    Could someone direct me to some brands that make short sleeve sweatshirts? I know skull makes, but they don't carry 42(large). Thanks

    Thanks, I'll probably get the Sand Suede instead of grey. I don't know if I want to get the 511 since I tried some on and they were way too much tight for my liking. I sized up one afterwards and it was still tight. I'm more into Slim-Fitting jeans instead of Skinny jeans since I have quite big thighs cause I played soccer for like 8 years. Though I don't really know any other nice Black slim fitting jeans that are under 100$...



    Yeah, well after thinking a bit, I think I'll not buy the black sneaks. But yeah, I do like black & white since I know they will fit me well, and since I don't have a good wardrobe yet, going with the basics should be first no? I would like to get some colors though, that's why I want the Epaulet Flannel.


    -for slim but not quite as slim as the 511 and still cheap (they're snug on me in the thighs too) I'd suggest some H&M sliqs if you have an H&M around.

    As far as the buttondowns- I'd avoid the AA buttondowns... they're not that great of quality especially considering they aren't that ultra cheap. As always it depends on build, but Gap fitted BDs sized down one can work, and they pretty much always get marked down to 20 to 30.

    Check out Uniqlo's EXPLORER. Filter by Men's, Shirts (not Shirt), and Red and you'll have a good number of options.

    Other than Uniqlo. I buy a shit load of clothes from them whenever I go to Hong Kong and it just seems silly to go buying Uniqlo in the US.

    brown shoes that can be go with pants+bd/tie as well as jeans. Price ~$150 or less. Ideally they should be comfortable and durable.

    Totally new here. In lieu of an introduction I'll go ahead and ask if anyone knows of a decent leather jacket that's not $1000 but not a mall-brand rag?

    A little Mike and Chris-ish?

    Let me suggest Temple of Jawnz as a source of leather jackets which kill on price-to quality.

    Something else to work with? Dressy, not dressy...I read this and think "Clarks Desert Boots" b/c your request is vague... lemmywinks: no other suggestions except for Dunderdon...sorry.

    Medium dressy? Definately not looking for desert boots (I do have a pair though). Looking for something to wear to the hospital (with dark gray slacks, bd, tie, and white coat) or out to the bar(dark jeans+button down).

    I'm thinking something like a brown PS cage, but a lot cheaper. I'm open to other styles though -cap toe, wing tip(maybe), etc.

    First time poster, have a quick question. I'm looking for some decent jeans for around $50, any brand suggestions? I usually wear ones from express or hollister, but is there a better alternative? Poor unemployed college grad so until I get a job I'll have to attempt to look good with less. Thanks guys.

    +1 on the 511s. I own a pair and they're great jeans for the price.

    So my search for that "flexible" shoe continues. I'd suggest NDC Made By Hand (although I'm not sure of their quality) or PS as possibilities...for $150 you won't find a shoe that looks good in both arenas while maintaining a high quality. Better to save up and get a nice pair in the future.
