    Greetings Gents,
    By trade I am an accountant, however, I have a growing interest in men's dress. I currently claim New York City as my home. I do not post on SF as often as I would like. But I write a blog on men's dress, fashion and style that I post on 3-5 times a week called The Fine Young Gentleman. Most of my inspiration and taste is derived from classic English dress and American traditional dress and Prep/Ivy style. I try to shed some of my knowledge (which is not comprehensive but ever-growing) to my readers. Please feel free to check the blog out, spread it to whomever, send me a PM/email ([email protected]), or follow me on twitter at FYGblog.


    Cheers,
    FYG

    I'm just now venturing into GC on the advice of a moustachio'd gent who hates San Francisco. He shall remain nameless. But he loves dogs.

    As my bank account allows, I'm slowly taking over the world. Otherwise, I revel in a good deal. Also, most hiphop after 1996 sucked.

    I'm Ed, from Long Island. Recently decided that I've spent enough time lurking on the Engineered Garments FW11 thread that I should probably just join in on the fun. I work for a Midtown NYC non-profit right around the corner from Nepenthes, which has been--shall we say--a bit of a problem.

    Other notable bio-bit is that I'm a vegan and as such don't wear any leather, wool, or silk. This brings with it some interesting style challenges.

    Uh, yerp!

    Hi, I'm Paul and just signed up a couple days ago. Retired last year and will turn 51 (ughh) this month. I think this is a great site with so many interesting topics and people who know what they are talking about. I made a few posts already as I am finding my way through the labyrinth.

    Hello, I'm David. I'm a college professor approaching forty. I've lived in the US, Britain, Japan and now Canada. I don't dress remotely 'appropriately' for my age or job and I don't care. I am not interested in fashion, but I am interested in style, and in discovering my own look, sharing ideas about style, and learning from other stylish people. In no particular order, I like vintage gentleman's clothing, good contemporary tailoring (which I generally can't afford), texture, mod suits, boots, Japanese vintage indigo wear, denim and Tokyo street style. I also do triathlon and am generally pretty fit which, what with being only 5'5" (165cm) tall (seriously), means that proper fitting stuff is hard to find and a alterations are often involved, whatever clothes I buy.

    Glad to be here.

    Hello everyone, Gaviao here and to be honest I have no clue when it comes to style and that's one of the big reasons that I joined this forum. Also I recently got a job as a teacher's assistant in a culinary arts program and I specilize in the front of the house (serving, bartending... anything in a restaurant that's not in the back). Before I've always been "issued" my work clothes and now it's up to me. Thanks in advance for helping with my rookie questions [​IMG]

    Whenever I introduce myself I get sideways looks from people who don't believe me. It is at this point where I usually have to say "Yes, as in 'breast value.' " Generally speaking I have a private running tally I keep for when people come up with new ways to play upon said name. As I get older, the time between new entries gets longer and longer. In a way, I'm happy because the novelty has long since worn off for me. I'd like to get past being completely characterized by my name and move on to other things. At the same time however, when someone does come up with a good, new idea, I occasionally get misty eyed at the creativity of the human race.
