Qwear Dandy on a Budget Round-up

Qwear Dandy on a Budget Round-up

Greetings Dapps! One of our readers really liked Sonny’s post about dandy inspiration from Mr. Turk, but wanted to hear about more options for people on a budget:

"Can you do a budget roundup? Especially with cute bow ties. I’ve gotten the most amazing printed ones on Etsy for <$12 and they’re still great quality. I want to see more interesting bow ties (I own 3 Sailor Moon ones and a superhero one)!"

 
 Mr. Turk

Mr. Turk

 

As the holiday season deals start to taper off, there’s no better time for a roundup! Below I’ve compiled some resources and tips for fashionable queers on a budget. Enjoy!

My Favorite Places to Shop

Thetiebar.com

I can’t say enough good things about The Tie Bar. They offer a variety of ties (standard width, skinny, knits, and more) and bow ties (pre-tied and self tie diamond tip, wool, plaid, “conversational”, and slim ties, to name a few) all for just $15 each! I was skeptical of the quality of a $15 bow tie. However, after owning a couple I can say with confidence that the quality is excellent. In addition (in case you need more), they offer socks, suspenders, tie clips and bars, pocket squares, and cufflinks. They also ship internationally. (I disagree with Sonny about the tie bar)

 
 Trad Stripe - Navy/Red (Diamond Tip Bow Tie), $15 at  The Tie Bar

 Knit Stacked Stripe - Blues/Orange (Wool), $15 at  The Tie Bar

Belk

I know I’m always talking about Belk, but for the price and quality, their bow tie selection always amazes me. They’re a little pricier than The Tie Bar (about $19 per tie). Here's a great bow tie with flying pigs on it on sale for $14.99

ASOS

Although they offer every level of clothing, I’m most fond of ASOS’ selection of shoes. They offer durable, and fashionable, oxfords, wingtips, work boots, sandals, loafers, and athletic shoes for as low as $40. I recently got a pair of wingtip boots that I loveeeeee (pictured below). Plus plus plus they offer a student discount! International shipping is available.

Thrift stores

Lately designers are perfecting the “vintage” look. Loving the designs of Mr. Turk like we are? Try thrifting! Thrifting is an affordable way to find vintage and one-of-a-kind pieces. I’ve found some of my favorite pieces from thrift stores. When I’m thrifting, my main concern is quality (holes, sweat stains, missing buttons, etc.). If the quality checks out, the possibilities are endless. To get the Mr. Turk look, look for statement pieces. Statement pieces don’t have to be the most useful pieces in your closet. Use them to freshen up an outfit from time to time (Mr. Turk’s camo blazer is a fabulous example of a statement piece. You can’t wear it everyday, but when you do it’s a good day). Never seen it before, go for it! Don’t be afraid to take a fashion risk (besides, if it doesn’t work out, you won’t be out too much money). Below are some of my favorite thrift store finds. 

Outlet malls

Lots of big name brands (My favorite are Brooks Brothers, J. Crew, Tommy Hilfiger, and Cole Haan) have outlet/factory stores that offer extreme savings. If there isn’t a store near you, a couple that I know of allow you to shop their outlet store online (I only know of J. Crew and Tommy Hilfiger, but I’m sure there are others).

As a final tip, many companies offer up to 20% of your overall purchase when you sign up for their newsletter (Don’t want to get emails everyday? Make a junk email address - they are free after all.).

Happy shopping,

Blake
