Like JJHunsecker above, I realized after navigating to Styleforum for the nth time in search of opinions and feedback about something I was considering buying, that it was probably time to join and contribute myself.
I'm a graduate student (anyone hiring TT positions in political philosophy??? Huh? No. Drat.) and am generally disappointed by the style choices of today's Professoriate. Work is work. I generally find myself attracted to sharp looking aesthetics that incorporate something of contemporary longer-term trends into generally classic looks.
