    I feel I've learned quite a bit (and come a long way) over the past 1+ of lurking and some posting. And while this may be embarrassing, I thought pictures would be better than words in expressing my appreciation for this site since I've found it. Mind you many of these before items could be 10+ years old, but it's still indicative of what I was still wearing pre-SF. [​IMG] [​IMG] The before and after suit/SC pictures will probably be more fun - but will also take more work and thus will probably not start until mid June.

    How much did you drop on shoes?

    Nice collection though!

    Edit: Do I see Darlton wingtips and Sutor's next to them?

    Not sure exactly --- but I'm happy with the prices I paid and still cheaper in the long run over what I had before. (Many of the KC made in Italy though!!) Still have the bug, and want some suede monks and G&G St. James II in Vintage Rioja next. Call it a pre-mid life crisis, but these should last me 10+ years and I'm just [​IMG] [​IMG] And yes to Darlton's but no to Sutor's. Wholecuts are Di Mella in espresso calf.
    Good stuff!

    wow, that truly is night and day. Very impressive. I'm glad I found this site at age 21, so my pre-SF style is mainly sans dressing up at all. it is amazing the inspiration and drive this site gives u.
