Sticky is down arm
Can someone tell me some brands of clothing that are pretty cost efficient? I.e. I'm mostly spending for quality, not brand
I've heard of Everlane and Wings and Horns, but I'd like some variety as well. I'm looking mostly for hooded sweatshirts or crewneck sweaters.
Thanks for any and all help
Thanks for the reply! I'm guessing as is Acne Studios correct? If you have the time, would you mind telling me what item each brand is particularly known for?
Also what are some really cost efficient and comfortable shoes? I don't care much for look if the shoes are comfortable.
Just remember two concepts about buying clothes, anon. You get what you pay for and the principle of diminishing returns.
You shouldn't buy too much cheap shit unless you're just getting started and want to build a wardrobe and find your style. You also shouldn't spend too much money on pretentious designer clothes, because honestly? Nobody gives a shit outside of /fa/ if you paid 1000$ for some Rick Owens sneakers.
Uniqlo has great basics, but all their pants come in length 34 exclusivly. They offer free tailoring in their stores if you bought it there though. H&m / C&A and all that is fine quality wise too.
You can and Continental clothing for Basics.
Quality is shit. You have to throw it away after 3 months and a few washes because the stuff loses it's Form, gets holes, starts peeling etc. Don't buy! Same with Zara.
What is c&a? And I would say my style is a t-shirt, jeans, and some trainers. I like outerwear though, quite a bit!
Mind telling me what you mean by diminishing returns? I'm not poor in any way, I guess I just want to get started and have about $1000 to just spend trying that. Most important is a nice hoodie and comfortable shoes as I'm on my feet a lot in cool weather. If there are brands where I can't go wrong with those and a specific pair of shoes, then you guys might have just changed my life.
c&a is a clothing chain, usually found in Europe.
Diminishing returns means that the input (money) you put into something loses worth as you put more in. For example, a lot of people on budgets will buy a pair of jeans for 40$ and have good value out of them. But a levis jeans for 100$ would likely last much longer and have higher quality. Every dollar you spend "gets" you more, up until a point where you're spending 300$ for some jeans that will last just as long as jeans you spent 200$ for.
/biy/ can explain it better than I can. i.e. Keep your feet on the ground is all I'm saying
Ahh that makes a lot of sense, when I see people buying $500 shirts I think to myself how good can the quality be? And that sounds like shopping smart as opposed to just buying nice clothing. I'm looking for shoes that are exactly how you described. Good for the price, probably willing to spend half a grand if they're comfortable too. If you know any versatile shoes like that, I would buy them in a heartbeat
in this context diminishing returns means that once you pass a certain price point you get much less bang for your buck.
if you buy $10 tshirt its gonna suck.
if you buy a $50 one itll be ok.
if you buy a $200 one itll be awesome
but if you buy a $800 tshirt it probably wont feel like its worth $600 more than a $200 one
Mind posting a fit pic? I'm not worried about the cost of its truly quality, I'm just worried how the proportions look on a person that isn't a model, also I have a gymnast body so I'm fit but not huge
Acne isn't that cost efficient. Scandinavian brands that promote "norse lifestyle" usually have pretty nice quality and interesting cuts that keep their shape well after washing. Check their winter sales out.
COS also has a decent reputation for efficiency.
Really, it's more a matter of knowing which brands to avoid. Zara for instance offers very low quality and even though their stuff isn't super expensive, it's almost never worth it.
