    Hi all,
    New member here, but I've been exploring the forum for over a year by now. I'm living in Atlanta and my recent visits to Sid's has motivated me to get serious about clothing/dress in general. Specifically, I think I've purchased a pair of Alden's that are a half size too big and I need to make a trade. Looking forward to getting to know the community better.

    Thank you Stiva for that thoughtful post. I'm in my early 40's and, having re-booted my career, I have decided to similarly re-boot my wardrobe. I work in the dress-casual world of Bay Area tech companies. Although one could easily wear jeans and puerile T-shirts every day, I'm looking forward to investing in my clothes, so that they reflect the enthusiasm I have for my work.

    I've got some reading to do, but thanks again for an insightful post.

    Hi everyone!

    I've joined this forum for a number of reasons; love fashion (which helps), got style (although my wife seems to think i could do with picking up more?!), and own a clothes shop! I only stock products for little men (2 - 16yrs) and hope to get some inspiration from all you lovely fashion-lovers as well as focus on men's style for a while; spent so much time styling out little kids i may have forgotten about myself... (but dont let the wife know she's right!)

    Glad to be here and look forward to chatting to everyone... especially as most of you seem to be from the good US-of-A while i'm sat in the (inevitably) rainy UK!

    Richard

    Hi,
    I'm RR215 and currently reside on the east coast of the USA. I've been lurking on this site for a few months now and decided to join today. I have a very extensive clothes collection that is definitely getting out of hand and the same can be said for my shoes. I've really enjoyed the postings on here from like-minded individuals as well as some with different points of view. Looking forward to being educated about obscure designers and being updated about some of my current favorites. Regards.

    Greetings,

    I'm another lurk who's jumping into the fire. I studied film production and I work as an editor, as well as motion graphics and compression (the Indians, Chinese and Pakistanis took over graphic and web design, which is where I would have stayed otherwise). I'm 27, an Anglophile, ex-IDF and living in southern California. I like reading, playing music, building, bouldering, traveling, style, girls, etc. I can speak English*, Hebrew, Spanish and French (*native). I understand Western music theory and the physics of music to a comfortable level. I also know a few programming languages and I'm a *nix enthusiast.

    Recently, I've been to Turkey, the Netherlands, China and Japan. Asia is fantastic. The people in the larger cities, like Shanghai (Paris of the East) were wonderfully dressed and mannered. They do it much better than we, especially we who live in the US. Everyone's clothing fit properly and their taste was simple, functional (it was freezing) and stylish. They are also very healthy people, without resorting to all sorts of new-age diets that are all the rage here. We like to think that the Chinese aren't worthy of producing anything but Happy Meal toys, but they do excellent work. Sometimes their diligence matches the Germans. Previously English-made loudspeakers, Celestion, are now produced in their quality-controlled factory in China and tone connoisseurs have found nothing to complain about. There are mainly two types of business: those that are now producing in China, and those that are not going to be doing business much longer. I saw a girl on the plane reading a book entitled, If China Ruled the World. It won't be long now.

    My favorite article of clothing is a Schott Perfecto 118, which I've broken in myself. I think every man should have gone through this trial at some point in their life, like military service; you know, rites of passage. I like fancy dress too. I'm very minimal and I think that's what works best. I like simple, elegant cap-toe shoes (I have the Loake Rothschild), English collars, slim black suits with matching slim black ties (Tarantino's suit of armor for all of his greatest characters) and mean sunglasses; I have long ago graduated from Wayfarer sunglasses to all-black Aviators in 55mm, which are the perfect size for me (I think most people wear ones that are much too large and with hideous gold frames that cheapen the entire look). I also like slim/straight (not skinny), rigid dark jeans, buffalo plaid and Dr. Martens 8-eyes, which I've been collecting English-made 8-eyes since I was about 16.

    To say the least, I don't admire new BMWs and most of the time I despise the drivers (balding, passive-aggressive, low-class). I prefer classics. A Porsche, a Merc, Jag, or a Rolls Royce like David Hemmings drove in that fantastic film by Michaelangelo Antonioni, Blow Up (see it - he's a true style icon). I can also give the film, Withnail and I, my highest recommendation. Tell me what you think.

    This is exciting.

    Cheers

    Elegance and style is not an option for me.......it's a must. Whether I'm in the office, traveling on a plane for business or simply going to the grocery store - appearance is always on point. A few things I cannot live without: pocket squares, fine clothes and European shoes (approximately over 100 pairs). I am 100% infatuated and a collector of GUCCI, especially in shoes.

    Hey everyone, I'm LickSquid and I'm from Vancouver. I'm graduating from high school and I heard about StyleForum from Reddit. I have lurked the thrifting thread for the past three months and I hope to continually learn about dress and style.
