Heavy on the linen today!
That's a great look!

Braces - Topman
Tan Brogues - can't remember!
Watch strap and anchor bracelet - Trashness
Not sure if I am a massive fan - but heck they're on now so it's happening! Ha.
I think Braces can work - are you wearing a jacket?

I think braces can work, but I am more of a fan of button on braces.
I'd say button-ons are better, they work better with a jacket, and their width needs to fit your body type; I'm not a big fan of them there.
Had today's outfit in my head for a while so it's nice to have the weather for it and that it looks as good as I imagined. Feels kind of 50s to me:
Sunglasses, (elk!) leather jacket & watch - Vintage
Linen shirt & socks - Uniqlo
Belt - Topman
Jeans & loafers - Zara
That's an awesome look, BSB. I've been thinking of getting a tan-leather jacket to rock a similar look. It looks so suave.
I would definitely recommend eBay. That jacket cost me £6 + £4 shipping + £30 at the tailor getting the body and sleeves slimmed down. £40 for a quality leather is a bargain as far as I'm concerned.

Not particularly, I'd make sure you filter it down to Used only, but beyond that it's just patience and luck really.
