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,

    I'm Argentum, silver for the simple folk.

    Living in columbia, south carolina but plan on moving when I finish this degree up. I want to be a transportation and geotechnical engineer in a big city one day. To be honest I have no idea how to fashion. I want to be classy and confident, but most importantly humble. From lurking I'm legitimately blown away by the prices you guys are willing to pay for clothes, but I'm definitely willing to learn and how from you guys.

    Hi all,
    My name is Teg. I've been reading a lot of SF for the past year. Have gotten a lot of great advice & have used a lot of it towards my life in fashion. Decided to join the conversation.

    I'm launching an online retail startup in the Spring called .Bk. It's a contemporary casual button-down shirt brand based in Brooklyn. We release monthly, limited edition collections -- all held within a theme. Our first collection is called "The Start-Up CEO" and features eight unique casual shirts at a run of about 250 each. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts and opinions along the way!

    Hello from Chicago.

    By accident I found this website yesterday and I'm looking forward to being a contributing member, but I'll spend more time reading what others have to say. I'm here to learn. I became interested in clothes a few years ago and am more interested that ever. However, although I work in an organization with 2,500 employees, there are probably fewer than 30 guys who would know a good tie if they saw one. I'm interested in the conversation because no one I work with could care less. I'm a college professor. Some of my colleagues look like they are homeless. I wear a suit and tie to class every day as a show of respect for my students and to help them understand that how you look matters in the working world. I wear suits and ties or jeans and t-shirts, I have nothing in between. I've never worn a golf shirt. I enjoy shooting a camera and usually include photos with every post. So, here's where I hang my hat these days.

    Best, ralph

    I prefer a short board. I also have a regular board with soft wheels.

    Hi,
    My name is Michael, originally from Europe, constantly on the move, for the last 5 years working in SE Asia - no end in sight. I'm deliberately not more specific also as I don't think it matters and though I miss the homelands from time to time, I've rather become a world citizen (humbly, no false sense of grandeur), with the pros and cons (having f2f time with old friends and family is the hardest).
    I finally managed to join the SF with the kind help of a friend on here, an affiliate seller I had the pleasure to do business with. Thanks a lot again, Conrad!
    My respective request for help emails towards the admin ladies remained unheard but that's water under the bridge now.
    I have done a lot of lurking and reading on here for the last couple of months, especially in the WAYWRN thread, mostly with admiration and also some amusement. The amount I didn't know about "decent" clothing, tailoring and how to dress "properly" is staggering. Funny thing, despite this I'm probably still one of the best dressed people in my office space, the only one to wear a jacket for one, not that that's any laurels to rest upon. There is a lack of access to reasonably priced quality items in the country I live/work in. So my only choice is online shopping which I have started to do with great success. I couldn't believe what can be found on $bay or here (cost me a small fortune already).
    Why have I joined? So I can interact with members, ask for advise, have better access to affiliates.
    Happy Holidays,
    Michael

    Hi folks.

    Scandinavian signing in. I am here to see if I can get some hints on good clothing brands/factories/sellers in my region. I prefer clothes being made here, but can also buy imports of nearby countries if the ethics can be sustained. I believe when it comes to wearing clothes, people should be able to stand for the brands they are using. I am particulary interested in swedish and danish clothing, since I do not know those areas very well. Quality is of course essential, but I guess that goes for all of us. Norway has very little to offer clothing wise, and is very expensive, so I'm seeking the internet for advice.

    Feel free to message me or join in discussions I participate in (if any).

    Optopi here (read as opto-pie, not opt-opee).

    Just turned 27 not too long ago and realized that I need to dress better. I've been sick of wearing jeans, sneakers, and t-shirts and have been upgrading my wardrobe. I look forward to getting some tips from here!

    Hey everyone,

    My name is Alex. Currently college senior studying Finance and Economics and interning at Humana in their Treasury department.

    I went into college having no real style opinions but have quickly changed my tune. I am obsessed with thrifting and was really amazed by the Thrift Thread I found on the website. My only trick with that is that I'm 6' 3" and have the shoulders of gorilla so it can be difficult to find items that fit, haha.

    I look forward to learning more and more on here!

    Hi all,

    I am a 40 year old Southern California native. I am both a business professional in the skin care industry as well as a singer/songwriter/guitarist. So far, I am not married and don't have kids (subject to change at any time).

    I've been regularly snooping on Style Forum for the last few months and figured it was about time that I join. So far, it has been a great resource for me. I hope that, soon, I'll be able to contribute to this community as much as I take. For now, I'll probably just be asking questions, absorbing your insights and learning from all of your experience.

    Glad to be here!

    Whats up guys? My name is nick, I'm 25. I don't really have a fashion sense and I am trying to find my way through this whole thing haha. I'm really into streetwear, and I like runners mainly air max 90's, and any good shoe collabs, I love cologne. I have a rep code for ********* and plndr. Trying to get people to use it is a bitch, but I figured I would sign up for their rep team to try and get some free clothes... so if anyone wants to help a bro out message me and I'll give it to you. I look forward to seeing what this forum has to offer.
