    I like J Crew a lot for their shirts and jackets. They fit pretty well but their jeans, khakis and dress pants have an odd fit. Seems I'm always a size in between everything they have.
  6. Re: Grown man clothing (slacks, dress shirts, shoes and ties)

    It's an amazing deal when Express has their storewide 50% off sale. Can get a nice, well cut suit for $200 or so, depending on if you need shirts and ties to go along with it.
