    All those contributing please list your favorite cheap clothes. Try to think beyond H&M, Uniqlo and AA.

    In the past two years I have fallen in love with Wino's/Zig-Zags. Hard to get much variety outside of LA (that I have found) but this is an example : http://www.skateworks.com/store/index.php?cPath=77_84 They are available in all sorts of color and hi-top/lo-top combinations and can be had for anywhere between 12 and 20 dollars, which means it doesn't matter if they fall apart in 5 months.

    I also really like my yellow PVC shell from Helly Hansen. I spend a lot of time on the water around the Northwest and have found this to be perfect for the job. Normally $30 but I got mine marked off http://www.hellyhansengear.com/A-Ser..._p_51-278.html

    Anybody else find themselves inexplicably liking some really cheap clothes?

    Does clothes on sale count? Because my favorite are Original Penguin when on sale, about $20-$25 for a pair of pants that retailed for $90-$110.

    SuperBobo:We already have a thrift store bragging thread. Try to keep it to new stuff that just happens to be really cheap. The more I think about it, I will not be surprised at all if this thread goes nowhere.

    I'm going to assume full-price because thift/sale items is too easy. Still, there are too many to count ...

    Old Navy thin sweatshirts: $20
    Target's Champion C9 athletic line: $10
    Starbury sneakers: $8!
    Wool Glittens: $10
    Russell Athletic sweatshirts: $20

    Old Navy seems to get a fair selection of good shirts on occasion, though I didn't see much of anything this past summer.

    Otherwise CostCo (Kirkland Signature) for boxers and white t-shirts.

    ^^ the colors suck though. Wranglers raw denim shirts are nice...

    Carhartt is far nicer when it comes to fabrics than say wrangler imo.

    Do you know anywhere else online I could find the hightops in different color schemes other than the black? I'm a sucker for cheap shitty sneakers.

    Islander Sandals, for the beach and kicking around the house. They're a little more expensive now, but the last time I was in the Philippines I was able to snag five pairs for US$5 each.

    I don't. I'll pm you the other places that I know of that sell them online and you might be able to email or call them and ask if they have anything else in stock. I either get mine in LA or have my sister send me them. She just sent me some awesome light khaki hi-tops with a brown sole that look like canvas desert boots. I have heard that the company that makes them is a little inconsistent so retailers are never entirely sure what exact merchandise will be arriving.
