Cheap stuff/clothing that you enjoy - Page 3

post #31 of 38
ecco - cheap, comfortable, resilient beater shoes for bad weather, long walks and other situations where style is not the primary consideration.

quilted barbour jackets - not all that cheap, for what they are, but i get about the same amount of compliments when wearing barbour as kiton.

J.Crew casual pants.

^I like the J. Crew 5-pocket cords for casual wear, but especially when they hit $20 or so. Old Navy's cotton-linen shirts can be nice for summer, though some years' are better than others. Linen, in general, is one of those cloths that can look good done up in a somewhat rustic fashion. Some high-dollar linen shirts look too refined for their own good, I think. The phrase "better than the cloth deserves" comes to mind. The previously mentioned Gold Toe socks have held up better than many of my more expensive pairs. LL Bean's wool V-neck sweater vests look great layered under tweedy sportcoats. Lands' End's flannel tattersalls are a fall and winter favorite.

You need more experience with clothes not everything is guaged for quality or hold up by how many holes appear or how quickly a hole appears.

How it holds up at the seams, the length of fiber (pilling ), discoloration or warping or awkward shrinking of cloth after wash, etc are all aspects of a mediocre quality item.

For example
I had a b.son cotton peacoat once. After wearing it for half dozen wears (and I don't wear my clothes hard at all) it started already pilling and eroding and loose strings everywhere. And it got all stretched out of shape and I don't know why it did.

Uniqlo boxers. Best deal out there and well made.

Levis jeans; a brand I grew up with. (I haven't a clue about modern designer denim at all) Kodiak construction boots (probably now vintage). Old Navy hoodie pullover (with Old Gravy stains to match). TIME magazine quartz watch. Plain white or colored T-shirts. (found at any downtown street vendor for $3 per shirt.) Cheap sneakers from any discontinued 'Bin-O-Shoes' Where is the WCSAYWT (What Cheap Stuff Are You Wearing Today) thread? This could be fun.

Clan MacGreggor. I wish my clan had a whisky.

Yes! I bought several pairs of J.Crew cords this season for $29 that were originally $69. For me they have good enough quality and a perfect fit.
