T-Shirts
« on: November 15, 2010, 02:48:32 AM »
I am and have been guilty of wearing T-shirts fairly often as many men do. Infact here in America, T-shirts and Hoodies are the staple fashion for just about any male at a college or on there day off. It's terrible (for the most part). I'm looking for ways to improve my fashion. I'm looking for good alternative looks that can be worn casually. I have some items I think are good but I need more to replace my T-shirt wearing habit. I want to look slightly better dressed than everyone else, but not like I'm going to dinner or a club. I would love any ideas or suggestions!

Scales,

check out GQ Magazine, Street Etiquette and The Sartorialist, my personal favorites, but they depend on your general style.

btw nothing wrong with t's yo,

just don't wear comedy tees, please never wear a comedy tee :p

I always wear fitted t shirts, plain black t shirt with dark jeans and nice trainers is fine for the day time yo, just accessorise with some cool chains etc and you'll be fine. Also really nice printed t's, all saints, stussy whatever your style is can be great for an outfit.

Alternatives, try wearing a thin v neck with no t shirt underneath, or a long sleeve grandad top etc. I love knitwear personally and am always wearing thin knit jumpers and cardigans :)

T-shirts are pefectly acceptable attire, provided they aren't those lame "funny" ones, they are well fitted and they are coordinated with everything else.

ps. I'm against comedy ones, but I often go around in band t-shirts. They generally have tasteful designs and I make sure they go with whatever I am wearing. Is this acceptable? If not normally, what if I'm in Camden?

I wear both band t-shirts and comedy ones. I don't think anyone cares so long as you don't look like a tramp.

Honestly idk how most of you guys pull it off, but you have horrible color-cordination.

Plain v-necks or stripped t-shirts could easily be pulled off easier than than those over-detailed,  badly matched, emo-ish styles.

Seriously, i'm a guy who has a BIG girl entourage, they love simplicity in a guys style. As long as you match it well, fit it right, you're in the spot.

Since youre american(canadian here)... for the love of God : AVOID CHUCKS AND ADDIDAS as shoes.
Go for some casual shoes instead. Take some buttom-up shirts (look for trendy ones from h&m and not being dressed as going to a wedding)

If you want the original look, go for bright colors. People respond better to you emotionally when they have bright in their eyes


example of Simplicity

Paulkid I can't agree with the piece of advice you gave. The pictures are horrible. The person who opened the thread said: "I want to look slightly better dressed than everyone else, but not like I'm going to dinner or a club"
Well you just posted some pictures of club outfits which are not special at all and speak of a "player" taste.  You can't wear them on the streets. Secondly never wear a white t-shirt under a shirt. This is one of the worst things you can do in a club.  H&M is also not that kind good as everyone wears it. I often make jokes about girls when I see them in the same H&M skirt or boys who wear the same H&M shirts.

My advice. Well try to find your own style I havent seen a picture of you and I don't know how old you are. Therefore I can't really help you. Generally speaking shirts mostly look better than t-shirts.  Don't get any of those red neck shits :). In case you wear a plain t-shirt combine your t-shirt with a cardigan in a different color.

I'm not a huge fan of humor t-shirts and tshirt with Swarovski on it for an outfit you wear during the day.
Check out lookbook maybe you find someone who pulls of a t-shirt combination you like :)

For what it is worth I almost always am in a tshirt when not in a proper dress shirt. 
I will go black tshirt with nice slacks and proper polished shoes. If it is cold I will wear a black blazer and maybe a fedora.
Here in Las Vegas that outfit will get me into almost any establishment or situation with the exception of where a tie is required and those places here are not that common. It is not too dressy so can be worn for just 'hanging out' but also in a nicer venue. I think it also sparks a certain sense of mystery and sophistication...much more than an "I'm with Stupid" tshirt no?
