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.

    LK, I picture you as a sort of "Karl Lagerfeld Junior", a la the cartoon "James Bond Junior". My apologies if you are striving for more of a Jacques Helleu or John Loring look. Of course, we know that Lagerfeld is Hildeetch's most famous client...
    I don't find Lagerfeld very compelling. Yes, he has a fascination with Thomas Mann, and Guy Bourdin, which are always good signs but his look lacks a certain casualness. It's contrived feyness, sort of like how the Duke of Windsor presented himself; self-conscious.

    Clean shirt, new shoes
    and I don't know where I am goin' to.
    Silk suit,black tie,
    I don't need a reason why.
    They come runnin' just as fast as they can
    coz' every girl's crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man.

    gold watch, diamond ring,
    I ain' missin'not a single thing.
    And cufflinks, stick pin
    when I step out I'm gonna do you in.
    They come runnin' just as fast as they can
    coz' every girl's crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man.

    Top coat, top hat,
    I don't worry coz my wallet's fat.
    Black shades, white gloves,
    lookin' sharp and lookin' for love.
    They come runnin' just as fast as they can
    coz' every girl's crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man.

    I'm sensitive to light so I wear dark glasses most of the time or tinted perscription glasses.

    The frames are invariably something of a 1960s style like Browlines or vintage Cutler-Gross/Persol-types.


    Do you also smoke cigarettes?

    On the subject of sunglasses...these are 'killer'. I've been wondering what kind these are since I saw this foreign film(Memory Of A Killer). I would love to pick up a pair!

    Maybe once or twice a year.
