do you actually want to dress stereotypically or is this some kind of meme?

If you actually live in ny and aren't a fatass and don't want to stand out, get hilfiger or Ralph Lauren. If you do take this route, I can't stress enough the importance of making sure it's AUTHENTIC. Do not buy U.S. Polo Assn. or shit like that, especially in ny because you will get roasted until you cry.
If you're more towards the city, Uniqlo or similar brands are the way to go. Sleek and simplistic, good quality, reasonably priced clothing, you cant go wrong with it. Or if you're rich obviously just buy designer brands like Gucci and LV.

Also if you're a retard, consider shit tier brands like Abercrombie, hollister, etc.
Other stores that don't display THEIR OWN brand, (see above) are good, but usually overpriced, like pacsun, zumiez, etc.

I've also noticed the more upstate you go, the later the people adapt to the newer trends, if they even do at all. Fashion is hard to come by up here, city is a whole different ball game. If you don't pay attention in the city you will get left behind, but that only matters if you actually give a shit what random people think about you.

Qualifications: lived in NY my entire life, originally in the city and burroughs, and currently upstate.

Hope this clears everything up

As consumer journalist Rob Walker reports in his book Buying In, “the legend goes that the first ‘urban’ buyers of Timberland boots were New York drug dealers – guys who had to stand on the street all night and needed the best possible footwear to keep them warm and dry.”

Retro AJ's, or a cool colorway AF1's, grey/black/navy joggers, a hoodie(preferably with obnoxoius logo like Supreme or go for the full zip meme like bape) and a harrington/bomber jacket

If:fat cunt
Go for regular jeans and an Oliver trench/parka

You can try falling for conteporary meme and get a rugby shirt, some indigo jeans with flax af1s or workboots.
Anything that makes you look like a 90-00s drug-dealer will do.

literally every nyc girl right now:

flared cropped pants, neck handkerchief, gaudy oval sunglasses from 1999, slip on loafers/airforce ones and big hoop earrings


straight leg pants with scissor crop, tucked shirt, plain bold colors, etc. less definable than female trend

NYC has a population of 8 and a half million people and they really do come from all walks of life. The typical kind of clothing can vary wildly based on where you are from businessmen in suits to niggas in BAPE and even rednecks dressed the same they would be out in the sticks. As a previous post said, technical clothing is not out of place here because you're going to be doing a lot of walking in possibly cold and/or wet conditions during the winter. Really though I'd just let where I'm going/ what I'm going to do there dictate how I dress.

of course there are a lot of shitty looking people, but we must admit that NYC is the capital of fashion and art and music and avant garde culture. no matter how good you think ukraine and japan is, NYC is what everyone looks up to. what everyone tries to be, what everyone is excited to visit.

the bests of this board belongs to NYC scene. and it just makes me want to move out even more.

what is 'home' anyway ? how do people feel comfortable about being at 'home' ? i want to escape 'home'. i want to be always on the street, only at the appartment to sleep and then always go out doing something like idk skateboarding or just smoking weed on rooftops or fooling around the city etc etc how do you want to feel at 'home' ? 'home' is depressing.

which is how it's exciting. we could constantly feel like we're better than some people, AND trying hard is pretty fun, when people are actually impressed, the victory-like feelings is great.

well capital as in 'where something is so vibrant and celebrated'. i mean, britain, it's like gangsters sitting around in pubs watching football. it IS the birthplace of god tier musicians but new york is more playful and more new yorkers care about music and celebrate music. and of course fashion and modern art
