    Hi all, plustwo here. Been interested in clothing and style for 4 or 5 years now (tried, but never quite got it during college), and have only gotten serious over the past year or two. Found my way here from a few places after getting bored of /r/MFA, hoping to get serious about the "less is more" approach to buying.

    I'm in engineering in southern california/los angeles, so while I get stuck with biz casual on weekdays, I'm open to experimenting in the evenings and on weekends.

    Hey all. My name is Stefan. I was introduced to this site through many Google searches related to men's fashion questions. I hope to continue learning from the SF community as well as contribute myself.

    I'm Grambosaurus, new to SF (buddy of mine recommended it).
    I'm large (6'5", 240) and looking to move from law school to the professional world, so I'm looking for everything from suits and shirts to belts, shoes, and ties. Like nearly everyone else, I'm on a pretty strict budget, so finding 46L/XL garments I can afford with student loans sounds tricky, to say the least.

    Hi All,

    I go by the name of Vtwinguy and sell on eBay by that name also except with a small "v". If you guessed Vtwinguy as having anything to do with a Harley-Davidson V-Twin engine, you would be absolutely right. I have gotten rid of the Harley and now ride a BMW bike similar to what you see the cops riding. I try to make a motorcycle trip for a week every August I am a humble shirt flipper but have also known to look for a good deal on Allen Edmonds, Bruno Magli or Alden shoe as well. I know there are a lot of other things I should be looking for while in a Goodwill and want to learn much more.

    I'm getting close to retirement and would like to make thrifting and flipping a second source of income. I live in the Portland, Oregon area and spend a lot of time in Goodwill and SA stores in my spare time. I'm probably not as snappy a dresser as most of the people on this forum. I'm usually happy in jeans and a T shirt unless going out.

    I came upon this forum somewhat by accident trying to determine the value of a pair of Alden Norwegian split toe bluchers and was amazed to find people talking about the stuff I have spent the better part of 5 years learning.

    Thanks for any input you may have to offer!

    Vtwinguy

    Hi from Finland! I'm Laurentius - or Larry - and mainly a lurker and have been reading sites like styleforum during all the boring sales and other internal company meetings I need to attend. I'm 43 and being inspired from American Psycho I grabbed a lot of Brooks Brothers and Johston & Murphy when visiting the states in mid-90's and ever since that's been my style. I would love to be like Jack Nicholson in Chinatown, a Madmen, James Bond or any main character from a F. Scott Fitzgerald novel. Wines, watches and ice-hockey are also close to my heart.
