I perused with interest the "Welcome Back" thread. It was interesting to me how many posters expressed a strong preference for the Style Forum over the Ask Andy Forum. When I started lurking on these fora somewhat over a year ago, there seemed to be a consensus that the Style Forum was for a younger, more fashion-forward set while the Andy Forum was for a more mature, high-end buyer group. In the past year, however, I note that there is a large crossover. Many of the regulars here are also regulars on the Andy Forum. Honestly, I don't see a great deal of difference these days. Personally, I am much more interested in the topic and the ensuing thread than the particular forum it appears on. I will agree that the American Trad thing has been overdone. I'm really not that into sack suits, Alden cordovans, button downs with a suit and whale pants, anyway. Briefly, I enjoy both fora, don't have a strong allegiance to one over the other and like the fact that when one is down, we usually can divert ourselves with the other. How do the rest of you feel?
