Hi new member, from Hawaii living in New York. Been lurking here off and on for a few years. Nice to be here.
As for my tastes clothingwise, I'm a firm believer in style > fashion.
Hi, 30 year old from Toronto here. This forum has been excellent in helping unlearn some bad style norms and put me back to essentials of dress. I work for a bank downtown and I've put the knowlege to work - just bought 2 MTM Samuelsohns (grey and navy), plus two pair of AE shoes on a last week's trip from NYC (30% off sale), one brown pair whose monicker eludes me, and a pair of black park avenues. I've got a lot to learn in the denim/casual space and I'm looking for clothing that has value - versatile, long-lasting, and well fitting. My next bit of research will be in cufflinks and ties to accompany an insufficient roster of dress shirts that fit my uncommon dimensions: 15.5 neck, 37 sleeve.
I'm 25, been doing some very hardcore lurking here. Looking to overhaul my look in all departments from smart casual clothing to suiting.
It started with a virgin wool blazer I got on holiday in Canada. The staff there convinced me it looked good on me and was a perfect fit. I had actually gone in to buy my first sport coat with a view to spend 1/3 of the price! Have since worn the hell out of that blazer and love it. Time to expand on that and get some sport coats.
I'm caught somewhere between 36R and 38R/S so finding a shirtmaker that suits me is proving to be a nightmare. May have to go MTM after all. Wish I'd known about ToJ before I blew £400 on a Ted Baker leather jacket! Ah well, live and learn.
I'm frequenting Bicester village to get a feel for what I like and what I don't. I prefer to pay for quality over labels (may be a contradiction with the Ted Baker jacket). Absolutely in love with Pal Zileri there. Perhaps it'd be a cool day out to go there with fellow SFers :).
I may be one of very few women on this site! I love men's fashion and used own a company that specialized in custom tailored business suits. A few years later and I am back in the fashion space... so I am here to make new friends and perhaps get some feedback on my new company.. its travel inspired ensembles from around the world curated by your own local stylist. :)
If anyone is in a similar space or would like to connect please get in touch. :)

Thanks to the founders for this awesome forum.
Hi every one, I've been a long time lurking (3-4 yrs if my memory serves me correct) and finally I decided to join. I'm primarily interested in watches, shoes, high standards of living, architecture, and the finer things life has to offer. I am a student and rather mature for the ripe age of 22. I am local to DC, Raleigh, Chapel Hill, and Richmond.
I'm Russell from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Big fan of blogs like Putthison, Well-Spent.
I have a couple Ratio Clothing shirts and while most #menswear makes me laugh, I love the serious style here. I'm looking at picking up some MOP buttons here, check this link out.
