Not so sure what type of sweaters would suit you....im stumped.
I made a bad connection, and kinda generalized, sorry. But most of the stuff I see from niche brands mentioned on this forum are bootcut or slim-fit, or tapered, or too straight, have pockets in weird places, weird ripples on the backs of the knees, etc.. I am not comfortable wearing stuff like that.. I looked for a long time for a 7 for all mankind style that I liked, but didn't find anything that fit quite right. The washes were nice, but the shape was off. FWIW, I'm also not very much into the big baggy jeans that I see most people wear when I'm not at school, but I've already said these things.
I think I posted an example of a style I like in another thread, so if you've seen it, then you may have an idea of what I have in mind. And to be clear, I care more about the fit of a pair of jeans (fit to my liking, not fit as in skinny, and perfectly formed to my body) than who made it. So if there is an APC or Rock&Republic jeans that meets my criteria for a reasonable price, then I'll get it.
I probably sound confused, uncertain, indecisive, etc.. and that because I am. I'm not sure of what I'm doing yet (I have no freaking clue). I'm trying to look trendy/fashionable/etc, and I'll wear what accomplishes that objective, but at the same time I know that there are certain type/fits/etc of clothing that I won't wear FOR ANY REASON. So its like I'm trying to just look at the trendy stuff that's recommended to me, to check if I like it. If I like what someone suggests, and its fashionable (i'm assuming that the stuff recommended is fashionable), then I'll buy it. If there is something "off" about it, in my eye, then I won't bother.
