RE: Fashion and Style Lounge
For guys that are used to having a semi-casual/rock style when going out (e.g. flannel or denim shirts with or without t-shirt underneath) and are wondering about trying out a new style: give a shot at better quality formal cotton shirts.

I recently bought a couple of those, one in black and one in white. Although they are not casual, they are pretty versatile and can be worn with jeans, chinos, dress pants, sports jacket or blazer or simply your winter coat.

This is not really something new, but I had personally underappreciated the value of wearing a good shirt and the confidence boost. Can also say I notice a difference in getting attention. I feel like I stand out more. As with everything else, fit is king.

   

If it won't matter in 30 years, it doesn't matter now.

RE: Fashion and Style Lounge
I am having trouble finding non-hipster/ non- metrosexual/ non-modern clothing. At least, I think I am going to the wrong stores. If I want a suit, I go to Macy's or a similar store. However, for anything casual man wear, there's HM, Old Navy, Academy, and that's about it. So far, most stores I go to, the clothing selection is questionable. I want to dress more masculine. I dont want skinny jeans, but I dont want too big of jeans. I don't want those stylistic shirts with stripes or girly like technique. I want something simple, yet doesn't make me look like I just threw it on from a thrift store. I'm slim with some muscle, but not bulking muscle.

H&M, Old Navy, and other outlets like that are fashion-forward stores. They stock their own brand and are always designed based on the current fashion trends. You want something more "timeless" while staying casual? Do it piece-meal or go to department stores. JC Penny sells Levi's Jeans. Doesn't get much more classic-yet-casual than that. Get some plain v-neck or crew neck T-shirts, can buy that shit at TJMaxx in 3-packs. Nice flannel shirts can be found at any department store or an outdoors outlet. If you want cheap dress shirts go to Men's Warehouse or similar menswear - they also sell nice sweaters and things like that.

Also, don't go to Macy's for suits. Even if you are trying to get a cheap suit at least go to Men's Warehouse or something where you have a better idea of the materials, quality, and on-site tailoring. You can still get a full off the racks suit there for like $300 or less with some custom tailoring.

You sound like a basic chick's profile on a dating site. "I'm a homebody but like nights out. I like working out but don't mind being lazy. Etc."

Post pictures of what type of clothing you like and people can point you in the right direction.

RE: Fashion and Style Lounge
Would appreciate some advice here.
I am 21, 6'2'', 170. Dark features but light skin. Looking to adopt a "look" that I like.
I know this sounds kind of funny but I thought it would be cool to dress like the cigar smoking rich drug dealers with a button down to shirt and pleated khakis with dress shoes. Problem is I am skinny so loose pants don't look good on me. The other option is jeans, chukkas, and a peacoat/leather jacket. I like this because I am lazy and this outfit looks fine without frequent cleaning and lasts a long time. Thing is im not the rugged "bad boy" type. Which do you prefer?

RE: Fashion and Style Lounge
Here are some articles that can offer some good ideas for those who want to improve how they dress:
https://putthison.com/six-suggestions-fo...nal-style/

https://wellbuiltstyle.com/how-to-build-...and-again/

https://wellbuiltstyle.com/the-4-princip...lar-style/

https://dieworkwear.com/post/17267283265...complexion

Some would call the above links boring but better to learn some classics/fundamentals before spending lots on stuff that may not fit the look you are going for.

You need to learn the rules before you can break them.

Good links overall. I would further reduce the whole affair to:

1. The best clothes you can get for yourself is a good, in shape body.
2. Stick to the basics
3. Experiment slowly
4. Polarize when you develop confidence + unique style

I'm pretty ignorant when it comes to dressing well so what would you says are the basics for a young guy?

No boring at all. In my opinion Wellbuiltstyle is the best advice around for masculine guys. He is also reachable in twitter. Good guy.
