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!

    Considering the amount of time spent on it, and what it says about how they regard their lives, it must profit you to disagree.

    I don't bother with thinking about how other people live their lives, much less how they dress.

    warning: ongoing digression

    What we call "free will" can be found in the way we subjectivize the objective historical conditions which determine the space of possibles we have access to. Or to put it more simply: I agree with you.

    I'm not sure we should all aspire to casual, just like I'm not sure we should all aspire to dress like Cary Grant. Certainly if we choose to pursue casual, a sport coat is probably not the right direction. On the other hand, Tira won the CM does SWD challenge wearing a sport coat.

    When I wrote "casual vibe," I was referring to the desirability to project a dégagé, relaxed feeling rather than an uptight one, which is nearly always beneficial whether in black tie or leading a board meeting. This can be done using everything from fabric choices to accessories.

    Of course, one should always dress for the occasion. If it's a casual occasion, you will usually look socially inept in tailored clothes.

    I like your way of thinking. [​IMG]

    bring on the next challenge!
    as this thread is to bridge the divide. let's keep it in the aspect of CM tries SWND.
    with a denim challenge?

    anyway, in on the next one. it would be nice to see more members ACTUALLY try. in the spirit of the thread.
    most fits were still "CM standard" (yawn) my own entry too admittedly.[​IMG]

    :(

    when was that?


    tell me about it!


    ya'know, i was kind of with some of your points, but then you had to be a dick about it. stick to your guns and try not to be condescending. it will lend to more credence and less back lash.


    isnt it tho?

    Look, read the sequence. Caustic Man called one of my posts the most absurd thing he had seen in his life. I responded to that with as much equanimity as it deserved, and Conradwu then attacked that post, treating me with more condescension than I could manage. At least recognize who was being attacked.

    conrad was joking around in his original, my man. tongue in cheek, i can assure you. maybe in the heat of the moment you missed the tone, but you lashed out quite unnecessarily imo, and at his personal business no less. beyond the pale, imo.

    Look, I'm sorry if I take this forum seriously. I guess I'm also sorry if I try to take time to make a serious point and expect to be met with more than condescension.

    Also, I object to the idea that people who profit off this forum are deserving of a greater level of respect than other members.

    Mo'Fuck is thoroughly unimpressed with the going ons in here.

    Thin Man, if you were trying to make a point for the sake of making that point and not just to start shit, fair enough. But it very much came across as deliberately antagonistic. Apologies if this wasn't the case.

    Regardless, I think we probably all agree that this forum is at its most productive when restricting our feedback to execution and avoiding comments on intent unless solicited.

    On a note to the point, there is something to be said for dressing with a certain nonchalance; it is certainly, professional restrictions notwithstanding, more socially appropriate provided it's neat and coherent. But a lot of folks are married, have set careers, have children, have a set circle of friends, and are generally old enough that none of our peers are going to be influenced one way or another by how we dress (as long as we avoid extremes).

    I suspect most of us have gotten to the point where we can dress how we want when we want without running the risk of negative social or professional consequences. Hence this forum runs smoothest when we focus on the "how."

    TTM - I was not saying that somebody who is an affiliate vendor deserves more respect than anyone else, I was saying that antagonistic remarks about somebody's business or personal life are beyond the pale, in my opinion. That is all.

    Wat.

    You realize you're the one going on about how tragic it is for people to spend so taking so much time/effort to win some contest on the internet forums.

    I simply said live and let live. I sell neckties so it's a pretty straight-forward thought process (shirt + tie = boom). I don't tell people or my customers how to dress, or command that they must wear my neckties with a cutaway collar shirt just because I dress that way.

    Members on this forum take time and effort because it's something they enjoy doing. Not everything is going to be a winner but it's all in good fun. The journey is more important than the end goal.

    Of course everyone has an opinion on on what they see on these forums. You can criticize and whatnot but there's no need for personal attacks.

    I will admit that I took it personally when Conrad Wu made fun of the idea there could be a tragedy in how some people approach this forum -- maybe I was being hyperbolic, but I take this place seriously, I take my posts seriously and I will feel antogonized when people ridicule me.
