1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was.

    Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    This posting is NOT meant to be punitive, but just seeking to understand the demographics here. People here clearly like to dress "sharp", have serious knowledge, and spend money to attain this goal..

    But, dressing well means different things in different circles.

    Who are you?

    Sharp dressed Mortgage Broker "guidos" who wear "gangster/Godfather" pinstripes?
    Academic elite?
    Politician?
    Preppy WASP?
    Corporate elite?
    Doctors, lawyers, bankers.... ?
    Blue collar business owners? (housing, restaurant, etc)
    Pro athlete, actor, celeb?

    For example, Ed Hardy is considered "classy" in 1 circle/demographic,
    and tasteless tacky Prole in another.

    Brooks B. is tasteful in 1 circle/demographic,
    and is unhip / old people in another.

    All segments above have different sartorial tastes...
    This varies by age, career, education, location, etc.

    Very curious....

    I am preppy / corporate.

    I dress well to distance myself from the herd.

    Who are you?

    Sharp dressed Mortgage Broker "guidos" who wear "gangster/Godfather" pinstripes? I wear Oxxford and sometimes Brioni. Since I went back to school, I rarely if at all wear a suit unless I have to go to DC.
    Academic elite? --yes, I am currently in a PhD program.
    Politician?--I am still a registered lobbyist.
    Preppy WASP?--WASP for sure but I go to Mass with my wife.
    Corporate elite?--Worked in a corporate job in China for 5+ years.
    Doctors, lawyers, bankers.... ? Have my JD but will have to get an LLM to go back into law after leaving the profession.
    Blue collar business owners? (housing, restaurant, etc)--Not sure. My wife and I are in the middle of purchasing a liquor store.
    Pro athlete, actor, celeb?--Had a wrestling scholarship in college but tore my Achilles tendon within one month.

    Preppy, but my parents are farrrrrrrr from being preppy - they are 60% nouveau riche, 40% humble.

    I wear jeans and button ups almost everyday. i've been working blazers more and more....this forum is slowly having me throw a pocket square in there.....i guess that makes me preppy? upscale douchebag perhaps? refined NJ guido? eurotrash hipster?
