Any good sites?? Nothing too expensive.
the only garment that is trickier to buy than a truly great pair of jeans.
That's avoid one though. No hood, elasticated cuffs, tabards of superfluous pockets...simple design and well executed.
iPhone predictive texting, not very helpful
but i definitely think you could get a nicer one..
what dont like is around the neck area, i like the zips in the sleeves and general shape,.. but it needs a better shape around the neck
Who wants to dress me?
I want to look decent for a change.
im busting to go shopping!
i have no idea where to shop myself but i know how to dress. Be very careful about buying stuff online, i have a full wardrobe of stuff ive bought and never worn. Too big, too small,to short and too long!
Medium seems to be my size in everything. I never really have any problems finding clothes that fit me.
Completely free as well, for a full refund?
and never do.
has lots of cheap stuff, both US and UK, plus a designer section worth checking out for decent discounts. uniqlo.co.uk is good too.
How much is 'too expensive' though? There's loads more which I use but i've a feeling they'll probably be classed as expensive...
and then a few cheap t-shirts and hoodies maybe. So anything that would have that kind of range. I came across that site before, it's pretty good.Thanks.
i bought a suit jacket off bargaincrazy.com last week for a tenner, down from 75. It seems like a good place to pick up really cheap jeans/labelled goods
The decent 'heritage' range (slim cut) Fruit of the Loom tee shirts are available on Amazon for about £8 each-seriously good quality, loads of colours including some unusual ones like pistachio. Two styles that I like Idaho which is a Henley style tee and Texas which is your common or garden crew neck. Best value/quality plain tees I've found and they piss all over AA. size up one from your usual size if you like them, they're tighter than the standard ones
So it might be worth investigating slightly more expensive options for better quality stuff that's now more affordable. I really like a lot of the shirts at http://www.folkclothing.com/men/bargain-basement.html plus they're only about £35-50 in the sale.
Zoovillage.com ships to the UK for free & has loads of different things including a lot of obscure Scandinavian brands. www.coggles.com/sale/man and www.urbanoutfitters.co.uk/mens/icat/mens/ both have a wide range and sometimes good bargains too.
80 for a pair of jeans.
That's my limit and at that I would really have to like them.
try Nudie, Edwin or Albam for the upper end of your budget, or Cheap Monday for (surprisingly) a little cheaper. All good quality and lots of different styles to choose from.
their main slim fit model. Better than 501 if you like a fitted look, but not uber-skinny either. There are heaps of washes, I favour the 98% cotton/2% elastane ones for a little stretch.
where we try to find the most expensive and ridiculous item on oki-ni. He once found a £300 wooden belt. Almost tempting in the 70% off sale...
but there are some really beautiful clothes on there too, and you can sometimes get a bargain.
For a leather armour jacket?! Oki-ni is a never-ending goldmine of ridiculous clothing at outrageous prices.
but the majority of all saints clothing is seen as a bit too 'banter boy' and generally not very good. Plus the quality is nowhere near on par with the 'expensive' stuff, which is actually around the same price as allsaints once in the sale.
but generally the type of guy who wears something like: chinos/jeans that cuff at the ankle, no socks and those stupid tomtom shoes. Then a t shirt that shows too much chest hair, and an overstyled haircut plus an earring. A more 'upmarket' chav perhaps?
I know what you mean, I hate most Topman stuff but every once in a while there's something that catches my eye.
I don't even know if it's a universal term here, just what people I know seem to call those types! Maybe I need to search more with allsaints then, but just the image the brand has here puts me off massively. I seem to remember I did once find a fairly nice jumper in there but for some reason I didn't get it, I think cos it had one of their weird logos on the front.
I don't really want to be a walking advert like Jack Wills, Hollister, Superdry etc.
Yeah mostly the same when it comes to buying clothes, simple and basic items that don't follow any stupid trends. Recently, maybe because of a lack of budget, I'd much rather spend a bit more and get something that's really good quality so it'll last a few years rather than having to buy new things ever few months. Working well so far!
But I'd genuinely wear this.
