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

    My dress code includes a silver bow tie. Wish it were black, but that's what they do in my orch. I have BB and Carrot and Gibb bow ties, but I'm realizing that they're too small for my wide lapel zegna tux. Any recommendations? Self-tie and is a must, obviously. It also has to be only silver (no designs).

    Gotta love the albatross bow ties! Seriously though, maybe last year's TF. But it's rare to find a plain silver TF bowtie. Not sure a grenadine would be alright either...

    Can you not just get one made for you? Any tie manufacturers in Chile?

    I'm having a new dinner suit made and I'm getting a black bow tie made as well by Dion in Canada.

    I've had a tough time finding quality menswear here. I'm still looking for a bespoke tailor. I've even asked a fabric store that sold very nice fabric if they know of any tailors, and they said they didn't know of any.
