Driving in Cars with Pocket Squares

A hastily organized and poorly photographed catalog of purely ornamental pieces of thrift store fabric. Also, other things.
Consider the Office Cardigan
When I get to work I usually hang my jacket up immediately, leaving me looking somewhat sartorially incomplete for the remainder of the day. I like putting together odd jacket looks for office wear, but keeping my jacket on all day would be a bridge too far, even for me. So in the event of a staff meeting or an interview, I like to be able to put something on over my shirt and tie, without always resorting to re-donning my sport coat (especially considering some of the wilder plaids I tend to favor from time to time).
That’s where the office cardigan comes in. Something simple, like this navy blue 100% cashmere number from Johnsons of Elgin (thrifted) is versatile enough to go with almost anything, but with enough unique details (MOP buttons, an extremely soft hand) to not be boring. Plus, it can be handy in dealing with the harsh climates of the office air conditioner system.
