    Yo guys, nice dress clothes.

    Just curious what the dudes of foo do for nice clothes. Like for dates and stuff.

    Since I've been going out with this girl, I've gotten 3 dress shirts(light pink, black/blue, light blue), a sweater, some church shirts, a few new ties, and am building a collection of lacoste polos. Which is funny because before that all I would wear is t-shirts and ripped jeans.

    What kinds of bargain deals do you guys find? I go to marshalls and places like that finding typically 80$ calvin klein shirts for 25-30.

    what do you guys wear for dress up?

    I like polos and dress shirts. The kind that aren't solid color but aren't plaid.

    marshall's lost the plot a long time ago.

    the places i do my clothes shopping don't have california franchises (at least that i'm aware of), so the only suggestion i can give is to check out bluefly.

    btw - wtf is a "church shirt"?

    Hawaiian print speedos, wife beater shirt, dark socks, white sandals.


    Seriously....I don't dress up much. My work clothes aren't that dressy, but I like to shop at K&G. I don't know if they are "everywhere", but we had one in Tampabay (FL) and there is one here (Seattleish).

    I have two long-sleeved shirts that are fairly presentable, and one suit which I've only worn to my grandmother's funeral. Literally 99.9% of the time I wear jeans and a T-shirt or long sleeved T-shirt. I just don't have many occasions to dress up for.

    Yep. That's why I go to Nordstrom Rack. It's their outlet/overstock store.

    There's one over by Serramonte, Jon. Across the freeway before the car dealerships.

    How are you able to afford dress clothes now? Did you get that job?

    I know, we have a nordstrom rack too, that's slightly less expensive, but still fairly expensive.

    I really like the stuff at Macy's as X said. They have awesome silk and cotton dress shirts from tons of brands. Anyone fond of Countess Mara ties?

    The dress clothes have been a build-up of over 4-5 months. Maybe one thing a month, with the pittance of money I get from helping my dad or doing an occasional job for someone. I find really good deals aswell.

    how much do you conisder 'expensive as heck'?

    if you're looking for 'dress clothes', then i suggest you spend your cash on one or two nice things, rather than lots of crap.

    Since getting married and having kid's, I now shop at the Goodwill. I just bought a really nice North Face Jacket there yesterday for 6 bucks and got an LL Bean one in the fall.

    Define crap?

    Most shirts are cotton or silk, I can't really tell quality from one to another. I have a calvin klein shirt which was quite a bit more expensive than this no name brand pink shirt I have. If I iron them, they both look just as good.

    there's plenty of difference between one cotton shirt and another: cut, material, construction, design...

    My guess is the plain white shirt worn by good LDS missionaries everywhere. With tasteful tie, naturally .
