Have been lurking for a long time but decided it's time to participate a bit more actively and contribute what I can in discussions.
See all you guys around
hello im spoon from manila,
i am a member of several online forums
such as golf, watches and now styleforum!
i have been an ebay rate for a decade shopping on a daily
basis only bec i love sick deals and theres aren't bespoke or out
of the box choices in manila and even if there were they'd cost double
of what they would be in the usa.
recently discovered shell shoes from a friend. purchased a couple of seconds
allen edmonds and alden from the bay and real happy. has changed my outlook
on shoes and think I'm hooked.
this forum is so daunting too many choices and hope i can meet a few guys here
who can give me a good deal and of course to learn everything there is about style
I'm Fuad, 34 years old. I help entrepreneurs to multinational retailers and wholesalers to improve their sourcing strategies on footwear and leather goods from Mexico. I live in Leon, Mexico. I've lived in China, France and Taiwan and traveled to many countries when I was younger. I'm married and have a beautiful daughter.
Mexico's fashion industry is developing fast and I'll be glad to give you some updates. I focus on footwear and leather goods.
Looking forward to participate in this forum.
Hey, I'm scapegoatwax.
I'm a 24 year-old plebeian who is trying to refine my casual wear into something that looks nicer. Currently, I'm a 6'0" guy who weighs 145 pounds. There's not a lot to me, but my thighs are comparatively big. The little bit of muscle that I have looks cut, but that's mostly because I have hardly anything else on my skeletal structure.
I hope to get lots of insight from these forums. I look forward to interacting with everyone here.
I've apparently ruffled some feathers. Unintentionally. In retrospect, you're right, my enthusiasm for white tie was wholly inappropriate for this forum on daily wear. Expressing it only showed a disturbing lack of stylistic tact and understanding. And yes, I knew that only diplomats/celebrities, else waiters, wear white tie. Makes my fault all the worse.
My handle's too pretentious, I see that now. I'll get that changed to something mundane and fitting. As to being a student - I meant a student of life. Merely that I keep a habit of learning wherever I go, whatever work (engineering, software, etc.) I do. Not a professional student - gods that would be a terrifying prospect.
I'll shut up and keep lurking. I've clearly got to learn - been far too personal and you don't care for that. Next time, just tell me straight up what I'm doing wrong, instead of shooing me away without explanation. I'm a nutter for self-correction.
Thanks, -namelessly handled
