    Every time I go out looking to spend money on clothing I can never find anything that fits or that I am looking for.

    When I go clothes shopping, I get hold of a sales clerk, put on my "helpless clothes shopper" act, and make him/her take me around the dept and find what I am looking for. And if they dont have whatever I am shopping for, then I am outta there....and on to the next store. Repeat as necessary or until out of energy.

    I'm so glad we have a casual dress code at work. If I had to dress up in a suit, I'd probably go nuts shopping for clothes. I have no sense of "fashion".

    What!?
    Don't you guys enjoy trying on new clothing/ different styles to see if it looks good on you? The only reason I hate shopping is because I don't have the finances to afford anything I like.

    When I'm looking for nice suits that fit my ass, thighs, waist, chest, etc., I order from this site:

    http://www.mysuitshop.com/measurements.php

    This link takes you to the measurements page, where you enter your exact dimensions, and then find the suit style you're looking for. The clothes come shrink-wrapped in a few weeks fitting perfectly. Very reasonably priced.

    I've never been happy with store-bought suits, where they try to cram their jacket-to-pants sets down your throat (some rule says they must pair the waist size to the jacket chest size within 6-8 inches--my difference is 14 inches). This suit shop takes you at your word, giving you that perfect athletic cut.

    You can't look at it as a chore

    Shopping is fun ...
    Think of all the possibilities Something New
    Something stylish icon_cool.gif
    Don't always go for the same old tired crap
    Buy something that is classic
    That looks good on everybody

    If you're having a hard time with fit?
    That's where you have to do some thinking

    When buying clothes You Need to Fit the Largest part of you
    That means if you have a midsection that makes your shirt pull
    You need to go up a size
    Same thing goes for pants

    If you workout for your Body to look good out of clothes
    There is no reason why you don't need to use the right kind of clothes to make you look good all the rest of the time icon_cool.gif

    when you work out what works for you in style, colours and so on, you'll come to enjoy shopping for clothes

    I used to hate shopping, now I am popping in and out of the stores as I get a chance..

    When it comes to suits though, get one tailor made, it'll last longer, fit better, sit better, look better and as will have more adjustable seams.. but thank god I don't have to wear one anymore

    I work for a company that is business casual when not seeing customers, but business attire when with customers - which for me is most of the time. I absolutely hate shopping. For dress and business casual clothes I go to Brooks Brothers. For muscular guys - especially with large shoulders, thighs, arms - I do their twice a year made to measure sale. Suits that are custom made - nice...on sale they are approx $875+ but are of 2K quality. I know - a lot of money.Brookss also makes the best no iron dress shirt. 3 for $199, but the time and money saved by doing the cleaners for shirts, they pay for themselves. the staff is always friendly and accomodating. For shoes - nothing but Cole Haan Nike Air dress shoes. Look sharp, feel great.

    Well I find shopping really kind of fun... but I generally know what I want and what fits me.... its partially the thrill of getting it at some ridiculous percentage off. Nothing like getting a Ralph Lauren polo shirt for about $17.00.

    I agree with if I have to "look" to find something I like or have to try on to see about size is much less desireable to me. I don't like trying on jeans for example and the pricing of jeans is really pathetic. I'd rather go to the grocery store.

    I hate spending money on anything that doesn't appreciate in value. I had to buy some new clothes last weekend and took my boyfriend with me, which helped a lot (except for when I got tired and grumpy!)

    I hate how sizes vary so much from store to store and from designer to designer.

    Pity really - but it's the reality - there's no good ready-to-wear fashion for gym addicts..(
    And if you want to wear some, then have to watch after your shoulders size )

    I agree with GQ Jock 100% - having a good body and the way you dress the body makes a huge difference. My work attire sets me apart from the crowd. Timeless classics are key... even if you are a big / muscular guy. I buy shirts that fit me through the chest/back, shoulders/arms and take them to a tailor in Ft. Lauderdale to taper in the body so it's not like a dress. Shirts are redone and look better than when I bought them for about 20 bucks a shirt. Nordstrom will also alter shirts free of charge... but will not shorten sleeves or taper a sleev in to accomodate bigger arms - a tailor is the way to go for this.

    My work is business casual, I have no need for a suit and wouldn't buy one right now anyway. Just finding business casual and casual clothing is a hassle. My body is all weird right now, and my taste is clothes is fairly conservative. I don't want casual clothing that looking like I'm trying to be 18.
