Hi folks. I’ve been an unregistered lurker for about 18 months with increasing frequency of late.

Almost as far back as I can remember, I have enjoyed ‘dressing up’, and putting some effort into choosing and looking after my clothes. But that doesn’t mean I was ever savvy or stylish, something I am only now beginning to work on thanks to SF, a couple of blogs (my favourite is Derek Guy’s) and several books (which I again credit SF with helping me choose).

My main interests lately are dress shoes, sport coats and ties, and I must admit I registered mainly so that I could buy some ties here!

Cheers,
Matt

An unregistered lurker, I'm not sure that's legal? Glad that you see some ties that you'd like to purchase. One can learn much here at no extra cost. Welcome to the forum!

Hello, just another lurker emerging blinking into the sunlight here. I possess an unholy quantity of bags and shoes, and rather more nice coats and jackets than I should for someone living in the lower tropics. Figured it's about time I joined up so that I could participate in various obsession threads. :)

(sung to the tune of Manic Monday) Just another squinting lurker, comin' outta night, blinking into sun-light...
And one who possesses an unholy number of bags (666?) pray tell?
Well, you've arrived, come to the right place! Hopefully we can shed some light on those obsessions.

Ha! I've had many a bag come and go over the years, though I don't know they'd quite amount to that particular unholy number just yet. Mostly men's and women's designer bags, though I've gotten rid of most over time and currently just have a half dozen daily carry options left. The bag bug lingers though... I finally joined to indulge my current hankering for a Filson 257!

Be female, but as a tomboy with an active lifestyle I often prefer men's bags and style as they are far more utilitarian and practical than women's gear. My sole remaining LV is the original Tadao, a men's large tote, though I might sell it and others once I get my paws upon a 257. One bag to rule them all, and I shall enjoy seeing it patinate and evolve over time. :inlove:

Hi Tierney

I’m not sure if they are still on sale, but sick of trawling eBay and Gumtree to no avail, I finally bought a tan 257 this week through the End website (English site, even though I live in Australia, as the sale didn’t appear in the Australian version). It was $375 AUD posted. Maybe worth a look if you haven’t already?

Hi WCB - I know End, I'll go check! I wonder if they still have any... thanks for the tip! :D

ETA: No 257s, but they do have the super cute Smokey Bear Tote! If only they'd do a Smokey 257, I'd be in bits, and tan isn't even my colour...

To patinate and evolve. I like that. Philosophical, a life examined is well served. Cheers!

Yes, sorry Tierney, it was the 256 I confused with the 257!

i'm to learn the knowledge about Avant Garde.
Hmmm, not quite sure what you mean by this, sartorial intelligentsia? However, if you've come by way of wanting to learn more about aesthetic innovation, the perceptual difference between fashion (trendy) and stylish, then you've come to the right place. Welcome aboard!

Hi all,

my name is Jari and I am from the Netherlands. A long time lurker and its time to register and introduce myself. I am trying to make an affort in changing my style from casual to more smart/preppy. I am a big fan of wearing knitted ties combined with chino's, (sometimes jeans) with shirt, waistcoat/vest. Here to find some inspiration and tips.

Kind regards, Jari.
