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.

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.

Wow. It's been a while since I've seen you then. How did the job interview go?

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.

Speaking of crap, did that shirt ever arrive?

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