Interloper, Yeah, as a straight guy, and west-coast besides, I tend to shy away from flamboyant designers like Galliano and Stefano and Domenico. I guess that I would describe my style as downtown/funky/relaxed. I tend to stock my wardrobe with lots of basics with a twist from designers like Burberry, Jil Sander, Marc Jacobs, and Armani, and choose accent pieces from Custo, Costume National, Paul Smith, Miu miu and Prada. I also like funky streetwear, and so in addition to wearing cult or underground streetwear designers like Dirty Youth and Dirk Schonberger, I have lots of one off pieces from street festivals, Venice-Beach vendors, the bottom of thrift shop bins, etc... BTW, contrary to the wisdom that sale racks usually are full of terrible clothing that no one wants, I look at sale/clearance racks as the best clothes distilled, and then put on sale, because so many people have such poor/unadventurous taste and the best stuff often gets short shrift. Put it this way, count the number of guys (American, European, Asian, etc...) do you see walking around in the tragic 3/4 length black leather jacket (perhaps the best ever way to advertise mediocre taste), shiny fitted shirt and black pants, black shoes outfit.
