    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!

    I want the tie to be rougher, to better work with the suit. And what an excellent suit. Tweed from Algiers...who'da thunk?

    +1 my own way of thinking - the blazer suit. I have a straight navy Fresco coming, with brown horn buttons. That's the attraction of the box check Fresco- SC + suit too. maybe not the trews separate tho.
    That SS with the contrast buttons and the texture would work as an SC as well. I'm wary of a top patch tho- my squares get claustrophobic

    Well, I thought this Cappelli tie was good for the job. And, no, tweed from England. Perhaps, I should think about working on an algerian tweed.

    I figured the tweed was from England. But I'm surprised that people wear tweed in Algeria. Or is that just wear the tailor is from? Regardless, it's lovely.

    Well, we hardly wear tweed, apart of SF members (me) and some old professors. Yup, the tailor is from Algeria and he offers some tweed cloths.

    By the way, thanks for the compliment!

    Edit: @Rudals so much good there cf. when you first started. One thing you can change is lengthening the sleeves. I think that's too much cuff showing. Though your sleeves might be riding up a bit.

    As long as the shirt has some nice texture to it, like a royal oxford or something, I am fine with the white shirt and a three patch pocket suit.

    Rudals. Now you need a signature pose.

    New suit day for me today, first time out:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    TM Lewin merino wool suit
    Louis Copeland shirt
    Brown Thomas paisley tie (about 10 years old at this stage)
    Paul Smith cufflinks
    Reiss silk PS
    M&S Sartorial shoes
    Emporio Armani dress watch

    The suit is super soft, softest and lightest material I've ever had for a suit. So I'm a little concerned about it keeping its shape, but so far after the best part of a day and several cab trips later, it is doing OK! The only slight issue I have is that its a tiny bit big on the shoulders (its a 42, I'm really more a 41) but as part of my work out routine I intend increasing my shoulder size, this should resolve itself! :)

    That is my signature pose. Open jacket and one hand in the pocket. Maybe I should have an accessory as well. I'll think of something good.

    evil - the silver tie looks a bit washed out against the white shirt to me, especially together with the similarly colored PS.

    rudals - nice fit, but you could benefit from a better camera angle. something more head on at chest level.

    Decided to break out the linen a bit too early.

    My Korean tripod isn't as good as other Kpods.

    NoOOooOOo. It has been officially documented by those that document such thing that Los Angeles' 405 and 101 are the worse freeways in the world! God I hate LA!

    Edit: I live in LA, so I get to have an opinion..and can compare the same to my living in San Francisco (10 years) and San Diego (9 years) which are so much better than anything about LA
