Classic styling

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey, I posted a question like this on the old site with a mixed reaction. I love 50's style, like L.A Confidential and Ocean's 11 for suits, and the 50's style shirts with a spread collar and jeans or some chinos or slacks. I would like to know where I can find vintage-y looking stuff. I already look at second hand stores but there is usually a limited selection of stuff that fits me, since I'm sort of tall. I've heard that Club Monaco makes some hip stuff. How are their prices? I'm a cheap, poor college student who doesn't want to look like a bum. I know Swingers came out 7 years ago and all that jazz, so I don't need a lecture on how I'm not going to bring the style back. I'm not trying to. It's just the style I like. I'd apreciate any help I could get.

The look you are going for is cigarette style pants with an untucked french cuff shirt (leave the cuffs undone or just button the inner cuff, tre cool). As I stated before on the other board, Club Monacco does make some nice shirts in this style. I just bought one for $80 give or take. You may also want to try Sisley or Bennaton. If you are in NYC, you should also stop by Zara. Great clothes.

I posted this on the other site, but I'll put it here as well for anyone who didn't see. I have some great 50's retro camp shirts from Ben Sherman. They have fun details like top stitching on the breast pocket and (I don't know what to call them) cuff-like things on the sleeves. They also have a placket covering the buttons down the front, so they look buttonless (is that the term?) They are nice fabric, and reasonably priced - about $60 each. I found them at the Jennifer Croll boutique here in Scottsdale and I believe she also has a store in San Francisco. I'm sure other places carry them as well. Bradford
