Hello Everyone! My name is Alexander, been lurking here for some time, just picking up bits of advice and ideas. I live in New Jersey, USA, and am currently a student. I hope I can contribute to this community that helped me understand just what it means for something to "fit" well.
Introduce yourself. - Page 192
Hello one and all. My name is Shane Jenkins, 34 years old, originally from Charlotte, NC but now reside (temporarily) in OKC, OK.
I have always had a pension for finer things and style but due to my DJ lifestyle I usually ended up drinking most of my extra monies.
So now I'm no longer in the clubs and looking to spend my hard earned bucks on stuff that I can't take with me, HA!
I'm a bit of a shoe whore (sneakers and dress) and a fan of bowties. After surfing around on here and picking up a bit of info I'm ready to splurge on some fine linens, out of the ordinary home decor...and a better watch. Thanks guys!
See y'all on the threads!
I find myself buying more golf apparel than anything else but fashion,and really shoes are still an interest. I presently live in the Atlanta area, but I have lived on both coasts of the country, from the Northeast to the Bay Area, and have travel in Europe and South American. Being a baby boomer I've seen fashion change over the years, and I am still a traditionalist when it comes to fashion, and can never get enough of reading Alan Flusser (Clothes And The Man) & (Dressing The Man) as a reference to style.
I am glad I came across styleforum.net and look forward to being a member and a active participant in some of the forums.

Greetings and Salutations,
I'm Michael, and for the past few years have been looking far too much like I raided the closet of the crocodile hunter.
I started reading SF back in 2012, hoping to slowly fix my wardrobe.
I'm currently in Seattle, and can usually be found with my vizsla, Tanner, at my side.
Good morning gents,
I have the pleasure to announce that we have opened the G&G official thread in the Classic Menswear section.
You ark of course welcome to comment, ask questions and enjoy what is to come.
Warm Regards in the mean time,
Tony, Dean and the Gaziano&Girling team.
Greetings- My Records Are Old is not my name. I have been into men's fashion seriously since 1990. I began with professional attire (was an elementary principal) with the Tommy dress line then moved to Ralph Lauren. My casual became Polo shirts, sweatshirts, etc. For 2 decades my shirts were all garnishing a Pony. I wore various jeans with Levi no longer in the mix. My ties were 75% Jerry Garcia , 25% Polo. Button down cotton dress shirts only unless with a suit. I have 100+ ties I will never wear again
2012 I lost 100+ pounds after a heart attack . I am selling all my clothes that are too large on eBay. I went vintage only wear Levi LVC /selvage jeans. No other brand. Vintage Chinos. Shoes are 60's lace workbooks and Ugg Leighton boots. I wear lots of colored Polo Veto sneakers. I do not wear clothes with label on the chest or pants except red or orange tags on Levi's and Polo on my Veto's. I no longer wear a belt unless wear dress slacks.
2013 I cut my shoulder length hair (often in a pony tail @ work) on my birthday. I had had long hair since 1996. I now have a 30's Gent style and a matching beard. I am selling all of my brand name clothing with logos regardless of size. (I went from 38-40 W to 33-34 XXL- L/M) I am buying shirts from vintage and thrift stores as well as eBay. The years range from 1940-1960. I have had tattoos on my shoulders for 18 years in a way the would be covered by a elbow length shirt, although I never wore short sleeved dress shirts.Now I have one sleeve that stops at the wrist and will begin the other this year.(black and grey, no color).
Glad to be here-My Records Are Old
