Ultimate noob thread - recommend me X in my wardrobe - post questions here please. - Page 19

Why shrink to fit? The quality isn't somehow better. Unless you buy LVCs that are unsanforized, you're not gonna find stf. I still don't understand. Just grab some h&ms or some uniqlos or something that's flattering. If you're a high school kid, i don't think getting 501s will make you stand out or anything, nor are they better quality than other levis products. You can scoop up APCs for relatively cheap on ebay or buy&sell/supermarket. Same with acnes, rrls, or some other brands. I guess i'm not really sure of your angle here.

Thanks for the help I'll check out my options i think I'll stick with H&M's stf i guess it will be good practice for when i do get A.P.C.'s

H&m does not have stf as far as i know. Raw and stf aren't the same thing. Unless you buy specific stf levis 501 or get certain jeans from Blue in Green or Self Edge, i don't think you'll ever have to worry about shrink to fit denim.

Found a site where i can get american apparel tees ridiculously cheap. What size should I get if I want it a little bit smaller then a uniqlo small? Also, should I get the jersey tee or the poly cotton tee?
post #275 of 4945
Poly cotton; in terms of sizing, you might be screwed as American Apparel's sizing is kinda fucked to begin with...but try the xs.
post #276 of 4945
Alright. Maybe I will start with just one to make sure they fit instead of the 12 I was going to order. Do they shrink a lot when washed?

WMMK- Did you ever make it out to Reiss? I also continue to stand by Club Monico as my go to place for sweaters. All the cardis I've bought from them have been purchased for less than 60 bucks; quality is a lot better than J Crew, H&M, AA, or anything you can find in a mall really.

+1

I've got 3 really nice sweaters from there that I paid $29 each for respectively. One slim cardigan thats 70% cashmere 30% cotton that has held up well, and a 100% merino v-neck that has worn well for 3 years now. The only one that didn't last as well was a 100% cotton quarter zip pullover that stretched ou badly. But at the prices their discounts go to you can't beat them for cheap basic pieces.

I need a suit.

I have around 100-200$ to spend on a complete suit (pants and coat).

The reason I am looking is for my June Wedding. I would like to wear the same suit as my groomsmen so something that would come in sizes to fit both me (36R) and my largest groomsman (42R IIRC) preferably solid as well.

I have tried H&M, but the lack of details and pictures has made coming to a decision difficult.

I am looking for any and all suggestions as I don't want to look like a total goob at my wedding.

thanks

robbie

^Are there any Zaras in the Omaha area? Their style is pretty Euro (not much moreso than H&M), but they make good stuff. If you can spend a little more, J. Crew has some decent stuff. What kind of fabric/cut are you looking for? The prepster in me wants to recommend a seersucker or khaki-colored linen suit would be pretty sharp.

After a recess of poor-dom:

There have been a few threads on a similar topic, but the basics: in the middle of a weight trim-down (15 pounds in, 30 or 40 to go) but I've stretched as much as my old wardrobe can go--I have a couple of American Apperal polos and Tees that fit (I have a medium that's bigger than a large, further baffling my calls for a medarge size--mediums are tight and midriff me but larges are a tad too baggy for most brands).

I sunk most of my cash on a pair of jeans that should work even after I shed an inch or so off the waist [most of my weight is in my legs and upper body] and a pair of rapist boots, but I need --something-- to wear for the next year or so until I'm happy enough to buy bespoke/more expensive pieces. And between asking "I has a hemming APC NS question" and "make me not wear the same three shirts and belts." repeat questions, I've settled on the latter.

Currently residing on the west side of LA, near santa monica. Any help, detailed or broad, is warmly loved. Looking to spend ~$500 over a month or so on the temporary wardrobe.

I like this guy.

Honestly, my best advice is to just rock basic shit until you get your money up. I gained a lot of weight and cut my income roughly in half recently, so that's where I'm at. Thing is, if you just do simple and tasteful you're already ahead of like 97% of people anywhere in this country - including dat WEST SIIIIIIIDE.

I love that smug feeling I get when I'm waiting for a table or something and some clown walks by in Rock and Republics with a chick on his arm wearing Citizens or whatever. I'm just like, my jeans are so much fucking cooler than yours you wouldn't believe it if I told you.

Just buy one RO tee a month for a year. They look awesome oversized so losing weight won't be a problem. (Only half kidding, I wish I had just straight up bought RO stuff when I was first getting in to fashion as opposed to buying all these "basics" that don't fit my aesthetic at all now and that I'm desperate to sell)

I'm in the same dilemma. I've lost 20 pounds, 30 left. So what do you do? I've got plenty of MTO shirts done, that my tailor will take in when I get down to my normal weight, then, I've also been buying shoes for both streetwear and menswear. My current dilemma is this - I was going to get the SEXSC06 followed by a pair of A.P.C's or Crate, if I can get my size. Do I get them now? The SEXSC06 is on sale, at a attractive price. They will shrink in when I hot wash them, so can I wear and then hot wash when I need to bring them back in? A.P.C's do the same I'm told. Horde cash to buy later, or get things that I like now, but size them for what I'll be when I loose the weight?
