    Thinking of wearing this OL suit:

    with this shirt:

    with black Raf derbies, a white cotton pocket square, and no tie. Seem reasonable, if not exactly inspired?

    The event makes no mention of a dress code. It will be attended by over-eager entrepreneurs and the mayor. As I am neither of those, I'm not really sure why I'm attending.

    Dig it, but don't you think a white shirt would better complement the suit fabric?

    Possibly, and I commend you on your correct spelling of the word complement (rather than compliment, which would mean that the shirt was saying something nice about the suit fabric).

    I think my only white button-front shirt is in the laundry, though. :embar:

    There damn well better be.

    As it turns out, the OL jacket is like 5x more comfortable worn as a 3-roll-2 than a regular 3-button, although I think it looks better as a 3-button.

    +1000.

    The reason that SF exists, and the reason that SF brings in money to the owners (Fok and J, presumably), is because of the members.

    Without members who contribute useful content, SF dies and so does the income stream.

    There's clearly a balancing act here - SF needs revenue to cover costs and to give Fok a wage for running the site and advertising provides that revenue stream, but if there's too much advertising it will deter new members and drive current members away.

    As long as there is advertising on the site, I'd be vehemently opposed to the idea of a membership fee because, as a member who posts content (content that is, hopefully, of some small benefit to the wider forum), I and all of the other members who regularly post on SF are already contributing to SF's business model. Therefore, expecting active members to pay a membership smacks of double-dipping, in a sense.

    The last person I saw standing like that was high as a weather balloon doing, that annoying weed head laugh.

    Wait... is StyleForum going to ban the use of adblock and offer either Ads or adless + subscription? :uhoh:

    Ads don't bother me much but it would be great if they didn't take up so much of the page.

    The current adds squeeze the main forum area into a much smaller screen and leave us with much less space.
