Where do College Guys buy their clothes from?

edited November 2009 in College Life

I'm new here to this forum xD and I was wondering, since I see so many college guys and girls around all the time everyday, a lot of guys now a days wear like collared shirts that are just buttoned down (plaid, striped, or checked) and a regular t-shirt either plain colored, or t-shirts with prints on them.

So where do people buy their clothes from? like in Canada.

I hope anyone can help me :)

    You could try your local department store. They are bound to have solids in every style you are looking for and they will be considerably cheaper than designer stores.

    However, if you want designer clothing then try places like American Apparel, Aeropostale, American Eagle, Hollister, A&F, Armani Exchange, Banana Republic, Guess, Express for Men, etc....the standard type of thing.

    Department Stores are the best. Everything is all in one building... Just go up and down the elevators. For suits however, as people said above it is Brooks Brothers fo sho.

    It also depends on your style. Like for me, I really don't like abercombie, Aeropostle or Hollister- they just seems really tacky.

    Banana Republic sales rack
  • SarutobiSarutobi Registered User Posts: 10 New Member
    Lol I've been to banana republic before and their clothes are MAJORLY expensive!! The ones on the sales racks are DEFINITELY cheaper :) Instead of having to pay $90 for just a dress shirt that will probably start to fade in a few years or shrink over time it's just not worth it :) that's why I usually look at the sales rack since some are what... $20-$30 and it's a better price :)

    Lol. I never heard of pacson before :S Where are they located?

    It's spelled Pac Sun. IDK if they have any up in Ontario.

    I get most of my clothes from Gap. They look great, fit great, and for the quality they aren't THAT expensive. If you want cheaper without looking bad, check out Old Navy. If you want great jeans, consider Levis or Lucky Brand (I'm generally against "premium" jeans, but I admit that quality jeans feel nice).

    As someone else said yes it does depend on your style. If you're more into the "bro" look, then you might wanna try American Eagle or Abercrombie or Hollister. I used to have a Hollister polo, and its collar was incredibly stiff... excellent for the "popped collar ******bag" look.

    (Before anyone yells at me saying "OMG I SHOP AT A&F AND IM NOT A BRO"... the stereotype didn't come out of thin air...)

    My criteria is based on budget. I buy jeans/underwear/socks from target and walmart. Usually wear free T-shirts, or buy one if I see one I really like.
    Unless you're at a $$$$ private school with a rich student body, nobody will care if you wear cheap clothes.
