My business/"luxus" wardrobe is : - Page 2

post #16 of 27
dug,    Je crois que tout le monde voudrait discuter vêtements, mais personne veut pour sembler comme il est bragging.  Il sera mieux demander comment autres portent styles certains, ne pas faire une liste de vos vêtements.

WHY not make exchange on the forum, for exemple my holland& Holland tie I do not like against an H&K shirt or a pair of braces.

Navystyles, thanks. Mon francais est un peu "oxidement". I think the other request was for a potential swap. In truth I have been contemplating making a system for putting one's wardrobe into his profile so everyone can check out the various collections of each other. Not as le bragging but just to get an idea of where each person is coming from, and to promote discussion e.g. "I see in your profile you have a Zegna blazer, how do you like it, etc." I doubt this poster intended a bragathon but rather a discussion and comparison of various members' different styles and wardrobes. As long as we are discussing and not bragging, I don't have a problem with it. List what you have if you want, but don't feel defensive or as if you have to list your wardrobe. God knows I wouldn't list half the stuff I have but it's not far off from the "favorite pieces in your wardrobe" thread.

j, It would seem my French is better than my grades indicate. Now I think I see what dug was going for with the mention of having an exchange. Point well taken about dug's intents. I hope I didn't come off as reprimanding. It's just a fine line between discussing one's wardrobe and seeming too proud. I'd like to see what others have to say about that idea for wardrobe entries on our profiles.

Dug MY curiousity is why you have such an excellent wardrobe but no job? Why not take your love of clothing and work in a clothing store. You might earn enough money to move out on your own. The blue suit with the orange strips may not be a classic but it could look sharp on a Sunny Sunday afternoon. My current girlfriend was amazed at the amount of clothing I owned. My answer was. I keep things for a long time, and I am in the business. "I don't pay retail." NOw if I can find someone to trade shoes for custom shirts I would really be set.

I have no job because of the unemployment in my job ( I worked on financial exchange) Swaping, (or why not selling?) garment on this forum is a nice idea I think

navy not too bad your french. I do not care what other would say in my life. If I can not show my wardrobe here imagine what people says at your job (even if you do not show your wardrobe they see it.). Orange strips not classic? I thing it is enough formal to be called classic. I plan to wear it in my furture job.. For an interview? Perhaps not.

Merci. Je me debrouille. Fair enough with the example about going to work.

The line is fine and -to me- almost invisible. Personally I wouldn't like to list my complete wardrobe, people might recognise me in the street   . That being said, the idea of adding wardrobe entries in our profile does appeal to me. Perhaps in the form of one's personal favourite's (e.g. favourite shirt, suit, shoes, tie, sport coat). MtB *EDIT* As to swapping garments, not for me, thank you. But why not expand the 'Buying & Selling' part of StyleForum to 'Buying, Selling & Swapping'?

dug, j'ai déjà eu le plaisir de lire une grande partie de tes messages (aussi sous ton pseudo "ernest"...), et, au vu des nombreux signes d'exclamations, je me demande quel âge tu as ? I ask dug how old he is

I believe dug said -- in another post -- that he is 30.

Interesting thread this is for sure. I suppose most of use would have similar items in our closets but prefer to not list the inventory. Never-the-less it was fascinating to view.

Il faut avoir un age pour utiliser ".............." ? He asked me how old I am because he thinks I use too many times "." He must suppose there is an age to use "." ... How old should one be to use "..." ?
