I've been getting into the Japanese whiskeys lately as they are quite a bit lighter/smoother (forgive me as I don't know whiskey tasting nomenclature) than most of the real deal whiskeys, where you can really taste the barrel. I find Hibiki 17yo is agreealbe even during the height of summer.

I am no biggie on nomenclature either, everything is on an amateur basis. I haven't ventured much in Japanese whisky yet, but I sure would like to. I picked up only scotch because I too do not have unlimited funds, and I thought that getting a good grasp scotch might be easier than taking on all of the worlds whiskies at once. I did however try Nikka From The Barrel, which I thought was quite a stunner for the money, from the reviews I have been reading, generally japanese whisky is about attention to detail and artisan craft. Much like how they go about near anything, be it blades(not thinking ninja now, Straight Razors and kitchenware), calligraphy or bonsai. Which I think is rather fascinating cool.gif.

Hey folks,

 

A math nerd that tries to learn from here. I enjoy fashion, arts and music a lot beside my geeky pursuit. I finally joined the forum officially after learning from it for 3 years. I like harmonizing conflicting/paradoxical elements, like spicing up the french elegance by rock and roll stuffs.

 

Clothing wise, I was inspired by Hedi Slimane a lot, then Tom Ford, Oliver Rousteing and the old Yves Saint Laurent. Also like John Galliano, Gareth Pugh, Thom Browne and Phillip Lim. I like DSquared's Jeans too. For shoes, Vass, Lobb, G&G, Santoni and Carmina appeal to me. Corthay, Max Verre and Sutor look very nice too. I think other Italian/French brands are also quite interesting, but I know too little about them. Lastly I like Charvet, Hermes and Brioni for ties.

 

That said... I'm mostly window shopping, I ve got very few of the above :( They mostly serve as inspiration :)

 

Look forward to the vast knowledge here and maybe some second hand nice stuffs!

Hello everyone, been lurking for some time ... living in Geneva, Switzerland and particularly addicted to shoes. Travel quite a bit for work and regular customer of several shoe shops and manufacturers such as Leffot, Skoaktiebolaget, Meermin, Edetal and of course Brogue in Geneva. Finally decided to become a member although I am afraid of all the shoe-porn being posted here! Thanks for having me

Hello everyone, My name is Ryan I recently graduated high school and I'm preparing for college life at St. Lawrence University. Towards the middle of my senior year I started a bow tie company with two of my high school friends. I'm a HUGE bow tie fan, and I'm just about always wearing one. Bow ties are just one of the many ways I've found that satisfy my quirky style and love for standing out in a crowd. I look forward to reading others posts on this thread, and I'm always interested in talking with other bow tie wearers. Not to mention if any of you need bow ties don't be afraid to message me about getting one. Anyways, I hope to hear back from some of you. Kind Regards, Ryan

Hello all,

 

My name is Nathan. I am a Pharmacy student living in Tampa Florida. I am severely uniformed when it comes to fashion, but I am ready to learn anything I can!

Hi everyone, I'm a mid-thirties grad student who lives in Italy.  I'm originally an American but I live here now and I love it.  I'm just getting started on learning how to dress well.  I have usually liked sorta simpler, more modern stuff like "sport" lines from Hugo Boss and Prada.  But I've been out of touch for about the last ten years so those lines and my interests could be very different now.  I'm hoping that being around here will help me figure out what I like again.  Very glad these kinds of communities exist!

Hello all. 

I am a young preacher living in Texas. 

 

Being in Ministry, I wear a lot of suits.

I have to look decent but not too flashy, and have to do it all on a very modest budget. 

 

Found these forums and have already learned a lot!

Greetings:
My name is Jason and I'm a senior financial analyst. Senior not being age, more skill level. 33 years old. Since I took my position I have lost over 30 pounds and dressing better. Living the example of being a leader and hoping it works its way down to my staff. Now I just got to figure out fashion! I don't want to wear the plain black suit everyday and this place looks to be my key! As soon as I feel a little more comfortable, I'll post my selection progress pics. My first goal is getting some nice blazers and actually pairing everything correctly. Thanks to all already that reading old posts have helped and pre-thank you for the help and constructive criticism to come!

Hi,

 

I'm Nate. I just enjoy fashion. Always have. I joined for ideas, and maybe getting some tips when I'm in a rut.

Or, providing advice if anyone needs some.

 

Yep.
