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

    Are you wearing a button down-collar with a bow tie? It certainly isn't a winged, or cut-back collar, is it a bow tie shirt? If this is an evening shirt it highly unusual one (can't see any other front buttons).

    Are you wearing Chinos and braces (suspenders)?

    Chinos and a bow tie? A smoking/evening jacket with a waist coat in the midday sun?

    A DJ/ evening suit is the last formal dress code, I prefer to keep it that way.

    As a general point, people have been doing this for a very long time, you know. It's part of the 'Ivy' look (and this is not to endorse the outfit as a whole, because it's basically a mess).

    I quite often do it, but only with casual bow ties in printed silk (paisley or neat print patterns) or textured weaves like a herringbone wool.

    I agree that the above look is rather a mess - too many competing elements that jar with each other instead of combining well.

    I read a few of the posts in this thread and would like to invite you to enter a free contest on my website.


    I'm very interested in learning about men's style as it goes across cultures, whether it be across nations or across a city. I do not receive any money from anyone to do this, I'm just very curious. Small prizes are currently given out by a randomized computer and your name will be entered upon filling out the questionnaire and providing a picture. You do not have to give your real name if you prefer not to. Your information will not be sold and I will not email you other than to say thank you or to notify you of your free prize.

    Here's a short list of some of the prizes:

    - Luca Roda Ties
    - Gitman Bros. Ties
    - Duke of Windsor Sotheby's Catalog (2 volume set)
    - One of a kind pocket squares made from vintage fabric with hand rolled edges
    - Saphir shoe products

    Thank you for your time.
