Elegance and style is not an option for me.......it's a must. Whether I'm in the office, traveling on a plane for business or simply going to the grocery store - appearance is always on point. A few things I cannot live without: pocket squares, fine clothes and European shoes (approximately over 100 pairs). I am 100% infatuated and a collector of GUCCI, especially in shoes.

Hello, i'm Nesta and i've just arrived at the Style Forum.
I love shoes, hand made ones of the Goodyear welted variety, largely created in my neighboring county of Northamptonshire, UK, the home of the proper shoe.
Brogues, Monks, Oxfords, Chelseas, Chukkas, leather soles, Dainite soles, caring for them, polishing them, enjoying them. Oh, and trainers too, especially retro ones from my childhood era when trainers like Reebok Pump and Air Max were everything. But I mainly wear shoes now as i'm that bit older!
That said, i'm here to learn lots more about how to look my best as a 30 something and probably also learn to spend more money...
I like Edward Green shoes, Drake's ties, Barba shirts, and custom suits. I almost never wear a pocket square. :/
Once I moved to Europe I started paying full retail - before that 50% was my hurdle. Now I have less space, so I only want a few nice things.
I like art and used to make a living as a musician. I am not a fan of entertainment.
I dress in a suit daily, but some of my favorite times are spent in flipflops and board shorts.
I do not post too often... but I have been around for a little while.
Recommendation to newbies? Wait until you find your fit before you go big on a wardrobe...
Hi, I'm Julien, living in France, of white french (father) and black african (mother descent). I'm 26 years old employee / part-time student.
I discovered this forum by accident while searching some references for white buck shoes (and l still haven't found average-priced one ... size 8 US /UK 7... lf someone can help ).
l'm relatively new to the clothing world (for a year now), thanks to my big brother for introducing me to this sect...
l'm interested in different types or looks, from preppy to ninja-samurai stuff, and l alternate these looks depending on my mood. l also have a huge interest in music , mainlt 70s 80s pop-rock-soul-new wave stuff and some current stuff (Twin Shadow, Mayer Hawthorne, Van Hunt..). style icons being David Bowie, Prince as well... Maybe l'll post some musical creations here some time hehehe .
l love reading too, drawing (i draw most of my outfits before wearing them, and l'm trying some designing too...)... Whoever had the idea of this site, l thank him and the many contributors here who helped me improve my style...
and l hope to stay around here for a long time !
