    It has been 2 years since New York Times did a profile on SF and AAAC and that's how I found out about this forum. How quaint to look back at the article. So how many of you found out about SF through the NYT article? Back then we only had 1,100 members, now almost 6,000.

    Yep, I read it a couple months ago for the first time... very cool to see the progression this forum has undergone (or regression in some cases).

    I knew about AAAC before SF and before the article. I found both SFs while looking for jeans info. So, Google deserves the credit here.

    I found this site through a sort of confluence of searching for where a suit of mine was from, and that article. Funny stuff...lemme see if I can go find my first post...

    That is how I found out about both forums. I have learned a lot since I have joined and am happy I have. However, my wallet has thinned out because I have become addicted to ties.

    Original members came from 2 distinct sources: the GQ forum and the Modern Man forum.

    I remember the article and the surge of people following it. I was a member for a while before the article came out, I found out about the site from a link on about.com.

    Count me as a refugee from Modern Man. Never imagined I'd be trading clear metal collar stays for Hildeetch, Dunheel, Thomas Pink kites and beer gardens.

    I came over from the GQ Forum horror show. I lurked for awhile. I don't think I actually started posting until the article came out.

    I came from Modern Man as well. Clear metal collar stays ... perhaps the greatest post of all time.

    It's probably been re-posted before, but here's the original in all its glory. http://www.modernman.com/cgi-bin/for...D3&archive=yes

    That's a riot. [​IMG]

    I'm waiting for Borrelli to start offering handmade collar stays in horn.
