    I'm also against it. I must say I don't understand this impulse to segregate (so seemingly common on internet fora). The logical end result would be very focused conversations involving only a handful of people (in other words, forum death). Hey, how about the Neapolitan Shoulder Forum?! If the shoe discussions and pictures bother you, perhaps you should take a bit of time to think about what might be drawing you to a clothing discussion board in the first place.

    If the members were overwhelmingly in favor, I'd consider it, so no big deal. But again, I think separate shoe forum(s) would just add to the confusion for members looking to get advice. I guess we could then make a "which shoes with these clothes and vice versa" forum for each S&D and MC...

    Early exit polls are not favorable to the shoe subforum lobby.

    No. No new subforum. What's next, one for ties, one for pocket squares, one for laces, one for braces etc...

    The endless debates on round vs. flat not to mention which brands are more handmade...

    Shit, I thought this was the "sub-forum for Pat Buchanan" thread.

    The separate subforum for shoes seems kind of pointless to me. Everyone who is interesting in dressing well is going to have a strong interest in good shoes and vice versa, so why isolate the shoe threads?

    i think we may just need a separate subforum for Santoni FAM exclusively.
    and another for Omega Seamaster watches.

    i think I will be the only one in there lurking, "Hello? is anyone here? "

    I'm against it. Easier to search for new threads when all is together...

    What's with you people and your insane love of shoes? I've never seen anything like it. It borders on the psychotic.[​IMG]

    Might be nice to clear the shoe freaks out of here. Improve the atmosphere and what not.
