Where do you all live?

post #1 of 47
Thread Starter 
Let me say first off I love this forum. It's taking on the atmosphere of a favorite bar you stop in after work and have a belt with the guys. I enjoy chatting with you all and was wondering where everyone lives or is posting from. Myself, born, reared and educated in Indiana, but for the past 13 years a resident of San Juan, Puerto Rico. Anyone else?

Lived in and around Charlotte, NC and it's surrounding areas for all of my 17 years.

I live in Cleveland, Ohio. I've lived here all my life. The down side of Cleveland is that there is no place to buy clothes anywhere near here (except one Hermes boutique that is out of my price range most of the time)- however that can also be an upside because people always ask we where I get my clothes. I dress a lot different than most people in Cleveland (Home of Drew Carrey and The Browns)

Renwick: What is it with Drew Carey's suits? I find them incredibly ugly and boxy. I'm sure you're fond of his ties though, VBG, as they are on the skinny side.

I live in New York on the Upper West side near Lincoln Center. Went to school in Philadelphia and grew up in Virginia. I'm 25.

I've lived near and worked in Toronto, Canada all my life. The shopping is pretty good around here, maybe not quite as hip as Montreal or Vancouver, but I can usually find any label I'm looking for locally.

Close...I go to school at Lincoln Center, and went to school in Philly. Grew up in Kansas (?.) though.

Yes, it's a good forum and lots of interesting people hang around here. I'm born, bred and live in Reykjavik, Iceland and, although it's possible to do shopping here it's of course limited. Therefore, I do a lot of my shopping in NY, Florida, Copenhagen and London whenever I get an excuse to travel. Thankfully I attend a lot of tradeshows and conventions overseas so I can combine that with some powershopping. BH

I'm in Montreal right now, it's not a bad place but for shopping it is very limited. I don't find it to be very hip, there are only so many places one can go for decent clothing: holts, harry rosen, some boutiques in les cours and on peel that's basically it.

Until either probably about June, I live in the Virginia Highlands neighbourhood of Atlanta, USA. It's one of the few bright spots in this bleak suburbopolis. However, I also maintain a flat in Vienna, Austria for my fiance, where I lived until recently. (She's a med student there.) I was born in Lagos, Nigeria, but my father was a diplomat so I moved around a bit as a kid and spent some time on every continent but Australia. (I went to a public school and boarded there, but usually went to wherever Abu was for holidays.) Also, I've spend years in Lahore, Pakistan; Durham, NC; Berlin, Germany; and Vienna for educational reasons. EDIT: It doesn't look like it, but "there" in the above graf means Lagos, not Australia. Peace, JG

Yeah, I think it's a Cleveland thing to wear sack suits. Even the most well dressed people I know around here where boxy suits too often. Personally I like suit jackets like so tight I can't breath- like Dior or Dolce and Gabbana cut them Of course most people in Cleveland are also big fans of eating large amounts of food, thus leading them to need bigger suits- which I think makes you need a slimming cut even more. But yeah he does have some skinny ties to draw attention away from the suits.

I was born in Los Angeles, I've spent most of my time on the Connecticut shoreline, and I'm currently in the process of getting through my final year of college in Ithaca, NY (Cornell).

Well, I was born in South Dakota, then I moved to Rammstein, Germany, then to the Asores Islands (where my sister was birthed), Portugal, then moved to Barcelona, Spain, then moved to the Dallas/Fort Worth area of Texas, then moved to the city in which I currently reside, Charlotte, North Carolina. Will, maybe we can meet up sometime, and hit TR&C or Paul Simon...just a thought.

I'll jump in on this one.  Born and raised in the suburbs just north of Buffalo, NY.  Moved out to Rochester (an even smaller city due east on Lake Ontario) three years ago for college, and probably sticking around the area for awhile.  Shopping couldn't be worse, but hey, at least the people are great.

As I have mentioned before, I am an NYU student. I live in SoHo, which is great because I have the worlds best shopping just 2 blocks away. I'm going to study in Florence, Italy next semester, I leave mid January and come back in May.
