When I was studying in Florence I used to frequent vintage markets. I had an Italian alterations tailor that didn’t speak a word of English (I could barely speak Italian) but he knew straight away things didn’t fit and knew exactly what to do. He didn’t like placing brace buttons which I found hilarious since he didn’t bat an eye when he recut the shoulders of a jacket (I even had fittings). I guess good fit has no language barriers.

Hi, fellow menswear enthusiasts!
I’m a 33 year-old German who - after poking into other related fora - finds the atmosphere here quite frank and open-minded. I am particularly thankful for the moderate moderation which allows a difference in opinion.

Happy to indulge in a nice exchange with you!

I find the other forums elevate certain posters and put them on a pedestal, ie, they become higher status. It comes across as very cultish, with some having elevated and protected status, and others having lower status and their opinions meaning little. It's so tiring having leasure time built around such a mindset.

The open mindedness is good here. There are no cultists and their minions trying to bring you down when you have a different way of thinking. The atmosphere on some other forums is not very good imo. I like here how we are just a bunch of guys, and none of us have elevated status. I know Rambo Rambo is extremely high up in management and Thruth Thruth is a big daddy and high up in management here too, but they don't walk around like puffed up cult members, they are just regular guys.

AAAC is too grumpy and emotional, and S.F is a haven for puffed up cultists to take refuge. No-one needs that type of rubbish in their lives, better to have a bit of fun without all the silly human notions. Fnb used to be great too, but the mods got too zealous and wrecked the place.

If you had asked for sizing advice on other forums you may have been ignored. Why? Because you would have been considered inferior and not worthy of being given attention. See... Thruth Thruth is high up in management here and a big daddy and a veteran of forums, yet he still gave you the attention needed to set you on your way. Even Rambo Rambo interacted with you....he is not spending the time trying to use the forum to make $$$$, and it is not below him to mix with normal forum folk. Both of these guys still have time for the people.

This seems very much true and I appreciate when grand leaders are still in touch with the people, like Kim Jong-Un. Through righteous guidance, one may become a big daddy here.

A German, eh? Welcome. My great grand papa on my mum's side was a Von der Schulenburg.

Extremely well put and exactly how I feel. I find it highly disturbing that (alleged) grown-up men engage perpetually in such an immature, effeminate conduct. Those with strangely attributed „higher status“ become rude referees who demand total following, almost like a despot in socialist dictatorships. Their partly comical views must not be called into question and, depending on status, rarely are. It is simply unpleasant, and - disgusting leftists would say - toxic.

On the contrary, I find it inspiring that members here nevertheless utter very clear opinions and don’t indulge in an effeminate anything goes mentality.

Shooey keeps the girly men in check. He makes it clear which men he likes to relate to.

Both of these guys are very high up in management, but they have never lost touch with the people.

It takes years to become a big daddy, and very few men have what it takes to become one. If Thruth Thruth took you under his wing you'd be extremely lucky, and you would probably advance very fast. Thruth knows many many things, but it has never gone to his head. He has done it all and reached the highest levels, and yet he takes it all in his stride and still reaches out to regular guys beginning their journey. He is a true servant of the people, and he doesn't need to puff up his ego and prove himself because he made it to the top nearly 20 years ago.

Hi there,
I have been reading this forum that has many years on its shoulders for a while now.
I enjoy shoe making, and have a special kind of admiration for makers who respect the traditions by gluing hand-welted shoes for their customer friends.

Hello Halberstram, nice tie, how the hell are you...
Joking aside, I really like the quote you have there..as a young college student, it is disheartening to hear all the one dimensional preach they do here on campus.

I feel you. Back in my days in school and university in Germany, I’ve increasingly realised this from the age of maybe 15. The socialist propaganda has gotten much worse in the last 10 years and I do not believe it will ever stop. I cannot tell you where my tie is from but Carruthers is supposed to have a new overnight bag: Jean-Paul Gaultier.
