Hi everyone, my name is Nick and this is my first post here on SF. I stumbled across the forums here while looking around for what to wear for the new job I just landed, and it seems that there is a vast wealth of knowledge held by the members here. So my problem lies in that I have next to nothing to wear for an everyday business casual dress code type of job, as I have worked in the oil fields for the past 5 years. I have now moved into an office setting in the same industry where, like I said, the attire is business casual (no jacket/coat or tie required),
I have about a $1500 budget to work with, and I need everything; shoes, socks, shirts, undershirts, slacks/pants, and belts. I am lucky in that I have a fairly decent selection of fragrances so no needs there at the moment. I am guessing that I will need at least two pairs of shoes to start (black and brown?), and have liked what Allen Edmonds has to offer. I am a fairly big, 28 year old guy at 6'4 265 lbs, 48' chest, and 36" waist so I know that I should have tailored whatever shirts I do get. I live in Bakersfield, Ca., and the shopping here is limited to a Macy's, Patrick James, Banana Republic, and a few boutique style shops downtown. I am able to travel about an hour or so south and be in Valencia, Ventura, Los Angeles, etc. and obviously would have better luck down there. All that being said, what would you gentlemen recommend? As I am new, and fairly clueless when it comes to this, any and all help is extremely appreciated!
