Agree with brook brothers non iron comment above. Also like jcrew chinos when on sale if you don’t have to wear slacks. Allen Edmonds (or similar) shoes are worth the investment as well

For men, Lululemon ABC pants. Truly elite. Free tailoring as well.

Jack Erwin shoes. Brooks brother suit v good value. Their shirts are good price but not great. J-crew khaki pants. You could do a whole wardrobe (x5 outfits) of the above for 1.5k.

Enzo Custom for suits (fit great, look great, ~500/suit that made to fit and allows for some pretty cool customizations). Allen Edmonds for shoes. Not cheap, but can last many,many years w upkeep.

The secret with banana republic is you can call for a price adjustment (only one per item) so watch the sales but if you love something go ahead and buy it, then stalk it for 3 months and call when they have a 40-50% sale.
