I don’t have any nice clothes. I’m 26m fish in nyc and I wear t shirts with lulu pants. Any ideas on where to start? I don’t like button up shirts since they make me feel dorky

If your button up shirts make you feel dorky, you need either better role models or better button ups


This. Well fitted button ups with nice patterns and designs should not be making you look dorky


Dorky? You’re a consultant. Wear a shirt lol


You should probably try more button ups and maybe you’ll find one you like, but a good jacket over a tee can really make a good outfit. Personally fond of field jackets for starters, but overshirts are popular right now and very easy to wear, and bombers look good on some guys. And yes, check out crew neck sweaters and henleys and real pants. Into Buck Mason and Marine Layer rn but ymmv.


Big fan of buck mason

I really love blouses or a nice quality fitted T-shirt. If you pair them with nice slacks they can dress up very nicely! I found H&M had fairly affordable quality pieces.


Come on friend. You’re 26, not 13. Look online or Pinterest for some ideas but it’s not that hard.


I like a good henley and tshirts can be nice depending on the material/cut. Get a few cashmere sweaters.


Be dorky

Maybe try polos if you're not a fan of button ups. You could pair your tee-shirts with a nice cardigan/blazer or switch to sweaters when it gets cooler.
As for pants get a few pairs of slacks in neutral tones and/or navy.
