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

    Wow...your shoes went from 0 to 60 in impressive time...I have those G&G boots as well and love them. I like all your choices though. Only thing I'd maybe suggest is a closed-lacing black cap toe as a formal shoe if you need it for some occasions, but very nice collection.

    I know the feeling. Since starting here I've gone from Florsheim, Calvin Klien, and Cole Haan to Allen Edmonds, Loake, and Vass.

    That's definitely a nice chunk of change invested in shoes, but I'd say that money will lead to a bigger upgrade in look than money invested anywhere else in wardrobe. There's really no way to get nice looking shoes without paying good money for them.

    Where do you live? I find it difficult to find stockists for some of your shoes for try-on in person.
