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,

    The Styleforum Team

    I'd get up from my chair wearing that and someone would yell "We're gonna have movies!"

    Steve -

    You'd look great in that suit paired with one of your panama hats!

    Well, maybe not that suit- a 46L might be better.

    That is a RIDICULOUS selling price. A used Polo selling for $300? I mean, it was a really cool suit, but . . . . Maybe its uniqueness upped the bidding.

    It's uniqueness is what kept me from bidding. That is a once or twice a season suit. $300 is pushing it for something that close to costume (IMHO). I'd have snapped it up at about half the price...

    Perfect for Ceylon or Burma.

    I disagree -- the suit was listed in "as new" condition. It's an ivory piece, and looking at the photos, especially where the pant and jacket cuffs are shown, it does indeed appear altered but unworn.

    I've seen used Oxxfords in rather tired cloth of suspect patterns sell for more than this. By way of craftsmanship there's no comparison between the two, but if you were in the market for a DB ivory suit of this character, given it's apparently new condition I can well understand how the buyer may find the price to be reasonable.
