    I haven't bought casual clothes in years, around the time I stopped giving a fuck.

    For business attire, I got a Macy's card, they send me a bunch of coupons, but I usually just roll there once a year during a big sale and buy a dozen shirts and a few pairs of pants for under $200 total (nice brands, not doo doo)

    I chose not to renew my Costco membership, nor have I ever thought of clothes shopping there, but one of my clients who is a millionaire buys all his business shirts there. Apparently Kirkland is manufactured by the same company as Brooks Brothers, just different labels.

    I guess he didn't get rich by writing a lot of checks.

    thrift stores for sure! if you have time and an eye for it..... they're gold mines. and INTERESTING! my friend's thrift game is out of control.. 70's Gucci safari suits and what not (on the crazier end of the scale)..
    designer, vintage polo shirts for under $10.
    He lives in the States.

    Besides 'fast fashion' might seem cheap but the strain on resources and the environment is atrocious...
    not only did it take immense amounts of fuels and oils and water to produce and ship, your cheap, white t-shirt will end up in landfill in 2 months.

    quality investments - even in the simplest clothes are worthwhile.

    I thought my thrift game was pretty decent, but 70's safari Gucci suits, DAMN! Not just there yet, i guess..

    i can never find anything cheap that actually fits me decently. mostly wear plain t's, cheapest and best fitting ones are the stafford brand from JC Penney's, for me anyway. thrift stores can definitely be gold mines though, and probably your best bet if you want quality for practically nothing.

    Uniqlo and H&M i'd suggest for cheap and basic clothing. H&M clothing seems to be terribly made and will rip and just wear out on your incredibly faster.

    ^^^ and you'll be surrounded by TPWF.

    My last office was above a H&M, we used to hang out on the balcony and laugh at the androgynous youth who frequented that establishment.
