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,

    Hi,

    My name is Richard.
    I live in Surrey with my wife and daughter and run a company that creates music for TV / advertising.

    I've spent much of my life without any real sense of style but recently decided that it was time to sort myself out! This has led to an unhealthy obsession with all things Nigel Cabourn. I also have a love of well made workwear, tweed, British shoes and American boots. Labels that I've grown to love include EG, Post O'Alls, OrSlow, the aforementioned Nigel Cabourn and many more.
    I've been a lurker here for a while now and have picked up a few tips but it's time for me to jump in, learn some more and generally join the chat.

    Hi Everyone!

    We are Aaron, Tim and Sean, long time readers of SF but new affiliates!

    We are all from Seattle but spent the last four years abroad learning the ins and outs of product development and manufacturing of watches and leather goods, making these luxury products for other brands.

    Our mission with Vincero Collective is to make these same premium products, which normally cost between $500-$1500 from luxury brands, acessible to more men by selling direct online and removing the high brand name mark ups and inefficient retail system.

    We also crowdfund all new collections in limited two week campaigns so that our community can receive new products first at even further discounts and help us decide what gets made.

    Check out our affiliate thread for more!

    Hello all!

    I'm a youngish professional (30's), and my work uniform is usually dress pants and dress shirt.
    Occasionally, I get the chance to dress up, and usually end up being on the higher end of dress for the occasion, which I prefer.

    I've always appreciated my Italian-made Donna Karan suit (don't snicker!) that I bought for post-school interviews, but have been largely contented with Boss-level stuff and a decent Armani Collezioni suit.

    Until.....I was recently introduced to bijan at a local high-end men's consignment store. That has now started me on a kick to almost completely recycle my wardrobe over time to higher-end items.

    And because of a lot of lurking, I'm becoming much more of a clothing snob thanks (or no thanks!) to all of you on SF!!!

    I'm now dabbling in picky thrifting and trolling eBay for deals, because my taste currently now far exceeds the budget for new.
    I'll share some of my recent wins and continue to enjoy the clothing journey.

    Hey!
    Lloyd, Seattle-Washington area. Chinese, skin and bone but working on lean built. Had collarbone length hair before I got it cut. Still looks good but i'm planning on growing it back out. Have a few decent cheap clothes from mall stores and thrift shops. Loads of pieces on my buy list, hoping to grow a few more inches before cracking.
    Been lurking other forums for a few months, joining in here now. Heard it's conservative? Hope to learn some new things here with you guys!

    Hi, my name is Samuel and as my username covertly implicates I am a recent graduate of Louisiana State University, History BA, and Political Science BA. I recently married as well back in June 2014 so it has been a busy year for me. I was attracted to this sight after stumbling upon the thrift store bragging thread over on the classic menswear board. Mother and I had always been thrift store junkies and it was interesting to see the same coming from a 10 year ongoing thread.

    Hi, I'm a 50 yo IT geek that currently works @ home & leads a small team of developers. I'm moving to a go-to-work job when my current gig is up - probably about 6 months so I'm accumulating some office clothes now.

    Being work-at-home and not being much at dressing myself in the first place, I'm effectively a double noob here to garnish information from those that have a knack for this sort of thing. Um, thanks in advance :p

    34 waist, size 40 jacket.

    EDIT: I asked from first q here;

    Hi All - I live out in the country in Virginia and dress accordingly. I like simple, masculine and somewhat preppy clothes and shoes. I tend to avoid loud, colorful and what I consider "slick" styles. I guess I am the opposite of urban, metrosexual. Growing up, the crowd I ran with only wore 3 types of shoes -- dark brown penny loafers (the ones with the small half moon coin slot), Clark desert boots and Sperry topsiders. I spent my summers racing sailboats so my boat shoes always had a salty authentic look. We mostly wore corduroy levis, Tattersall shirts and crew neck Shetland sweaters. The winter coat was a stadium coat with horn buttons. In the Spring and Fall months, we might wear a tweed jacket over a sweater with jeans or cord levis. This simple approach to dress has never gone out of style and has stuck with me. At work, I have replaced the jeans and cords with khakis and gray flannels. I have also added some C&J boots, saddle shoes, rough style wingtips to the shoe rotation. I love Barbour jackets and have several. In fact, the horse and hunt scenes where I live have been great influences on my personal style and taste.

    I have enjoyed this forum and gotten some great advice on items I'm looking to add to the wardrobe. I also appreciate that style is highly subjective and very much a function of each person's culture and environment.

    Look forward to interacting with you folks!

    - Scott

    Hello Styleforum,

    Ken here in NYC - a colleague recommended this site so I thought I'd give it a try. Looking forward to exploring it a bit more and diving a bit deeper into my interest for menswear. Typically pretty minimalistic sense of style, sticking to classic basics, but a huge fan of outerwear.

    Cheers!

    Ken

    G'day all. I'm Sam from Melbourne, and after lurking for a while I thought I'd take the plunge into the slightly daunting classic menswear forum. Looking forward to interacting with you all!

    Hi, I'm Zero. I'm a student in the upper midwest. I wear jeans 24/7, and have a love for leather shoes, expecially boots. My style has been discribed as "greaser/country/hipster" although I occasionally dress preppier. I want to dabble into streetwear more. Well, looking forward to this,
    -Zero
