    Hi,

    I'm a 24 year old man and I've been given £1000 by a relative (long story!). I want to spend some of it on buying new clothes as my wardrobe is really old and boring.

    Any ideas on what clothes to buy?

    A very vague question.
    I take it as you feel you've got 'old and boring' clothes, you're looking for some modern fashionable up to date ones?
    If you want the decent elegant stuff then places like Debenhams, John Lewis etc. do some great quality clothes. If you want the more 'hip and cool' kind of clothes there's topman, river island, burtons etc.
    Asos is awesome, you'll find clothes of all ranges there...the really good bargains and the expensive designer ones too, great variety.

    Just because you have money to spend it doesnt mean you have to go out and buy designer clothes. For alot of things they simply are just making you pay for a label. Hunt around and try everything on!

    Heck, maybe even take a woman with you. One your age who dresses her self well, girls seem to love dressing guys especially when you tell them you have alot of money to spend!

    depends what sort of look you want as well.
    some of my friends spend loads of dosh on lyle ans scott and fred perry stuff but i really dont like that look and for me i could get a lot more and nicer clothes for less.

    raulph lauren looks good on everyone and abercrombie if you want some nice expensive t-shirts or jumpers.

    i say get a lot of nice clothes from the high street that and then spend the rest on nice designer t-shirts and maybe a real nice jacket

    Don't waste your money!

    By all means buy a few designer items (some sunglasses, or something smart), but there really is no need to buy things like designer polo shirts; things like that, you really are paying for the label.


    Go to your nearest shopping centre or large high street and browse, try things on, even things you don't like, you might find you like it when it's on you.

    Go with things that you like, and you feel comfortable in. Take a friend to consult with if you're unsure of yourself.

    Umm abercrombie is over worn rubbish, with desiegner clothes you are not just paying for the label, the fred perry polo is unique and universally recognized and is also worn by most celebs

    I would advise against buying anything too fashionable. You might be better spending money on a few really, really good items that are of a better quality, will go with lots of other things, and will last longer. There's only so much variation you want in, say, jeans, and it's nice to have a pair that you like to wear and which fit you really well. If they're well made and flatter you, then you can use them to make other cheaper items look better. And it you have 3 pairs of jeans that you are really comfy wearing, then you have no need for 10 other pairs, because you won't feel a desire to wear any beyond the really comfy 3 pairs.

    What kind of things you choose depends on what you feel comfy in. I agree that you should take someone with you, and get their opinions, but there's no point in giving yourself a radical makeover if you're not going to wear any of it. Look at what you have already, assess why you like it, then try to find new items that incorporate the features you like, while making sure you choose nice, flattering, stylish things that are practical and comfortable enough for you to adjust to wearing them

    Get some good shoes (£100-200 or so)
    Get a quality jacket (£200-£400 or so)
    Some good jeans (£100)

    Then you can shop around for other stuff at a good price. Having a good jacket and shoes will make everything else look good, you can get t shirts, vests, shirts, underwear for pretty cheap.

    I have a rule where if I'm going to spend a fair bit on something I want it to be something which will last at least 10 years and which I'll wear for at least 10 years, eg £300 jacket = £30 a year. Girls who live in primark will easily spend £300 in about 3 years on jackets.
