ok so before you chastise me for for posting a beaten to death topic, hear me out a bit. I've spent the past year since graduating college working at a jewelry company working a marketing and sales role. My dress usually would consist of suits and nothing less. I grew to love it, fell in love with looking good and dressed up and built a solid wardrobe. OK TO THE PROBLEM: Just moved to Scottsdale from LA for a job I got with Yelp. The company is only 6 years old - young. As a result, the people that work there are very young as well. Most of my managers are around 25-28 and most of the people in my 200 person office is in their 20's. The company itself is very serious, but the demeanor and culture is very laid back and casual... Most of the people working there wear T-shirts or maybe a button down shirt un-tucked. Most of my managers wear dress pants that have no crease - the non suite variety with a dress shirt (usually casually styled) tucked in. No ties, sometimes their sleeves are rolled up, and nothing too fancy. I need to be pointed in the direction of those dress pants and MORE dress shirts but within a budget. Those dress pants are almost like those Express Producer Pants but seemingly better quality. I am looking to definitely keep them under $100 being that my salary is still not huge and I have many bills to pay for. Same with the dress shirts - I have a good collection that are OK to wear at my new look job but I could use a few more. Need socks and shoes too... for shoes, I was thinking of getting some AE's more away from the Park Avenue look and more of the casual look. Recommendations of any brand or any shoe would be very welcomed. IN A NUTSHELL: New job, borderline of business casual and casual (some kids are wearing t shirts to work). Looking for some dress pants, shirts, socks, and even shoes at BUDGET prices that would fit in a more hip/less formal culture. Any help or suggestions would be very appreciated!
