1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I've been lurking for about six months and needed to register and ask some advice. Looking forward to proving I'm a real person an getting out of moderation so I'll be able to ask the few questions that a search doesn't answer.

    This place is great, and I say that as someone who historically could not have cared less about fashion.

    Hi! My name is Jake and I hail from the land of Santa Clarita, California. I'm a graduate student hoping to pursue a Ph.D. in the near future. My wife, Nikki, and I were both born and raised in the southern regions of California.

    I'm hoping to procure a nice leather briefcase, so if anyone has any good leads, please let me know!

    Blessings,
    Jake

    Hello all -

    Happy to introduce myself, but I'm here to learn, read and ask questions more than talk. I live in Boston but grew up in Portland, OR. I work for a company that builds websites for non-profits. My new year's resolution is to dress better, so I'm starting with footwear (my first real pair of nice shoes was a pair of chili Allen Edmonds from Nordstroms, just sent them in to get recrafted). I've got a long, narrow foot, so I like that AE's come in "B" (I'm a 12B mostly, although I should ask them to measure me when I'm at the store next).

    The discussion threads have been really helpful for helping to get my head around raw denim (among other things!) and I'm looking forward to buying a first pair -- ideally at a big of a discount via the Marketplace.

    On that note, any tips on how to effectively use the marketplace or warnings about the potential of getting ripped off?

    And as I'm a huge fan of well-made and local stuff, any good work being done in/around Boston I should put on my radar?

    Thanks all,
    Jesse

    Hey everyone!

    Name's John. I'm currently in NJ, I love food and conversation(usually). I came across SF as I was looking and learning more into men's fashion (not the mainstream but basics) and fit for myself. I realized that I had some terrible pieces of clothing I was putting on myself (possibly not terrible but just didn't fit me right. I am always dress in business professional and sometimes business casual, so I want to make sure that I look well.

    After learning about a few basics on fit and whatnot, I decided that I was dressing like a total doofus and decided to learn more and more and hey, I'm here now. Purging wardrobe as we speak, and looking to buy some new pieces (albeit slowly, $$). I have a strange build (skinny frame, arms, legs, wrists) so now I am looking to see how I can make myself look more professional and balanced with the body I grew into.

    I hope to receive more insight into the world of men's fashion and a new wardrobe as I browse through the pages of this website.

    Cheers!

    Hello, gentlemen (and ladies.). Well, here is a go at a bit of an introduction. I am Eric.., I grew up in the Chicagoland area, but I've been living in Kansas for the past five years. I'm currently a history and Spanish student and am nearly done with my BA. After I finish, I plan on moving to Madrid to do a Masters in Spanish history.

    About three years ago I started getting into fashion. By getting into fashion, I mean stop shopping at Kohls and begin shopping at Men's Wearhouse. I am just now getting into more custom menswear, but I am certainly enjoying every moment of it.

    I'm looking forward to being a member here and thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience with a fashion noob.

    I'm Michael, do Tropical Medicine and wear RL, Armani, Boss, DuChamp London, Paul Smith, a bit of Dior Homme and avoid mentioning French labels such as La Coste etc...

    I style on antiquated British style mens clothing and am very fond of the US interpretations through RL and Tommy Hilfiger.

    I've a range of weighted wool jackets/pants from heavy herringbone (winter tweeds), medium plaids (spring/autumn tweed) and modern light weight suits (Italian [Armani, Boss, RL], and Savile Row). Casual gear is mostly DuChamp and Paul Smith. Good neck tie, bow tie and pocket square collections and love the US interest in bow ties. Recently discovered Brooks Brothers and top-end stuff from Jos A Bank, via shopping at airports.

    Avoid (but often admire) contemporary designers through McQueen and recently Christopher Kane.

    My family has a heritage in clothing, hence my interest (Macclesfield silks, Lancashire cotton) and surname derives from immigrant workers in the Yorkshire wool industry.

    In summary the connecting themes are very British with Italian flair.

    Hello I'm Steve and from the upper Midwest (Wisconsin). I'm an engineer by trade and can even spell it :). I found the forum by chance while searching for advise on blazers for work wear. I love to wear suits even though it's not a requirement at work, we are "business casual" and I really think people should reconsider the meaning of those words! Some take it to mean most anything. I own several special suits that are handmade (for someone other than me) that I have had tailored to fit me, two of them are Denny Crane screen worn suits from Boston Legal. I am the same chest size as William Shatner and found out after my first purchase that with some tailoring I could actually wear the suits (waist taken in, sleeves let out, pants let down, coat waist taken in). I like to look good and feel good while wearing nice clothes. I'm also a part time musician, prop builder, and collector of SciFy memorabilia. Have two grown children and one in HS. I look forward to learning much more about clothing, styles, and how to buy on a budget.

    Hi, I'm Chris. I've stalked the forums for awhile and finally decided to join. I work for a company most of you probably aren't fans of, but I still take ideas and try to use what I've got. Hope you won't be tough on me based on my employer but if you do, I've got thick skin "I guarantee it."

    Hello my dears,
    Sockpoet is here!
    I live in a home;
    I live on my phone.
    I dress for success;
    I dress in distress.
    I own many shoes.
    I follow the rules.
    I work for the man.
    I work on my tan.
    I'm quite declassé,
    But never blasé.
    I hope you enjoy
    My time with you boys.

    Hi All. Ramon Here. I've been a voyeur for quite some time but finally decided to take the plunge and get involved. I'm based in Sydney so whilst I love classical style I also need clothing that works in our climate. I also run a small business from home making suits and shirts :)

    Hello! My name's Nate. I'm a poor student right now (MBA - Finance). I enjoy good beer, good food, speak some German, and love cost accounting. I have terrible taste in clothes. My typical uniform is cargo shorts and t-shirts, but my wife is excited that I'll have to start dressing like an adult soon. I was a competitive collegiate bicyclist about 6 years and 40lbs ago (mostly mountain biking). I was also a bicycle mechanic, and do all my own auto repair (part hobby, part me being a tightwad).

    Hey all. Been lurking since the summer, figured I'll make an account. Pretty much a broke college kid, but still like to dress well. I typically stick with staple brands that have good quality for a low price point i.e. uniqlo, ll bean, jcrew factory, etc. I'm also active and into fitness, will probably be stalking the random excercise thoughts thread as well. I enjoy almost any type of music, my favorites being indie and hip-hop. But I guess that's enough about myself for now.
