Hi, I'm Justin. I'm 30 and live in LA. I grew up skating and am into street style, denim and streetwear.
Introduce yourself. - Page 302
My Name is Jake
I favor traditional, pedestrian, nay utilitarian men's wear.
Picture 1950's Army Air Corp uniform pants in tropic wool, canvas shoes , and a thin short sleeve Korean Tailor style Mod shirt. That's my Idea of cool.
Daily I wear a Pullman Brown Uniform set.
My Favorite Footwear must be my Nicks SmokeJumpers
I love those boots
I have a Pair of Russell Moccasins Boots also just a completely different type of wonderful.
I'm Johan, 25, in med school and, like most it seems, have been creeping here for about a year before finally signing up.
When I get interested in something, I get very interested (mildly obsessed is probably a term my gf would use. Is this a typical man thing?). It kinda started with watches, which led to shoes and spiralling downwards (upwards?) into most menswear/quality stuff. My style is not very dressed, but clean (no logos if I can help it). Reckon a classic leather jacket will be my next project.
I will probably trawl both classic menswear and streetwear here.
Look forward to take part in some the discussions and to learn more about menswear and style!
At the ripe age of 38 I have finally decided to begin dressing as a grown-up.
I used to be a street wear victim. Lots of jeans, chinos, sneakers, track tops, and Gore Tex outerwear. No more. Still in the process of learning about fabrics, styles, brands, and construction methods, I frequent lots of thrift stores in search of luxury bargains. So expect to "meet" me in the Classic Menswear forum and the Buy & Sell area.
Besides being a freelance journalist & photographer based in Copenhagen, Denmark, I'm also a DIY guy. My wardrobe closet, my tie rack, and shoe shine box are all home made. If the trend continues, I may soon start doing clothes alterations, too.
I hope to learn a lot here and share whatever I can.
In my wardrobe so far after ten months of thrifting:
Suits & coats: Armani, Zignone, and Polo Ralph Lauren; a Cerruti 1881 tuxedo; an exquisite sports coat by Raffaele Caruso Sartoriale Parma (just went to the tailor for a fitting). Plus one of the few things I bought new, a brown-red Corneliani sports coat, which is a true joy to wear.
Ties: About 50, mostly silk, some in wool. Highlights include Zegna, Hermés, Sambrook Witting, YSL, and Roger L. of Paris.
Shoes: Oxfords; penny, horsebit & tassel loafers – the Gucci ones are the beauty of the bunch.
Casual pants: Brooks Brothers, Hilfiger, Sunwill, and a wonderful pair of burgundy PT01s.
Shirts: Mostly colours and patterns. Some nice ones by Zegna, Corneliani, Boss, Valentino, and Stenströms.
