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!

    Did the eBay business policies just disappear for anyone else? Was working on listings and they just disappeared.

    I list through eBay instead of a program/web service and it's like a template for your returns/shipping/payment methods. Basically my Returns and Payments never change but Shipping has a few different templates for different things like ties/shoes/suits, etc. It made it a lot quicker but it's since completely disappeared and now I have to manually fill these values in.

    Oh.

    I always just used "sell similar", the stuff was already filled in from the last tie/shoes/suit etc.

    In either of the

    In either safari or Firefox if you select the web inspector, you can do a find on "iwascoding" and it will point you to the server. The name of the template is in the address.

    Same for if there is a feature on a site you like, and you can isolate the script and see how it's done.

    true enough. But you can hook it up to a fixed computer and share it via wifi.

    Spoo specifically wanted wired.

    At $60, its an option for those who are budget constrained.

    thats all.

    style brethren: Help!

    Trying to list this leather jacket. Its a really nice vintage piece but its tagged a size 52 which I assumed was a US 40-42 equivalent, but this comes 4" short of closing on my size 40 mannequin.

    I worried that I might have bought a women's accidentally, but all the men's that have sold or are for sale have the same snap arrangement and the zipper pull on the left side.

    Shoulder is 19.25, BOC - 21.75, chest is 23, waist is 17.25 and sleeve is 23.75. But this is a leather jacket so the measurements will be larger because of the thickness.

    Any ideas about size? I think it fits like a 38 across the chest, maybe even a 36, but the sleeves are longer, the BOC is short.

    It might actually work. a jacket like that looks better unzipped. (well, to me at least)

    But it should also be pretty close fitting. The ptp is 1-2 inches more than what I have on my SC's.

    Side note, is that true for all moto jackets? I'm sitting on one right now that's way too tight zipped, but might be fine unzipped all the time. Not sure how I feel about not being able to zip up a jacket though haha.

    Do you ride? If not, don't worry about zipping.

    How the fuck do you take good pictures of a jacket that has a 60 inch chest on a normal mannequin? Holy crap.

    Hey guys, I just had a buyer on eBay request a return (original purchase price + shipping both ways) on a 3sixteen shirt because he is claiming that it's fake. According to him, the quality isn't as high as other 3sixteen stuff he's had and the label is blurred/faded (This was pictured, 1st one below). I honestly didn't think that they fake 3sixteen, and the shirt seemed pretty nice but then again I could be wrong. If anyone has some expertise in the SW&D field and can see if it looks off to you, I'd appreciate it.

    This made me laugh way more than it should have. I read this and only saw the top half and thought, "eh, looks good to me?" and then I scrolled. Maybe lay this one should get laid flat on the ground.
