post #2776 of 3401

I've been reading the forum for quite some time now, but never felt the urge to post anything as I've only recently started caring for my wardrobe. It all started off with a promotion to the central office of my company. It soon became apparent that shorts and flip flops simply weren't appropriate. So I started doing some research on how to start a formal wardrobe and that led me to SF. I've since bough a couple of bespoke suits (through an offer at Barcelona´s Señor, in Passeig de Gracia) made of Loro Piana and Vitale Barberis fabrics. Sets of plain shirts from TM Lewin, Brooks Brothers, and Eton (with a 2x1 offer when they opened their online UK store). Three pairs of shoes, started off with a pair of tan Loakes to try my hand at polishing, and have since bough two Church´s (both black and burgundy oxford toe caps, bought at Bicester Village)  and a pair of Carmina´s monks at their Bilbao store (no discounts on this one).

 

I bought a couple of v neck merino wool jumpers and dodgy high street cashmere cardigans (on TK MAX, terrible quality) to cover the gap until this sales and have now bought three Johnstons of Elgin cashmere jumpers (£160 for 2ply and £165 for 3ply). A couple of cashmere scarfs on neutral colors. And two complementary watches (a second hand Breitling Aerospace, and a silver Tissot Visodate).

 

In total I've spent in renovating my wardrobe just shy of £3,000. Which is I think a pretty good deal overall considering that the general quality of the clothes and accessories is very good, and the Carmina's alone make up for over 10% of the budget.

 

I hope to keep learning from the forum and hopefully (once I get my new mobile phone), sharing some pictures of my beloved new clothes. It's amazing to look back 6 months and realise how much I've changed. So much so that I think my wife is convinced I'm having an affaire... :colgate:

Greetings stylish gents! I've been a long time reader on the forum but decided to sign up after I started a menswear blog. I recently moved from Seattle to Saigon and missed my wardrobe so much I thought a blog would be the only way to quench my thirst for the lack of wearing a blazer on a daily basis. No sweaters or thick flannel trousers for me anymore -- well at least not until I move back in a year or so. I'd describe my style as paisleys, plaids, pinstripes and polka dots.

 

I'm looking forward to interacting more on the site and getting to know some of the members. I discovered Sam Hober ties on Styleforum and recently ordered one. Once I get it I'll post a pic to that thread. If you wish to check out my blog you can find it at http://postandmodern.com.

 

P.S. If anyone on here is currently living in Saigon and would like to grab a beer send me a private message.

a message told me to introduce myself on here, so here I am. I'm Sam. I decided to finally make an account on styleforum after lurking around for a few months; other than that, I've been a part of the /r/mfa community for almost two years now.

 

I'm a high school student, I like clothes (as you probably were able to figure out) and theatre a lot. I don't watch many movies (still like em) but I listen to a ton of music.

 

that's about all. I'm looking forward to participating in another fashion-interested community!

Hi there!  My name is Brandon, and I am new to the forum.  Came here trying to find information about an item I saw a celebrity wearing online, but I am very interested in the forum!  I am newly thin and able to enjoy the fashion I have always had to watch from a distance after weight loss surgery and a total loss of 172 pounds!  Nice to meet everyone!

I may be late to the Style Forum party, but I'm here now.

 

My name is Joe. Under the name Giuseppe Timore I have authored the blog An Affordable Wardrobe for over five years now. I deal with fine menswear and other lifestyle topics, all bought at thrift stores or on a tiny budget. It takes some doing, but it can be done. I am an inveterate cheapskate, but as my masthead says, penury is not an excuse.

 

I also run an online shop and small physical shop where I offer fine second hand menswear at very low prices. I came to Style Forum to join the interesting conversations here and meet new friends. I look forward to getting in on the chat.

 

Thanks,

Joe

On twitter you can follow me under the alias "The Cashmere hunter", derived from my love of the precious fiber cashmere. I will be posting pictures of some of my cool finds very soon, and should update is regularly.

 

I think this is a great forum, and I look forwards to learning more about mens fashion and style.
