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

    No obvious giveaway, but:

    1.) It's a shady seller, got some fake looking Visvim, etc.
    2.) Tags are wrong - usually the composition print fills the entire tag
    3.) Lining, fabric on the 2nd jacket looks nothing like I've seen from PH.
    4.) No close-up pics of the fabric, buttons, stitching
    5.) The wrinkles in the jacket don't look like any real PH I've seen

    Subtle, they're good fakes. Shame gotta be on the lookout for stuff like that on a niche brand

    First one's easy, second one is tough.
    Looks like the 2nd one also has a single button on the cuff (never seen), and the wrinkles do seem forced.


    I'm selling some things on groiled people here might be interested in

    definitely seem dodgy from the tags, especially the first letter of each word and the sizing tags seem off too. 20 bids on that first one too :uhoh:

    Those shoes retail for over $2000 USD

    I would rather buy a nice Jacket/Coat instead

    Also rubber heel/ soles are far more practical (I'm not sure if these have them). It stops you having to maintain the shoes everytime you wear them outside to prevent mildew

    Sure, I'm not saying they're a bargain. But I do think they're gorgeous.

    Wouldn't the first one be way less warm than either of the second two? Not really comparable, are they?

    The third one is actually the only one that is real warm -- thick wool and oversized fit to be layered. The first has a thick cotton lining and can be layered. The second is a rather heavy tweed, but only lined in the shoulders and too tight to wear over anything but a shirt

    And no, not so comparable :) Just posting green coats!!
