    Ok I had everyone multi-quoted out but it was just too long of a post. I read through everything you guys said (sorry for the late reply) I do appreciate all your thoughts; I did start to check out Esquire and GQ which gave me some good advice; I agree with a lot of the stuff you guys said but there is some I was unsure of or didn't agree with. I'm looking for pictures of the styles I like (although not sure how they will look on me)

    Why cant I wear toe squared shoes? I have several dress shoes that are squared instead of pointed...I personally am not a big fan of pointed.




    I tried this style once, it didn't work out to well... but I do really like it; maybe I will make a trip to H&M to start and go from there?

    What is the best place to shop for these? I'm talking mostly Europe and need some jeans, a shirt, a vest on top of it and that's probably it. Would H&M be a good place to start? Zara? Bershka? New Yorker? For example I don't usually pay too much attention to what piece of wardrobe is priced. I could get the hefty price tag if it fits good, but will also buy something cheap that does the same.

    Honestly? Don't shop at any of the stores mentioned above. I'd rather try to find local shops that offer rather high-end brands, since they sometimes also offer, well, brands for starters if you will. Do you have Peek & Cloppenburg over in Croatia? I'll shoot Turbo an E-Mail later on, maybe he knows 1-2 stores that might have something in that direction in stock. But if you like last page's write up, avoid Zara, H&M, New Yorker and all that other crap. I couldn't think of worse stores for anything clothing related.

    Well we have almost all the popular brands over here, but it's mostly overrated and utterly expensive. For example putting prices that give them high prices that go quite a bit from the ones in Austria, Germany or Italy. Maybe the best option would be to go to Italy for the shopping.

    As I've mentioned, what looks good on me and makes me feel good I'll buy it. Whether it's a 20€ shirt from Zara, or a 150€ vest from Lacoste. But the brand I like very much is Scotch & Soda. Got a couple of things from them. Built with quality, not that expensive and it looks good.

    Maybe I forgot to mention, the main issue with me is the size. I'm over 2m so that provides some difficulties when shopping for clothes ...

    Any worthwhile fashion blogs out there? Not looking for crazy, cutting edge style, just something to check out some stuff.

We always thought about opening up a store somewhere in Eastern Europe, because the margins are fvckin ridiculousness. They sell it to the stores for €1.5 and the stores adds a discount label or something on it and re-sells it for €19.95. At one point when more and more guys were pulling up in M5s and RS6s we really thought about opening one up. Let me get my shit going and maybe I can get us all in one room and think about how we can make some money. Their products sell with Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren and Armani over here.

    Sorry for being too OT. Shoot me a PM if you like to know more. I'll try to find some outfits digagandiddidi in a few as well.
    That's exactly the main issue here! It's a retardred way of thinking, but as you've said, a great way to make some money. For example you could open a store that sells some unknown brand, do some promotion, get some free merchandise to selected groups of people, spread the hype and be earnining 120% on each item over here.

    Let me know when you get a more detailed idea, we need to talk! Definitely it's a great opportunity!

    for men fashion does not change much so. Stick with the basics, slim or fitting. Boot cuts skinny and other trend cuts go in and out of style quick. some of your pieces can be used and modernized with certain accessories, shoes, pant style, sweater etc. all depends. to better answer your question I would need to see what you currently have and build off what you do and do not have. That in my opinion is the best way to do it!
