Starting a summer law firm job in a few weeks and have a few questions. The summer dress code is relaxed to shirt and pants except on days when you are going to court. I stopped by the local mens store and they said it would be better to spend my limited budget on pants over shirt (they showed me a few pairs of Coppley for close to $200). The problem I face with dress shirts is that I live in Saskatchewan and don't have access to great sales to find good quality on sale, so I am limited to moores, tiptop, the bay, winners, or anything decent on the sales rack at local mens stores. Would anyone give me some advice on the best way to stretch my budget for the summer on pants and shirts and maybe some brands to look for.
Look at Charles Tyrwhitt shirts online, they go on sale all of the time.
Any suggestions where I can find extra slimfit jeans?
You should probably ask in the Streetwear & Denim thread, but Cheap Mondays make some really slim ones for, well, cheap.
Shirts: As already mentioned, Tyrwhitt shirts are always on sale - if you have an AMEX card, you can buy their shirts (with a free tie & free shipping) for $39.50 each here: http://www.ctshirts.co.uk/Default.aspx?q=windsor|||||||||||||||. TM Lewin is comparable quality and also always has sales running - right now it is 4 for 90 pounds (or ~$150). Brooks Brothers is also around the same class / a small step up, and they have their 3 for $199 deals for their standard line (i.e., not luxury). Harvie and Hudson is higher quality then all these listed, and you can get 3 of those for about $72 each (minus shipping).
Pants: If you like slim pants, I love the Brooks Brothers Milano Chinos - not wool, but a 'dressy cotton' that feels great. I'm assuming their other chinos (Clark, Regent) are just as nice. I love my Incotex and Mabitex (~100 each on the B/S for wool), but they are very slim. It's too bad you only have a few weeks, or I'd advise you to just continue to check the B/S forum for some good deals.
I'd say this: especially for pants, make sure you know your measurements. Expensive, high-end clothing still doesn't look great on people if it doesn't fit well.
does anyone know where can i buy shoes like this, or at least similar shoes?
I need a slim, white dress shirt or tuxedo shirt by saturday (It's for my prom, the shirt that came with the rental tux is enormous, and I have no white shirts). I'm fine with it falling apart after one wash, it just needs to be inexpensive. Any suggestions?
I think anywhere these days.
Charles Tyrwhitt, Ralph Lauren, Brooks Brothers...
i'm from Croatia, and i was looking on many places in my country and didn't find any similar to this one, where can i find them online?
do you have suggestion where can i find it online?
Yes. Dirty bucks are a great casual shoe, wear 'em with jeans, khakis, or sockless with shorts in summer. Or a summer suit.
Check out places like Burlington, Ross, TJ Maxx or the clearance sections in department stores. Im sure you'll be able to find a slim-fit white shirt for ~$15 that should last atleast one wear. Good luck and have fun...
Hi there, new here to styleforum. I need a new suit for weddings and general business wear. I do not feel very comfortable in the very slick salesperson suits that you tend to get dressed in if you go into your local suitshop (At least here in the North West UK) As I mentioned I am a NOOB, but I do know that I want something different from the standard suit. I'd like it to be slightly more sporty (should be wearable without a tie) and preferably in a bit of a funky slim fit (secretly I love 70s suits, but I don't think I could away with this anymore). What are good places to buy a decent suit in the Northwest of England (I live in Cumbria) that have styles that are a bit 'out there' and that can dress you up decently? Price range is more or less up to £400/ £500 so probably off the peg. Thanks!
