Hey /fa, I've been lurking for a while trying to get a good idea on how to star my wardrobe.

What are some /fa essentials I need to cop that I can build of off?
>>
>>9124851
don't let yourself get dressed by the internet

1. lurk
2. get a feeling for what is appealing to you
3. cop clothes that fit your style

it's that easy
>>
I take the retard route.

Try everything, keep the clothes that you like.
>>
well it obviously depends where you want to start.
first and foremost, LURK. I don't know how long but i'd say a month.
It's probably safe to say that you'll need basic tees (everyone will tell you Uniqlo) so you can probably buy those so long. (maybe stick to black and white/ neutral colours at first)
You should probably read the sticky if you haven't.
Lurking will help you find a style that appeals to you. You'll need a nice pair of pants.

obviously, you can skip all this and instantly become an effay meme by buying rick owens and a shit tonne of drape.

point is to keep it under control and dress like yourself. Start with dressing well normally (learnt by lurking) and if you want to move on high fashion from there then do that. After a month you'll definitely have an idea of what you want.

(read your question again and realised i didn't answer)
Answer: basic tees (simple colours) from uniqlo
white sneakers - common projects/stan smith's
pants that fit well
build from there
>>
>>9124851

>black jeans
>white button down

>lol anon why are you dressed like a waiter

black birkenstocks aren't timeless they're an ugly trend that will go away in a few months
>>
>>9125853
what do you put on your feet in the summer heat?

Everything you need here OP. Maybe less color because /fa/ hates colors. Add your underwears of choice and a nice pair of sneakers and you're set.
>inb4 dadcore
>>
>>9126321
>Maybe less color
COLOR IS GOOD

you'll look like an edgelord in all black unless you're handsome as fuck, there are good color tones in this display, this layout is 100x better than what most of /fa/ dress like
>>
>>9126321
w2c boots?
>>
my personal essential list...

coats / jackets:
- bomber
- fishtail parka
- workers jacket
- wool overcoat
- down jacket
- raincoat

>>9125836

>>9126603
I have a job, it's school that's killing me
>>
>>9125836
sounds more like /fa/ clothing trends of the year list
>bombers
>skinnies
>CPs
>monochrome
>>
what are some good black skinny jeans, other than acne or APC for between $200 and $300
>>
>>9126321
>>9126325
The earth tone palette works well on many people and the designs are timeless, but you'll still come off looking try hard if you go for a full 'mah heritage' look
>>
I was checking out babby's first raws and found these, but they're all out.

I don't know store stuff, is there any way to know when they'll restock?

If not, any alternatives for similar prices you could point me to?

that's how normal people dress though, you'd look so much more tryhard and weird wearing memeochrome
>>
>>9126654
Actually, you can wear anything and look tryhard. It's about how comfortable you are in your clothing that determines whether or not you look tryhard. Why do you think most pics are of people walking out of people standing around randomly (ops pic). Everything you wear looks good and ugly to somebody.
>>
Looking for a jacket. Plain black, nothing fancy. What are some good UK stores to try?
>>
>>9124871
> "dont let youself get dressed by the internet"
> "lurk"
wtf m9
>>
>>9126321
w2c backpack
>>
>>9127016
lurk to see if you pick up inspiration you like

if ppl shit talk your fit or a fit you like don't be bothered
>>
>>9127016
if you can't discern the difference with simple reasoning or common sense, then you can't be helped
>>
>>9125853
Because waiters are effay af

Or you know, you could combine the white shirt with a sweater.
>>
>>9126550
Welcome to /fa/, glad to have you here with us
>>9126597
Most of those don't even look like CPs, except for the kent Wangs and Zara ripoffs

Sure all of them are white sneakers, but they don't fit the same aesthetic at all (vans slipons lol)

Doesn't make sense to call them "cp alternatives"

>>9126603
thought most of /fa/ lives with their parents or works minimum wage (no offense to anyone of course, it's just what I gathered from being here a while)

>>9126637
What city you in mate? Best to try on some different raws irl to see how they fit

Unbranded is cheap, but the fit isn't for everyone

Their "skinny" is more of a slim straight

w2c within a £100 budget?
>>
>>9126550
lol sorry for negative tone earlier not intended
>>
>>9127789
not sure if that's the sterling or euro symbol, but Topman has some cheap ones about $40 to $70 that fit slim (quality isn't very good though)

I heard they're bigger in the UK than they are here In Canada so it should be easy to find one.

God those gloves are fucking terrible. Hat should get lost too.

>>9124884

w2c chelseas $<200? seen asos but not sure if worth.

don't buy chelseas if you're not willing to pay up, cheap chelseas look like absolute shit

also ask fuccboi general next time
>>
Where do I start if I want to go for a comfycore look but I want to wear women's stuff? An andro sort of comfy look.

>>9128916
Long sweaters. Even men's sections have them. Check H&M.
>>
>>9129358
What about pants?
You have a good point with the sweaters.
Not sure what to do about the pants and outerwear.
>>
>>9126321
This is so boring. Go post this on reddit.
>>
>>9128333
w2c that hair

>>9128403
saw alpha industries at the eaton centre, but it's insulated so it's not as slim as one would want

also saw a couple of wool bombers by a brand called "RVLT" at showroom

>>9128467
Workwear

>>9128610
No, that's not me. The "real" user actually posted in a thread like just today. I changed my name because I don't want to look like I'm impersonating him.

>>9128625
