For no particular reason, I have made a separate blog for a personal, non menswear-related space. Head over to ask personal questions.if you’re one of those people who never ask on 4/3 because I don’t allow anonymous questions, this is for you. ask me about music, i like that. Also accepting submitted rants about the internet for all to read.
besides extensively answering questions, it’ll be that normal tumblr reblogging. yawn.
not a problem, I did say that. been shying away because I used to think I knew this answer, but I haven’t done too well with my money spending recently so I’m not absolutely trustworthy….. I’ll give it a shot.
If you’re like me— middle of college, without a professional or good paying job, young dude— let’s say forget wearing #wealth suits and extremely high-end brands. Not putting these things down, but I personally have no one to be impressing with clothes like that. It comes across stand offish.
So with that in mind, here’s what I do:
try out Everlane in it’s beginning stages (tees, bags, bow ties)
H&M (everything) (sorry, no online shops) specifically the Label of Graded Goods
maybe you’re lucky enough to have a Uniqlo
Urban Outfitters for shirts, shoes, jackets & coats
Follow “Put This On” for eBay finds postings
-or search ebay yourself for gently used Oxford Button Downs, etc.
If J. Crew is too pricey, they have a website for their factory outlet.
Try Gap Fit if you can/want take a 100$ hit for slim-straight selvedge denim
Target tends to copy popular stores’ styles. you can get lucky there.
search google for consignment shops in your town. you might be surprised.
Gilt Groupe, Jack Threads, svpply, etc. member-based websites can sometimes have great sales.
If you don’t have a lot, hit the sale racks but don’t buy something you dont like just because you can afford it.
Well, I am having trouble being as exhaustive as I usually am. I could use more tips with this as well. if anyone out there has the secret, let me know.
