I found this site by googling again and again what the deal with brown shoes and navy suit is
I still am not sure what the right answer is and bought black shoes instead
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.
Have been lurking on here for quite a while and decided to become a member and contribute.
I am a US expat professional living in Bangkok, Thailand for the last 22 years. Love clothes and but put on a lot of weight living the "easy life" in Thailand. Down 120 pounds and now can wear off the rack clothes again and out of control purchasing clothing. Favorite shopping is online and Sawgrass outlet. .
hey all, jjmathews202 here.
i'm a college student who has been pretty interested in dressing sharp ever since I can remember, but i've really turned up the heat a bit since i've been at college. I love a pair of slim jeans, and am just foraying into the world of suiting and dress clothes.
Excited to be here!
I'm despairingmum, from the UK. I joined the site in June 2013 after trying to find out more about a vintage pair of Ray Ban sunglasses and finding out a vintage Ray Ban expert is a menber on this site.
That being said i'm really interested about what it is you guys do here and am hoping to be a very active member on the site.
Just joined. Hi all :)
Australian resident here, i live in Melbourne.
I've undergone somewhat of a transformation since the end of March, with regards to the clothes i wear, i didn't completely change my direction, however the change i have made is for the better. Now i'm always on the lookout for new clothes to build up my current set of staples and what not. Look forward to chatting with you all.
Used the site extensively as a guest reading on advice on purchasing a bespoke suit in London.

Have just posted pictures in one of my threads showing my baste fitting, would be grateful for any feedback!
I'm Nick, 30, born and bred in Toronto (if my username didn't make it clear). I work in television journalism, which means I can't afford most of what's posted here. Mainly looking to steal some ideas and tips and get an idea of what to look out for in case I see anything mentioned on sale.
