If you could consider one brand of clothing to be "lucky", what brand would it be? By "lucky", I mean by always having what you want.

My lucky brand of clothing seems to be Izod. Pink is my signature color, and Izod always seems to have an extensive selection of pink shirts.

I've always found Old Navy clothes fit me better than most brands. I like their simple styling and cheap pricing as well so its win win.

By that criteria, my lucky brand is generally whatever is cheapest. My girlfriend is more into fashion, though, so I haven't really bought my own clothes in awhile now.....not that I'm complaining.

I would say that Aeropostale and Hollister. Each time I get in one of those stores, I buy something. I really like the fit.

Plain dark t-shirts and jeans or shorts. Let's just say fashion is #600 on my list of caring

Old Navy for me. Even though I live in Europe, almost 100% of my clothing is brought back from Old Navy in the US. For work (I'm a high school teacher) I wear graphic T-shirts with an unbuttoned shirt over them, long or short shirt sleeves according to the season, and mostly black khakis. So I have about 60+ T-shirts and 20 shirts to keep coming up with new combinations (the students would notice it if I came to school with the same clothes every other day) and the place where I find exactly what I want is Old Navy. Their prices are great and the quality is decent.

My lucky brand of clothing is Rodd & Gunn, they're usually out of my price range though. I had a favourite pair of socks from them that I unfortunately left behind once as I was hurried out of a room before a boyfriend arrived after I got a little too lucky. Damn irony.

My only "lucky brand" is Aeropostale, for the simple fact that I cannot find another brand that makes jeans that fit me. I'm not abnormally shaped or anything, but I've never been able to buy jeans that fit me comfortable anywhere but Aeropostale. I don't even buy anything else there...just the jeans.

For everything else I have a pretty diverse range of brands. Lately I've really been going for Frank & Oak though.

American Eagle jeans. The only ones I buy. I love the way they fit. No tears though. I get enough of those at work. For shirts it's anything I find funny. I have a ton of t-shirts. I guess it's the one thing I care about when it comes to "fashion."

You're not the only one. I have a good amount of clothing from them.

I also find Kenneth Cole to work well for me (mostly suits)

Levis 501 and 505 jeans.

For me is a sort of mix & match

I have tons of shirts from a local Spanish enterprise called Kukuxumusu, they make some hilarious T-shirts and I have quite a collection going on.

For shirts, I mostly buy them at H&M, Primark, or C&A, for pants... C&A since they stock my size, I like Docker´s but they are very expensive over here so I tend to stock on them when I go to the US (not been since 2009 tho) I also like Aeropostale for T-shirts and since they opened shops in Singapore, I plan on stocking up when I go there soon.

I was gonna say Izod too, but not for the pink. But they do make a pretty nice selection of comfortable, casual, inexpensive and well made clothes. I still have several pairs of their chino shorts that I bought 7-8 years ago that are still in good shape (fairly faded though).


I did have an Eddie Bauer knit, zippered pull-over that I found at an outlet store in Glenns Falls, NY for $15 back in 06 I think. Loved that thing, then I left it at my GF cousin's house when I was visiting by accident. I was never able to find one like it again in any Eddie Bauer retail store I went to.

I also have a blue fleece zippered pull-over from Old Navy that is 10 years old, still in great shape. Though I would always rotate through my pull-overs in the winter time -- btwn the Old Navy one, my now long lost Eddie Bauer one, and a few hoodies I have.

The Gap family (Old Navy, Gap, and Banana Republic) generally go over well with me. I basically exclusively wear collared shirts, and I've always found good ones (and good prices) there.

Polo styles shirts, not necessarily Polo the brand.
Levis jeans, the loose fit, it´s the only one that can pass through my thighs
For formal or semi formal, Hugo Boss. I love that brand.

Tommy Hilfiger would be my lucky brand. Each time I enter their shop for an item, I find what I want. 90% of my shirts are from them. 100% of my pullovers are from them. 50% of my polos are from them (the other 50% are Lacostes). Even some of my socks are from them. Sometimes, it happens that I'm fully dressed in Tommy Hilfiger, except for my pair of shoes.

Now that I think of it, this is a bit crazy...

The North Face. They opened up a store here a while ago and whenever I am there, I usually find something I like for a great price. Amazing value for money in opinion.

When I'm in the US I usually stop by American Eagle Outfitters.

H. Freeman & Sons (Not Hickey Freeman) has always been at the top of my list, with Loro Piana for fabrics.

Best part of the Freeman Suits & Sport Coats were their light coats, natural shoulders. and exceptional fit. They also have an excellent made-to-measure offering,

Corbin Ltd came in second, but I believe that they went under when the founder died/retired. The off-spring were not able to deliver.

But that was then and this is now so all I need is a blazer.

For shirts, the best I have were picked up in Fiji. Bula!

Not expensive, but a super cotton. Sadly they are covered in traditional Fiji designs so have limited use in public when the wife is with me.

Depends.

Suits: Armani and Hugo Boss.

Ties: Hermes, Ferragamo and Bvlgari.

Dress shirts: Charles Tyrwhitt. They are incredibly cheap, yet of high quality and with very nice designs. CT offers a variety of fits depending on body size. You can also have your initials embroidered on the cuff for a few extra bucks, and they deliver by mail.

Casual: Lacoste and Banana Republic mostly. J. Crew is not bad either; I like it. Buffalo Jeans are great and in terms of denim (jeans), they offer the best value for the money I think.

T-shirts: Tankfarm Clothing without a doubt!

Undies: CK.

Socks: Paul Smith.

Shoes: Brooks Brothers for formal, Geox for smart casual, Camper for weekends.



Next flights: MEX-GRU (AM 77E), GRU-GIG (JJ A320), SDU-CGH (G3 73H), GRU-MEX (JJ A332).
