    poll above!

    Hi,

    Currently my entire closet consists of lame t-shirts that I've gotten for free over the years that look kind of like this
    and cheap jeans.

    Is this normal? Do you think I should upgrade? Let's say I have about £30/$50 to spend on new clothes. Should I bother getting anything new, and if so, what?

    Haha, it's not a real big deal, but I feel better when I feel good about my clothes. I'd either like some reassurance that what I wear now is normal even if it is tiring (I find myself wearing the same t-shirt for a couple of days at a time) or some advice on what to do with my tight budget!

    Oh, by the way, I really like winter because I can wear the same sweater over these t-shirts every day but since it looks nice, it doesn't ever matter. But now it's summer! :coma:

    Just get some nicer expensive straight legged jeans (if you get tight jeans, or bootcut, you are a homosexual.)

    My bf does pretty much the same thing and it suits him well.

    If it suits you then I see no reason at all to change!

    Get a few shirts. You don't need to overhaul your entire closet, but it's nice to have some non-tshirts every now and then.

    jeans and tshirts are fine, as long as you have some good jackets, cardigans, jumpers etc to go over them and accesorize well

    Well for men you essentially can only wear jeans and a t-shirt (i hate shirts), there's not that much variety with men's clothes.

    I'd suggest trying ebay (search retro/vintage) for new clothes if you need some more because these seem to have more variety and inkeep with the style you seem to have. If you want designer clothes that aren't too expensive try asos.com, they sell some good stuff. Also try investing in a jacket/blazer.



    Atleast you aren't wearing those Lyle & Scott jumpers.

    Definitely a few shirts, for non-tshirt days. A blazer is good also, if you like that kind of style. If you get the right one, it can also go over t-shirts without looking too crap, and is good to have as an extra layer on days that are half-way between hot and cold.

    Nothing wrong with tees like that, way better than the generic crap you see a lot of the time. Might want to get trousers that aren't jeans though, cargo or baggy black work trousers would look decent.

    You do get different styles of tee/shirt aswell so maybe look at stuff that is different to the normal short sleeve tee. Long sleeve grandads are good as a tee or shirt imo.
