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.
