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,

    Dear Folks:

    Here I have six (6) lengths of tweed cloth from the historic trad clothier Chipp.

    Each should be enough for a sport jacket. All specs are in the listings.

    In general, the average man (size 40 to 42R us) will need 2.5 yards for a coat, 1.5 for a pair of trousers, and 1 for a vest (slightly more for plaids). Check with your tailor for recommended yardage for your body size.

    Please write with any questions you may have.

    Shipping $15 domestic, ~$40 international.

    Paul Winston is fine; just now focused on ties and other accessories.

    The cloth and other Chipp items I have on ebay are either purchases or consignments.
