@ehBeth,
That should be the standard reply to this poster, or this bot.

@johnmarson,
Probably the same place where you got the shorts, the bomber jacket, the short sleeve shirts, and the dress pants.

They have department stores in Phoenix and also men's clothing specialty shops. And then, there is always the internet.

@Butrflynet,
I could find him a short sleeve shirt, dress pants and an everyday jacket for less than $15 at a thrift store. Fancy labels too Smile

A Levi Commuter Jacket in Olive looks like something that will fit you perfectly in Phoenix .

It will be 96 degrees F there today. He'll be perfectly sweaty.

You might try ebay. I buy a great deal of brand new clothing and accessories on ebay and the bargains can be incredible.

I just searched on ebay for mens olive jacket and these turned up in your approximate price range--they are all brand new--just to give you an idea of what you can find. If you include your size in the search it will be more precise.

@firefly,
About a month ago I bought a leather bomber jacket for 3 BUCKS at a yard sale. Fits me poifectly. I thought they were nuts but this will be my field jacket this fall. Its a maroonish tan with a shearling lining(its not fake-they sell em in Orvis for 675 $) YOWZAH.
I hope it wasnt stolen . Its quite new and I didnt have the heart to ask whether the owner was gunned down in a drug deal or was it hot.

@farmerman,
I remember my father's of oh so long ago. Damn, that it is gone. I still have his helmet or bomber hat or whatever you call it.
My husband arrived in my life with, among other attributes, a decrepit bomber jacket, somewhat shreded. He was essentially poor, parents thrifty for good reasons, but to the extreme, and he went to school full scholarship, so didn't have a lot of clothes. White socks for christmas for both boys. His father's education stopped at 4th grade, but he was well self educated, reader of history. It was the mother who was wacky.

My ex died and went to heaven meeting me, who liked his playwriting and opinions and eyes. Though I was making ordinary money myself as a lab tech (previous free college educations in the UC system back then, although I worked 30 or more hours a week) and, all this being later, spending most of it on our gallery/theater/abode.

I describe all that to say we went to a friend of mine's wedding, and sat in the back. It wasn't me who was embarrassed.
Later in life, he became quite the sartorialist.

You can tell I'm not sorry for any of that.
