I am kenan from istanbul/turkey. Found you guys googling. Great group you have got here.
Looking forward to share with you.
Hello, I'm BourbonCowboy86, a tax attorney from Oklahoma now living and working in Boston, Massachusetts. I've been coming to Style Forum for the better part of two years and decided I'd finally like to add to the conversation. I dress conservatively and I love suits, especially when I can wear a waistcoat. I'm a huge fan of bow ties, and wear them often. I'm a big guy, 6'7" and about 275 if I haven't had breakfast yet. As a consequence, it's sometimes hard to find clothing that fits and my tailor here in Boston is on speed dial right after my mother and just before 911. Classic Menswear is my usual haunt, although I'll occasionally work up the courage to venture into the more casual neighborhoods of this site. Opening my closet, there's an entire rack of Brooks Brothers suits in 50 Extra Long, close to 100 bow ties from Beau Ties of Vermont, and nearly double that in regular neck ties. With big feet comes big shoes, and my go-to pairs for work are Allen Edmonds Park Avenue's in 14 EEE, with a few loafers and boat shoes thrown in for good measure. I've already learned a lot from other members of this site, and I hope to contribute to someone else's sartorial education.
Hi SFers, I'm Matt and am joining in order to bolster my knowledge about where to buy suits and dress shirts and what to look for in construction quality. I'm in the process of transitioning my wardrobe from grad-school casual to NYC business casual, and I've found the opinions of members on the forum to be tremendously valuable as I begin the journey. Looking forward to a long tenure on SF!
I'm Erranttraveler and I just moved to Hong Kong and decided to take the plunge and join up now that I'm in a city where I feel I can afford to delve into the world of custom tailored clothing. This site has been an invaluable resource, and I look forward to taking part in the discussions here.
I'm grubi, a 39-year-old IT guy in Tallahassee, FL. I have two kids, three cats, and one wife. I got into dressing like a grownup about three years ago and have gone through the major stages: over-enthusiastic peacocking, frustrated size issues, readjusting, losing weight, and finally, getting better.
I work in environment in which t-shirts and shorts are acceptable work attire, but I have found myself preferring to wear button-up shirts (big fan of OCBDs), corduroys/chinos/jeans, and nice casual shoes (bucks, chucks, and brogues). I have found the value of owning multiple watches (it's more jewelry than timepiece), found myself getting more into shoes, and I've always been a hat guy. My wife and I have recently lost a lot of weight (ask me how someday) and we had to buy whole new wardrobes. Our combined experience and tastes (and her Jedi-like penchant for finding a bargain) find us in the planning stages for our own style-and-shopping consultation business, hoping to help people look great.
I hope to learn a lot here, get some great ideas (inspiration!), and hopefully make some friends. When it comes to style, I have my loyalties and preferences, but I love a good discussion. Thanks.
