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,

    The Styleforum Team

    Take 1: Impeccably dressed, charcoal grey pinstripe suit, purple tie, long black overcoat, he is standing inside a shop.  His cell rings, he exits and starts along the sidewalk towards his car.  The beautiful suit, the elegant overcoat?  Destroyed by his gait, his posture, the sound of his shoes dragging on the tile floor.

    Take 2: The man crossing the street moves with masculine careless grace.  Strong, decided, head high.  He is wearing jeans and an open shearling.

    Given good jeans and a decent shearling, a better outfit too, imo.

    How quickly we forget, or are not conscious of our general bearing. Sad, don't you think?

    Yes, in many ways.
