Packing for Thanksgiving

I just finished packing for what is sure to be a rainy Thanksgiving in Oregon. Here’s what I grabbed:

  • Single-breasted trench
  • Tweed blazer
  • Cashmere scarf
  • 2x blue OCBD
  • Gingham button-down
  • Shetland wool sweater
  • Gray cotton sweater
  • Vintage OSU long-sleeve shirt (because go Beavs)
  • Selvage denim
  • 5-pocket garment-dyed trousers
  • Flannel shacket (it is Oregon, after all)
  • Brown suede chukkas
  • Vintage “I’ve been through everything” boots
  • Nylites

Throw in some socks and other necessities and this kit will make anyone ready for a put-together, dressed-down holiday with the folks. I think this photo also does a good job of outlining how I aim to dress every day – various combinations of simple, muted and versatile items.
