How much clothing is a good base for a man changing his style ?
Hello,I hope this is the right place to ask this if not sorry for the inconvenience tell me where would be the best place to post this. So I am going into my final year of university and I’m looking to start changing my clothing style from the wear whatever I have clean and fits to trying to look better and give a better impression (for both professional and personal). So what I am doing to do this is I am budgeting so much money a pay check to go out a buy a couple items of clothing (nothing to break the bank) but to be able to build up over time. Now what I am wondering is realistically what’s a good basis to have for clothing ? Like how many; casual shirts (tees, Henley’s, button downs, etc.), chinos, dress/formal wear, shoes, socks, and so on, would you consider to be a good base for someone to have so that way they just need to buy something when they need it (like seasons change, wears out, or changes size) and not hurting for clothes on a week to week basis. If it does help I am a bigger set man 6’3” and weigh around 315lbs (American football player build) and because of this I don’t think a true minimalist wardrobe would be good but just looking to get an idea. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

JCF Thomson Slim Fit Chino Suit Review – $84

JCF Thomson Slim Fit Chino Suit Review – $84
Hi all! This is my review of the J. Crew Factory Thomson Slim Fit Chino Suit. I had a lot of questions about this particular suit but I couldn’t find any online so heres my take on it.Here is the albumWhy I bought this: I frequent FMF and came about this post. Now, I asked my self if I needed another suit and the answer was a hard NO. I bought it anyway. A cheap summer suit is good because it’ll allow me to sweat, drink, and travel- without having to worry. I also have some graduations and events coming up, so I couldn’t pass up the opportunity.Price: “Normal” price of the jacket and pants are $168 and $98, which we know is BS JCF price manipulation. I usually see full suits of this style for around $150. Currently the jacket is $69.95 and the pants are $29.95. Throw in the 15% student discount and we have a whopping $84.16. Disclaimer: I also had to pay sales tax which brought the gross total to about $90.Fit: I’m a big fan of the J. Crew Ludlow suiting line (when I find an acceptable price). I have a classic black ludlow suit made from Loro Piana wool & an Italian Chino ludlow suit aswell. The Thomson has a similar fit to the ludlow. It does feel a little bit boxier on me than the ludlow, but still a nice slim fit.Quality: I have no complaints. Obviously, there are very low expectations for a sub $100 suit, but I think the quality is quite fine. Compared to my Ludlow chino suit, this one is a bit thicker. My theory is that the thickness compensates for the lower quality of cotton. It is stiff, as you can see in the photos, and could use a bit of a break in. My ludlow pants were partially lined, but these ones are not.Look: This is a great, slim fitting chino suit. It will need some alterations such as a hem, possibly a taper, and if I want to splurge I may take in the waist. This “pewter gray” is a bit light, although not obnoxious. It looks very summery and I will probably pair it with a knit tie of some sort and some loafers. The light blue is also a great color. I wouldn’t recommend these for an interview since they aren’t the most professional. High school dances, formals, weddings, graduations, the possibilities are endless.Conclusion: For the price, I think everyone should give this a chance. Its a slim fitting suit with great potential. Summer is coming and you don’t want to take chances on that new bespoke that you just bough for no reason at all.

Wool fabric ranking

Wool fabric ranking
I’m about to bite the bullet and go bespoke for a suit and want to educate myself on the various brands of wool fabric. Is there a guide to the quality / price of wool from various mills?For example, if the tailor prices the suit based on the fabric chosen, I’d like to have an idea of the price differences and quality differences of using Loro Piana / Holland & Sherry over VBC.
