    New here and looking to learn the basics of style and get some input on defining my own personal style while building a respectable and tasteful wardrobe. I'm a 32 year old professional from Kentucky who works in a casual environment and often feels too dressed up even in a tie, much less tailored clothes and a jacket. (Environment more than personal comfort and preference.)

    I like learning about fabrics and classic approaches to manners, dress, and shaving. Looking forward to sharing my knowledge and love of micro-brewed beer and bourbon in exchange for the fashion advice I'll no doubt receive here. Really enamored with watches and shoes, although finding affordable quality styles within my budget will be an issue. Also looking to learn about and invest in quality denim, as I've never owned a pair of jeans that cost more than $80, and even then I didn't purchase them until they were on sale.

    Looking to branch out and also learn more about choosing and incorporating simple accessories, preferably simple things that don't look ostentatious: I don't like to be the center of attention, but I do pride myself in looking well put-together.

    Hello. My name is Brandon. Been lurking the board for a few years.

    I wont lie, I signed up today to try out the business end of this forum. After 10 years of selling on eBay I have had it with those guys! (Sound familiar?)

    Anyways, I am a college student with decent scholarships and financial aide. I also used to maeka bit of money on the side selling records but for the past year have been selling mostly clothes instead. Really, you never know what I might be selling next but a lot of the time it tends to be the stuff I wear like Fred Perry, Ben Sherman, LaCoste, some Hugo Boss, etc.

    Ill try to say something here and there, and hopefully make a sale or two as well! Cheers.

    I have been reading the forum for a while and finally got around to signing up. I am teacher so I dress business/casual. I just feel better when I know I am dressed well for the day. I have learned a lot from styleforum and hope to keep improving. Nice to meet everyone.

    Hi, I'm Marcus.
    I joined this site to know more about real style - so far I've worn casual clothes, but I feel it's time to change it:)

    I tried to make a thread but I'm not allowed to make one? I submitted it and the thread just disappeared. The thread counted to my post count so I don't know where it went.

    This is what the page said:

    I'm Bob (rmckee47). I run a little business from the Boston burbs that gets companies on GSA (govt) contracts. I have clients in 20 states, which is fun. My dress is casual, except for my shoes which are mainly Alden, AE, vintage Florsheim, all of which go surprisingly well with Levis or khakis. My wife thinks it's hilarious that her husband has more shoes than she. For clothing I'm partial to BB: their cotton shirts and trousers look great with little care, their wool trousers hold a nice crease for years, and their jackets are great quality with a classic look. This year I decided to switch off golf shirts and acquired a dozen Tommy Bahama silk shirts (new w/o tags) from ebay. Friends have been surprised to see me covered with parrots and hibiscus. I'm in my '60's and stay active by playing tennis, platform tennis, kayaking, and running our dogs on conservation land.

    Been lurking here for a little while....thought I'd finally sign up to join in some of the discussions. Think it's interesting reading some of the MC vs. SW&D debates. As for me, I guess I fall somewhere in between. I suppose I'd classify myself as conservative SW&D/casual MC. Definitely not into the alternative looks but also not into the traditional loud preppy look either. Not going to see me in skin tight jeans with knee high boots or with pastel pants and white lace ups. Overall I just want to get some tips and maybe share in some of the discussions.

    Rocky...aka, Wes.
