    Hello, I'm Matthew from the UK. I always thought a suit was a suit was a suit until I invested in a good one for my wedding. Good tailoring seems to be fractionally less addictive than cocaine.

    Hi, I'm a young Thriftshopper and living in Europe, loving the golden Era (1930's-1940's).

    My sartorial knowledge expands from basic levels to expert ones, almost offen consumer oriented.

    Since I doubt, that anyone is interested in reading this thread, I think, that I've said enough.

    Have a nice day.

    Hello everyone, I'm a mid-20s web designer, physicist, all-around problem solver with a PRL addiction and shallow pockets. Hope to have a great time around here.

    Name is Brian but go by BDaniel. My friend J Norman started a blog www.jnormanpost.com and will be opening up a clothing store in Buffalo, NY called J Norman. He is a huge fashionista and has traveled across the country to check out the latest styles which he plans on incorporating with J Norman. Please check the site out and look for sales to begin soon.

    Look forward to seeing what other people suggest in regards to clothing styles.

    My name is Justin and I'm a new member although I've been lurking for quite sometime. I have gotten more into style over the years after years of frustrations with off the rack suits. As a young executive my wardrobe is ever expanding with a focus on quality rather than quantity.

    Happy to be here...

    Hello: Borbor here

    Based in Toronto, Canada. Been lurking for a while, and fortunate enough to work in the fashion side of the business so I can dress on both sides of the coin. I do prefer to dress sharply on a day to day basis.

    Got a huge interest in shoe, 7 pairs of golf shoes alone [​IMG] GF and I constantly fight for shoe rack space :)

    Cheers

    Hi,
    I'm a student based in Sydney, Australia. Honestly, knew very little about style until a month or two ago, when I started lurking here. Nice to be here [​IMG]

    Hello,

    I'm an attorney living in New York, originally from Chicago (city, not suburbs). I love good suits, when I can afford them (or snag a good buy). I also like street wear - raw selvedge denim, cool sneakers, crazy patterned shirts (no Robert Graham please), too much jewelry and accessories (for a dude - but no earrings), and baseball caps (once in a while.

    Favorite recent purchases are a genuine panama hat from JJ Hatters on Fifth in Midtown Manhattan, a Christian Dior jacket that I snagged off the street for $10 - (I had to get some modifications done), some raw denim, no label jeans I picked up in Wicker Park in Chicago, and a ridiculous Pal Zileri pinstriped beige suit and floral tie from Leonard Paris, both at Dino Baldini (on Madison Ave in NYC), a store I love, but probably should not be shopping at very often. Also, a new Raymond Weil watch, which was a big step up for me in the watch game. I have a large collection of traditional keffiyas (Arab men's scarves) from travelling and living in the Middle East that I treasure more than anything.

    I hope I don't come across as arrogant. I didn't have a ton of money growing up, and I probably spend a bit recklessly now that I have some. But I try my best not to get too attached to material things. Looking forward to contributing.

    Thanks,

    Habibi

    Hello,

    my name is Andrew and I just joined to use this site to find clothes that aren't listed on eBay. I used to be a sneakerhead, or whatever you want to call it...but now I'm broke and looking to sell my shoes and clothing :).

    Female poster into Men's fashion.
    Into mod/suedehead/skinhead items. Men's fashion complements women's fashion, and a lot of tips can be taken from some of the posts I've seen on her. Into higher quality, SHARP purchases. (Yes, that's S.H.A.R.P)

    New member here.

    I've lurked for a while, but basically I started an account as I sadly might be selling my very new ToJ baseball jacket...

    I didn't join before as I didn't think I had a whole lot to add to the threads. Still not sure, but oh well.

    I'm moving to the US v soon, to keep studenting for a few more years.

    Hello, new guy from CA.

    I've recently got a big boy job, so now I have the means to work on a nicer wardrobe. I'm here to learn!

    Hello, I'm Benjimin. I'm new here; to the forum and to the world of fashion. I'm 28 and I'm a single father to a beautiful 7 year old girl. I'm 5' 11", 150 lbs and I have no clue how to put clothes on that frame. Hopefully this place can teach me a thing or two.

    G'day. Mike here, mid 30's, haven't worn business wear for over a decade as I have run my own businesses. Now in a suit daily and hanging around the forum enjoying tips and support. Just posted my first question in the Ask a Question thread if you care to look.
