Introduce yourself. - Page 115
Hello my name is Andy. I am a father of four, and a husband of 22 years. I enjoy participating in 5k events, lifting early morning before work, and regularly attending church. I am a WIS, and require regular intervention to keep my collection of fine mechanical time pieces below a dozen.
I am excited about finding and joining this forum. I hope to use this as a helpful resource in researching and acquiring fine clothing. I also look forward the new acquaintances I may find here. I have made many long time friends on the various watch fora, both international, and as close as 150 miles away
Thank you for accepting my membership, and I look forward to being a part of this fine community.
Im Katriel, from NYC Real Estate Consultant and Broker. Moved about a zillion times and have a great appreciation for good clothing to the point where if it doesn't exist or I cannot afford it at that given time I'll just make it.
Huge auto enthusiast, in the protege phases of cigar and scotch appreciation; lifelong nerd.
Wear black ONLY when required and looking forward to all styleforum has to offer.
I decided to join because I like dressing up and the other forums I belong to are full of men that think it's gauche, passé, or effeminate to care about one's style...bollocks.
I wore suits in my mid twenties because of a job I had...fell away from that and wore western style shirts (the checked, plaid, and denims) justin workboots, cowboy boots, and Mexican stitched belts...now I'm bringing back ties, shirts, sweaters, with denim....going to buy proper pants....been on a sport coat obsession...bought a houndstooth BB and a J Crew Cord...nice....but I want more!
Going for staples. I'm a tall guy and nothing fits me off the rack...needless to say my tailor and I are well acquainted. Happy hunting!
This place is great, and I say that as someone who historically could not have cared less about fashion.
Hello all -
Happy to introduce myself, but I'm here to learn, read and ask questions more than talk. I live in Boston but grew up in Portland, OR. I work for a company that builds websites for non-profits. My new year's resolution is to dress better, so I'm starting with footwear (my first real pair of nice shoes was a pair of chili Allen Edmonds from Nordstroms, just sent them in to get recrafted). I've got a long, narrow foot, so I like that AE's come in "B" (I'm a 12B mostly, although I should ask them to measure me when I'm at the store next).
The discussion threads have been really helpful for helping to get my head around raw denim (among other things!) and I'm looking forward to buying a first pair -- ideally at a big of a discount via the Marketplace.
On that note, any tips on how to effectively use the marketplace or warnings about the potential of getting ripped off?
And as I'm a huge fan of well-made and local stuff, any good work being done in/around Boston I should put on my radar?
