WIWT: Old Navy Got A Tumblr

I went to Old Navy the other time because I didn't feel like doing laundry so I decided to buy cheap new underwear, surprisingly their underwear is quite comfortable and cheap (obviously). I browsed a little because "you only live once," and saw this short sleeve patterned short. I really think Old Navy got a tumblr or their design team is seriously "stepping up" their game with prints. I also got these cargo pants that fit surprisingly slim. I don't care if shopping at Old Navy take some of the little credibility I have as a "blogger." Anyway, don't you guys think it's a cool shirt? Wooden buttons and all. Only ten dollars.

1. Cargo Slim Pant; Old Navy: $15.99
2. Patterned Short Sleeved Button Down Shirt: $10.
3. Timex Camper Watch: $30.
4. New Balance 574: $39.99

WIWT: Discounted Nautical

I went to Old Navy the other day since I haven't done laundry in a while and I needed underwear and I didn't want to spend too much on it. I went to the sales section and I found this blue striped sweater. I have been looking for an exact sweater like that for years, no joke. A sweater with thinner lines starting half down the chest. It's a bit big, but then again you know Old Navy sizes extremely big. The best deal is that I got it for $4.99.

In conclusion:
Nautical Blue Striped Sweater: $ 4.99
Sperry Top Siders: $19.99
Self-Tailored Chinos: .40 cents.

WIWT: Camo & Ankle Cleavage

(click to enlarge)
I found this bad ass camo jacket at my local Thrift Town for only four dollars. It fits amazing. It is a true uniform jacket, and you can even see the loose threads that were left after the badges were removed from the jacket. It's seriously the perfect Spring jacket and you have no idea how it good it makes my chest/shoulders look when I wear it (via people telling me my shoulder/chest look "nice."). If you want one but can't afford the Tumblr picks, you should go to your local thrift.

Also, as you can see in this picture, there is a handkerchief on the collar of the jacket. I wear handkerchiefs as neck ties during all the seasons, or at least I carry one in my bag just because it really prevents the sweat or hair product to get on your shirt and it prevents it from discoloring it. I wear them during winter because I can't stand to wear thick scarves and I get neck pains wearing them, so I just wear a handkerchief instead. I advice all guys to give the handkerchief a try, and elongate your collar's life (it will also make you look bad ass depending on what you wear it with). I got this from my grandpa because he would always wear one when he'd take me camping with him as a child.

PS: I know I said there was going to be new tutorials (specially for long sleeves) but work and school have consumed me and all I do is sleep and eat. But I promise I will do these tutorials, I mean, not like it's in high demand but I've gotten some anon messages on tumblr asking for them. Also, I will still do a peacoat tutorials, so you can stock up on peacoats during the summer look all fresh (see what I did there?) during the winter months.

Tall Trees & Moss

"Do you know what I need? To escape into the mountains, surrounded by tall trees, I will lay on the moss, and breath in the scent of mushrooms, flowers and wet soil."
