    I'm not a guy, but I'd suggest getting some layers, yeah. Maybe some shirts, some cardigans, some jumpers... you can still wear the t-shirts, just add another layer- which will be useful for autumn/winter but could also not get too hot for the summer.

    I can't really think of a 'summer wardrobe' for a guy, I tend to prefer guys fashion in the colder months, I'm afraid.

    However, maybe some lightweight shirts would be nice? Linen type shirts? I know what I mean but maybe you won't...

    It depends, do you want to wear the clothes that r 'in season' or just wear different things to what you normally wear?

    Use this website http://www.fashionbeans.com/category...ended-fashion/

    It shows some of the fashionable clothes of the season and how to wear them etc. A very good and useful site.

    I really don't get this. The recession's made the whole improvisation look popular again so designer's are making things look like binbags, and probably able to sell them! oii

    no one that site is poor, unless you are a model wannabe.

    anyway:
    1. Blue jeans are amazing, but maybe buy some that look a bit diffrent. Go into topman they have a good selection.

    2.While you are their look around see what catches your eye, there is a lot of rave type stuff at the moment, but look at the cardigans navy or gray are always safe colours.

    3. wander round a few shops, topman/ river island/ burton/ primark other local shops and pick up t shirts with designs on.

    4. Polo shirts are amazing, H & M have some good ones, also look in here for some different trousers if you want something other than jeans. Also Superdry, Abercrombe and Ralph if you have more money to spend.

    5.Buy a pair of white converses and a coulored belt or black and a black belt. Always make sure your belt and shoes go together.

    Finally.

    STAY AWAY from 3/4 lengths, river island and burton are good for shorts. and buy a pair of flip flops, surf brands are the best, but nothing over the top and garish.

    I'll find some links if you like any of this stuff.

    I've never really been happy with the clothes I wear, mostly I end up sticking to jeans and plain T-shirts, a lot of the time I feel like my look is a bit dull, generic and dorky. Anyway, I'm starting uni in September and wanted to add a little variety to my wardrobe. I figure a few new things will give me more options, make things a bit more interesting, so I'd love some advice here with a couple of things. Sorry if its a bit vague, I really don't know what I'm looking for. Just assume you're talking to a complete fashion retard, that wud be great

    What sort of stuff should I be looking to add? Like what are the essential things that most guys should own? Really the only tops I ever wear are plain T-shirts. I don't really know what else to go with? Should I be adding more layers, or trying other stuff? Also, normally I end up sticking to a few shorts and 4 pairs of plain blue jeans. What other stuff do you guys wear? I'm thinking combats and maybe some 3/4 lengths, or does everyone always wear jeans?
    The only other things I can think of are belts, and I only own about 2 of these. Again, not really sure Im looking for here.

    Just wrote you a nice post thought you might like to know . see above.

    OP, are you wanting to buy for Summer or Autumn? I'm guessing the latter.

    There is nothing wrong with plan tshirts infact I htink its great - printed tees are a bit naff in my opinion. You cant really wear them all the time whilst with plain tshirts you can mix and match.

    I think you should be looking for adding layers such as white tshirt under a check shirt and buying accessories to tie a look together. Sounds a bit gay but if you want to make it look like you made an effort then thats my advice.

    Here is some nice looks imo (except the 2nd guy)


    Stick with dark jeans and white trainers and just mix and match tops.

    If you think your tshirts are dull, why not try and get more themed ones, depending on what you like. For example, band tshirts, or nice cartoon ones.

    From your post, can't really tell what kind of style you're into, but an example of a guy with good style would be:

    I wouldn't wear combat trousers or 3/4's, lol, get some decent shorts and jeans, polo shirts, rugby tops, wool jumpers, good t-shirts and some nice hoodies and you'll be set.
    I wouldn't wear too many layers, and don't get the cheapest stuff, I've got loads of Ralph lauren stuff and it's all good quality and fits well.

    Abercrombie and Superdry? They are too overpriced imo. A superdry black tshirt that just had the logo in gold, I saw at Bank, was £25 quid.

    Ralph Lauren is good though. If you have more money to spend I think places like Zara and Urban Outfitters - they arent very expensive but still good expecially Zara, everything there is good quality.

    Oh and instead of converses OP, you could get just normal plain white trainers like some Nike ones or something.

    Hello mate,
    1. Get at least 1 Fred Perry polo, Lyle & scott polo and Ralph Lauren Polo Shirt, these are wardrobe standards and everyone has to have at least one.
    2. Go to Uniqlo get something checkered, shorts or a shirt
    3. Get a Lyle & Scott or Fred Perry Cardigan in Grey
    4. Get a fancy Jumper Ralph Lauren or something like that in Red or Blue or Green
    5. Get a hoody
    6. Get some trackies, they are perfect for lounging around in which I'm sure you will be doing a lot off at Uni
    7. Finally Get a nice plain blue shirt ralph Lauren or Lyle & Scott, perfect when you want to add some smartness to an outfit when you hit the town.
    P.S.
    8. Have a good look around for all these things, sales or ebay are great also ive started gettin stuff off Ioffer.com it is where all the cheap knock offs from china are sold, some are not knock offs they are excellent replicas, e.g. ive just got 3 ralph Lauren Hoodies that look perfect for £55 and yes thats £55 for all 3

    Cheers Nick
