Hi there, I just joined. I'm from Paris, France and have been reading and enjoying this forum for a while. I'm interested in tailoring techniques and even though I'm in a very casual work environment, I have a small 'collection' of bespoke and semi-bespoke suits. Apart from the ones I have directly commissioned, I also enjoy finding older suits that have interesting tailored details. Mostly english and french. Many thanks for this forum, it's a very nice read.

Joining in ... you can call me kirker. I'm a law student who was sartorially ruined at a young age by the fact that my father had a closet full of Brionis and various Savile Row bespoke suits. Nowadays I spent undue amounts of time scouring stores (mostly online ones) for the best bargains on fine menswear across the board.
Suitwise, I have four Brionis, an Isaia and a "cheap" Zegna. You can probably guess my favorites. I had a Kiton for a while, but was offered too good a deal on it to pass up. Although law is a generally somber field, I try to push the envelope at least a bit with interesting shirt & tie combos under the suits (which are all variations of dark blue and charcoat, including chalk stripes and a glen plaid).
I wear cap-toe Ferragamos (NOT Studios) and almost nothing else, at least for dress shoes. For casual wear, I do a high-low mix: I'll pair a Helmut Lang shirt and black Varvatos lace-up boots with a pair of Uniqlo jeans I got on sale for twenty bucks. I'm particularly partial to Prada Sport in terms of casual shoes.
I look forward to soliciting feedback on my sartorial choices in the coming months and years. I have to start wearing a suit to work daily for the first time ever in two weeks, once my post-1L internship begins. (Note that I'm 32, a relative latecomer to law school, and spent close to a decade in the dot-com world wearing decidedly more casual wear.)
Hello to all those that have introduced themselves above as well as to those yet to make their appearance.
Interests: Grenson boots, Wings & Horns clothes, and the confident reassurance that comes with wearing it well.
Very excited about the Viberg sample sale. I live in Victoria, BC! Wonder if I can go in and pick up whatever I may be lucky enough to purchase?
I'm Terence, just joined the forum a few days ago after a bit of lurking the forums for a bit. As a teenager/young adult, I was more into streetwear and all that, but my style has evolved a bit more into the menswear category, partially due to the #menswear phenomenon, though it is still evolving. Hoping to contribute and gain some insight everyone in this forum.
Hey all -
I'm Jay, joined in order to acquire some style. I'm a bit of a carhart, logging boot, t-shirt and beat-up ball cap guy. Going through a physical transformation (fat loss) and seeking to upgrade the wardrobe once I get to my goal of single digit bodyfat.
Going to be lurking for the time being, until I get a better grasp of the basics.
