I am new to this forum, and i joined for one reason. I am twenty years old, and am sort of moving on from the classic teenager Abercrombie/Hollister look. I need suggestions on classy, more adult looking, yet "cool" brands. I am willing to spend extra money, but not the hundreds that Armani asks for a plaid shirt. I have looked around at Express, and notice they have high class clothing, but i want that 'edge', a clothing line that stands out to people. Suggestions? I would buy clothes such as Dolce and Gabanna, or Armani, but that style seems to be centered more around a middle aged class. Ideas?

Please don't make the very common mistake of equating dressing up with dressing well.

And to get this out of the way:

You're young, fuck it and spend the money on beer and girls.

I've found no single brand can take care of you. Just keep an eye out on forums like this, hype, sufu, and other fashion related sites to keep an eye out for things that stand out to you. Because in the end, the whole world might like something but if it doesn't appeal to you, it's not worth it.
