Is there any piece of clothing or accessory you couldn’t do without?
This summer, I have a feeling it’s going to be between a pair of tan sanuks and a jean vest.
Do you have a style tip that works for you that you’d like to share with us?
Money is not an option, or so they say. Well, let’s be honest, for most consumers in this economy it is. But money does not have to be the defining factor in the creating or refining of your look. Take a thrifting trip to the Goodwill and sift through the piles of sometimes dusty, oddly categorized material. Run to the back of your favorite store and search through the clearance rack. Believe it or not, quality isn’t always costly.
@thegrunter While that may be true, not everyone wants to wear $10 jeans. Since there's a market for high end menswear in extended sizes, it's good to see designers creating options for those people who want it.
