Re: EDF Fashion (and Fashion Deals) Thread

hey guys-

so stinkypete got on me last night about basically being a slob who wears the same shirt every time he sees me (which is true and its not a nice shirt). anyways i am fat right now, but for the first time since i got fat i have some momentum going the other way and feel within 6-8 months i wont be fat. i figure in that time i can learn to dress and then get a nice wardrobe going when i hit 200 or so. so are their any good blogs and/or forums out there for the casual male dresser? i just got that details book to get some info coming in.

I have checked out styleforum, which kaisersoze mentioned in an earlier post, and it seems to be pretty good. There are some posters there who take fashion a little too seriously for my tastes (e.g. spending $500 on jeans), but there are also some reasonable people who will give advice to the average Joe just trying to look respectable.

Re: EDF Fashion (and Fashion Deals) Thread

Giltgroupe is something everyone should be looking at. (Use my link and I'll get a $25 referral. ) http://www.gilt.com/invite/cav

It's speed shopping for new designer releases at bargain prices. They have a different designer almost every day and it starts at exactly noon ET. Some stuff sells out immediately and you have to be quick to get your size. But the prices are great and you can return anything you don't want. They have Theory on sale today and Band of Outsiders and Ralph Lauren next week.

Can someone recommend nice dress slacks that are machine washable (i.e., no dry cleaning necessary)? No-wrinkle would be a bonus.

Re: EDF Fashion (and Fashion Deals) Thread

I need an entirely new wardrobe, but despise shopping and have only simple taste. (Most of my clothes are solids or stripes that I just wear with black slacks or jeans).

Anyone here with good taste want to volunteer an 'inventory' of their wardrobe?

Also open to suggestions on where to get good deals - I generally use Macy's and H&M as my 2 go-to places.

Use my Gilt invite above. You sometimes have to get on right at noon ET to get the good stuff before it sells out, and some of the designers are outlandish and pricey, but you'll recognize those. Everything is like 2/3 off retail and some of the stuff is amazing. In just a month on there I've gotten boots from Band of Outsiders and John Varvatos, Cargo Twills and a button down from Marc Jacobs, a sweater from Theory, and a Hickey shirt.

The have a 7 for All Mankind sale coming on Friday. That's not my style, but w/e. Next week they have Spurr and Ralph Lauren Purple Label. The RLPL stuff will probably sell out in minutes.

As for your wardrobe, just stick with what you're comfortable in and go for some basics and expand from there. A lot of people on here are gonna have a closet full of streetwear since we're poker players. Is that your situation, or are you looking for business attire?

Also, join Style Forum and troll the For Sale page. Lots of good deals there for new and lightly-used stuff.

For work-related clothes, I think I can manage fine. It's pretty easy to just come up with some solid colored shirts and a few pairs of pants (black/charcoal/khaki/etc). I don't have to wear a tie to work, so it's not hard to keep it simple.

I struggle a lot more for going-out type clothes. I'm usually at regular bars, so I don't care so much for "club wear". However, I would like a few nicer outfits for dinners at nice restaurants and lounges/martini-type nights. I feel like those nicer outfits end up overlapping a lot with work clothes though. Am I wrong?

Re: EDF Fashion (and Fashion Deals) Thread

I gotta say that this Gilt Groupe sale on 7s seems pretty good. 99/pair of jeans is quite good - around the best prices I see on sales in B&M stores. I think I'm going to pass on buying anything just because I'm lazy, but yeah, looks good. Return policy, fwiw:

Quote:
Gilt Groupe accepts returns on apparel and footwear for store credit only. Gilt Groupe must receive the merchandise within 14 days from the date of purchase. Items must be unused, unworn, unwashed and undamaged. In order to facilitate the credit process, please return items in their original packaging, including: hangers, polybags, hang tags on garments, shoe boxes, dust bags, eye glass cases and gift boxes.
z28,

While bar/lounge/restaurant can overlap in type of clothes: shirt/pants/sportcoat type stuff being the norms, a lot of people make their distinction by going more "adventurous" with either the fit, the colors, the materials, or the patterns. Depending on the workplace and your personal aesthetic a lot of this might not hold for you, but a lot of people wear slimmer, more eye catching shirts and such.

Re: EDF Fashion (and Fashion Deals) Thread

I'm kind of confused about shoes. I have bought some shoes that I think look good with jeans but don't know what looks good with shorts. I used to rock the New Balance 574 but want to upgrade to something nicer. I'm looking to spend around $100 and want something that is sport/casual. Or should I just be rocking some chucks and/or adidas stan smiths?

Thanks for any help.

All the options you mentioned are standard. Please wear ankle socks or no socks if you wear them with shorts, though.

You could try to do the boat shoes thing as well. They are popular now.

I like perforated leather for hotter weather. I think Stan Smiths, Rod Lavers, etc. all come in perfed leather, as well as some less well-known Nikes.

Or you could step up and buy some Common Projects sneakers.

Thanks! Looks like some good stuff on there this week, although I need to slow down. I tend to buy more stuff than I need.

Milo, or anyone- I just bought some killer white Stan Smith 2 perforated leathers in 9.5 that don't fit. PM me if you're interested. You can't find them anymore online, which sucks. They are brand new in the box.

yeah i'm pretty sad. kors shirts are some of my favorite and i was looking forward to cashing in. for about 30 seconds the site was working flawlessly, now nothing loads =( hopefully there will be something left when traffic dies down a bit. it's understandable that things sell out quickly, though.

I didn't go there today, but I haven't had a problem with the site going down or anything before. I think they got a writeup in Forbes recently, or something. They may be getting more traffic than they can handle lately.

Re: EDF Fashion (and Fashion Deals) Thread

Gilt got slammed the past few days because they had some Tori Burch sale or some ****... I don't know, I guess it's some awesome popular womens brand.

The trick is to get on at 9AM Eastern, filter by size, and add everything you might be remotely interested in into your cart. It'll save that item for 10 minutes in your cart before it releases it for someone else to buy. Also, try waitlisting items you want.

I recently update my wardrobe with 2 pullover shirts and two pairs of cords by John Varvatos. Expensive, but I don't think anyone makes cooler, "casually nice" clothes for males over 35.

Re: EDF Fashion (and Fashion Deals) Thread

What kind of shoes am I supposed to wear with boot-cut jeans? I feel like I don't see a lot of good-looking boots, and don't like how they look with sandals. I'm 22 at UCLA fwiw.

Really? I see so many boots I want that I have to remind myself that I don't need any more.

How big is the boot cut? Some boot cuts are subtle enough to work with any shoes you would wear with normal jeans. My 5EPs are just a slight boot cut and they are extremely versatile. I really like the Clark's Touareg in brown. They look a lot better in person. FYI they run a half size big (If you're a 10, get a 9.5.)

http://www.amazon.com/Clarks-Mens-To.../dp/B000E0Y4MQ

If the opening is wide enough to not look good with normal shoes then you might want to consider getting some different jeans (unless you love them otherwise for some reason.)
