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

    Edit: On a sunny day.

    Would navy be too much? What about gray herringbone?

    Navy blazer with navy chinos doesn't look good, because it looks like you are trying and failing to fake a suit. If the jacket were distinctly lighter or paler, it could work.

    Gray herringbone might work. Its a look i do in slower days at the office in the summer when im too bored to really try. Solid but a bit "beh"

    Hmm I see. If I were to change the trousers from navy to cream/stone, and keep the tan shoes and belt, what kind of colour blazer would go well with this?

    Navy. Or a dark tan check.

    With the first look, some kind of light gray with a hefty chunk of texture. Navy pants are tough.

    Even the gray herringbone might work. It's technically ok but I'm not a big fan (although again I do it from time to time)
