    My name is Jeremy I'm 20 years old and live in Portland, OR. I have taken a real interest in dressing better over the last six months starting with my browsing of MFA. I don't have much money as I'm currently unemployed, but I love thrifting so it all works out. I tailor all my all clothes and am trying to teach myself to make my own clothes. I'm starting to try and resell some of the better stuff that I find thrifting that won't fit me. I wear mostly street style and preppy type stuff but with some definite outdoursy influence, I do live in the pacific NW. I'm still learning and making mistakes but It's all a learning experience and I enjoy the whole journey.

    Registered years ago, I read the forum on and off and have been lurking a bit recently. I felt the need to make a few posts recently so I thought I'll intro myself (possible for the second time)

    Hi -

    I'm a manager in Silicon Valley at a large internet company... I used to wear a suit every day while working in finance, now I'm in tech and don't have to dress but I'm still really interested in men's fashion and style. Generally, I'm more of a traditionalist - I like to stay away from trends and find clothes that will wear well for a long time. I also try to find that line between dressing well each day and sticking out in a workplace where lots of folks choose to wear t-shirts and cargo shorts.

    I tend to have a very hard time finding clothes that fit - I'm 6'4 and skinny, so most manufacturers don't make inseams and shirt sleeves long enough for me on a lot of their line. If I find shirts I really like, I will by an XL and have the tailor bring in the sides. Not much I can do about pants or jackets. Vintage stores are usually too frustrating for similar reasons.

    I'll probably be just an occasional lurker / poster around here. I'm keeping an eye on the threads in my emails.

    Tom

    Hi. My name is Alexey. I'm a lawyer. I prefer to dress in style casual, preppy. I do not like pompous brands like D&G, Gucci, etc. For the same money there are far more different brands. I prefer brands such as Stone Island, CP Company, Edwin, Evisu, Garbstore, Our Legacy,Ralph Lauren, Paul and Shark, Paul Smith. Shoes: Red Wing, Sperry, Paul Smith, etc.
    Clothing size depends on the brand. I wear L size top (jackets, sweaters), 32/34 waist size (jeans, pants), and 10 US (9 UK, 43 EUR, 280 JP) shoe size.

    I'm Jeff - born and raised in Chicago's South Side, I live in the city now. I saturate myself in menswear until the point that I can't do it any longer. I count Riggity Ralph Lauren and Tony Tanfani as style inspirations and enjoy shoes that have scoff-inducing prices. Always on the lookout for a good tailor, new shops, and classic pieces that withstand the abuse I put them through.

    Hi styleforumers -
    I have been an avid follower of the MC forum for about two years. I have found the bespoke shoe threads, waywrn, and the recent tailor critique thread very valuable. Joined up because I am at the point where I might be able to contribute to a few of the discussions.
    Thanks,
    McBindle

    Hi,

    I've been lurking SF for a while now, the S&D and the MC are both amazing and very informative. I'm also quite amazed at the BST section.

    I'm fresh out of college in my first job. I've always been interested in clothes, but since I've been getting paychecks on the regular, I've been more more serious about researching the topic.

    Big fan of:
    Margiela, Momotaro, Herringbone, Schneider, Ervell, Gitman Vintage, Kent Wang, GATs, CPs, Allen Edmonds, Tanner belts, JLC Reverso, Wings + Horns, Happy Socks, Leather Bombers, Thick as Thieves, Gaspar Gloves, and many others

    Right now, Streetwear and Denim applies to me most, since I often dress very casually and am still quite young. I hope to learn from and contribute to the discussions.

    Hi!
    Been lurking around for a while. I make cartoons for a living and travel to Japan on a yearly basis for fun and business. I casually enjoy looking at men's fashion and recently have grown an interest in rugged/workmen union type life styles.
    You can catch me always wearing denim no matter the occasion and a bag of some type (currently a Porter).
    Cheers!

    Hello I am Brian, new to this site and was referanced by a friend. He suggested I become a member to help better myself with the new styles, and to possibly get feed back on some good finds. I am a Minnesota native, and just landed a good job that allows me to wear nice clothing (suit, tie, ect) so you can imagine how excited i am to get out of construction. Thank you and hope to hear some good feed back.

    Hi, been interested in fashion for a bit now just fairly casually. I generally like to try and look reasonable when I go out. I'm from Australia currently still a student so on a pretty tight budget. I love bow ties and that sort of quirky vintage things which would probably explain my recent purchase of a blue top hat. I'm a fan of sports coats and jeans i'm not really particularly phased about the brand as long as it's well made, fits and looks good.

    Hey

    33 year old lawyer from Sweden looking for some nice deals but mostly inspiration and more knowledge about clothes.

    The range of good quality clothes, especially suits and and workwear, is quite limited in my area so I mostly shop online. I have recently developed a freaky interest in suits and right now I want to know everything...

    Hello everyone,

    I've visited this site every one and then for a while now mostly looking at the marketplace and reading certain threads. I decided to sign up because the marketplace and greatly improved since i 1st checked it out and there are very knowledgeable members here that can help me and others when ask a question.

    I'm from miami beach, Florida and it gets really hot here for me so i tend to wear very light clothing so not much in the style department =[

    Evening all,

    I've been acquainted with the forum for some time, and somewhat arbitrarily decided now would be a fine time to join. I rather enjoy being knowledgeable about those topics that interest me, and the body of knowledge (and knowledgeable bodies) here is a wonderful resource. Thank you all for that.

    Biographically, I'm an incredibly boring 20 something in the greater DC metro area who occasionally manages to look presentable.
