I thought of simply posting this in the "What are you wearing right now?" thread, but I want to share with everyone a story that shows how StyleForum and AAAC have affected the way I dress and also to thank everyone for so generously sharing their knowledge (cross-posted on AAAC): On Friday I went to the Ralph Lauren store in Beverly Hills to meet with Hilary Freeman and get fitted for a pair of Edward Green shoes (more on that in a separate thread). When I finished, I browsed several other stores on Rodeo Drive for about an hour, visited South Coast Plaza, and went to several outlet stores. By the end of the day I had received 5(!) compliments: two "You look very nice today", two "Nice shoes, where did you get them?" (thanks Chris, aka nightowl6261a), and one "I like the fit of your jacket". In my pre-forum days, I could go months between compliments, so five in one day is unheard of for me. Thanks folks!! For the record, I was wearing: Samuelsohn MTM jacket, tan with charcoal glen plaid and light blue overpane Lands' End charcoal gabardine trousers Lands' End "custom" shirt, French blue Talbott BOC tie, brown/orange/gold/navy/light blue stripes Tan/navy/brown paisley pocket square Grenson Stowe wholecuts in brown calfskin/brown suede from Bennies (my new favorite shoes) Brooks Brothers belt, dark brown Brooks Brothers charcoal cashmere OTC socks Hilary Freeman also described twice for RL salesmen being trained to fit EG shoes why my shoes from Bennies are such a good fit, so thanks once again Chris! Please feel free to share how StyleForum has influenced the way you dress and the compliments you receive as well.
