What better way to learn about a person's style than to style stalk them for a week? Last time we caused much collective salivation over Elliott James Sainsbury's wardrobe and we did not have to think too hard about who we wanted to feature next. Step forward Thom of The Sunday Best who jumped at the chance after confessing he was something of narcissistic bastard. Please sit back and become a voyeur as we are let in to the first four days in his shoes.
We will let him introduce his first few looks...
My first instinct was to go through my closet and put together my seven or so "best" outfits, but decorum and pride --what if my curated outfits were unadulterated crap-- got the better of me. So here, for better or worse, are the outfits I wore over a week at work. (In the interest of full disclosure these pictures were taken over two work weeks.) Let us begin.
Standard work wear - v-neck, shirt, tie, cords and boat shoes. Here I am trying to usher in Spring but it is still freezing in Victoria. The tie is one of the many I've bought at Value Village, probably 25 now in total.
Casual Fridays don't mean much in government since people wear jeans and t-shirts on a regular basis. I guess this is why I tend to still wear ties on Friday, although I do like jeans at work. Unfortunately Clack Clack Empire, the store where I bought the Wrath Arcane shirt, has since closed.
More work uniform. The tie is a thick cotton from Dunderdon - thick cotton and wool are going to gradually replace all my silk ties.
The rest of the week's outfits with be accompanied by his shop recommendations later this week.
