    Hello,
    I´m from Sweden. Interested in history, cars, not really a "fashionista" or connoiseur of classic style. However; beginning to develop a taste for classic style, materials and all that surrounds it.
    Vintage and new alike - as long as it is of good quality - hate when expensive brands fool consumers with lousy quality and just make profit of their brand/name.
    Favourite shoes: My Red Wing Beckmanns.
    Never been to the States but I´d love to go one day. Interested in both L.A and the NY but perhaps most the kind of America that you get a glimpse of in Lynch´s The Straight Story. The classic, decent and friendly...Wouldn´t mind traveling by car through Minnesota listening to "country roads" by John Denver...;D

    Glad to have found this place.

    Currently trying to take a bit more control of my life- losing weight, getting fit, and dressing that little bit more sharply.

    On first glance, this forum looks like it will be a great help!

    Cheers

    Hello all; finally got around to actually making an account (though I've been lurking for some time now). Happy to finally be part of the SF community, and I'm looking forward to meeting everyone in what seems to be a pretty awesome group.

    Hi everyone. Repping Baltimore here. Clothing is a terribly good way for me to waste money I should probably be saving, so I thought maybe I'd come here and dream about wasting even more.

    I've been lurking on this site for a week after being referred by a friend.

    I'm just starting my career as a lawyer at a large firm in Canada. The law firm that I start at this year is full of well dressed lawyers so I have a lot of ground to gain. I just started building my wardrobe and I have a lot to learn.

    Hi guys!

    I'm 21 years old and from Denmark, so please excuse me if my English isn't perfect.
    I've recently decided that it was about time that I started to dress better, so I started to read about mens fashion and style. I used to hate shopping clothes, but now I really enjoy it as I know what I want and more inportantly how it should fit. My wallet really hates my new interest though... I'm sure a lot of you can recognize that problem.[​IMG]

    Hello all,

    I'm a long time member of another forum and have joined here to expand my horizons a bit. I'm mid-thirties, happily married, and trying to make it as an academic. I'm a sucker for three piece suits, panama hats, and nearly everything made by Chipp.

    Pleased to meet you all.

    Hi, I'm JoeViturbo. I divide my time between where I have to be: College Station, Texas; and where I'd love to be: Higgins Lake, Michigan. Right now I'm heading to the latter so I'm happy. I'm 31 and just had surgery for a condition I was born with so I'm trying to get healthy. I thought that it would be a great time to focus on looking good too.

    I've read websites with fashion tips for years and continue to do things they advise against. I've got a rather fashion-challenged body composition and proportions that make it difficult to buy off the rack without looking slovenly. But I try my best.

    Hi all,

    I'm a 49 years old male living down under in Auckland, New Zealand. I also spend part of each year in South East Asia, which has been my second home for the past 30 years.

    I confess that in recent decades (aka "the internet era") I strayed far from my younger self's preferred bespoke sartorial path. However, I've recently rediscovered my youthful passion again for all things bespoke. I'm not talking high-end Savile Row in Mayfair (I wish) either. Just good value mid-range custom tailors in Asia that were easily accessible and affordable for me then.

    In addition to my sartorial decline, the internet era had a negative impact on my health too. As (ahem) "middle age spread" increasingly colonised and took over my body, destroying my health and sartorial silhouette in the process. Alas, it was good bye English military cut suit/sports jackets... hello 1980s Hugo Boss sac cut. Great in 1989 -- but not a good look circa 1999-2009!

    Anyway, during those dark days for me both weight and health wise, it gradually became harder for me to take pride in my outward appearance as my overweight/obese condition slowly progressed. SF members struggling with weight and health issues will know what I'm talking about, I'm sure.

    Anyway, it's great to be out from under that dark cloud (i.e. I lost the excess weight and have kept it off for several years now) and once again I am taking a sartorial interest and pride in my clothing attire.

    Thanks for the inspiration Style Forum! I look forward to learning from the forum and sharing my own modest sartorial travellers tales with you all.

    Regards,
    BespokeKiwi

    A clothes and shoe lover with a bias to professional clothing. A few observations:

    - Brown is for elderly, not for young guys as the pictures here every time confirm.
    - Double breasted is for heavy hitters and lightweights should tread careful as it quickly becomescaricature or trying to hard.
    - Pocketsquares should be used tastefuly or not at all. It's optional, not a requirement as many people seem to think.

    Ryan here, a horribly unfashionable and mildly unkempt "gentleman" from Nova Scotia, Canada. Trying to glean some tips from the general population here, although being a bigger guy with 13-14 wide feet much of the content here escapes me [​IMG]

    Anyway, glad to be here!

    hey, I'm Nick, 19 years old from atl but I go to school in baltimore.

    denim addict, I've owned and heavily worn pairs from a variety of brands including dior, lvc and w+h.
    uhh my style's pretty basic, I like to keep it clean and minimalistic. I wear what I like and beat my clothes, esp denim and shoes, to death.
    favorite brands are probably w+h/rc, visvim and wtaps. I like the mix of classic, fairly simple styles (w+h/rc) with the more unique styles that japanese brands have to offer. but I try and appreciate just plain good style, and I'm always open to new things.
    I try and be as down-to-earth as possible, and I'm always up for a good conversation whether I know ya or not.
    been active on hypebeast for a while, but ya'll seem pretty cool so I'm tryin to expand my horizons a bit. hope I was right.

    looking forward to becoming a part of the styleforum fam, hope you guys'll have me.

    Hello All,

    My name is Jon and as my nickname goes, I gots no game. I stumbled onto this forum while looking for shoe brands that offer comfort and quality but at a reasonable price and was just in time for the 2013 AE tent sale (thanks guys!). For now, I'm just trying to find more info on quality shoe products and shoe care.

    Hello,

    Long time admirer of those with good fashions, but am finally in a position where I can flex my fashion muscle. I work in the marketing/sales industry so I have a real incentive to look good. I'm a fan of classic styles personally, but I typically rock business casual style, with a nice dress shirt and some jeans/dress shoes.

    Although, this summer I've expanded more into boat shoes, khaki or light jeans and polo's. A my girlfriend flatteringly described me, I look like a poor version of the richkidsofinstagram (which she meant as a compliment!).

    Young guy, slim build and looking to expand my knowledge of the classic style of dressing.

    Looking forward to learning more.

    Cheers,

    Shane
