Where do you shop?

I recently graduated from college and I'm now in a job where I'm required to dress business casual everyday. I have a lot of Polos, but I've been buying more and more button downs because I think they're a little more professional.

So, I'm just wondering where everyone goes to buy work clothes. Feel free to throw out where you get your jeans, T's, what have you.

I've found myself shopping at J. Crew and Brooks Brothers (hell yeah, corporate discount) more and more. I will still hit department stores if they're having a sale, but I'm just wondering...what's your go to?

Kohl's most of the time. Good prices and they usually have some sort of sale going on.

Re: Where do you shop?

Being a guy of the larger persuasion, I usually shop JCPenney's Big & Tall. Since I work in a casual setting, I have about 20 polos right now that I can rotate between and a few pairs of jeans. For my every other week trip to our Corporate office, I have a few pairs of dress pants and some button downs (Stafford, JCPenney's house brand, makes a very nice, affordable dress shirt).

Jeans wise (and other clothes that I don't get at JCPenney), I stick with Old Navy, American Eagle and Dickies. I've even found some half way decent stuff at Walmart as well.

+1 awesome place for business casual. I don't Jos Bank for suits either. I use to buy really expensive suits but now I don't have to wear suits to work anymore.

Target is not bad either or TJ Maxx.

JcPenny is a good choice too. Their American Living collecting is by Polo and it is really nice stuff, IMO.

I'll have to agree with the Stafford dress shirts and they also have a nice solection of dress pants. If you catch their sales it hard to beat their quality and prices. I have found if you buy cheap you get cheap and end up spending more money in the long run replacing stuff. I'm not talking top dollar just good average quality.

Banana Republic mostly. Target for more casual wear

Sample sales are kind of a big deal out here in NYC. I can stand going to those maybe two or three times a year. But you can get good deals. I don't know if they have them elsewhere.

Yep, I wait for the Stafford stuff to be on sale and take advantage. When I was wearing a shirt and tie every day, it would take me a good 9-12 months of weekly wear before one of their dress shirts would have to be replaced. I usually wear Haggar or Van Heusen dress pants, but do have a pair of Stafford and they are nice.

Definitely agree with that. I'm all about Haggar for pants and I believe some Van Heusen as well.

Re: Where do you shop?

Eddie Bauer for the genes and casual attire, Nordstrom for business casual look and summer getup, and Men's Warehouse for the suits (no better place for practical and affordable custom fitted suits) .

Re: Where do you shop?

I like most department stores - Hechts, Nordstrom, Lord & Taylor all have nice stuff. Also, for stuff like shorts and t-shirts, great deals can be had at JC Penney, TJ Max, and Marshall's.
