Name is Ubuntu, meaning 'human kindness'
I'm 18, from Wakefield, West Yorkshire in England and I have a pre-occupation with British subculture. Mod, Skinhead and Punk in particular. My favourite band is The Clash by a fair way but I also love any form of Rocksteady, Ska or Reggae

This is the first time I've used the name on a message board as it is the first message board I've been on where the type of person you are may matter. So, I wanted to make it something that represented how I try to be in my life.
So, first time I've had that question haha
New to the forum (though I've been hanging around Reddit's MaleFashionAdvice subreddit a fair bit, mostly just lurking and reading), but in short I'm a 21 year old guy in Las Vegas, working as a photographer (newspaper photojournalism and weddings primarily, and some editorial magazine stuff) and also finishing up a Psy degree at UNLV. About a year/year and a half ago I decided to expand beyond poorly fitting jeans and cargo shorts and band t shirts to progressively more classy and stylish clothing. The past few months I've gotten even more into it all and started learning more about style and quality brands etc, so here to keep on reading, learning and sharing (and also buying and selling a little too).
New member here, came here from Reddit's MFA and SA's male fashion thread. I've been on a journey of weight loss for about 3 years now, started at 405 and down to 255, so I can wear some decent clothes now, especially now that I'm down to XL shirts and 40 slacks/pants in general. Just trying to look better and feel more confident about myself. Thanks
Hi everybody. Another new guy here. I'm a 28 year old freelance graphic designer and illustrator in the Detroit area. Since I work from home, I don't often need to worry about how I dress. But I am interested in classic menswear and slowly building a wardrobe of quality pieces, for when I do need/want to dress thoughtfully. I originally found Styleforum because of the thrift/discount bragging thread and have been keeping an eye on all of that stuff.
Hey SF. I've been lurking around here for a while now. I've really active over on Reddit's /r/malefashionadvice for a year or two now. As of late however, I've been feeling really bored with their style have come over here for some fresh perspective. I don't know if it's the summer look or what, but I will kill someone if I have to see 18 commenters talk about how great and creative a blue OCBD and chino shorts with boat shoes looks.
I've been at this fashion game for about 3 years now, and oh wow did I start out bad. I started with terrible button-ups over oversized graphic tees like most, then decided that SUITS ALL DAY EVERYDAY was how to dress better (I was a freshman in college -,- ). Also, no, they did not fit. I got seriously into fashion about a year ago when my girlfriend broke up with me and I decided to improve my appearance.
Nowadays, I don't really know what I would label my style as. It's kinda a prep/biz casual/slight streetwear... thing.
As for my work I run a web marketing company in northern VT, though I'm looking to move us to Boston within a year or two. Very limited market up here.

Hi. After lurking for a while, I decided to create an account here.
I recently turned 40 and decided that I want to dress like a grown up. No more suit jackets masquerading as blazers. No more ill fitting shirts or pants. So I'm reading and learning. My hobby in the immediate future will be in picking up some more shirts online. I've already bought several from cottonwork (was quite happy with the experience overall), am also looking to try something from mytailor.com.
Anyhow, I'm most interested in classic style. I have good intuition about space, color and light, but an atrophied aesthetic sense I'm trying to rebuild / rescue.

Started my apprenticeship at a shirt company and since then been a little bit addicted to men's woven shirts in particular and cloths in general and love leather, so another passion besides shirts are shoes & leather jackets.
Hope to enjoy each visit here.
