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

    There is this Kickstarter up right now for Brave Star Selvage:
    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects...enim-built-by-you-hand-crafted-by-us?ref=live

    They are trying to create a semi-bespoke service: Select threads, buttons, etc.

    Kickstarter jeans are not fully customizable, it's just a prelaunch idea that will fund the customization platform.

    Their stuff is pretty nice, I reviewed it on my blog. Think of it as similar design to Unbranded, but better execution.

    In my experience with Unbranded, they have relatively plain features. Untucked belt loops, simple yoke construction, nothing risky or unique. Similar case here, but the stitching is higher quality and more precise: For example, the belt-loops are consistently in line with the waistband stitching, and the hemline is more tightly assembled, less deviation in the fly-button positioning, etc.

    Basically, I think you can tell a difference in workmanship comparing something handmade in a Factory in San Francisco compared to the quality of goods coming out of Macau.

    Also, the pockets are not insanely shallow.
