    I was wondering where the well-dressed members of the forum buy their clothes.  Lately, the vast majority of my clothing purchases have been from brick-and-mortar discounters (usually Filene's Basement), with a smattering of purchases from large retail stores during their clearance sales, Bluefly, and consignment stores.

    Discounters for staples (tshirts, underwear, etc...) and the occasional steal (although Filene's Basement is great for suits), specialty stores for pieces I really want (not too many stores stock Unis, Yoko Devereaux or Wrangler 47, for example,) and the internet for wierd, one off pieces.

    I would say ebay and B&M Discounters, with ebay getting a little more dollar value from me.

    This is my hobby. All serious spending is with specialty craftsmen (shirts, tailored clothing and shoes) outside the U.S.. Am currently having fun arranging for a Hong Kong shirtmaker to sew a dozen shirts from cloth from a Italian shirting mill (thanks to the Cloth Club). My next holiday will be to Budapest to visit Mr. Vass's shop.

    If I don't need to see it in person I buy online. For example, Zimmerli underwear from Mr. Kabbaz and Smedley golf shirts from eBay.
