Thinking about styling myself up

Well, I'm 21 and I don't think wearing some torn up Wrangler jeans and a Humble Pie T shirt I bought 3 years ago is going to cut it everywhere anymore. I'd like to keep a kind of hippyish edge to it, but I want to kind of spruce it up you know?

Any ideas of where I should look? I saw one ad in the GQ with Jennifer Aniston on it with an ad (I think it was for a company called Erpo or something like that), but what it had on its website was nothing like what it had in its ad. It was a bit too extreme hippy for me anyway.

This is more or less what I'm looking for:

Can't do the hair because I'm thinning out on top, but c'est la vie (besides I have yet to hear a complaint about my other genetic features ;D). I also want to throw some western stuff in there too (think snap front shirts and maybe cowboy boots).

Lastly, I'd like to keep this on the inexpensive side, I only have a part time, minimum wage job. Beats the alternative, but still puts a leash on my endeavours.

Any idea on brands or stores I should look at?

If you are a not a troll, read below:

This may sound like a harsh response, but I doubt anyone on this forum is going to encourage you to dress like those in the picture. The only one who might be close is the guy 2nd from the right, as he is basically in a collared shirt and jeans. In the future, it is more helpful to mention two things. (1) When you say "inexpensive", what do you mean by that? Dollar numbers are more useful, for example, how much would you be willing to pay for a shirt? Jeans? A sport coat? (2) You are posting in the "Men's Clothing" section, the above looks more like it belongs more in the "Streetwear and Denim" area. Here, people are likely to discuss suits, collared shirts, and calfskin shoes.
