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

    I'm not sure what your problem is. It auto fills in the shipping and billing addresses when I put in my corporate membership. Have you tried making an account for the BB website and checking out while logged in?

    try clearing your cookies and doing it again. I had the same issue when I first did it but after shutting down the browser and going back in, it worked the second time.

    Nice! Shipping to Oz must be $$$. I hope you got a whole bunch of stuff to make the shipping worthwhile.

    The BB website is bonkers. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Safari on a mac is pretty much a nogo. Firefox works okay for me... if the site is working.

    And then there is their shopping cart system. Today, found The One True Suit I've Always Wanted and is In My Size in the clearance section. Added it to my cart, click click click, etc. Wanted to think about the purchase for a few minutes. Closed browser. Three minutes later, went back to site. TOTSIAWAIIMS still in shopping cart but now shows RED with quantity ZERO. Remove from shopping cart and sigh heavily. Console self by browsing B & S. Make several purchases. Check back on BB website several times and TOTSIAWAIIMS is still out of stock. Eat dinner and drink some beers. Check just one more time. TOTSIAWAIIMS magically reappears as in-stock. Click Click Click. Now it is mine.

    BB seriously needs to upgrade their infrastructure. This whole internet commerce thing has been pretty much figured out. If they want to market themselves as a world class clothing company they need to be world class with the selling stuff bit. Or they need to get bought by Sears.

    I know I risk the wrath of SF for having peculiar tastes, but I am totally stoked about the Madison Donegal 1818. It's brown. It's tweed. The fabric is from the UK and it's sewn together in Italy, in a classic American style. I can't wait. [​IMG]

    That is a great suit! I don't think anyone of SF would knock you for wearing it/buying it! It would be perfect for winter [​IMG]

    Now it is mine.

    I hope you get it, but I wouldn't count on it until it actually ships.
