    I'm going to be a sophomore in college in the fall, I haven't bought anything beyond basic Hollister polos/jeans since sophomore year of high school. :o

    I'll have $1200 by the second week of August, and I've decided to devote all/most of it to completely revamping my wardrobe.

    I have absolutely no idea where to start, but I figured you guys could help. :wavey:

    I'm 5'9", white, 150 pounds @ ~8-10% body fat, with short brown hair and blue eyes. I'm kind of pale skinned naturally, but I get a decent tan during the summer. I want semi-professional clothing, because I'm a waiter and I might be going to grad school next year.

    Suggestions? :dunno:

    i think you should start with getting basic, versatile items that you can get a lot of wears out of .. neutral colors are good for basics. focus on finding items that fit you well, are well constructed, and are made of quality material

    - a pair of dark-wash premium denim jeans
    - a few well fitted button up shirts (i like ben sherman shirts for guys)
    - knit sweater
    - skinny tie
    - fitted blazer
    - a pair of boots
    - some solid colored shirts

    --------

    some other ideas ... i think these pieces look great on guys when worn right:
    - fitted vest
    - fedora :yum:
    - cardigan
    - black skinny jeans

    all cool with me except the black skinny jeans :o ... dunno why, but i despise black jeans

    oh and the skinny tie needs a well put-together outfit for it to work, so be weary

    i wouldnt go black jeans either. i dont like them much. i only own one pair, because they are a sick pair of sevens, and they are being customized right now. if you like the professional look i wouldnt go with the black jeans because they will most likely look punk
