1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    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'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    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

    Because they might be confused with East European sex traffickers.

    I can't see why Team GB (awful name) didn't use Jimmy Savile as their inspiration - national figure, sporting pedigree and shares his name with somewhere known for excellent clothing.

    It's bound to be better than whatever bland high street rubbish they'll actually end up with.

    Hmmm interesting read on who's behind the uniforms.
    So Stella McCartney did the actual kits for GB which I'm fine with:

    Who is responsible for the boring ceremony wear?

    A bunch of amateurs from Next.

    Giorgio Armani does the Italians under the EA line.

    Ferragamo does Republic of San Marino...

    Jamaica is pretty decent. Is SuitSupply really making the Dutch uniforms? Of course, it looks great. Belize's is also nice:

    Don't know, you can hardly see the French uniform on that picture, especially the men's one, I need more pictures. I would probably like the UK's the best if it weren't for the fact that they look like a bloody flight crew about to welcome you aboard.
    What can I say about Spain? Everything is wrong: ugly design, lousy fit, cheap material... and to add insult to injury they had to display them on mannequin's they appear to have borrowed from the discount store down the street. I suppose they didn't want to bruise anyone's feeling with expensive suits given the state of the economy.
