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!

    Very nice!

    One question though, is it the picture or are those pants too snug around the legs?

    Very flash.

    What's your line of work please, if you don't mind me asking? That outfit (nice as it is) would be too much for me. I put on an outfit: beige-y orange POW suit (very soft fabric), white FC shirt with beige multi-textured tie, brown McAfee wholecut/loafers. And I thought, I look *too* smart for work and quickly dressed down (charcoal grey Prada suit, same shirt/tie and black bicycle toe shoes) but then actually just shirt and tie, beige RLBL pants with brown suede RL shoes, because it's too hot really for a suit. Can't wait for Autumn

    Neapolitan pants, especially Borrelli are narrow by design and also display shoes/boots quite well.
    Maybe I will have to cut back on squats/lunges[​IMG]lol
    Thanks for the compliment [​IMG] "Very nice!"

    Just goes to show how far back I am in where fashion is . . . I guess it is all the hours spent just in the office (and not on this forum) over the past few years . . .

    I should do a pic of me so, all you guys can laugh . . .

    Too true...especially when most of the people in my dept don't wear a suit too work even...(too warm over here)...can't wait for autumn.

    Great outfit. Talk to me about the boots. How is the fit. I want to buy a pair but the one's I've seen say they are G fit. Are they wide?

    no difference just as warm![​IMG]

    but i like your look perhaps a bit more supression in the waist and the tweaking in the pants but overall looks good chap! also i am gland you did try to match you shoe and breifcase!

    You have very nice taste Soph.

    The amount of cuff showing is absolutely perfect. The shoes and breifcase are really stylish too!

    I think your overall look would look 100 times (ok...10 times) better if you went MTM or bespoke though. The size of the suit seems to fit, but the pants and jacket have a lot of small areas that are not quite right on your body. Of course, I am not saying it looks bad at all!

    Oh and 1 more thing...since you like Neapolitan style...how about some cuffs on the pants? I think wide cuffs on the pants will bring out the silouette on the pants and show off your shoes much better.

    -- Yes, its a Barantani- A great value, easily found on STP or Ebay for great prices. Great for the money.

    I use an insole to make them fit a bit more snug, which I like my boots to fit.
    9 1/2 G fit like an 11 D US imo.
    They are great business causal boots also.
