    Hi everyone! I'm fdbowie and I think I have a problem.
    Just joined after lurking for several months and being directed to the sales forum from stevesmith (after my first clothing transaction on ebay).

    In the past month I started frequenting thrift stores and have a few scores, including a Brooks Brothers tux of recent vintage for $10. WTF do I need a tuxedo for? I now find myself looking for opportunities to wear my "new" tux, although this has proven to be quite difficult in Cleveland. Another thing, after all your talk about Alden and AE, I did some research and visited a high-end mens shoe store to see what shell cordovan leather was like. I'm now in the process of selling the idea to my wife, and I think she is caving!

    Do you think I have a problem? I was quite content with my clothing before stumbling across this site...

    I'm not sure this will be of interest to anyone, but in an effort not to be that guy who posts a question before introducing himself… I am trying to nail down a consistency across my wardrobe in terms of quality and fit—That is really all. I hope to continue to refine my wardrobe over the course of my life, with simplicity as a guide. Glad to become a member!

    I guess I need to introduce myself.
    I join this forum because I think I need to change my wardrobe and i want to change my style.

    Hi, my name is Gavin and I'm a long time lurker who has finally registered. I'm 26 this year, have a 5 month old son and am happily raising him with my fiance of 4 years. My interests in the formal style started early in life, but I've now reached a point where (thanks to the discussions of the styleforum at least partially) I'm advising most of my friends on all things sartorial.

    My main interests include arguing over the brown in town rule (I'm completely _for_ brown in town, and think that black shoes are boring and detract from a good outfit), skipping merrily down Jermyn Street, and creating (over the course of weeks, months, or even years) situations where I could even slightly support my wearing of yet another vintage accessory.

    A good outfit is like a suit of armour.

    Hey, I'm currently a student in LA with very little money at the moment but trying my best not to look like crap. I have an awkward figure, 5'4" Asian male with relatively broad shoulders and thighs so it's hard to find things that fit well.Probably won't post much but I do lurk quite often.

    Hi all. I'm 26 and am a financial advisor. I found this forum after looking around the net for a quality black dress shoe that I won't wear through and throw in the trash each year. My research led me to Allen Edmond and Allen Edmond led me here. I just purchased a new pair off a guy who runs a thread here selling AE shoes for below retail prices.. Crossing my fingers that everything works out and that the AEs turn out to be a better investment than my past shoes.
