Hello to everyone as well. Looks like there are a lot of young guys here trying to learn the ins and outs of dressing properly. I'm 21 as well and just graduated college. I've been wearing sneakers and t-shirts every day for as long as I can remember, and just lurking this forum has been very informative. Glad to have finally made an account.
Introduce yourself. - Page 56
Hello all! I was advised by my style mentor (the ever fashionable Maddox Haberdasher of Monterey Bay) to check you all out. I've been interested in mens wear and gentlemanly sartorial style for the past couple of years now and finally feel I have the basics down enough to venture into some of the finer points of mens fashion. I've been relatively active on Reddit.com's "Male Fashion Advice" and find it a great resource but was hoping to move on to somewhere a bit classier. By all accounts this is the place.
I'm an active duty Marine so when I come home I look to shed the uniform I'm forced to wear every day and don something that lets me speak more about myself than a uniform ever could. My style tends to lean more towards conservative, Ivy League, prepster. Any who, I look forward to participating in the forum here.
Hi, I've lurked for a while, primarily looking around the suiting, waistcoat, and bag/briefcase threads. I work in a very casual setting, and so my attire is mainly "smart casual." I have a bag addiction that ranges from backpacks, messenger bags, and briefcases. I commute to work by bike and walking/transit, so functionality and comfort are very important to me. I am trying to huff less to work every day so I can carry slimmer bags and save my back/neck/arms.
Thanks for all the great advice here!
Hey guys, I'm Davis. Teenager in Chicago who has just realized how magnificent clothes can be and how complex style is, when you really think about it.
I've always loved cool looking clothes and now I plan on really putting my money towards quality clothing. I think I've finally reached that point where I can no longer dress like a little kid and get away with it; and besides, hollister and AF is lame anyway.
Good to be a new member on SF.
Hi, all. I'm on here to have fun and also (ulterior motive!) to find a buying buddy in Japan (PM me and we will be BFFs forever). I am a frequenter of NYC sample sales, and when I get a bit too exuberant (Thom Browne sample sale, gosh, that was a bit of a meltdown), you'll see me selling off the surplus on eBay under this same name. I can provide very useful advice about: obscure NYC sales and bargains (brand-new Hermès tie for $2.50? yeah, I found that), obscure French casual labels, and where to get the best inexpensive quality bespoke work done in India (which is a nightmare to negotiate, especially because some outfits build up good reputations and then get complacent and sloppy really fast). I also have an interest in interior design. Especially lamps and small storage units, which I variously refinish, restore, or make myself. I work in the culture industry and occasionally write fashion copy as a hired gun (I guess it would be a gun with mother-of-pearl inlay). Cheers!

I'm new to this forum. Like most people, I have always enjoyed the aesthetically pleasing. Be it cars, women, architecture and clothing. Until recently though (just finished my B.S.!) I didn't have much disposable income so I'm now just starting to dabble in the finer things. Just got some kawatako leather goods which are really nice, clark db's and some new selvedge denim to start off (nothing real exciting I know). I've lurked sufu and sf for a while so I'm not completely lost to the site. I don't know how much I can contribute to the site other then buying and selling but if I can be of some use I will gladly do so. Currently living in the American SW, but hope to move up to the NW soon.
Thanks for reading!
