    Greetings all,

    Systems Analyst in northern NJ here, just found this site yesterday while searching for information on my first real suit since entering the working world. I moved up here for a job, and have been separated from my wife during the process for about 5 months, with monthly visits back down south to Houston while she finishes up her working contract before moving up in the summer. She's finally able to make it up here for a visit next month for Memorial Day, so I'm on the hunt for something good to impress her and to look the part for a night in the city.

    Glad to be a part, I'll keep lurking for a long time to come, I'm sure.

    Hi there, everyone. I've been lurking around here and a few other fashion/clothing sites on and off over the past couple of years and figured I'd go ahead and jump in here as I've really started to take the plunge into expanding my style. Thanks for all the useful info and tips and write-ups over the years.

    Hey Everyone.

    I stumbled on these forums while looking for info on shoes and suits. I've spent most of my life as a uni bum and most of my wardrobe consists of slacks and t-shirts. But I'm a big boy now with a degree and job and everything so i guess I have to start looking the part.

    Jack sans has just joined; I like anonymous workwear like the products old town and nigel cabourn are producing: they go well with my business as a designer/vintage letterpress printer. Am looking forward to being introduced to more clothing of that ilk by you dapper gentlemen.

    Hi all,
    Yet another lurker who decided to join. I'm in my early 50's and trying to look like less of a slob. I'm self-employed and work out of my house, so I have very little reason to dress in more than t-shirts and jeans. I'm a big fan of thrift stores, there are some incredible deals to be had - scored a great pair of Doc Martens that I still wear. I'm also a big music fan (managed a small indie record store for five years), audio gear aficionado, coffee freak and book lover. Married to a very a very patient woman for nearly 20 years and have three great kids.

    Greetings gents,

    I'm fonzie. I'm from the U.S. and I just recently joined styleforum. I've been browsing many posts as of late because I'm trying to get into more tailored clothing. I just bought a charcoal grey suit that is being altered at the moment. I'm also going to be ordering some dress shirts from moderntailor and other online mtm stores that are at the right price point (just found out about itailor and it looks good too).

    I've always been into fashion. I like to stand out from the crowd when I go out and not look like every other guy wearing their artificially faded jeans and over-sized black baggy dress shirts that always seem to be untucked when they'd look best tucked in. Though I do appreciate their purpose in the world, and that is to make all us finer dressed gents look even spiffier by comparison. ;)

    Wish I'd found these forums years ago, I'd have an even better wardrobe...but I'd likely be broke so its probably for the best that I just joined in on the fun.

    Hello everybody,
    I'm a University student, male and have been into fashion from a young age. Right now I do a simple visual-kei street style. I like brands like Julius, Rick Owens, and Gareth Pugh. I also like a variety of Japanese brands. I probably need to start buying new clothes because I'm getting bigger in size.

    Hi all. Name is Sam. Work in IT security in the Albany area, relatively new to dressing in a professional setting. New to dressing 'well' in general. Expanding my wardrobe outside of the Brooks and Vineyard Vines clothing made for my former Alma Mater. I will admit I am a sucker for nice shoes and shirts, still looking for a few nice jackets.

    Hi all,

    I'm a design student with a natural interest in men's fashion. I'm not a fashionista or anything, but I like to look the part and make the effort to not look like a tramp! Look forward to speaking with y'all.

    Regards,

    Ant

    Alboo is the name most people know me and do some business under. I don't think I've ever met face to face anyone that knows more about traditional hardy boots and shoes than myself. Using traditional in the sense of Alden, BB - aldens, peal mostly by C&J I think, C&J, Edward Green. I know there are plenty on this forum that make my knowledge look like nothing. My clothing might lean a little more to UK 1940's, but lots of Trad. Never continental fashion clothing or footwear. Oh, I am from Oklahoma and grew up around ranches and polo; thus there are a lot of custom made cowboy boots and hats mixed in with the above. Equine related apparel is in the above styles so I rarely look to far away from that.

    Thanks,

    alboo

    Hi, my name is Vay.

    I recently hit 30 and feeling great. But it's about time I learned how to dress like a man. That's why I've ended up here.

    Hey all, my name is Jose I'm close to hitting 20. I'm very into vintage clothing such as silks, baroques, prints, floral etc.
    Recently I requested help to find the brand of a shirt that caught my eye.
    Hope to stay for long!

    Thanks

    My name is Benjamin, I'm a long-time menswear nerd living in California. Follow a long list of menswear sites on the daily: four-pins, acl, highsnob, selectism, wearethemarket, etc etc.
    Trying to clear the low-tier crap out of my closet and replace it with more upper echelon brands. Would love to cop some Loro Piana or Isaia, my wish list basket on Mr Porter is v long. Have been meaning to create a profile on here for years and finally getting around to it now.
    Been studying and making shoes by hand for a few years and recently partnered with an attorney friend of mine to launch our own shoe brand. Currently in start-up mode, but attempting to find investors that actually care about menswear (in San Francisco it's hard to find anyone not interested in tech only) so if you know of anyone please send them our way. Thanks for having me on SF.

    Best

    Hi. I've been lurking for a while reading peoples' opinions on stuff for a while, and recently I've been looking for something chic to tote my latest slab of metal in. Happened on a marketplace post here for a Burberry briefcase. Now I'm torn between that and a Prada bag.

    Oh, and I'm the kinda guy that mostly wears cheap white t-shirts (with nice jeans, at least) with my jacket in the middle of the city during off-hours. I guess I'm just weird like that. Or in dire need of decent shirts.
