    I'm Michael, do Tropical Medicine and wear RL, Armani, Boss, DuChamp London, Paul Smith, a bit of Dior Homme and avoid mentioning French labels such as La Coste etc...

    I style on antiquated British style mens clothing and am very fond of the US interpretations through RL and Tommy Hilfiger.

    I've a range of weighted wool jackets/pants from heavy herringbone (winter tweeds), medium plaids (spring/autumn tweed) and modern light weight suits (Italian [Armani, Boss, RL], and Savile Row). Casual gear is mostly DuChamp and Paul Smith. Good neck tie, bow tie and pocket square collections and love the US interest in bow ties. Recently discovered Brooks Brothers and top-end stuff from Jos A Bank, via shopping at airports.

    Avoid (but often admire) contemporary designers through McQueen and recently Christopher Kane.

    My family has a heritage in clothing, hence my interest (Macclesfield silks, Lancashire cotton) and surname derives from immigrant workers in the Yorkshire wool industry.

    In summary the connecting themes are very British with Italian flair.

    You can call me Jay. I'm here to get some inspiration about mens style. My style interests are mostly geared towards leather. I'm a huge fan of handmade leather products.

    Hello I'm Steve and from the upper Midwest (Wisconsin). I'm an engineer by trade and can even spell it :). I found the forum by chance while searching for advise on blazers for work wear. I love to wear suits even though it's not a requirement at work, we are "business casual" and I really think people should reconsider the meaning of those words! Some take it to mean most anything. I own several special suits that are handmade (for someone other than me) that I have had tailored to fit me, two of them are Denny Crane screen worn suits from Boston Legal. I am the same chest size as William Shatner and found out after my first purchase that with some tailoring I could actually wear the suits (waist taken in, sleeves let out, pants let down, coat waist taken in). I like to look good and feel good while wearing nice clothes. I'm also a part time musician, prop builder, and collector of SciFy memorabilia. Have two grown children and one in HS. I look forward to learning much more about clothing, styles, and how to buy on a budget.

    Hi, I'm Chris. I've stalked the forums for awhile and finally decided to join. I work for a company most of you probably aren't fans of, but I still take ideas and try to use what I've got. Hope you won't be tough on me based on my employer but if you do, I've got thick skin "I guarantee it."

    Hello my dears,
    Sockpoet is here!
    I live in a home;
    I live on my phone.
    I dress for success;
    I dress in distress.
    I own many shoes.
    I follow the rules.
    I work for the man.
    I work on my tan.
    I'm quite declassé,
    But never blasé.
    I hope you enjoy
    My time with you boys.

    Hi All. Ramon Here. I've been a voyeur for quite some time but finally decided to take the plunge and get involved. I'm based in Sydney so whilst I love classical style I also need clothing that works in our climate. I also run a small business from home making suits and shirts :)

    Hello! My name's Nate. I'm a poor student right now (MBA - Finance). I enjoy good beer, good food, speak some German, and love cost accounting. I have terrible taste in clothes. My typical uniform is cargo shorts and t-shirts, but my wife is excited that I'll have to start dressing like an adult soon. I was a competitive collegiate bicyclist about 6 years and 40lbs ago (mostly mountain biking). I was also a bicycle mechanic, and do all my own auto repair (part hobby, part me being a tightwad).

    Hey all. Been lurking since the summer, figured I'll make an account. Pretty much a broke college kid, but still like to dress well. I typically stick with staple brands that have good quality for a low price point i.e. uniqlo, ll bean, jcrew factory, etc. I'm also active and into fitness, will probably be stalking the random excercise thoughts thread as well. I enjoy almost any type of music, my favorites being indie and hip-hop. But I guess that's enough about myself for now.
