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,

    Hickey Freeman. Custom made for one of their sales guys in the area, who's a dead ringer fit for me.

    Hah, that's awesome. I would love one with peak lapels. I have one with notch lapels and I think the gorge is a hair dated, but that won't stop me from wearing it!

    The pleasure was all ours, Cleav. Cleav is truly charming, and lunch went by only too fast.

    So sorry. Homburg doesn't pack well, and I was in Istanbul before London, and Istanbul would not have been a good place for a Homburg. I expect to be back in February in the UK, perhaps then I will wear it. (The other anticipated destination is Vienna, which would certainly work with a Homburg - the Viennese are very formal, in my experience.

    Many in Istanbul would see the Homburg as a symbol of Kemmalism or a style of a secular republic. A dangerous thing to be associated with in Turkey under the current Dictator. However, the Homburg would be very popular in America with Turkish people, as many educated and refined Turks are coming here to the states. At least that is my experience.

    Yes, but usually with a bit of irony to the formality. It's a Viennese thing.

    Sounds like a great trip, BTW. I look forward to some photos.

    Cheers,

    Must admit I had to google it. Still not sure whether el stitcho was paying me a compliment. Probably not.

    Sadly, I guess a "rapey look" is the old bugger's equivalent of "bedroom eyes". (My wife took the photo.)
