post #3931 of 4635

Hello! I'm Vincent. I'm 28. I joined today, just now. I was a professional introvert and gamer. I had 20 inches of hair and wore tie die shirts every day. I gave that life up and began working (by chance) in clothing retail. I realized that fashion was the missing piece in the puzzle that was my life. Not having fashion, but working it, selling it, fitting it, designing it, conceptualizing it... all those things make me tick. 

 

I have managed custom clothing and suiting departments for major retailers, and currently manage for one (although I shop mostly online), and am one (but far from) of the highest producing consultants in the Mid Atlantic region. I have been told that I am very skilled at what I do.

 

I love team-building and brainstorming new ideas with like minded people, and especially love problem solving,

 

I used to not feel good about myself, the way I felt, the way I looked. I took steps to make a change, and I like to help others take those steps.

 

Making people look good and feel confident is what I do, and I love it.

Hello everybody,

I'm Kevin, and I'm based in Canada. I've been lurking for a little while, but I decided to finally make an account.

 

I too didn't care too much about my clothes or appearance, but it changed about two years when my fashionista sister - she dragged me out to go clothes shopping and my go-to for a second opinion - left the country for love. Realizing that I had to start figuring this stuff out on my own, I began researching and stumbled onto this forum, among others.

My main passion is shoes. Almost by accident, it was the first thing I latched onto. I'm still trying to figure out my preferences on the casual side, however.

This place looks fun. I look forward to being a part of it.

Hello,

 

I'm David, age 30. I've been reading STF posts for a few months now, I finally joined after discovering the use of the advanced search feature to search the classifieds section for specific items (I almost wish I didn't figure that one out, way too many nice things in there for me to spend money on).

 

A few years ago I never thought I would be on a site like this. Most of the clothing I wore was either stuff I could find on the sale racks or things friends of mine decided they didn't want anymore. I think what started my journey into dressing better was realizing how much I hated clutter and how freeing it can be to own a minimal amount of possessions. I no longer bought things that were good enough but waited patiently until I found those that were exactly what I wanted. Usually this first meant doing a large amount of research on sites like this one to figure out exactly what I wanted. A good part of my time lately is dedicated to thinking what I really want in my wardrobe and I have been gradually getting rid of, upgrading, and filling any holes. I just hope that when I reach the point that all the holes are filled I can stop myself from taking peeks at the classified section of this site. :D

Hello. I'm Duncan. I've been reading Style Forum for a number of months now and have finally joined. I have gained an appreciation of well made men's clothes and suits through reading the forum and must admit I'm a bit of a clothes horse. I currently have 17 suits in my closet ranging from the Kenneth Cole I picked up cheap for work about 5 years back to the Canali I recently acquired. I live in Toronto, Canada and a number of my suits are Samuelsohn (5) and Coppley (3), both made in Canada and thus a little easier on the budget. I also have been following the shoe threads and have gained a greater appreciation for hand made quality through the forums. I recently added a couple of pairs of Dack's shoes made in England by Cheatley's, but sold through matthewdack.com. There is no going back once you've tried that quality of shoe, or for that matter, the same applies to a fully canvassed suit with some degree of hand finishing. I only wish I had the income to support my improving taste!

From stoner to baller, in one fell swoop of the barber's blade. Well done.

 

Make sure you lurk a fair while before posting any more fits. I can dig where you're coming from, colour-wise. But huge tie knots, loud paisleys, and match-matchy colours don't get a lot of traction here. You can push up against the forum herdthink all you like, but you will lose. Alas, it is what it is.

 

Welcome!

Hello,
My name is Ron, from lexington Ky. I came across the style forum, due to my uncertainty of what to wear to a beach wedding. I hadn't realized just how style dislexic I have been in everyday choices. dispite my wife's attempts to caution against poor choises, i have continued to make the same ones. I certainty have much to learn, and can hopefully develop my own style/wardrobe with time.

Cheers, Ron

His,
I am Chris, 47, and I am a sales management executive. I have always had an interest in dressing well, but my results have been hit or miss :-),

Several months ago, I was buying some Louboutin shoes for my wife at Nordstrom at it occurred to me that I should get some high quality shoes for myself. Unfortunately, the shoes they had for $500 looked exactly like what I had in my closet for $150. I knew their had to more fashionable and interesting shoes out there. I found j fitzpatrick's The Shoe Snob Blog, Parisian Gentlemen, and this forum about 4 months ago. All have been extremely helpful. My first "real" pair of shoes is a pair of Stefano's by J Fitzpatrick. I love them. Since then I bought 2 pairs of G&G's and have a pair of MTO with J Fitzpatrick in the works.

I look forward to learning and sharing a lot on the forum. Thanks!
