    Go visit Robbie at Target and buy a button down you like but isn't over the top obnoxious and get it tailored. I always wonder what people are thinking when they add in descriptives like I am still growing. Do you really want people to know you're a little guy?

    Edit: I don't think Robbie works at Target anymore but whatever.


    No, I do work at Target... but they don't sell anything cool for someone on a budget at all. Definitely not rad-ass desert boots, or Merona OCBD's, nope... so don't waste your time shopping there go to Wal-mart their selection of fine mens wear is vastly superior to Tarjays...[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Also, I live in the Bay Area, so any advice on shopping in San Francisco would also be greatly appreciated.

    See the Retail Directory in my sig. SuperFuture has an even more extensive list. http://www.superfuture.com/supertravel/

    Identify those mid-priced items that are of much higher quality.

    In particular, J. Crew's merino wool is fantastic. I wore their 1/2 zip and full-zip cardigan from this season probably 3 times a week and they still haven't lost their form.

    I am the ultimate noob, and this thread seems made for me. I can summarize my wardrobe quickly:

    Well, I could give you a rundown of the standard basics, but that's standard. Do you have any style you swing towards? Any major hobbies/passions?

    cheap monday tight fit
    kill city
    urban outfitters house brand bdg


    Those are all on the skinny side of slim but you didn't specify. All are cheap though. Under $75 and most $50 or under

    ^^ absolutely. what kind of pants do you want? khakis? jeans? wool? edit: didn't see chrono's post, but everything he suggested is good.

    who makes basic (just cardi, v-neck, crewneck, nothing fancy) sweaters in a variety of colors that would fit well on a guy who is 6'1", 150 lbs, 36" chest? I really like uniqlo, but I don't know if their S would be slim enough/if their XS would be long enough.

    There is about 1 degree of separation between this thread and the "Ask a Question, Get an Answer - please ask all quick questions here" thread. Same goes for the WAYWT discussion thread. It's just turning into another WAYWN thread. What's the point? I thought we wanted less clutter, not more. [​IMG]

    re: slim pants, Incotex is much, much better than all of the brands that have been mentioned. With some luck, they can be found under $100 in B&S forum or eBay.
