    Post some clothing items you highly recommend

    These are worth full price, yet are usually on sale (currently 50% off). Super soft, very warm (I have sweaters less warm). Only potential issue is the fit is a weird one for JCrew. It's somewhere between their classic cut and their slim cut.

    Here: https://www.jcrew.com/p/mens_categor...e=marled-steel

    Also worth full price, but currently $25. Looks great, crazy warm (warmest sweater type garment I have ever experienced). Very slim fitting (I'd say on par with the usual BR slim fit)

    Here: https://bananarepublicfactory.gapfac...=Marled+fleece

    Looks great, fairly warm, but the fit is totally misrepresented on their site. That's a true slim fit.

    Thought I'd share the love.

    All the links work for me. I saw those at a j crew store and they looked better in person than online to me. I will come back later and post a few things too.

    Far too many to list, really.

    For MTM suiting, Alton Lane and Black Lapel are favorites.

    Something I consistently grab for in my closet is my S&M OCBDs. Since they offer a range of fits and sizes, I would recommend finding your perfect size, then size up one in the neck then slim down. Those ESF guys...well you can't take this advice but I'm sure it will likely work. The reason for this is that you can wash and dry them without worry of ruining you favorite shirt...my wife killed 2 shirts before I started sizing up. The result is an OCBD that breaks in and wears amazing. They feel a lot better than even my older ones that are washed cold and hang dried. I know it is rougher on the clothes but at this price...it is worth it.

    I would but these non-bundled, better at the bundled price, but perfect at bundled plus a discount for the rare times it happens but most of the time these sell out quicker and cannot be found for like 15-20% off.

    My suggestion is blue but other colors work. White is great but mine attract any hint of colored fuzz.

    My criteria here is if I would buy the exact same thing again.

    Hamilton Field Khaki. This is a great do it all watch and can be found for a very reasonable price. Its one of the few watches I own that I might buy again if something happened to it. Can be found on the second hand market for around $250 often.

    J Crew Kenton Pacer boot. Catch this guy on sale and its a darn steal. Love mine.

    Gap Hoodie. Ha, yup, a hoodie. These on sale are a great value. They get included in 40% codes usually.

    I wont go into the J Crew tech shorts again. Plenty of my opinion in some other threads on those lol.

    I love sweaters this time of the year and two of my favorite companies are John Henric and Grand Frank. I will admit I've gotten into turtlenecks in a big way over the past couple of years and these two companies make my all time favorites. The lower priced turtlenecks from John Henric are made from cotton and are extremely comfortable (they do not irritate my neck at all). A word of warning though that both of these companies are from Sweden are euro sized. As an example, a typical BR medium sweater is a bit big on me. The sweaters from either of these companies fits me like a dream. You may need to size up if you order from either company.

    Also, I totally love the footwear by Crown Northampton. Their stuff is pricey, but the quality of the materials and the fact that each pair of shoes is individually handmade makes it worth it. Also, they recently did a custom configuration for me (attached a different sole to a shoe than they had listed on their website). Great company, outstanding customer service.
