5 Back To School Items To Buy This Weekend

The next few weeks will be about transition in my life. Moving in, whether it be back to school or into a new apartment. Although its cliche', a transition in life means that a new wardrobe update is always 1) a refreshing theme to go with the change in environment 2) a confidence booster 3) if you're like me, you'll find ANY excuse to spend a buck or two on new clothing. For the guys in fraternities, or who are apart of a college start-up, or a valedictorian, have different needs than a man moving in the corporate ladder.

With that being said, what does an 18-22 year old need in the coming weeks?

1. A blazer that goes with pretty much anything

Best Affordable Stores: Frank & Oak, Banana Republic, H&M, Combatant Gentleman

2. A pullover for the gym and Netflix nights

Best Affordable Brands: rue21, J.Crew

3. A corporate-level suit for networking events and career fairs (because you don't want to be the guy wearing a blazer and khakis in a room full of custom suits when a job is on the line)

Topman, H&M, Lewis & Harris (custom-made)

4. A 'fun' shirt for the weekends

Urban Outfitters, American Apparel, Pacsun
