1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    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.

    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,

    No, it's true. And by true I mean false. It's all lies. But they're entertaining lies. And in the end, isn't that the truth? The answer - is no.
    You are a true lawyer, my son.

    Those familiar with Shooman will note from that thread that he is full of lies.

    Monkey fur coats were very popular during the '30s, and '50s. It looks like human hair.
    The interregnum being due to the the guvmint's commandeering of all available monkey fur during the 40's for the war effort?

    There was also one of him in his bed, shirtless, which caused Vaclav great distress.

    Not sure what you mean there but any reference to that person strikes me a sick and utterly distasteful.

    I'm over 50 years old, but relatively new to SF. Does shooman ever post on SF, and where can I find his past posts?

    He sounds like a very astute observer of the Sartorial scene!

    Hence my devil icon. Besides, it was suitably ironic given the subject of this thread.

    He waw banned for making anti-Semitic remarks along with proposing a whole new way to stay healthy with urine drinks, and fruitful enemas. At one point, he was posting on the Film Noir Buff forum whereupon he has since no longer been active.

    Thanks for your response! I didn't know that! I hope he's staying healthy with his urine drinks! He sounds like quite a character!

    Those must be some really great shoes to prompt a thread this long.

    Yeah, I agree with you EL72. A reference to that person is much worse than any negative connotations of my Gorilla LouCostello BudAbbots.

    BTW: No one has asked, but the LC BA's(that's LouCostello BudAbbots to the uninitiated) are a gorgeous antiqued mahogany color, that make Berluti's look like Payless shoes!

    I've heard the leather is so supple you have to fold them to put them away, like socks.

    Thanks Doc, It's good to see a a man that "Get's it"! I'm in Houston, Tx. And that's the phrase Enron CEO Jeff Skilling used to say: "You either get it or you don't get it"! Jeff Skilling always got it, and now he's going to get 20 years!

    And please remember,for those wanting photographs. If you refer to the beginning of this thread, the immortal shooman in his first post made it clear that the 4 Iconic shoes(which started this thread after all) are only for the hoi polloi, and are strictly not to be photographed! I'm very scared to risk photographing my LouCostellos, though I assure you that they exist![​IMG]

    BTW: Jeff Skilling is one of the few people on earth to own all 4 of the Iconic shoes! Ken Lay(RIP) only had 3. And Bernie Ebbers, with all his bucks, only had 1 of the 4! See how rare they are!

    Here are the 4 immortals!!! and the fantastic hides they are crafted in!

    Vazcatti( Generally Persian Minotaur)

    Benutti( Baby NW Sasquatch)

    Vespatti(Mature Dodo)

    LouCostello(frozen African Gorilla) &(this is the correct Neapolitan spelling as opposed to shooman's Loucostello spelling)
