hello
im not really a normie fashion expert
mostly i buy clothes that i think have cool fabric or colors

my recommendation to start out would to be get some $200 jeans
some good brands are: momotaro, studio d’artisan, pure blue japan, samurai jeans, oni denim, etc
basically anything these guys cover
https://www.okayamadenim.com/
https://www.denimio.com/
both of these ship from japan so they don’t have scalper US prices like https://www.selfedge.com/

some examples of cool stuff:
okayama denim is doing pre-orders for these jeans with an interesting fabric+dye
OD_PBJ-Kakishibu-Super-Rough-Jeans-13_1024x1024.webp

these foxfibre jeans are rly cool. i have some and they are super comfortable. they’re undyed but the cotton is colored

if you’re new to fancy denim i’d suggest doing some research into the sizing. for example raw unsanforized jeans shrink a lot on the first wash. also don’t worry about not washing them, that’s just a meme. wash your jeans when they smell bad or get dirty

another place i’d recommend is Gustin. they have a unique business model where it’s kind of like crowdfunding an item so you buy it before they make it but it’s way cheaper
https://www.weargustin.com/store
the downside is you have to wait but they do have some stock available every once in a while https://www.weargustin.com/stock
i have some shirts and jackets and a briefcase from them are they are v good for the price

something ive been getting into recently is italian designer shit. its super expensive new but buying old stuff is cheap. i picked up some pink Isaia jeans and they’re so comfy and awesome. you can find them on some random sites, i usually sort price low->high and just look thru all of the stuff
https://topshelfapparel.com/collections/pants?sort_by=price-ascending
this is the white ver of the pink ones i have https://topshelfapparel.com/collections/pants/products/isaia-white-selvedge-denim-jeans

besides that i tend to buy shirts and stuff from japanese companies that make jeans and stuff. you can find them on okayama denim or denimio
generally i try to go for cotton 100%, or a natural fiber blend. linen looks kewl but it’s super wrinkly so you need an iron and im lazy

welp thats about all i can think of rn

expensive clothes tend to have a lot of little details that don’t really matter, but the fact that the brand cares enough to add them means they’re probably high quality
for example selvage on jeans is just a little accent when you cuff it, but in general selvage jeans are better than those without
i like shirts with chin straps b/c it fits nice and tight but it doesnt matter that much. but u know if its got one theyre trying hard

bird on skateboard

lol, i can definitely write a wall of text about frilly dresses but i thought this was about normie stuff
also wrt finding your style idk i dont really have one so its hard to say

Or maybe a better way to put it is, why do you dress the way you do Tiko? What makes you buy clothes and wear them?

i think it’s probably true that dressing “nicely” makes people nicer to you like, superficially. but it’s not necessarily a bad thing. imo it’s a good idea to make a good first impression. people can get to know you later

i mostly wear the stuff i do because i like how it looks. sorry that’s not really a helpful answer lolz
it’s also a bit of collection kind of habit too. i’ll grab weird fabrics just to have one or see what it’s like
it’s also fun to experiment with new kinds of pieces. like i’m trying to get into nice shoes rn so i bought some oxfords and some boots etc

maybe the trick is just knowing what fits you well/how stuff is supposed to fit and knowing what looks good on you

cause sometimes really “nice” expensive stuff fits u like trash and is a terrible option while something cheap might become a key article for u

I’m a fan of silhouettes of outfits first, comfort second, then aesthetic, and I generally don’t entertain cheap shitty options bc it’s harder to find those 3 things in Walmart brand although I admit there could be exceptions

this is also a good point
i like living in japan because more clothes here fit my twinkish figure

Things like this for N&F for the current season https://tateandyoko.com/collections/naked-famous-denim-fall-winter-2020/products/naked-famous-denim-weird-guy-tatami-denim or things like the persimmon dyed jeans in tiko’s first post

i grabbed the tatami jeans and jacket
it’s super weird fabric but it’s really cool
i’m curious how it’ll age but i have too much stuff to fade and never go outside via covid

I really wanted to get them but the 33 weird guys are sold out now since I was waiting on the seersucker corduroy jackets so rip I guess. Still gonna get the burgundy jacket though.

dang
i got the super guy cut and it’s ridiculously skinny
i can barely fit lolol
those jackets look sweet tho i also want to get one. can’t decide between blush and burgundy.

the pink would match my pink jeans

but idk if i can pull off pink on pink
pink plus burgundy would prob look better
hmmmm 🤔

the nice thing about jeans is they stretch lolz
i picked up some samurai jeans recently and fucked up and got 1 size to small but after wearing them around the house for a while they’re fine
but yeah sizing can be annoying for sure

bird on skateboard

nice. glhf

bird on skateboard

hardkore denim nerds go for the raw unwashed ones but i always buy one-wash if its available cuz the sizing is easier

bird on skateboard

they are ridiculously comfortable
italian magic

bird on skateboard

It’s kind of funny but I guess my “dressing better” has been just wearing what I usually do but higher quality versions of the same stuff

I got some shirts from this shop called Marine Layer, they’re pretty comfy

I didn’t know what LHT meant when it said vertical fades but I think I’m seeing it

6335E985-1E2B-44EC-9D1D-844DF7D6FDD4.jpeg

japanese denim nerds (levi’s replica nerds) go nuts for “vertical fades”
they think the pinnacle of jeans fades is like dad jeans tier
they’re also all like 50 years old
totally different from western taste it’s funny

bird on skateboard

daaaaaaaaamn

bird on skateboard

n&f dropped the corduroy jackets but ive been looking at so much other stuff now im not even sure if i want them anymore

bird on skateboard

Yeah dude. A couple years ago they had a standard brown suede one and it got down to like 4 hundos and I always got mad for not buying it but surely if that normal color one got that low this one will too

hope you can snatch it #praying4get
