shirts/sweaters/tops, etc: hot topic, salvation army, pac sun, thrift stores, garage sales. i'll buy a shirt basically anywhere, just as long as it looks neat.

pants, shorts: yeah, this is basically why i'm making this thread. i've been buying my pants from pac sun, but i'm sort of growing out of the whole baggy thing. but everything else is either too redneck looking, womanly, or expensive.

underwear: gap boxers are fun. and i get my socks from wal-mart :)

thrift stores/concerts/cheap retail outlets

I see no reason to pay more by buying them at the mall. I don't really care what others think of the way I dress as long as I like it I'll wear it.

Work clothes from gap. Everything else I pretty much get for my birthday/christmas because I don't care enough to go shopping for clothes. Occasionally I'll buy something at Old Navy or Lerner's I guess.

I usually avoid the Mall at all costs since I used to work there and it's novelty grew tiresome in high school. I get most of my t-shirts from shows and occasionally online if I think it worthy of going to that much trouble...or else if it's cheap. Everything else I buy where appropriate, except shoes and bracelets, neclaces and stuff like that I buy as I see it.

Nearly my entire wardrobe came from thrift stores and Target. And sometimes I'll wear an item that is my dad's or my brother's.

my most recent mass aquiration of garments came from my late grandfathers closet this past summer. Otherwise...I don't really buy clothes. All the band shirts I have come from either eBay or hot topic. that's about it though.

shirts/sweaters/tops, etc: shirts I usually get at Target or Longs. Both of the sweaters I have right now I got from the lost and found at the theater I work at.
pants, shorts: I guess I have some shorts from Target, but I bought both my Dockers pants and my Levi's jeans at Macy's.
underwear: Target. I go for bulk, although I do have some Spongebob silk boxers from somewhere or another. They were a gift.

I used to work at Old Navy and Target, and I can't seem to get away from them. It should be out of my brain by now that I no longer get a discount.

Hmm...I also like the Gap because they have xlongs on the website, the only jeans that are long enough for me. :(

This was a boring thread but I'll post for the hell of it :)

90% of the time I only get my pants from either Rave or Anchor Blue...simply for the fact that I have no hips and a big booty so all these low rise bullshits don't fit me right...well jeans mainly, but I wear a lot of dress pants for work.

As for the rest of my clothing, if I don't buy it at Rave or Anchor Blue I but them at Target, K-Mart, Marshalls, etc, I have bought the occasional Hot Topic shirt :o But for the most part, I shop at the cheap stores, and I look hard and find nice stuff...Although I haven't made it out to many thrift stores lately.

Shirts/sweaters/etc I get at thrift stores mostly. Um, I can't think of the last time I went to a department store & bought a shirt. They're all skanky & gross looking right now.

Pants.. I don't buy often. I only own 3 pairs. But they all came from Ross. I like buying pants from thrift stores that have neat back pockets but are too big for me & sewing them into skirts.

As for underwear, I almost always go to Victoria's Secret... though I have bought a couple pair at Hot Topic before, even though I despise that store. I just can't resist their little Muppets boy cut undies.

seriously - I travel the world and buy stuff I like.

I don't shop 'exclusively' at stores.

For example - today -

Shoes - Aquila, Melbourne
Pants - Mossimo, some shop probably Takapuna, Auckland.
Shirt - David Jones? - Melbourne
Socks - Nike - Auckland
Boxers - Melbourne.

thrift and vintage stores, almost exclusively. although when i've been home my mom insists on taking me to the gap :o

but hey. i like some of their pants.

i would buy new clothes (newly made) if they had the styles i like. i just generally like older designs.
