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

    you'd be hard pressed to find a vendor whose website is 'reliable' during flash sales. Of course it's a bummer when things go out of stock after you've ordered (I've had that happen for a couple of sales in a row, a few months back when ordering online from an NY shoe retailer and an NY hipster boutique) - but online kopping on incredible deals are too much of a mad scramble for any mid-range inventory system to handle

    This, in a nutshell. Flash sales are a shitstorm and this one was particularly ridiculous.

    what is the reasoning behind a "flash sale"

    why drop shit to 90% off suddenly, instead of gradually cutting prices. Surely more money to be made that way with less hassle (crashing website, unfilled orders)

    I just received tracking for this pair in size 38, then got worried that they might be too big since my 3sixteen+ 11BSP size 38 are unsanforized while the SEXIHXLSXA13 are sanforized. Also tough to gauge if there will be small variations in sizing. I just snagged the last pair of the SEXIHXLSXA13 in size 36; I figure I'll move along whichever pair doesn't fit.

    I got my Que Pasa Shop order today - a Strike Gold denim western shirt. Unfortunately, the shirt's a bit too small. Hopefully next time they'll have measurements too.

    Had a cronut this weekend. Really nothing special about it (I confess I'm not really into donuts in general)
