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 think I've seen a portable sewing machine that looks like a stapler. Maybe I should fold up my pants and just have at it with that gadget.

    Just order from Vanda. Or check Hober. He's always great.

    Lol, make sure to post the results if you do! Actually, I have a sewing machine available. But I prefer to do it by hand. We're all looking for hand made garments after all, aren't we?

    Save your $$ for another Formosa and just use a plain ol' stapler. Quick AND frugal

    That's a houndstooth pattern rather than shepherd's check. I like both.

    Dude if you mean the shop at 7th and Pennsylvania SE how did you walk there that took you away from "civilized areas", unless you mean that the evidence of extreme wealth concentration presented by all of the multi-million dollar rowhomes is something that decent societies would not tolerate?

    If it is the same, btw, then I've used this shop before (I lived in Lincoln Park for 10 years) and I would trust Mr. Lee with hemming trousers, but probably not much beyond that.

    Suit Supply Navy Napoli cut suit arrived yesterday, everything seems to fit well. I think I need the cuffs taken up a 1/2" and the pants need to be taken up a few inches (maybe with 1.75" cuffs?). Not sure why I am tilted like that, 22 years in the National Guard should have taught me to stand up straight [​IMG]

    Where to? Don't leave Boston!

    I am at a conference now and I am quite underdressed. I saw business casual so no tie and no jacket. But everyone is in a freaking suit.

    "Business casual" is a trap. Best roll that burgundy tie out tomorrow to re-assert yourself.

    Business casual is such crap. Some people wear "dressy jeans" whatever the f*k that is and a polo. Some people wear a trousers and a blazer.

    I remember when my former employer banned jeans from "business casual" - people almost shit themselves with fury.
