Styleforum Top Picks
First styleforum post ever, so here goes (apologies for lighting and camera–am a poor med student):
Unbranded, cotton 3 button blazer with shell buttons and–what seems to me–some ivy detailing (hook vent, lapped seams, natural shoulder). Cloth is pretty beat up and the lining doesn't seem that great, but it's fully canvased with pretty nice construction (I think).Details (Click to show)
Black, leather, casual belt by Gap made in England. Gap had belts made in England?Details (Click to show)
Heavy Bullock & Jones pantsDetails (Click to show)
Others might have better suggestions but looking quick this one looks nice for $55, 1500w etc etc http://www.amazon.com/steamers
but I really like the hose on this one. Thats the biggest complain I have is that the hose when hot kinks in the middle. http://www.amazon.com/delux stemer

And I'm spent.
I grabbed a Conair at Goodwill a couple years ago for around $10, worked fine then, still works...not fancy or pretty but does the job. It was half off, I think because no one could figure out how to tell if it worked or not while in the store (I grabbed a cup from the housewares aisle, filled it up at the water fountain, filled the steamer, plugged in, turned on, waited a bit).
A few things from today.
SOO happy with my new lighting set up (WHITE background for suits and coats )Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
