Personal Style Monday Feature – Thrifted Menswear

Happy Monday! Today is Personal Style Monday so I hope you’re ready to linkup your outfits below! Before you do, I want to introduce my 1st Personal Style Monday feature – my hubby, Darrius! For once, he let me turn the camera on him. :-)

Needless to say, I love his style. He’s always been a pretty good dresser but over the past 3 years or so, he’s been really into defining his personal style. What better way than the thrift store to do so! I have turned his man into the thrift store king! He loves thrifted menswear and always scores the best deals. I believe half of his closet is thrifted menswear – I’ve trained him well! ;-)

I like to think of Darrius’ style as “grown man casual”. Because he works as a hospitality professional, he’s usually in a suit and tie most days. So when he has a chance to dress down, this is his usual look. Darrius loves hats and caps. I joke with him and tell him that’s the country boy in him, lol - he’s originally from Sussex County, Delaware. He actually finds most of his hats and caps while thrifting.

When it comes to thrifted menswear, Darrius gets it. He shops smart and shops a lot of menswear basics like white dress shirts, blazers, and coats. He also finds a lot of dress shoes that are in almost perfect condition.

Thrifted menswear allows you to not only stock up on basics, but it also saves money. Finding shirts, suits and long dress coats for under $10 is simply unbeatable. And like me, Darrius does a great job at mixing thrifted menswear with department store items.  It creates a nice wardrobe balance and anytime you can save money and stay true to your personal style, it’s a win-win!

    I love that he loves to thrift, David is starting to like it a little more lol. I would definitely agree that his style is Grown Man Casual, the cap looks perfect with the rest of his look.
