    Hmmm, I'm expecting a lot of white Vans slip-ons...

    Don't forget, there's already an official thrift/discount store fit bragging thread with some great ten dollar fits. It's a bit MC-oriented, but some people -- like eazye and Chet B -- have done some amazing sw/d-ish things as well.

    You could probably recreate my fit with a thrift/Lee type jacket and Uniqlo T/jeans and Vans or Chucks.

    I have like 5 entry level things somewhere in my closet that I'm fairly sure could make up an entire outfit.
    I'm assuming Zara, Club Monaco, J Crew etc is all fine?
    If it ends up being like a $500 outfit limit it will be a lot easier I think.

    As a lifelong, card-carrying non-baller, I think the most challenging part is going to be remembering early enough that I can go outside wearing a jacket and not literally die from overheating.

    Tried a few cheap outfits the last few days that weren't just all Nike sportswear. All have been pretty bad. This one looks alright I think, but the photos did not come out well. I might edit this and replace it later if I come up with something better before the end of the contest. I have some non-collab Uniqlo stuff that might look alright. I realised that I usually depend on one or two designer items in my outfits and without them it just gets very basic, which is okay for day to day outfits but not really interesting for the forum. Looking forward to what everyone else comes up with.

    Ceremony (Korean brand): Short Sleeve Sweatshirt $AUD35
    K-Mart: Long sleeve tee RRP $AUD6
    Cotton On: Slouch Tapered cut denim RRP $AUD50
    Adidas: Stan Smiths RRP $AUD120
    Surplus: Backpack RRP $AUD30
    Unbranded: Paracord bracelet off eBay RRP $AUD2
    RRP Total: $AUD243

    It really adds up even for cheap crap. I paid a bit less than this since most of the items were on sale, but will just use RRP for the total.

    I was told to post this in here! Experimenting with normcore/90's vibes.

    Everything is mall shit. Jacket from Gap, Jeans from pacsun, and Vans Old Skools. Favorite piece is the sweater (from J. Crew) and I really love it due to its comfort and faded color.

    Nice, getting some participation! Should we just cruise with the original concept?

    I would say collabs are fine, FYI. Within reason (Raf Stans are like $500 WTF?). N&F denim okay too, since it's entry level raw denim (was my first pair anyways).
