    Hi, all,

    I'm Lunar. I'm 19 and, for most of my life, have been interested in fashion but have in actuality worn nothing but band T-shirts. Whenever a formal occasion comes up I get a suit from John Lewis's. I've come here hoping to get some advice to change all that. I have very little money (long-term unemployed due to illness), so my priorities are probably all wrong in wanting to get some decent pieces, but I really do need to, I feel. I've been the badly-dressed one for too long.

    Hey everyone,

    I'm in my 30s and am most interested in this site for formal wear considerations. I've been lurking for about a month and decided I might as well sign up and post. I'm in SF but travel to the Northeast fairly regularly and head to LA for work every now and again, thus the handle.

    At this point I have several OTR suits by I have not been happy with the cut or fit, but now that I can afford it I am going to explore the MTM space in SF (or perhaps in LA or the Northeast when I'm in either of those locations).

    Evening Gents,

    Long, long time lurker finally taking the plunge and signing up.

    I'd estimate the Classic Menswear, Casual style thread has been the most helpful resource I've ever come across for improving my appearance. My interest in this clothing nonsense started with a passionate dislike of denim and has brought me to a reasonably well curated wardrobe of chinos, corduroys, ocbds, sweaters and field jackets.

    Hobbies and interests include music, reading and spending an inordinate amount of money on suede shoes and cashmere knitwear.

    Cheers,
    Lúcido.

    Long-time lurker, finally ready to start talking back. I wear chinos and button-downs most days of the week, but I do what I call Business Casual Fridays where I wear dress pants, a dress shirt, dress shoes, and a tie- mostly because I want a reason to wear those things. I know some of you dress nicer than that every day of the week but it's hard out here on the west coast. I'll probably be spending most of my time in the thrift store thread.

    I emailed John Elliott's support if I there's anyway I can exchange my LARGE hoodie for a MEDIUM even though I bought it from a stockist. Unfortunately they can't, though she recommended me to post it on styleforum's JE's Official Thread. Hopefully my hoodie will find a new home! =D

    Thank you!

    Hi, my name is Rishabh. I am an Intellectual Property Rights Lawyer. I have been a long time lurker of styleforum and i have finally managed to acquire an account. Its a pleasure to be here. I have always been passionate about classic menswear and find that its deeply rooted within me. Even though my profession calls for being extremely conservative in dressing, i tend to experiment alot with colour, pattern and texture for an exaggerated yet understated and classic look. I do enjoy reading, understanding and experiencing technicals of menswear products as and when i find the time. Hobbies and interest include listening to jazz; watching movies; playing playstation games, talking about classic menswear and elegance in general. Hoping to learn and contribute to this amazing forum.

    I'm Smudger. A self employed designer having worked mainly in transport design. Previous jobs include the interior for the Virgin Galactic spaceship, but my focus is now producing animated visions of the future for some well known brands. My only crossover into the world of clothes would be designing sports shoes. But the central passion that brought me here would be British craft. I generally just wear old Levis and Norwegian jumpers but am very particular about my british handmade shirts and shoes. I live just down the road from Northampton which has driven my passion for shoes. I love my Crocketts and Tim Littles but am fanatical about all thing Trickers. I have more than any one man needs, but that does not stop me seeking more. I have browsed this site for a year or two but now it is time to take an active part.

    Hello,

    I appreciate clothing and beautifully crafted and designed things in general, like woodworking and landscaping.

    For the past few years, I have been working with my business casual style for work. I am very skinny (5'11 and 135 pounds), and I've struggled with clothes that are too big. I've found J crew extra small slim casual shirts seem to work, except I need to wear them using magnetuck (fantastic product for keeping shirts tucked https://magnetuck.com) or they would never stay tucked.

    I'm frequently complimented on the colors and patterns I choose for clothes. I generally feel comfortable with this, but I'm not good with fit. I would like to submit photos and hopefully forum members will be willing to share advice on the fit.

    I'm looking forward to participating.

    Glad to be here. Recently moved to Australia, found this forum from google. Generally, business casual but suits and ties are pretty common. Interested in men's fashion and shoes. I've done a bit of leather working as a family business and have a casual interest in building men's dress shoes. Looking forward to browsing the forum.

    I'm Elle

    I kick back in Perth, Western Australia.
    I cant say i'm not interested in the world of men's fashion, hence the reason my ex partner had so many expesive items of clothing in our cupboard new and unworn for so long
    I can say they are a total waste of space and bad reminder to me now days- if you guys out there 'get my drift'
    So get em while they're hot boys- i'm sure any one of you could make them look ten time that :)

    No, but please take a look - all items are NWOT (New Without Tags) unless otherwise stated, even still they'd have only been worn once and then drycleaned.

    Thanks - I hope I can make at least one persons day with what i have to offer :)


    Much Love
