Hi, I'm new to the forums but I've lurked around and found that the posters on this site are witty and highly fashionable so i've come here for help.
Long story short, I got a job as a host at this high end sushi restaurant that becomes kinda cool and hip during late night happy hour. I don't know what to wear, what to buy or where to get the clothes I need. I was thinking along the lines of vests, gray or black dress pants, slim fit shirts, bow ties, ties, pocket squares, a watch, a necklace (too much?), suspenders, and shoes. My goal is to look good at and outside of work.
Background: I'm 6 feet tall, slim/skinny, just graduated college this summer (i.e, pretty broke), and living in california where there's pretty much no seasons and it's warm out all the time.
As I mentioned above, i lurked around and found that a lot of people here like CW and Brooks Brothers for shirts? I guess i'll start my search there.
Thank you so much in advance. I look forward to all the advice and knowledge you guys have to offer
EDIT: Wow guys, I didn't expect so many responses! Thank you so much, even the sarcastic posts were funny to read.
So to answer a few questions, most clients/customers that come in are upper middle class and are dressed in nice casual clothes during dinner and often business casual during lunch. I think since we're in Southern California, people are often dressed in more relaxed attire when going out to eat.
My manager told me to look good... no real details except to not wear jeans (though i think that wearing a nice button up with a blazer and dark fitted jeans would be okay).
I also work in San Diego so it's always warm here, so I'm trying to avoid layering (even though I love it) because I don't want to look like a sweaty pig.
And yes, I do martial arts and I am of mostly Asian descent
I'll post up pictures of some of the clothes I got soon!
