Many people looking to get a basic wardrobe won't want to spend top dollar right away.

We could provide a "budget" suggested item for each thing.

From nbes:

For Chinos:

  • Bonobos Slim Fit Chinos (my absolute favorite)
  • J. Crew Broken In Chinos

For Shorts:

  • Uniqlo Chino Shorts

For Oxford Button Downs:

  • Uniqlo + JCP

For Patterned Button Ups:

  • Bonobos
  • GAP
  • Uniqlo

For Sweaters:

  • J. Crew or J. Crew Factory
  • GAP
  • Old Navy

For Sneakers:

  • Vans

For Leather Shoes:

  • LL Bean Camp Mocs

For Blazer and Suit:

  • Factory Thompson from J. Crew Factory (best value/fit and it comes in charcoal, > grey, and navy. Even after tailoring, it's still a great inexpensive alternative.)

For Dress Shoes:

  • Alden's are a good alternative as well!
  • Maybe Cole Haan?

From Interrobang_:

Here are some dress shoes:

Hattip to dappered.com, which is where I've heard about most of these.

This might be better as a sister site to this one. I like that the focus on the current site is on higher quality pieces.
