    -Uniqlo fleece jackets (friggin cool pattern and colors)
    -Champion athletic socks
    -Asics running shoes
    -Beater pair of Clarks desert boot
    -Functional and nice looking quartz watch from Sharper Image (purchased in 1991)

    AA and UO?

    I also have t-shirts from Old Navy that's hold up remarkably well given the abuse

    A is American Apparel and UO is Urban Outfitters. yeah old navy holds up well ( i have a few from old days) but i dont like their cut. and they shrink awkwardly from my experience.

    Silk mock turtle-necks and round neck long-sleeve sweaters (not sure if "sweater" is the right word as they are thicker than a t-shirt, but thinner than a typical sweater) from Men's Warehouse. Decent quality, interesting colors and reasonably priced when on sale.

    The cheapest things that I enjoy are StyleForvm and any social event with an open bar.

    Oh, and Aldens.

    I also enjoy the over-the-calf cotton argyle socks from Jo. A. Banks. They have held up remarkabley well.

    Is she Chinese? 'cause that's a big NO-NO on this board.

    Have a couple of Lord & Taylor private label (Grant Thomas) wool sweaters that have surprisingly held up quite well.
