Suggestions please! Have been instructed to buy clothes for 24yo nephew I don’t see very often. No clue as to brands, styles etc.

Thank you!

Mine probably aren't style icons DS 2 is into jeans ,no particular brand, T shirt likes superdry,check shirt again no particular brand , and rugby shirt Wales or Bristol but those are the club's he follows. DS1 t shirts he likes bad rhino but I'm not sure if they do smaller sizes and ice hockey shirts

I’d say if you hardly see him it’d be reasonable to either ask for explicit guidance or give him a voucher/cash if that’s not forthcoming.

By check shirt, you mean a shirt with a checked pattern? Like lumberjack style? <just checking!> That sounds doable.

Yes, explicit guidance would be great, wouldn’t it. But this is my brother, who doesn’t do explicit guidance. Or any kind of guidance really. And I’d rather not give cash.

I'm not sure mine are great examples but ds1 (22) likes jeans from Burton and t-shirts related to gaming or films although will wear primark, Tesco or matalan. Ds2 (20) likes outdoor sports brands i.e. Craghoppers etc. Both of them love the Woolovers jumper I got from the bargain thread.

Ooh, ooh, I like Woolovers! What is the jumper from the bargain thread, please?

Depends if he is into clothes or not, if so he will probably have particular (probably expensive) brands he will wear.
My 20 yo would not wear the Woolovers jumpers - I got them for his grandad and uncle. He tends to like certain designer brands and also brands such as Patagonia and North Face, high street wise Uniqlo. Uniqlo have their flannel shirts reduced to £14.90.
In all honestly i would never suggest anyone buy him clothes unless it was just nice socks.

Are you. Or safer with a sports brand like addidas or Nike? Then at least if they rent keen it's gym clothes.

Zara or Topman

If slim then Superdry plaid shirts or a jacket from there.

Can you look on your brothers Instagram or FB to look for photos of your DN?

Or even better look up your DN FB page etc to see what he wears?

I don't think you should do this! Send a message to your nephew asking him to send you a few links.
