    Joining in ... you can call me kirker. I'm a law student who was sartorially ruined at a young age by the fact that my father had a closet full of Brionis and various Savile Row bespoke suits. Nowadays I spent undue amounts of time scouring stores (mostly online ones) for the best bargains on fine menswear across the board.

    Suitwise, I have four Brionis, an Isaia and a "cheap" Zegna. You can probably guess my favorites. I had a Kiton for a while, but was offered too good a deal on it to pass up. Although law is a generally somber field, I try to push the envelope at least a bit with interesting shirt & tie combos under the suits (which are all variations of dark blue and charcoat, including chalk stripes and a glen plaid).

    I wear cap-toe Ferragamos (NOT Studios) and almost nothing else, at least for dress shoes. For casual wear, I do a high-low mix: I'll pair a Helmut Lang shirt and black Varvatos lace-up boots with a pair of Uniqlo jeans I got on sale for twenty bucks. I'm particularly partial to Prada Sport in terms of casual shoes.

    I look forward to soliciting feedback on my sartorial choices in the coming months and years. I have to start wearing a suit to work daily for the first time ever in two weeks, once my post-1L internship begins. (Note that I'm 32, a relative latecomer to law school, and spent close to a decade in the dot-com world wearing decidedly more casual wear.)

    Hello to all those that have introduced themselves above as well as to those yet to make their appearance.

    Interests: Grenson boots, Wings & Horns clothes, and the confident reassurance that comes with wearing it well.

    Very excited about the Viberg sample sale. I live in Victoria, BC! Wonder if I can go in and pick up whatever I may be lucky enough to purchase?

    Mops is German for pug. Yes, I'm German. No, I'm not a pug.

    Hello all, the name's Nick from Somerset, UK, just joined today, not too sure why, but it seemed like a good idea at the time.

    Hello everyone, I have been lurking here for a while now. And it has been my go to for any questions that I have had. Figures it was about time I made an account. Mainly to purchase things that seem to be much more readily available here than on eBay.

    Hi everyone, I'm Ben and I finally decided to join SF after lurking for close to a year. At 23 my personal style is definitely still developing; that said I really like J.Crew due to their reasonable prices and their college discount! Most of the clothes that are discussed are way out of my price range, but j. Crew and Club Monaco have plenty of sales! Haha.

    Hi I'm Danny - just joined today - I have lived in Spain for the past 10 years with my family, who are now grown-up.

    I have always enjoyed buying quality classic clothing (especially before I started a family!) - look forward to sharing experiences and sprucing up my wardrobe.

    Hi everyone,

    I'm Terence, just joined the forum a few days ago after a bit of lurking the forums for a bit. As a teenager/young adult, I was more into streetwear and all that, but my style has evolved a bit more into the menswear category, partially due to the #menswear phenomenon, though it is still evolving. Hoping to contribute and gain some insight everyone in this forum.

    Hey all -

    I'm Jay, joined in order to acquire some style. I'm a bit of a carhart, logging boot, t-shirt and beat-up ball cap guy. Going through a physical transformation (fat loss) and seeking to upgrade the wardrobe once I get to my goal of single digit bodyfat.

    Going to be lurking for the time being, until I get a better grasp of the basics.

    Thanks all,
    Jay

    Hey everyone, my name is Dustin and I'm graduating college and getting ready for law school this fall. I come from a fashion oriented family and appreciate quality menswear. I've had a number of suits in the past for work and events but my most recent purchase was an RLBL suit. Will look forward to talking with you all soon.

    Greetings All,

    I can't recall how I stumbled upon this place, but I've enjoyed the wealth of information contained herein for the past few months. Figured I would make things official.

    Hi all,

    I am a simple man, I enjoy nice things like shoes, clothing and obviously also bikes. I have a fondness for classical (English and Italian) clothing and anything carbon associated with bikes.

    I try to do classical style with a bit of detail that might not be classical, the occasional goyser stitch, the random orange sock, the little detail that gives the classical a twist but not in an Paul Smith kind of way.

    I have a fondness for tweed, English country shoes, flannel and for the summer Italian slipons and cotton pants. If only I had the budget to go all in...

    I work in a non formal environment so I do a lot of nice shoes and non formal clothing, I’m not sure if I’m lucky or not to get away with whole cut shoes and jeans without colleagues reacting but I guess it has its upsides to work mainly with people who has little understanding of what they see in terms of having a style of your own.

    On the bike I’m not classical but all in on Italian clothing :)

    Ta da
