How many of you guys would consider yourself to be T shirt and jeans kinda guys.
I’m not a fashionable guy by any stretch, generally it’s sedated, brandless t shirts and vertx pants, very functional and easy to move around in.
I kinda subscribe to the Greyman idea of dressing and generally don’t like looking like a billboard for brand anyway.

After a certain age your 'six-pack' tends to stay in 'the esky' - so t-shirts may not be the most flattering - you are a long way off that but are warned!

General look?

Work - suit, M J Bale my current go to. I have six and rotate around
Out and about - smart casual, 'chinos' (R B Sellers) or 'moleskins' / dress jeans with R M W boots and usually a long sleeve shirt. Often with a jacket (wearing a light linen jacket today in Sydney.
At home (or to hardware store) - daggy work/ casual clothes, short. worn jeans, t-shirts, whatever is at hand - must be capable of getting dirty

I don't have much preferences... T-shirts, and pants that I may have. Currently I would say > 80% of the clothes I use I got from discards or from people actually leaving Tassie (it is great that two of my best mates here were really fancy, so I now have fancy clothing around). I reckon I have bougth a couple of T-shirts in the last 3 years and a pair of shoes, excluding underwear, of course. Still, I am normally well dressed
I have not wear a suit since the last wedding i attend (1997), but I like them. I would buy a couple once I get more permanently settled. For now, I will need a bigger suitcase if I leave Oz, for not having to leave any of shaving provisions, so I cannot buy stuff as If Lived permanently here xD

Anything made with wicking material.
Today's look is a black work polo with Ripcurl Mirage hybrid boardshorts, and Tevas that should have been thrown away already.

Fashionista is something I had to look up. I'm just happy if something fits.
Work: Heavy Drill cotton Hi Vis finished out with some steel cap boots and either a hard hat with brim or a sun safe hat. Great in a high humidity climate but beats getting burnt.
Casual: Jeans , chino shorts, polo or tee shirt will add a button down long sleeve when the occasion calls for it. Sneakers or Rhino industries shoes or boots.
At Home: Shorts that the wife will not let me go down the road in. Topped off with the first shirt out of the draw. Thongs ( surfer Joes or Rockies) or sneakers (broke pair of Asics).
Formal: Navy Blue ( Almost black) single breasted. Bought from a big and tall. I am ape positive. Several long sleeve shirts and ties to match. Footwear is an aging pair of julius marlow boots.
Fishing: Op shop pants and a couple of cheap long sleeve fishing shirts. Not allowed to wash these in the in the washing machine.

Summers:
T-shirt and shorts
I feel the heat a lot so I never wear long pants or long sleeve shirts no matter what!

Winters:
Jeans, jogger pants or track pants
T-shirt
Light sweater
Jacket (either wool lined or synthetic down puffer jacket).

If going out casually, I'll wear jeans, long sleeve casual shirt jacket.

Gym:
Breathable basketball Shorts/t-shirt
A light jacket in winters.

Office:
I work from home now but when I was office-going, I'd wear black pants, black leather shoes, rotate through 18 shirts and add in a long/heavy coat for winters.

I always hated going to the office so I was also never much interested in "office fashion", I kept it simple and only purchased more when I needed to replace something.

I am not much into brands, never have been. That said, if I'm getting a good deal, then it's not try I'll avoid branded clothes because a good deal is a good deal. The overall look/fit and feel is much more important to me.
