    Wear to you buy your clothes (hahah, lame joke, sorry)?

    In this thread we started to debate on whether or not is appropriate to "pop" or "upstand your collar. http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=175957&highlight=music+video

    Since that thread went totally off topic, I thought it would be appropriate to start a new thread.

    I shop mainly at Abercrombie and Polo. Then some J. Crew and American Eagle (even though I'm not a big fan of that store). I have 2 shirts from gap, 2 from lacoste, but mainly AF.

    I do have some clothes from banana republic too.

    My "work" uniform is either a white or blue pinpoint dress shirt, undershirt, jeans, rag wool socks and a pair of Keens.

    I tend to shop mostly at Goodwill, or somewhere I can get a bulk of them for cheap although when I occasionally have a fair amount of free ca$h at hand, I like to browse places like the Haight in SF or Telegraph in Berkeley, they usually have a lot of interesting consignment and vintage stuff.

    Most of my wardrobe is pretty bland right now, mostly due to being broke for the past few months and it being inappropriate weather for some of my more interesting stuff but I hope to go through another cycle of clothes soon.

    I hate shopping at the mall or any brand-name specially stores that appear therein, why should I go there and pay for an overpriced set of clothes when I can go to someplace like the cheap Chinese shops on Clement street in SF and not spend more than $30 for a bagful of stuff?

    Mostly some Jeans, Abercrombie or American Eagel (all abercrombie use to make was jeans for "fat" people, which wouldn't fit me) or some times just my sweatpants, mmm comfortable. Then either a Track/XC shirt/hoodie sweatshirt, or AF or AE shirt... then socks from Meijers and my running shoes...

    Effers stopped making my size. :D

    Only thing Avercrombie was ever good for was their soft porn catalog.

    (I have every one). :D

    I don't dress too fancy usually. Most of my clothes are from Mark's Work Warehouse. I have a bunch of shirts from Roots too, and every once and a while I'll hit up Old Navy for shorts.

    I know how you feel. Whenever I get the opportunity, I look at Victoria's Secret's catalogues or something. It makes me want to buy women's clothing. :eek:

    American Apparel

    No, this isn't some lame patriotic clothing company.. in fact its very against the "institution". It used to be a Canadian importer of American clothes, but now all the garments are made in downtown Los Angeles, sweatshop and brand free! They give their workers great benifits.

    Sorry if it sounds like I'm promoting them, but I applaud their business ethics. And their clothes are GREAT. Fit well (for tall skinny people) and good quality at a decent price.
