It's lighter, more durable, wind-resistant, and more comfortable than traditional Loden fabric. Partnering with Rochester Tailored Clothing, we offer custom garments like sportcoats, suits, and overcoats, made to your specifications. Learn more about the Loden collection here.

Hello StyleForum,

Manuel here, from Spain. After losing some pounds (well, a lot), adding a workout routine, finding a new job in a more conservative environment and having to move to away colder place, I found my pre-existing wardrobe useless. I've been seeking for advice on some Spainsh-speaking forums, youtube... which helped me to build a versatile budget-friendly wardrobe. I'm more into business casual but my work (consultancy) requires higher dress code.

I hope this forum helps me to complete it, learn new things and later on help others.


Best.
Hi Manuel, glad to hear that you're getting in shape and have a new job. Welcome!

Hello, I'm Halibut. I think I'm like a crate digger but for clothes? I enjoy the search and the research. I like seeing how other people choose to style clothing and how two people can wear the same piece very differently. Sorry, I don't much care about denim or FCL jackets =] Can I still stay here?

Hi all,
Long time lurker and decided to take the plunge & sign up.

I am in NZ and am starting to move away from the casual shorts & jandals (or sneakers in the winter) to slightly more elegant avenues. However I am more into classic styles rather than bleeding edge fashionista stuff.

I also don't own a single pair of gumboots. Sorry.

Hey there,

I'm Matthew. I'm a recent college graduate having earned my bachelor's degree in Vocal Performance. Going into college, I was a horrible dresser who's attire was swayed by comfort, cheapness, and trends. As someone entering the classical music profession, I knew I had to up my style game. I owed it to my profession and my own self. This is when I became entranced by classic menswear. By the end of my degree, my wardrobe had transformed from the afore-mentioned aesthetic to one really representing a youth delving in the classic men's style world, though I am still on the journey to always look my best.

I am currently taking a gap year before returning to university and pursuing a master's degree in Vocal performance. This year I've been teaching voice lessons, taking local gigs, and flipping thrift finds around my locale.

Pleasure to be here and engaging after being a lurker for many years!
Matthew

Heyya!

Phil here. After moving around the world over the past few years I (re)settled down in Singapore, started working in design a year ago, and am extending my aesthetic pursuit into the world of wearables. Working in a fairly casual office and my formal wears are mostly shelved; transitioning away from the high street look to something more personal; also working on Marie Kondo-ing 1/4 of my current wardrobe made of Muji and Uniqlo.

To me, fashion ought to be functional and fun, and appreciating the diversity and dynamism created by different designers is extremely enjoyable. I love AW looks the most and thoroughly enjoyed roaming around in my layers, but unfortunately am living in tropics now. Therefore I am mostly looking into summer outfits, especially since travelling is unavailable at the moment. Of course, any frugal fashion advice is always welcome!

Recently in love with Jacquemus

Hi Phil, 'fashion ought to be functional and fun, and appreciating the diversity and dynamism created by different designers', you're on the right track. Give my best regards to Raffles Center & Orchard Road.

Hello... I worked in NZ for a couple of years back in 2011-2013, beautiful country.

Your comments made me smile, as from recollection Kiwi's took the casual Friday look to the extreme, with shorts and no shoes etc. I found it all very odd.

Perhaps you can evangelise among the sartorially unconverted?? Good luck.
