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.

    Hello.
    I'm from Ohio, and work at a company where everyone wears a uniform. I do have an opportunity once or twice a week when I need to wear nicer clothes. Since I like outdoor activities like gardening, cycling, and running, most days I'm dressed pretty casually after work. It's those 1-2 days each week where I'm trying to improve my style.
    I have a hard time finding clothes that fit. I am tall, with a 36" inseam and wear shirts with 37" sleeves. My torso is not as long as my arms/legs, so finding a 42" jacket with long sleeves, but not too long a body, can be difficult. I wear a 13B in dress shoes, but generally need a 14 for athletic shoes.

    Hi

    I'm John, a lawyer near London in England. I mostly wear Corneliani and Ralph Lauren during the week and Levi's Vintage Clothing, Crombie or Pal Zileri on the weekend. I buy new and used clothes and now mostly online.

    I look forward to reading others' posts.

    Cheers

    Hi all,

    My name is Scott. Currently living in southern Ohio and don't necessarily have a consistent style. I came here looking for information and inspiration regarding what to do with my own style.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    I'm STF4, and live in Pennsylvania. As someone who has appreciated the finer styles of men's clothing since I was a teenager, spurred on by a passion for classic movies, I am happy to be here. On Christmas Day to do what I did in my late-teens/early twenties: I decided that I would dress in a manner as to really be "me", not just the neat dresser I normally was. It felt so good and authentic, that I never went back to dressing as I did previously. So now, whether I'm at home on the weekend, out grocery shopping, at work, or wherever else I may go, I'm dressed in trousers with suspenders, dress shirt, tie, sweater of some sort (usually a vest, or cowl neck cardigan), and, if I'm out, an appropriate coat/jacket, and a hat, which is usually a Fedora. I've always wished that people still dressed the way they did in the early to middle twentieth century: society has failed to grant that wish, but there's no reason I can't make it come true in my own little corner of the world.

    I look forward to learning what I can here, and possibly even providing some input myself.

    All the best,
    Sam

    Hi forumers!

    After reading this forum for about a month or so, I finally decided to join. The interest of wearing and dressing "appropriately" was triggered mainly by friends and family because I used to be the most "outrageously" attired manager in my company. I have been hinted, commented and critiqued!

    In any case, would like to know more about the global interest from forum members around the world...thank you and cya all around!

    Malsam S.

    Hi,

    my name is Fabian and my interest in fine suits is what brought me here.

    I'm from Hamburg, Germany, where i go to lawschool. I mostly wear jeans (mostly Dior Homme, but also some Margiela, 7 For All Mankind, Hugo Boss,...) but i want to start to change this to something more sophisticated.

    From what i have read so far, i think i will like it here.

    Hey everyone!

    My name is John. I work for the Tom James Co. I have signed up so I can keep my ear to the ground on what's going on in the fashion world so I may better serve my clients! My Father has been in the business for about 40 years and I hope to make him proud in carrying on the same trade.

    I love bow ties, vests, scuits, lace-ups and monk straps, and of course color color color! My weakness and hope from being on here is that I will gain an appreciation for styles other than my own, get new ideas, and just become a better clothier all around through this experience!

    I look forward to hearing and sharing!

    God bless!

    Hi guys!
    My name is Alex. I joined the forum to discuss classic menswear and more specifically shoes. I am having a pair of Edward Green Shannon boots made to order and have posted about this on the Edward Green Appreciation forum.

    I look forward to our discussions.

    Cheers,

    I'm Rachel, and I'm mostly here to learn more about men's fashion, since my boyfriend of one year is a styleforum member and a fashion-conscious male. I am currently an undergraduate piano student at the Juilliard School in New York.

    Hi -- I'm Stephen. I live northeast of Philadelphia, PA, USA. Very close to the King of Prussia Mall, which I've seen referred to several times on this forum!

    I joined sf in 2012 but had just started a career in sales and had literally no money to speak of, so I couldn't really entertain many of the ideas I initially found. Now, I'm in more of a position to build my wardrobe, and have made it one of my goals in 2015! This past week (2nd week of January) I went through my closet and drawers and threw out / donated pretty much anything that wasn't "classic" in style -- stripped my current wardrobe to the bare minimum so I can build it back the right way.

    I'm interested in finding pieces that will last for a long time, even if I have to pay a bit for them. I'm tired of horribly manufactured clothing!

    So, a little bit about "me". It's hard for me to find brands of clothing that truly fit me for the following reasons:

    - shorter arms/wide torso (bit of a gut) - so many long sleeve shirts I try on that actually fit around the waist have arms that are wayyyy too long
    - wide feet - hard to find a good selection of shoes
    - muscular thighs & short inseam - no "slim fit" pants/jean for me!
    - I'm 5'7", roughly 205 lbs. The extra weight is all in my midsection, I dont' really get "fat" anywhere else

    I'm excited to take a look around the forum and interact with members after being gone so long! If anyone out there has the same body type as me or the issues I listed above, I'd really love to hear some suggestions.

    Thanks!

    Hello from Houston!

    I'm a High School teacher who lost 50 pounds and, as the opportunity was there, changed wardrobe and style as a result. I have been thrifting most of my life, so I used that to build a new wardrobe.

    I now 'dress' for work every day with jacket, tie (usually bow tie) and 'nice' shoes. My style varies, but it's mostly traditional american with a touch of Italian dandyism thrown in. My students encouraged me to start a WIWT tumblr, which is kind of silly, but I do it anyway. http://teechaswag.tumblr.com/

    I began to sell my old stuff on ebay, then I started to sell new stuff that didn't end up fitting or fitting in, then I realized I was making money, now I sell on ebay fairly regularly. I sell a lot of Brooks Brothers, Allen Edmonds, Zegna, Hickey Freeman, Paul Stuart, etc. I'd like to post some of those things on these forums from time to time and when rules allow. I won't advertise that here (or anywhere on SF) until I'm more familiar with rules and protocol, and this post isn't meant to be some way around that.
