Hello! I'm ChickenBall, a Chinese Canadian dude living further north than most, working in IT. I'm a tech, geek, part-time freelancer, occasional gamer, but otherwise zen guy.
I got into suits and business/professional menswear after watching Neil Patrick Harris "suit up" in How I Met Your Mother, although I now prefer the stylings of Jeff Daniels in HBO's The Newsroom. However, I worked in a nickel mine for the past 8 years so wearing suits without destroying them wasn't really an option until I got a job at the municipality this past month. While their dress code is business casual, I've decided to take the plunge and suit up everyday for work (the ladies there give their earnest approval).
I started out learning about suits from AskMen.com, but this site is more comprehensive; I regret buying a few pieces now, but you live and learn. I mostly lurk and research, but if I feel compelled to add something of value to the conversation, I'll be there unless somebody else beats me to the punch.
