    Hello all,
    My name is Greg and I've enjoyed lurking on this forum for awhile. I'm retired from law enforcement and one of the few hobbies I have is collecting vintage and custom made cowboy boots. Really enjoy the thread on cowboy boots so thought I might as well join in.

    Hello there.

    NYC. 33. Working out how to dress like an adult. Huge fan of The Armoury, Epaulet, Frans Boone, The Bureau, Monocle, NMWA, P. Johnson, and Carson Street. Typical, I guess!

    Hi, I am Mike.
    Clothing:
    I like old faded and comfortable, cotton denim blue jeans. They are my favorite pants to wear but of course are not practicle for many things.
    Nice and fashionable button-ups that are not to flashy make my wanted list.
    Now I am finding I love the newer breathable materials that they are producing.
    Where before it was restricted to workouts and such, now I can look good, presentable and feel comfortable as well as not sweat.If I get wet the material dries so quickly it almost doesn't matter. I love it. Not to mention they are soft, as comfortable as can be. The little holes are so small they really do look good.
    I tend to like darker colors and then shake it up with a lighter beige or something. I actually like red a lot too, I just don't seem to have any red clothing left for some reason.
    Other stuff:
    Anyway, I like outdoors activities like fishing and just getting outside. Take part in activities that amount to exercise so it lessens any time burdens as well.
    Reading is enjoyed at night before I sleep, sometimes. Then I prefer a good fantasy book. The darker ones are rather interesting and I find that a good fantasy book tends to be written better than most other genres. Better plots and stories and character development.
    Otherwise I read a lot of self training types of material.
    Working on my first ebook that is near completion. Hopefully out within 2 weeks. I am looking forward to this. The suspense makes a person want to through it out in the public eye but the common sense says no, finish it, fool. HAHA
    It will be an accomplishment when it is published though.
    That's all for now.

    Hola a todos,

    I'm from Southern Spain; after travelling a bit I ended up right where I started: in Southern Spain, hahaha

    My job does not require any special attire.. I could be working in shorts and flip-flops but usually I like dressing in a classic way. Shirts and V-Neck sweaters, chinos, blazers and decent shoes.

    I'm after a crocodile leather Berluti belt.. let's see if a find a great deal somewhere on the Internet.

    Saludos!

    Hello, I am Edward, I am quite happy to join these forums, the world needs more style. I dress in a classic way, with some exceptions coming from the high end denim brands.

    Good morning, as a long time browser and I decided to finally join the conversation. I'm a second year associate at a mid-sized litigation firm in Houston, and a native Texan. I'm 29, recently married and trying to build a large professional wardrobe. Since 2009 I have relied on Indochino for most of my suits, and before that I had the typical 2 suit rotation of an undergrad. I'm slowly diversifying and adding more reputable brands to my closet. My current rotation includes the Indochino essential gray, essential blue, and a deep midnight blue striped that I believe they have discontinued. I round that out with 3 Hickey Freemans from the Traveler Collection in navy, charcoal and taupe sharkskin. As far as footwear goes I'm a firm believer in Allen Edmonds as a starter and have 3 cap toe oxfords in different colors. My biggest issue is finding great fitting shirts. I'm 6'5 with long arms and legs so off the rack isn't really a great option, I have a couple of Indochino shirts but I'm not very impressed with their quality so if you have a MTM recommendation feel free to let me know. Fashion aside I am going on 3 years with my lovely wife. We love Houston (I love the food and the Texans, she loves the shopping) even though we are both Dallas natives. In the rare instance I get enough free time from work I enjoy fishing, golf and duck hunting. Looking forward to hearing from y'all.


    Thanks,

    CB

    Hello, I'm Bank.

    Just came across the Forums and was impressed with the taste and the knowledge of those who participate.

    I'm 46 and work and live in Chicago.

    I'm a former college football who is still bigger (6-3/240) so finding tasteful clothes in my size can be a challenge.

    Looking forward to the conversation.

    Hi,

    Tri-State Area. College Student. I'm a sucker for Ralph Lauren and Raw Denim. I love to: read (anything but romance novels lol), stumble at playing guitar, listen to music, enjoy fine cigars, dabble in photography, and follow street wear and men's wear trends. I also am big into pretty much all types of movies. I am an avid fisherman as well, and I spend as much of my free time fishing as I can.

    Hello everyone,

    I'm Devon, right now situated in South-Central PA, but graduate in May and who knows where I end up after that. I'm both excited and terrified about the future currently. I've been on Reddit for a long time and am a big fan of the Goodyearwelt and Rawdenim communities over there and for whatever reason, I had always just skipped a Styleforum membership. But being on Winter Break with an ungodly amount of time on my hands, I've decided to get involved over here as well.

    I went to Germany at the beginning of this year to study abroad and ended up running a lot to deal with stress and homesickness, causing me to finally drop those pesky 15 or so pounds that I felt always kept me from looking alright. Feeling a bit of pride in my appearance for the first time in my life, I decided I should start dressing better as well. I don't think I ever dressed extremely poorly, but I was a big fan of matching sneakers to shirts and I wore a lot of baseball t's and pre-faded denim. I never stood out for looking good, of course, but I did at least always wear things that mostly fit and I take some pride in that fact.

    As the months passed, I did a lot of brand research and realized that the brands I favored: Express and American Eagle, weren't very highly regarded as far as quality/style went and I decided to upgrade myself to Uniqlo and J. Crew and J. Crew Factory and I feel that the style and quality of those brands definitely eclipses that of my former brands. I still purchase American Eagle occasionally, I think a lot of their pieces still are pretty good, especially for the price. But more and more, I find myself wanting to go even further. I want higher quality raw denim, flannels and the like. I recently purchased my first Gitman Bros. Vintage shirt by proxy at their sample sale earlier this month and am so pleased with the weight and quality that I plan to wear it once a week, if not more often. Just today I purchased my Wolf vs. Goat rewards membership, as I know it's headed away shortly and would love to pick up a shirt or two from Mauro whenever I see something that piques my interest. I'm lucky to be close enough that I may stop in for a visit, just to figure out sizing. Other brands I'd like to move up to eventually: SNS Herning, Howlin', Inverallen, The Real McCoys, Homespun Knitwear, Merz B Schwanen, Viberg and some others I'm certainly forgetting. But I know it's a slow process.

    It's great to be here and I look forward to probably lurking for 3 months and then eventually posting a few things.

    Cheers!

    Hi,

    I've been lurking here for a while now. I finally decided to join so I can actually be part of the discussion. Hopefully I've read enough here to not be lambasted too badly by the regulars when I ask for advice :D.

    Hey,

    26/M/Boston

    Can't really say that I'm into fashion, but I just like wearing comfortable clothes and still looking good.

    I guess you can categorize my style as "street" style;
