I have 1000 bucks to spend
I need atleast an outfit for everyday of the week + sleepwear and shoes (1 or 2 pairs)
I like what Jcrew has to offer, I need high prep /fa/gs
I'm 6' 3" and about the same build as dude in pic related
Do you have to buy everything in one sitting, right now, in bulk?
That's a good way to get shit you won't like, that won't fit quite right, and that you won't enjoy.
>what are you dressing for? what are your usual activities?
>colors. which ones look best on you?
I'm sorry, I was a /b/ tard for awhile and then went to /fit/ and now I'm bouncing between /fa/ and /fit/, I've abandoned /b/.
I look good in greys and reds. Also Brown leathers etc. Ill post pics of me
I don't have snakebites anymore, and I usually keep to a skin fade haircut up to top length
Another one of me, high contrast and gay as fuck with a gay t-shirt. I want to look affluent damnit,
Also, got rid of all blonde and I keep to my natural hair color
Not necessarily looking for a personal shopping army, more of a good opinion on what I would look good w/ style wise, and what I can afford under 1000 USD that will fill my wardrobe.
If you have time to critique, I appreciate it.
Greys are much better on you than reds.
You still haven't said wtf you're dressing for, do you need sweats or jeans are ok? You're always in short sleeves in the pics, what climate are we talking about? Do you need a good warm coat?
I live in Utah, we have the best of both worlds. Preferably something like light long sleeves and light sweatshirts/hoodies/insert designer name here <<< Maybe one thick coat? I like the fur around the edges on the hood. Jeans are great, as well as chinos and 770 fit. I can do anything from loafers to crocks, just classy, no nike or swagfag tier shit.
Google says your temperatures range from 30 C to barely under freezing, with high humidity.
It looks like what we have here where I live, but with more rain.
Sorry, but just say no to the fur on the coat, that's for cold/arid climates, with high humidity it will clump. OTOH, you can grab a meme woolen coat. Just don't fall for the brands or the memes.
You want to look affluent, and have 30 degrees in summer - how do you feel about linen? do you suffer the summer heat, or it's not that bad?
Anyway, start from the shoes. Some good boots (you have rainy winters) and lighter summer shoes (sneakers? you get rainy summers, maybe lighter leather shoes?)
Makes sense about the fur, and can you compare linen to another fabric? I'm sorry, I've been cotton and polyester my whole life. And I'm okay in the summers, I adjust to temperature very well. I like the leather shoe idea, I'm not a sneakers fan.
Uniqlo? I'll check it out.
No. I'll compare linen to ice cream. It's fluffy, delicious soft serve, that will keep you cool in the hotter months. It wrinkles so fast it's usually worn wrinkled, and it's less dressy, more expensive, and less common than cotton. It's great to make button ups less stuffy, and I'm biased because I get hot as fuck, it's a personal favorite.
For shoes and boots, first find out what's available where you live. Maybe you can find some nice production seconds, some local shoemaker, or ebay deals.
Like the coat, real leather shoes are built to last, so try to keep them boring and versatile, lace up dress boots, and maybe suede for the summer? but that won't last as long as leather, nowhere near.
And with linen, does that only apply to shirts (short-sleeve/long-sleeve) and light jackets? Or should I buy all linen. What about pants fabrics? I really enjoy chino 770 fit that jcrew offers. Is this a good buy? Also, what goes good with linen fabrics, I'm thinking of going with the simple linen styles such as henly's or Oxford Jackets. Heavy coats suggestions anon??
Read the sticky and find out about the basics. Trust me, you'll be just as uninformed on clothing but wearing things you know nothing about. Secondly, you should get your measurements done, it'll save you a lot of pain in the future if you're ordering online as many brands have varying sizes.
IDK, I live in Italy, here we still have shirt and shoe makers. No idea how the American market works, but you are bound to have better options than importing from Europe.
Pants are better in a linen mix (cotton/linen), unless we're talking about tropical summers, wrinkly pants aren't for everyone.
In shirts, you can go for long sleeves, the fabric will keep you cooler than short sleeves. If you can find linen henleys, cool, but it's not a very common fabric, you'll find mostly button-ups.
For heavy coats, personally I go for milsurp with good materials, but again - Europe, we have a dozen different milsurps to choose from on our doorstep.
