    Ouch! I didn't realize you guys were so well dressed at 17. Do any of you have pictures to share of what you were wearing during your senior year?

    I'm sure a lot of people were guilty at your age, of wearing clothes from shit mall brands, or of lesser quality, or with bad fits, etc.

    I'll at least admit to it. But even though you just got roasted (and rightfully so), don't take it personally. Theres actually been some decent advice pushed on you. Too many stripes. Poor color choices (together at least), poor jean fit/wash, less than desireable shoe choice, need haircut, could stand to drop a few pounds not only for clothing fit but for health as well.

    You're at a good age to change the way you dress though. Don't go to college looking dumpy like that.

    According to SF standards, you look horrible.

    According to anyone elses standards, you look absolutely unremarkable.

    Haha, I can take that. I plan to save as much as I can and build up a nice wardrobe starting now for next year. I'm just trying to get an idea of what I need to keep or toss and what would work for me and what won't. SF has a lot of good looks and I'd like to use some of that to make my own so I'm just getting feedback. I can handle a good roast as long as I get something out of it. I still get told I dress very well by a lot of people. (It's high school what do you expect from people my age?).

    OP you look like an average frat-kid, read up on here for a while and adjust your wardrobe with what fits your budget, environment, and comfort level if you're trying to be a little more unique. Once you do, post in WAYWT and see where you fall, but there's no need to start new threads for every little thing, most of the info is already there if you'll look for it.

    Quit posting for a few weeks. Read the forum semi-regularly for discussion on style, fashion, clothes, brands, fits, outfits, whatever. Just read a bit and don't expect people to fix you. Otherwise you'll still look clueless but in slightly better fitting clothes.

    Don't do vertical and horizontal stripes.

    Also get your jeans tailored to fit better.

    Don't wear those sneakers.

    Just my advice....

    Does it all have to be designer? Sound slike that is what is being implied. Anyways would you consider GAP to be shit? Most of my wardrobe is from there.

    What exactly is "designer"? Even stuff at WalMart was designed by someone.

    There's really not as much brand snobbishness here as newbies seem to think. Gap, J. Crew, Target, etc. all get occasional love here.

    I only get basics at J. Crew and stuff. I'm posting here to get my name on every board. I really have nothing to contribute.

    Actually, I would strongly advise slappysloopy to first dump several hundred dollars into clothing before doing something drastic like getting a haircut.

    Ok, I guess I just never realized.

    I wore Gap shit for years. I think it looks pretty good and its very budget oriented. I never got logo'd stuff but casual pants, dress clothes and even my favorite pair of jeans ever came from there. For your age and budget I think its very acceptable under the singular condition that, at the VERY least you get your shirts altered. Mine costs $10 per alter (shorten sleeves, shorten length, slim it up, etc). For a $50 shirt $20 of alterations trule can make a difference. Gap tends to fit extremely boxy.

    Now that Ive been reading this forum for a while I have upped my taste slightly and focus on more quality than quantity - but Im also relatively established at 26. I recommend getting a good base of well fittening clothes and then build up from there with nicer items a few years down the road once your height/weight is stable. You aint done growing yet. Drops some lbs, put on some muscle and the clothes will look better.

    And you can just do what I did in college and wear frat t-shirts and flip flops everyday like everyone else.
