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,

    Hard to tell when we don't know anything about you. By George Clooney, do you mean a side parting?

    my bad


    yeah a side parting looks like it would work @RahulJAG . You've got a good amount of hair already, now just comb it to one side, and blow dry when wet. It really doesn't look that long, but I guess if you want a trim, that's fine.

    Need a cheap travel bag and was wondering, is there a big difference in women's and men's bags? Was thinking of getting this CKC bag:

    [​IMG]


    It's listed as a women's handbag but it looks really similar to the men's duffel bag which has since sold out:

    [​IMG]


    It seems like the only difference is the shoulder strap is leather instead of nylon. I don't think the dimensions make it look feminine either.

    Dimensions for the Women's handbag are: Depth: 8.58 inches Height: 14.04 inches Length of strap: 14.82 inches Width: 17.55 inches
    Dimensions for Men's duggel: Depth: 6.63 inches Height: 9.75 inches Width: 17.16 inches

    Could someone refer me to a place where I can read up everything I need to know about denim? Whether it's a thread on here or an external link.

    Everything from hem measurements like 15.5cm, 17.5cm, etc. that I keep seeing everywhere, to selvage denim, Japanese denim, types of denim, best quality, different washes, different weights (oz) etc..

    I've already read up on raw denim so everything aside from that

    Thanks!

    Hey guys, these are the Acne sneakers that I was asking about a couple days ago. Arrived today. Any thoughts? Should I keep them or exchange for a more subtle shade of blue? Tips on styling them would be great as well--I tend to wear all black, grey, or blue (or any combination of the three).

    http://www.rawrdenim.com Is a pretty good resource.
    I would wait for the fall and get a flannel. Gitman vintage and uniqlo made them last year
    Not a fan

    Can anyone recommend some straight leg (I'm not a fan of too much taper) casual chinos that come in grey, somewhere around $100?

    I like Dockers D1s, but i'm looking for something a bit higher quality and maybe with more room in the top.

    Looks like it could be a little tight on the chest and in the seat, but nothing glaring.

    Look is good!

    Hi all: New user, fairly frequent reader. Looking for advice for my upcoming wedding.

    The following parts of my attire are set in stone (i.e., don't make me feel badly with negative comments concerning the following because I can't change anything):

    [​IMG] [​IMG]





    Yes, this is a fairly casual wedding. Reception is in a barn, of sorts. Anyway, I'm looking for advice primarily on a sport coat, and secondarily on shoes. For what it's worth, my groomsmen are wearing a black chino sport coat. I imagine that my tie (bow tie or knit) will be determined by choice of jacket.

    Budget for sport coat is up to $600.

    If you are so inclined, budget for shoes is up to $300.


    Again, I'm mostly interested in your suggestions for a sport coat.


    Much appreciated.

    Forgive the silly question but can't get a solid answer...Does "CBD" stand for conservative business dress? If so, is that just the standard blue suit, white shirt, black shoes, etc?
