    I still happily wear Banana Republic for the majority of my non-summer casual fits.

    Their shorts are fine. If casual pants fit
    Me with clean lines, which they don't, I would happily buy lots of them on sale.

    Stitches, where have you been?

    Speaking of brand snob, for my casual stuff I wear ZEGNA and RLBL casual button down shirts.
    I have been forbidden from wearing them as they make me look OLD (per someone at home) and now I have started wearing polo shirts.

    BR isn't bad for some things. They usually have good clearance sales. Decent shirts/sweaters for cheap. I try not to pay retail or anywhere near it for items like that though.

    I wear Banana Republic boxer shorts almost exclusively, with the exception of a few from Takeo Kikuchi.

    The majority of my polos are from BR. A few solid tshirts from them as well. Jeans. A few casual jackets. A cardigan or two. Shorts are 50/50 BR/JCrew. Majority of BR were sale items or outlet.

    Also, I often wear boat shoes. And dress shirts with shorts, untucked. And a ratty baseball cap.

    I'm still looking for the perfect polo. I have some suitsupply cotton/cashmere ones that feel nice and soft and fit well, but the collar is too floppy. I've had Luxire copy an Eidos polo just from pictures, so I'm wondering how that will turn out. I would've bought an original one, but they don't have any stores in Europe.

    Shoot, you a high roller.
    As I've said before, I wear 6 for $5 boxers from Target [​IMG]

    Also, when I say polo, I mean RL polo shirts. I think they fit me the best.
