Cold & Murky WTH Style

I'm spending my (late) evenings and mornings at the family summer camp, conveniently located only a few miles from my apartment.

With no plumbing to speak of and the weather remaining unseasonably cold, it's not as much fun as mid-summer, when I can quite literally go jump in the lake.

The other day, in fact, it was chilly enough to chuck together items with the aim of staying warm and dry as I puttered around. I even went and chucked a line into the lake attired as such, which is:

A Lands End tweed from the days when they made sacks, just one of the many great finds from the Ask Andy Trad forum; an LL Bean long-sleeve pullover that I never wear, for no good reason; beater chinos from the days the K-Mart's house brand was flat-fronted, untreated, and about $12 per; and another Ask Andy find, a pair of hardly-worn Filson boots I could not ever afford new.

Congrats on a wonderful blog. Great look. I like the boots and the tweed jacket. How's the shoulder padding?

Padding is light. I normally don't like any, but this seems to be about the right amount.
