I'm a young male looking to build a new wardrobe from scratch with about $1000. It's been years since I've gone out to buy new clothes for myself, so I'm looking for help to streamline the process. I'm drawn towards a wardrobe that's minimal but versatile, cost-effective, stylish, durable, and of high-quality. What are the absolute basics for a men's wardrobe? (Note: I'm currently a student and work in restaurants, so business-wear, although needed, can be kept at a modicum.) Moreover, I spend a lot of time outdoors and live in a hot climate with winters that rarely reach below 30 degrees F. Comfort and durability are my basic desires.
Where should I go to purchase these essentials?
Other factors to consider: I'm 6'2" and lanky. I weigh in around 170 lbs.
