• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Weird is the best way to describe it right now. We're not on full lock down as other countries or towns but it does look like its heading that way. The restrictions we have in place themselves are quite odd to say the least, so it's been a mix of "she'll be alright" attitude and slow build up of anxiety.

Other than the looming dread in the back of everyone's mind, Sydney's great. Quieter at the moment and weather's cooled down a bit so we're not dealing with scorching heat anymore.
She'll be alright indeed. Bless the Aussie optimism. I love Sydney, Bondi Beach!

Hey there,

My name's Jonathan. I'm a graphic designer and writer and I'm happy to finally join Styleforum. I've been somewhat interested in menswear ever since a friend gave me Flusser's Dressing the Man in high school, but for the past two years or so I had been saving money and not buying any clothes. I just recently began re-vamping my wardrobe and really enjoying dressing well. Feeling "put together" in public has helped me overcome a lot of social anxiety/awkwardness and boost my confidence level.

I love Spier and Mackay and have been buying almost exclusively from them. I love the classic style, and the quality-level seems to be a great value for the price. Their jackets and shirts off-the-rack fit me better than most of my older MTM items. I was thrilled to discover that I can wear their 36 Contemporary Fit jackets with no alterations needed!

Anyhow, I'm looking forward to learning a lot more here on the forum.

Regards,
Jonathan

Hi everyone,

I'm Ken, a 30 y/o guy from Sydney, Australia. Long time lurker but was more active in another large fashion forum (which is basically dead now except a few threads). Always knew about styleforum but had the impression it was geared very much towards formal wear/classics.Now that I've hit my 30s that's probably not such a bad thing anymore. After the death of many forums I found I don't get the same experience on the newer platforms and kinda miss the community aspect of it. Not to mention the encyclopedic knowledge some people have on garments and brand history. So here we are.

Clothing wise, I went from the raw denim obsession around early 2010s to avant garde for a few months, a bit of street wear, and in the past years came back full circle to what people refer as "normcore". I work as a full time lab slave (PhD student) and in allied health. This means I can dress more casually most days mixed with "professional" attire from time to time. As for brands, I just like fun and interesting things, and I'll leave it at that. Looking forward to learning new things and contributing whenever I can :)

Hello,

My name is Mark, I am 21 and located in Melbourne, Australia. I don't tend to wear suits, but I am quite interested in shirts. I have tried many off the rack shirts but none seem to fit the way I want, so I have been researching tailors in my area when I came across this forum, so I thought I might as well sign up and get as much information as I can.

Thanks.

Hi all!

My name is Grace, and I run the thread on behalf of Apposta, an Italian online brand for made-to-measure shirts.

A little bit about me. I'm based in London, and have spent the last 10 years working in men's tailoring under various brands from London's Jermyn Street, as well as a traveling bespoke tailor, and some time with a well known dutch suiting brand.
My formative years in the industry where spent as a freelance costumier, working on several theater productions, touring shows and small stage dramas. I have a keen eye for detail and have always loved the challenge in the technical side of clothing.
This is where my skills come into play in working with Apposta as a shirt expert, drawing on my experience from my years on London's famous Jermyn Street, keeping my customers up to date with new trends and classic styles, and my costume experience to guide customers on how their shirt fits can be improved to fit their body types.

I look forward to interacting with you all, exchanging styling tips, and commenting on technical questions you may have.

Hello all! My name is Tyler, I've been lurking around here for the past few weeks and reading bits and pieces but just now created an account so I can finally start posting!

I'm a 27 year old small engine mechanic, mainly working on STIHL power equipment. I've been in the hardware business for nearly 10 years in total now after moving down to Florida from Wisconsin about 5 or so years back.

I've honestly just recently gotten into the whole world of 'menswear' and have been entirely re-vamping my wardrobe, adding all sorts of new button-ups, raw denim pants, shirts, boots, shoes, etc. to help kickstart my new style. Being out in public and wearing a nice pair of boots and a well thought out outfit has really boosted my confidence and made me feel great overall. I've acquired a number of items from the Naked & Famous brand which I have found to be of nice quality and fit. I have two pairs of Grant Stone boots, the black w/ natural sole, and crimson ottowa rubber sole, along with a pair of Thursday Captain boots in natural cxl.

I can't wait to learn more from everyone hear and gain an incredible amount of insight into the mens fashion and style world!
Thanks everyone.

Hi! I'm Jason, from Texas. I don't think I have any particular fashion style, but I do need some suits for work, so I'm trying to get some inspiration (and lose some money along the way)
