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.

    I personally like driving shoes for everyday wear, although some of the flashier ones could be a bit incongruous. I wear puma speedcats with jeans quite often, they are comfortable and stylish.

    Funny...today I am wearing a pair of Vapor White suede with blue-navy stripe Speed Cats with a pair of GAP "worker" jeans, and a RL Polo custom-fit shirt in Andover Heather (gray).

    I agree completely. A chunkier shoe looks good with baggier jeans. But some chunky shoes (Nike Vandals and Dunks, Doc Martens, real army boots (what we used to call shitkickers)) are acceptable. Others are just ugly. No need to mention them again. And yes, a slimmer jean calls for slimmer shoes - but your John Lobbs are not the answer. Try a slimmer sneaker or a Chelsea boot by a more modern designer like Prada or Costume National.

    And you must have me mistaken for someone else. I love hiphuggers. I've never seen a pair I didn't like. My non-ironic point was that I think that they look good even on girls without perfect hips.

    L.A. Guy,

    I'm right with you on the Chelsea Boot.

    We agree completely on this point.
