Hello, I'm Matthew from the UK. I always thought a suit was a suit was a suit until I invested in a good one for my wedding. Good tailoring seems to be fractionally less addictive than cocaine.

Hi, I'm a young Thriftshopper and living in Europe, loving the golden Era (1930's-1940's).
My sartorial knowledge expands from basic levels to expert ones, almost offen consumer oriented.
Since I doubt, that anyone is interested in reading this thread, I think, that I've said enough.
Have a nice day.
Name is Brian but go by BDaniel. My friend J Norman started a blog www.jnormanpost.com and will be opening up a clothing store in Buffalo, NY called J Norman. He is a huge fashionista and has traveled across the country to check out the latest styles which he plans on incorporating with J Norman. Please check the site out and look for sales to begin soon.
Look forward to seeing what other people suggest in regards to clothing styles.
Happy to be here...
Yowzer here, based in Brisbane Australia. Been lurking a while and decided to join to be a participant in the interesting discussions here.
Learnt quite a bit just by lurking the last 2 years. Lurking gotme interested in shoes and the bug hasn't left since. Terrible, expensive 'hobby'... Cheerio!
Hello: Borbor here
Based in Toronto, Canada. Been lurking for a while, and fortunate enough to work in the fashion side of the business so I can dress on both sides of the coin. I do prefer to dress sharply on a day to day basis.
Got a huge interest in shoe, 7 pairs of golf shoes alone GF and I constantly fight for shoe rack space :)
I'm an attorney living in New York, originally from Chicago (city, not suburbs). I love good suits, when I can afford them (or snag a good buy). I also like street wear - raw selvedge denim, cool sneakers, crazy patterned shirts (no Robert Graham please), too much jewelry and accessories (for a dude - but no earrings), and baseball caps (once in a while.
Favorite recent purchases are a genuine panama hat from JJ Hatters on Fifth in Midtown Manhattan, a Christian Dior jacket that I snagged off the street for $10 - (I had to get some modifications done), some raw denim, no label jeans I picked up in Wicker Park in Chicago, and a ridiculous Pal Zileri pinstriped beige suit and floral tie from Leonard Paris, both at Dino Baldini (on Madison Ave in NYC), a store I love, but probably should not be shopping at very often. Also, a new Raymond Weil watch, which was a big step up for me in the watch game. I have a large collection of traditional keffiyas (Arab men's scarves) from travelling and living in the Middle East that I treasure more than anything.
I hope I don't come across as arrogant. I didn't have a ton of money growing up, and I probably spend a bit recklessly now that I have some. But I try my best not to get too attached to material things. Looking forward to contributing.

I've lurked for a while, but basically I started an account as I sadly might be selling my very new ToJ baseball jacket...
I didn't join before as I didn't think I had a whole lot to add to the threads. Still not sure, but oh well.
I'm moving to the US v soon, to keep studenting for a few more years.
