    Hi, I just joined. I've retired a few years ago and moved to Florida after living and working in Washington DC as a attorney and lobbyist. I'd like to think that I dressed well in DC -- suits and sports jackets, very trad -- but moving to a beach town in Florida is quite a change -- shorts and polo shirts most days. I wanted to be on Style Forum so I could see what I'm missing fashion wise.

    Hi. My name is Jeremy. I'm 44 years old and I live in Oregon. I usually wear jeans and polo shirts, but I am looking to advance my career, so I want to become more fashion conscience. I am here looking for advice on clothing, shoes, and whatever else I may be able to find. I currently have the chance to buy a pair of Bruno Magli Martico shoes in dark brown for $70. This seems like a decent deal to me, but I don't really know stuff like this. That is why I am here. I want to know these things and I hope to learn a lot from everyone.

    Hello all. I'm a 21 year old student studying biochemistry in university, and I'm really looking to change up my style to look more elegant and professional. I unfortunately never have the time to shop during the school year, so I just end up looking at stuff online. I mostly wear jeans and chinos with button-down shirts or sweaters depending on the season, but I've become very intrigued with classic men's clothing, especially shoes. I have the closet of the average student, and I would like to build it so that all the essentials are covered for now. I'm more of a shoe guy, so I invested in a few Goodyear welted shoes and am already feeling like a boss. I've been lurking for 6 months or so, but I finally gave in and joined because I will eventually need the help of the fine people of this forum. Looking forward to it!

    As I've made a few posts, I suppose it's only polite to introduce myself.

    I come from the UK - London, specifically. I've long harboured an interest in classic menswear, a few years ago I started building a suit and sport-coat collection. As my resources are rather limited, I have had to depend on ebay and charity shops. I have been a long-time lurker on these forums and the knowledge which I've gained in that time has been absolutely invaluable. So, I suppose it's only right that I make my presence known and participate if and when I can.

    Hi,

    Mimi Gardener Gates once told me, "you have such style." Not certain what she knows but I suspect what she does, somehow matters. I love tweed, turtlenecks and jackets. As a tall nordic guy I am constantly called Thor and I generally dont work hard to get noticed (the gates thing was brought on by wearing a black cabled turtleneck and grey velvet pants at a Seattle Art Museum event that I was visiting from out of town). I like tennis and am in the art world so most of my positions style-wise are not for everyone.

    Hi everybody,

    I'm new to styleforum but have been reading posts over my friends shoulders. Thought it would be time to get involved and open up my own account.

    I am based in London, UK and have been interested in menswear since a young age. I am particularly fascinated by the growing niche between sartorial menswear and workwear. I love the juxtoposition and would love to get to know people who are much more knowledgeable about the field than me. Of course I will try to chip in my two cents when I can but all in all I feel this is a great place with a well of knowledge I look forward to digging deep in.

    Great to meet you all.

    Sartoriental.

    For the last several years I've found myself wearing fedoras and sport jackets, and lately I've been wanting to know more about quality clothing. I plan to learn a lot on this forum. I have a question about vintage shoes. I picked up a pair of vintage men's dress shoes. Most of the brand name has worn off, but I can still see "NARI". Does anyone here have any idea what brand of shoe that would be?

    Glad to be aboard. I've lurked for roughly a year, and have garnered an array of information. I decided to join primarily because of a d'avenza thread I lurked about last night wherein an eBay merchant whose wares had caught my attention was involved. He seemed knowledgable and his store is simply loaded. I believe the thread title was something along the lines of "For the love of d'avenza" or something of that nature. Very interesting that the consensus seems to be that the d'avenza merch from 3 primary vendors is from the pre-Cuccinelli period, and that the suits are of extremely high quality. I've purchased from one of the vendors in summer 2017--think it was a Brioni jacket. But I just pulled the trigger on a double breasted black pinstriped suit that is exactly what I was looking for. Vendor is ilcravattaiomatto and is located in Italy, so it might take awhile to get here near Pittsburgh.
