What do people like to see? A guy following latest trends or sticking to his personal style?
I’m a 18yo and was just tired of wearing clothes that fit me like a second skin or something close to that, I’ve always had a liking for loose fitting clothes that were fairly common in the 80’s and 90’s in the middle class working men and think that they’ll suit my personality as I’m an ecology student and work more in the lab and the field rather than on the course. But I could never wear these clothes until now cause its almost impossible to find them and my dad didn’t tell me that he has like a whole abandoned wardrobe of his clothes from the 90’s which he doesn’t wear anymore. And I honestly think that my dad looked attractive in those kinda clothes not in a flashy way, when I looked at his photos from late 80’s. So I have like 10 straight pleated trousers in different earthen shades and around 20 baggy shirts which are my size. I’m thinking of abandoning all my current clothes and sticking with my dad’s old clothes. Should I do it guys? (I wanna do it but don’t know if people will think I’m a weirdo)

Learning about style before ENTIRE wardrobe makeover

Learning about style before ENTIRE wardrobe makeover
Hi you well dressed men,Here’s my situation: I’m 25 and hate literally my entire wardrobe, like I actually want to burn the whole thing in a grease fire. And soon I will. You see, I’ve had gynecomastia since early teens (man boobs from hormonal imbalance) which basically ruined any hope of dressing well for me since I wasn’t able to deal with it well psychologically. I could never feel comfortable in any tshirts except graphic tees that hid my boobs but made me look 15 years old and restricted all other clothes. Like why look into and buy a leather jacket and boots if I’m just gonna wear it with a shirt that makes it look super out of place? It also made it hard to lose weight since I knew I would look weird as an in-shape guy with boobs (at least when I’m fat the boobs look like they have a reason for being there), as weird as it is it made me feel a bit more comfortable to be fat.Anyway, I got them removed! I am no longer a literal soy boy. But I can’t start buying clothes yet because I need to lose weight – I’m 8 kgs down in the 2 months since I was allowed to exercise after surgery, I reckon I’ve got another 3 months to go. I’ll 100% do it because for the first time in my life I’m actually excited (not nervous) for the end result, so the standard ‘don’t rely on losing weight, dress for how you look now’ isn’t applicable. So I figure I’ve got time to start to learn what I’m doing before trying on/buying clothes.So my question is: what’s the best ‘learn completely from scratch’ resource(s) you know? I’ve read the sidebar. I want to learn about style as if out of a textbook for 15 mins a day, build up knowledge without experimentation. Inspo albums for beginners also welcome ofc, but I think it’ll help less.My motivation for this way to approach it is to build a good, classic, basic wardrobe very quickly once I can buy clothes. I know you’re supposed to do it slowly, but I’m so sick of dressing like I do and tbh I was lucky enough to buy ethereum years ago so I’m newly cashed up and don’t really care if I splurge a lot and then end up throwing a lot of it out later. I’ll experiment with my personal style later

New job in finance and I don’t know anything about formal wear

New job in finance and I don’t know anything about formal wear
Hello,I’ve gotten a new job which I’ll be starting soon and I’ll need to wear a suit and tie every day. I know nothing about formal wear and I have a few questions (some of which are probably incredibly basic).I currently have a charcoal grey suit and a dark navy suit, I’m going to purchase a lighter blue suit from suit supply this weekend. Is three suits enough? Or should I also buy a 4th?Should I change/rotate my suit every day?With a grey/navy/blue suit do the following shoes work? I’m going to purchase a pair of brown derby shoes that I saw this weekend. In terms of colour, will the brown shoes go with my three suits? I also currently have a pair of brown suede loafers and an old, somewhat worn pair of black square toed loafers (square toe is a faux pas apparently?).I’ve read that brown shoes can be a controversial topic (no brown in town etc.), but I can recall from my interviews that the interviewers were wearing a mix of black and brown shoes so it should be ok I think.Is £350 for the suit and £200 for the shoes a reasonable budget?I already have plenty of shirts of various colours, each week I can wear 1 white, 2 light blue, 2 light pink. Are these colours ok and do they work with each suit?All of my shirts have French cuffs, is this overly pretentious?Regarding socks, can I just wear black socks every day? Or do they have to match my suit trousers?How do I pick a tie? What am I trying to match it to? Is it acceptable to wear a skinny tie? I’m quite thin so I don’t particularly like the look of a regular width tie.Regarding coats/jackets, I currently have a heavy wool overcoat for the winter. What can I buy for rain? and what can I buy as a lighter overcoat for when it’s a bit chilly but not cold enough for the winter overcoat? I was considering possibly picking up some kind of full length trench coat for rainy weather but I have no idea of what I should buy for a lighter overcoat. Can I pick up something relatively cheap (£100) from a store like Zara for this? Or should I invest a bit more? Ideally I wouldn’t spend more than £250 on a coat.I’ll be based in London if that makes any difference.Thanks in advance for any advice!

Does anyone have a good harrington jacket inspo album?
I’m seeing these jackets everywhere on here. I don’t get the hype, but I’d be open to having my mind changed.Maybe it’s just my own associations with it, but when I think about these jackets, I always picture a middle-aged dad wearing a tan one. No offense to anyone here.If anyone has any albums or even just a few pictures of these jackets in a modern outfit, I’d love to see them.
