    Hello to all. I lurked on here for a bit trying to find the right pair of double monks. This forum introduced me to AE, which has become my favorite affordable non-sneaker shoe manufacturer. Otherwise I'm a coffee and wine snob. Web developer by day, snowboarder by winter and all year round denim head. Heres to spending hard earned money on overpriced gear!

    Hello! I'm Robert. When I'm not working to support my expensive hobbies, I play and collect guitar gear, rock climb, travel, enjoy good coffee and great denim.

    I'm a 28 year old politico and soon-to-be law student. I live in Denver, have 2 dogs and a girlfriend of 7 years. I've always been a street wear kind of guy (Crooks & Castles, Play Cloths etc). [​IMG] I've always been able to dress well when the situation arose but now I need to start dressing for my age and profession. I've been lurking for awhile and completing my due diligence but if there are any must reads besides the standards, please point them out to a noob. I appreciate the sense of humor around here and am looking forward to participating. Thanks guys, for building this great forum.

    Hi, I'm Andrew. I found the site while searching for information about Tom Cruise's suit in Collateral, and I ended up in a great thread that was just what I was looking for (http://www.styleforum.net/t/7771/tom-cruise-collateral-suit). I like what you're doing here.

    I saw the thread on thrift/value purchases and was going to post these pics there, but the introduction thread seemed more appropriate.

    My favorite suit belonged to my Dad until he gave it to me when I was in high school, about 16 years ago. It's a Brooks Brothers Golden Fleece 3-piece in charcoal, with faint gray pinstripes. It's from the 1970s (!). Click for giant size.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The suit looks and feels amazing, and now that I think about it I've worn it occasionally through high school, college, law school, law practice, and up through the present day. I wear it more now because I finally had it tailored properly a couple of years ago and the difference in feel was dramatic.

    The labels are all gone from falling off without being replaced except for a small, partially visible label sewn into one of the pockets from the Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America. They merged with another union under a different name in 1976, and so that is the youngest the suit could possibly be. I can probably get an exact date from the series code if I unsew the pocket lining, but other than knowing it's from before I was born I don't really need to know. I love it, and while there are a couple of damaged areas that were repaired at varying levels of quality, I don't care because it means a lot to me :)

    Anyway, it's great to be here. I'm a fan of Brooks Brothers and Alden, otherwise I don't know much about clothes.

    Hi I'm Cpt Stowe
    I picked that nickname up senior year of undergrad from some freshmen as their RA and it stuck.

    I'm married (6 months next week) to my college sweetheart.

    As for style I prefer Clarks (DB's Desert Legends and Desert Khans 80% of the days)
    Jeans are custom Imogene and Willie's, Levis, and even though I know some hate them Unbranded.
    Shirts are thrifted or sale racks.

    I'm way into outwear and looking to thin my herd soon.

    I'm also into some EDC stuff.

    Outside of menswear I'm into hiking, fly fishing, and a bit of a lot outdoor pursuits.

    I've read a bunch of threads on here and finally decided to join.

    Cheers

    Hello All, I'm a 46 year old professional visual artist, musician, and filmmaker from North Alabama, USA. I guess you might call me a man of classic style. As they say, "Trends come and go, but style is forever."
    I'm a fan and collector of all things Golden Age (1930s/40s/50s): automobiles, architecture, men's clothing and accouterments, film, music. militaria, etc. As a hobby and side-income I buy and sell vintage ties, clothing, musical instruments, and other unique vintage items on eBay and elsewhere.

    Looking forward to seeing what this forum has to offer.

    Hi, I'm Jim. Joined the forum because I'm in the first throes of my next obsession (shoes!) and liked a thread on Meermin MTOs here. (My linea maestros arrive tomorrow!) style wise I'm mostly jeans (Ironheart and triple works) and T's with overshirts and have a financially unhealthy obsession with Swiss watches. I'll probably spend too much time on here but hey, it beats Facebook!
