    I am in need of a new wardrobe and I am looking for someone who might be willing to spend some time assisting me with possible purchases/style questions on a more personal level than a message board (instant messenger like MSN).

    If anyone is interested and willing please PM me.

    Thanks

    I'm certain a few on here could recommend a good men's image consultant [​IMG]

    So...are you looking for free advice or are you willing to pay? I am certainly not qualified to help in this area, but someone like LA Guy has been a professional stylist and lives in Boston. I bet that for the right figure, he'd be more than happy to help. If you aren't in Boston, and are willing to share what city you are in you may be able to get recs for a professional from others on the board. I'd be interested to hear if you have success finding someone willing to do this pro bono. I'd also be interested if, afterward, you felt that the free advice came from a truly authoritative source and that you found it useful.

    i guess i phrased the question wrong, becuase i dont think i need an actual consultant

    i think i was looking more towards open dialogue

    ill just post on open forum. the more people the better the advice

    IF you know the size you need/ are familiar with the measurements you require on a jacket/ trousers (i.e. jacket length, actual chest measuremetn, sleeve length from shoulder seam to bottom of sleeve, trouser waist, trouser inseam) I think i might be able to help. however, if you'd like my help I will ask you to make a trip to a nearby nice department store to try on a few labels I recommend, to see what you might wear in certain makes (has to be a nordstrom, saks, or better yet neiman marcus).


    PM me if you're interested, i'll send you my MSN messenger name/ info.

    Just hanging around here and reading the various threads will help immeasurably.

    Before taking the plunge, I'd seriously recommend just absorbing as much as you can from here -- there are some tremendously knowledgeable members whose stylistic preferences cover the whole range. Some of the pictures that get posted will help give you a much clearer sense of what you like, what you want, what you think you could pull off etc.
