    Hello everyone. After a year or two of sifting through a lot of interesting threads on Styleforum for info. on brands, sizing help, and suggestions for where to get specific articles of clothing, I figured that it was time to finally join up. I am a doctoral candidate in Italian; my research is on postwar Italian film but I teach language mostly at the college level. I make an effort to dress nicely and I appreciate quality clothing. I would rather invest in things that I like and will be able to keep for a while than have a lot of clothes in my closet that I'm loath to wear (despite my very limited budget). I try to buy things that are made in the USA when I can. I wear raw denim jeans mostly with button downs and a good pair of shoes (my Oak Street trail oxfords and Quoddy Maliseets are current favorites). I rock a sport coat and tie from time to time and do enjoy dressing up when appropriate.

    Awesome. Yeah try to buy Made in the USA/union label products myself, though it's increasingly difficult today, especially on a limited budget. Do you like Gillo Pontecorvo?

    I did like Battle of Algiers but I can't say that I've seen any other Pontecorvo films. Do you recommend anything in particular?

    Hello, everyone. I've been browsing this site for some time and finally decided to join. Interestingly, it was information on watches that first brought me here. I first became attuned to men's style 25 years ago when I graduated from college and read Molloy's Dress for Success book. What an awakening for a small-town boy from Texas. Now, I look for classic style with a bit of personality as I work in the stuffy business world. My favorite thing about this forum is how skinny SF people seem to be, and how my 46R apparently puts me at the very limit of what-is-style. Oh well ... there appears to be less fighting over the 46's anyhow.

    After reading Daniel Peres' book "Detail's Men's Style Manual" I thought it was in my best interest to pursue the art and science of fashion further; fashion is like an art piece that decorates your body. I realized that my wardrobe was execrable, and am making a conscious effort to correct it.

    I've been reading this forum for quite some times, and have learned invaluable information on the subject that seems so damn elusive at times. I plan to lurk more, experiment with more clothes, and read more before commenting in threads.

    I'm just an old guy with lots of memories - retired Air Force pilot and engineer. My style is golf shirts and slacks, but my wife does a lot better. Probably won't be posting much unless I think I have something to say.

    Hi all. My name's Dan. I'm 19 years old, an engineering student, and I live in NYC. I have a somewhat more 'classy' wardrobe than most of my peers (Brooks Brothers, Paul Stuart, etc), since I inherited my dad's wardrobe when he passed. I'm getting to the point where I'm significantly bigger than he was, and stuffs starting to not fit (fancy that). So, I'm putting some effort into getting clothing that's actually what I want, and fits properly. Of course, as a college student, my budgets rather fixed, but I do what I can.

    Looking forward to getting to know this place!

    Hi all,

    I'm in my early 30's and live in Vancouver, BC. I've liked clothing and fashion for as long as I can remember, but wouldn't call myself a connoisseur by any stretch. I dress smartly for work and occasionally will outside of work (as the situation demands) but mostly I'm a t-shirt and jeans kind of guy. Over the past few years I've started to pay more attention to fit and quality of the clothing I've been buying, particularly as it relates to dress attire.

    I've been creeping around Styleforum for about 6 months reading up on the how-to's and checking out the buy & sell threads. To be honest, a big part of the reason I've joined is to take advantage of the buy&sell as I'm looking to re-build my wardrobe with quality pieces without having to pay retail. I plan to contribute to other threads and seek out some advice from the resident experts on fashion matters once I get the lay of the land.

    Cheers,
    Andy

    I am Ipse, I love myself (hence the name), am a 19 year old guy, live in some remote and desolate place in Arkansas. I am very very pretty , I am an avid videogamer. I also love menswear clothing, and clothing in general. I have been lurking here for quite awhile, only deciding recently to make an account and be a poster. Really like this site and has a whole bunch of information on how to improve my aesthetic appearance

    I also live in Pittsburgh, and I also finally signed up after lurking for at least 4 years. What are the odds?

    Sup, chronic lurker here and viking from Sweden. This site has helped me improve my (previously non-existent) sense of style, and hence I am now looking to make sure I'm broke before entering university. I am mainly posting here because I hope to use the trading board, which I think might be easier if my existence is not a complete mystery.

    Have a nice day!

    Hello! I'm ChickenBall, a Chinese Canadian dude living further north than most, working in IT. I'm a tech, geek, part-time freelancer, occasional gamer, but otherwise zen guy.

    I got into suits and business/professional menswear after watching Neil Patrick Harris "suit up" in How I Met Your Mother, although I now prefer the stylings of Jeff Daniels in HBO's The Newsroom. However, I worked in a nickel mine for the past 8 years so wearing suits without destroying them wasn't really an option until I got a job at the municipality this past month. While their dress code is business casual, I've decided to take the plunge and suit up everyday for work (the ladies there give their earnest approval).

    I started out learning about suits from AskMen.com, but this site is more comprehensive; I regret buying a few pieces now, but you live and learn. I mostly lurk and research, but if I feel compelled to add something of value to the conversation, I'll be there unless somebody else beats me to the punch.

    Stay classy!
