post #3796 of 3810

Hi, I am Ken.

 

I am originally from the Northeast U.S. (Philadelphia), but I now live in suburban Atlanta.

 

I come to this forum often, by way of Google, when I have fashion questions, clothing brand comparison questions, or shoe brand comparison questions.

 

It is fascinating to read what a bunch of highly opinionated experts have to say about fashion - and I mean this in a straight forward, honest and non-sarcastic way. The amount of information held by the members of this site is amazing.

At any rate, I am handy with a sewing machine and do much of my own tailoring. i also own a cast iron cobblers last and do a lot of my cobbler work. I do not claim to be an expert or artisan at either, nor do I have the time to dedicate to becoming an expert or artisan at either. Thing is...I can add a thin rubber sole to my boots and shoes, I can replace my heels and make my own combination heels and I can take in and hem my pants..that's pretty much all I need to do for the most part.

 

The one downside of reading this site...you find out pretty quickly, just how entry level, your large and highly touted collection of fashion actually is LOL

 

I have more Cole Haan, Kenneth Cole and Mark Nason shoes than is...well, I don't have a great metaphor, but suffice it to say, I own quite a bit. Lucky me, have never paid $400 for Mark Nason boots, but learning what I have learned reading this site over the years, it's a crime that they ever sold Mark Nason boots in that price range...

 

I always bought my shoes at prices under retail, so I don't feel so bad about not owning Alden, Church or Allen Edmonds...

 

Truth be told, I am just now in my 40s and up until now, a wool crepe Ungaro suit, coupled with a higher end pair of Kenneth Cole shoes has always suited me just fine...and garnered lots of compliments. But, like my tool collection, it is time to upgrade  my fashion to what I call heirloom quality stuff...

 

I really appreciate this site...signed, StyleForum fanboy...

Hello,

 

I'm Phillip and I'm from Oklahoma. I'm currently attending law school in pursuit of a career as an attorney. I appreciate classic style and well-made products, although I'm guilty of being brand loyal and liking designer clothing (at a good price point). I look forward to contributing to this forum and gleaning knowledge wherever I'm able to. Thank you for having me!

Hello all,

 

Name is Jeff, and I am a 44 y.o. man, and reside in Las Vegas, NV. My past career was driving a truck, and was tired of that lifestyle. I decided to quit, take the money I had saved up for a home, and used it to acquire an education. In Dec. of 2014, I received my BSBA in Finance, from UNLV, where I graduated Magna Cum Laude w/ a 3.92 cumulative GPA. I am starting my new career as a credit analyst for a local Commercial bank. I, for the first time in my life, will be required to wear suits every day, and that is why I am here. To get help with the transition from manual labor to the corporate world.  

 

 

I have questions about differences in shoes, i.e.; balmorals, bluchers, oxfords, wingtips, etc..,

Which shirt and suit hangers to use, as well as, which website or mfg makes a quality hanger that isn't the price of the hanger project?

Which clothes brushes & shoe brushes, to purchase.?

Should I use dust covers over my suits that I will be rotating through constantly?

 

I have been reading the forum for many days now, and while some questions have been indirectly answered, many of the responses and original threads are many years ago, and things could have changed. So, repetitive questions from me will be coming, please be kind, and point me in the correct direction.

 

Glad to be here, and cannot wait for my transition to be complete. I have a long way to go, and a lot to learn, but I am sure with support from you all, and a bit of advice, I will transition efficiently, and look good doing it.

Hi,

 

I am Lee I am just about to graduate university and about to leave behind my casual wardrobe as I head off into the world of business. I needed to start finding some tailored suits and big boy pants hence how I ended up here. I have always admired tailored suits, briefcases and dress shoes from a window but haven't ever had the reason or money to buy them but now I do!

I'm Casey, I'm a freshman in college, and very new to this forum. I'm on here for my composition 2 class, but I'm also addicted to style. I can put many stylish outfits together. I have lots of shoes, jewelry and nice tops to go with some very snazzy bottoms. I hope to get a lot of tips about style, and hope to give out some of my tips and advice ☺️

What's up?! I'm Nicholas and I live in New York (soon-to-be Manhattanite). I'm currently a pre-law major in college with the aspiration of attending law school in NYC in a year or so. I am also a fine art photographer outside of college.

 

Fashion is life! As a sartorial enthusiast, I was obliged to create an account here on styleforum with the intention of learning new and exciting things. I believe clothes are an artistic expression of personality and so I approach fashion with the utmost seriousness and treat my wardrobe more as an art collection than I do a bunch of clothes and shoes. 

 

Also, I am a firm believer in the idea that the strongest of wardrobes value quality over quantity and that an exceptional wardrobe is one that seamlessly works together. 

 

See you around the forums. 

 

Nicholas.

Eric here, living in Los Angeles.  You can pronounce my handle "strang-ways" as the "e" is silent.  

 

Honestly, I think Men's Wearhouse has some nice things, too :fonz:
