Im going shopping on either wed or thurs in nyc..going to soho (broadway/mercer etc area) to buy a bunch of new stuff for college. Im 5'8 ~150 pounds (skinny-fat is a good way to describe me). I dont want to dress like Im in high school anymore (slightly baggy jeans, white air forces, polo shirt is my typical style right now). I want to spend a good amount of money so I look good. Basically I need help with everything -- I need new shoes, jeans, a winter jacket (going upstate for school), a good pair of boots, some tshirts and some long sleeves shirts...maybe even a couple of dressier (is that a word?) shirts. I really need some advice from you tsl'ers. I was looking at purcells for casual shoes, and Ive yet to really look at them on person but after looking at some online I saw some I like...so I think Im going to go with a pair or two or so of those. Maybe some chucks too, although I think they look kind of skinny for my foot I have no idea about shirts/hoodies/jacket/jeans though. I want to dress 'older' so I dont look like a typical high school kid anymore. Basically Im lookiing for advice as to what stores to go to while Im there, and maybe some examples of brands would be cool too. Ive been a jeans and polo shirt guy for 4 years now; while I dont mind it I need a little bit of change. If you guys can reccomend anything -- any article of clothing, it will be a great help. Im really in the dark here, so anything you reccomend would be great. I have a decent amount of money saved up (~1000 or so) so Im hoping I can at least get a good amount of clothes. Any advice at all would be great I looked through the noobie guides here and stuff, and while their was a lot of info it was kinda too much to take in at once I need some individual help. Also, as much as Id love to shop exclusively at dior, I cant buy 3 pairs of jeans for 350$ each. At the very least, I need a (pretty warm, it snows a lot in Binghamton) jacket, boots, and a few outfits/shoes. Any advice at all that you guys can give me would be absolutely amazing cliffs: need new clothes for school, going to soho this week, need advice on what stores and whatnot to check out; im 5'8 ~150 "skinny-fat"
