    Hey guys, I was hoping you all could help me. I will be starting my second year in college and I want to kind of have a makeover (I guess that's what I should say?). Basically, I just want to find out what style is right for me, how I should dress.

    A little about me.
    I'm a 19 year-old college track and field distance runner, so naturally I'm skinny. I am 6'4, 160 pounds. Basically, in the summer I wear cacky shorts with a pair of nice Nike running shoes or leather flip flops and a t-shirt (usally an old running t-shirt that I got for free at some road race). In the winter I wear jeans (my fav) and a long sleeve running shirt. Also, I usually wear my fav red hat...backwards.

    Here's the problem. I feel that I have no style and when I go dancing in the clubs I don't stand out(I usually just wear a button up dress shirt from hollister with the sleeves rolled up a little with jeans).

    I don't know what type of jeans to buy...baggy or skinny ones, (I HATE the bootcut ones....def not an option).

    I don't know what type of shirts to buy...polo, button up, tshirts or what?

    I don't know what type of shoes to buy, nice dress ones or what?

    I need all of this for everyday wearing around while going to class, the store, out to the clubs, etc. Money isn't much of a problem. I come from a wealthy family so I can pretty much afford whatever clothes are reccommened. I really want to figure out what size and style of clothes to buy before I head back to school in 2 months, so any help is GREATLY appericated.

    Thanks in advance!

    My advice would be to stick around here for a while and read the Streetwear subforum. Check out the "Post pics of what you're wearing" thread. You'll get an idea of the various directions to go in, so that you can choose what style suits you best.

    Where are you? If you're near to a larger city we can give you an idea of some places to shop around. If you can afford it, I probably wouldn't shop at Hollister, AF, AE, and such.

    A more quick and dirty answer:
    1. Skinny (ish)

    2. All of the above. Just make sure the damn things fit

    3. There are essentially four routes to go here: boots, dress shoes, Chuck Taylors, and Y-3 type sneakers. In other words nix the running shoes unless you're working out.

    For club wear, I'd go with some slim dark jeans (e.g. APC) or dark wool pants (e.g. Incotex), a dress shirt- not from Hollister, ideally, and black dress shoes (not square toe).

    Do you think our INCOMPETENT WEBMASTER can do it? I heard he's mainly concentrating on eliminating beautiful spamming threads about products I absolutely need.
