    Anyone on here into clothes? What stores do you go to?
    I'm a big a fan of ZARA myself.

    OMG I LOVE FASHION


    Zara's a cool store, but I'm personally not really into European styled fashion.

    H&M


    Heritage 1981/Forever 21

    GAP-My favorite

    Hollister Co./ Ruehl No. 925

    basically alot of the one-stop style stores are great for everyday pieces.

    My favorites...
    Eskandar
    Issey Miyake
    Yohji Yamamoto
    Hermes
    Calvin Klein
    They all have their good seasons and off ones, but I tend to buy updated classics and nothing too outrageous.
    I really miss the store I Magnin they had a wonderful private label. The only one that has come close to it is Barney's!

    I know, SMH. Lol!

    However, H&M's design aesthetic is more universal as opposed to Zara who follows many of the European companies (French, Italian) design.

    H&M has a great deal of classic cuts and silhouettes that are as much American as they are European or Asian even.

    I don't see the problem :biggrin1: European style is awesome, and Zara is great in that, fancy, chique, casual, sporty, all of it :smile:. H&M is not my favorite tbh, a bit cheap and not that great quality...

    Fabulous taste, sir!

    I love a man with a strong sense of fashion and doesn't go for the okey-doke.

    I enjoy Banana Republic, Burberry, Brooks Brothers, Calvin Klein, Armani and for casual
    Abercrombie, J.Crew and Gap. I haven't checked out Zara yet. Will do.

    Interesting question comes up. My BF is Czech and I'm American. He says American clothes don't fit him so he prefers places like Zara and H&M. I can't get European clothes to fit me. American shirts for example come in neck AND sleeve sizes whereas European shirts are usually S M or L with a fixed sleeve length (usually too long for me). My BF thinks American jeans - like GAP, Banana Republic, American Eagle, A&F (brands that 20 somethings usually go for) ride higher than European jeans (he likes them riding lower on his hips). On the other side of the coin, he LOVES American underwear because of the fit and quality especially certain CK styles. Have any of you guys who have shopped in the US and Europe found this to be true?

    Clothes. I appreciate "Land's End" the most. I can order anything I desire and it is here in two or three days.

    They also have a virtual model so you can try the clothes on before you order them.

    A great way to see what goes with what.

    May not be the ultimate in trends, but comfortable and long wearing.

    Absolutely, thickjohnny! I wear mostly Banana Republic and J. Crew for casual clothes, but often have to have them tailored to fit more snugly. When in Europe I always shop at Zara, H&M, and Reiss because the cut of those clothes is just much more narrow than the American companies. (I know that H&M, Zara, and Reiss are also available in the US, but not in Phoenix.) :frown1:

    Yeah Kelley. Jeans in Europe seem to fit more snug than US jeans (and I thought they all came from the same factory). My Bf is in his 20s and I'm in my 50s so there in it self is one problem - body shape! He's tall and thin and I'm short and .... well, not thin. I'd say I have an average build. In anycase, I don't care for low riding jeans or pants and can't wear tailored shirts anymore. I bought a Zara suit once and it fit in the fitting room but after getting it home and trying to actually WEAR it... I couldn't get in the car!! Seriously! It was so tight around the crotch area that I couldn't move except standing. No sitting allowed. I see older guys here trying to wear Zara or other brand suits and it's laughable. Big bellies hanging out with the low riding pants almost out of sight below and their shirt tail always coming out! And don't get me started on European socks. I can't stand when leg shows and for some reason Euro socks just cover the ankle sometimes. I wear Gold Toe over the calf socks and love em. If the fashion police ever visited they would be handing out fashion mistake tickets left and right!

    So now I wait until I'm in the US for my suits, jeans and casual clothes and get my dress shirts from Lands End. I order them custom made. You give them all of your measurements and get a great fitting shirt. I like Levis for jeans and have found nice casual pants (khakis for example) and shorts at Target (yeah, surprised me too).
