My name is Michael, originally from Europe, constantly on the move, for the last 5 years working in SE Asia - no end in sight. I'm deliberately not more specific also as I don't think it matters and though I miss the homelands from time to time, I've rather become a world citizen (humbly, no false sense of grandeur), with the pros and cons (having f2f time with old friends and family is the hardest).
I finally managed to join the SF with the kind help of a friend on here, an affiliate seller I had the pleasure to do business with. Thanks a lot again, Conrad!
My respective request for help emails towards the admin ladies remained unheard but that's water under the bridge now.
I have done a lot of lurking and reading on here for the last couple of months, especially in the WAYWRN thread, mostly with admiration and also some amusement. The amount I didn't know about "decent" clothing, tailoring and how to dress "properly" is staggering. Funny thing, despite this I'm probably still one of the best dressed people in my office space, the only one to wear a jacket for one, not that that's any laurels to rest upon. There is a lack of access to reasonably priced quality items in the country I live/work in. So my only choice is online shopping which I have started to do with great success. I couldn't believe what can be found on $bay or here (cost me a small fortune already).
Why have I joined? So I can interact with members, ask for advise, have better access to affiliates.
