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,

    Hey, you need to repost btw the website of that bespoke shoemaker whose shoes you have on your avatar. I believe that was lost with the last crash. I remember many of those shoes being just plain stunning!

    Seriously?

    Does that mean the shoe gurus think Kenneth Coles are acceptable or well made shoes?

    The graining of the leather seems to be a bit coarse across the vamp of the black cap toe shoes. Perhaps some conditioner and strong rubbing will smooth it out so that the finish does not flake off. I very much do like the style though.

    Absolutely, infact, only if someone is very polite and offers me at least three pairs of Lobbs or Greens (New in box - of course), do I reluctantly part with one of my well worn Kenneth Coles. The altruist in me, forces me to share my good fortune at discovering these marvels of artisitry. As you are a novice, I am willing to trade two of those Edward Greens for my Kenneth Coles. Just to initiate you into "The club". [​IMG]

    Unfortunately way out of my size range.[​IMG] I am continually amazed by the elegance of the Vass lasts.

    Doing my Charles Laughton impersonation: "The welts, the welts!" (or was it "the bells, the bells!"???).

    Those welts at John Lobb get wider with every season. That must be the equivalent of the "˜Dynasty' shoulder pads or the 45mm watches. What happened to the art and the skill of neatly cut welts?
