Matilda Rose, that looks like it's from Anthropologie's website. Can you tell me the name of the designer? The boutique I work at has top with a similar idea from Elie Tahari but not exact.

yes this thread seems dead. hopefully people will help me...

I'm a clueless male who doesn't know where to shop. I used to buy all my clothes from h&m, but not so much anymore. Urbn outfitters doesn't have anything I like lately.

I dont want designer stuff, I'm more into indie rock type of clothing. skinny jeans, blazers, and plaid shirts.

Can someone recommend me a store!!?!?! along queen street maybe. I've got money!Just dont know what to spend it on. I'm a typical male who doesn't know where to shop!?!?1

APC for jeans (I don't know if you consider that 'designer'.)
A pair goes for about $140 at TNT Blu.
Levi's makes a couple good cuts, specifically 510 and 514.

Band of Outsiders makes a good plaid shirt - Sydney's carries their line.
Check out Boomer for J Lindeberg blazers.

thanks for the recommendations. Also I need small sizes.
To give you an idea of how small. I wear xs and s american apparel clothing.

So its relatively hard to find nice fitting clothing.

I'm not quite sure the sizing inventory for any stores.

Surely they receive smaller sizes, but they usually go fast.
The s/s collections arrive within the next few weeks, so you should go shopping in that time (as in periodically dropping by.) That's the only way to ensure getting your size. Or be nice to an SA and maybe they'll give you a call when new stuff comes in.

is the a store that has a nice variety.. where I could buy everything.. since I really don't have any days off to allocate just for shopping. As you can see I'm in dire need of a new wardrobe.

I don't know of any stores that cater specifically to the indie rocker genre. Perhaps Urban Outfitters, but I wouldn't spend all my money there since there are better alternatives.

And I don't think it's really possible to buy an entire wardrobe in one day. You've only mentioned needing jeans, shirts and a blazer - you need more items than that to build up a wardrobe. What about sweaters, coats, accessories, shoes, any formal wear?

Building up a wardrobe (in my opinion, I don't know how others perceive it) is a continuing process. You add new pieces as time goes by.. you get inspiration for new looks.. and you add and add.. you cannot rush it; otherwise you'll end up with things that may not really work with your style.

If you want everything in one store, then Holts. You can spend the whole day there to shop, spa and even eat. It's a fantastic all day place.

holts is expensive. It's not really my style. Even though my sister does get 50% off

i think fashion_boi_01 gave some pretty solid advice but i'll just add my two cents...

geestring - you mentioned queen st. - have you been up to eglinton w? there's some really great stores you should check out.

due west, and nomad - on queen st. kind of obvious but worth a mention

also, try going further west on queen st. most people have a tendency to overlook anything west of spadina but there's some little shops worth checking out! klaxon howl for example is pretty great.

oh and uncle otis in yorkville...some of their jeans and t-shirts are yummy.

but i'm not a guy and i've only been in a these stores with friends of mine but i must say that whenever i'm in any of these places i'm constantly thinking: geez, this would look really great on someone and i wish i could wear this! hmm...although i do have a mens j lindeberg belt from tnt man (another great store!!) but had to put extra holes in it lol i couldn't resist it though. anywhoo now i'm rambling...

good luck! and let us know how things go
