I've actively been updating my wardrobe throughout my first year in NYC. I'm by no means a fashion icon, but I generally am one of the better-dressed ones out of my friends/colleagues. I have a clean/timeless style. The key is focusing on getting a fit that supports your body type, "investing" in staple pieces that won't go out of style and mixing/matching core staples in neutral colors. 80% of my wardrobe is black, navy, gray, or white. 10% is chino for pants/shorts. The other 10% is primarily light blue (spring/summer) or olive (fall/winter) as those two colors compliment my skin tone. My go-to brands by item are below.

Big fan of Club Monaco. Faherty and Marine Layer have nice casual clothes. I get all my dress shirts from State & Liberty. They have an athletic fit, don't wrinkle, and are machine washable. I get my work pants from Bonobos, but also get away with wearing Lululemon commission and ABC pants to the office. I have a lot of Peter Millar and Holderness & Bourne Polo shirts. Rhone has nice workout clothes and other casual clothes. Mavi, Paige, AG, and Rag & Bone make nice jeans, I recommend a dark wash and light wash. All my dress socks are Ralph Lauren. I have a navy blue and grey suit both from Suit Supply. My black cap toe oxfords are from Carmina, I have brown loafers from Beckett Simonon, and suede chelsea boots from Thursday Boots. I have a ton of different white Vineyard Vines t shirts. Cuts also makes nice t shirts and I have a nice bomber jacket from Cuts. I got my overcoat from Jos. A. Bank when they were about to go out of business, so it was super on sale. I also have a Longines Hydroconquest dive watch and a Nomos Ahoi. 

I'm going to second Bonobos for pants They're good if a bit pricy.  If you are a standard size, they're also better than Indochino/Suit Supply for suits.  I went through three rounds with Indochino, and basically ended up with off the shelf measurements, and fabric that's the same quality as a $200 suit for $400. 

Thyrwhitt is good for shirts IF you buy in their 3/$100 deal.

Once you know your size, my secret is to get Amazon's house brand "Buttoned Down" for about $15.  A cheap, clean, well pressed and well fitting shirt is going to go a million miles further than the best $5000 shirt that you wear endlessly until if falls apart on you.. 

The only difference between Asset Management and Investment Research is assets. I generally see somebody I know on TV on Bloomberg/CNBC etc. once or twice a week. This sounds cool, until I remind myself that I see somebody I know on ESPN five days a week.
