    Yeah, you're definitely right. My body has changed quite a bit over time as well and I'm a lot more muscular now but my weight has been within 15ish lbs of that.

    I do agree that I wouldn't spent a TON of money on a suit in high school. I'd probably get something I can wear off and on and then buy a better one around sophomore or junior year of college when I start applying to internships and jobs.

    Thanks guys, you have been very helpful.

    Just get something from H&M, it'll run you around $100-$150 and look really nice. Don't buy anything expensive, most of us are not same same size by the end of college as we were in high school.

    I dont want to buy anthing too expensive either, though i want it to be a bit more special than H&M suit, or am i just being stupid?

    I'd have the sleeves shortened if I was wearing that as CM blazer though.

    I think Uniqlo is a good start as well. I would read about how suits are supposed to fit (SHOULDERS! Chest, sleeves, waist, pant length, break style, etc) and then go look for something. Honestly, if you have a cheaper suit that fits well, then you'll fit in better than if you have an expensive suit with poor fit. Make sure the suit is a good color (can't go wrong with navy) and get something that fits well off the rack and can be made to fit better without costly alterations.

    I doubt the quality is the same but Urban Outfitters and Hypebeast.com sell a lot of floral shirts now.

    how to wear a floral shirt without looking like someone who's deliberately trying to gain some attention?

    It really depends on the print. I think there are tasteful floral shirts out there. I own a floral shirt and the pattern is really small and it's only really visible up close.

    Niche has some cool floral shirts. You can buy from NMWA or elsewhere. There's always Maiden Noir/ WM/ etc.

    The greatest investment you can make in a suit is a good tailor. Whatever brand you decide on, promptly go to a tailor and spend the extra money to have it altered to your body. You will thank me.

    (cross-posting from jean newbie thread)

    In terms of quality, how does Naked and Famous hold up to other brands?

    What are everyone's favorite go-to slim dress pants or chinos right now? Basically I'd wear them to work with a button-down shirt, and occasionally a blazer.

    I'd ideally like to spend < $60, but up to $100 could be ok.

    Should be:

    1. slim fitting, but not super skinny.
    2. prefer wool if possible, but may consider cotton
    3. should be crisp (not soft/wrinkly), and appropriate for work

    I've looked at banana republic, jcrew, uniqlo, lands end, etc, but none stand out to me as a great deal

    Well Epaulet is a pretty common recommendation across multiple style forums. It's a little beyond your budget, ranging from $130-$160, but definitely worth it. I bought a pair over the weekend and definitely more sturdy than the J. Crew and Uniqlo ones I was wearing previously. The sizes run super small, as a warning. I typically wear 28 at most companies, but had to size up to a 30 before I could even button it up all the way.

    Pretty sure he understood the price range and was hinting that you'll probably get a crap product if $60-100 isn't the sale price. But that's just a guess.

    28 in most places tends to be bigger than 28.
