This Teacher Loves Thrifted Fashion: Steal His Holiday Style

There are some Instagram follows you just know you’d get along with IRL. At the top of that list? Eric Scott, aka Acute Style, a self-described “math teacher documenting his attempt to acquire an acute sense of style with items that cost less than $90.”

His smart, spiffy (do people say spiffy anymore?) outfits attracted our team’s attention years ago and keep it to this day.

A fan of textures and plaids, we thought the festive holiday season would be a perfect time to showcase a few of our favorites, with commentary from the man himself. Since these looks are mostly thrifted, we’ve shared links to similar-looking items where possible!

“Nothing keeps you warm like a tweed jacket and flannel trousers.”

“Navy and gray will never lead you astray.  It’s good for days when you don’t want to think much.”

“Nothing wrong with a little coordination.”   

“Fair Isle socks add a festive touch. Low-key ready for Christmas.”
