I'm a guy in his 20's. I want a brand of clothes that represents both maturity and youth. Basically, I don't want to look like a kid or an older dad, but someone who can be a gentleman and can hang out and be casual at the same time.
Here's the bottom line. I don't want a brand name to be just some kind of status of wealth. But I'm looking for some designer clothing companies that make quality products.
Abercrombie is more for kids than adults. Banana Republic are a bit too preppy. Nike, Adidas and the like are good for training clothes, but not so much for a wardrobe. YSL, Louie Vuitton and Gucci are too expensive for most of us. Ralph Lauren and Lacoste aren't bad, but there has to be better options.
So far I'm thinking about Perry Ellis.
Your thoughts, recommendations?

You should realize that a lot of the brands you are considering don't actually make their own clothes. They are designers. They often have multiple lines. Different lines are made by different companies. Some are junk. Some are quite well made. The best stuff is usually overpriced compared to actual clothes made by that maker, but designer label stuff also tends to go on deeper sale, at which point it can be a bargain.
I doubt you can or should find 'a brand' that you get all your clothes from.
If you could describe what kind of clothing you're looking for, you could get better suggestions.
You do also have to consider fit. Different companies do cut their stuff differently. Fit is paramount, if you find someone whose pants fit you well, stick with them.0
