My mom got me a subscription to GQ as a surprise recently. At least she tries.

I have a summer job interview at J.Crew later this week. Any thoughts on what to wear without looking like I'm trying too hard?

T-shirt, shorts, and sandals?

There's nothing sexier than a blazer, a tie, and jeans. And yet most men can't put it together; they either end up with a suit and tie or jeans and T-shirt. Try taking half from one look and half from the other. Chances are you'll get something a little bit cooler.

4.
A pressed shirt signals work mode. But a washed-cotton shirt automatically makes you feel more touchable, more approachable. It's effortless. However, if everything is washed"”that's not interesting. When washed is paired with a blazer and a tie, it looks amazing.


6.
Get dressed, then change one element. With a suit, wear a pair of Converse, or take off your dress shirt and put on a chambray button-down instead. You can also do the reverse. Try khakis rolled up with wingtips. Tweaking one thing is an easy way for guys to modernize an outfit, even if they don't know what the hell they're doing.

Why is everyone so enamored with this mediocre brand by providing a 91 page tribute to it? Yes, it's better than most stuff available in the malls. Yes, their photographers and stylists are really good at what they do-- everything looks so effortless and relaxed. However, nearly everything is so-so quality at best. Additionally, most of their clothing is very blocky and shaped like a square, as if it was designed for someone trying to hide a beer belly. Every item I've bought from J. Crew I either sent back or ultimately regretted keeping. The garments always looked far better in the pictures vs. what I actually received. And when I try them on, they never look as good on me as any of their models. Yet, most stuff I order from more expensive brands looks just as good on me as it does on the models. Remember the picture on the J. Crew web site with the visible clothespin being used to hide the excess fabric? This explains a lot. It is as if they are trying to sell an image of well tailored, trim fitting clothing to overweight Americans. They know the well tailored look is better for selling things. But the actual product is designed differently than pictured so the average guy (whom feels most comfortable in baggy, blocky clothing) will be happy when he tries it on. I suppose J. Crew has its place for some whom don't know any better, but this is styleforum and I would think people would spend a bit more effort looking for better alternatives than whatever the most heavily advertised brand is that just happens to provide a reasonable look. I still really want to like J. Crew, but they won't let me. It is the difference between their image and reality.

In reality there are only about 15-20 people actively participating in this thread.
