Doing what reedo is doing but heading down the insatiable hyperconsumerist pretentious throat of SZ artisanal anatomic buzzword whatever. Please tell me there is an end.

 

That said I'm really liking Devoa's stuff and some of the Collateral Concepts pieces look great. Maybe find some BBS or something.

Dude, that path is even tougher. Talk about pricey, I'd have to have a 6 figure job for a full wardrobe

This is why I read through the contentedness thread every once in a while.

Really inspires me how some people can put cheap shit together and still look good.

Comfortable ts, slim jeans, old sneakers.

I'm in a minimalizing phase right now.

IMO, if you have a nice face, nice skin and a fit, toned body, classic simple clothes will bring out the best. no need to go overboard and spend on the latest whatever.

Buy almost everything on sale / 1 season ago concept. Fresh graduate salary + living on my own means I can't just max out cards on japanese proxies anymore.

My style is pretty scattered at the moment....In the last year I've moved further away from the more structured classic Americana mixed with street wear look, towards a looser and layered aesthetic, geared for comfort. I'm still finding it hard to shake my street wear influenced roots though.....baby steps lol.

As for colour pretty much black and grey....it's just find it easier to build a more congruent wardrobe with a limited colour palette.

Whatever, it's fun to work slowly towards something I know will be worth it in the end

I'm in the same boat, just like many other newer members here.

I never went fully in on the workwear though. Found SF pretty soon after I started to buy more so I hadn't aquired a full wardrobe. Very thankful for that now.

It really helps if you plan all your purchases. Never pay retail on expensive stuff and only buy basics from brands like Uniqlo. You may find the perfect SS cardigan which you know will sell out instantly on retail, but it's just better to wait if you don't have a lot money. Good pieces can always be found later and coming collections will have just as good/better pieces.

Other than that, it's less colour, buying clothes I know I will wear and letting it take its time.

what do people mean when they refer to 'workwear' here?

Back in early high school I was a rapper so I was wearing baggy 26 Reds, anyone remember them? They just disappeared! Baggy shirts and jackets.
I'm 26 now and wear casual/ casual "smart" clothes. I've never tried skinny jeans and don't plan to. My fav brand is A&F, they have the comfiest clothes and I guess that would be my style.
I don't own a suit, if I go out and the weathers right I'll wear jeans, a plain shirt under a button up shirt and a nice jacket. I love grey, navy, black, olive and red colours.

Denim. Boots. Flannel

At this moment I think most of my stuff is in the streetwear biker section. I´d like to add some more "formal" streetwear to my wardrobe. I only have one blazer and one pair of boots. I think some tailored trousers, one more blazer, more knitwear (a sweater and a cardigan at least) and some side zips would get me closer to where I wanna be right now.

That's when designers stop designing or we run out money, whichever comes first.

When I think of "workwear" in the SF context it means the Heritage revival: military and hunting inspired stuff, Japanese repro denim, replica army jackets, pea coats, artisanal leather goods, pendleton style shirts, engineer boots, Made in America stuff like oxford shirts from Mercer or Gitman, mocassins from Quoddy, Filson bags, etc. I'd also put designer versions of this stuff like Engineered Garments or Junya Watanabe into this category.
