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,

    Greetings, greetings! I got the inbox message as soon as I posted my first thread, so apologies for that. So happy I've found this website, I am a college senior (graduate in about a month), and have dipped my toe wanting to plunge into having a nice sense of fashion! Glad to be here, thanks for having me!

    Hello,
    Been interested in clothes for a while now, not so much fashion but more the history, how they are made, and the people behind the businesses. I've recently found some fantastic companies (Equus and Sam Hober) with the help of styleforum, and signed up to get more involved.

    Cheers,

    Hello,

    interests in fashion include creating a wardrobe of darker menswear with artisanal pieces and learning more about designers' histories. currently in the process of paring down my wardrobe in exchange for fewer higher quality pieces.

    Hi everyone,

    I am a working-class "traditional" American. I've outgrown my scooters, steel-toe brogues and misunderstood labels.

    I've been lurking these forums for a few years. As I have been designing my personalized capsule collection half way between country and oi. Let's call it "Good ol' b'oi oi!"
    Or Cowboi Oi? Anyhow...

    Salty, because I live on the coast of SoCal and spend my free time either in the water or on PCH riding my moto back and forth getting shit done.
    Ranga, because I'm a big hairy ginger.

    I joined SF specifically because I've got a boot problem and I noticed there were others here like me.

    -Salty

    Hello Style Forum,

    I'm new on here, and new to the internet men's wear community. I have about 7 years experience in the fashion, and men's wear business. In 2009 I started making my own jackets, and was offered a job with a company called Rogue Bespoke. We sold in the best stores, like Maxfield, and many A list customers, such as Mick Jagger, and Yoko Ono. I worked there for 5 years, and stayed in school during this time. I went to LA Trade Tech to learn to sew, make patterns, and I completed the tailoring program there. Then I went to FIDM to do a business program. I then met Andrew Ramroop from the Savile Row Academy, and Maurice Sedwell online. He invited me to come to England, and study with him for six months. I then was invited to do a course called Innovative Pattern Cutting at Central Saint Martins. After all this education, and experience, I am starting my own bespoke tailoring business in Los Angeles.
    I look forward to meeting you guys. Please let me know if I can help with anything.
    Thanks,
    Charles Goyer

    Hi guys,

    I'am Jaddon and I have joined this site to learn how to improve and refine my image within business and evening events.

    I have been on a journey of self improvement for the last few years and as all journeys it all starts with refining your mindset. I am now in a position in my life where I would like to improve my image and also meet like minded people.

    As the Director of a business I socialise with other business owners and professionals and need to present myself accordingly.

    I look forward to meeting you all.

    regards, Jaddon

    Hello All,

    Like many others I've been reading and learning SF for awhile now and I'm amazed at all the helpful people in this forum. In the last few months I have spent way too much on new clothes, shoes and other accessories. I've learned alot between this site and some of the youtube channels that talk about style and fashion.

    Hi everyone,

    My name is Vinny, and I am based in Brisbane, Australia. I am the co-founder of a menswear blog, and a made to measure brand.

    I am quite new to the scene, my MTM brand Cabal & Co has been operational for just over a year, and my blog, which is entitled The Sartorial Journal, has been active since January.

    Both have been quite well received thus far, and The Sartorial Journal has in fact organically accumulated over 20,000 followers in the last 4 and a bit months which is heartening.

    My partner and I strive to provide insightful, authentic content on our blog, and seek to fuse modern sensibility with distinctly classical undertones with our MTM brand.

    We both are self-taught, and bear no formal fashion education. I'm looking to continue to expand my knowledge base via Style Forum, as well as to get in touch with like minded individuals in Brisbane, which is regarded as being slower on the menswear uptake than Melbourne and Sydney.

    If any of you guys get a second, I’d love to get your opinion on my business and blog.

    Hi all,

    My name is Aidan and I’m based in Brisbane, Australia. As a sartorial and entrepeneurial enthusiast, I have founded a MTM label as well as a menswear blog - entitled, Cabal & Co and The Sartorial Journal respectively.

    Cabal & Co is a recently established MTM business which seeks to couple artisanal integrity with modern sensibilities - as such, we operate as a travelling tailor and visit clients at a time and location of their convenience. Our fabric collection is exclusively Italian milled and includes Vitale Barberis Canonico, Cerruti and E. Thomas.

    The Sartorial Journal has garnered in excess of 20,000 Instagram followers organically since its inception in January, 2016 and deviates from the monotony of traditional menswear blogs through the marriage of authentic, insightful content and our exacting focus on quality artisanship.

    I became a member of style forum as a means of furthering my knowledge on sartorial menswear and to engage with like minded enthusiasts - both those located in Brisbane and internationally.

    If you have a spare moment, I’d encourage you to peruse the following pages relating to my business and let me know your thoughts:

    Cabal & Co:
    www.cabalandco.com
    www.facebook.com/cabalandco
    www.instagram.com/cabalandco

    The Sartorial Journal:

    Cheers,
    Aidan.

    Hey guys,

    Great blog I must say and very insightful posts. Just saw this post here on SF but I did reach out to you guys a while back on Instagram to say hello, via PM but didn't get a response. Hoping to continue the conversation with you there or over email. And wishing you great success on your sartorial journey.

    Best,
    Hamza

    Hi everyone,

    I'm Pete from Montreal and I've decided to "up my game". This seems to be the place to get good info, cop some style influences and share in the perils of daily dress.
    Nice to see pics of humans here rather than the Pinterest "too-small on too-fit" looks.

    Antoine here. Finally joined this forum after seeing interesting online threads.

    Looking at streetstyle and clothes on social media is my biggest vice.

    I hope I can make my passion a business someday. Or just be able to earn and spend more on it.

    Looking forward to meeting other passionate fashionistas here!

    Hi, my name is Aldo and I am a Neapolitan living in London. I work in a formal/semi-formal environment and that means dressing up three or four times a week. Initially I hated it but now dressing up is a pleasure rather than an obligation. In the past two years I have been doing my best to improve my wardrobe, buying mainly RTW. Looking at this forum - alongside other sites - has been a great source of inspiration for my purchases. Since the start of this 2016, I have a larger budget and I am thinking of moving towards bespoke clothing. Hope to use the forum as a compass to navigate the bespoke world.

    Hi there. I am Achath and live in Switzerland. Married with kids, I wear suits 5/7. Love Italian and French brands mostly such as Attolini, Kiton, Marinella, Bontoni, Arnys, Charvet and Berluti. I shop in stores everywhere and I do my e-shopping on Mr. Porter, Barneys and JCrew for casual stuff. I have been following quality discrete fashion most of my adult life but this is the first time I join a style forum. Hope it will be fun!
