favorite hat!

    The college student trying to get his meager skills a bit closer to his big-band idols:

    With the jacket added, trying out a Glenn Miller mute style:

    And out on a walk later, with overcoat and a wonderful bargain-priced Henschel hat. When it started raining later in the day, I could not feel it a bit!

    I came back from break with so many new shirts and suits that my closet went from half-full to PACKED. I'll share some new combinations as I get time to wear them. There's nothing truly vintage (unless the above overcoat is older than I think), but I'll certainly try to make the best swing-era look with the wardrobe I have.
