This is a thread in which you introduce yourself, regulars and new members alike. This is one thread I'd like to keep reasonably civil and reasonably clean, so, let's do that, okay?

I'll start. I'm Fok, one of the adminstrators on the forum. I have a bunch of kids and live in Idaho. If anyone told me any of the above 6 years ago, I would have wanted whatever they were smoking.

I wear jeans 24/7 - mostly Triple Works and RRL, and otherwise, have a lot of belts and overpriced Italian made sneakers. I mix up Wings+Horns, RRL, Jil Sander, Margiela, Haversack, Woolrich Woolen Mills, and SNS Herning,

Hope that you guys have a good time on the forum.

Cheers,

Fok.

Hi everyone -

I'm Jamie - I've always been into jackets, mostly leather, but became more into fashion since moving to DC and working in a more conservative industry. Looking to learn more!

Hi Jamie, I think that many here would agree that a good quality transitional leather jacket is a staple item. Welcome on board to the forum!

Hi everybody. I'm Ismael, found out about this forum completely just by accident. I googled some resources related to style. I've always been interested in this for as long as I can remember. But in recent years I've been thinking a lot about changing my profession....
Hello Ismael, welcome to the forum!

Hi everyone. Spyke here. I stumbled upon this place while looking into vintage suits. I’m a t-shirt and jeans guy, but recently decided to buy a suit or two for going to church. While shopping at a thrift store, I found what I thought were vintage suits, and tried looking up info on their origin, and here I am. Anyone know where to start looking for info on these labels?

I’ve tried using the translate function on my phone, but came up empty. Any info would be appreciated

I've been posting more frequently than I anticipated in the last 6 months (the account was dormant from creation date until then) that I think it's appropriate I introduce myself. I am a dude from Brazil with a British wife, and we're both moving to NYC soon. I've always researched the stuff I buy to an unhealthy extent, and many google searches pointed to SF threads. It wasn't a stretch until I started asking for advice in threads I created myself.

I might have amassed the biggest collection of selvedge denim and GYW shoes in the country in the last 6 months. Not to my merit, it's just that they haven't reached Brazilian shores yet. My bank account really took a hit. Now I'm venturing towards classic menswear, trying to find a way to dress it down and not cause too much of a scene for being "overdressed".

Thank you @Synio18!

Sure, check out Housing Works, Beacons Closet, L Train Vintage, follow Jake Wolf on Instagram. He has great information. There’s a high end men’s thrift shop in Brooklyn, they sell great quality mens vintage wear that you can have tailored. sorry the name escapes me. Jake introduced me to this shop. He might be able to assist you with this. As for selvage & American workwear inspired definitely check out Left Field located in Queens - worth the trip! Williamsburg Garment Co. & Fitted Underground are both absolutely unique. They’re ‘the places’ for real handmade custom selvage, etc. Similar to Left Field they’re independent small businesses & they’re great people to work with.
