I love that you can keep track of the forum fatties' weight changes by monitoring their closet cleanings.

I love that people earning >$100k a year spend hours meticulously posing, measuring, photographing and selling discount meanswear for a $30 profit.

I love that in a community with ostensibly agreed-upon definitions of 'taste' and 'quality', both Kiton and Banana Republic find a market.

I love that my postman now knows me by name and engages me in awkward conversation during the time it takes to sign for my most recent delivery. Generally we discuss how much I love used pants and how much he appreciates that I keep him in a full-time job during a recession.

But mostly...

I love being on the forum at 4 am and asking myself why the hell I haven't turned the computer off yet when I notice someone just started a thread to sell a pair of C&J handgrades in my size for $200.


+1000!

I love B&S because whenever someone is selling something in which pocketsquareguy is interested, I get to see those beautiful, tanned breasts in his avatar.

I hate that B&S has soured me on brick and mortar shopping. Walking around and seeing what "real world" shoppers have to pay is too much to take at times!

I love that this whole site has given me a new outlook with regards to dressing, shopping and the beginings of some new found friends. It is nice to see that men can come from many walks of life, from many places on the globe and have something incommon besides sex, drink and food! I enjoy the education I get all the time from reading posts, I love the ability to hop on here and ask a quick qustion, knowing I will get an answer shortly, and that answer will be honest, and dependable. (not the question of "does this make my ass look big"?) This is a great place to build friends, not just a wardrobe. I wish all a grea 2010, and look forward to deeping/establishing friendships.

That's not quite the goal here...

Nice Tie.

Great responses so far guys, and a few clear contenders in the running... but I know theres some more wit and wisdom out there...

I hate it that after discovering this site the only thing I have paid full price is for pair of C & J Lowndes. I simply cant pay retail any more. Even the APC jeans were bought at a nice discount.

If paying 50% off bothers you, then you know you really have SF B&S down pat.

I love that a very senior member, well-known on the forum can receive a free tie from the generosity of another member, and not content to re-sell it for a mere profit must then raise the price again (once he realizes that his original price was low) to secure as much money as possible.

I wouldn't be so bothered if it was only 50% I was looking for. I cant even buy a 4600 USD SC for 650 now. I went to the Corneliani and Canali boutiques and everything was 50%. I was SO disappointed.

I love that I invariably encounter a higher level of intelligence and discussion here than on any other internet forum, but we're all such nerds about it. (tongue in cheek) I love actually thinking of usernames of people on forum as their real names in my head, and thinking of them as I might some people I know in real life. I love that I could post atrocious outfits in WAYWRN, get ripped apart from them, get mad at their jabs but keep posting and people actually acknowledge it and complement me on it (instead of holding my original inexperience against me) when I manage something decent from time to time. I love knowing about the little details and lesser known brands (I know this is much more of a selfish thing, but hey everyone's vulnerable to feeling superior from insider knowledge) knowing about TaT, Kent Wang, Uniqlo, the gradations of RL's labels, Thin Red Line, etc... and most of all for the knowledge developed over the months to know which is good value for. I love not looking like a slob anymore and wearing flipflops and jammies to class everyday. I love that my friends all made tons of fun of me when I first started frequenting SF (I'm a student), and I didn't give a damn and kept doing it, and now they ask me for Gilt invites. I love that I'm possibly more excited to visit India these days because I can get cheap bespoke there than because my family lives there. I love that when I go to the tailor in India and ask for working buttonholes and roped shoulders on a fully canvassed suit, the guy asks me if I sell suits for a living Edit: that is one nice tie to be giving away, BTW...
