What about jewelry?

I inherited a gold snake ring from my grandma and I love it so much.


Then me and my friends went to this art exhibition and I saw a handcrafted silver ring, which fits perfectly in my middle finger. It's like this:

But instead of one big eye, it has two small white marble eyes.

So now I'm wearing both of them on my middle fingers.

Other than that, I also like ethnic bracelet, like these:

My style is Vintage Casual. American Eagle Outfitters is pretty much the only place I shop for clothing. I dont where suits much(not that i dont like to dress up, just dont have many reasons to wear one). Banana Republic suit, made in Egypt, black pin stripe with tie and wear with a Black Fedora. Ive always liked the 50's kind of suit style era.

Just registered. So lets start with the first topic.

1. Yes, the principals mentioned in a quoted text in the first post are true. That's ESTJ basics!

2. I like them to be high quality, timeless, made from good materials and fit well. I like basic colours like black, blue, grey and white. I dont hesitate to spend a considerable amount of money if I find something really fascinating - though I rarely buy anything if the price is not reduced.

3. I like to look what is appropriate at the time and situation. A good rule is that its a bigger failure to be undressed than slightly overdressed. I like to look formal but not to boost my presence unnecessarily with my appearance.

4. I usually maintain my clothes wery carefully and thats why they usually lasts for years. I have a lot of 5-10 years old clothing that are still in shape and use. I like classic Italian brands like Boss, Armani and Zegna to name a few. Though it is essential that the brand is not visible - I dont want to be the brands commercial and I dont want other people to know that I have expensive clothes. Discretion is always in fashion!

My weaknesses are nice leather shoes and italian silk ties - I have a ridiculous amount of them, though all are in frequent use.

5. Sorry, I dont have time to take pictures or browse them from web. ;)

Yup, I agree with the original post just from observing my evil ESTJ step-dad. He keeps clothes for decades although they're well-preserved. Tucks in his shirt. Usually wears cold or muted colors. Unremarkable style, really.

Do you find this description somewhat true?

Somewhat. I do not like ironing, so my clothes are rarely ironed (only my button-down shirts get this treatment). That being said, I will not wear clothes that are a wrinkly mess!

What are your considerations in choosing clothes?

For work clothing, I wear suits or pants with a blazer. So if it doesn't fit that description, I don't buy it for work. For my personal clothing, I buy based on fit, comfort, and color. I love shoes, and buy them based on quality and style (everything from platform heels to sandals). While my clothing is generally traditional, I wear a lot of bright, jewel tone colors (I have dark hair and light skin, so they complement my coloring).

What do you want to look like?

For work, I want to look professional and polished. For personal, I want to look comfortable and put together.

How do you define your fashion style?

I don't really have a style. I wear what looks good on my body type, and what I like.

My questions to you ESTJs:

1. Yes, though I am finding a more feminine side to my wardrobe recently, and have been branching out with colors.
2. Does it cover me? Is it too tight? Do I like it? Will it last through spills, spitups and everything else my baby might get on me?
3. I want to look classy, and at ease.
4. 50's style, classy, classic, refined.

I usually wear heels, even though at 5'8 another 4 inches makes me a tall woman. I make most of my own clothes because I can never find anything that I like, fits well, and isn't immodest. (the last picture is of me in a high waisted skirt I made)

  1. Do you find this description somewhat true? Yes to a certain extend.
  2. What are your considerations in choosing clothes? First quality, cutting, practical then price.It is better to get a good quality clothes than to get 10 of those which gets wear and tear easily. I prefer to buy clothes that doesn't require ironing most of the time and such clothing exist Haha. Yes I look for classic ones, if you are wearing those striking ones people will remember and if you wear it a few times people will remember you have that before. Yes neat and clean. I don't over accessorize myself, simple is good.
  3. What do you want to look like? I don't particulary want to look like somebody. I usually dress in a more feminine way and I like those one piece dresses so that I can save time in the morning before rushing to go to work and I can get a few more minutes to sleep. I love heels too but I have to take a more practical approach. If I have to be in a hurry that morning, I would wear flats for sure, if I have plenty of time to slowly make my way to the office and I have some functions to go to in the evening I would pick my heels. In the summer, its definately dresses/skirt because it is hot. Winter time, pants and trousers and boots to keep myself warm. I like jackets and coats too. I like colours preferably without any prints. Any colours you name it, I think I can find that in my wardrobe.
  4. How do you define your fashion style? Classic, Feminine, Clean, Comfortably Fit (nothing too tight or too loose).

This what I'm about to say is serious and Real Talk! I love looking GOOD! When we as in (humans) are being social or in society the language that we speak the majority of the time is non-verbal! So, if that's the case I want to make sure that what I'm saying is clear and could be understood! I'm expressing myself and I do take out time to think about what I'm going to wear but when that moment comes I go with my instinct and for some reason my day flows on along! Cool, Calm, and Collective! There's a saying, "When you look good, you feel good!" Of course that"s how I like to start off the day! Even when I'm at home I'm looking good! Some people say cocky, I say I'm "grateful". When I look at this if all this above fail, the worst I can do is at least put some thought into what I'm wearing!

Well, the other subforums have many members, while ESTJ subforum is lack of members. Most ESTJs just come and go within a month or so. They don't even post much.

You can make the thread if you want. I've already plastering my pics in many threads in this forum. I can just copy paste them to your thread.

As an ESTJ and a Fashion Designer I can speak quite a bit on this. While I've been known to dress people in all sorts of ways, I've done everything from Lingerie to Wedding dresses, I personally stick to a fairly routine "style"

I like button down shirts with cuffs and a collar. Most of the time I'll end up rolling up the sleeves, especially if I'm working. I really don't like slacks or dress pants though unless I'm wearing a full suit. I prefer a good pair of jeans as it's my mindset that if a guy's wearing something that he can't change a tire in then he shouldn't have left the house in the first place. I don't wear sandals or flip flops; I wear high traction Pumas when I'm working out, some rather muted leather lace-ups on most occasions, and hiking boots while tramping around in the woods. Dress shoes aside I like having something enclosed around my feet in case I have to run or its wet out. I like vests and jackets, both casual and formal. And while I like the look of ties I personally can't wear them. I've tried but because of the dimensions of my neck, shoulders, and chest it just looks silly. But I'm a HUGE fan of neckscarves, handkercheifs, and similar things. Just because I'm built like a pitbull doesn't mean I don't like to look nice.

I'm also a fairly vocal proponent of the concealed carry of firearms and I'll frequently match shoulder or belt holsters to the rest of my outfit. Maybe I watched too many episodes of Miami Vice or read too many detective stories as a kid but that just seems to make sense to me.

Lately, I'm being fond with floral dresses.




And ethnic outfits. I usually mix the ethnic with something modern, like I mixed Javanese traditional skirt with chilli red leather jacket and black boots.






I'm weird, I know.

Are you on the East Coast or near Chicago? Those combinations aren't actually that weird.

All, well then you're not weird you're just fashion-forward. Your "look" is gaining increasing popularity in Mainstream Chicago and the upper east side of Manhattan. When I was in New York for fashion week a little while ago I saw a number of people dressed as you've described yourself.
