Hello Henry, welcome!Greetings, everyone!
New member, new college student from Oregon, in California for college. I am a 6ft 2inch Chinese male with a passion for history and older television and movies. When I said "passion", I meant that I know little on each subject, but I enjoy learning more. In high school, my social status tended to be "the weird asian kid". I was the first to wear glasses out of my peers in first grade (everyone else seemed to need new ones more often, oddly enough), one of four students to take the TAG test (only one that failed miserably), last to learn to cuss, last to have a cell phone (2014), etc. Oh, I almost became a Duke in the Principality of Sealand this year. (y'know, that platform off the coast of the UK that claims to be a country), but decided a laptop was a better choice. Also, my family insists that I'm gay, and didn't believe me when I told them about my crush on a girl from my sophomore year history class, or that the guy I always hangout with has been my best friend since elementary school (They saw me give him a suit once, but that was on his request for our high school graduation. My family also insists that the way I hugged him was proof that I am gay, but that is because we've known each other so long that we consider each other family and he was announced as Salutatorian. How could I not be proud of someone I consider a brother?)
To most of the people on this forum, I'm probably a "noob/newbie" at classic menswear. In high school, I only ever wore a button-up dress shirt (sometimes with tie, sweater, vest, suit jacket/sport coat) or a T-shirt and basketball shorts. It may seem like a dramatic change in outfits, but it made sense to me. the T-shirt and shorts let me fit in if I wanted to, and were more comfortable during the summer, when I played basketball with friends; the shirt and slacks were otherwise more comfortable, and helped me show who I am. Yes, I am that person that wore a black suit to classes or presentations. Yes, I used to only wear a black necktie. Now, I still wear my black suits, but that's because I like them. (Yes, I realise that I will eventually ease out of that phase.) Now in college, I show up to lectures wearing a suit and tie. So far, the only person that seems to judge me for this is my roommate, who only commented on my using suspenders rather than a belt.
You're probably asking yourself why I typed so much about my clothing history. That's because I view it as a big part of my identity that nobody has ever really heard from me. So, uh, I'm bad at goodbyes, so toodles?
Spokebe, welcome to the forum. What are your questions? Feel free to ask away.Hello Styleforum,
I'm relatively new to the fashion industry. I've worked in hospitality, charity, and plethora of other jobs before flittering down in a custom suit shop in Toronto.
I'm here to learn more, improve my style, show-off from time to time, and ask for advice.
I look forward to becoming an active member of this community.
