Hi, I'm Afineman. I'm middle aged, and have a certain natural appreciation for style, but have always been lazy when it came to dressing myself. I woke from my hand-me-down and take-advice-from-girlfriend slumber regarding clothes a few months ago when I realized my feet hurt and that to remedy this I needed some shoes that were actually good. In the course of doing research I discovered Crockett & Jones footwear, which has now led me to the bottomless topic of quality menswear. It's an enjoyable but dangerous addiction, I see.
Hello Afineman, Crockett & Jones is indeed excellent footwear. Have you any questions that we can help answer? Welcome to the forum!

Hi everyone.
My name is Hamiste. I'm a long time lurker who decided to go in the light today.
I'm interested in clothes but none would say I'm passionated. But shoes are definatly my thing : They have been an obsession for me for 28 years old (I'm 44) and I probably bought too many of them. But it's sometimes so difficult to choose! I mainly have Bowen, Carlos Santos, Alfred Sargent, Trickers, Meermin, Crockett... I own too much pairs in very different styles including patinas.
I hope I will be able to bring interesting contributions to the debates. I even intend to create one of these days a sizing file. I'm sure, this could be useful for shoes addict.
Glad to join the community.

Hello Hamiste, yes cataloging, data basing pertinent facts regarding shoes and other products is a worthwhile pursuit, imo. Welcome to the forum!

Ehh ... it's probably about time I got around to posting this.

Hey everyone, my name is Sal and I live in Toronto - but I grew up all over the States and Canada.

I'm Canadian-born, straight, turning 40 next year, and I am happily married. I work in corporate sales in a hunting role, but I am an engineer (IT / network) by education and an artist by birth - I do actual canvas + acrylic at home sometimes and have also been doing graphic design for 20+ years on the side.

My passion for visual appeal isn't just in dress, it also extends to architecture and interiors, vehicles, CPG / product design, corporate identity & branding, and more. That passion comes from both of my parents; my dad used to dress very well, my mom was a professional seamstress and I grew up exploring dozens if not hundreds of her old Simplicity prints & design packages from the 70s & 80s. Among my current friends are a few quiet fashion designers, including one that had her line at TFW.

I regularly skim through the summary emails I receive from SF but I rarely ever come on this site, as you can all see. (The CTAs in the emails are weak.) My interest was piqued by a recent SF email that had mentioned some post about military-inspired clothing, so I decided to post the ensemble I was rocking at my wedding last year, including the jacket which I designed myself.

Side note: I am a somewhat-recovering adrenaline addict. I live for the thrill of the chase both on and off the road. I likely have one of the most ridiculous driving records on here - in under 24 years of driving, I have had over 140 speeding tickets, well over 50 drivers license suspensions, and two roadside seizures (BMW 545i both times). I actually know how to legally get the OPP officer (Ontario Provincial Police) off your ass while he is chasing you on the highway for speeding, all without getting out of your vehicle, or he getting out of his.

A random sampling of my role models (unrelated to sartorial style) include the Wright Bros., Chuck Yeager, Yuri Gagarin, Andy Green, Felix Baumgartner, and Luke Aikins.

ciao.

My name is Vivek and I live in the Baltimore/greater Washington D.C. area. I had been wearing the same shirt to a certain number of outings to the point that my friend told me to where new stuff. So I bought some Goodfellow shirts and Chinos from target, a whole bunch of clothes from Macy's, a decent amount of clothes from Brooks Brothers, Crocks, 3 sport shirts/white jeans from Nordstrom, suede loafers from Johnston and Murphy and a shirt or two/1-2 pants from Amazon and perhaps a pair of shorts. Also a suit as I'd gained quite a bit of weight since my last one and a navy blazer. I started a thread on the blazer. The suit was a Tommy Hilfiger for $200 something marked off from $600 something at Macy''s. The blazer was lauren ralph lauren. I've since learned I should've bought a more expensive suit and blazer. I will probably replace some/much of my cheaper clothing in the next few years. at least what I define as cheaper. Still have some purchases to make including double monk straps, chelsea boots, a bomber jacket etc.

Hello All

Having been a visitor here for some time now, I have always appreciated the quality posts and vast knowledge of vintage fashion that is shared.

After ending up here more and more while researching high-end vintage footwear for my eBay store I thought that it was time to give back to this great community and became a member.

Thanks for having me. I am excited to meet new people, help others, and continue expanding my fashion knowledge.

About Me:

I am from Milwaukee WI and have been selling medium to high-end vintage clothing in different capacities for some time now. Last year I expanded my horizons and started a new eBay Store in which I only sell medium to high-end vintage boots and shoes. The name of my eBay shoe store is Boots-N-Shoes if anyone is looking for great looking classic footwear.

Kindest Regards
Boots-N-Shoes

Hi SF, I finally signed up on the forum after lurking for a while. Originally I Googled my way here looking for info about shoes, but have found it's a great place for all things wardrobe related.

My closet is full of Aloha shirts, which is standard business attire here in Hawaii. So as you might guess, I'm in pretty dire need of wardrobe help.

My most recent purchase was a pair of Cobbler Union oxfords, which I'm very happy with. I'll eventually post an overview in the big CU thread.

Cheers.

JP here from the Philippines. I'm a young professional looking into building my wardrobe, something good for hot and hotter weather (SE Asia represent). Currently building my shoe collection (started with good old Goodyear welted British, of course). I was looking at some Rubinacci Marphies and wondering if they're durable and worth the purchase. I couldn't really find any info online, though.

Welcome, happy to assist. Do you have any questions?
Thanks for the welcome! I don't have any specific questions at the moment. With the wealth information here, it's sort of like browsing through a big library--pretty much any topic I could think of is covered, haha.

Welcome JP, I have SE Asia experience, mostly in Indonesia though I've spent some time in Manila. Have you any questions?

Hey man, thanks. I wanted to know if the Rubinacci Marphy loafers are fairly durable. Any tips are very much appreciated.
