What are some good mens wardrobes?

Asked by dreamwolf (3155points) September 14th, 2011

So I live in San Diego, CA. I’ve got a beard and I really want to steer away from the hippie look. I get it all the time. Probably because I wear tank tops with cardigans and jeans or whatever. I’m fine with who I am and what I wear. But I’m also always looking to progress and always down to experiment with fashion. What are some good, every day wardrobes I should consider? I’d prefer a more classic, modern and preppy look. I’m becoming a dad.

Calvin Klein, Kenneth Cole, DKNY, all are kind of edgy and classic at the same time. Walk around the men’s department at Bloomigdale’s and check out what they have. Maybe plan on a trip to the mall without buying anything, and then a second one when you have had time to take in what is out there now, and what you might like to buy for yourself. Also try Banana Republic for a little more preppy as you mentioned. And, there is always Polo by Ralph Lauren.

I second a lot of Calvin Klein, Kenneth Cole and DKNY. Do you ever flip through Men’s Health magazine? Check it out at the grocery or book store, always some snappy looking clothes in there.

IMO…don’t fall into that trap. Just be yourself and feel good about it.

@Cruiser Ah, agreed, but I failed to mention I would like to be more approachable as I am currently looking for a job. I really feel that people think either I’m a hobo or some pretentious prick. I don’t want to stick out like a sore thumb, as I already have birthmark under my right eye that looks like a 2 week old bruise. So if there is anything I’m going to clean up, it’s my outfit, because the beard has got to stay.

Dockers for Men has a nice, clean look.

@dreamwolf: What kind of job are you looking for? The beard is not going to go over well when applying or interviewing, in most places. Is it something you can live with to shave and then grow once you’ve landed in a secure place?

dreamwolf's avatar

@Neizvestnaya Well definitely not fast food. I’m looking for a job that is in the creative department. Writing, design, selling creative proucts, music etc.

@dreamwolf: Will the selling be in house or will you be soliciting in other people’s companies?

dreamwolf's avatar

@Neizvestnaya No soliciting actually. Would prefer to work for a well established company.

In that case, all you have to do is get your foot in the door of a company who will value your work and not fuss when you decide to sprout a ruff.
