NEW MEMBER INQUIRIES & QUICK QUESTIONS- CLASSIC MENSWEAR: WK OF JAN 18, 2016

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

New SF member and not sure where to find the answer you're looking for?  Have a quick question that doesn't belong in a current thread?  Welcome, you found the right place.

 

This is a weekly thread where new users can ask quick questions and get a solid answer.  If a thread already exists that would be more helpful, we will point you in the right direction.  The only stupid question is the one that isn't asked.....so ask away!

Two questions:

1. What the fuck is Frankenstitching?

2. Why does the site now proclaim that I am a "renowned expert?"

"Frankenstitch" (as far as I know, a term coined at this forum here) indicates a reversed hand-stitch (executed from the underside) which just shows a row of dimples. Like the stiches on Frankenstein's monster where the various parts are stitched together.

Example: GazianoGirling style "Antibes"

You've got enough thumbs-up votes ("reputations"), to qualify for this level.

Thanks. Both make sense, although in the second case I'd present heavy argument. As I recall, you are (at least closer to) an expert on a subject related to the forum than I am.

You're on your way to being an onsite legend:bounce2:

That would be more believable, though, were such a title bestowed, I'd consider it dubious as well. However, "on your way" is hard to argue with since just about everything is "on the way."

Welcome to the forum @fuye.  Not sure about consignment store options in Boston, but maybe ask the guys in the thrift thread http://www.styleforum.net/t/480919/the-official-thrift-discount-store-bragging-thread-part-ii-return-to-the-thunderdome/27270#post_8282140.  Here is a good place to start for some overall advice http://www.styleforum.net/atype/5/Styleforum_101.  Best of luck.
