post #4576 of 4947

I'm going into my senior year... need to start building my wardrobe a bit



Measurements to help recommend brands/shopping techniques:

 

Hope this helps a bit.

height: 5'8"
waist: 32.5in
ass: 41in
quads: 23in
chest: 39

I have pretty bad keratosis pilaris on my arms... It's annoying, but i'm not going to totally plan my whole outfits off of that inconvience

finding clothes that fit is... tough

 

Any suggestions on the basics I need to get for casual wear?

Where's this shirt from? This is exactly what I'm looking for at the moment, even though it's a simple V-neck.

Recommendations for slim dark black/overdyed black jeans? Need around a 6.5-6.75 leg opening for 30-31 waist. Can be raw or non-raw.

It looks like Alternative Apparel.

Well those MAY not be your best bet... IDK if you're looking for standard wingtips or are less picky about it but those my friend are longwings, which are a little bit less standard. For a day-to-day beat-em-up shoe longwings might not be the look you're going for since they are a bit odd. that being said, here's an option for standard wingtips:

Rubber soles like you were looking for. might work out for you

 

Cheers

Can anyone recommend what type of t-shirt and shirts can go with this cardigan, sweater and jacket. I know a white shirt and tee would work with it also dark color jeans and light jeans color for the cardigan. Also any idea of what type of pants I can wear with those. Pics are below, can design shirts such as pinstripe checker work ? Thanks.

Hey, i have a sweater, a cardigan and jacket and was wondering what you guys recommend would match color shirt or t-shirt would match with them Pics below. I have the jeans and shoes/sneakers part down, but not the top part. So any recommendations? I know a solid white shirt and tee would go with them. Thanks for the recommendations.

Please recommend me a cheap (but decent quality) blazer (sport coat)?

Blazer usually denotes the traditional navy blue blazer. Is that what you want or something made by a designer? If the former start by looking at Epaulet, the latter look at Dries, Margiela, Lanvin etc. No clue what your budget is (cheap means between $99-$800 on this board depending on who it is). Also, if you're really looking for a traditional blue blazer you should be looking at the mens clothing side of the forum as well.

Maybe blazer wasn't the correct wording. Unstructured jacket? Something I can wear over a t-shirt or BD shirt.

I hate to seem like a fanboy (what with posting the same store twice in one thread)  but

Unfortunately my friend, you picked the wrong time of year to be looking for anything unstructured. All the summer stuff just went out, all the heavier wool/herringbone stuff is coming in for the fall/winter season. You could browse around the sale sections of other sites, such as brooks brothers, and i know Gap has a line of unstructured blazers (though the verdict on the quality appears to be less than stellar), but as of right now, this is the best you're probably looking at, at least for a fairly low price point (unless you're a little guy like me, then you may have some luck in the children's section at Ralph Lauren or Brooks Brothers, you'd be sur[rised how big those youth XXL's can get). Had one of the J. Crew ones myself in khaki, and they seem to run true to size/slightly large but the quality is pretty good. certainly worth a look.

^ The new Jcrew stuff goes pretty hard. Not sure about the quality of everything, but a lot of it looks really nice
