I do think that sometimes those dudes from StreetEtiquette overdo it.

No hate though, they're doing their own thing and are on their grind. I just prefer simpler and cleaner looks.

But yes, style is definitely subjective.

This is a great thread for everyone, no matter what stage of the "dressing better" game you are in. Never understood the hate this thread gets.

I was thinking about changing it up a little but I don't want to seem like I'm trying to be something I'm not or be out of my comfort zone and conform to what other people think I should dress like. So what are some ideas to dress better but still keep it real simple.

if you are comfortable who cares what others say, they are not buying your gear. I personally could care less if someone disagrees with how i dress. being confident in what i have on has always been the main thing for me. style wise, i believe there is a time and place for everything. i do the basketball shorts, foams and fitted sometimes when im running around or whatever, but in most situations i feel that look is unacceptable at my age. it all depends on the situation.

I got a question. How do y'all decide what to dry clean and what to machine wash?

Anything you're afraid will shrink should be dry cleaned as well as suits,blazers,dress shirts etc...I generally just stick to what the tags say but if I feel questionable about it,I will go ahead and have it dry cleaned.

Considering adding a pair to the collection....on the fence.

(bear in mind, the green pair, would most likely be worn with orange laces)

I like how through all the hate they recieved when they first started....mainly from NT. They've turned their blog into a really successful one.
Those guys are really unique too

Please don't dress like herbs in this thread.

Dressing better means dressing better, not just because RFX tells you its chill.

I'm inclined to think that the people saying your clothes are tight are right based on most of the fits I see in the Dressing better threads.

Aside from the suggestion on the label, I always dry clean my trousers to avoid any possibility of shrinking. I had a bad experience several years ago when an expensive pair of pants shrunk in the wash, never again! I also dry clean all of my sweaters otherwise the label notes anything differently.

These look good on magazine, but not realistic. Articles of clothes are too tight, and will restrict movement. I tried to duplicate the look before and fell into its peril.

Will be following this thread very closely. Unfourtunately, I don't have the big budget some of you guys have.

Glad to see this new thread started back up again, gonna miss the old one but it's good to start fresh...I'm gonna be ordering those pieces to make a full grain belt today, and I'll post pics once I get them and finish the staining process and everything

That's why you find stuff that fits. You can easily replicate those looks if you want to.
I think fit is the most important thing. Most people can't seem to get that part right. Even I struggle with it, especially with shirts.
WJ4 I think you have some of the best fitting shirts that I've seen. Here and on SF

Thanks, man. I'm just an ordinary cat that doesn't realy fall into either category at SF it seems. I will chime in later about this. I see you got a blog too, is that new? Will add you later!

Some people actually go for the anti fit look. Not my cup of tea, but still interesting stuff. Slim fit is timeless though, it will always look good.

Hey Fellas!

I have a black euro/slim fitting suit that i am wearing to a wedding that i am in. The groom purchased ties for us to wear but they are the standard "fatter" ties. Will this look terrible with my suit? Is their a way to possibly get the tie tailored for a slimmer look?

Any advice would be helpful!

Thank you!

To retrospect90 initially when you start changing your style of dress, especially if it is somewhat dramatic people will notice and people will talk. I know I had that happen to me a lot, especially the comments about trying to be someone else. Ideas to dress better and keep it simple, is still do you. You mentioned t-shirts, why not wear some chinos with some plain tee's and some Jack Purcell's or dress shoes for example. Hoody, replace the hoody with a V-neck sweater and a button down top, change the sweats for some jeans, shoes you can do some boots or some dress shoes as well. Plus at the end of the day, who cares, if you feel comfortable and walk around with that confidence the comments will stop.
CJ003, I completely agree as well with the "damn dude bought that suit too damn small" comment. As most of you know I'm not a small guy so the assumption is always to wear loose clothing, super loose clothing, ah no. I've gotten from my co-workers (I'm a teacher), specifically my male co-workers the your suit is too small, it's isn't it just fits properly. The main one I still get to this day is again from my male co-workers, regarding where I'm going later in the day (like a date, interview, usually it's "ahhh you must have a date") when it's just the fact that I give a crap about how I look. It's not that they don't but I can tell you right now that even the smallest guy at work wears his clothing about 2 sizes too big and square toe shoes are staple amongst most of the men at work or the pointy slip ons. If I even wear a blazer to work most of the guys think I'm either going on a date or trying to show them up. I actually got fed up the last week of school, since no students are present mostly all the males just dress like if they're at home, and I wore a button down, jeans and a blazer (my Bespoke suit jacket to be exact). The comment was made and as much as I insisted that I just wanted to wear a blazer they kept at it. I responded with "no I just care about how I dress and considering I've waited 6 months for this jacket, I'm wearing it." My principal is in a suit everyday and not well fitting ones so the times I've worn suits to work which fit better than his, I've even gotten sarcastic comments from him. I don't care, my thing is, it's not my fault I know how to dress . Not surprising it's the women at work whom I get the most compliments from. At least 3-4 of the women (staff of 45 teachers, about 28-30 female), compliment me on a weekly basis and I think the men at work hate that. I once was told by one of the women that my pants were too short because I cut them at my ankle for my loafers and no socks, I let her know that no this is how you are suppose to wear your pants not having 8 inches of fabric piling up, it shut her up. Too many people don't know how to dress properly in terms of fit and proportion and that's why when they see people like a lot of us here who take the time to put ourselves together and wear things that fit that we are "trying too hard."
At the end of the day, do you. Be comfortable. Be Confident. Be You.



This is actually really good advice. I think i am going to start to post in this tread i was a lurker in the first one but i am in the beginning stages of "dressing better" for lack of a better word. At work its a pretty laid back environment so people wear jeans sneakers t shirts nothing crazy but the higher ups all wear either a full suit or at least a shirt and tie. When the ceo or someone from corporate come or if i know that i am going to visit a client. I will put on a shirt/tie and slacks i always get complements and people from other departments ask "oh why are you dressed up". I am in a middle management position but being that i am young it looks weird to the older people in other departments to see me so young walking out of meeting but i think if i slowly mix in different things a shirt/tie wont be a shocker down the line.

Glad this thread got restarted. Ive always wanted to upgrade my wardrobe but I don't have a big budget, and I'm taller (6'5, 35in waist) so I have trouble finding stuff that fits. Hope to start piecing together a nice fall wardrobe soon so I'll be keeping up on the thread this time.
