I would like to know, are there any particular reasons why you buy your favorite styles?

My main selling points are style and proper fit. Many brands are making their slim fit lines their default line, which is a dealbreaker for me. Also, the styles of my favorite brand are very innovative, particularly since 2016.

Because they're my favorite styles?

Really, how much more justification is necessary (or possible)?

For me, it is about what I can find and afford. And also what I think looks good on me. There are few things that fit and/or look good on me. Shoes are especially hard. But so are dresses and skirts, which I haven’t worn in a decade or so.

My kids are always trying to steal my clothes. They tell me, "Dad, you just don't dress like some old guy." So I guess my style is relatively youthful and slim-cut. Though this "old guy" does put on a nice suit every once in a while.

Well, off the top of my head......
-- I like short sleeves, never wear long sleeves, because many long sleeves in childhood were scratchy, or hot. So even now decades later as an adult I still don't like long sleeves, and never wear them by first choice.

-- I like twin sets -- or should I say "mock" twin sets, as I was corrected here on CD recently -- because they give you the professional look of wearing a jacket, but the blouse and jacket are one piece. So there're one less layer, but you can get the look of two.

-- I like pull-on knit pants....well because, as far as pants go, you can't get more comfortable than that!
-- I like T-shirts and what I call 'business casual T-shirts' (basically T-shirt material or cut -- but with embellishments -- like designs near the neckline or a embroidered collar) -- because when it comes to tops/blouses they're as comfortable as you can get, but may still look "dressed up enough to wear to work.

-- For shoes, 99.9 percent of the time I wear only mules or clogs, because I hate having my foot enclosed in a shoe.

Cut, fit, and comfort. It needs to feel good and not highlight my flaws. Bonus points if the color trends happen to be colors that work for me.

1. They fit horizontally, and vertically
2. They are comfortable, and don't look dorky
3. I had a coupon and they were on sale.

Does the color or style catch my eye?
Does it fit me like it should?
Is it comfortable?
Is it practical? A designer ball gown might make me feel great, but I’d have no reason to buy it.
Does it make me feel good?
Is it a good value?

Long sleeve shirts-I like them because they are good for fall/winter/early spring and can easily be rolled up for later spring and summer.

Boot cut jeans-They are more flattering on me than the skinny jeans and they generally fit better.

Square toe shoes-Comfortable; I spend a lot of time walking around.

T-shirts-I love tees of all kinds; I have novelty ones, souvenir ones, and plain pocket ones. They are great for the weekend.

Doc Martens-Love how comfortable and well these fit.

Red, orange, black, and purple clothing because I love the colors. I also like to buy unusual jewelry and odd purses because they are unique. I don't want to look like everyone else and don't care what is/is not in fashion.
