    Yes, shopping there gets the good stuff~. With some high top sneakers before, and brown leather boat shoes during, along with some comfy tan pants, clothes make the man make the gig. Look good, feel good, play good!

    A lot of those shirts are just available in one size only. Maybe the other sizes are sold out. I am amazed they have a 5XL size.

    They have an 800 number. I'll call them tomorrow after I decide which shirts I like. I guess it's true that certain shirts are only available in certain sizes. Some of their shirts I wouldn't be caught dead in, but there are some nice ones too and they're so inexpensive. Probably fall apart after two washings!

    Someone already nailed it. Dress a little better than your audience unless the look is a major part of your appeal (KISS, Gwar, Slipknot) and whatever you do, don’t wear Jorts, Sandals with Socks, Hawaiian shirts and an Indiana Jones hat unless you play in a blues cover band, take at least $60k worth of gear to the gig and post on TGP.

    I remember when I was a kid in the mid 2000s and was in a band where everyone was like 10-15 years older than me. The singer asked me if I wanted to borrow some of his clothes. He dressed like Uncle Jesse from a 1993 episode of Full House.

    If you're happy with the gigs you're getting you're probably doing something half way right.

    I prefer to wear an O'Neill wetsuit, it looks good and it helps me get to weight before wrestling matches.

    I've been having pretty good luck at Macy's for stage wear. They have an International Concepts collection which has some pretty cool stuff. [​IMG]

    I’m gonna get crucified for this here, but I get my 510s directly from Levi, I wear a shirt called a Patrick from that lularoe company all teh wimmenz like (cool trendy shirt) and a nice pair of boots. In winter I always layer it with either a denim button down shirt or jacket.

    Last time I played live with a band I was in on stage was 1994, last time on a stage was sitting in with a coverband my uncle hired for his wife's birthday party. Back then I wore what I wore usually, I'd set things out for the gig, but it was nothing I did not wear anyways. Jeans or Military shorts, t-shirt or a Soccer goalie shirt ( our roommate worked at Soccer Madness, we had a lot of soccer attire and my old Carolina Jump Boots or Israeli desert shoes. It fit the music, the ethos, the scene.

    Being older, I appreciate nicer things and an artist making an effort to present themseleves, I also think they should look a bit different from the audence, who came for a show, not just to hear you; they all got CD and MP3 players. So in the winter and indoor I've been thinking of wearing something based around a nice suit.

    Outside and in the summer, some of these shirts and waistcoats catch my eye.

    I keep reading about these "cool boots" whenever this topic comes up here. What might these "cool boots" look like???

    Las Vegas? Just ask the pimps where they get their clothes.

    For me, Thrift stores and western wear shops.

    Depends on the person. For you it may be an X toe cowboy boot, or a motorcycle boot. Those don’t work for me, I’m short, have skinny legs and a big ass. They look cool on others.

    For me, a vintage Florsheim or other flamenco style works best. I can do modern packer boots, too.

    Find a stylist/shopper in your area(not kidding), do one day with them, find out what works, apply it.
