    Looking nice

    I really need to get one of those lint catcher roller things if I am ever going to wear a black shirt again

    I have a nice black t shirt with a cool little design on it from Tired Hands Brewing and it's constantly covered in lint and hair and it looks awful

    That black and white jacket from Straight to Hell came in and I'll have to exchange it for a size smaller, but aside from that it's quite nice

    I DID also order a scarf from them though, and it has tigers on it, and that's cool

    I trimmed my beard.

    I'm frustrated with it. I'm really bad at getting it to look not frizzy.

    I think I might shave it all off in May.

    the only thing I personally could see getting is the phone case, novelty gets a lot of leeway I feel (although I prefer either simple black practical cases, or a really fun, colorful design). But it's for iphones only, so NO DEAL

    the first aid spray bottle sleeve is cute though

    How long do Uniqlo stuff last? Is it comparable quality to Old Navy?

    I am not familiar with Old Navy but I guess Uniqlo stuff are pretty durable? I like their quick dry clothing. But then again I don't think I ever had any clothes being spoiled other than through my own fault, that or somehow it disappeared one day forever.

    edit:

    I still wear this shirt from 6 years ago and it's still pretty comfortable as heck other than being a little thinned out
    It's just a normal t-shirt but it just feels so much better than others for some reason

    uniqlo is definitely more durable than old navy in my experience

    i really like the uniqlo u stuff but that stuff is harder to find in person (easier online) but the fit is weirder than their normal stuff, so buying online is trickier

    (also uniqlo was better for me when it first came to the US, because it was a japanese brand and i am a small indian boi, not a big american boi - but they've since adjusted their fits to better accommodate western folk. still good though, just not as perfect)

    Uniqlo jeans tend to fit me absolutely perfectly until they get washed a couple times then they're too small. Other than that everything's durable and long lasting and actually comes in the right sizes for me which is a huge help.

    Does anybody know of a good fashion blog or instagram or website that can help with basic fashion tips? My problem is that I will see something I like in a store and I won't know what to wear with it or how to wear it. I have a denim jacket that I wear with a dress that looks good but when else can I wear a denim jacket? With dress pants? With jeans ?? When I can wear knee high boots? What footwear do I wear with a skirt? Things like that.

    I googled for fashion tips and got really vague unhelpful advice. Stuff like "know your body type" and "invest in a pair of red pumps" but no advice on what to wear/ what not to wear with each pre-defined body type and nothing on when to wear red pumps and what goes with them. They expect you to already know that stuff I guess.

    There are some basic rules, but a lot of fashion is experimenting and seeing what looks good

    If you are uncertain of your own judgment in such things, I would recommend the judgment of others - I have a few trusted fashion friends, or the folk who linger here tend to have good taste overall

    Uniqlo quality is really good - in my experience Old Navy stuff literally falls apart after a very short while. In comparison, I still wear Uniqlo pieces that I bought while living in Korea six years ago.

    Honestly, browsing fashion blogs (and magazines, if available) is probably the best passive absorption mechanism I can think of. Seeing some random picture and thinking "Hey I think that looks rad, and they have a similar body-type/colouring to me, so I could probably pull that off!" is a great way to start putting looks together.

    edit: i mean this does lead to me spending 18 months hunting down the perfect set of wide-leg pants so I can vaguely ape Katherine Hepburn circa 1938, but we all have to have goals.

    i have a nice new short sleeve shirt

    i shoulda copped one of those big polka dot ones though

    but this one is nice and has little flowers and is more conservative

    i got a medium instead of a small because summer i decided should be more roomy and flowy so less sweaty

    I'd love for people to give me their favourite blogs or "influencers". I have already tried googling and searching in Instagram but the fashion is too young or completely impractical for a regular human person living their life. I've been trying to notice outfits in every day life but even if I see something cool I will forget it by the time I get to a store.

    As a short broad man I have been afraid of Uniqlo, on the grounds that it will have the H&M problem of mediums being a little too tight and larges being too long and a little baggy around my middle. That's probably unfair and I really should give them a try.

    @Taya

    for like, "normal people" street fashion some suggestions might be The Satorialist , Stockholm Street Style, Easy Fashion Paris, Streetgeist ... Personally I always find this stuff a bit hit or miss, partly because it's literally pics of randos walking around, and partly because an outfit being 'interesting' might not be the same as 'looking good'. Sometimes you see something amazing, sometimes you go through eight pages of 'eh' before hitting anything that vibes with you.

    If there's a particular mid- to high-end shop you like, or have bought an item of clothing which you love at, it's worth checking out their ad campaigns, because those will be professionally assembled outfits which can give hints about lengths, colours, accessories etc which hopefully already match your aesthetic. My go-tos are places like Veronika Maine (https://global.veronikamaine.com/Campaign) and Anthropologie, even though I can't necessarily afford the clothes, because I know I usually like the style choices.

    Thanks tynic I will check those out. I agree that sometimes I will see an outfit online or in a magazine and think whoa that's so cool! but would never actually wear it myself.

    I'm still hoping to find a dummies guide to not wearing socks with sandals and other basic fashion rules but I may have to just observe and write down my own rules based on what I see.
