    The idea that most people here have ten brands they actually own enough pieces to judge fairly is laughable but I will play internet sartorialist:

    Paul Smith
    RRL
    Varvatos for Converse
    Anything Mauro puts out
    Post
    3sixteen
    Stronghold
    Crate
    Gap
    Rogues Gallery


    Don't own any Post or Stronghold yet but I love their aesthetic. The rest I own and love. I don't buy PS but once a year but it's my favorite purchase every year.

    There are tons of women's lines I would put over just about all of these.

    I think the "right now" part points to it more being present infatuation.

    I thought lookbook was basically a site dedicated only to WAYWT.

    I'll tell her to check out fashion spot. Kind of funny that there isn't an SF equivalent for women since the general population likes clothes and fashion more than guys do.

    I don't really have a top 10 list, but some of the brands on my list are there only because they have certain items that I always go to that brand for.


    Paul Smith - I only own a few pairs of boots and shoes, but I love them.
    Banana Republic - their fitted tees are a perfect for me.
    Gitman Bros Vintage - Their shirts are a great fit on me. They're slim without being constricting and I love the collars.
    Common Projects - While I think they are way overpriced, the achilles and court shoe models are some of the best sneakers around.
    Uniqlo - I spend more money here than anywhere else.
    Jcrew - I would love this store more if their button downs fit me, but their urban slim fit chinos are awesome and a great value on sale.
    ToJ - Love my varsity and as soon as I have some spending money, I'll be making more purchases.
    KMW - love my rockers.
    APC - new cure is a great cut, and i love the dirty fade APCs eventually achieve. Don't care too much for the clothes.
    Filson - use my briefcase almost daily.

    In order....

    1. Mr. Olive
    I find Mr. Olive to be fantastic for denim, shorts, sweaters, hoodies, outerwear, and leather goods.

    2. Lad Musician
    I love Lad Musician for their well fitting high quality tees-- I have tried a lot of other brands and none of them look better on me than Lad. Also, Lad's fabric quality is second to none and puts W+H tees to shame.

    3. W+H
    I like W+H shirts and outerwear, but I have never had very good luck with their bottoms. All of their shorts and pants seem to baggy in the thighs relative to a tight fitting brand like Mr. Olive.

    4. MofM
    This brand has some very interesting tees due to how they constantly very their fabric blends with each season. Many of their tees often contain a blend of something like silk, rayon, or even wool sometimes.

    5. Julius
    Have only ever bought the pants from Julius. I think their shirts look too unusual, but I really like the fit and look some of their pants. You can definitely wear some of this stuff without looking like a goth ninja. Many of their bags and leather jackets are very nice too.
