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

    I am missing one on the sleeves -- there is 3 on the left and 2 on the right. I suppose, I could cut one of the left and then it would be 2 and 2 :) Might be easier than paying to replace. I have to get the sleeves lengthened and the waist taken in a bit anyways.

    I don't mind two buttons on the cuffs, but if you replace those, try to find very dark brown or burgundy leather knotted buttons.

    Posted in the tailor's thread, but thought I might as well seek more opinions. New MtM. Next fitting Wednesday morning. Thoughts/concerns/suggestions/comments?

    Where can I get a decent overnight/weekend bag? Say £100-£200 range, preferably closer to the lower end.

    No rear views; sorry. Didn't think of that at the time.

    I have used the RedOxx airboss for the last 5 years and 250k miles. It still looks brand new. Highly recommended. http://www.redoxx.com/air-boss/91018/product

    Fits a suit folded, and as long as you bundle pack, everything arrives safe.

    Leather, canvas, nylon, other? Wheels, no wheels? Available in store (where?) or online only? And etc.

    "Decent" just isn't as specific as one might like.

    Bean Boot owners: just bought the last pair in store last night. size 10. i am usually a size 11. bought the Bean Socks too. they are still...a bit loose. i can feel that they're slightly loose when i walk. not a ton, but maybe 1/4 - 1/3" from toe to front of boot.

    should i try a size 9 (they didn't have any in stock so i'd have to order online - which is also back ordered)

    thanks!

    Yeah sorry, should have been more specific.

    Leather or canvas preferably, though no problem with nylon necessarily. Probably no wheels. Either online, or available in stores in the UK.

    In your price range I'd look at Floto.

    The pulling at the buttoning point is an artefact of the pose this time around. It had been resolved to my satisfaction - none when in a neutral pose.

    I am desperate to find these exact glasses Aaron Sorkin wore on Bloomberg. Anyone know the brand, style and where to buy? Any/all of that info would be ever so appreciated!

    That they are KC one could almost guess from the hideous, square toe and whatever else the fuck is going on there. They would best be worn with highly flammable pants that are also able to incinerate the shoes simultaneously.
