    My name is Paweł and I’ve been lurking on Styleforum for a while. I am originally from Poland and currently live in Manhattan. I’ve lived in the US for the past ten years.

    I’ve developed an interest in classic menswear, especially handwelted bespoke shoes and suits. It began at a New England boarding school where I had to wear suit and a tie daily as a uniform. I really enjoyed it and continued wearing suits through college. Currently I work in finance and specialize in investments.

    I tend to wear suits daily and prefer more formal attire. It’s easier working at a major financial institution, as business attire is expected and encouraged. I love to wear a tuxedo on occasion.

    I am passionate about bespoke shoes and suits as well as the skilled artisans behind them. I travel the world to explore the sartorial world and really enjoy meeting shoemakers and tailors behind my orders. So far I’ve visited artisans/factories in Italy, England, Spain, the US, Poland, Mexico and Germany.

    I collect shoes, ties, pocket squares and vintage cufflinks. I love learning more about history behind menswear industry and stories behind particular pieces. I also enjoy photography, particularly taking photos of classic shoes.

    I hope to contribute to Styleforum and learn a lot from fellow members. I look forward to getting to know other forum members at events such as the London Super Trunk Show or Pitti Uomo both of which I had a pleasure attending last year.

    Hi,

    I'm XWT. I love classic menswear but I dress in denim and casual shirts most of the time. I'm a management consultant and I try to make my interest for menswear converge with my career.

    Welcome Pawel. You attended Pitti Uomo and LSTS, what can I say, I'm jealous! It's been a dream of mine to partake in or observe Pitti Uomo.

    Hi Trueclassicman, I note you have a watch that is listed and can be added to the shopping cart on your website for $0. Does this mean you're giving watches away?

    Hey everyone,
    I am Niklas from Cologne, Germany.
    In 2005 I joined a German fraternity where you are supposed to wear classic menswear on a regular basis. I already had a background with historical costumes and at some point I got really fascinated by the style of vintage menswear. I love structures, patterns, flannels and fancy accessories. I try to improve my style constantly and even sew some things myself.
    Best regards.

    Good Morning Gentlemen!

    My name is Riko. 31/male/NJ, USA. Been married for 1 year and 7 months. I absolutely love menswear and general style. Subscribed to GQ and Esquire since a teen, and found out about this site about 3 years ago, but just officially joined.

    I work in pharma (read: Corporate America) and I am starting to build my wardrobe. Over the years I have gained a considerable amount of weight, so due to my size, I can't purchase the things that I really enjoy until I get near my goal weight. So I am stuck buying things off the rack or shopping at DXL/Casual Male.

    Goal one day is to be known in my general circles as the best dressed man they know. That's the dream, LOL.

    Looking very dapper. Appropriate for the scenery in the pictures you have shared thus far. How does this look work day to day in a city like Cologne? I was blown away by your cathedral. :)

    As an IT analyst I have no problem wearing tweeds or flannels to work, but I also like to wear pinstripes or checked patterns. I guess I will be posting to the "What are you wearing right now"-Thread now and then. :)
