I’m looking for good sources of affordable men’s fashion - either in print, on the web, or whatever. My wife says I have good taste but I personally hate shopping and the hit-and-miss nature of going to the store. I’m looking for solid, already available advice that says “buy this, do this, you’ll look like a million dollars.”
Oh, and I don’t have a million dollars to spend. I make a decent, middle class living but have a wife, kid, mortgage, car payment, etc. I usually balk at GQ because they’ll picture really nice shirts for (choke!) $250. I can’t afford to spend $1500 on a single outfit.
I’m in my early 30’s but I look like I’m in my mid-late 20’s, so I can wear younger styles. I’m not interested in the suit-and-tie look. I want something that looks professional but stands out as different in a normal corporate environment.
So, any good sources for this type of information? Do I just need to modify what I find in GQ and look for it at the local Kohl’s? Do I need to get a fashion consultant? Or do I just have to bite the bullet and start shopping upscale?
Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated.
