Rather than describe the style I'm going for with words, here is the closest pictoral example I could find from the WAYWT threads
I want to build an entire wardrobe with a similar style to this, do you guys have any advice or recommendations for brands? I'm thinking about the following basics: - a couple sockless shoes. sperrys or other boat shoes, and maybe some plain canvas shoes similar to whats in the pic above? any recommended brands? - slim khakis, and some light jeans. All pants will be cuffed, all the time, and they will be cuffed high. I have some ideas for jeans but I am totally lost with khakis, do you guys have any recommendations I could search around for? I am having trouble because I don't want slim straight khakis, I have huge thighs and thin ankles so I need something that is significantly tapered - a ton of slim button-up shirts. I am lost here too, what should I be looking for? I have always stayed away from form-fitting shirts because I have a really hard time finding shirts that fit me. my chest is much wider than my waist. the middle of my body looks like a "V" in the mirror. Do you guys have any other advice for pulling off this kind of look? I know I am asking a lot but thanks in advance for any help posted

You'll need an assortment of plastic bags.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
