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

    Hi Team,

    Would prefer the Portland or Bayfield in brown cordovan?
    I wear an E width in the 1-last, so I'm afraid the Bayfield might be too bulbous as it is relatively wide in its D width already.

    Thanks for the heads up. I'd buy a red pair but Amazon doesn't understand they are made in America and are trying to charge $67 in import fees to Canada.

    Yes, there is both a brown suede and brown leather version.

    Edit: I see what you mean now. The leather version mistakenly has 1 pic of the snuff suede shoe.

    Alternative B. Return Magnannis ASAP. Next, consider how often you'd actually be wearing black cap-toes. If not so often, then swap your Park Avs for a pair of Strands. In terms of color/models, my preference would be as follows:
    1. Walnut Strand
    2. Brown Fifth Avenue
    3. Burgundy Sanford
    This said though, you will only have cap-toes in your rotation. Honestly, I'd probably swap Fifth Avenue for a pair of Short- or Long Wing Bluchers.

    Call them. They should be able to fix this for you manually.

    Thanks for the input! Any reason you say the bolded? Are they really that much lower on the quality totem pole?

    Yeah, I know what you're thinking. Honestly I feel like I need to keep black plain oxfords sort of by default, but I'd really rather have a pair of brown wingtips, with Strands being the next best alternative. I wear dress shoes to work 5 days a week (and they'll be worn sometimes on weekends with jeans or chinos, which is another plus for the Strands), but I rarely if ever need to wear a black suit. They [black cap-toes] are just very convenient to have around and I don't have a single pair.

    If I return the mags, I might just swap the Park Aves anyways and pick up a cheap pair of rubber soled black cap toes as a backup shoe/for wet days.

    Thanks for the tip. I signed up and received my coupon over 30 days ago though so it's expired and I'll pass. Shouldn't be spending right now anyway.

    Instead of brown wingtips I'd recommend the McAllisters in Merlot. IMO the best color choices to begin with would be,
    PA - Black
    FA - Brown
    McAllister - Merlot
    Strand - Walnut

    Exactly my thoughts, these would be the perfect combination of the 4 evergreen "timeless classics" AE styles

    It's probably the country's smallest AE store in the same building as the Alden store, I believe.

    When you apply the chili edge dressing, use a clean rag and wipe of the excess. If you do not you will get a shiny look on the dressing when it dries. I apply it and quickly wipe it off. Looks great.

    I believe you're thinking of the one on 44th and Madison. The one on 43rd is between 5th and 6th and is larger.

    New Webgems are up. A mixture of holiday-themed and golf shoes. Not a big fan of this release.

    I really like that dark blue one. I just wore my blue Neumoks for the first time last week, but had I seen this first I would have returned them for this.
