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!

    Cheers,

    Fascinating and fun. Thanks, Marc. I think especially to men of my generation (I believe Dr. No came out just as I was turning 21) Bond has been pretty much the ultimate symbol of masculine elegance and style.

    There are egregious moments in the sartorial history of Bond-- the baby blue terrycloth apres-swim romper in Thunderball, the safari suit in The Spy Who Loved Me, and the cheesily incongruous turtleneck/tweed used-car salesman outfit in Diamonds are Forever. But for every clinker there are a hundred iconic moments.

    Still, I must admit to precisely the same viewpoint. Around my household and office, it's called "Rule 007", which reads "if you can't imagine JB wearing it, then don't wear it either."
