For all the sarcasm I still think the circa 2008 SF uniform is a good starting point. At least get some basics that fit.

^those vans are fine.

Since you don't really have a direction, my advice is to go look at various fashion shows over the last few years, and figure out what you like. Then figure out why you like it. Then try to move your style in that direction with thought-out purchases.

some popular forum choices over the last couple of years that might be good places to start (but if you don't like it just look at other random shows: Wings+Horns, Patrik Ervell etc. Key is to find what you like.


And yeah, as Jet says, Uniqlo is your friend, i wish i lived near one.

Maybe it's because you have your hangs in your pockets and that's throwing off your look a bit, but I think you could use a slimmer pant. Something like this seen here:

As for your sweater, it might look better with a coat over it. I know that sounds like I'm insulting your sweater, but I think a coat would tie things together a bit more.

I'll check out some of those shows for sure. I've saved some of the fits on here that I've really liked (shit that makes me sound like a mad creeper) and they all seem to be workwear-esque. I'd like to not fall into that though as it seems played out right now and as a college kid I'm not actually out working in my workwear.

Yeah the hands make it look bad. But I'm glad you made the comment about the slimmer pants. I generally wear pretty slim jeans, so hopefully when I post a fit with those it will look better. I'm probably going to pick up some slimmer chinos too as these are a little baggy for my tastes as well. What kind of coat do you think would look good? I had a black snowboarding coat on (it was cold today) but didn't take any fit pics with it as they didn't come out well).

Mike, it's winter. Don't buy white sneakers right now. Trust me on this one - I have a lot of white sneakers. Buy those vans (or CP's, or whatever you decide on) this summer and wear them with cutoff shorts and drink punch and dance with girls and don't even think about it. Right now, 'tis the season for jeans and boots. Lurk B+S, there are some really good deals, and most of the sellers here are stand-up gents. Buy boots instead. Buy slimmer pants, as well. Buy a slimmer sweater, if you like, because that one doesn't look good - American Eagle?. There's a thread with recommendations for pants, one for boots, and one for shoes. Follow Hendrix's advice. And get rid of the pumas. There are lots of "non-ballers" on SF (dislike the phrase) who look incredibly good on a very regular basis, so don't worry about that. Right now it looks like nothing fits you, which could be because it doesn't, or it could be because of the freshman 15. Either way, the better you look naked, the better you'll look in clothes. Nothing wrong with uniqlo janwz, boots, and a sweater + coat when you're a student, as long as it fits you. People are gonna tell you to buy margiela, RO, whatever - don't, unless you're sure you want it. The internet is a dangerous place, and nothing will look good until you learn what looks good on you. Also - I would think about growing your hair out.

Bad workwear (Red Wings, chambray everything etc etc) was just as bad 2 years ago as it is now. The good shit remains just as good now as it was back then. If you like it, do it.

thanks for clarification. Elf fit crushes current fit.

people are giving you good advice.
