    Hello everyone my names cliff, I'm probably come from a different field then most here.

    I'm an ex tattoo artist who now works at a small law firm now. Ive become more interested in style over the last few months. I mostly stick to darker colors and patterns, because light colors usually show my tattoos a good amount. So if anybody could point me in the direction of thicker dress shirts that would be very helpful. Located in the US.

    Hey Guys...I'm Sean and I live in downtown NYC. I am a real estate investor/developer and a fairly casual guy. Typical attire is jeans (prefer APC these days) and sport coats or a Barbour jacket. I happened upon Styleforum while researching options for brogue boots online, which led me to purchase my first pair of Trickers earlier this week at Grahame Fowler (I bought a pair of black Stow boots and am loving them). I am a bit of a watch geek, with a penchant for vintage Tudors and Rolexes, particularly unusual pieces from the 60s and 70s.

    Glad to be a part of the Styleforum community! Regards

    Hi all,
    Chazz from Edmonton Alberta here, although I wouldn't be surprised if half of you don't know where that is.. I'm 20 years old, been working as a power engineer for the past 2 years. I always strive to be the best dressed man in the room, don't ask me why as I'm really not sure. I mostly wear denim and chino's with polo's/ button downs as I don't get to wear my suits nearly as often as I would like. And that's all I got for now.

    Hi All

    I'm Nathi I love clothes and a loyal brand supporter too.I'm not much of a fashion junky but have a good taste in all aspects of life. I think limitlessly
    I have learned my life lesson
    Now I move with aggression, use my mind as a weapon
    Cause chances are never given they taken like interceptions. Yet still I have a humble soul and have a brave approach with the aid of the Diesel motto "Only the brave "My wadrobe consists of these Clothing Brands,55Dsl ,Zara ,Diesel , Gstar ,Burberry , Replay ,Timberland ,Polo ,Gant and Nike sports gear. Grew up in the Towship called Dieploof in Soweto and was was introduced to a multiratial culture in 1993 and can relate to people from different walks of life and acknowledge and respect all the diverse cultures that are in existance . I'm hoping to learn and from the forum and graduate in terms knowlge acquired for application as time progresses

    How's it going everyone, names John.

    I'm a 20 year old student (so not at all loaded with $) in Canada. I usually purchase clothes online, but might occasionally go to store for things I can find online and etc. I used to go on ebay a lot but not too sure anymore, especially on authenticity (so far only had 1 problem though). Anyway, if anyone could give me some tip/advice on where (which site or seller on ebay and etc) it would be very much appreciated! My favorite brands are armani collezioni, dolce & gabbana, burberry, saint laurent, and E. zegna. Hope i can learn a great deal from you guys.

    Ciao

    Hello everyone,

    My name is Phil. I'm based in the NYC area.

    I am an avid collector/supporter of Crockett & Jones footwear. I currently have 14 pairs, with #15 an MTO being made right now for delivery in March.

    I also have quite the collection of Gucci shoes, like 20+ pairs.

    I have large collections of off-the-rack and bespoke clothing from brands such as Turnbull & Asser, Ralph Lauren (Blue, Black, & Purple Labels), Tom Ford, and Etro.

    I love funky socks. My favorite brand in past years has been Cording's colorful striped socks, but I am definitely looking to expand this collection a lot.

    I also like unique accessories such as umbrellas and am considering even getting into bespoke umbrellas. My favorite piece right now is a maroon burberry umbrella i picked up with an 18K gold plated fox head on the handle.

    I joined this forum primarily to learn more about footwear and to expand my footwear horizons.

    I am interested in exploring other makers (RTW, MTO, & Bespoke) such as Gaziano & Girling, Edward Green, Alfred Sargent, John Lobb, and pretty much anyone else that makes finely crafted high quality shoes and/or shoes that are unique and interesting.

    Regards,
    Phil

    Im ruderr. I check out this site a lot to get answers to fashion questions. Most are already answered for me. I am in my early 30's and just started to wear suits for work. I mostly am trying to buy nice suits on ebay for cheap. Any leads or suggestions are most welcome. That's it.

    Hello,

    I'm Matt. I'm a 26-year old attorney and bass guitarist. My dad gave me a few of his suits a couple of years ago (he was a buyer for Bloomingdale's back in the day), and now that I've been wearing them regularly, I've become a little bit obsessed with menswear. While I still don't have the cash to do everything I want to do (who does?), I've been upgrading my clothing and accessories a lot lately. And that has brought me to the forum quite a bit as I get the answers to the questions I have.

    Looking forward to finding out about new brands and refining my style. Cheers!
