I'm new to this particular forum, having seen it reference on another forum (shaving site), and while I don't spend a great deal of time online I do occasionally find the random forum discussion interesting, at least on certain topics. After a quick review, this site looked active enough and mature enough to be worth joining (insert inside jokes here.)
What to say about myself is always a challenge so I’ll keep it brief. I greatly prefer to frequent gentlemen's clothier/haberdashery-type shops over chain stores because I like the attitudes and breadth of knowledge of the people who tend to work in such establishments (plus the clothes tend to be more to my liking.) I usually dress casually (for me that means; odd trousers, odd jacket, odd waistcoat, etc.), although my wardrobe is not limited to casual wear by any means. I tend to wear what I want to wear rather than allowing the opinions of other to dictate my dress, and that often gives people the impression that I’m somewhat eccentric (think absentminded professor type), which is fine with me. Lastly, I try not to get embroiled in arguments involving any of the following topics: politics, religion, or personal taste in whatever (although I reserve the right to add to that list as needed.)
Hopefully that will give some background for use when interpreting my posts here. Thanks to all who managed to get through all that.
All Glory to the Hypnotoad!
