I've recently overhauled my wardrobe simplifying it down to T-shirts (mostly for gym or weekend wear), polo's, dress shirts from light to dark/patterns. sweaters with only 1 hoodie, and 2 casual sports coats from gap, and a grey suit, for which a have a interchangeable brown jacket. I also made a note to buy some younger stylish pieces for the weekends when I go out. as far as shoes its Clarks, Rockport brown leather, or a pair of casual canvas shoes, and Nike's for the gym or sporty activities. I'm still on the lookout for a nice casual boot for riding my motorcycle, that's within a $100 max price range any suggestions?

John, 

I honestly couldn't have said it better myself! Nothing to add.

Hey Mitchell,

I do enjoy the polo look and would say that you are certainly doing it right. I also frequent dress shirts but am more casual in wearing them; Leave the top couple unbuttoned, untuck, and roll up the sleeves. This along with a well matched pair of khaki's or dress pants never seems to attract more attention than I'm looking for.

Also, I made my transition in dress fairly slowly. I started at the tail end of my teens wearing hoodies and jeans, slowly added in sweaters nicer pants, and later polos, dress shirts/pants and the occasional jacket over the course of a year or so and my friends never really felt the urge to point it out. They just know me as the 'classy person' now and probably wouldn't be terribly put off if I went to dinner in a 3-peice suit. That being said, they all pretty much still wear jeans and hoodies (not that there is anything wrong with that), so what is a suit to them.

I have actually begun the same thing as Mitchell has. I have decided to wear more polo's and khakis instead of tees

I really like this clothing style, I was wondering if anyone knew of a place I could inexpensively duplicate.

WTF is this about!! Maybe you don't have style, maybe you dot feel a need to dress appropriately for a certain occasion, but for for gods sake HAVE SOME CLASS an wear an actual belt!!

Scott, that is a truly disturbing image. How difficult would it be to at least make an attempt to dress respectfully for a funeral?
Comment by Scott L Ferrell on August 2, 2010 at 9:27am
I do not know if this is the site to vent, but I have to go somewhere. I was at a funeral service the other day, black suit, white shirt, black tie, sapphire tie pin, black wingtips, I was surrounded by full grown men in shorts and flipflops, at a funeral. Would it have killed them to wear big boy pants and shoes for two hours?
