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,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    I am FLMM. Despite holding three graduate degrees, and being an attorney, lobbyist, rare bookstore manager, and auditor at various professional stages of my life, I am the resident SF redneck. Feel free to PM me for any questions regarding the manufacture of methamphetamine, incest, culinary preparation of roadkill, and above-the-knee denim wear.

    I am unfortunately unschooled in the banjo, as my musical instrument of choice is the washboard. I will consult with my cousin/uncle Bodine and see if he would be willing to compile one. Thank you for your interest.

    Utter noob here; figured this was a good place to start posting :)

    I have been lurking SF for a couple months, and have been reading style blogs for around a year now.

    Now that my school days are behind me, I am working on building a professional wardrobe. Living in Ottawa makes it pretty tricky to find nice styles though. I definitely default to Banana Republic, Club Monaco, and Urban Outfitters for most of my staples.

    I used to be REALLY skinny, but have packed on 25 lbs of muscle and fat over the last year by working out, and can now usually fill out a mens size small (which used to always be too big). I have pretty broad shoulders and a small chest/waist, so having a good tailor has made a huge difference. I've been buying suits that fit in the shoulders and getting the body taken in with success. But like I said, still basically a total noob here looking to learn.

    My style tends to lean a little on the metro side (not a lot... anymore), simply because I can get away with it (v necks look good on skinnier guys). Any advice from guys with similar builds (5'10, 145 lbs) would be appreciated.

    I'm into nautical/classical themes/accessories, and get my hair cut in a tight 60s slick once a month.

    Looking forward to dabbling in this community with you classy mofos

    New member here, just bought some autumnal neckwear on the classifieds board. Heavy knit wool and mohair numbers to wear when the weather gets cold.

    33 years old, married, lawyer, living on the East Coast. I prefer bourbon over scotch and do not own a black suit. When I travel overseas I smoke Dunhill cigarettes (buy 'em cheap at Duty Free), but never in the States. I have crashed a motorcycle. I can't stand Cesar salad when it comes without the anchovies. Big Ten football all the way. Most recent purchase was a pair of tan bucks. I was a big athlete when my odometer was lower. Frozen custard is way better than any ice cream I've ever had, and the stuff in Wisconsin is the best. Manuel transmission, never automatic.

    That is all.

    Ernest/Ernie here. Joined styleforum after I happened upon it while looking for a used dress shirt online (Zegna). Recently upgraded to a bespoke navy suit from my old $100 polyester suit. 20 years old, international student from Malaysia and have been studying in the States for 3.5 years. Will be graduating December 2011 and most probably working full time as a mining engineering somewhere in the States here. Proud owner of a manual transmission E36 M3 :happy:

    In addition to my earlier introduction, I absolutely love clubbing. The atmosphere is beyond awesome. My favourite club song is Pitbull's Hotel Room Service (it's the one that goes, "Forget about your boyfriend and meet me at the hotel room"). Right now, it has to be LMFAO's Party Rock Anthem.

    Hi,
    I'm Jay. I enjoy lurking but hope to be an occasional contributor.
    I like button down shirts, cardigan sweater vests, bow ties and sport coats.
    My feet are junk so I can't wear anything exciting. Thank god for New Balance, their 927's keep me comfortable all day.
    Will wear a scollay cap or a fedora when the weather turns cool.
    Spend most of my spare time officiating amateur sports at the high school and college level.

    Hello,

    I am Mitch. Still in high school and work part time at the local supermarket (aka it takes me forever to save up and buy my desired items). I have been browsing the site for a while and have fall in love with shoes, sports coats and bow ties. I can see this site is going to cost me a lot in the near and distant future. Other than that, I enjoy dining out, drinking tea and reading. Sums me up.

    Hi all,

    My name's Josh and I'm an employee of Huddler (the new StyleForum platform). Must confess I have generally awful fashion sense (most of my wardrobe is Old Navy or cheaper), but I'm looking forward to learning more about men's style and this community in the course of my work!

    You stay classy, StyleForum!

    Josh

    Hello everyone, name's Winchester. I'm mainly here just to look up whatever I need on raw denim or other street fashion trends, but also mostly because the marketplace here is organized very neatly compared to Hypebeast and Superfuture, can't find what I'm interested in a lot of the times on those sites because of the mass amount of threads and lack of structure at their marketplaces.

    Hello everyone. I am Joe from the USA. I like HK suits from my main man Eddie Siu at Fat Tai on Kowloon Road. I'm also into English and Italian shoes and Cowboy boots. My wife is from Tonsberg, Norway and this has given me a chance to start getting into Norwegian woven wool items. This is exciting for me. I work in the advertising industry. In my spare time I like to read and listen to music. My favorite sport is golf and I am an Ohio State Buckeyes fan.
