OK, so i'll introduce myself.

Age: 17, 18 very soon
Gender: Male
Resides: Currently relocating to NYC with my family. Big change from SoCal, although i've been in high school on the East coast since I started.
Occupation/ Industry: High school student. Hope to establish a career in finance/Law/Business fields. Not 100% certain yet.
Favorite brands: So many! Depends on the item really. TODs, select LV items, Prada, Hermes, Gucci.. the usuals. like i say, it depends on the items
Things I collect: Cufflinks(joint collection with my dad. He got me into them), Shoes, Ties, Boarding Pass stubs(sounds lame i know but we travel a lot and as kids we always collected them), Apple Products(self confessed apple fanboy/geek whatever), Clothing labels(again sounds lame, but I have them all stuck to the walls of my closet. looks kinda like a collage), Sports memorabilia etc etc
Favorite drink: Sparkling water, orange juice, soda
Favorite food: tough one for me because I love food. Probably Seafood... and in general Italian
Favorite TV show: Mad Men but I watch so many shows
Odd things about me: I'm dunno but I'm sure there's lots
Things that scare me: Snakes, thats it!
Current obsessions: College applications, school work, sports.
Anything else: I may only be a teenager but I'm much more mature than you may think. Growing up in school on the East coast is awesome and I think we mature much quicker than other teens in the country.

Doesn't seem to be too many other guys on the TODs forum so hopefully we can get some shoe discussions under way. Between myself and my friends i've pretty much seen/owned almost every style of TODs if that helps anyone.

Gerry, thanks for your post. I share your love of tea! I noted that you live in central Florida. Wondering if you get to the beach very often, and if so, whether you ever take any of your nice bags––and how they fare near all the sand and wind.

OK,Swan, better do your own ID there, kiddo. I get to the beach every few months or so. Funny but you take it for granted when you live here. The bags stay home!!! When you live close to the ocean, you hear every news story about shark bites,infestations of jellyfish, etc. etc. Its a bit off-putting!! But I love to see it and hear the sound from time to time.:smile:

Me too, Gerry! I can get over to the water in a few minutes. I love the sounds and smells. Too many sea monsters for swimming. :graucho: We have those giant Pacific octopuses.
