Clothes Shopping For Men
So about, uh, shopping...By The Fashion Editors Photo credit:
A show of hands, gentlemen: Who here likes to shop? Could be for a car or a computer or a camera: Who likes to walk into a store, test out all the options, and head home with something new? We see a lot of nodding heads. We do, too. Now, who likes to shop for clothes? Come on, raise your hands high so we can see them. Uh, higher? Should we repeat the question? Huh. Not quite as much enthusiasm about shopping for clothes, but given the way some of us do it, that's not surprising. We'll walk into stores without knowing what we're looking for; we'll roam the racks and stacks, uninformed, uninspired, and conflicted, and we'll end up leaving with clothes we don't like or that don't fit. This is no way to shop. Hell, this is no way to live.
At its best, shopping for clothes is about exploring all our options so we can make smarter decisions. It's about learning everything there is to know about an article of clothing how it fits our body, how it feels against our skin, how it's made so we won't have any regrets. It's about discovering new things that we didn't even know we wanted. But isn't that what the Internet is for, you ask? Well, kind of. As wonderful as the Internet is for discovering and buying new things golf balls, DVDs, sweater-blankets it's no place to spend serious money on nice clothes. For that, you'll have to visit a store, ask a few questions, and try a few things on you'll have to shop. And once you have a better sense of how, when, and where to do it, it might not be all that different from shopping for cars or computers or cameras. You might just have a little fun.

I'm looking for a men's wide wale corduroy2007-10-04 19:09:56 by -
Blazer for my boyfriends birthday. Can you suggest any places online I could check out? I've looked at BR, Macy's, Bluefly. I don't do a whole lot of clothes shopping for men and I'm flying blind here.
I think wide wale is the term but I'm not certain. I want really thick cords. Hoping to not go too expensive (under $200 if possible).
