Hi my name is Chris I have been selling suits for 10 years and have read some of these post and find the information very helpful. I am always looking to learn more.
Introduce yourself. - Page 176
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.
I wear shorts and t-shirts. I was building my wardrobe by buying shirts. I f'ed up and lost weight now they don't fit me, I think I will get them tailored instead of buying new ones!
I only own sneakers, and no casual shoes that I can use with jeans and a shirt.
I like discussing random things. I like Guinness and drinking my whiskey straight.
I get hot really easily so I avoid layering until it gets below 68*
