I'm Tracy and came by this forum for some styling advice. Which better place to ask, right?
Thanks for a great resource.
I'm an accountant from Calgary. I had read some positive reviews about Olympia Tailors back when it was run by Carl Pepe. Since then his son Don has taken over and run the business into the ground.
I wish to discourage anyone who had read the positive reviews of Olympia Tailors from the past from attempting to do business with this dishonest liar and thief.
I always had a fascination in finding affordable apparel and making it look good. After experiencing the retail life as a former employee of Urban Outfitters, I started to develop a sense of forecasting specific trends. Once I called it quits as a sales rep, I started to have an open-mind when it came to trying new styles. Now, I'm willing to share my tips and learn newer trends through this forum.
Glad to be a member!
I live in the East Bay area of northern California. I have a wife and a 3-year-old. My fashion tastes have changed recently as my wife has encouraged me to dress younger. Till now I've worn only suits, slacks, dress shoes, and I have an addiction to dress shirts. Now I combine jeans and vans in the lower body with dress shirts, cardigans, and sport coats in the upper body. I like the new look, but I still think there's nothing better than a great looking suit!
Thanks for reading,
Hello to all,
I have been lurking on the CM threads for a while and thought I'd join. Not sure if I will post all that much other than the occasional picture of a Sam Hober tie as I have acquired quite a number over the last few months.
I am a 40-something living in Atlanta (East Cobb specifically). My workplace is casual but I have taken to wearing suits (generally) or odd jackets & ties (occasionally). I definitely stand out in the office but I am comfortable with that and I am high enough in the organization so that I don't catch much flak. My boss and the CEO seem to appreciate my "effort" to provide an example of better dress.
I don't abide by all the guidelines that I have read about here (and other places) and am continuing the process of developing my own style. I am not drawn to plain suits or shirts but I do like plain ties. I like dress shoes of all colors and styles.
Thanks for letting me join your community.
