    what are those dudes called in the congo that wear those fancy suits in the shanty towns
    they're gang members but instead of having shootouts they just have impromptu fashion runways or something?

    some of the shit they sell on Gilt makes me want to ram my thumbs into my eyesockets

    those gold Gola sneakers are pretty tempting although it sucks that they don't come in half-sizes

    yeah those Jill Sanders suits were awful

    with the orange and the color-block ones

    jesus

    I mean I am all for distinctive clothes but rein that shit in a bit

    that's really my only qualm with Gilt outside of their occasionally-questionable legitimacy

    a lot of the things they sell are just audaciously gaudy clusterfucks that nobody in their right mind would ever actually wear

    i enjoy them a lot more when they sell nice, simple threads on the cheap

    which luckily they do more often than not

    I mean honestly even if you are a person on a budget you can ignore all the $500+ stuff on there and still get some really great deals

    Those Gola shoes are almost all like $40 and they are rad as shit

    it's weird

    i know why people wear suits

    but in day to day life, outside of mere comfort

    why do we wear jeans, t-shirts and shorts and sorta stick within that framework

    Marked down from $228 to $98

    I would not spend $230 on shoes barring a lifestyle truly alien from the one I could possibly lead in the next ~10 years, but I would spend $100.

    well many people step outside of t-shirts and shorts

    but I think comfort, convenience and price are pretty much the main reasons right there

    I fuckin' love suits though

    My latest acquisition was an ebay buy of trousers with no belt loops, but rather buttons for braces.

    This made me absurdly happy, because fuck belts. I don't generally have any qualms with modern fashion, but I have a vendetta against belts for basically removing proper braces (not bloody clipons!) and the trousers to which you can attach them from the market.

    Making waistlines look shitty sine 1950.

    Yeah they are a bit shiny.

    Nice thing is though I see shoes like that pretty much non-stop on gilt.

    That Italian shoe-maker they had last week was fucking incredible

    I hope they bring them back when I have money

    how does one introduce a new fish into the water

    it seems like shoes had it easy

    it could be novelty or function but people were always willing to branch out with footwear first

    like them big fucking sketchers with the big ol' bottoms or the pump reeboks, or hell light up sneakers. crocs? crocs are you fucking kidding me?

    Hmmm, I could probably do with a pair of loafers to round out my collection, but I tend not to wear shoes around the house anyway.

    Ah well, I'll just wait for tomorrow I suppose.

    So I sort of need to overhaul my wardrobe entirely

    Over the next three months I think I can reasonably budget about $2,000 to that end

    does that seem reasonable? Lower? Higher?

    depends entirely on what you're looking to do in terms of overhauling

    honestly I have not entirely answered this question

    I know I am going to need some work-suitable shirts, belts, pants, and ties for my new job, but blazers are not required, so I think for the most part I would want a few but mostly cotton for casual wear instead of formal (plus DC is too fucking hot for wool right now).

    But I mean I could also use some more casual stuff. Everything from a few packs of white t-shirts from Hanes (regular and v-neck), to (maybe?) some raw denim jeans.

    Honestly volume is not a huge concern for me so much as really enjoying what I do end up owning.

    raw denim is always a fine choice imo but make sure you try it on in person. i've been screwed by buying raw denim online because the sizing is sometimes weird

    if you're just looking to buy simple stuff like blue/white button-up shirts, nice chinos and jeans, a pair or two of beater oxfords then $2,000 might be a bit high

    buying a suit might put you somewhere in that range but even nice suits can be found at very affordable prices if you know where to look

    Well uh

    That is not counting

    I have also budgeted for a D&G suit

    I really shouldn't but I'll still be able to save about 3.5k from the time on the job, which isn't bad

    I don't look great in traditional suits

    I look like a little kid wearing his dad's clothes or something

    Generally, in all things, the slimmer and sleeker the clothing is, the better it looks on me

    fair enough

    as long as you've got a body type that lends itself well to that type of cut and make sure it fits you well you should look like a million bux

    you better get some ballin' shoes and cufflinks to go with that suit, though

    and your tie better be the FINEST SILK

    Yeah, my body type is pretty much slim-fit ONLY. And I do tend to look quite good in a slim-fit suit.

    I bet these get stinky.

    And probably cause lots of toe jam.

    But I would buy them anyway, just to be more comfy.

    You can just throw them in the washing machine then hang them up to dry

    I'm going to pick myself up a pair of VFF's when summer rolls 'round and do some walking around in 'em.

    Maybe on some trails in the mountains 'round here.

    Gonna need to start doing some barefoot walking before that though to get my feet and legs used to it. Hmm.

    These are my newest pair of dress shoes. Was getting sick of black so went for something different, but only in a subtle way.
    Spoiler:

    I wanted to buy these, but they were a little bit too hard to justify paying for, even on special... around $300AUD I think.
    Spoiler:


    edit: my other pair of nicer dress shoes are similar to this, only less rows of laces.
