Just wondering...

Being a somewhat large man, I'm between the department stores and the big & tall mens' stores. I need to seriously work on losing my gut. Until then, I'll say the plus-sized stores.

Just the other day, I had to buy a pair of shoes for the first time at Casual Male. I have purchased several pairs of pants and a shirt from them. I tried several places (including four different Kohl's-they're usually pretty good about keeping big shoes in stock), but nobody had anything that looked good to fit my size 13EEEE feet.

Being the wee goth I am I usually shop in the net or in those wee wee shops with medieval clothing etc.. I found a class A shop in Glasgow with Antiques and Victorian Style clothing I like alot, too.
And I like all those leather shops.. once in an attack of spending money I got them making a leather corsage for me smile.gif I love that thing

Also I shop alot of stuff in the side-stands of Metal Festivals...
I got no real shopping routine tho... when I'm out and I see something I like and I have enough money with me I just buy it =)

I am a full figured gal, so I tend to shop at Lane Bryant, but I have been dissatisfied with them lately. I have a hard time finding clothes that fit my personaity, so I am trying to learn how to sew my own. I have gone form the total grunge look to the goth look (which I still hold onto somewhat) to the country look to the gauzy indian dresses. I like so much stuff that I can't make up my mind. I will say one thing, I have never been condsidered "hip". dry.gif

I HATE SHOPPING!!!!! When we are set up at a festival and I start getting a wee bit ripe, I reach into the bins and pull out another t-shirt. Therefore, I have a lot of t-shirts but they are nearly all the same. Pants all come from the factory outlets. I know what I want and head in and out in record time. Could say that I'm a typical male!

I look at what others are wearing on the street to determine what I truly like. If I see something that I like, I'll politely walk-up to the person on the street, inquire as to where they got the article, and then kill them and take their clothes.

Okay... I really shop wherever. Here in Philly, there are a TON of outlets for the "big name" stores, with pricing like the discounts. Since there are so many knitting mills around, we get clothes pretty cheap. Therefore, I get mine all over the place.

I don't know what category you want to put the manufacturers in... but that's my "final answer, Regis".

Typical male thing, I agree! I love shopping, especially clothes, shoes handbags, jewelry, make-up and those little silky unmentionables! wink.gif I do like Levi jeans.

I'm no slave to twenty-first century fashion. My work clothes are purchased mail-order from Galls in Kentucky (they specialize in law-enforcement / security / EMS stuff). During summer T-shirts and jeans are good enough. During winter I gravitate toward Pendleton's shirts and pants, 'cause I love to play in the snow, but don't necessarily like to get cold in the process.

In my hobby as a living historian, I am a bit slavish toward eighteenth century fashion. I'm a passable tailor and make nearly all my own historical stuff.

Here's a pic:

Alright Swanny! Looking quite the fashion statement. Did you say that was your High School reunion?

Well, given my crappy job that I do, I don't dare wear anything nice or new - they will just be ruined anyways. So I buy all of my stuff at yard sales and thrift stores. Where other people wear "Tommy" and "Gucci" labels, mine all say Goodwill! biggrin.gif

You know you are a re-enactor however, when your historical clothing closet has more clothes than your regular closet, and they are way nicer and of much higher quality than your every day stuff! I do medieval events (SCA not Renfairre), and have accumulated some very pretty gowns, corsets, and jewelry...

I tend to do my clothes shopping at Meijer, Walmart, etc...That way I don't have to make a separate trip for Mt.Dew, Fritos, etc. For me, shopping for clothes is like shopping for anything else. I usually go for jeans and t-shirts. I do have a couple of suits for job interviews, and some nicer "business" clothes, but I try to wear jeans whenever possible.

Lane Bryant is getting too expensive for the quality, so I have ended up at Wal-Mart, Meijer and Target here lately myself. The problem is most of the stuff is either "too old" or "too young" there is no in between. I have been gettinng some Lands End catalogues here lately and I like what I see, so I may be getting a good chunk of my clothes from thee once the ones I have wear out. I never realize how much I have until it's time to do laundry. biggrin.gif I am going to have to adopt the "quality over quantity" additude.

I'm like Swanny and Free2B... My closet is, for the majority, living in the 19th century. U.S. Civil War reenactor here. (BTW, looking snazzy there Swanny!) There are times I wish I was a guy - it's easier to explain wool pants and button-on braces in the wintertime, than it is to explain the corset and the stripey flannel petticoat!

A couple of years ago I gained some weight, the result of being cooped up for two months following knee surgery. Nothing to do but eat, work at the computer and no vigorous exercise will tend to do that. rolleyes.gif Anyway, I'm *still* trying to lose the weight. Meantime, I'm at an odd size. Borderline "regular" and "plus" size. To make matters worse, the Gap stopped making the jeans I used to wear. I bought the same style, the No. 9s for close to 10 years. I have always hated shopping for jeans, so when I finally found a size/style that worked, I would always buy that. Recently my denim purgatory was lifted, and I managed to find a good fit. Ironically I got them at LLBean; I almost never shop catalogue (unless it's for computer stuff).

Since I'm self-employed (computer programmer) and do most of my work from my home office, I tend to dress like a slob most days. Jeans and T-shirts are my usual attire, except when I go to a client's site.
