    ^ beatwear, paul smith on sale, maybe All Saints but I don't know what their quality is like.

    Basically, you want a sleek last with a very small or nonexistent welt, which will conform a little better to the jean silhouette and avoid seeming stuffy.

    I am looking for a casual pair of leather shoes/boots to wear mainly with dark jeans around $250-$300. Having trouble finding the right look. Do not want anything too bulky or shiny. thanks

    DBs?

    Katahdin's? (a bit bulky)

    Something blake-stitched (and don't spit-shine it)--this is getting into your price range.

    Can someone recommend a basic jacket to wear with t-shirts/shirts and jeans (something casual that I can wear to dive bars)?

    Thanks for the suggestions. I quite like the Katahdins but I live in the UK and don't want to order without trying them on. Is there anything similar to this boot that could be available in the UK apart from the Red Wing boot?

    Does anyone know where I can get some decent but cheap plaid dress shirts or flannels? Preferably under 50-100 dollars.

    Any good sneakers (or even boots or shoes) with dark green or olive colorways?

    I'm looking for a flannel shirt but haven't really found anything in the clothing stores I normally peruse at.
    Would looking at a outdoor/work-clothing store be worthwhile or are those not suited to casual wear about the place?

    check back a page the baracuta G9 might fit your bill, or just go to your local mall and find something there. looking at your criteria it should be really easy to find something there for cheap

    wear a suit to wedding, don't be 'that guy'

    what is a plaid dress shirt? that doesn't even make any sense. my guess is a simple button down plaid shirt. look for you local H&M. or if you want something of higher quality look at the affiliate stores, they sometimes have stuff on sale at your price range

    The local H&M only sells clothes for women and children, I was hoping for an online store.

    First time poster here...

    I just wanted to find a good brand that's fit for bigger men. I'm muscular/bulky and I just can't brands like Zara or Uniqlo. Any other more muscular men out there that have found a good fitting brand? Or maybe you could suggest me a size in a particular brand that will fit well (like an xl at Uniqlo or something)
