Hi, I haven't been here very long. I'm a 22 year old college student seeking advice on how to improve my style. I'm aware of some of my current mistakes (such as baggy pants, and cheap shoes), and I would like recommendations on which elements I should focus on. I have a very limited budget, so I can't do much over $150 dollars on any one item in particular.
Here is the suit:
It might be a cheap piece of junk, but it's 100% wool, was around the $200 range, and I like the color. I bought these at Land's End from their suit separates, nearly a year ago. I basically started with this as my first suit. The old black polyester suit from my teen years doesn't count, and I only wore that to weddings and funerals. Now I wear a suit with a little bit more regularity. It might be a piece of junk, but I had to fill that gap in my wardrobe with this for the time being. To improve it, I should either have the pants taken in, or just order their tailored fit option. I didn't get the tailored fit originally because of an experience I had with their chinos being too tight, and having the pockets bulge out. Another thing that I would have done differently that particular day is to have worn a darker tie, or perhaps just a white shirt.
This is how I usually dress, often a variation of what's below (but with shirts other than blue too):
(An Old Navy brown corduroy sports jacket. It's currently my only one.)
(The jacket's just taken off, and here's one of my two v-neck sweaters. The other is tan, and I sometimes wear a tie.)
(G-1 bomber jacket: baggy, but I still wear it sometimes. It's mostly been replaced by my Wested.)
(My favorite hat that I don on occasion; a vintage Stetson from the late 1940s or '50s.)
(Wested Raiders jacket, and I'll try to get a clearer picture later)
(An old McGregor Anti-Freeze jacket I found on ebay)
Thanks, I'm open to suggestions.
