It's an Acquisition for the Collection Disorder.
And I'm not doing a lot to help it by joining here!
Good day gentlemen,
I have been lurking on this forum (these fora?) for some months and have learned many valuable rules. Recent downtime in the office has seen me spend considerably more time browsing threads & threaks and so I thought I would finally join up. There are so many slanging matches, it just looks like fun.
I am one of the hated peoples (I work for an investment bank). I have lived in Adelaide, Sydney, Singapore and shortly will be in London. I am late 20's.
My previous "atas" hobby (atas is a Malay term for upper floor/snobby which I have been labelled and chosen to own) has always been wine but in the last 12-mths I have become quite obsessive on clothing too - definitely focussed on the CM space (my view is I am getting older, I should start dressing like an adult).
I blame Styleforum almost exclusively for the amount of money I have therefore spent in the past year (a trend I cannot foresee reversing in the immediate future).
Peace out homies. ----------
Greetings. When I'm not in scrubs (I am an RN), I like to look good. I am a somewhat recent convert (<3 yrs) to traditional American dress (navy blazers, flat front chinos, OCBD, madras, loafers etc.), but as my closet has filled, I find I am more interested in branching out into other areas I have yet to explore. I have spent many enjoyable hours discussing trad (seems like a dirty word sometimes lol) on another forum, but as I am dipping into different things like denim, it just seemed right to pull the trigger on starting a SF account. I very much like the vibe on the dedicated Gustin thread and I look forward to wasting many leisure hours here.
My name's Dave. I'm a 38yr old Aussie who lives in Hobart and works on ships.
I found this site while looking for a suit for my upcoming wedding.
I already have a few suits that I had made in Singapore. The fit is great, the quality is ok, but after reading up here, I now realise what I REALLY want in my next suit.
