Let me first describe myself to you

I am 18, 6 foot, I keep my head shaved down to below a 1 guard, I am quite muscular. Got stubble, deep voice, I'm very manly for my age.

I don't wear stuff like purple shirts, stripy shirts, yellow scarves, etc etc, none of that stuff.

I go to college.

I normally wear timbaland boots, jeans, a t-shirt and black jacket.

I want to buy some clothes tomorrow in that style. What should I look for? What kind of clothes would suit me based on the description provided?

Thanks and peace.

Wear whatever you feel comfortable in. If you like "Timbaland" boots, jeans, t-shirts and black jackets, wear that.

Yes I agree, but I can't show up to college everyday in the same clothes :/

Your best bet is to look around at the stores you already like to buy from for similar items. If you want recommendations on other brands to consider, you should post in the "Streetwear and Denim" section of the forum.

To shift to something a little sharper but in keeping with your college environment, try some brown-colored longwings or perhaps handsewns. Sharp twill trousers or dark colored jeans. Throw in some OCBD's in interesting colors. Grab a nice leather jacket or a relaxed blazer, perhaps corduroy or tweed. Add only one or two elements at a time unless you really want to be noticed. But it's not good to look like you are trying too hard.

Most important: find a good barber and visit him regularly. Only grow stubble if it works with your face, the Geico Caveman/Grunge generally does not go over well. Smell nice and always be clean.

Confidence is the key to style.

Wear a hat! You only have to buy one good one and it can change your look. It's a great look for short haired men, especially considering that it's already starting to go as you say.

What I meant is that hats look good on short haired men, and it just happens to be convenient that you have short hair. It's not about hiding it. Hats are very stylish.
