What if Carhartt and 2(x)ist had a baby?

I need new clothes, and I would like, for once, clothes that look good. Significant bonus points if they signal modesty and I can do some physical work in them. [more inside]

Now I want a wardrobe theme too!

wearable waterproof materials

I always wear/use leather in rain but they always tell me it's wrong for the material. This is a bit naive but I'm wondering what high quality good looking materials work for coats and bags in rain? I don't mean plastic or nylon looking stuff (although if they're technically the best I'd like to know) but more stylish.. let's say upto $1k/coat

And the ugly duckling grew up to be just a really ugly duck.

Wait, grownups aren't supposed to wear torn jeans and ironic t-shirts to work?? Why can't I wear uggs/chucks with my "smart pant suit"? How do adults dress?? (long) [more inside]

Shirts like that?

[FindThatShirtFilter/DressMeFilter] I know I'm supposed to be eyeing off this seller's Etsy products, but I'm sorta more interested in the shirt her model's wearing! Anyone know where I can find it? Or recognise what brand it is so I can check out their other gear? And/or (while I'm at it!), different stuff entirely but with a similar feel? [more inside]
