    Paul Smiths can occasionally spring up around there (on B&S and next sale season), Allen Edmonds would be the safe business choice (albeit bland and, imo, ugly) at a bit under $200.

    You could check Yoox, they have some gems hidden in all the junk, and Gilt will occasionally have good stuff but you'll have to be quick.

    Hello I am a big noob and i need some ideas for what clothes to buy from where for college. I am 5'8, weigh 151 pounds, and my body type is average. I want clothes that feel comfortable, good quality, and aren't too heavy on my pocket, but look nice overall. (probably 200 max on clothes for now)

    I want some clothes that would be good for the summer. I would like to wear some good looking polos, graphic tshirts, shorts, pants etc... im basically just getting a whole new set of clothes since my old set of clothes aren't that neat looking. Right now im basically wearing a few graphic t-shirts and 2 polos and i only have about 2 jeans from kohls and 2 khaki shorts from kohls. I'm afraid to go shopping because i really dont know what to look for or where to go to.

    I would probably prefer to order online than go out to get my clothes. thanks in advance.

    Hello I am a big noob blah blah blah

    j crew or h&m would probably be good places. h&m's quality is middling, but it gets the job done. i've got some old blazers and pants that are least three years old. you'll mostly run into trendy pieces but they do have some classics. i wore a lot of h&m and urban outfitters in college.

    uo is a decent place to find things since they have some nice stuff every now and then since they carry non in-house brands. like right now there's stuff from the folks behind rogues gallery, velour, and even exclusive quoddys from the website.

    uo and j crew offer great websites with very lenient return policies, and often times give out free shipping and other coupon codes.

    Slim fitting, relatively low rise (9.5" rise maximum) wool pants in a 28 waist? or ~29 waist if it's true to size? Dark colors, work appropriate.

    Club Monaco has (had?) some really nice slim-fitting wool pants.

    I'm spending July 2nd to August 14th in Spain and it is going to be hot as shit. I need linen pants suggestions, I'm looking for a bit of color too, or at least something past the standard khaki and white that pretty much everyone has.

    Also not looking to spend a lot of money...maybe <$85 a pair?

    I need some chinos - I'm in the UK, and I'm size 29/30. Looking for chinos under £40 is a nightmare, nothing fits me! Any ideas?

    First up peacoats/half trench? Yay, or nay? I need something for Autumn/Winter to update my look but am kinda cash strapped being a university student. I figure getting something different to any one of my cheap skate brand hoodies might be good and I can wear it with a business shirt or any one of my t-shirts.

    Budget is about $150-$200 tops.
