    My name is Pipebomb. I'm 35 and work as a chiropractor. It's my 3rd career. I have no wife and no kids. Currently I'm recovering from being a shithead. I drank and pissed away most of my life and have sought out the process of rebuilding myself in every conceivable manner about a year ago.

    I have no money. I have really shitty clothes, my car is a piece of shit and my apartment is a piece of shit. This is mostly due to bad decisions.

    I'm here because I don't know the first thing about fashion or about how to put a wardrobe together. Hopefully, there's a beginner's thread/Back to basics thread around here somewhere because I need all the help I can get.

    I know my intro sounds depressing, but if you saw where I was a year ago, you'd swear I was on top of the world.

    Hello all. I'm a 22 year old Sysadmin / Pentester and figured that I have been lurking for long enough I might as well join. Last year I started a personal transformation around March. I was about 90lbs heavier than I was for most of highschool and decided that had to change before a family reunion in July of that year. I was able to lose 60 lbs by that time and was feeling fantastic. About a month later I ended my relationship with my then girlfriend and one night took a long hard look in the mirror and realized that it was time to stop wearing baggy buttondowns untucked over jeans and start really putting some effort into the way I look. Well about 6 months later and I have to say I am happy with how things are transforming (a lot of that has been through tips and fit guides from here and reddit's Male fashion advice subreddit).

    Hi everyone. I'm Chris from Phoenix, AZ. 31 yr old veterinarian, specializing in neurosurgery/neurology. I've decided to join here to step up my game a bit. Most of us veterinarians are poor dressers. Mainly for a combination of reasons...low salaries and the fact that we get pet hair, saliva, and all other bodily fluids on us. Add to that, ties just get in the way and smack our patients in the face when we do exams (that's why I do a tie clip, or am now trying to venture in the bow-tie arena).

    Mainly at work, i'm a black or khaki slacks, button down long sleeve shirt, doing more french cuffs (which most of my clients say "WOW! You're wearing cuff links to work!"), spread collar, and standard tie.

    I want to be bolder and more adventurous and I hope I can ask some stupid questions along the way that everyone says "why the hell did you do that?" No better way to learn than to try and fail. Thanks in advance for all your advice and suggestions.

    Hi Guys, first thing you'll need to know is I'm a girl and so far it seems I'm in the minority. Not easily put off by that and have belonged to many groups where I have been dubbed an honorary bloke. I take that as a compliment.
    My business produces high-end, hand made English leather belts and I love my job.

    Hey all, I'm new to this forum and I guess style in general. I'm looking for tips and pointers.

    I wore the same pair of boots every day for years, old hand me downs for clothes, and everything else as I was a poor college student more interested in playing music and getting laid than looking good. Now that I have a reasonably well paying job, I bought myself a new pair of boots. I forgot how nice it was to wear new shoes. I now own over a dozen pairs ofshoes and some really nice clothes. I like thrift shopping and I sometimes get free clothes from my job (aka hand me downs from millionaires and billionaires) that are far nicer than anything I could actually afford. Notable things include several H Huntsmen And Sons suits and an overcoat, brand new frye dress boots, etc etc

    Hello gents,

    Am a 24 years old boy from Left Bank Paris. Graduated back in June and have been working at auctions since.
    Gradually became aware of and acquainted with matters of style. Entered the realm of elegance after a couple years of over-the-top excentricity. Now focusing on understated details and items, well-sourced products and harmonious combinations. Still many many things to excitingly learn.
    Am fond of grenadine ties, linen handkerchiefs, flannel and sleek British shoes.
    Also like hazel/brown blond girls, literature, witty talks and spiffy places.

    Best
