I actually get most compliments from women when I wear pastel colors or pink. It isn't just about the color you wear but also how you wear it and how you carry yourself. For instance the man that posted his friend in a many and supposedly 'quite gay' looks isn't quite because of what he's wearing but how he is wearing it and what material it is in. The purple V neck looks fine on him, the facial beard is cut in such an odd way that it just makes him stick out and look peculiar. The pink sweater is just bad taste, the material is too fluffy, the sweater doesn't fit properly, it puffs on him and the color is a cotton candy pink, which men shouldn't be wearing.

Anyway, the OP is absolutely correct, it isn't about what name brand you're wearing, it is all about the fitment. Usually the name brand already has a certain fit and cut pre-made for you so that it is easier to pick off the shelf vs. scavenging through a thrift store.

And please, don't shop at express guys...

Care to elaborate?

I have a few shirts and sweaters from express that are some of my favorites. They fit me extremely well and I like the material. Nothing with gaudy logos or anything of that nature, just plain shirts and polos. Its a shame I can't find their polo's without logo's anymore, the one i own is one of my favorites.

I also get my dress shirts from express. They fit me perfect, unlike other brands I have tried. I recently started shopping at Banana Republic cause they also have some nice fitted dress shirts

I don't want to get too into why I dislike Express, I didn't want to offend anybody out there but for what they're making you pay, the cookie cutter designs are not worth it. There are certain selections from Express that can be pieced together to look good but the majority of their stuff leaves much to be desired.

I do agree with you in regards to some of their designs. And no offense taken everyone is entitled to their own opinion

I agree on the fitment statements.. only issue there is for those that dont have the time to spend shopping for individual pieces for that perfect fit.

Maybe a thread with "what are you wearing today" similar to that posted in the Watches section is in order..
Having time to shop for individual pieces is not as hard as you may think. You'll never find perfect fit otr. My purpose in this post is to get people to think more in terms of selecting clothes that are a better match for their body as opposed to just going after a brand name. Whether it be slim fit or baggy fit...the operative word is fit. So the next time you're out shopping, instead of buying the same old thing, try getting that shirt or pants one size smaller or larger so it fits you better. or how about trying a totally different cut. Everyone seems to think that buying clothes that fit means some long arduous process where you're sitting down with a tailor etc etc. No no no. It's a trial and error process but to start with, just try a different size. Go to whatever big box store and whatever you normally buy, modify it slightly. That's all. This will start you down the right path and it's quick and painless.

^^agree'd, no time to hunt and find the right ones that fit. Takes a lot of work and time lol

To the OP: any tips on how to choose a proper set of shades? Which kind of frames for diff. kinds of faces?
Here's a quick read on choosing frames that better fit your face. Sunglasses are all about proper proportioning. Make sure that you have 2 pairs. One pair for when you're out and about being active....the Oakley type of shades, and then you have your general fashion pair that get the daily wear and special occasion wear. Buy whatever brands you like as long as they compliment your face, but don't feel hard pressed to buy the actual name brand gucci shades. They're sunglasses, they're disposable. Buy the imitations or lower end brands like Kenneth Cole and other fare you might come across in a Marshalls or TJ Max.

I shop around until I find a sales person that knows what there talking about . Put it this way a shirt can come with six different cuffs.... and possibly six different collars..The sales person the most important link in " looking the part " !!

What part of the body is the "correct" place that you judge wither something fits or not?
I would guess the area of your body where the garment (unintentionally) accentuates. If you don't want your manboobs to be the focal point of your shirt then you can either try a darker colored shirt, a looser fitting shirt, or wear a few layers (weather permitting).

Also, no matter how much you pay for a blazer and/or slacks, you should have it tailored unless it fits you perfectly.

As a fellow stylist... I partially agree. when it comes to suiting, dress shirts the more you spend the better it fits... it starts to cost that much because you are paying for fit foremost and then the name. Cheaper clothing for the most part goes to fit masses while the more expensive stuff is going to fit their demographics in the respective sizing.
