    Hey guys, I'm fairly new to dressing well. Reddit MFA turned me to Styleforum and you guys seem to take dressing well to American Psycho levels! Which is great.

    I just learned of Uniqlo as well, and as a 22 yr old college student about to graduate they seem to be great for starting to build up my wardrobe. (Plus they sell online now)

    So far for this fall/Winter I've got:

    Wool Blended Pea Jacket (Navy)

    Heavy Gauge Fair Isle Button up Cardigan (Gray)
    Heavy Gauge Shawl Cardigan (Black)
    I've also got about 5 pairs of Levis 508's that fit great so i'm pretty much set for now as far as pants go. (Although I wish I could get wool trousers from uniqlo in 32x30...)

    I will probably buy some dress shirts when I have to start job hunting next year, but for now I would like to keep it fairly casual.

    I was thinking about getting some Heattech l/s shirts and possibly a casual oxford in blue and white. With a budget of about $200. What would you guys cop from the online store if you were me? I wear Medium (I'm 5'10" 165lbs) Also I'm from the south so it doesn't get too cold down here. Thanks for the help in advance, and I'll try to post some pics of what I got so far.

    ^welcome. I'd suggest: navy and black EFM crewneck and vneck cardigan, 3 flannels in colors you like, 3 extra fine cloth button downs, and a white and blue slim fit oxford. then you good to go.

    just buy what you like not according to a checklist

    recommended stuff:
    oxfords
    ul down jacket
    premium tees
    socks
    twill jeans apparently
    extra fine merino sweaters
    flannels perhaps

    Cool!, appreciate the advice. I was really wanting to pick up some of those medium EFM Crew-necks but they ran out of mediums days ago, and they've been out of those oxfords since I first browsed the on-line store.

    I will definitely pick up some flannels and extra fine cloth button downs though!
    Yeah, thanks for the input I will definitely be stocking up on some basics, I'll also try to check out that down jacket.

    I'm not disagreeing, just thought the post was funny.

    Can't speak for Everlane, but I picked up a cashmere V-neck today in Soho and the quality and fit is really decent and for $60 (sale price, regularly $99) you can't go wrong.

    Uniqlo cashmere falls apart pretty quickly. Def reasonable at sale price but not worth retail.

    If you check the everlane thread Nan compares the cashmere between Uniqlo, Everlane, and J. Crew.

    Received regular cashmere and +J stretch cashmere. +J is dope but regular is whack. Arm holes too big and is too thin and flimsy. No one has posted any fits or reviews of everlane so I'm still not convinced that the cut is good.
