I'm ready to become /fa/ As someone who came from a modest family and got thrown into the world of architecture/design, I spent 4 years of college trying to figure out how I fit in. Parents never had money for clothes for me, nor did they care. I was left to check the discount racks at jcpenny. i couldnt imagine spending $80 on a shirt.
But now I have money, I'm ready to conform, to look like them and not feel like an outcast. Where do I start? JCrew? Frank and Oak? Urban Outfitters? I dont care about not being myself. i've been like that forever and it's gotten me nowhere.
>tldr who makes the best trendy stuff: jcrew, urban outfitters, something else?
If you want to fit in with the general public and still look better than most men get a subscription to GQ or something similar, decent advise on looks and trends. Clothing wise I've been happy with banana republic, calvin klein, michael kors, etc (cheaper brands with modern fits work for me). Don't have a j crew near me but i'd be there if I had one.
Best advise is play around with it yourself until you find something you like, rinse and repeat.
this guy is actually right. lurk around mfa for a bit, they'll tell you what $80 shirts to buy and then once you feel confident in what to wear, come back to /fa/ and then throw all your clothes away and start wearing tight black jeans, ridiculous looking shoes and an anime jacket
First get a basic wardrobe, then ask yourself who you admire from a fashion standpoint.
Find someone whose style you find appealing and ask yourself if you'd fit in it. A lot of people really like Steve McQueen and Michael Caine, try finding yours and creating something similar.
