Like my name, I'm a t-shirt and shorts kind of guy most days (lovely SoCal weather permitting), but I do like the dress up when the occasion presents itself. My philosophy when buying anything is buy once, cry once. lol
Hi everyone, I'm a 28-year-old Ph.D. student in New England. I've been reading up for only a few months and in the process of discovering my style and improving my wardrobe. I'm getting married in September and it was thinking about suits and reading up on all the options in that department that got me interested in improving my fashion more generally.
I typically wear casual button-downs (e.g., plaid) that are too wrinkled, jeans that are too baggy, and boots with uninentionally distressed leather. But I've realized [some of] my mistakes and am trying to improve. I've been teaching a lot recently which gives me an opportunity to dress up without looking overdressed. I've started to wear blazers and chinos occasionally, which is adventurous for me.
I'm also a big guy, at 5'11" 215 lbs. I had a weightlifiting hobby for a while, felt damn good at 185 before getting a hip injury and quickly gaining 40 lbs. I'm hoping I can hit 185 or at least come close for my wedding, already lost 10 lbs. since a month ago. But I still can't do all the lifts in my old routine which is a challenge. Anyways, I think a lot of my typical clothes choices are not very flattering for my body type. I have a lot to learn!
Mick here. After a long career in advertising wearing very casual clothing, I now work for a big company in a management role. So I've started to dress like a grown-up. I am partial to Italian clothing (Belvest, Canali, Zegna) and English footwear (Edward Green, C&J). I've been lurking here for several years and am excited to participate.
My name is Jordan. I live in West Fargo, North Dakota and I work as a men's wardrobe consultant. I love fashion, and I am constantly looking to learn more about it as to best help my customers and myself. I enjoy reading the threads here, and decided to join so that I can throw my two cents in every once in a while. I look forward to interacting with you all!
