1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Hi SFers, I'm Matt and am joining in order to bolster my knowledge about where to buy suits and dress shirts and what to look for in construction quality. I'm in the process of transitioning my wardrobe from grad-school casual to NYC business casual, and I've found the opinions of members on the forum to be tremendously valuable as I begin the journey. Looking forward to a long tenure on SF!

    Hello all, I'm Dave, a style newbie looking to broaden my horizons as I head off to college this fall. I'm mostly interested in what most would consider casual attire, as I'm not attending a Southern school and don't desire to look too out of place. Looking forward to finding advice pertaining to smart shopping (college-budget friendly) and sprucing up everyday outfits.

    Hello stylemen&women,

    I'm 33rd, from the 3000.

    For those who know postcodes, it's Melbourne, Australia.

    Don't be afraid to ask if Kangaroos pounce innocent bystanders and if Koalas smoke pot.

    (They do. I can answer many more questions and I appreciate it if y'all would answer mine)

    Hey folks;
    I'm an Australian resident, old enough to have seen styles come and go, then come back again.
    I appreciate strong design and quality workmanship, especially shoes and suits.
    ps. And drop bears and punchy kangaroos do exist!

    Hi

    I found this site by googling again and again what the deal with brown shoes and navy suit is

    I still am not sure what the right answer is and bought black shoes instead

    best,

    Hi All,

    I'm Erranttraveler and I just moved to Hong Kong and decided to take the plunge and join up now that I'm in a city where I feel I can afford to delve into the world of custom tailored clothing. This site has been an invaluable resource, and I look forward to taking part in the discussions here.

    I'm grubi, a 39-year-old IT guy in Tallahassee, FL. I have two kids, three cats, and one wife. I got into dressing like a grownup about three years ago and have gone through the major stages: over-enthusiastic peacocking, frustrated size issues, readjusting, losing weight, and finally, getting better.

    I work in environment in which t-shirts and shorts are acceptable work attire, but I have found myself preferring to wear button-up shirts (big fan of OCBDs), corduroys/chinos/jeans, and nice casual shoes (bucks, chucks, and brogues). I have found the value of owning multiple watches (it's more jewelry than timepiece), found myself getting more into shoes, and I've always been a hat guy. My wife and I have recently lost a lot of weight (ask me how someday) and we had to buy whole new wardrobes. Our combined experience and tastes (and her Jedi-like penchant for finding a bargain) find us in the planning stages for our own style-and-shopping consultation business, hoping to help people look great.

    I hope to learn a lot here, get some great ideas (inspiration!), and hopefully make some friends. When it comes to style, I have my loyalties and preferences, but I love a good discussion. Thanks.

    Hi,

    Have been lurking on here for quite a while and decided to become a member and contribute.

    I am a US expat professional living in Bangkok, Thailand for the last 22 years. Love clothes and but put on a lot of weight living the "easy life" in Thailand. Down 120 pounds and now can wear off the rack clothes again and out of control purchasing clothing. Favorite shopping is online and Sawgrass outlet. .

    Take care,

    hey all, jjmathews202 here.

    i'm a college student who has been pretty interested in dressing sharp ever since I can remember, but i've really turned up the heat a bit since i've been at college. I love a pair of slim jeans, and am just foraying into the world of suiting and dress clothes.


    Excited to be here!

    Just joined. Hi all :)

    Australian resident here, i live in Melbourne.
    I've undergone somewhat of a transformation since the end of March, with regards to the clothes i wear, i didn't completely change my direction, however the change i have made is for the better. Now i'm always on the lookout for new clothes to build up my current set of staples and what not. Look forward to chatting with you all.

    Have just posted pictures in one of my threads showing my baste fitting, would be grateful for any feedback!

    Hey All,

    I'm Nick, 30, born and bred in Toronto (if my username didn't make it clear). I work in television journalism, which means I can't afford most of what's posted here. Mainly looking to steal some ideas and tips and get an idea of what to look out for in case I see anything mentioned on sale.

    Cheers.
