Hello. I'm building a wardrobe from scratch, and slowly.
I'm a humble gentleman, 5' 7" & 38S generally in a suit. I hope to reap the benefits of those more knowledgeable than myself.
Hey, just wanted to pop in here for my first post.
I joined this forum because I'm trying to create a more "mature" wardrobe. I'm 22 years old, Canadian but currently in France for graduate studies. I wear mostly oxfords/polos from J.Crew and RL with slim tapered APC jeans, and am currently trying to improve my shoe game. I've browsed this website occasionally over the years, and it's because of this website that I bought a pair of Allen Edmonds 5 years ago in high school.
Now looking for a pair of monks and some oxfords, and think I'm going to start with some from Meermina! I've been reading that thread all night, and they seem very promising.
I am a 25 year old women, with a strong interest and passion for men's wear. You could say it is in my blood my family had a mens department store in Denver for 80 years it closed the year I was born. I just moved to the Detroit area after being in Chicago for 2 years. I desperately miss big city life. I currently work at Nordstrom. when I lived in Chicago I worked at an independent shoe store in wicker park. I sort of fell into shoes I have a background in politics my bachelors is in Political Science, I was all set up to work in politics after college only to have a change of heart. I aspire to start my own business
DMB here. I'm a retired Army officer and currently a detective sergeant with a medium size agency in the south. I blow money on nice watches, shoes/boots, and cigars. Due to the hazards of the job, I don't dress for Wallstreet but still like to wear something in the "nice" range with respect to footwear. I've been wearing a simple Rolex GMT II or Sea Dweller in the military and continue to wear one in Law Enforcement. A decent watch is one thing that I won't compromise on. If I go boots up at work, I'm not going out wearing a plastic digital watch. See you on the boards. - D
Hello, My name is Michael and I'm in the process of learning how to dress in classic styles. I'm very traditional in my dress and feel the style and fashion has two different meanings. Style is classic and will last forever. Fashion trends come and go. I'm learning alot from this site and have started building a minimalist wardrobe with classic styles. I've learned that I've worn clothes to big. I just threw out (sent to Good Will) all the clothes that don't fit me. I started shopping at consignment stores for high quality clothes for discount prices. So far I've bought 10 shirts, 2 sweaters, 4 pairs of pants. I have some more work to do because I just learned that the pants I just bought are all too long. I'm in the process of getting them altered. I'm learning!
Not new to reading the forum but thought it was about time I joined. I also frequent askandy's forums and am still trying to figure out what my style is or should be. I enjoy hunting the thrift shops nearby and spend way too much time looking at shoes I can't afford on the interwebs. I guess I got into all this a few years ago when I was getting married and decided to build myself a morning suit from vintage pieces. It's all been downhill since then...
