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

    And if you would wear it, is it something you can wear all year? I'm split on this. On the one hand, it seems a more flattering color than khaki. On the other, it's so much less cool than dark blue/black/charcoal.

    I think khaki/light brown suits/jackets look terrific on clean-cut, somewhat thin men. Unfortunately, heavy men don't look particularly good in those colors.

    While I personally don't look very good in earth tones,I think adding a brown suit to your wardrobe might be a nice change of pace.

    Not long ago I saw a beautiful medium brown w/beige chalkstripes,6 on 2 double breasted Brioni,in one of their ads. Absolutely stunning.

    I don't see any reason why you couldn't add a lighter brown suit for Spring,or a darker brown in a heavier weight for Autumn/Winter.

    Brown suits, one word springs to mind. Disgusting, [​IMG] I would not wear one if you gave me one free.

    A brown suit co-ordinates very well with a pink shirt. You should try it.

    It might change your life forever.

    Yes, and please wear brown shoes. It really brings out the beauty of the leather. Failing that, I'm sure a pair of sneakers would complement nicely.

    brown is a great color but it's not a good choice for a first or only suit. grey is probably the best color for this purpose.

    I've got a suit that is dark beige that I receive lots of compliments on. It's a great looking suit, made by St. Andrews. It's nowhere near a chocolate brown color (considerably lighter), for example, which I definitely do not like, except perhaps a tweed blazer in dark brown.
