We are Aaron, Tim and Sean, long time readers of SF but new affiliates!
We are all from Seattle but spent the last four years abroad learning the ins and outs of product development and manufacturing of watches and leather goods, making these luxury products for other brands.
Our mission with Vincero Collective is to make these same premium products, which normally cost between $500-$1500 from luxury brands, acessible to more men by selling direct online and removing the high brand name mark ups and inefficient retail system.
We also crowdfund all new collections in limited two week campaigns so that our community can receive new products first at even further discounts and help us decide what gets made.
Check out our affiliate thread for more!
I'm a youngish professional (30's), and my work uniform is usually dress pants and dress shirt.
Occasionally, I get the chance to dress up, and usually end up being on the higher end of dress for the occasion, which I prefer.
I've always appreciated my Italian-made Donna Karan suit (don't snicker!) that I bought for post-school interviews, but have been largely contented with Boss-level stuff and a decent Armani Collezioni suit.
Until.....I was recently introduced to bijan at a local high-end men's consignment store. That has now started me on a kick to almost completely recycle my wardrobe over time to higher-end items.
And because of a lot of lurking, I'm becoming much more of a clothing snob thanks (or no thanks!) to all of you on SF!!!
I'm now dabbling in picky thrifting and trolling eBay for deals, because my taste currently now far exceeds the budget for new.
I'll share some of my recent wins and continue to enjoy the clothing journey.
Hi, my name is Samuel and as my username covertly implicates I am a recent graduate of Louisiana State University, History BA, and Political Science BA. I recently married as well back in June 2014 so it has been a busy year for me. I was attracted to this sight after stumbling upon the thrift store bragging thread over on the classic menswear board. Mother and I had always been thrift store junkies and it was interesting to see the same coming from a 10 year ongoing thread.
Hi, I'm a 50 yo IT geek that currently works @ home & leads a small team of developers. I'm moving to a go-to-work job when my current gig is up - probably about 6 months so I'm accumulating some office clothes now.
Being work-at-home and not being much at dressing myself in the first place, I'm effectively a double noob here to garnish information from those that have a knack for this sort of thing. Um, thanks in advance :P

EDIT: I asked from first q here;
Hi All - I live out in the country in Virginia and dress accordingly. I like simple, masculine and somewhat preppy clothes and shoes. I tend to avoid loud, colorful and what I consider "slick" styles. I guess I am the opposite of urban, metrosexual. Growing up, the crowd I ran with only wore 3 types of shoes -- dark brown penny loafers (the ones with the small half moon coin slot), Clark desert boots and Sperry topsiders. I spent my summers racing sailboats so my boat shoes always had a salty authentic look. We mostly wore corduroy levis, Tattersall shirts and crew neck Shetland sweaters. The winter coat was a stadium coat with horn buttons. In the Spring and Fall months, we might wear a tweed jacket over a sweater with jeans or cord levis. This simple approach to dress has never gone out of style and has stuck with me. At work, I have replaced the jeans and cords with khakis and gray flannels. I have also added some C&J boots, saddle shoes, rough style wingtips to the shoe rotation. I love Barbour jackets and have several. In fact, the horse and hunt scenes where I live have been great influences on my personal style and taste.
I have enjoyed this forum and gotten some great advice on items I'm looking to add to the wardrobe. I also appreciate that style is highly subjective and very much a function of each person's culture and environment.
Look forward to interacting with you folks!
