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!

    j said,


    Pants are supposed to come to your waist, which is a bit below your navel. Does it make you feel better about yourself to buy the ones with a smaller number inside and then hang your gut over the top? Pants also are supposed to hang to the bottom of your shoe, more or less. No sock showing, no extra piles of fabric. It's really very simple.




    The waist on most people is above navel. And waist IS above the hip bone..What you are describing is wearing pants on your hips.

    Dress pants: On the waist, which is above the hip bone.

    Khakis: Slightly below the hip bone.

    Jeans: Lower than the khakis, to the crack of your ass or above your pubic bone depending on your build.

    Yes it was, rather remote as well.

    BTW the bride's father is a multi-millionaire, owns a castor factory in Guangzhou.


    It's quite an experience isn't it? Everyone in the village are related and heaps of them share the same surname and very close knit and what not. Did your friend have a more upmarket ceremony in the city as well?

    A number of my cousins did this. Big reception at a nice place in the city, then a more properly traditional ceremony back in the ancestral village.

    Dark shirt, dark jacket, and light tie. Reminds me of Regis Philbin on Who Wants to be a Millionaire.

    This, exactly! I call it the "High School Grad look", and it is ubiquitous! I have been to more than a few events at which I was literally the only one wearing a white shirt.
