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

    Please tell me that angels start singing and lights shine down from heaven every time you open that cabinet, because that's the way i envision it in my head.

    Wait, you smell that?
    So when are you going to show us some good shoes?

    Just kidding. That is awesome. While the cabinet is not my style, it is still a very beautiful piece.

    It's great to see some well worn shoes. They look like they've seen a lot of action! [​IMG]

    Are you still buying? or taking semi-retirement?

    I am one of the few that has been privileged to see the wooden structure that Andrew had built to store his shoes. here it is:

    All I can say is that it's North of NYC and overlooks a river. It's very crowded too.

    To the OP. Words fail me. Spectacular comes to mind.

    PS: I just noticed that it appears that you've worn most of these beauties and that you even have a black monk alligator pair. World class with great taste. Wow!

    Please do not take this the wrong way, but to clarify, my main cabinet holds a selection of 30 shoes which I can rotate every four to eight weeks or as I fancy. You might note that the Lobbs represent a range of years (the new, outlandish designs look better on your feet than in the catalog). I prefer to think that I am more organized -- some may say obsessive-compulsive -- than Andrew and I actually wear my shoes.

    I doubt that this suffices to bait Andrew, but let us try: I see your carpet and raise...

    See you at the Edward Green sale. Ray has already received this year's instructions.


    Out of interest, how do you look after your shoes in storage? By the time you get round to wearing Monday #1, you're some weeks down the track. Do you use a touch of neutral shoe cream or leather food, polishing and cleaning excepted? I'd be worried that the leather would start to gradually dry out. After all, they are expensive shoes and worth looking after!
