        Not that anon, but IH and FH flannels are literally perfect in every detail. You’re just outing yourself as undiscerning (and poor)

          literally perfect? it’s a hecking flannel and you’re not jeff bezos dude, how’s your retirement looking? you are paying a huge premium for marginal improvements and any rational person has better things to spend their money on

      giga cringe if its more than 50% of your fit.
      don’t be that guy.
      good otherwise.

      >$360 for a generic looking flannel
      do you really? lol

      yes.
      a lot of what you’re paying for is import tariffs from japan. and/or not having any part of the garment made of low quality materials with no slave labor at any point in the process.
      if you want the best its what you pay.
      200-600 is pretty much what a high quality fully made in japan or usa flannel costs, depending on if its wool, cotton, modern or vintage.

        I’m not sure if you’ve been to a thrift store before, but you can get made in USA wool pendletons for <$50. The only time I’ve paid more was $70 at a "vintage" store because it had cool details and the owner was nice.

    Depends on the item in question. But if someone put a gun to my head and said I could only wear one brand for the rest of my life it’d probably be JCrew or Todd Snyder

        Hugo Boss is perfectly fine for the average person, they made decent quality clothing, I would never buy all my clothes from a brand like that, but you can get some nice things for a decent price.

        Charles Tyrrwhitt makes damn good shirts and they have good sales too.

        no they don’t

        Ralph Lauren during sale time

        Viberg when they have 2040s with commando soles
        Ciano Farmer for denim
        Frank’s for custom /fashion/ boots
        Maida for bespoke boots for my world
        Tommy Bahama silk during sale time and if I gotta be at a beach somewhere
        Other than that, all my suits are Calvin Klein

      I was expecting to get into this thread and only see bullshit recommendations, but this one honestly checks out.
      Nobody is going to lose their minds about you wearing boss, but bang for buck it’s a really good brand. If you don’t want to spend as much as you would for suitsupply or it’s competitors it’s money well spent.

      hugo boss is mallcore masquerading as high end
      you got duped

      >hugo boss is mallcore masquerading as high end
      >you got duped
      You got it wrong. Hugo Boss is high-end mall quality.

      Have no boss pieces, won’t buy it because I have the money to get something nicer. Refuse to look down on people wearing Boss though.
      Similar thing with Cinque for me BTW

        When you say nicer, are you saying something that’s usually more bang for your buck over Boss, or nicer as in you’d go for a designer brand? I’m interested about how others perceive certain brands and rate Boss too, but open to knowing what would be a "step up" from them

          No, I’m referring to something that is less bang for your buck, but more bang. It will not look 33% better but cost 400$ instead of 300$.
          In general as you approach excellence you have to pay more and more for ever smaller increases in quality.
          I think the first steps up from a boss suit would be high quality ready to wear brands like Suitsupply, Spier & Mackay or Boggi.
          Followed by Made to Measure suits and bespoke suits after that.

            Thanks for the compliment.
            I think it’s important to not ride the brand train from stuff like Lacoste/Ralph Lauren/Hilfiger to Gucci/LV.
            Going from Boss to Boggi is infinitely more /fashion/

    Vans, Timberland, LL Bean, Levi’s.

    Truthfully, I thrift everything except for shoes. I’m not gonna be walking around in shoes that weren’t broken in by my feet, have some other dudes foot stink, and are already halfway through their life.

    At this point I mainly buy from Luxire and Spier & Mackay. No more hoping that that a company makes something that fits me just right and keeps it in stock.

        Abercrombie: their clothes fit poorly, nothing special about the clothing style, was known as the clothes for “rich mean teenagers” while I was growing up so seeing an Abercrombie logo puts a bad taste in my mouth

        Tommy Hilfiger: my dad wears the brand and will wear any clothing in the house that is not explicitly “mine” (“youthful” or “fashion forward”). Wouldn’t be the biggest problem except he ruins all the clothes he wears, gets food and other dirt on it etc.

        Calvin Klein: Same as Tommy plus I just think the stuff is too basic. I’ll just wear DKNY instead
