My name is Chris and I'm an attorney. I stumbled on this site while looking to basically replace most of my wardrobe. My clothes are kind of pathetic when I'm not wearing a suit and was just looking for ideas in improving it.
I am a 53 years old with 2 grown daughters, married 28 years. Always cared about my appearance but braces, tuition and weddings dug fairly deep into my pocketbook. I am interested in slowly replacing my entire wardrobe. I do not want inferior quality, ill fit clothes any longer. I want to restock with quality garments that fit me to perfection. At this stage, I want to replace my shoe wardrobe with some higher end classic shoes, purchase some quality made, well fit shirts and have a few suits custom made. I would like to do it in a logical, progressive manner so I can match things along the way. I am really not even sure where to start so any and all suggestions are welcomed.
I finally decided to join after almost a year of consistently browsing, searching, and studying all the information on the forum. About a year ago I realized I was tired of the clothing rut I have been stuck in for over a decade... Poorly fitting clothing like polos in the summer with khaki/navy shorts, plaid button-ups with chinos or jeans in the winter, $100.00 shoes to wear every day until they are trashed and thrown away after about a year. I work in an extremely laid back environment, so button-ups and chinos are still my go to, but I have enjoyed learning about how to improve their quality and fit as well as diversifying into many different colors outside of the typical department store average joe stuff. Shoes have become my obsession though. I have a serious practical bone given my early career/young family status, so the best quality:money ratio has been what I have been after. I love watching nice things age and can't wait to see how the stuff I am now building into my wardrobe will look a decade from now!
Hello all! Been lurking for quite a while now and decided I needed to jump in here.
My name is Ryan Devens, 25, and I just recently moved to San Francisco from Nashville, TN to hop on board with local American-made retailer, Taylor Stitch.
Usually if you see me, I'm rocking some Billy Reid loafers, Imogene & Willie jeans, a Taylor Stitch button-down, a bow-tie that's too small, and my trusty Timex.
I believe that tweed is the only way to true enlightenment.
I've also perused the forum for quite some time, yet have not contributed.
I get the opportunity to dress on both sides the casual/formal spectrum regularly with my profession so I enjoy quality denim as much as I do a suit, but I am particularly keen on accessories (watches, shoes, etc).
