    Bought a pair of $15 canvas sneakers from H&M five years ago thinking it would last me a summer at the beach. They're still holding up surprisingly well considering (or because) I've machine washed them several times. Best cheap item I've bought in recent memory...

    Go ballers...

    Some discontinued $5 iZod shorts. Pretty much been my favorite summer item. I have also been pretty pleased with the fit of the $25 OCBD's from LE Canvas.

    This thread will raise the ire of the ballin' gods.

    Regardless, my leather Purcells have been my go-to shoe the last two summers. I've also gotten extensive use out of pretty much any Uniqlo shirts.

    oxfords from LE Canvas along with their t-shirts. Cheap but nice fabric and decent fit for me.

    $3 V neck grey t-shirt from H&M with chest pocket (on sale). I got it like 5 years ago and it is still the best fitting tee I have ever owned. It is the right weight (not too heavy or too thin). I deeply regret only getting one because I never found the exact same shirt again from there. If I could back in time I would have purchased 25 and be set for life.
