    Hey Buddy - here are some brands to check out:

    Denim:
    -PRPS
    -Nudie
    -J Brand (colored denim is hot)
    -Get slim or skinny depending on your body type. Not tooooo tight but fitted. Don't 'stack the denim, have it hemed to the proper length (if you're wearing with mocs/loafers to the top of the back of the shoe - sneakers, to just above the top of the sole.

    T's & Shirts
    -Scotch and Soda
    -Rag & Bone
    -Gant (Michael Bastian)
    -Acne

    Sport coat (get something casual and of a light weight. Cotton, denim, raw wool, etc)
    -Rag & Bone
    -Paul Smith
    -Ian Valardi
    -Gant

    Sneakers/Mocs
    -Todds
    -Supra
    -D Squared

    Go to your local Barneys and see one of the stylists. Here is a sample look:
    -Casual Sport Coat (canvas, denim, cotton)
    -Raw fitted crew neck
    -PRPS slim denim
    -Pair of bright Todd's mocs (no socks)

    The kid is 16 and has no business being in a club in the first place. Being an asshole is entirely appropriate here.

    Should be in school...14 hours a day... 6 days a week....plus 2 hours in the classroom on Sunday evenings as well....sorry no time for clubbing....must do homework.

    I assume the OP is in the USA though...isn't the legal minimum age for premises that sell intoxicating liquor 21?

    CBbuff - you're right, he doesn't belong in a club. But that's not the point. He asked for sartorial advice and was promptly shat on.

    This happens in all kinds of specialized-interest internet forums. Noob comes asking for help, and then some unhealthily-obsessed *clothing/car/skiing/anime* topic nerds proceed to make fun of noob because he isn't as knowledgeable.

    It's always pathetic to watch said retards buck up their own self esteem in this manner, but when they do it to a kid it's just mean.

    No wonder why Chinese people are becoming automatons. 14 hours a day, 6 days a week, and two hours per weekend? This whole Tiger Mom thing is over the top.

    I have a Chinese upbringing myself; instead of studying all day though, I was allowed to have intellectual freedom. We need people who THINK rather than just regurgitate information.

    Sorry for digressing. My remarks are a bit disparaging but I speak the truth brotha.

    EDIT: Damn, almost at that 75 post count mark. Can only make 7 more mistakes.

    I wish I was being sarcastic, they actually do a 14+ hour day at my middle school.

    Here's the daily timetable Monday to Saturday.

    5.30 rise.
    6.00 running to martial music
    6.30 breakfast.
    7.30 lessons.
    9.50 running to martial music.
    10.30 lessons.
    12.00 lunch and break.
    14.40 lessons.
    16.10 running to martial music.
    16.30 sports, music, art and other extra curricular activities,
    18.00 dinner.
    19.00 homework and self-study in classrooms
    21.30 finish.
    22.30 lights out.

    Saturday school day finishes at 18.00. Sunday evening homework and self-study 19.00-21.30.

    They don't actually want people to THINK in mainland China, that could be dangerous.

    At your age, I would go with simply a fitted white oxford with either grey slacks/raw denim and bluchers. A sportcoat might look out of place.

    He probably wouldn't have been shat on (or, at least, not in as liquidy and gassy a manner) had he been 16 and asking for sartorial advice for a first date. But he either has to be a troll or has parents who condone breaking the law assuming the so-called "clubs" that are letting him in serve alcohol on the premises and are located here in the US where the legal drinking age is 21. It's not the fact that he's a noob, but the troll/criminal part of it that are getting him the brown deluge.

    Do anything but dress your age.

    Start with your shoes, really nice low key loafers with no bling. Italian preferably and black. Santoni is a name you can trust.

    Next trou: forget jeans and think tropical wool and switch to linen when it's smoking hot. Very dark. Navy is your "Happy" color; otherwise charcoal or black. If you go black, you better go expensive, because cheap and black is almost always nasty looking. Again, Italian. See a trend here? Zanella is a name you can trust. Cuff them. 2" cuffs are the current rage and they have been stylish for over 100 years.

    You wear socks? Make them expensive as well and silk or wool. Bresciani is a name you can trust.

    Shirt? Simple, white or very pale blue or pink, and very expensive. Double cuffs with very simple Sterling silver or gunmetal links is the way to go. Borrelli is a name you can trust for the shirt and Tyrwhitt or Dolan-Bullock for the links. No need to go crazy expensive with the links, in case you are prone to losing them.

    Positively no bling, Not even your belt buckle.

    Belt? Black gator or croc would be rocking it, but ostrich or plain calfskin works just great. Simple silver buckle, never gold. Gunmetal buckles are also sweet when your links match.

    Lastly, if you wish to be taken seriously, then a tailored sport coat is your admission ticket to acceptance. Never take it off until you get home or turn 30, whichever comes first. Make yours a relativelysmall pattern sport coat of navy and black; like houndstooth or similar. For off the rack expedience, Kiton is a name you can trust.


    Here is the desired look for you:



    [​IMG]


    This look will take you clubbing anywhere in the known world.

    And do not be afraid of the uniform. Buy nice stuff, keep it clean, and wear it every night by swapping out socks and shirt for clean ones if you pull back to back all-nighters.

    The only more sophisticated look for you, should be a custom charcoal suit with everything else remaining the same except for shoes where you could swap in some really nice black oxfords to finish the look. For the oxfords you may want to begin to look at English makes as well as the usual Italian suspects.

    Cheers!

    Oh, and you are not a promoter, you are "a man of leisure".

    To all of you who actually gave me guidance on what to wear, rather than being a complete douche bag to a 16 year old on the internet : thank you very much =) @ recondite,douglas,lalaland, and frankie22. This thread is completely serious and I am aware I am too young to be clubbing in America, but I am from Europe and it is not frowned upon. To those who were concerned about my schooling, I am an honors student, everybody should have some time to go clubbing on the weekends. Anyways, thanks to those who helped!
