I am an Army Officer who is transitioning to the civilian world. My wardrobe has been dictated by the Army for the past 9 years and I am subsequently clueless on how to dress professionally. I realize how I dress, impacts people’s perception of me and our relationship however brief or long. Initially I was planning on going to Men's Warehouse to purchase a job interview suit, after reading many posts here, I decided to do all my shopping at Brooks Brothers. After reading some more, I've become thoroughly confused and decided to join the forum for further study of business wear before wasting my funds. I agree with and enjoy many posters perspective on clothes here. Quality is paramount coupled with a reasonable price.

Hi Guys. I'm Noah. I live in NYC, though I travel for work a bit. I'm on a journey to improve my work wardrobe. I've been lurking the Classic Menswear What Are You Wearing Right Now boards, and I plan to start posting there soon in order to get some constructive criticism.
For my day job, I'm in User Experience. Most people haven't heard of it, so I'll try to explain. It's basically using psychology to make websites and applications easier to use and more fun. It's a blend of science and art, and I try to express that a bit with my clothing. That means that I need to keep my clothes business casual or semi-formal, but that I should also stand out.
For my side gig, I'm a magician. I'm part of a dinner show here in NYC. I tend to wear suits when I'm performing as well, so that's another distinct journey in terms of style.
I'm married. No kids yet.
I overthink things and I'm self-absorbed, so here's some more about me. I never wear brown. I enjoy a good scotch, tea, or coffee. And good food. I struggle with physical fitness. My friends think I'm a spy for the government. I have a PhD, and I did my dissertation on video games. I'm a maximizer (I tend to think there's a "right" way to do things). I take constructive criticism well.
I'm Brad, 20 years old from Essex!
Just stumbled across the forum after looking for some advice on a dress suit. Lover of all clothing, as well as having a soft spot for Watches.
I work in an office and play semi professional rugby.
Looking to improve my wardrobe as a whole.
My name is Classic and I´m a longtime reader of this forum. Now I finally decided to register and to bore you all to death with this brief introduction.
I am from Germany and style is essential to me in every part of my life. My preferred direction of clothing is undogmatic, relaxed and classic Ivy League. But please don´t confuse "undogmatic" with the trendy slim fitting-too short jackets, wannabe-ivy/fake-preppy rubbish, you see on tons of Tumblrs nowadays. Ok, I might be a little dogmatic.
I collect vinyl records (Jazz, Soul, all things 60s), I´m a mid-century modern freak (furniture, achitecture, etc.) and I enjoy good books, good food, whisky, gin and champagne. As for sports, I´m into skiing and sailing. I also run a little Tumblr myself: aguycalledclassic.tumblr.com
That´s all for now. Please don´t hesitate to ask questions.
Just a short introductory post from yet another new SF-member.
Who am I
My name on the forum as well as in real life is Django (I’ll leave the “V” to whatever imagination you may have and/or need). I am 32 years of age and am from The Netherlands, where I live happily with my wife and 2 kids (ages 2 and 5).
I work in accountancy, so I wear a suit about 5 days a week. With suits as well as with casual wear I’m sort of a conservative dresser, so i will most often be found in the Classic menswear section.
Other interests (apart from looking good ) include cigars, Scotch, being outdoors (i.e. walking, camping, etc.).
Why am I here
Although I used to spend some time on appearance/clothing, fatherhood has somewhat caught up with me and left me reaching for the quick and easy outfits (or bare essentials for wearing suits). Now I am trying to regain/rebuild a decent wardrobe and while doing so I encountered the forum searching for info on matching/selecting pocket squares.
Although I like (or maybe even love) to express myself, I still find myself to be a semi-lurker (for now at least). This is mainly because I try to refrain from posting ‘empty’ or useless stuff. Also… I tend to rave (see above), which makes posting on forums a time-consuming activity.
