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

    Hello Gentlemen,

    If you love American-made shoes - here is the holy grail pair. Vintage Florsheim's highest-quality line: The Royal Imperial once represented the pride and joy of American shoemaking. This pair is made of deep burgundy #8 color Horween Shell Cordovan leather. Cleaned and treated with Venetian shoe cream to moisturize and polish - this pair is ready to wear. Superb condition - shell rippling and creasing are present, but nothing of detriment. 360-storm welt makes for one sturdy shoe. The tongue of the shoe sees marks and discoloration, though not visible when worn. The 5-nail soles exhibit wear but are still firm. The V-Cleat heels are worn and should be replaced soon - as most choose to do with the so-called "suicide heels." :D. Made in the USA - price includes Priority shipping CONUS. Harder-to-find size 10.5 3E, feel free to utilize the measurements below. Shoe trees not included.

    Measurements:
    Length (along bottom end to end) - a hair under 12.75"
    Width (at widest point) - just over 4.75"

    I have 8 pair of vintage Florsheim Royal Imperials that have never been worn. They are the ones with the full leather soles and heals, and have the V plate in the heals. They vary in size from 9 E to 9 1/2 E, and are black or brown in color. All of them are these sizes because this is the size I wear. I started collecting them in the 1990s when they discontinued making them this way. They were hands down the best shoe made. Could you tell me what they are worth, and are you interested in them.
