    Wassup,

    I'm Chris, I'm a 19 year old college student from California, I love fashion, especially shoes, however I'm on a budget so half my purchases are usually from thrift or consignment stores, sales, or other bargain hunting. I'm hoping I can learn a thing or two about style lurking these forums.

    HI I'm in the process of upgrading my wardrobe through thrift stores and estate sales. I hit thrift stores about 5 times a week and love it. My wife thinks I'm crazy but to find great pieces you have to grind.No more itchy fabric from Walmart and family dollar. I deserve better and still spend about the same. I look for Ralph Lauren, 7 for all mankind, Burberry and Giorgio Armani. My dream finds are Brioni, Tumbull & Asser, Canali and my man Yves Saint Laurent. Looking forward to chatting with everybody.

    Hi, my name's Cooper.
    I'm still young. I attend a college prep school.
    I wear pretty basic stuff mainly, looking to get out of the basics though and move on and find my style and not the reddit/mfa style of OCBD, dark jeans, CDB.

    Hi, I am jselt53, aka John. I'll be 59 in a couple of days. I am divorced with two children. I live in upstate NY, dress casual for work (psychologist) but like to dress up/hip when I go out and often get many spontaneous complements when out in saratoga springs. I follow A Suitable Wardrobe and wanted to follow another blog site or two. I mostly pay attention to GQ and try to emulate the looks on the cheap. I'd describe myself as someone who has way more shoes than I should, several tuxedos and associated odd jackets (to pair with jeans), colorful socks (none of which are worn during the warmer months), plenty of bow ties, ties and pocket squares (love the Tie Bar), sport coats, blazers, and cashmere sweaters. However, i am bit colored blind so putting it all together can be a challenge at times, especially when i get away from the basics. Nice to meet you all.

    Hello everyone, I'm new in here and I thought it would be good to briefly introduce myself. My name is Armando, I'm 25 years old and I'm from Mexico.

    I recently found this forum, cause I love wearing a suit or a sportcoat or blazer, I recently found the love to wear this kind of clothes. So a year ago I upgraded my complete wardrobe, back then, I only had one suit, a black Massimo Dutti 130's which I used for my prom.

    I love fitness but this has become a big issue. I have a big back compared to my waist (42' - 30'). So when I bought all my new suits a lot of work had to be done. In fact my personal tailor is still wornking on some clothes. I think he has done a marvelous work considering the alterations the suits needs.

    Now there is a lot of information in here that I wish I would knew back then when I bought my suits. Especially in this part: "Many highly priced brands (e.g. all but the highest quality Armani, Hugo Boss) sell fused jackets." from this article http://www.styleforum.net/a/what-kind-of-suit-should-i-buy. And that is because I bought all my suits without knowing what was a fused jacket of a full-canvased jacket. So I bought one Armani Collezioni, two Giorgio Armani, four Z Zegna suits and two Hugo Boss blazers, keeping in mind that I wasn't buying the top suits but at least some good quality suits and now to find out it is not, it's quite dissapointing.

    But anyway I will open another thread to get the response on "What suits (brand) I should buy?" for later suit/jacket shopping.

    Thanks, I will try to participate the most I can.

    Kind regards!

    Hi everyone, I'm TM. I've recently gotten interested in dressing well after a friend made some "helpful" comments to me. Bought my first pair of Allen Edmonds the other day and I've started shopping at Jcrew and some other nicer stores. I know how I want to look, i just can't afford it yet [​IMG]

    Hopefully this forum will take me to the next level
