Clearly you need to wax them.

I recall reading some twenty-plus years ago that the only real benefit of shaved legs for cyclists was less painful removal of bandages for the inevitable road rash and less pulling on the skin when getting post-ride massages.

That first site might want to consider how it models its socks...


You mean because of the extreme heel gap? I know, right?

Good morning good folk of this thread, I was advised by a member of StyleForum a Mr.TweedyProf to come here and ask for your expert guidance in helping me in updating my wardrobe mostly with a classic casual look, now I myself have been looking around the web for many articles of clothing and found a good number which I like the thing is I am unsure if I should proceed in buying them.

 

Furthermore  I wanted to inquire about brands, I am thinking of selecting three base brands which will be my source of completing mu outfits, these I would call fillers, as they will be filling up my outfit in a nice way to compliment the more high end piece i'm wearing.

It will help to know more about your situation and the environments in which you'll find yourself.

Well just finished high school, on a gap year before uni, I work at a fashion retailer. As environments go the latter speaks for itself, regarding what  i do based on my age. I can add that I'm a church going individual and go out on occasions, but not to the places most individuals my age go to, i prefer coffee shops, restaurants and strolls through parks over Clubbing, drugs and alcohol. I digress, I cannot think of anything else to add, apologies for it being basic.

 

Thanks for the reply Ac,

 

Daniel

Your post has a really strong hipster/NiceGuy vibe, lol.

What price range? NMWA has some nice stuff on higher end but quite a few regulars on this thread use uniqlo for basics.

And to finish off the previous discussion, I shave my legs, but only when I'm wearing skirts without leggings.
post #31045 of 37392

To be honest, I'd like to classify myself as a nice guy, and people do tell me that, but then at the same time i don't feel like a nice guy. I have looked into places like NMWA i will definitely be buying a few pieces, what can i say, they are truly something special. Other places i'd buy from would be Unionmade, Imogene + Willie, Context clothing,The Armoury, Styleforums marketplace and Grailed.

 

To conclude, I'd say the ones stated above would be my main source of the inspiration pieces, garments which I would build around. So my filler brand budget would be in the range of something like uniqlo or even a tad more pricey.

Nah, a hard glazing sealant is the latest tits. Add shark skin shaped micro particles into the mix and you are gold...
(I should patent this right now...)

I'd use Uniqlo and Luxire.

You must not confuse nice guy with "Nice Guy". The latter is someone who thinks he's nice and is in reality a self pitying, bitter, self righteous, and self obsessed fool. Be wary of the whole "I'm not like other guys" thing it rings alarm bells for people. Let actions speak. Not meant to criticise you just alerting you to the fact of how some would associate with the way you phrase things.

Thanks for the reply Isolation, a good way to put it, and you are right to an extent, I shall be wary, actions do speak louder than words, and being a man of action is one of my goals in life. Constructive criticism is vital in ones becoming something better, and shedding the skin of old habit and being reborn. I welcome it, and yours was well put not to offend but to enlighten. 

 

Thank you for your help in helping me out with the brands, I'm going to check them out right now!

So what, for example, would a typical work outfit be like for you?  A typical church outfit?

 

And what's your approximate budget?

 

Cheers,

 

Ac

post #31050 of 37392

A typical church outfit, a suit generally as it is very formal but sport coats and elegant jackets with pants are also very acceptable. 

 

Approximate budget for an outfit, would be 800 USD.

 

Thanks for getting back to me Ac
