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.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    Interesting. Pretty much everything that he says would be well-known by anyone who's read the Style Forum for a couple months.

    Agreed that most of this info is available from a thorough forum read, but it's nice it's all in one place, even if I differ with some choices.

    Also wonder where he's changing his money, I gotta go there. About Pink shirts:

    I'm going to email him and let him know about our forum. He'd fit in well, and I think its good to have more people here who are in the 'industry'. Anyone have anything against that?

    I'm interested that he included Brooks and Pink in his list of fine shirt makers. I'm surprised that his tie reviews were of Hermes and Ferragamo. And in light of discussion here and on Ask Andy, flabbergasted that he says of Church's
    No mention of C&J.

    It was an interesting and informative read, however.

    There was no mention of Berluti as well.

    I think John limited his review to brands he had personal experience with, as he should. Also, it was written some time ago, so not all information will be 100% current.

    (STYLESTUDENT @ 14 Sep. 2004, 07:48) Here's another perspective on clothing manufacturers and quality. [URL]http://www.jderickson.com/clothing/makers.html
    Not to be snippy, but I believe some of our more celebrated board members here could write a more comprehensive and detailed article. koji
    ditto. Someone should publish a "Best of the Style Forum" book, and compile all of the really useful or informative threads into one easy-to-use, super-convenient package (and then charge $49.99 a copy).

    Also, after reading Mr. Erickson's web site, I think it's a fine effort. I know it could be better, but so could anything- certainly my book, and even Dressing the Man. It takes courage to put oneself out there in creative endeavors, and I think the young man should be commended for his effort.

    If any of you want to write similarly, contact me. Bruce Boyer, Bernhard Roetzel, and Alan Flusser will be retiring one of these days. Never hurts to have some new blood in the mix.

    I do like his website, especially his essays. It also makes me want to work at a Louis Boston. [​IMG]

    The correlliani jackets used in Polo (regular) are not canvassed front? do they have canvassed lapels? are they the same as the trend series then?
