    Pretty much everywhere.

    It's hard to find well-fitting clothes if you're skinny and small now the nation is up-sizing...
    Really? I go into any of my local clothes stores and its all blatantly geared at the aforementioned demographic. I have nothing against that, but being only half-white my colour doesn't really go with most of the clothes and I'm sorta more stocky than slim and so all these weird v-neck things and shizzle look ridiculous on me.

    FML.

    Lol, I have the trouble of finding clothes small enough (especially during sales). Even if they 'fit' they usually end up too long. I wonder what this ideal person designers always have in mind looks like? :confused:

    Looking to go a Matt Smith/Doctor Who look, but on a bit of a budget.



    Any ideas where I could get a similar jacket from for below £80?

    Same, I used to be an XSmall in everything so it used to make buying brands that only started at Small impossible. Seem to have gone up a size now though

    Both pairs are disgusting. (puma trainers)

    anyways, what's the difference between leather jackets and leather 'shirt' jackets? Quite a few by Barney's on offer at ASOS.

    Barney's are aways discounted on Asos but someone told me the quality of the jackets was shocking.

    Is this too formal for the sort of smart casual daywear look I was proposing above?

    Not that formal, sports jacket are actually meant for a more relaxed look, they've just jazzed it up by adding a tie and pocket square. It's a nice blazer but personally i'm not a fan of check/squares on blazers or suits, doesn't look good on me. ebay is a good place to look though so you're on the right track, Asos and Topman usually have some nice cheap casual blazers too. I was considering this a while ago as cheapo casualwear but they ran out of my size pretty sharpish and I'd actually pair each item with something else not wear it together as a suit.

    I think I am going for a check one now as I have so many plain jackets. I need something a bit more jazzy :beard:

    It is really hard picking out shirts to go with checkered ones though :sigh:

    what do people think of these G-Star Raw Jeans?

    Really don't like them. The pockets on the front of them look really tacky and similar to low end junk you can find in TK-Maxx. The colour looks tacky as well.

    G-Star don't make good quality jeans especially considering their price. Get some nice Levi, Lee or Nudie Jeans for the same price or consider spening more on APC or Edwin jeans.

    A bit harsh? What's wrong with them?

    I want some new shoes to wear with chinos/shorts. Don't wanna get Vans like everyone else.
