I graduated college last summer and am making pretty good money.

I graduated college last summer and am making pretty good money. I’ve been doing a great job saving, but I feel embarrassed when going into the office (once every week at most) or going out with my friends because I dress like a high school student – haven’t bought new clothes since then really. I’m looking to add some new pieces to my wardrobe. Can be anything: shoes, shirts, button up, pants, etc. I’d appreciate any recommendations. American made preferably. Price isn’t too much of an issue it the quality is worth it. Thanks all.

      yea what about it

      I’d probably start by looking at some stores and go from there, maybe some youtube tutorials.

      I don’t think you’ll get much reasonable suggestions from people here, especially since this is what people on this board wear […]

      i plan on doing this. just looking for some advice from the friendly folks on /fashion/

      Depends on the dress code of your workplace. Maybe get into the "business casuals core". But when in doubt, button up + chinos/odd trousers + dress shoes is a safe bet for office jobs.

      ive got that set up for the most part. i wear eccos though instead of typical dress shoes

    Then go to a clothing store and buy clothes with that in mind? Every time I come to this board there are normies trying to elevate their style, which is fine for the record, but I just don’t understand how it’s so difficult to go buy some normal clothing.
    I get it when someone is trying to actually get into fashion, because in the beginning it can be a bit overwhelming for some, but if you’re just trying to dress your age then go to a clothing store.

      looking for inspiration g. if i want to dress like a californian skater then i can, but i already do and dont want to. is it really too much to ask of people to recommend clothes they like?

      Idk, what kind of aesthetic do you gravitate towards? Can you afford it? Does it compliment your physique? Perhaps more importantly, is it somewhat authentic to your lifestyle? Example, if you work in a cubicle and dress like this people are liable to think you’re a blowhard piece of crap. Personally I’ve got quite a relaxed dress code, so I get to dress in clothes that also double as my nicer /out/ clothes (knit sweaters because the weather sucks here, cowboy cut jeans, hiking boots). But hey, if that isn’t a reflection of your lifestyle you’re gonna look like a larper. It’s kind of a meme statement at this point but fashion is a form of self expression.

      the clothes should look good on me, yes. im just asking if people have brands that they recommend. for work, i wfh mostly. when in office, i wear chinos and polo or button up. i dont really need more office clothes but am open to polo or shoe suggestions. outside of work, i prefer to wear jeans, sneakers, and a shirt. i am asking what jeans, sneakers, and shirts you guys like, simple as.

        Now you’re actually getting somewhere. It’s difficult to help someone without any context. That said, this is not enough to really narrow down what you need.
        Do you want graphic tees? Plain quality tee shirts? Are you open to color? What style are you actually going for?
        I would say go to a good thrift store. I like to go to the thrift stores that are located in the nicer part of my town because they have nicer things. A thrift store is generally going to have everything that a beginner could even feasibly see themselves wearing. This might be enough for you because you could just find a good couple shirts and pants and coast from there, but if you want to keep going then pay attention to the brands that you gravitate towards and find out where those brands are actually sold.
        tldr buy a white tee shirt and some jeans

          I intentionally didnt answer these types of questions. I simply just want to know what clothes you guys would recommend. For example, I have a Filson long sleeve that I like. Its good quality, and I like the style. Because of this, if someone is randomly asking for clothe recommendations, I would recommend it.

            People might clown on me, but Uniqlo is good for basics. It’s affordable and generally good quality.
            Baracuta is one of my favorite brands, specifically with their silk shirts. Slightly harder to find, and can be relatively pricey, but I’d definitely recommend.
            Urban Outfitters has a lot of quality as well, and you don’t have to be wanting to dress like a cringey zoomer when buying from them. They have quality basics, and if you’re willing to be a bit daring they have some interesting/fun fitments. Definitely slightly pricier again.
            For the most part I have one-off pieces, where I only have one product from a specific brand so I can’t really speak on the brand as a whole, but some of my go to pieces are made by Wrangler, Newport Harbor, and a minimally branded pair of Gucci jeans that aren’t gaudy.

            Kino response. Thank you. I’ll see what Uniqlo has.

            Ok. I’ll help you. What do the other people in your office wear and where about in the world do you live?

            Abercrombie athletic straight and athletic loose, Levi 541 athletic
            > sneakers
            Air Force 1s in white, Chuck Taylors in white, New Balances in any color, Salomon sportstyle in any color
            > shirts
            Plain tees in white and black, plain longsleeeves in white and black, rugby shirts

            Swap the sneakers with loafers and the shirt with an oxford button down in blue when you get older for a more mature look

            But I regret it since you want to be a stupid

            There’s nothing wrong with Air Force 1s, they’re just going to make you look like you follow trends is all, so I guess if you’re trying to come off as mature and stable then they aren’t the best choice. I feel like a guy that wears white Air Force 1s is more likely to be approachable.
