Vintage and freebies and trades are a complete cop out guys.

Otherwise:

w+h hoodie, gift
t-shirt, blank by Jay Allen, gift.
Jeans, Nudies, gift
Chucks, custom, gift
Belt, Engineered Garments, gift
Underwear, $10
Socks $2.

Total: $12

I mean, seriously. The challenge is to do this at retail...

why retail? thats fucking lame.

i thought the challenge was to put together a "streetwear outfit for under $100?"

gifts are different than vintage. i actually went out and bought this stuff, it wasnt given to me (except for the necklace charms). anyone else could replicate cheaps or my vintage finds if they trolled the resale shops like we do. i can see thinking freebies and trades are kinda cop outs but the vintage stuff? thats totally fair game.

Well, because the dollar limits are pretty meaningless if you include thrift and gifts (sale is debatable). I know the OP didn't say at retail, but you could put together a pretty good getup from thrifting for <$50. You guys have both done that. (And much respect for it, thrifting is a staple for me, too, and you guys are dedicated.) I could say I have a pair of secondhand shoes, old jeans, and a thrift western for <$50, but no one else can go buy that, or even selected pieces.

I think the point of the threads is what can you go out and buy right now for <$X. Under $100 is very hard from the ground up.

Ya sorry I didn't post this in the beginning, but I'm thinking retail (or whatever price it is at right now) w/links.

Anyone can say they got this for XX + this for X, but prove it with links. Can be buy it now's on ebay, etc.

Just thought it would be cool to do, and maybe someone will pick up an outfit for sub $100.

ps - without shipping, and underwear, socks are a given - jeez didn't know I had to include so many rules.

I think I could pretty easily put together pretty good looks for cheap at Target and Old Navy, etc. The quality (and production ethics, if you care) might be a bit subpar, though.

True, but it's very difficult to include shoes for <$100, even at those places. Unless you're doing total basics, like old navy's slips, or havianas or something.

This thread did make me remember that Old Navy harrington I've been meanign to check out in person....
