    Hi all,

    I just got a message saying I should introduce myself on this thread so here I am. My name is Sergio and I live in Madrid, Spain. Up until a month ago I was strictly a t-shirt and jeans type of guy but somehow I ended up buying a few shirts that caught my eye in a store called 7camicie, which is 7 shirts in italian. I thought they were really good looking dress shirts and later that week I bought two suits in a store that was having full-on closeout sale.

    Turns out that my new shirts are apparently too dark to be real dress shirts and this is why I'm lurking around these forums. However I already wore one of them to an interview and I actually got the job so I'm guessing they can't be so bad. Anyway I'll be posting on the subject since this is why I initially registered.

    Cheers.

    Introducing myself... Well my name is JP, i've moved around a bit but currently reside in NW Arkansas. I wear whatever I want to work, from jeans to suits, my job is cool like that. I'm not very knowledgable about SW&D yet, but have always dressed better than average, thanks to a father who is always a sharp dresser. My newfound interest in clothes was sparked when I had to do some community service at the Goodwill, and found 2 pair of Zanella slacks. I don't make much money right now, so after that I was hooked. I'll be starting law school in the Fall, and graduated from the University of Michigan.

    I'm Justin, a doctor down in SC. The climate down here is making things difficult but looking to make a move to somewhere less balmy sometime soon, NYC maybe?

    Hello folks,

    You can call me as Ben and I'm from Finland, Europe.

    Everything is so darn expensive over here so it's impossible for a guy with a tight budget (like me) to buy anything known as "quality".

    How expensive you ask... It all depends on the products but here is an example:

    A pair of Levi's 501

    USA: $50 FINLAND: €100 (120usd)

    So, you guys from the states.. consider yourself lucky! :)

    Btw, I'm new about style. Trying to find a good style for my age -> 30 yrs old and want to look something like business/smart casual.

    hey all

    i'm Justin. i'm 22 and from Boston, Ma. i am really into denim, sneakers, and high fashion labels. actually, ill admit it, im kind of a snob with my brand name labels and have an addiction to big name brands. im kinda pretentious like that but oh well. i play baseball, golf, and i snowboard. im trying to get my own clothing line up and running but in the meantime im a stylist at Nordstrom. my style doesn't really fit into one category, some days im suit and tie, some days im jeans and t's. KanYe West is a big influence on my style/appreciations of other styles. im kind of a hypebeast for anything he does.

    well, thats me in a nutshell. look forward to meeting/talking to you all!

    Hi everyone as my name says I admit I know very little about fashion and I am here to learn. Fashion is always something I wished I was good at I just have never felt I had a very good sense of it and I don't have a set style of dress although I'm looking to learn more and develop one.

    I can't be grouped as into a particular stereotype as a guy. I am into dance music and Ibiza style clubbing (I'm working to be a dj), intense strength training and computers/technology mostly.

    I am very large 6'6 or 2 m tall. Muscular build with a little fat on my stomach.

    I've always liked more the moderately well dressed looked or European style you may see in a high end club. I've never like hipster or indie style.

    Hi everyone. if you like Star Wars you;ll probably recognize where my name comes from. I'm 24 and I'm form trinidad (An Island in the Caribbean off the coast of South America).

    Stylewise, largely into boardshorts, tee-shirts and skateboarding sneakers. I dressed like this for the last 10 years with the only difference being that I recently became willing to spend more money on sneakers.

    My wardrobbe is pretty basic, other than what I mentioned above I also wear denim with vintage boots and polos form either A&F or Original Penguin.


    I'm here to learn about new brands and find info about sales etc. in places where I'm travelling to.

    Greetings all -

    Working in the NYC creative industry, originally from the northern country of Sweden. I have always enjoyed fine shoes & clothing, its only now in the past few years I have actually been able to afford it! Just purchased my first pair of C&J handgrades and extremely excited to start wearing them - also a huge fan of cooking!

    Best,
    E

    Hi,
    New to wanting to dress well. Have been wearing suits for some time, and past 3 years almost every day.... Pretty young with little money, but great tip I picked up here already: is taking even a low priced suit to a tailor to fit better. Believe it or not when someone told me I could buy off the rack I just assumed without any tailoring, I know realize they meant without getting it tailored from scratch like I had before (family friend was a tailor, I was spoiled).
