For basics, would you guys recommend american apparel, or alternative apparel?
I would like a slim straight look, but I want to avoid button fly jeans as they are not my thing. I figured the redwing GT's would fit my style. Do the GT's fair well in the winter or are they for more late winter/early fall?
There are things called overshoes I think? Not 100% but they're basically rubber slip ons that you put over your dress shoes to protect them from the rain and snow. Worth looking into.
Basics = anything. AA (both) are good but then again if GAP or Old Navy fits you then go with that.
As for GTs I don't know, I don't have a pair. I am basically regurgitating simple advice from the entirety of the SF forum.
