    I came from modern man myself. I remember one poster named Josh, who would talk about his arrow dress shirts.

    A refugee from the old GQ forum. I remember J., Steve, LA Guy, PStoller and a few others broke away from the fatherland to start this rebellious little Republic. I took up arms and followed.

    Not everyone is happy . . .
    Hey! Why didn't I get a mention in the article? Without me, there's no Styleforum. And Jeremy, one man's "fighting" is another man's "attempt to make a love connection." [​IMG]

    I found out this site from the Times article. I was lurking here for about month and decided to join the Sartorial Federation without realizing it's cult and now I can't get out!

    I suspect most of the members who joined during late September, Oct. and probably Nov. of 2004 found out about this site from the article.

    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.

    Where's the post and picture of the way he inserted the shoetrees?

    I remember one poster named Josh, who would talk about his arrow dress shirts.

    I remember one poster here whose name I forgot, who would talk about his pink Van Hausen dress shirts.

    FWIW, Krieger does make a clear aluminum watch case. It's called the Mysterium, I believe.

    I remember his polyester ties, and his wishing to appear more conservative; there was something about whether a right or left hair part was more conservative. I wonder if he is on the AAAC forum.

    Anoter ModernMan DP, though I lurked for some time it was ages until I naturalized. I nominate Josh's request for the definition of 'dressing left' and 'dressing right' as the best Josh post ever.

    I happened to be surfing the GQ forum back in September 2004 and saw a link to this web site. I came here and all I heard about was the "Times article" responsible for the influx of new members. Until today I had never actually even read it [​IMG]

    I completely forgot how I found this forum. It wasn't from any of the sources mentioned so far...

    I am a refugee from the Men's Health forums. I was seeking actual style content, which was sorely lacking after a while over there.

    I found the forum in January 03 courtesy of Steve B and The_Foxx. First I found Steve B's website which linked here, then I noticed that the The_Foxx had posted links to some Anderson & Sheppard tuxedo's I was selling, which caught my attention.
