Clothe me! I am pretty much in need of a new warddrobe. [More:]

After years of getting nothing but t-shirts as gifts from friends, I requested a moratorium. But now I'm pretty well out of t-shirts again. So I'll need some of those. My old fedora got crushed, and my ball-cap hasn't been washed in a decade, so I might like a new hat. Plus whatever else you can think of. Recommend the awesome and obscure to me!

I know a bunch of sites, but would appreciate links to specific articles of clothing. Use what you know about me, and surprise me!
A fedora? AHA!

Ha ha ha, that couldn't be me for the simple reason that I wouldn't post anonymously. There's no shame in my game.

I know this isn't a link to anything specific, but I get lots of great ideas from The Sartorialist. I just love it. I wonder how many people get dressed up and walk up and down the streets of the meatpacking district in hopes that they'll be spotted?

I love this especially (you may have to scroll down a little): Last year the blog featured a snazzy continental-looking guy in nice threads (kind of dandified Miami Vice, actually), and this year J.Crew totally ganked the entire look for their spring 2008 catalog.

Way too stylish and trendsetting for me. I'm a t-shirt and jeans diehard. I'm even wearing a flannel overshirt today!

I know someone who would be very proud of you.... ;)

Ooh, watches! Someone hook me up with a neat but not too pricey geek watch. (Yes, I saw the steampunk ones on MeFi). Show me the watch of the future!

aren't we ALL proud of Eideteker?

I can even dress myself!

At least until the wearable iPhone comes out, the watch of the future is no watch at all.

have you checked out great, weird watches, and not too expensive...

Levi's 501s

Since you are a casual kind of guy, why not some short-sleeve cotton shirts to wear with your jeans. Like this.

I like high V-neck T-shirts on guys, as well as crewnecks.

This is a cool, casual jacket to wear over T-shirts. It's a little pricey, but it's a reference.

This could all suck in your eyes.

Okay, I'm going to go with the obscure:

Have you ever tried wearing a Sherwani for formal occasions?

Why not try a white Kurta on jeans for informal ones (especially in the summer).

And for shoes--might I suggest these. They're great, if you can find a pair that are comfortable on your feet, but if they're not, they can hurt like hell.

Lori, my Imp of the Perverse likes this watch. I have to wonder if I'd have problems taking it on a plane, though. I didn't have any trouble with my Tool Belt, so maybe it wouldn't be an issue.

hadjiboy, I love Indian fashion, but with a large Indian-American population around here, I don't know if I could get away with it without seeming offensive.

I really like Lori's suggestions and from what I've seen of you in photos, I think they'd look great on you.
